Riad, L'Emir is a beautiful and cozy riad very close to Jama e fna. We enjoyed the hospitality and first class service provided by Brice and his trusted assistant Eshan. The room was spacious to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The whole riad was tastefully decorated in authentic Morocco style providing a quiet relief from the noise of the... More

Tricky to find but a pleasant stay. As mentioned in other reviews here, the rooftop, breakfast and hospitality are good. The only caveat I would have on staying here is if you don’t speak French and this is your first time in Marrakech/Morocco, you might find that a hotel or riad where the staff can help you in English would...

Navigate your way through the bustling back streets of Marrakesh and you will find an Oasis that is the Riad L'emir, Brice and his french co-host are friendly welcoming and helpful. The rooms are tasteful and the riad is cosy and clean but the icing on the cake is the beautiful rooftop garden where continental breakfasts were served daily, the... More

Just 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle that is Jemma el Fna this very secluded Riad was the perfect place to chill out relax after the culture shock of Marrakech, Brice the proprietor welcomed us and introduced us to Isham his erstwhile assistant, who, as if like a Genie appeared at the moment we wanted something and seemed to...

Great position, close to Place Jemma El Fna and many others places to visit; good wi-fi connection, the staff is very kind, helpful, discreet and good in anticipating every needs we had. There's a pool but it's quite small, smaller than it looks in pictures

This is a nice, clean and pretty good priced Riad that you can find in Marrakesh. It is located very close to the Jemaa el Fna and the Koutoubia Mosque. The only thing is it is little bit hidden in the Medina like all the riads. The stuff is very kind. The Moroccan man who takes care of everything in... More

I rarely write reviews, although after this trip I realized that I rely on my fellow traveler's to make decisions about where I will stay and what I will do, so thank you. I did a lot of research to find the perfect Riad for my five nights in Marrakech, especially since I was traveling alone. Riad L'Emir was a... More

The riad was beyond lovely -- clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and gorgeous rooftop terrace. And the hosts are the most charming ones that I have come across in my many travels. Very welcoming, more helpful than any concierge in a 5 star hotel. Delicious breakfast on the terrace! The location is key -- only 5 minutes to main square but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A luxurious guesthouse with a contemporary style, completely refurbished in 2005 and expertly blending simplicity and technology. The Riad L'Emir is a residence with great character situated in Marrakesh's medina, a refuge of peace and tranquillity. Here, the comfort of a modern hotel establishment and the refinement of traditional local architecture are united in great harmony. When night falls, the exoticness that envelops the location becomes more intense thanks to the magical light arrangements installed around the indoor swimming pool. In this extremely relaxing ambience daydreams and reverie come into their own. The silhouette of the Kutubia reflects on to the terrace to complete the beautiful setting of this peaceful place where relaxation can not be avoided. ... more   less
