Fascinating and calming beauty of the hotel is like a breath of fresh air in downtown. It was our first trip to Marrakech with my boyfriend. So it took a long time for us to chose the hotel. We wanted it to be small and it should be in the middle of everything. The stuff in Riad El Mans our... More

Many thanks for your lovely review! I know it was your first trip to Morocco, and you were a little apprehensive, and pleased that you enjoyed the visit to Morocco. I understand that you dod not enjoy the tour of the Palace due to the heat, but we could not really help that! The sights and sounds of Marrakech are... More

Our first visit to Marrakech with my friend we have been planning for a long time. We read reviews and recommendations of travelers and didn’t regret staying at Riad El Mansour.

This gorgeous Riad is approximately equidistant from the Majorelle Gardens and the Jemaa el Fna and Souk. The rooms are stunning and the food and facilities are all absolutely top notch. As a traditional Riad it's also a very good place to hide from the heat of the day (which in early June, we really needed to at times!). What... More

Thank you Patrick for your positive review. June is a very hot month in Marrakech and it gets even warmer in July and August! There are plenty of cooling off places throughout the Riad, even on the roof where sipping a nice cold drink and laying in the warmth that sure beats home! So good to hear that you think... More

This was our second stay at Riad El Mansour and also a longer one as our previous experience was one of our most enjoyable holidays.

This Riad is located in some of inner streets of the Medina. That said, the management have directions down to an art (2 lefts and a right to get out...). They also provide directions (based upon landmarks) to the main square - Jemaa el Fna, as well to the Majorelle Gardens and other points of interest in the City. There... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave the review after visiting us at Riad El Mansour!

This beautifully appointed riad was tucked away in the old town section of Marrakech. The morning breakfast was delicious and the soaps and oils in each suite were wonderfully fragrant and soothing. The riad is located within walking distance to the mosque and the adjacent markets. For a truly royal Moroccan experience, STAY HERE!!!!!

We loved our stay at Riad El Mansour. The accommodations and staff were truly lovely! The Riad is set back from the street- a good five minute walk down narrow winding alleyways. It was a bit intimidating at first, but by the end we enjoyed being tucked away from the busy streets. We ate at the Riad for breakfast every... More

The staff of Riad El Mansour definitely made us feel right at home. They were all so nice, friendly and non-intrusive. They knew the right moments when we needed service or when we wanted to be left to ourselves. They were also so accommodating with our schedule and requests. We will definitely come back soon!
