We spent 2 nights in this delightful Riad. It is situated close to the main square and the Koutoubia Mosque and is easily accessible (without any need for a porter/barrow ) from a nearby main road, although it is situated in a typically narrow 'derb'.
The Riad comprises 4 rooms situated around a pretty but small courtyard, one on the ground floor, two on the first floor and the fourth at the top of the building which includes a roof terrace.
The roof terrace also has a tented dining area where we elected to have our main meals. This was an excellent decision as the food, ambience and service were all memorably first class.
The staff were obviously hand picked and well trained and could not be faulted. We also met the owners who run 3 other Riads in Marrakech which are marketed under the title of PureRiads. They have a strong hotel background and could not have been more welcoming.
All in all it was a great stay and we will return.

- Perfectly located in the Medina, Riad Bel Haj is situated in the Ksour district, only 5 min walk from Jemaa el Fna square, the Koutoubia mosque and the Souks. Ksour is one of the most required districts of Marrakech for its peace, in spite of the closeness of Jemaa El Fna square. Riad Bel Haj offers an oasis of calm and serenity, rhythmic by the remote calls to the prayer of Koutoubia and birds song. The riad, recently renovated with taste and respect of the Moroccan traditions, offers nevertheless to the visitors a modern and comfortable place to remain in Marrakech. Magnificiently decorated and brightened up with artistic achievements and authentic Moroccan materials, the riad also has modern equipment such as reversible air conditioning, free WiFi access The riad is located in the middle of a quiet and well lightened derb and very easy to find, in Bab Ksour, very closed from restaurants and stores of Gueliz, Marrakech modern district.
