German Vogue featured THE GREAT GETAWAY MEDINA in their May 2012 issue. I'd already booked my flight and the hotel by the time I found the article in Vogue, but it made me look forward even more to one week vacation in Marrakech. This was the first time during a vacation, that I seriously thought about staying a week longer... More

Once you walk through the beautiful wooden entrance door of this unique boutique hotel in the center of the old part of Marrakech (called Medina) you feel immediate relaxation from the vivid and often very noisy (and exhausting) streets and souks of town. The decor of the 300 year old building (a former Zitadel) is just stunning - in the... More

It's a perfect and quiet spot to relax after a day in the old town of Marrakech. This individual Riad in perfect location offers 6-7 spacious rooms,... More

Me and my fiance stayed 5 nights in Ina's wonderful, newly refurbished riad in the Marrakesh medina. The owner - Ina's philosophy is to remember each guest by name, no matter when she might meet them again -- and it shows. Personal, attentive but never intrusive, you can count on her to create a charming atmosphere, and make everyone feel... More

This is one of the best places you will ever stay in. The Great Getaway is an exquisite riad with a very tasteful decoration. And Ina, the owner, is one of th best hosts I have ever met. A must if you plan to visit Marrakech!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
To hear the voices of Marrakech, one need only sit and wait a moment in the "Great Getaway Medina" located on the edge of the souks. A pair of peach head parrots greets the dawning day in the circular patio while breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace.
