I had a very pleasant experience. Nice people and nice food. The crew is very helpful with tips for a great Martakesh experience. You'll also drink free mint tea all day long! The terasse is quite beautiful. Even though quite hard to find in the old medina streets.

This Riad proved to be the perfect place from which to visit Marrakech as its located in a great part of the Medina. In terms of comfort, we found our stay irreproachable. The Riad very much gives a "home" atmosphere, as opposed to the impersonal feel of a big hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated, with a comfortable bed and...

Riad Princesse du Desert is situated in the Medina of Marrakesh. We can reach the Square in 10 minutes by walking. The Riad offers a cozy and warm family like environment. Tajini, the manager of the riad, is very helpful and give assistance whenever we needed. I shall certainly recommend this riad to people wishing to find lodging in Marrakesh.

Lovely atmosphere, delicious meals, staff always friendly and helpful - they really make you feel at home! Relaxing after walking for hours around Marrakech, this Riad offers you a full immersion in Moroccon hospitality!

I could not recommend Riad Princesse du Desert and in general Samira Riads (a small group of riads) highly enough. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and did everything they could to help us out; way beyond what I would expect from a good hotel. We'd been staying at another Samira Riad (Riad Reves...

We were made very welcome by Simmon and the rest of the team. Riad was beautiful. I was sick while we were in Marrakesh and the staff were brilliant. They looked after me and fed my husband from their own table (as I was recovering in our room). Wonderful people.

Had a fantastic stay here in December. Great service and hospitality. The rooms were gorgeous. Abdel made fantastic recommendations as to where to eat and made sure we never got lost as the hotel was in a slightly difficult place to find. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed here to celebrate my 61st birthday and it was perfect. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The accomodation was clean and beautiful. We ate dinner there just once as there is so much to choose from out in the Medina but it was well worth it and highly recommended. I am already looking forward to going back next...

This riad is tucked away down a series of winding turns in the medina, in very easy walking distance to the fantastic souks of Marrakech. The rooms are elegantly decorated, and the staff is very friendly. Dinner at the riad was actually the best I had in Marrakech: a tagine of lamb, prunes, and spices on the rooftop. While the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Princesse du Desert Nothing is too good for her. Equidistant from the " Jemaa El Fna " and " Door Dar El Bacha " , the location of Riad Princesse du Desert is exceptional especially since it offers beautiful calm and tranquility. Nestled in the Medina, the small alley that leads to the riad is a wonder with warm colors that contrast with the blue sky and vegetation that is rare in the Medina which can give the feeling of a Provence in Marrakech. Additionally beautiful decoration, attention to detail , arches , columns and moucharabiehs , lace white stucco ceilings, zellij ( tiled ) walls and featuring an alchemy of colors and smells with refined bath products (jasmine and amber ) make this a wonderful place to be . Additionally, not forgetting comfort alongside the beauty, each of the 6 rooms feature air conditioning, soft bedding and luxury linens. Breakfast is included in the price and we offer complimentary Moroccan mint tea and coffee with homemade cookies at all times. ... more   less

“Request for an upper level room as the room at the ground floor can be a little loud due to guests arrivals/departures and when dining.”
