I was very lucky to find this amazing place in the heart of Medina. Great rooms in authentic moroccan style with beautiful peaces of antique furniture. Attentive staff that makes you feel very welcome. Its also very conveniently located in 5 min walk from the main square (Jemma el Fena), and still far enough for it to be quite at... More

Run by the bubbly and charming Samira, this Riad has all the trappings to ensure you have a comfortable and restful stay, while staying true to its Moroccan heritage... More

During my trip 6 week trip, I came to Marrakesh twice. Both times, I stayed in one of Samira's riads. My second visit... More

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....
