“Hubbub of activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The former site of public executions (pre 19th century) has become the centre point of old Marrakech. At night there are thousands of people eating at the huge number of food stalls that have been erected. This is surrounded by streets of shops and the souk.
We found the whole experience most exhilarating. It is just a place to enjoy the ambience, and food.

“Dirty, dusty and smelly, nothing to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

If sitting in overpriced cafes watching beggars and being bothered by hawkers is your thing whilst being wafted by the smell of horse urine then this is the place to visit, otherwise go to the Badii Palace or stay in the new city.

“Watch the city change shape from from morning to evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

You cannot go to Marrakesh without a visit to the main sqaure. By day snake charmers, horse and carts, orange juice stalls and balcony drinks overlooking the hustle and bustle and watch it transform in the evening with story tellers, music, food stalls. My words do not sum up how magical and magnifcient this square is.
