Riad Layla Rouge is a welcoming place, Abdel makes you feel at home right away with a glass of chilled water or tea. He is very helpful and has excellent English and will arrange tours or cultural activities for you. During Ramadan, I couldn't pay by card, so take Pounds or Euros and change them when you land or take... More

I had a nice experience at this riad. Adrahim is a nice and attentive host. The riad is nice, cosy and colourful with an amazing terrace. Not a pretentious place but a very good cheap alternative. Plus very good to the main square. Breakfast is ok although microwaved food never tastes fresh and the table mats weren't super clean. The... More

A great Riad in a nice part oft Marrakech. Just a few minutes walk to the Jemaa el Fna from where you can start to explore the city. Cosy rooftop with lots of space to relax and enjoy a great view. Everything is very clean and the staff is so helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay there again!!

A friend and I stayed at riad Layla rouge in the heart of the medina for a couple of nights in May. Was a gorgeous little riad that was so colourful and bright. We shared a room and it was filled with all things Moroccan. We slept in at breakfast and missed this, but the staff whipped us up something... More

The crew are very friendly and helpful. They helped me to book a incredible desert tour. The breakfast is incredible. It's very well located in the middle of the Medina. I encourage everyone to do the cooking class.

Beautiful riad located few mins walk to the Djemma el fna. Nice roof, good breakfast, good shower (no door for shower/toilet), air-con room. The staff even prepared our breakfast earlier on our leaving day for Desert tour. Welcome staff though without good memory, but once you reminded him, he reverted to you shortly. a bit difficult to find.. but if... More

As soon as we walked into this cozy and well-decorated hostel, we were treated to Moroccan mint tea and sweets. The manager treats you like family- not just a client. He is accommodating, helpful, and loves his job. The rooms, beds, and bathrooms are extremely clean. Breakfast is delicious. The hostel has a great roof-top furnished with couches, tables, pillows,... More

I stayed here for a week at the end of April with my brother and it was brilliant. The hostel manager Abdel was great, showing us where to go and constantly helping us feel at home. You get a great free breakfast with endless tea and coffee. DO THE COOKING CLASS! It's so fun and about half of the price... More

As soon as I walked into Riad Layla Rouge I immediately knew it was the right place for me to stay in Marrekech - a home from home.The decoration is lovely, colourful, attractive and I had a very warm welcome. It's well kept, clean and tidy. Abel and Sanae, and everyone else that worked there were extremely friendly and helpful.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
1 Minute from Place D'Jeema el Fna in the centre of the souqs and possibly the first ever edible hostel riad. The free tea and cake – may stop you from trying to bite into the walls – or maybe not... Have a taste…Riad Layla Rouge breathes in the Mad Hatter’s tea party of colour that Marrakech conjures, and breathes out the nearby chaos – a gentler but still eccentric heartbeat. If Riad Layla Rouge could, it would cascade chocolate from the fountain in the courtyard, but the impact is truly mouth-watering nonetheless. Tea and cake, free all day – may stop you from biting into the walls – or maybe not…they may actually be edible. Only one minute from the main square, the 3 suites provide absolute privacy, the gorgeous mixed dorm encourages adventure sharing. All can enjoy the warm, communal atmosphere of the courtyard, Moroccan salon-dining room, and 2 flower and fruit tree draped roof terraces. All this enhanced by your own personal soundtrack with ipod speakers in each room. A small and perfectly formed family run riad in the centre of the souqs – Riad Layla Rouge breathes in the Mad Hatter’s tea party of colour and spices that Marrakech conjures, and breathes out the noise and craziness nearby – a gentler but still eccentric heartbeat. You cannot help but find your favourite colour here – by day Layla Rouge is a vase of flowers or a box of hand decorated chocolates, or an techni-flavour ice-cream stand; by night a treasure chest of glittering jewels, or a sparkling solar system. Use your imagination. Riad Layla Rouge wants you to get comfy in Marrakech; to feel safe and happy; imaginative and inspired – we combine a hostel spirit and atmosphere with that little bit of indulgence that you find in a luxury riad. Share your stories of travel and life. Laugh over tea and cake with other guests in our (almost) edible house. As the Mad Hatter said to Alice: ‘You could stay…What a mad, crazy, wonderful idea…’Whether you are travelling for the first time, or have done so for years – enjoy the rhythm of a city that transforms with the cycle of the sun. When you stay at Layla Rouge you can’t be anywhere else but the Wonderland of Marrakech. ... more   less
