Apartments in Marrakech – Boutique Budget Rentals.
Marrakech is a colourful bubble of busy life and rich heritage. Characterised by lively medinas framed with ramshackle stalls and the odd snake charmer, it’s like stepping back to a time when Berber tribes bartered for leather and gold, and great palaces rose up from the dusty floors of the city. Marrakech combines a heady mix of old and new, with the antique bazaars bursting with vibrant vigour and the new-age art galleries that are popping up around the city in an attempt to modernise the heavily imbued craft traditions. It’s a rich tapestry for the senses too, cocooned in aromatic tea and spices, tasty Moroccan cuisine, thick textures, the murmur of life, and fine examples of grand architecture. Our range of budget studios and boutique rentals span the old-world streets of the city, so whatever you’re looking for we have the perfect selection of apartments in Marrakech for you.
Things to do in Marrakesh
- Jemaa el-Fnaa – Marrakech’s most popular and iconic scene is this sprawling square and market that is tucked away in the medina. It’s surrounded by cute tea-houses, lively performers, and stalls piled high with trinkets.
- Koutoubia Mosque – This is the largest mosque in the city and it rises up out of the walls that surround it in a flurry of North African design.
- El Badi Palace – Once an old working palace, the ruins of this bastion now lie surrounded by lush greenery and the typical red dust that adorns the city.
- Majorelle Garden – Painting a pretty blue picture, these exotic gardens sprawl out across 12 acres, showcasing a range of tropical plants and cacti, and grand architecture decked out in rich shades of blue.
- Saadian Tombs – Dating back to the era of sultan Ahmad al-Mansur, these important tombs were found in 1917 and have since been restored to preserve their original state.
- Menara Gardens – Situated to the west of the city centre, these beautiful gardens are like something out of a fairytale, with tall, pointy trees, glistening lakes, quirky architecture, and the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains in the distance.
- Marrakech Railway Station – Not just your average train station, Marrakech’s transport hub is a popular tourist attraction boasting grand architectural design with a high-ceilinged atrium.
- Bahia Palace – Another of the city’s palaces, set amidst a series of beautiful, manicured gardens. Built at the end of the 1800s, it was set to become one of the greatest palaces of all time – spurred on by its name, which means ‘brilliance’.
- La Mamounia – This grand, five-star hotel is set against the Atlas Mountains and is hugely popular amongst royalty. In fact, Putin’s daughter got married there back in 2013.
- Marrakech Museum – Tucked away down the winding alleys of the old centre, this museum boasts a large collection of artefacts and objects relating the city’s history and culture.
- Agdal Gardens – This impressive plot of flat landscape surrounds the Royal Palace, offering a green contrast to the yellow-dust of the city centre.
- Bab Agnaou – Designed and built in the 12th Century, this grand old gate is one of nineteen that spans the city.
- Marrakech International Film Festival – If you happen to be in the city at the beginning of December, then make sure you catch the annual Film Festival which draws in crowds from all over the world.
