We thought we would try the hospitality of a riad rather than a hotel for our few days away, we were not disappointed. On arrival Mohammed the manager made us extremely welcome, he gave us a tour of the riad showed us to our beautiful spacious room on the ground floor. He then gave us a detailed orientation on Marrakech...

Beautiful Riad. Only a 2 min walk from the main Jmaa El Fna square yet is was a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle. We booked the Dana room which was compact but perfectly fine for a few nights for a couple. The staff were amazing and made our stay. They were very friendly and helpful, especially Azedine, from...

One truly has to heap praise on this riad (and staying in a riad in Morocco is generally the best way to get the spirit of the country).Situated in the medina, it has only several rooms, each of them beautifully furnished with lots of great artefacts, ranging from lovely mirrors to items in the bathroom. There is a small swimming...

The riad is excellent, the hosts are super nice and they help you in anything you may need. It is near all the important turistic places such as palais bahia, zouk etc. The breakfast is great and really big and although it is in the city center it is calm and quite. The service is great, very clean and with...

"Wow", what a great experience we had staying at Riad l'Etoile d'Orient for 5 nights. The staff are super wonderful and Mohannad is a great asset to the Riad. He gave us so much information on Marrakech, tours in the area, price to pay for taxis in Casablanca and what to do in Rabat. Thank you Mohannad for all your...

I stayed here with two friends for two nights and would definitely stay here again. The staff is extremely welcoming and you will feel as if you are the only guests there. Coming from the airport, you'll most likely be dropped off near the square, as taxis/cars are not permitted where the riad is located, but it is a short...

We were booked at the hotel for 4 days using it's own website. The owner was very courteous and responded timely to emails. Unfortunately we were unable to travel to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances on the day of departure.

This riad is in the best possible location, right around the corner from the main square in Marrakech. The staff were incredibly friendly and Mohamed helped us organise anything we needed. The hotel itself is very beautiful and has a cute little terrace where we sometimes had breakfast. Everything was really clean and we felt very relaxed here. We had...
