This was our second visit to this beautiful Riad with its wonderful hosts. We previously visited 3 years ago, to celebrate my 40th birthday and at the time my review said I was speechless. I still am. Since our last visit, the Riad has been extended and refurbished to an extremely high degree. I cannot imagine the time and the...

This is the closest you will get to staying with a family (without actually staying with a family)! My daughter and I were collected by taxi at the airport, met by Massimo at the "parking" and guided back "home" whilst being given landmarks to help us navigate the warren of alleyways in the medina. Giorgina greeted us with mint tea...

We stayed in three different Riads in Marrakesh, all very beautiful, but Riad le Clos des Arts is truly remarkable. Each suite is individually styled to an obscenely high standard. The owners have thought of everything...and more! The Riad offers peace and tranquillity, and a feeling of space - not easy to do in this bustling city. The breakfast should...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a narrow street of the Medina of Marrakech come and discover Riad le Clos des Arts: a charming Arab house renovated in pure Moresque style. Be seduced by this fascinating oriental atmosphere, be tempted by the authenticity of traditional Moroccan flavours, be refreshed by a plunge into our small pool on the terrace. The riad offers 3 suites, 2 superior rooms and 2 smaller double rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms facilities, independent heating/cooling system and safe. Food is central to the life of the house and our chef proposes daily typical Moroccan specialities and revisited traditional recipes. Dinner is on order. ... more   less
