Cheap and discount hotels and accommodation in Marrakech, Morocco

All Aboard the Marrakech Express

Morocco is a wonderful destination for either a short break or a dual centre holiday. Step back in time to a world of ancient civilisations, time honoured traditions, plus delicious & exotic food.

Marrakech is the jewel of the south, one of the four Imperial cities of Morocco, and an important cultural and commercial center set at the foot of the High Atlas mountains.

Marrakech is a city of vibrancy and solemnity, souk and square, palace and riad, mosque and garden. It is a city wrapped in faded red, ochre walls, and dominated by the Koutoubia mosque, visible from throughout the city.

At its center is the deservedly famous Djemaa el Fna - a public space unlike any found in any city in Morocco, or the world. In the evenings, as dusk approaches, the square hums with the activity of musicians, food vendors, storytellers, snake charmers, the curious, the odd. The spirit in the square is one of mystery, magic and possibility.

Our customer's tips and city guides for Marrakech:

"Le Jardin Majorelle is a must, so tranquil amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. There are so many great little patisseries and restaruants that you will never go hungry (I.E. Amandines, Keshmara). It is a vibrant, changing city and full of suprises. The open top bus tour is great but if you enjoy walking you will see much more by foot and save a pricey sum too! Becareful in the Souks, you may get a bargain but you could just as easily get lost! "
Miss A Christie of Warrington (Young couple) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Feb 2008

"If you are there to shop then go immediately to the government stores which are just up the street from the Islam. they do not haggle and give you a realistic idea of the price you should be paying for articles. The Lonely Planet has a walking tour in their book which is great. Go on a tour outside of the city into the Atlas Mt. but research your tour as the one I went on was great in alot of ways but was also limiting as you stop where the guide gets his best rate. Perhaps renting a car is a good idea. Or private driver and already have your route researched. "
Ms R King of Invermere (Mature adult friends) stayed: Islane Hotel, Jan 2008

"Be prepared for some hard bartering and don't be afraid of walking away if they won't shift on price. "
Miss G Hutton of Durham (Young adult friends) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Jan 2008

More customer tips and city guides for Marrakech:

"When visiting MArrakech I think it is important to consider if you really want to be inside the Medina. We stayed both in and out of it and thought that both were good but fulfill different functions. For more mature people we would recommend Amalay in Mohamed V. For younger people that like the buzz of the Medina, we would recommend to stay within the Medina. "
Ms A Echarte of Bristol (Young adult friends) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Dec 2007

"Dont go to this hotel. Do not stay in this area. Try to choose a place where there is 1 person at least that speaks fluent English otherwise you will have problems. It's definitely not the experience I was hoping for I was expecting a nice surprise. Next time I intend on doing my research before visiting a country especially the hotel I will be staying at. I am gob smacked. The reviews I read were all lies! "
Miss S Rajah of London (Young adult friends) stayed: Ryad Mogador Marrakech Hotel, Nov 2007

"If you wanted to get away to a green area there is one quite close, near the post office. "
Ms M Sanson of Croydon (Solo leisure) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Nov 2007

"Barter hard even with the taxi drivers but be polite and firm don't be afraid to walk away as you are likley to find the same thing in several other stores if it is over their cost price they will relent as you walk away! Have fun! Eat in the market place. Don't expect to find alchol in easy supply. "
Mr T Charlton of Tunbridge Wells (Young adult friends) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Dec 2007

" Take care when dealing with the market traders ! Can be viewed by Europeans as trying too hard to get money from us. Feel you are being robbed However the vast majority of local people very kind and helpful Try to see life beyound the tourist spots Its a beautiful city full of fascinating sights "
Mr A Scott of Ash Vale (Mature adult friends) stayed: Imperial Holiday Hotel, Dec 2007

"Don't trust anyone! The Marrakechies just love to overcharge, and so the best kept secret in the city is the going rate - for anything. Second is the way to anywhere, look a little uncertain, and you will be at Uncle Ali's market stall before you know it. Ask directions and they will try to charge for taking you there. We did not hire a guide, but I would consider doing so next time - Yes Next Time - I go. "
Mr C Woodward of Slough (Mature adult friends) stayed: Al Kabir Hotel, Nov 2007

