we chose this as a last minute holiday and really lucked out ! . Very stylishly decorated (i liked the red room best) the host, Philippe was most helpful with local info. make sure you accept the offer of airport/hotel transfer as you would never find it in amongst the alleys and tunnels. also be sure to eat at least...

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.

This riad has nothing special, for me it would be an average riad. It is very quite and clean, and you will sleep like a baby. For the rest I'm afraid we are far from something beautiful and romantic. The breakfast is far from the usual morocan sweetnesses and diversity, no msemem, the bred (mharach) was cold and not home...

Dear guest, I am sorry if our Riad did not meet your expectations. I do not exactly understand what you disliked except for the breakfast, which makes your quote appear very tough. You did not get msemen for we change the home-made pastry served on a 3 days cycle, to avoid boredom for guests: there is a msemen served every... More

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
