Great value for money, excellent location, a few minuets walk from the square and the busy streets of the old town, yet a peaceful hidden retreat away from the noise and only a 15 - 20 minute walk from the new town and shopping plaza and the main places of interest. Franck and all his staff where so welcoming, polite... More

Staying at this Riad made our stay in Marrakech very special. This is one of the best small hotels that we have ever stayed in. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate two meals in the Riad which were excellent on both occasions. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. All in all a first class Riad that... More

Excellent experience. Quiet location a block away from the busy streets in old town, and close to the square. Super helpful and friendly staff. Arranged stay at a next riad, as they were fully booked for the next night. Nice, cozy, clean rooms, large TVs, beds etc. Complementary water in minibars.

Excellent choice of Riad Very close to the action in the Medina/Souks, but just off a quiet side street, so it's very peaceful when inside. Nice on the roof terrace with sun loungers where we took drinks (and in the Jacuzzi) Very quiet for sleeping, except when they're called to prayer starting at 05.30, but you'll hear that anywhere.

Frank, and his entire staff, offer a relaxing, serene, and wonderful retreat from the bustle of the Medina. Everyone was so accommodating and made every effort to ensure our vacation was a satisfying one. The location is an easy walk from the Jemaa el Fna. We dined in the Riad two evenings and found that the quality of the food... More

Nice enough hotel with a friendly and welcoming staff. Franck (manager), cannot do enough to ensure you have a great stay. If you want a hotel just off the main medina, so if you want to be near then this a good one to have (once you've found it!). Rooms are of a good size and are well maintained, and... More

We had a four night stay in August 2013 just at the end of Ramadan. Could not have had a nicer stay - from meet and greet at airport to offer to store some luggage for us at the end of our stay - and everything in between we were made comfortable and looked after. We had a suite on... More

My wife and I stayed at Riad L'Etoile D'Orient for four nights whilst on our Honeymoon in Marrakech. What can I say? Absolutely superb! The manager (Abla) very kindly upgraded us from the Atlas room to the Errakis room as it was free that week. On arrival we noticed that the staff had decorated the bed, tables and wash basin... More

Had a great two nights in Riad l'Etoile following a two day trek up and down Mt Toubkal. Still in our trekking gear, our porter weaved through the souks and alleyways of Marrakech. We came across an unpromising doorway and feared the worst. We couldn't have been more wrong. From the moment the door opened and our first beer arrived... More
