The riad is beautiful and calm, which complements the heat and bustle of Marrakech perfectly. The staff took great care of us, welcoming us as soon as we arrived and making sure we would not get lost. Special thanks must be made to Badr, the perfect host, who very patiently listened to our bad Arabic and to our great delight... More

I have been staying at the Riad Porte Royale since I first visited nearly eight years ago. It's always a superb experience! It really is an oasis amongst the busy hustle of life in the Medina. It's well out of the tourist areas, so once you step outside it's doors you're right in the centre of daily life as lived... More

We stayed here with a group of 8 friends for a week in September. The riad was beautiful and extremely comfortable. The rooms are well appointed and the decor is just gorgeous! Organizing a trip for 10 wasn't easy and I had loads of communication back and forth, I was answered very promptly and help we received prior to getting... More

This house was incredible. I traveled with my husband and eight other friends, and it could not have been more perfect. We enjoyed the views and even did yoga on the roof terrace! It was hard to leave the Riad because it was so comfortable and best of all, was the manager Badr. He took such great care of us... More

Beautiful and comfortable House, Nicely designed and beautifully decorated, keeping the spirit of the original building. Rooms are relatively small but very comfortable, and once again you can feel the atmosphere of Morocco. The staff is fantastic, thank you for the hospitality Badr - always available to give us tips and help. This time we stayed for 4 nights, but... More

We spent a week here in December 2013 including Christmas Day, as a family group of eight which ranged from my elderly (but intrepid) parents to my very lively 11 year old son. The Riad is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, minimalist but chic and stylish. The staff were extremely kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble... More

Had 3 nights in November, perfect weather, quiet Riad, 10 minutes walk to the souks, lovely staff, excellent cooking of both breakfasts and dinners. Nothing was too much. Would go back without hesitation!

We stepped from the narrow alleyway down into the old doorway set in a vast wall to arrive at the Riad , Porte Royale which is hidden oasis of peace. The rooms are plain and simple with very comfortable beds and lovely antique Moroccan doors and windows and tribal rugs . Mohamed and his wife Hagiba welcomed us and continued... More
