  • this is such an interesting place with the food stalls, music, snakes etc. It has a different character each hour of the day.

  • The Medina is the place to stay or at least spend your time in if you really want to see Marrakech. The area outside the medina is sterile by comparison. The Medina is mental - so many people...

  • Incredible place but be careful. Best way to describe it is you will meet one person who will be the friendliest person you've met then the next person will do everything they can to rip you off. You are a tourist and they see you as cash and that's how they survive.
  • At least to live here is definitely a bad idea: the place is already packed and doesn’t need extra people. Seriously. Maybe one day of walking around is ok (though I also doubt it for many reasons), but even the most beautiful and welcoming Riad wouldn’t repair the fact that you are in the middle of an extremely busy place where people not only work but also live.
