It is very nice just to sit there and enjoy a good mint tea or go for shopping. You will find there things you... More

If you want to be in the heart of the city but in a peaceful location this is a perfect choice. The service is outstanding and they cannot do enough for you. There is a lovely roof terrace to get some sunshine and also to take breakfast in the morning. It is like staying with good friends. If you are... More

Riad Bab 54 is great value for money. Centrally located in the middle of the souks. Warm, personal and service minded staff. Great breakfast and dinner by reservation - if you would want a relaxed night in. Rooms are stylish and clean. I will definitively go back to this oasis next time i'll visit Marrakech!

We searched long and hard and decided not to stay at the more hip side of Marrakech, near Gueliz, the newer neighborhood where modern clubs, shops and restaurants are. Here's a review of the beautiful Riad Bab 54 http://19twentythree.com/reviews/the-guide-to-marrakech-lodging-at-riad-bab-54/

The riad is a hidden gem. Its close to action yet tucked in a quiet corner. The rooms and facilities are a great mix of modern and traditional. We were offered delicious home made breakfast on its rooftop. The staff was good and also helped us with recommendations what to do and see. Great value for money (we paid 80... More

Hidden in the maze of the medina, the riad is at the heart of the action, yet quiet and peaceful. We stayed 3 nights with our children (aged 3 and 5). Lovely traditional riad with clean, spacious room. Enjoyed dinner there on our first night, which was the best chicken tagine we had in morocco. Small but nice pool, lovely... More

This hotel is excellent, very nice setting/design and the people are great. It was a bit daunting when we arrived as it was late (past - 11:50 PM) and walking down through the streets was an experience! But Mohammed whom welcomed us to the Riad made it his personal mission to make sure we were taken care off. The hospitality... More

We stayed at the Riad for two nights and had a 5 Star experience from the initial booking to the drop off back to the airport. Riad Bab 54 was a haven of tranquility, comfortable beds, great food and excellent hospitality. We would highly recommend and will return again in the near future. Thanks to M'Bark and Mohammed.

It was nice and peaceful to revert to Riad Bab 54 - our "home" in Marrakech - after a long day in the very lively centre of the city.
