“Simply Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed in this riad for 2 nights. It is quite easy to find from the main road. We were warmly greeted by Natalie (the manager), the staffs and Max the friendly house cat. We arrived at 10am which was early for check-in, however were served delicious mint tea and cookies from the staff. Natalie was really helpful, advising us how to get around the places of interest (the souks, the camel ride places, the orchid garden, etc.)

Our room on the 1st floor was spacious, very clean, comfy and even decorated with rose petals. The amenities was sufficient, hairdryer, in room safe, even bath robes provided. There is a jacuzzi on the top floor however didn't get the chance to dip in as we spent most of our time during the day out at the souks.

There is a staff who works the night shift (i forgot his name), he really takes care of our needs and is very attentive. He even prepared breakfast at 4:30am as we had an early flight to catch! Nothing is too much a trouble for them.

I would definitely stay here again if we return to Marrakech.

We really enjoyed our stay here at this lovely, homely riad. It is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Marrackech and a pleasure to come back to after a busy day in the souks. Good hearty breakfast served too! Would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely one-night stay in late May. It would have been tricky to find but the owner booked a taxi for us from the airport. The riad itself was full of character and beautifully presented. We even had rose petals on our pillows - a first for us!

We had excellent service throughout, starting the moment we entered when we received mint tea and delicious Moroccan nibbles. The staff were all too happy to advise on local attractions and gave us a map with directions so we could start exploring the city straight away. We had a leisurely breakfast on the terrace in the morning which was excellent.

Perhaps the only thing we weren't expecting was to be woken by harsh guttural Arabic summoning us to prayer at 4.55 am from a nearby Mosque. The riad can hardly be criticised for this however. Overall we had a brilliant stay!

We were unsure where to stay, a 4/5 star hotel or a riad. Researching via trip advisor we found the Porte Rouge. We were not disappointed, thank you trip advisor!
Karen arranged a transfer from the airport, a 20 min experience! Arriving around 9.30pm we were greeted by friendly staff who immediately made us welcome with hot sweet Moroccan tea and pastries. A tour of the riad and three beautiful rooms allocated to us, each with an individual moroccan style, charm and luxury.
Tucked away down a side street a little oasis amongst a cacophony to the senses. Attentive staff Adil, Mufasa, Siead and the team (including Max the cat) worked tirelessly, nothing was too much trouble. Freshly made breakfast on the roof terrace to evening cocktails, restaurant bookings and taxis arranged.
A delightful place to stay where you are a valued guest. I highly recommend a visit.

Room Tip: We were a party of six ladies and the three rooms were equally excellent.

If you're trying to decide between a Riad or a hotel, opt for the former. If you're thinking 'new town or medina', why? Give yourself the authentic Marrakech experience to get the best out of this incredible city. In return, you'll be treated with the upmost hospitality - certainly at Riad La Porte Rouge. From the moment we arrived it felt like we were moving in with friends and family. Mint tea and top tips were served in equal measure, by attentive staff keen to please. Sa‘id and Mustafa are wonderful hosts and made an already enjoyable stay unforgettable. The Riad itself is impeccably decorated, spotlessly clean, and tucked away without being too remote; a safe 15min walk takes you to the main square via your local pit stop Kosybar, sought out by others from further afield. Follow Karen's insights from the Riad's welcome brief, the footsteps of others flocking to Djemaa El-Fna, and your instincts in the souqs, and you can't go far wrong. Stay here and you'll be off to the right start - the only regret we had was not staying for (much) longer.

My boyfriend and I had a delightful 4 night stay at this riad. The staff are very friendly and super-helpful, nothing is too big or small for them and they went out their way to make us feel at home. Special thanks to Karen, Sayid and Mustafa who made our stay both comfortable and welcoming. Tucked away from the noisy and hectic streets of Marrakesh this is the perfect location to relax, unwind and take solace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The food at the riad was beautiful, authentic morrocan cuisine and at a reasonable price. On arrival we were greeted with mint tea and morracan pastries, a lovely touch to re-fresh you after a long journey. I could go on about how lovely our stay was, but suffice to say we would go back and had such a wonderful time.

Room Tip: There are only 5 or 6 rooms at this riad - we have the smallest, and this was sufficient enough as y...
