“Hammam Ziani, Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Don't let the front entrance or the website of this hidden treasure detour you. We stumbled on this little treasure whilst walking the streets of the jewish quarter. After four men enticed us to come in and look, we got a small tour of a very authentic and traditional raid. When we returned that evening we were given tea upon arrival, a small basket filled with towel, road, slippers and disposable panties and the most wonderful, personal and real service we have had yet to experience. The women who serviced us we the sweetest and had hands of gold. REALLY! I am rating my aragon oil rub as one of the best I have ever had. The environment was relaxed, inviting, clean and fun. It was a first for my 15 year old daughter and the women could not have been more wonderful and made her feel so comfortable. Fantastic service. BEST prices. For 540 dir. we left feeling like a million bucks!

“nice to be off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

seemed like a more authentic version of the medina. kids were playing in the streets and it just felt more like a normal place where people live without the tourists. Went into the jewellery quarter and had some lovely jewels - gold and silver - to salivate over. Worthhile, definitely.

“really fascinating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

It was market day- and all the locals were shopping. The most realistic experience so far. Not touristy. Streets are fascinating and show real life

if you want to see how leather is treated then you have to visit this place. It smells terrible but a very good experience.

“Good to visit!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

You might just as well, it was interesting to see where the Jews live and their place of worship. It's a shady neighborhood with narrow alleys, dirty and smelly. There were a lot of tourist when we were there in the courtyard and in the church, must have been an important day or something for the Jews.
