My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at this beautiful Riad at the start of November 2011. From the moment we stepped through the door we were astounded by the beautiful and luxurious surrounding. We were immediately offered some refreshing mint tea by Franck and then shown to our room and given a quick tour of the residence. Our room... More

My wife had arranged everything for our trip to Marrakech, all i knew was she told me that the hotel price was very cheap and not to expect anything luxurious. We arrived by bus from the airport at Jemaa El Fna area and it took us 10 minutes walking to the hotel (5 min from bus stop to the main... More

The riad was beautiful and pretty close to the Jemaa al Fna, we just simply took the bus number 19 from the airport and walked about 5-10 minutes here. It would be easier if you have the google maps, since this area has so many small alleys which could confuse you, and too many local guys offer you to take... More

This Riad is as beautiful as it looks! Just 2 mins from the Djeemaa El Fna so couldn't be in a better location. After all the hustle and bustle of Marrakech it is a pleasure to hide away and recuperate here (with some complimentary Moroccan mint tea) before heading back to the Souks. Staff are friendly and helpful yet maintain... More

The camera hasn’t lied! OK, a wide angle lens has clearly been used for the website pictures however the effect allows you to see how amazing this riad looks, rather than trying to give a false impression of size. The Etoile d Orient is like an oasis located two minutes from Djemaa El-Fna. We met by Franck, on arrival and... More

Staying at the Riad L'Etoile afforded us an excellent opportunity to sample the delights of Moroocco. Situated in the heart of the Medina, it is ideally located to explore the street markets and to enjoy the Moroccan experience. The Riad was beautifully furnished, comfortable and home from home with friendly staff and an amiable patron. The roof top jaccuzzi in... More

Having spent 34 years in the Royal Navy, I consider myself to be a seasoned traveller who has stayed in many hotels around the world – my advice if visiting Marrakech – do not stay in a hotel, stay in this Riad. My wife and I had pre-arranged transfers to and from the airport; we were met by Mohammed who... More

Riad L'Etoile d'Orient is simply beautifuly designed. a delicate blend of modern and traditional while still maintaining well established class. It was easy to find the riad about 5mins stroll from the main square.( could take longer in the evenings when the streets are full ) Didier welcomed us like old friends and even upgraded us to a bigger room...

Me and my husband booked our flights to Marrakech in April 2011 and spend some months deciding which hotel to stay at. There are so many to choose from, so many Riads! The l'Etoile d'Orient is a perfectly placed and wonderfully managed little Riad a 2 minute walk from the main square in the Medina. The service was fantastic. The... More
