Some great options where to stay in Marrakech:

Staying in the Kasbah, the area south of the Medina of Marrakech

To the south of Marrakech is the neighborhood of the Kasbah. It is somewhat quieter than the center of the Medina, but still bustling and with a lot of atmosphere.

The Kasbah began as an administrative center and gave way to a mainly residential area. In this area are the Saadian tombs or the El Badi Palace.

Guéliz, a modern area to stay in Marrakech

Finally, a good alternative where to stay in Marrakech is in Guéliz. It is a very modern area with western hotels and large hotel chains. Personally, part of the experience of visiting Marrakech lies in staying in a Riad or a more authentic area, but if you prefer this type of accommodation in this area you have plenty. You can find 5-star hotels for less than 190 euros per night (in a double room) and standard hotels for 70 euros per night.
