While many travellers rely largely on their mobile phone with roaming data access to use the internet, there may be a time when you want to use an internet café. Perhaps the Wi-Fi isn’t so strong in your riad or guest house, maybe you want to print something, or perhaps you’d like to focus on tasks in a more work-like environment. Cyber cafes in Morocco are generally very cheap to use and the abundance of internet shops around Marrakech makes staying connected easy. Here are some recommendations of internet cafes in Morocco’s fascinating old imperial city of Marrakech.
The layout of the desks, in a back-to-back arrangement, affords a certain degree of privacy as you surf the net. Situated in the old medina, the doorway might look a bit scruffy, but inside you’ll find several computers in good working order. Connection speeds are fast and printing services are available. This is often a favourite spot because of the helpful and friendly members of staff.
Tucked away in a mainly residential part of the medina, Cyber Lumière offers a range of useful services. In addition to being able to access the internet and buy data top-up credit for Moroccan mobile internet services, the shop also provides faxing and photocopying services.
Open around the clock, Cyber Cafe K47 could be a great option in a last-minute situation, for example, if you’ve realised late at night that you need to print paper copies of a boarding pass for an early morning flight. There are only a handful of PCs at the rear of the store, but there are usually a couple of free machines. The shop also sells an assortment of mobile and computer accessories as well as a selection of drinks and basic snacks.
Open until 1am each day, Cyber Zakaria is a clean internet café with computers that are in good condition. Accessing the internet costs just 4 MAD per hour ($0.42 USD), a price that is fairly standard around Marrakech.
A fairly modern internet café in the medina, Cyber El Badii offers printing and faxing services. The padded chairs are a bit more comfortable than the standard metal or plastic chairs found in many other internet cafes around the city. It’s located between rue al Antaqui and rue Jamiaat Ben Youssef.
Fast connections and friendly members of staff make Achbar Net a popular internet café with locals in Marrakech. Plus, there’s a cheap and cheerful snack shop right next door if you get peckish. Other services include money transfers, faxing, and train ticket purchases.
Cyber Bab Agnaou can be found to Marrakech’s old Jewish quarter, known as the mellah. PCs sit on comfortable work stations that are well spaced between two rooms. The minimum surf time is 30 minutes, with a charge of 3 MAD ($0.32 USD).
Offering international calling as well as internet services, Cyber Café and Telephone is around a ten-minute walk from Djemaa el Fna. It is air-conditioned and there is a small gas pump outside where people can fill up their scooters too. Do note that this internet café doesn’t open until noon.
Infosounid has several PCs that can be used to access the internet. As well as being a place for people to surf the internet the store also performs computer repairs. This could be a great option if you’re having problems with your laptop, for example; use their computers to get online while they fix issues with your own equipment. It’s located a few kilometres outside of the bustling medina.
Located on Avenue Al Masjid, Cyber is a small internet café located in Gueliz. It is fairly close to Moulay Hassan Mosque. The store has a range of accessories for computers and mobile phones available to buy, including headphones and earphones, USB sticks, and memory cards.
Many cafes and restaurants offer free Wi-Fi to customers, and you can also access free Wi-Fi at the verdant Cyber Park Arsat Moulay Abdeslam, once used as a royal garden.
