There are two shops with the same name on the same street. I have not been to that which is reviewed here, but to the antique shop. It's stunning. Contained within a substantial former home, this is THE place to buy a gift of value....More

I went back to Ali's after a first visit with a guide, and was "charmed" by Kamal, the salesman, who is likeable and appears trustworthy. The store is gorgeous, and one feels like one is in the presence of genuine artifacts and antiques. I bought...More

We were taken here by a tour guide, and were told that there is 'no pressure to buy anything'. This speech was entirely false, no pressure to buy, but enticing you and making you feel like you've betrayed them if you don't buy a purchase...More

Don't get connect as most of the stuff at Ali's is significantly over priced... Ben is NOT Jewish, so take most of what you hear with many pounds of salt.....

Definitely avoid coming here if you have a problem smiling and saying "no thank you". There is a pretty simple rule when travelling... if someone you don't personally know takes you to a shop then it is pretty likely that person is going to be...More

Just returned from Morocco and feeling very annoyed to have been conned. Didn't plan to purchase anything so had not researched at all. When visiting this store with a guide I spotted a small floor rug that would be perfect for a room at home...More

On March 21st, our Moroccan tour guide took us to Ali's Art Gallery (Dar Benhayoune) in Fes-Medina. I purchased a rug for 4800 Moroccan ($600 US). The gallery added an extra 0 to the VISA charge making the rug 48000 Moroccan. It refuses to correct...More
