Hi - went went to Hammam Ziani - it was great!! Check their site for the prices - and make sure to have the scrub, massage, and wrap!! http://www.hammamziani.ma/site%20final/ziani3%20anglai/HTML/index%20anglais.htm

We also went to Les Bains de Marrakesh - but thought it was a little too "touristy" and "posh". http://www.lesbainsdemarrakech.com/

Have a great time!

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Morrocan Dirhams

by MM212

Dirham is the official currency in Morocco. At the time of my visit in Nov/Dec 2006, the exchange rate was 1 euro = 10 dirhams; US$ 1 = 8.5 dirhams. Djemaa el Fna area has several banks with cash machines where one could withdraw dirhams. This is also the case along Avenue Mohamed V in Guéliz, the new city. However, many people will accept US dollars or Euros (including taxis) if one is not carrying dirhams. I suggest you bring a lot of small euro/usd change for tips or small purchases, just in case.

Handcrafted Leather Bags

by suvanki about Art De Sud- Daoudi Mohamed

As in my previous tips, This shop was a highlight of my holiday.

Mr Doudi Mohamed, is a Master Craftsman- his craft work is of high quality, reasonably (fixed)priced.

When I next visit Marrakesh, I'll definitely call here again to purchase more goods. Babouches- a wide range of styles/ colours to chose from

Handbags- various styles/sizes and colours- I was spoilt for choice, but eventually settled on 3- 2 to keep (as in the picture) and a red bag, like the black one in the picture for my Mother.

I use the 'yellow' one every day now, and it's very handy- plus it still smells wonderful- a reminder of my holiday every day!! I paid about £45 for all of these 3 handcrafted bags- A Bargain!!

A mythical place inside the downtown

by khalid_2 about Grand Café de la Poste

Built in the 20s at the French protectorate era, this place used to be a café, hotel and postal relay (where comes its name) located in the new city of Marrakech. It has been transformed later into a hotel-café-restaurant by the Glaoui pasha.

Recently restored keeping its pure tradition by the owners of the establishments La Cantine du Faubourg, Le Quinzième in Paris and Bô-Zin in Marrakech, the “Grand Café de la Poste” has brought back its charm and magic thanks to a sublime decoration.

This place offers calm ambiance where we taste some delicious meals (breakfasts, lunches, dinners), prepared by the two chefs Cyril Lignac and Sana Gamas, in the lounge, the mezzanine, the pergola or the terrace.

A brewery service is proposed during all the day.

Dyers District

by globetrott

This part of Marrakech is set a bit apart mainly because it has a terrible smell all over the place - big tubes filled with terribly stinking liquids and these poor workers put in and turn around and put in again and again the leather in order to make it soft and put color into it....

visit or stay at the famed Mamounia!

by angiebabe

yes if you have the money take the chance to experience La Mamounia! Winston churchill, amongst other notables, loved it too - all art deco and all recently redecorated - has lovely gardens, pool, the interior is just lovely and we didnt stay unfortunately but enjoyed our visit, martinis in the bar and roam around the gardens!
