“The beautiful Gare Routiere”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Whether arriving or departing Marrakech by train, the Gare Routiere is a beautiful building in which to do this. The huge glass front ornamented in a modern version of tradition patterns allows an unobstructed view; Slender fluted colomns soar to the ceiling; Decorative polished tilework gleams on the floor. Situated within the Gare are several fast food outlets as well as a pattisiere, a pizza cafe & restaurant on the upper level and Luigi’s, an excellent Italian restaurant. On the ground floor level is an Information Centre, a Post Office, a Phone outlet and a shop selling drinks, snacks, magazines & newspapers.

If you are continuing your travels, the SupraTours Bus Depot is part of the station complex.

This is one of those landmark train stations....well designed & fitting of the traverse from old to new...modern but keeping to true Moroccan sensibility of style...

“Most pretty station I've ever seen.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

A beautiful station, however that's all it is, its not really a tourist attraction. Although you can get to different cities for a reasonable price and the train in first class is pretty good.

“Nothing special but useful.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

The architecture is nice but inside it's just a modern train station. However, if you need to get a bottle of water or to withdraw cash it's very safe, has security guards at all times and gives you a break from the sun.

“Nice”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

It's a beautiful building, but because of it's new style nothing super special. The opera house in front of it is more worth looking!
