Hotels in Marrakech, Morocco - your base to discover the city.
Marrakech HotelsThe beautifully preserved colonial city of Marrakech mixes the wonders of the old with the indulgence of the new. The third largest city in Morocco, the sandy hued buildings and bustling streets contain a wealth of markets and street vendors peddling everything from intricate rugs and trinkets, to fresh, fiery local cuisine. There's also a huge amount of culture and history hidden away in the Old City, along with a number of beautiful open spaces and gardens for everyone to enjoy. Things to seeIf you're planning a visit to Marrakech, then in addition to wandering the bustling, winding alleys of the Medina and its Souks, taking a walk through the vibrant crowds that gather in the vast open space of the Djemaa El-Fna is an absolute must. Whether it's in the glittering lights of an orange soaked sunset, when performers, musicians and storytellers gather to bathe the surrounding area in music and song, or during the warm afternoons where a cacophony of trader's voices fill the air, it's a truly unique experience. After the bustle and energy of the Souks, a visit to the pale white pillars of the Museum of Marrakech can be a welcome counter point. The Museum itself is something of an attraction, being a converted 18th century palace, in addition to the traditional Moroccan cultural artefacts housed there. The gently shimmering waters of Menara Gardens, makes the perfect spot for a peaceful stroll away from the crowds.Hotels in MarrakechWhen it comes to hotels in Marrakech, you're spoilt for choice. You'll find all kinds of accommodation, from discount pads to luxury hotels in Marrakech – so whether you're saving your spending money for the buzzing Souk markets or looking to splurge, you'll be catered for here. Even the more boutique hotels tend to have a swimming pool and bar, perfect for freshening up in the heat, and you'll find free WiFi in the public spaces of most hotels. You can also enjoy a complimentary breakfast on a rooftop terrace as the sun bathes the city in its morning warmth. Where to stayIf you're looking for affordable but pleasant accommodation with easy access to the main attractions of the city, then the numerous Riads (guesthouses) located in and around the Moolay Mousa can be a good choice for solo travellers or couples. If the history and culture of the city is at the top of your list, then staying in and around the Medina, or old city, is the best choice. You'll also still be close to attractions such as the markets and Djemaa El-Fna here too. For those after a little seclusion, the Hivernage area is close to a number of gardens.How to get to MarrakechMarrakech-Menarah Airport connects to most major cities around the world, and is only 3 miles from the city. To get to your hotel, it's often best to get a 'petit taxi', as these are smaller taxis that operate in the city, and usually charge a little less. If you're already in the country, then heading to the station in Avenue Hassan II is easy from Tangier, Casablanca, and Rabat, with journey times around 2 hours. The city itself has plenty of bus services, and 'petit taxis' to get you around, although much of the Medina is explorable on foot too.
