After walking into Medina like lost lambs, unable to speak a word of Arabic or French, we were thinking how are we going to find this place?! Luckily, I spotted a gold sign that led the way. Walking through a few of the alley-ways, we found it, and walked into a peaceful, orange blossum smelling hub which was Riad Lotus... More

My mother wanted to go away for Christmas and New Year and take us with her. She definitely didn't want a typical large hotel. A recipe for disaster, you may think. And you would be right but for Maggie (the manager) and her staff. My mother and husband are getting on a bit, so after a long flight arriving in... More

Although the hotel was difficult to find (as everything in the Medina) a servant of the Hotel came to find us when we got lost. This is a fantastic decorated 5 rooms hotel. It is clean, peaceful and has an amazing patio where you can enjoy a fantastic breakfast every morning. I recommend to try the Hammam, unforgettable experience. The... More

Don't let the walk through the alley to the Riad from the street put you off. It is a clean, peaceful, well run haven. We loved having breakfast in the courtyard each morning. Our room, the Kennedy Suite, was clean, tasteful, and comfortable. The staff at the riad were very welcoming and helpful. We booked a day tour to Mt.... More

Although the hotel was difficult to find even by the local taxi driver it was well worth the wait. I phoned the hotel, spoke to Rashid to say that the taxi driver could not find the hotel, the hotel actually sent one of the staff to find us!! Hotel staff were very friendly, they were always on hand to provide... More

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful riad. I had been a little concerned by an earlier review but there were no problems. We had the smallest room, Marilyn, but it was a good size for two. The entrance off the 'main' road is a bit dark and unkempt but no worse than any old city I have stayed... More

We were four people (two couples) which booked two rooms for this hotel (riad) for two nights. The experience started just at the arrival. Stating that we had booked two rooms the receptionist said we had no booking for this Riad. After almost one hour waiting finally they manage to contact the manager and apparently there was overbooking for the... More

I did not stay overnight at this riad turned boutique hotel but visited their hammam. The massage and Turkish bath was a wonderful experience. While being scrubbed, washed, rinsed, lotioned, etc I imagined I was a queen being waited on hand-and-foot. What beautiful surroundings! The cost is quite high, but sometimes one has to splurge. The Lotus sent a driver... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In Marrakech just a stone's throw from Jemaa-El-Fna square and hidden away in one of the most ancient alleyways of the Old City. Whisper its name: Amber. The first of the Lotus Riads. A luxury guesthouse, but also an elegantly decorated palace concealed beneath the hustle and bustle of the city. An original Riad whose welcoming atmosphere and subtle comfort fits in perfectly with our Lotus chain philosophy, always a guarantee of quality and outstanding service. ... more   less