"Go to Charly's cabana, Key west and Kechmara (excellent resturants and key west is a bar too!) Go to Majerelle garden, it's beautiful. Don't speak to locals unless you want them to be your tour guide...you'll see what I mean! "
Miss C Walmsley of London (Young couple) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Nov 2007

"Visit the medinas and souks. Great bargains can be found especially in silver jewellery and leather goods. Make sure you barter with them as the do try their luck at charging you high prices. "
Mr D Lake of Stanmore (Mature couple) stayed: Kenzi Farah Hotel, Oct 2007

"Imzi/izmi tours across the road. Open top bus tours start from stop across the road. One of the few places to sell local beer (and cheapest) 18mad for flag beer. "
Mr J Matthews of Colombieres Sur Orb (Mature adult friends) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Oct 2007

"Tips for the turits - Dont trust anibody there...everywhere they tray ask you money... Morrocco is amazing but if the people there tray to stold the money from the turists nobody will return there "
Miss I Caetano of London (Mature adult friends) stayed: Ali Hotel, Sep 2007

"Agree a price for everything in advance, otherwise you'll get completely stung. "
Mr E Hill of Stockport (Young couple) stayed: Riad Omar Hotel, Sep 2007

"Hassle is minimal compared to most mediterranean countries and egypt. People are friendly and not too pushy. Avoid eating at food dtells in centre of Djemaa el Fna where ther are loads of foreignors. Food is bad and incredibly overpriced. Look out for places where Moroccans are eating. "
Mrs J Mari of Bewdley (Mature adult friends) stayed: Ali Hotel, Sep 2007

"At the airport jump onto or wait for the l19 bus to Centreville same carpark as the taxis. Cost 20dh. Avoid the Taxis until you find youre feet. Get off at Djemma El Fna. Bus stops opposite Foucauld Hotel, theres a row of bus shelters and small park. "
Mr N Brayne of Banbury (Solo leisure) stayed: Islane Hotel, Sep 2007

"Walk and get lost in the city, it's the best way to see things! "
Miss M Moore of Bristol (Solo leisure) stayed: Hivernage And Spa Hotel, Aug 2007

"Bring your own towel as theres can be holey and bring ear plugs if your hearings good "
Miss A Male of Southampton (Young adult friends) stayed: Tachfine Hotel, Jul 2007

"Visit the local excursion/ ctm coach office just right on the corner of the hotel and book very cheap day trips to the coast and casablanca. Make very sure that any trips to far out places by train or coach that you find out the regular leaving times as some trips are only 1 or two a day! The main train service runs every 2 hours from marrakech - Casablanca - Rabat to Fes. Coaches are more infrequent as they journey to the desert and High atlas mountains and each trip takes 4 - 5 hours! If visiting the Cascades [ Waterfalls ] do not go at the weekend as it's populated by locals [ all men swimming] and extremly busy. If employing a guide make sure you tell them before you start you will only pay 25 - 35 dirhams and do not accept the fee of 200 dirhams. Visit during the week and take the coach not Grand taxi [ too exspensive]. Taxi's If the metre is not on in the taxi's ask for it to be switched on! And do not pay more than 30 -40 dirhams for a night cab home . If visiting Fes ask for a guide and go on a Friday Holy day from 9.30am and you will see sights that most tourists won't as the locals stay away for prayers. If your guide asks to take you to the Jewish quarters make sure he takes you to their Cemertary it's fab and most guides dont even tell you about them! Talk to the locals and shop in local Kasbahs which regenerates the community. Stay away from the Souk in the Jem naa Faa square it's much more exspensive and too much Hassling! "
Ms I Ali of Bethnal Green (Solo leisure) stayed: Oudaya Hotel, Jun 2007

"Always agree cab fare before getting in - they virtually always inflate the price (sometimes by treble), especially if you're carrying a lot of shopping from a day in the souks! There seems to be little you can do about being overcharged to and from the airport, however! "
Mr D Murton of Harrow (Family with teenage children) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Jun 2007

"Ask the riad to organise a taxi to collect you from the airport, we would never have found it otherwise! "
Ms S Watt of Edinburgh (Mature couple) stayed: Riad Karmela Hotel, Jun 2007

"Explore marakech "
Mr A Roshan of Stockton (Family with teenage children) stayed: Ali Hotel, May 2007

