Traveling with a group of 13 people to Marrakech, this is a beautiful little Riad to be in. The location is great, being just around the corner of the bustling Jemaa El Fna square. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home. Latifa, the Riad´s manager was always very helpful, giving great tips of locations and places... More

The Riad L'Orientale is perfectly located just a short walk from Jemaa el Fna on a quiet street. It is clean, comfortable, and welcoming. We easily found our way back every day. We stayed for three nights, as a family, with friends. Our friends with their two kids had the only air conditioned room in the riad, but our room... More

This Riad is so calm and relaxing, in complete contrast to the square which is only a short walk away. Latifa and the 'Riad team' really went out of their way to make our visit to Marrakech as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We had 3 meals in the Riad, traditional Moroccan food cooked and served to perfection. As a... More

My wife and I stayed here with our 6 year old son for 4 nights in February. We had a wonderful time: not only is the Riad an oasis of calm and comfort with great Moroccan food, but the location is perfect for exploring the Souks and experiencing the atmosphere of the old city. The staff at the Riad were... More

This is the fourth visit to Marrakesh and by far the best. Rather than try one of the grander hotels outside of the city walls, my partner and I chose a central Riad and found the whole experience a complete revelation. This little gem is just 50 metres from the Jema and close to the heart of the Souks. The... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at this beautiful Riad. Perfectly positioned - a short stroll to the main square and souk and perfectly serene - although so close to the hubbub in the square, the atmosphere in the Riad, even when sitting on the roof top terrace, was quiet and calm. The hospitality too was excellent - tea (mint... More

My sister and I stayed in Riad de l'Orientale for 3 nights in November 2013 and it was a perfect experience from beginning to end. The Riad is situated in a small street off the main square. It is incredibly peaceful and quiet, such that it is easy to forget that the busy souk is just a 5-10 minute walk... More

This is a beautiful little riad with great views from the sun terrace. It is a great location, two minutes walk right into the main square or the souks. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home. The room was small (as expected in the city!) but very well decorated, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was quite... More

When going to visit Marrakesh you want to stay in the heart of it all to truly experience the vibe and the culture. Riad de l'Orientale is located just around the corner from Jemaa el-Fna, in the center of the Medina. The place is beautifully decorated, kept very clean and the staff are very helpful. There is nothing bad I... More

The place is absolutely fantastic. The staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The riad's manager, Latifa, is very aproachable and gave us lots of great tips for our trips around Marrakech. Couldn't ask for more :)
