Before I headed to Marrakech I did my usual research. I researched on what to see, where to eat, what not to miss and of course where to stay. I pulled up my GoogleEarth map to get an overview of the medina, the old town of Marrakech. Unfortunately, the map didn’t prove very helpful and I would later learn why exactly it’s just a grey and whitish spot in the middle of Marrakech.
My very first time at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof was more than decade ago years ago when I attended a party in the hotel’s impressive ballroom. When I left the glamorous event that night I remember stepping out into a mild summer night with clear, star filled skies.