"Le Jardin de Tavernna dirrectly opposite (not the bar - the garden bit) was an open air restaurant tucked away as if it was inside a building. A beautiful ambiance for an evening meal and excellent food. Highly recommended "
Mrs W Male of Southampton (Solo leisure) stayed: Tachfine Hotel, May 2007

"Very near the centre, bus and train station. Easy to go anywhere. "
Ms E Rodriguez Desplobains of London (Mature adult friends) stayed: Ryad Mogador Marrakech Hotel, May 2007

"We found a riad opposite so same great location, better room and quiet at night. Breakfast wasnt as good but was considerably cheaper. Riad Omar is 500dirhams b+b only this was 360. its name is Riad Assia "
Mrs E Best of Great Wakering (Mature couple) stayed: Riad Omar Hotel, May 2007

"Buy water at supermarket around the corner. Trip to Atlas Mountains via Hotel was disorganised. Taxi to Medina from hotel Dnr20 don`t pay more. New town shopping good value for money (fixed prices) "
Mrs T Miles of Bristol (Mature couple) stayed: El Andalous Hotel, May 2007

"Its a great city. "

"Lock your door with a chair or something if you are inside. "
Miss L Conejero of London (Young couple) stayed: Ryad Mogador Marrakech Hotel, Apr 2007

"This place is great value for money with a fantastic location. "
Ms C Rebecca of Aberdeen (Mature couple) stayed: Ali Hotel, Apr 2007

"Take care when crossing the roads! A little piece of tranquility - Jardin Majorelle Cafe Arabe - for a lovely meal Hotel Tazzi (think that was how it was spelt) for a good value beer before dinner in the square Dinner at the Djemaa El Fna square on the tressel tables was good value and no tummy upset! Saadian Tombs and Palaces are worth a visit too Great place for a three day visit "
Mr A Young of Haywards Heath (Mature couple) stayed: Islane Hotel, Apr 2007

"Be prepared. There's lots to do, so an itineray is often helpful. Do not be intimidated by beggars or hustlers, on the prowl for easy pickings. Do not be afraid to discuss taxi fares with the drivers, as there are so many of them there to chose from; If you think someone is fleecing you, simply walk away. Catch the Marrakesh Tour Bus, as it gives a good overall impression of the city, and is very cheap. The fruit juices are amazing and are definetly worth the price. "
Mr M Rashid of Leicester (Young adult friends) stayed: Al Kabir Hotel, Apr 2007

"I would return to this hotel "
Mr M Hayes of Christchurch (Mature couple) stayed: Islane Hotel, Apr 2007

"Make sure you spend all of your Dirhams before you leave since they are not accepted at the airport. Think this is a real con but true! Luckily, we were told before by some friends that had been. "
Name withheld of UK (Mature couple) stayed: El Andalous Hotel, Mar 2007

"You better learn French or yoiu'll be at a loss. "
Mr T James of Luton (Young couple) stayed: Ryad Mogador Menara Hotel, Feb 2007

"Taxi from airport to city should be no more that 100dh we got ripped off and charged 150. Crossing the road is hair raising. When the green man is showing the traffic only stops going one way so that when you reach the middle of the road you have to stop and wait for the other lanes to stop before you can continue crossing. If there are no lights beware, no one stops for you because you are on a pedestrian crossing. The moroccan people are very friendly but only a few speak a little English so making yourself understood can be a problem however the city is amazing and well worth a visit. The medina and the souks are a must especially at night. With the smells from the spices and the music from the acrobats and snake charmers ect the atmosphere is brilliant. Keep to the brightly lit tourist areas and you will be fine. There is a lot of hassle with people trying to sell you things but if you say a firm no they will usually leave you alone. There is a strong presence on the streets of tourist police who patrol in twos and keep and eye on things. A trip up to the atlas mountains is a must. The first part of the trip is through the valley where you see the people living a very simple life in the mountain villages but make sure when you book your trip that it goes right up to the snowline. We also took a train to Casablanca which is a three hour journey. We left Marrakech at 7am and got back at 9pm The return journey cost a total of £21. The second biggest mosque in the world is in Casablanca and you can have a guided tour and take photos at certain times of the day. Getting a taxi for the day is the best way of seeing the important sights ours cost us 600 dhs which is around £40 and well worth it. Casablanca is a big place. Drink bottled water and order the small bottles. We were informed that in some places they bring a large bottle and pour some for you so that you dont realise that its not sealed they then refill the bottle from the tap then sell it again. We had a great time and even in February the weather was warm and sunny.It was a real experience so go for it and enjoy. "
Mrs J Meakins of Lincoln (Seniors (65+)) stayed: Amalay Hotel, Feb 2007

