Very cute place and the location couldn't really be better. I was sad not to meet Phillipe after reading so many reviews about him. If you're going to stay here you might want to bring a lock for the door. They don't have locks but if you have a suitcase lock you can secure the door. We were there in... More

Riad Magellan is a great place to stay in marrakech. Situated only minutes from the main square it offers a excellent place to rest and relax in peace and quiet. It is unbelievable how peaceful this place given how close it is to the buzzing souks and main square. The riad has a wonderful traditional Moroccan still, all the staff... More

For those of you that have never stayed in a Riad(like me), I wasn't quite sure what to expect. After jet lag to Europe, and then a 3 am early rise to catch a 6 am flight, I was exhausted upon arriving into Marrakech. The Riad is located in the most convenient area close to market shopping, the big square... More

I have just returned from a 2 week solo trip around Morocco and I spent my first 3 nights at Riad Magellan which was absolutely delightful. It was my favourite Riad in all of Morocco and it set the bar very high for all other places I stayed afterwards. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by warm and... More

We spent 4 beautiful days at the Riad Magellan. Everyone was extremely helpful and made us feel at home. The location is great, only 5 minutes’ walk to the Jemaa El Fna plaza, but still in one of the very quiet side streets. We definitely will come back!

We used Riad Magellan as our home base while travelling throughout Morocco. A total of 7 nights were spent there, and each time we returned, it felt like a homecoming! Phillipe was knowledgeable and so very helpful in planning a trip to the high Atlas, and for our many comings and goings! The staff were pleasant -especially Samir who was... More

An experienced and very helpful host in a wonderful Riad in the centre of the Medina. Philippe knows all about the city and the coast and helps arrange transport and recommends restaurants While within the Medina there is little or no vehicular or taxi transport the walk through the narrow alleys is worth it when going through the solid timber...

We enjoyed a fantastic weekend in the heart of the Marrakech Medina exploring the bright and busy market streets. Riad Magellan was a beautiful, quiet oasis just steps away. Walking through the door was entering a different world.
