“Amazing Describes It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We loved our stay at this wonderful Riad. From the moment you arrive you feel relaxed and calm. The service was fantastic and the rooms were cozy and comfortable. The owner was able to help us arrange all our tour and transport needs making things even easier. The food was amazing (reserve the royal cuscous). You are about a 15 minute walk to the main square, but it is an experience to do it. Marrakech is wild, busy and loud, but you would never know staying here.

This riad was the most beautiful place on earth. It was a haven we could retreat to when the busy streets of Marrakesh became too much. The staff were universally welcoming, very helpful and friendly. Some of the best food we had while in Marrakesh was dinner at the riad and hands down the best mint tea. We liked it so much we plan on coming back next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in Argana on the first floor which was beautifully decorated and spacious.

This is the first time to visit Morocco, and this riad made my trip great. I appreciate the all service they made for us. Beautiful rooms and terrace, delicious dishes, super friendly staffs! If I can come back to Marrakesh, I will choose this riad.

It took us some time to find a hotel, in the south-east of Medina, surrounding area was not nice and felt a bit weird, but once you step in, you get into the different world. Beautiful decor and well-thought design, nice breakfast on a terrace, jacuzzi is there for the guests. Service is very nice, pool makes a huge difference after sweating out in Medina trying to find your way and before heading to the airport. Highly recommended!

I can't imagine how they could improve this Riad. Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, you are welcomed upon arrival with tea and sweets. Rose petals on the bed and the towels. Great kitchen and meals..Karen and her staff look after you and will solve any problem. A beautiful time.

The Riad itself is a perfect combination of beauty, service & value. The atmosphere is friendly and easy so we felt like we're guests in our friend's home. Excellent room, pleasant fragrance, peace and quietness around. Cool & quiet paradise in the heart of hot and noisy Marrakech. Very tasty food made by careful staff, with an every day little surprise for a breakfast. We got anything we need there and even more - kindness and warmth which can not be bought :)

We enjoyed our stay at La Porte Rouge at the start of our holiday so much we cut short our visit to the coast to return there for our final night in Morocco. Both rooms we had were beautiful and each one quite different. For our second visit we were in a room right up on the terrace and it was lovely to be able to walk out there in the morning and sit in the early morning sun before breakfast. The service was again outstanding - nothing is too much trouble for Adil and the team. There was some confusion over our return flight time and Adil sent someone over to the airport to check the flights for us. He also drove us up to the square and later summoned a taxi at very short notice to take us to the airport. The atmosphere is lovely - friendly but also private - and the attention to detail is excellent: monogrammed towels on the rooftop sunloungers; sunhats to protect you whilst you breakfast on the terrace; rose petals on your bed; and dressing gowns in the bathroom. The Riad is a little way out of the centre of Marrakech - but only 5 mins by taxi or a 15 min walk - and only a short distance from the Bahia Palace and the Saadian Tombs. Definitely the place to stay if you want to be within the Medina, in a riad with character, comfort and excellent service at a reasonable price.
