hotel akabar and ville nouvelle?

by ezmee

Hi - does anyone know anything about the hotel akabar in marrakesh? Its in the Ville nouvelle area - what I want to know is - is that walking distance from the old town?

Have looked at riads but having to go budget and this looks quite a good value hotel, tried google and nothing.

Any advice helpful. Thanks!!

Re: hotel akabar and ville nouvelle?

by johnsakura

new town is quite far from the centre ville marrakesh, but you can just take a cab everytime you atually go out of the hotel of course. altough you should try getting a hotel in the medina which are cheaper and put you inside marrakesh real action as you go out the hotel door.
you can get rooms near the medina in nice hotels for about 10/15 euros with private bathroom, no privat bathroom will cost about 5 euros.

Hotel in Marrakech

by diana_renou

Hi, I will need a hotel in Marrakech. Good location, safe, for no more than 70 euros per night for a single room with private bathroom. Does anyone know a hotel like that? Many thanks for your help. Diana

We stayed in Riad Safran (in the Medina) for about 600 dirhams and were very satisfied with our stay.

I stayed in hotel akabar (bairro heritage) a green part of marrakecht,i payed 45 euro for a double,for about 45 euro and even less you can sure find a very good hotel,
heritage is between the medina and the gardens van menara,it means you can walk through quite green residencial quaters,till the ensemble artisanal and cyber park
I think you have to choose first which quarter you want to stay medina of new city fone 212 5244437799

depends when you are visiting but is a good option but they book ahead quite in advance as so many people have cottoned on to their excellent value. Also hotel sherazade is good. Also of course the previous posts recommmendations.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Off The Beaten Track - bargain shopping!

by suvanki

While wandering around the Mellah and Medina one afternoon, I came across this man and his shop- on the pavement were displayed various terracotta products, including tagines.

I'd been thinking of purchasing a tagine during my trip, but the ones I'd seen were glazed and patterned in souvenir shops. The rustic nature of the ones on sale appealed to me.

This man and his colleague didn't speak any English, or much French, but they were very friendly, giggling like 2 school boys, when I asked if I could take their photo, after I'd purchased my tagine for about 65 pence!!!! plus they sold me some black olive oil soap, and a terracotta foot scraper- all together, my purchases cost less than 1GBP !!

Afraid I can't remember exactly where this shop was, but I remember it was very close to the city walls, probably heading towards the tanneries.

its been said a thousand times...

by lucyt about Djemma el Fna

...but it is still true: the Djemma is the best place to eat.
With the coming of dusk the square is populated by a fresh sea of faces as countless cooking fires start and throw their smoke to the sky. For less than a fiver a head you can eat well and people watch at your leisure.
One word of warning: it is better to eat early in the evening as a lack of running water means that glasses and cutlery are washed in the same water all evening.

Scholarly place

by puerto_lover

An islamic school. A medersa. (or madrasah) A place for thought, study and devotion. The study of the Koran and Sharia Law. Originally founded in 14th century but present buildings date from 1565. Students chambers surround the central courtyard where at one end the domed prayer hall with the arched niche indicates the direction of Mecca. It was apparently used as recently as 1962 but is now a beautifully preserved monument to the past.

Rue de Bab Agnaou

by mafi_moya

This is the main shopping street off Djemaa el-Fna, full of cafes, cheap hotels, and guys selling everything from cheap CDs to knocked off watches. I suppose it's a bit like Khao San Road in Bangkok. It's a great people watching place as you sip a coffee and munch on a shwarma kebab. In the early evening though it's a bit like a Paris catwalk - local teenagers strutting about in the latest designer fashions and sunglasses amid the palm trees and shiny paving.


by frenchlondon

This place is the centre of Marrakesh. At night, street vendors, artists, tourists and local are all around the place. The food is cheap but - sorry to sound a kill joy - i would not advise to eat fish or meat from this place. Flies are all around and the heat can surely be no good to fishes.
