I stayed in this Riad for three nights in July. LOCATION On first impressions I was unsure about the location as it is a 15 minute walk min to Jemaa el Fna and is down a few winding alleyways, however it is right next to a Bab (city gate) so it is possible to get a taxi if you wish.... More

I stayed at Riad dar Selen for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff are very helpful and kind and made us all feel at home. If I get the opportunity to go to Marrakech again, I definitely know where I will be staying.
