    Best Riad in Medina Marrakech

    by

    You couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Riad Dollar Des Sables is right in the heart of the Medina in a small alleyway behind the Souk - a prime location!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The staff were fantastic - thanks to Fouad and Sala who really made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It's a shame that we did not meet the owner Cathy to whom all the reviews raved about.

    Our room was quite big, the bathroom was lovely, breakky yummy and the roof top was a lovely place to relax after a hot day sightseeing.

    Tip - Make sure you book to be met at the airport and be driven to the outside of the Medina where the staff will meet you and show you to the location ..... as you would get lost trying to find it by yourself. We are glad that we did this.

Hi, to get to Place des Ferblantiers (Square of the lampmakers) if You use Koutoubia Mosque as Your starting point, head down Ave Houmman El Fetouaki, pass the covered market on the right, and at the end of the road is Pl des Ferblantiers.
It's in front of the Badi Palace and slightly South West of Palace Bahia in the Mellah area.

Hoping this is useful.
Best Wishes,

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Be Prepared For A Long Wait At Customs

by 43beckos

You know how you hate those people who, as soon as the pilot has turned off the fasten seatbelt sign, dash to the plane door to get off, well if you want to stand any chance of getting through Marrakech customs in less than 45 minutes, you need to become one of those people.

It's not that the customs officers are slow, it's just that they have to complete a lot of paperwork before stamping your passport.

But hey your'e on holiday, whats the rush.

At Ménara Airport

by vtveen

To/from Marrakech by plane:

During our second visit the arrival and departure hall was enlarged.
The airport is just a couple of km’s from the medina.

Arrival
- After disembarking from the plane everybody has to fill in a form in the arrival hall (or as we had the second time in the plane) with personal and travel information. You can imagine what happens if four planes are arriving more or less at the same time.
- Control of this form and passport; you get a stamp and a number in your passport. Be sure you get that stamp(visa) in your passport, otherwise you get problems when leaving the country !! The number seems to be important when checking in at your hotel.
- You have to pick up your luggage.
- After customs you enter a hall with ATM's and two ‘Bureau de Change’ for changing your money into Moroccan Dirham. Here are also the desks of the car rental companies.
If you are picked up by your accommodation, somebody from the hotel or a taxi driver will wait here with a sign.
- In front of the building, at the car park, are ‘petit taxis’ waiting for passengers. You can’t miss them. The ‘normal’ price for a ride to the city is about 80-100 Dirhams.
(There is also a bus connection with the Jemaa el Fna.)

Departure
- Of course you first have to check in for your flight at one of the desks.
- Everywhere in the departure hall you will find forms, which has to be filled in (more or less with the same information as at your arrival)
- Only in the departure hall are exchange offices for changing your Moroccan money. It is no problem to change all your left-over money, because in the shops and cafés in the departure lounge you can pay with (at least) euros and a credit card.
- Next step is a customs officer, followed by the inevitable security check
- At the passport control you have to hand over the form and get another stamp in your passport
- In the departure lounge you will find a couple of shops and two cafés, which also serve (warm) snacks.

Refreshing Orange Juice!

by Gillybob

After walking around the souqs (and eventually finding your way back out), why not take a stroll through Place Djemma El Fnaa and enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice from the plethora of vendors here. You will find plenty of carts stacked high with oranges (alongside others stacked with dates) - take your pick they all offer more or less the same.

A fresh orange juice (cool and refreshing) will cost you around 3Dhs (June 2007 prices) and see you on your way to your next destination.

Qzadria Square or Place des Ferblantiers

by vtveen

The Qzadria Square is a small pedestrian only - means rather quiet - square officially belonging to the Jewish ‘Mellah’ quarter of Marrakech. Its name can de translated as ‘tinsmiths square’ and the square with its palm trees is indeed surrounded by shops and workshops, where craftsmen are busy making new and more lanterns; most of them in traditional Moroccan style.

Just north of the court - halfway on the way to Bahia palace - is the 'Sagha', a jeweller’s souk, but during our visit most of the shops were closed. Also nearby is a covered market - Souk el-Kheir - with a lot of food stalls, also selling chickens and other small stock. The stench inside the market was terrible and we had to ‘flee’ after a very short visit.

Qzadria Square has a couple of cafés/bars and is a nice place for a drink or a lunch. It is not as overcrowded and touristy as Jemaa El Fna.

Medieval Myths & Mystery of Marrakesh

by Sambawalk

"Djamaa El Fna - Square"

Your trip to Marrakesh is not complete without visiting Djemma el Fna. Your travel guide book tells you all actions and activities that they have here in the square. Mostly I would say virtually everything. Be careful your your personal belongings and touts during the day and particularly at night.
