Visited this median which has the usual crowded market ambience. Was a bit concerned walking into the tiny by-lanes as the hotel staff cautioned me to hold on to my belongings when visiting here, which put me on alert. In the open areas large number...More

For those who have been to an old city (medina) before, stay away from this disgusting, stinky place. Narrow alleys crowded with street vendors selling everything from used shoes to candies. Garbage is spread all around, producing a smell that makes you want to puke....More

I've been to plenty of outdoor markets and medinas, and this one didn't seem to be kept up. It felt grimy and I didn't stay long. It wasn't very crowded, which may have been because of Ramadan.

It was good experience to visit an old part of city with traditional shops, you should haggle when you want to buy somthing and its great.

Average goods , expensive prices and nothing exclusive to buy . Better to shop in fes or Marrakch if looking for buying directly from artisans .

Old Median is a fun place to visit. However be prepared for crowded situations. Advise do not bring a large hand bag with you keep your personal items very close to you.

We actually visited twice as there was not much else in Casablanca that we found interesting. Narrow aisles and lots of people. We enjoyed the food areas much more than the other items for sale. We managed to buy this great Rolex watch for my...More

Where is the best place to buy traditional Berber sandals in Casablanca? Preferably I'd like a place where they ship and maybe take Amex.

Shop around and bargain to get the best price. I would only use cash in the Medina. If the shop doesn't ship and if you want to be sure the slippers are mailed, you can always mail them yourself. Your hotel can help you... More
