We were last month, what can I say? very friendly staff, with an exquisite treatment and incredible manual maps (the best you can get in stores), rooms with truly exquisite decorations and food 100% of marrakech. We traveled with a baby and they helped us in all the amenities (crib, meals and nocturnal silence) ... a good area where people... More

We were recommended to stay here as the sister Riad was fully booked the week we wanted to stay. We weren't disappointed and were well looked after. As it turned out we were the only guests staying and were well looked after. We opted to take the arranged transfer from the airport and were well looked after by the driver... More

Riad Palau is an excellent choice in Marrakech. It is in a really great location, in a corner of the Northern Medina that remains very Marrakchi and off the tourist path, yet offers a short walk to many of the top attractions. The building itself is beautiful, the decor and comforts top-notch, and the breakfasts delicious. Most importantly, the Riad... More

My husband and I stayed at the Riad Palau for 4 nights with three friends. It is a wonderful, peaceful, lovingly resorted haven. The hostesses were very warm and friendly and truly made the whole experience fantastic for us. They enthusiastically took the time after breakfast to suggest sightseeing activities for the day - all of which were thoroughly enjoyable.... More

We absolutely loved staying at Riad Palau - it was a beautiful oasis. The rooms were clean, comfortable and lovely. The breakfast was outstanding. And the hostesses were incredibly kind, gracious and very helpful. We'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Riad Palau is a truly delightful place to stay. In a quieter area of Marrakech, tucked up some winding backstreets (but within relatively easy reach of the nearest taxi drop-off point) it is definitely worth getting picked up at the airport or station when you arrive, as you will never find it on your own. The riad is absolutely beautiful,... More

We had an amazing experience at the Riad Palau. The riad arranged for a car transfer from the train station (definitely worth it!), and we met one of the staff in the medina. He led us down a narrow passageway flanked by walls of red sandstone, donkey carts clopping by and people on motorbikes whizzing within inches of us. As... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Palau is the result of Sonia and Josep Maria's dream, a couple from northern Spain who always had the illusion of owning a Riad and manage it as a Guest House in the medina of Marrakech. Riad Palau is an ancient small palace placed in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods of Marrakesh. Two years of restoration held by the best artisans in the medina and the experience and help of our friends Manel and David guarantee that your stay in Riad Palau and in the "Red City" won't be easy to forget. ... more   less
