Marrakech (also Marrakesh) is one of the main cities in Morocco, and is becoming increasingly popular among tourists and business travellers due to its flourishing commercial activity, gastronomy and social life. Its airport, which consists of two terminals recently remodelled to feature the most stunning contemporary design, boasts excellent connections to the downtown and the central square both by public bus (line 11) and by taxi. Thus, it is no wonder that many passengers landing in the city opt for booking rooms in a hotel near Marrakech airport. This way, they may still enjoy the quaint street markets and the Berber architecture while having a seamless travel experience.
