We stayed in this Riad for 4 nights as part of our Easter holidays. The service was excellent, the staff and owner Phillippe were very friendly, welcoming and always willing to help. We stayed in the orange room (second floor) and the blue room (first floor). Both rooms were very clean and had comfortable beds, the blue room had free... More

My husband and I stayed here in March 2014 for 3 nights. On arrival we were greeted by candlelight, rose petals and mint tea! We stayed in the Green room which was lovely (first floor) comfortable bed and good shower and nicely decorated. Anywhere you go in Marrakech I would reccomend taking ear plugs as the call to prayer can... More

Right in the central medina in Marrakech, Riad Magellan is a great place to stay. Visiting Marrakech you want to be in the maze that is central Marrakech. Riad Magellan has the desired location and is a very comfortable place to make your foray into central Marrakech, as well as being a relaxed place to retire to when you want... More

We stayed with our 4 kids and with friends in the Riad Magellan and it was a superb experience. This was a great Riad with very helpful staff and owners and a very familiar touch to it. Philippe helped us with great trips to the Atlas mountains and Essaouira making this experience unique for the whole family.

Never stayed in any other riad before, so nothing to compare it to, but WOW!! After 3 weeks of backpacking, what an oasis. Makes you want to buy your own! Right in the middle of the medina, but tucked away in a really quiet side alley so totally quiet. And we paid not much more than we did for a... More

We spent three days at Riad Magellan in early January. Finding it was not particularly hard coming from Jemaa el Fna, but you'll want to have a good idea in advance unless you want to be bothered by local kids wanting to guide you (for money). Showers are very nice, rooms have AC and I guess also heating units (though... More

We loved our stay at Riad Magellan! We stayed for 4 nights over New Year's and couldn't have asked for a better location. The Riad is beautifully decorated and our room was small, but perfect for our stay. There's a great breakfast prepared for you each day and I also recommend having dinner there. It was probably our best meal... More

We stayed at Riad Magellan for 6 nights, between Christmas and New Year. We very much enjoyed our experience at this oasis of tranquillity. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door, as we were treated to a lovely mint tea followed by dinner prepared specially for us. The staff were exceptionally warm, courteous... More

It worked marvelously. If you ask the very helpful staff to arrange for a transfer to/from airport, a comfy jeep picks you up and drops you at the entry of the pedestrian precinct, then a trolley is arranged to plunge and wriggle your bags into narrow dark alleys of Medina Souk to reach the cosy riad. We slept gently cradled... More