"Do visit. I was nearly put off by reports in guides that there was a lot of hassle from sellers/ pickpockets etc. I had no probs whatsoever. I was told that there are now plain clothes tourist police which has stamped out the problems. A lot of work has gone on in Marrakesh to re- juvenate gardens/parks and buildings. "
Mr D Barton of Hereford (Solo leisure) stayed: Islane Hotel, Jan 2007

"Let go and relax (although not with your bags!) In Marrakech. It would be very easy to become uptight and not let yourself go, but if you do it's an amzing amazing place. Eat from the food stalls (they are all Health and Safety checked now), banter with the waiters, haggle to an extreme level in the souks. Learn a few words of Arabic. We saw so may expensive reatuarants and hotels, where in fact you'll never see the real Marrakech, which has so much to offer. "
Miss A Tupman of London (Young couple) stayed: Tachfine Hotel, Dec 2006

"Barter, Barter, Barter! From the minute you get off the plane be aware that whatever you are buying the locals will try and charge you about 10 times the realistic price for goods or services. Do not take anything as a "present" as you will be expected to pay for it and always agree on a price before accepting goods or services. "
Miss K O'Brien of Inverness (Young adult friends) stayed: Agdal Hotel, Dec 2006

"Where you can, always agree prices for things up front, otherwise you might be in for a few surprises. Unfortunately, even if ordering from menu's with prices, you have to keep your wits about you since they will sometimes try overcharge you (specifically in Marrakech) "
Mr S Allen of London (Young adult friends) stayed: Riad Omar Hotel, Dec 2006

"See the new part of the city as well as the medina, and do visit their beautiful gardens, they're well worth it. Learn some rudimentary French, and above all, keep your sense of humour! "
Ms D Daulby of Greenwich (Mature adult friends) stayed: Riad Moucharabieh Hotel, Dec 2006

"Use a guide book, or trusted local, to advise on prices then haggle until you reach the price you want. Always ask for a written bill in restaurants as the first, often verbal, total typically bears little relationship to what you actually had! "
Mr J Geall of London (Young couple) stayed: Ryad Mogador Marrakech Hotel, Dec 2006

"Get an official guide first so all the 'Faux' guides don't constantly hassel you ... it is very intimadating and they are solely after your money. Its better to pay an official guide up front and let him show all the sites of the Medina. Outside the Medina in the new town you won't need one ... its a bit more civilised but then it also has a Mcdonalds that kind of lets the side down a bit ... but what city doesn't now! Ignore the Arabs in the Medina main market square (Place Jamaâ El Fna) they make you where there hats that spin around, play their cow bell instruments really loudly, get you to give them your camera so they can take photos of you looking like a right idiot then when you've had enough of being completely humiliated they demand money off you, and no matter what you give them its not enough and they look at you like you filth. Just what you want when you go on holiday .. I don't think! Don't get lost in the Medina ... we did and it got a bit scary ... everyone knows your lost and will try to get money out of you to show you the way back to your Riad/ hotel but you just don't know whether to trust them. "
Mr J Regan of London (Young couple) stayed: Riad Moucharabieh Hotel, Nov 2006

"Take the tourist bus on both routes, 24 hours tickets for £8 stops at all the main attractions and you can hop on and off and catch the next bus, they are every half hour and the blue route takes you into the desert which was fantastic. "
Miss A Griffin of London (Solo leisure) stayed: Ali Hotel, Nov 2006

"Taxi drivers are scam. Ask them to use the meter machine! Otherwise pleasant city "
Mr M Haque of London (Young adult friends) stayed: Agdal Hotel, Nov 2006

"Marrakesh is a beautiful city and offers a lot to visitors to see and experience Arab culture. "
Mr B Sharma of Harrow (Solo business) stayed: Ryad Mogador Opera Hotel, Nov 2006
