I'm planning on traveling to Marrakech in early June with my girlfriend. We are looking at Riads and there are so many amazing options in Marrakech. We found one we are particularly fond of, but it's not located in the actual medina, but in the Bab Doukkala district.
Is this area safe? Is it close enough to the medina to walk? We are from New York City, so we are very used to long walks, so I expect it won't be a problem.
Also, are taxis readily available in the area? I just don't know the city, and would like some feedback as to the area. Anyone stay in that area on your trip to Marrakech?
