So its destination north Africa, Morocco and the name Marrakech just rings right. And so it should, because it has not become one of the top holiday destinations in the world for any small reason. Our role in all this is of course to open the door to the best hotel deals in Marrakech, because though we are sure high accommodation standards are not negotiable, neither is a great price tag. Whether you require the top hotels in Medina or somewhere less busy in Hivernage, we believe you should, and make sure you do pay as little as possible. Do a price search and you'll see the point we're trying to make.
Top 5 Star Hotels & Riads
Angsana Riads Collection
Riads for privacy near Jemaa el Fna. Live in traditional Moroccan aristocrat style.
So, now that you decided this exotic city is next on your bucket list and your biggest concern, namely the best accommodation deals is out the way it is time for the more exiting stuff, namely where in Marrakech you should stay.
Should it be in a traditional Riad which is a Moroccan styled house with an inner garden courtyard which could accommodate large groups and some even with your own private pool? Or should it be a more modern western style hotel? Should it be near Jemaa El Fna market's bustling streets or somewhere you can escape to tranquil seclusion?
If you prefer the exotic vibe of the pulsating streets of Jemaa El Fna there is no better option than staying in The Medina, featuring many luxury Moroccan Riads. It is historic and the heart of Marrakech surrounding the central market, a bubbling pot of activity assaulting the senses which is the reason people come to Morocco in the first place.
If you are concerned about noise, you will find your Riad a sanctuary of calm in which to shut out the seeming chaos and teeming streets and the market quiets down at 21:00 pm.

Nevertheless, if the amount of action is not for you, 5 star hotel deals in Hivernage or Gueliz, both located adjacent to Medina and a 20 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna market square might be just what you're looking for.
Irrespective of its close proximity, the wide palm tree lined lanes of Hivernage is a world away from the teeming narrow streets of Medina and Jemaa El Fna. It is more laid-back, feature mainly large top hotels, many boutique shops and will be a welcome reprieve after a few days in Medina.
If you prefer staying in a quiet area, Gueliz is where life takes on a more modern and western approach. You won't have the typical Marrakechi experience, but it is close by. Also, if you will be staying long enough, splitting your time between staying in Medina and quiet Gueliz could be a good idea.
It may not be for all, but since you may be arriving in Morocco via Casablanca you may as well stay over, check out the nightlife scene, shop in boutique outlets in contrast to the souks of Jemaa El Fna market and head for the beach before proceeding with your journey.
