This hotel was a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the souk and city. It was a little retreat unto itself. The hospitality was unlike any I have ever experienced, and when you stay here, you better get the dinner! So much delicious food for such a little price. The rooms are gorgeous, and I loved every minute...

We had 6 nights in total at Riad de l'Orientale. Latifa, Zachariah (and mimi the cat) made us feel at home. The meals were excellent, rooms spotless and feel of the place was just divine. John & Louise, South Australia

My boyfriend and I stayed here on the weekend. We contacted the property directly. We prearranged an airport transfer with the Riad. I would highly recommend this as it would have been quite difficult to find as the lanes are not well signposted. Latifa met us in the main square and walked us to the Riad. We had no problems...

This Riad is a gem, an oasis of tranquility amidst tha amazing and invigorating chaos of the nearby souks and the Jemaa-el-Fna square but yet only minutes away. I stayed there earlier this month for 5 nights with a couple of friends and we all fell in love with this Riad thanks to its charming host Latifa and her right...

We stayed in Riad L'orientale on May 26-28th for two nights. The Riad was everything we could have wished for - spotlessly clean, peaceful and charming and only a stone's throw from the central square. We received a very warm welcome from Latifa and Zaharia who looked after us throughtout our stay and showed a real Morrocan hospitality. Delicious breakfasts,...

Latifa and her small team made us most welcome even before we arrived, juggling beds at a very busy time to accomodate us, the last of the late bookers! We had a car sent to the airport to collect us, a guide from the square to the riad, and delicious mint tea & biccies upon arrival. At only a minute...

I stayed at L'Orientale end of March / start of April - for two days inbetween there was no room, so Latifa found me somewhere else for two days.

“We had first two rooms on the left as you come up the stairs one double, one with twin beds-both were great. There is a room at the top of the riad with a little private terrace above the main roof terrace which has a great lounging area. The couple staying in that room were pleased as well.”
