“Nothing Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

It is not a proper attraction but just a station where you can get a train to your next destination. The station has some eating options if you want to grab a bite before leaving. The station is right next to the Supratours bus stop where you can catch a bus for other destinations. make sure you purchase tickets in advance for dates which could be a holiday.

“Stop for the Supratours busses to Essaouira”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

The station is very clean and organised , with the office for Supratours based next to the entrance. If you want to travel comfortably and not too expensive ,the Supratours busses are the best solution. You have to book in advance ,at least 24 hours I guess. There are a couple of busses going per day ,all with air con ,for about 70 Dirhams. The actual bus station is further down the street next to hotel Ibis. If you have luggage you have to book it in for some Dirhams before you get on the bus.
We did Marrakech - Essaouira and return ,but they do a couple of other destinations too.

“Far better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

It was a pleasure arriving, finding the ticket office and passing through. I thought there was no taxi rank when I walked into the station, however, discovered it is out of the left door as you exit the trains. Beware of the ubiquitous Moroccan hustlers as you leave the station - they charge more than double the going taxi rate!

“McDonalds in Marakesh”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Went to the McDonalds in the new part of marakesh (sept 2013), the taxi driver tried to put us off saying it was terrible, we took it this was a ploy to take us to a 'cousins resturant'. However after ordering our food, we found the taxi driver was telling the truth, the service was appalling, the food was disgusting, fries that resemble large match sticks, chicken royale was so dry you had to take a mouthful of water with each bite, the 1/4 pounder I had, saw me spend the evening sitting on the WC. We tried to complain, but could not be understood as we do not speak French, and the assistants in there were plain ignorant and rude. We ended up giving the food to a couple of children begging outside. This has to be the worst McDonalds I have ever been to, and I certainly would not recommend it.

“Train travel is easy in Morocco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We came to the station a few days ahead of our planned trip to Tangier to be sure we could get tickets for the sleeper cars, which was an excellent bargain, by the way, approx. $35 each for the 11 hour overnight trip. The station is new, there are a few shops, including an ice cream café and good ole' McDonalds if you overspend in the souks and need a quick cheap meal! The ticket officers were very helpful and the station was immaculate.
