We stayed here for 3 days, the Riad is in a perfect location for visiting the Medina and all the beautiful sights outside. It is in a quiet location, find with one of the staff first time, and then it's not difficult to find again, getting lost in the Medina is a must anyway! The Riad itself is lovely and... More

We stayed here for four days in March this year and had a fabulous time. Abdel looked after us like we were family, all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The position in the market is good, easy walking to anywhere you want to go. We did a cooking class which was great, we went to the market where we... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights. This place has the wow factor immediately when you walk in. Beautiful Moroccan architecture and the experience was made special by Abdel the manager of the riad. I can honestly say one of the best travel experiences of my life and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Morocco.

We had a lovely Moroccan meal here at the Riad Princesse Du Desert one night and had the opportunity to look around before and after our meal. We were staying at its Sister Riad, Rêves D'orient, which was close by, so had no doubt that the quality of the food and the Riad itself would be good, as they are... More

Calm, quiet and extremely welcoming. In the very heart of the Medina and yet away from the busy streets. This riad is not a traditional Moroccan HOUSE, it's a traditional Moroccan HOME. If you've been on the road for a while, take a break. If you've been working too hard, let the riad family take care of you. Special thanx... More

I don't think i've ever stayed anywhere quite as magnificent as Princesse du Desert Riad. As you enter through an unsuspecting doorway the smell of jasmine hits you and the mosaics on the wall being your senses to life. With tea whenever you like and delicious homemade food it's hard to knock the hospitality. Incredibly comfortable beds in decadent rooms... More

A beatiful place in a great location. A short walk from all the main sights, but on a quiet back street so without all the noise. But the real highlight is the amazing friendly staff who made us feel like we were visiting family. Thanks for looking after us so well! We look forwarded to returning one day in the... More

This place is quite simply a little oasis. Service is incredible, nothing is too much trouble. The riad is spotless and beautifully furnished. The breakfasts are also amazing. I can't recommend this place enough.

We stayed here two nights while in Marrakech. It's location within the medina was perfect for visiting all the main city sights. Marrakech's amazing souks were less than five minutes away. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Perhaps the riad's best feature is the roof deck. It is filled with comfortable couches for relaxing and reading in the warm... More

If the Raid is available, you should definitely book here. You will be greeted by one of the most hospitable men in Marrakesh, Abdel Halak, ready to serve you traditional tea and crackers. A mountain man turned city dweller, he will give you an intro to the city and Moroccan culture in general. The next morning you will have breakfast... More
