We began and ended our trip to Morocco at the Riad Magellan in Marrakesh - a beautiful, stylish and atmospheric Riad in the middle of the Media. Great rooms, incredibly beautiful decor, lovely breakfast. And very friendly hosts. Definitely recommended!

Travelled as a group of friends - we found the place a peaceful retreat after the hubbub of frenetic activity in the souks. We are not breakfast people when at home, but what is provided is sufficient to fill a hole until you wander in to many of the available eateries scattered about town. We found all the staff to...

Beautiful location so close to the square. It is a real oasis of peace and quiet right there close to everything you want to see. And the staff are just the best. The riad is just the perfect place to enjoy Marakech from

We enjoyed our stay very much: the riad was really nice, the architecture, the rooms, decoration... The owner was extra helpful and wanted to make you feel like at home, giving recomendations for the city, etc. Only some things could be improved: the lady that works in the riad and takes care of the breakfast was not nice at all......

I stayed at Riad Magellan for four nights together with my daughter. For me it was my second stay. We really enjoyed our stay very much. The Riad has a perfect location, it is a five minutes walk from the Djemma al Fna, it is very quiet ant the staff members are very kind, helpful and offer superb service. They... More

Loved this Riad. It has a lovely laid back feel and only 2 mins walk from all the souks. We had two fantastic evening meals which was the best food we had the table and surroundings we laid out really well.Phillip and the staff were very knowledgable and helpful.Would definitely recommend this riad.

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
