A lovely riad in the heart of the Kasbah. The location was great; the Medina was walkable, approx 10 - 15 minutes, depending on how efficient you are in crossing the mad roads ! The Kasbah area was less 'touristy' and manic than the Medina so to come back to the riad after sightseeing was very restful. The riad itself...

We've just returned from Marrakech where we stayed at the Riad Shemsi, its staff made us so welcome with their hospitality. They were, without exception, friendly and very helpful and made a hugh difference to our stay. We were very sad to be leaving and only wish we could have stayed longer. The Riad itself is 'beautiful' once through the...

There is a roof terrace partly covered with a tent like shading overlooking the central courtyard. Our room, the tuquoise room on the first floor, was beautifully maintained and decorated and included a morrocan style ensuite with a spacious...

Excellently refurbished Riad, in a good location. The bedrooms/suites have been decorated to high individual standard, and the communal areas are very airy. Altogether a very agreeable place to spend a few days. The staff and the owners were friendly and polite, providing a raft of useful information, and good recommendations. The breakfasts were hearty and the coffee strong. excellent...

We stayed at the Riad Shemsi in Marrakech in great comfort and style. The decor designed by the husband and wife team, both of whom have a wonderful eye for colour and style, is stunning and very romantic. Each room is designed in a different coloured theme reflecting the very essence and flavour of Morocco. We were looked after beautifully...

My partner and I stayed for a long weekend at the Riad Shemsi, a former pasha's palace, in Marrakech. It made our trip very special - we were in the luxurious Chocolat Suite, at the top of the riad, which was decorated in sumptuous Moroccan fabrics and colours and fittings - tasteful and elegant. A lot of thought and money...
