Full of colours

Bab bou Jeloud is one of the gates to the Fez Medina in the old city. When you go through it, stay a while to admire the blue mosaics, the fine designs and the patterns that decorate its imposing size, and the activity that surrounds it. Bab Bou Jeloud is always lively, whatever the time. If you can, go to a cafe balcony to see the gate from above. There are a multitude of small hotels, restaurants and shops around. It looks like a sea of ants. The men carry bundles to bring the heart of the Medina, like vegetables, leather, oats for horses and donkeys, women chatting, strolling and shopping, everyone was screaming, flailing. It's a show full of colours. The hotels are the cheapest here. They cost about 10 euros/night for a clean double room with breakfast. For the cheapest hotel, the shower won't be included, but you can go to the public toilet! Unlike Marrakesh, the prices for accommodation aren't negotiable. There's relatively little supply for lower budgets, and they know it.

One of the gates of the medina

Bab Bou Jeloud is one of the gates of the medina of Fez. Do not forget to admire the blues its size and activity. Bab Jeloud is full of animation. You can sit in the cafe terraces to admire the view, see above, and observe the human anthill, women talking, the men carrying bags of vegetables or go inside the center of the medina. And it is around Bab Bou Jeloud where we can find tiny cheap places to stay, about 10 euros per night for a double room for 2, breakfast included and clean for the most part.
