Residence Palazio Gueliz is one of the most beautiful buildings in Marrakech. Its UNIQUE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & striking orange/yellow colour scheme make it stand out from the normal red buildings in “La Ville Rouge”. Each time you enter, you will be impressed by the sumptuous traditional decor & the large open Atrium filled with bright sunlight. With a cosmopolitan mix of locals & foreigners, you will enjoy the relaxed & friendly vibe while living here. For your security & for any assistance, there is a 24hr concierge.

SWIMMING POOLS: There are Swimming Pools & sun loungers in many nearby hotels which you can use for a small charge of around 50-150 dirhams (£4-£12), such as: Imperial Hotel on Bvd Moulay Rashid (just 1min walk), Diwane Hotel, Ibis Hotel, Andalus Hotel.

HAMMAM / SPA: A trip to Marrakech will not be complete without a visit to one of the many local Hammam steam-baths. Just 20 seconds walk away from our flat, at the big white door further up on Rue Mohd El Beqaal, you will find the famous HAMMAM ZWINA. Here you can enjoy the unique Moroccan experience of body cleansing under hot steam with natural black soap & scrubbing glove (“le kis”), leaving your skin cleaner, fresher & softer than you ever imagined possible. You could also have a relaxing full body massage or a variety of beauty treatments, all for a much cheaper price than you would pay back home in Europe/ USA. Moroccan Hammams also offer excellent treatments for many different illnesses such as back pain or skin problems.

LOCAL CUISINE: Once you’ve tasted the many local Moroccan specialities such as Mint tea, Tajine, Couscous, Pastila, Khlia, Harsha bread & Harira soup, you will want to come back again & again to Marrakech for its fine cuisine alone. Within 5 mins walk of our flat, you will find a huge variety of restaurants, not only traditional Moroccan, but also a complete variety of foods from all around the world: French, Italian, Spanish, American, Brazilian, Mexican, Chinese, Indian etc. You can afford to eat out everyday, because typically a full meal will cost you just 30-60dirhams (£2-£5) per head. Next door to Palazio Gueliz, you will find the legendary “LA TRATTORIA” Italian restaurant, a favourite hang-out for celebrities such as Yves St-Laurent, Georgio Armani & Catherine Deneuve (see: www.LaTrattoriaMarrakech.com).

Compact apartment. 4 would be a squeeze but 3 was fine. Within easy reach of the centre of Marrakech

  • 3 of 5

Kitchen could have been better equipped with more cutlery, crockery, and cooking utensils needed. Large fridge, oven and washing machine.

Easy walk into the main square. Taxis are abundant and reasonably priced. Hotel Ibis nearby has lovely pool and restaurant which you can pay to use for 120 dirham per day.

Flat decor was 'tired' but in a good position. Mounir was very helpful and informative.

Modern comfort in Marrakech

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Findaflat for an amazing holiday apartment in Marrakech.

The booking and payment procedures on your website, as well as the excellent communication we received prior to our departure were very transparent, easy to use and very professional. This enabled me to feel very confident and comfortable booking through your company for me and my daughters.

When we arrived in Marrakech, we were not disapointed. We were met by the property manager and taken to the apartment, which was exactly as promised in the website photos. Not only were we given information regarding local facilities and attractions, the property manager, Monir, listened to what we wanted to do while we were there, and put together a plan of excursions that suited our needs and timeframes.

The apartment itself was very well equiped, and very comfortable. The location was great for us, and because we were all girls, it was nice to know that as well as being in a nice area, the place was secure and the gates were manned at all times.

The apartment was only a 30 minute walk from the medina, or a very short taxi ride (we even took horse drawn carriage once!). The upmarket shopping area was only a ten minute walk away, and the place is surrounded by a range of restaurants. Depending on your budget, or how adventourous you are feeling, you can get a great chicken tagine or a plate of fish and seafood for as little as 25 dirhams, or you can go to any one of the upmarket restaurants in the area for a delicious three course meal.

We cannot thank the property mangager, Monir, enough. He was friendly, professional and always accessible. Monir was just a phone call away at any time, and was always happy to help us with anything we needed. We came to Marrakech for 3 months, not knowing anyone. Having Monir ther, with his great English, made us feel like we had a friend there, and that we were not on our own.

I would definitely rent from Findaflat again, and would be very happy to recommend the company and the apartment to anyone. Thank you Cam and Monir from myself and my daughters for making our experience in Morocco a great one.

Apartment review

  • 4 of 5

Very good location as it's close to many restaurants. Apartment is ok everything works, but furniture needs updating, and an old carpet in the lounge is well passed it's sell by date. Could not clean it as the vacuum cleaner had no suction power so retains dust which is not good for asthma sufferers like myself. There was no PC or broadband internet as per advert. The agent there, Monir, arranged a USB modem but it was very slow at about 20kbps. So if you work on your PC as I do, you will have trouble as the speed is not suitable for anything other than checking email, but if you only need to check email it's fine. Monir is very helpful and always contactable.

If the apartment received a little updating, and ADSL, and that old carpet was ditched, I would probably stay again. The agent told me it was going to be updated soon. I would recommend putting an A/C unit in the bedroom in addition to the one in the lounge for the summer though, but for this time of year it was not necessary.

Cam and Monir are nice guys and I'm sure would try to accommodate any requests.

Flat-Out Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

I just came back from a 16 day stay in Marrakech and some treks outbound, and I am stunned by how great it all went. This apartment was all that was advertised--and more; it was truly a wonderful place to call home for a couple of weeks. It is perfectly situated, loaded with every feature a traveler could want within easy walking distance, and is so comfortable that you breathe a sigh of relief when you walk in. Camran was absolutely a pleasure to deal with--so friendly and straightforward from the booking process through the stay itself. His colleague Monir is a funny and extremely competent local contact, and both are readily available if you should need anything at all. Between the two of them, you are in absolutely safe hands, and again, the process from booking to picking up the keys is so simple that I owe Camran an immense debt of gratitude for that alone. To get such a wonderful apartment with no troubles--in light of Royal Air Maroc's temporary loss of my luggage--was the best medicine for a temporarily sticky situation. If I could give this review 6 out of 5 stars, I would. The advertisement is understatement, and the flat is just a great place for one or two people to really unwind, especially after summer temps have soared to the 45 degree mark and beyond. I recommend this flat enthusiastically; to anyone harboring the thought of renting it--just do it! You won't be the least bit sorry! It has all the modern amenities one needs, a great locale to be set in, and best of all, GOOD people in charge. I would certainly return again, and I hope that others will make use of the flat and all the good times it brings with it. Thank you, Camran, for all your kindness and attention to detail--you've made a lifelong dream come true, and you are a true gentleman.

Marrakech, also known as the "Red City", is above all a city of drama. Its spectacular setting against the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains lingers long in the minds of most travellers, & the famous Jemaa-el-Fna square provides perhaps the greatest open-air spectacle in the world. Be drawn into a world of frenzied motion, where jugglers & storytellers jostle for position with snake charmers, magicians & acrobats. Your taste buds will lead you to row upon row of open-air food stalls whose smoke fills the air with mouth-watering aromas. Next to Jemaa-el-Fna is the landmark minaret of the spectacular Koutoubia Mosque, enchanting under floodlights at night.

Marrakech's cosmopolitan population, its businesses & its tourist attractions are growing day-by-day; many people predict that it will become the new Dubai... The climate is hot & sunny all year round (except Dec/Jan maybe) with temperature ranging from 25 - 45 C, so its an ideal sunshine get-away.
