The Riad is located right in the middle of the Medina, 3 minutes away from Jma el Fna square. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and counts on everything you need for your stay in Marrakech. Of course there are other more luxury riads in the medina, but if you don not want to spend a fortune, this one has... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here.  The staff was so friendly and cheerful;  Franck was exceptionally helpful.   He arranged our day tour for us and gave us ideas on some of the good restaurants.  The riad is about 5 minutes walking from jemma al fna.  Franck arranged a taxi for us from the airport and had a guy with cart...

To chill in a luxury hotel outside the city walls and get transport in when required, or go local and select a riad from the hundreds available? We opted for the latter and chose the Riad l'Etoile D'Orient which was a perfect base for a 3-day visit to the colourful turbulence that is Marrakech. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with a...

A most memorable and pleasant stay in the adorable Riad l’Etoile d’Orient, thanks not only to Mr. Franck but also to his wonderful staff! Highly recommendable! The breakfast, sometimes served on the roof, was excellent.

The best part of staying at this riad was the advice and service we got from the hotel staff. Frank took the time to give us an introduction on how to negotiate prices upfront with locals, gave us great advice on nearby restaurants, reserved a camel ride for us, and arranged dry cleaning for us. The hotel is a few... More

Great location if you want to be very close to main square and easy to find off a very busy street early evening which is a bit seedy and crowded with locals of all sorts. Recommend taking your first dinner here on the first night on the lovely roof restaurant. It was one of the best we had. We were... More

I have never left a review on trip advisor (one of those things I never find the time for) but after staying at this hotel in November 2014 for 1 week and enjoying our stay so much, I had to follow up and praise this hotel any way I could. First I want to say this is located in the... More

Exceptionally friendly, warm and helpful staff. Excellent advice on aspects of tipping, taxi prices etc. Although it is predominantly French speaking, the staff did speak good but broken English, just need to speak a little slower :). Offered superb complimentary dinner on first night. Although within the Medina, it is far by the easiest to find, being only 2 minutes... More

A modern Riad in the heart of the Medina. A few minutes walk and you're in the middle of the Souks but just off the beaten track enough for well needed piece and quiet. Reception staff spoke very good English and could not of done more to help us with transfers, directions & recommendations for places to visit. Had an... More
