Love this riad! It was stylish, comfortable and worth well more than riads asking for twice the price. It has a cool, easy vibe and invites lounging whether in its comfy hammock or on its two rooftop patios. The riad is very well situated. It was easy - well ok, easier than most - to find, and very convenient to... More

Phillipe is wonderful, the staff friendly and the riad peaceful. Bliss :) it is in the heart of the medina near the square an even nearer the souks. It's very calm and there is some one to let you in 24hours a day. Great mint tea and wireless internet if needed.

Small by comparison to some Riads I've stayed before, and absolutely gorgeous. Just around the corner from the Jmaa el Fna where crowds of people and excitement is the norm, Riad Magellan is a quiet and peaceful haven. The staff are very obliging and helpful and the riad itself is beautifully maintained. A mixture of Western art pieces and curios... More

I absolutely loved and highly recommend Riad Magellan as a place to stay in Marrakech. Philippe the host is a beautiful person, happy to help in any way, and completely fluent in English for those of us who aren't that good in French or Dharija (Moroccan Arabic). The staff are kind and attentive and the riad itself is like an... More

The Riad Magellan is quiet, clean and close to the heart of Marrakech. When the bustle of the city began to tire us, we could stop for a quick breather at the Riad before going our for more exploration. We loved Marrakech!

Stayed at Riad Magellan for four nights. The location is excellent as it is within a short walk of the main square and is close to most visitor attractions in the medina. The airport pick up arranged via the Riad was excellent, culminating in a short walk through the alleys of the medina as night was falling - very atmospheric.... More

We stayed in both green and red room. Both wonderful. The rooms are very nicely decorated. full of taste. The red room has THE MOST beautiful bath I have ever seen in a hotel. I wish I could have one at home. Anyway, the best thing is the location is great. Right in the middle of the old town. 1... More

My husband and I stayed at Riad Magellan for 4 nights and could not have been happier with our choice. The space was lovely - the decor - very tasteful, lots of stylish antiques, coupled with the quiet that came from this Riad being tucked away - made this feel like a true respite from the busy streets of Marrakech....

We stayed at Riad Magellan for six nights at the beginning of May. I had booked this riad based on the recommendation of a friend. We were absolutely delighted with all aspects of Riad Magellan. Our flight from Paris arrived three hours late and we sat down to a sumptuous, delicious dinner at 11 pm our first evening. Service was... More

Not only is this riad beautiful and comfortable but, Phillipe and his staff could not have been more hospitable and willing to help with our every need and answer every question. As with most of the riads we stayed in during our trip it is best to set up to be met upon arrival in Marrakevh and escorted to the... More
