Gueliz, Marrakesh: 5 reviews and 10 photos
Gueliz, is part of the 'ville nouvelle' - New Town of Marrakech - also known as The French Quarter, as the city expanded beyond the city walls in the 19th century, when it was under French control.
Long straight Boulevards radiate from roundabouts, where fountains provide an attractive diversion, and pavement cafes are evident.
Ave Mohammed V runs from the Koutoubia Mosque, through Gueliz, passing through the Place de la Liberte and Place du 16 Novembre.
Gueliz is the location for many mid range and luxury hotels, night clubs, cinemas, offices and shops.
My hotel was in this area, and I enjoyed wandering around, window shopping (there are some great shops selling contemporary clothing and shoes/bags etc) and sitting at one of the pavement cafes with a coffee, people watching. There's also a cinema which is probably the smartest in Marrakesh.
Address: Gueliz, Marrakesh
Directions: From Koutoubia , head up Ave Mohammed V. Explore any of the streets that lead off this main artery.
I liked Blvd Mohammed Zerktouni, it was near my hotel (Oudaya) and had cafes/ salon de thes, and some smart shops.
