Travellers with Disabilities
Marrakesh has few facilities for the disabled, but is not necessarily out of bounds for travellers with a physical disability and a sense of adventure. Some factors to be aware of:
- Narrow medina streets and rutted pavements can make mobility challenging.
- Only a handful of top-end hotels have rooms designed for the disabled.
- Booking ground-floor rooms is essential as few hotels have lifts.
- Vision- or hearing-impaired travellers are poorly catered for. Hearing loops, Braille signs and talking pedestrian crossings are nonexistent.
