Marrakesh in detail

Accessible Travel

Marrakesh has few accessible facilities, but the city 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 accessibly designed rooms.
  • 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.
