Where To Stay

Medina

For

The historic and most atmospheric part of town. Close to all the sights. Good selection of accomodation for all budgets.

Against

Noisy; light sleepers should expect an early-morning wake up with the call-to-prayer. The constant bustle, and hassle, can get wearying.

Ville Nouvelle

For

The new town with modern amenities. Excellent dining and cafe scene. Nightlife. Good for onward transport links.

Against

20- to 25-minute walk to medina and its sights. Most accomodation either bland, aimed at business travellers or poor value.

Palmeraie & Outskirts

For

Peaceful and relaxing. Good choice of characterful top-end accommodation. Most places have swimming pools.

Against

Expensive taxi rides every time you want to go into town. No restaurants, cafes or other amenities nearby.
