I gave it a 5 star but it could easily be a 2 or 3 star. Some will like it; some won't. It's a glimse into life centuries ago and the way it used to be in the medinas. We were with a group of about 35 and went twice to the area. First, we took a carriage ride and... More

Amazing. Full of life and character. Sights, smells, tastes and colour! People everywhere, and you need 360degree vision to take it all in!

We stayed in the medina - do not be tempted to stay in the new town. Get the real feel of Marrakech by staying in the medina. It is an old walled town with very narrow streets. Many small Raid hotels (try Riad Capaldi), very friendly people, fascinating and beautiful sites, good restaurants. The medina is quite small so you... More

More relaxed than medina of Fes, it is a good place to wander and spend time shopping or just looking at all the colorful things. Go deeper for cheaper prices.

The square was full of street sellers invading your space and following you along, even when you told them no. It was also dirty and smelly from the various animals that were present. After walking around the (much more interesting) souks theres nothing new to see in the square either.

This Medina or town is of average size much smaller than the one in Fez but larger than Casablanca's. Remember this is not going to be like your home town market, this is a very different culture, so explore and understand. It is smelly, dirty, has beggar's, lots of animals and shops. We walked from our hotel past the Mosque... More

Be ready for hassle! Very bustling (as expected) but you will be approach very frequently by children, men & women asking for money; trying to sell something, or trying to tempt you. Be aware of pick-pockets!

I went to Marrakesh after Fez, and I must to say that I did get a little bit scared of the medina. Much bigger, tourist and chaotic than Fez. They allow the entrance of motorbike and one must be careful not to get hit. But it is very characteristic and I think that represents very well the spirit of the... More
