  • The old town is interesting to do with all its side streets. Looks like that at the time, homes were built without planning of the traffic lanes. It creates a charm. However, as tourist, it's a little scary to find themselves in isolated corners.

  • CHAOS is what it is the square of Marrakech. Beautiful, very characteristic, in piazza are any character possible, imaginable, there's always music and people, attention to scooters. The vendors are very assilanti, for this take off a star because they become irritants. In marrakech, however I made a lovely trip.

Where to stay in Marrakech

Marrakech boasts a huge number of lodgings, concentrated mostly near the medina or in the "Ville Nouvelle." For a budget-friendly stay, opt for one of the hostels or affordable hotels that line the historic quarter's narrow alleyways. Many travelers choose to stay in a restored mansion that serves as a hotel--you'll find this type of accommodation plentiful in Marrakech. In the new part of town, you'll encounter a number of quality mid-market hotels with modern facilities.
