Should I stay in medina Marrakech?
I want to travel to Marrakech next month and look for the best neighborhood to stay in. I want to visit the souks, the Bahia Palace, Jemaa El Fna Square, and the Agafai Desert. What is the best area to stay in Marrakech?
Should I stay in Medina Marrakech?
It depends! For easy access to the attractions you mention in your question, the Medina is a fantastic place. It is the historic center of Marrakech and home to the busy souks, Jemaa El Fna Square, and the Bahia Palace. Staying in the Medina allows you to immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere and explore these sights with ease.
The bustling nature of the Medina can be lively and vibrant, but may not suit everyone's preferences and wishes for a peaceful stay. If you prefer a quieter atmosphere, consider accommodation outside the Medina.
If you are looking for a very quiet area, it is better to stay outside the city, for example on the Route de l'Ourika (Ourika Road). In the morning you can take the shuttle minibus from the property to Medina. Most hotels in this area have a minibus that takes customers to the Medina every hour.
