My wife and I stayed at the Riad Princess Du Desert for two nights in June 2014. We had a lovely time here. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The manager, Mustafa, joined us for mint tea and chat on a number of occasions. On our first evening he walked with us to the Jemaa El Fna to make... More

We just came back home from staying for almost a week in here, we enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms are very pretty, comfortable, fresh and clean. The bed offers you a good sleep after wandering around town during the day. The hotel itself has been restored completely so every detail is just perfect, from the beautiful kitchen to... More

We just stayed one night, but the rooms are so beautiful and right out of a Moroccan movie. Karima, a manager from one of the sister hotels was filling in there the night we stayed. She sat with us and had Moroccan mint tea (a lovely ritual) and visited with is about what we could do in our time. She... More

After being a little overwhelmed by my first trip to Marrakech, I thought thought this riad was a bit of heaven. The room was beautiful and clean. We were served dinner and breakfast which was very nice. The manager was easy going and tried to make our stay pleasant. I enjoyed a massage next door which was relaxing. I would... More

Two friends and I stayed two nights at Princesse du Desert and we absolutely loved it. The Riad was beautifully designed, the rooms were comfortable and the food was some of the best we had in Morocco. However, what really made Princesse du Desert stand out was the staff, led by Youssef and Samo. They treated us like old friends... More

My wife and I and a number of friends stayed in the Princess Du Desert for three nights. The booking was very straightforward and the subsequent arrangements for transfer from the airport to the hotel were all taken care of by an easy email exchange with Abdul at the Riad, and all arrangements turned out to be utterly reliably executed....

We had a fantastic holiday at the riad. All the staff were extremely warm and welcoming and we have many great memories. Thank you to Samira and all for a wonderful time and we will hopefully be back again soon!!!

Spent 3 nights at this riad and left feeling like part of the family! Youssef was a great host - we had great conversations, he provided us local recommendations, and most importantly, he treated us like friends or family visiting his home, making sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. The staff was phenomenal, especially Samo. When... More

We stayed two nights at the Princesse du Desert Riad in Marrakech. The riad has an ideal location, just a few minutes walk from the main square, but down a tiny alleyway which ensures a peaceful and quiet stay. Our room was small but very comfortable and quiet, and the riad had a great rooftop terrace which was ideal for... More
