My 2 sisters and I just spent a long weekend in Marrakesh, staying at Riad des Artistes. It was a great place to stay. The location is very central, close to the souk and easily accessible for taxis to the airport. Despite our best efforts we got lost every time we left the Riad but that is part of the... More

Had a fantastic stay at Riad des Artistes. The owner and the staff were all lovely and the location is amazingly peaceful but right in the middle of the old town. Dinner was beautiful when we dined in, and we had breakfast in the sun on the roof terrace with excellent pancakes, fruits, beads, jams, coffee and mint tea. The... More

Just back from a weeks stay at Riad des Artistes in the heart of The Medina. Had the most lovely time. The staff were amazing. Always there if you needed something but otherwise very quiet and unobtrusive. Had breakfast a couple of times on the terrace which was lovely and dinner once in the beautiful dining room. Would highly recommend... More

Our party of 8 people were met by the owner, Eric, and escorted to the Riad. We had asked him to arrange a meal for our evening arrival, and we enjoyed a typically Moroccan dinner on the roof terrace. The Riad itself is charming - a central courtyard with water feature, comfortable rooms, free WiFi, and ideally placed for exploring... More

Our oldest son and I recently spent five nights at Riad des Artistes. This small riad has been beautifully restored, and is conveniently located in the heart of the medina. The owners, Noemi and Eric, could not have been more friendly and helpful in making arrangements for a guide, dinner reservations, drivers and day trips to the Atlas Mountains and... More

We loved our stay at Riad des Artistes! Our family of 8 rented out the whole riad (including 2 children 2yrs and 3yrs) and we loved having the place to ourselves. Eric and Noemi were great hosts, arranging transport, excursions etc. and Abdel and Khadija, who looked after us in the riad, were fantastic. The dinners we had here were... More

This is a lovely Riad tucked away in the heart of the medina in Marrakech. The owners, Eric and Noemi, are incredibly friendly, and very service oriented. They were able to make many recommendations on things to see and when to see them, as well as some great restaurant and hamamm recommendations. The orange blossoms inside were in bloom when... More

A lovely place to stay if you're looking for authentic Marrakech inside the medina as opposed to western style hotels outside the city walls. Other reviwers have done a great job already of describing the riad so I won't repeat what they have said. Suffice to say the english speaking french owners, Eric and Noemie, are delightful and together with... More

In a small alleyway in the heart of the Medina of Marrakech, I found this wonderful property. The owner's Eric and Noemie contributed greatly to making my stay memorable. Noemie was very generous in personally driving me into the countryside to visit with a local farming family. The property is decorated with many costly pieces by local artists and craftsman.... More

We were looking for a beautiful place in the heart of Marrakech Medina and we found it at Le Riad des Artistes. It was perfectly located in the medina, a few steps from wonderful Jamaa El Fna square. Staff was warm and attentionate, always here when needed, never disturbing. The Riad itself is gorgeous with orange trees and chemineys, fresh... More
