“Charming and glamorous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

Marrakesh is a must see in Morocco, and Riad O is definitely the place to stay. It is a charming old house in the Medina adapted into a glamorous hotel. We loved the décor – Arabian charm with a perfect touch of great modern design; looks like one of these places featured in the Wallpaper magazine. Riad O has several rooms, all individually decorated. Our room (Prune) was spacious and comfortable.
There’s a “hammam” (Turkish bath) on the top floor and the treatment using the refreshing black eucalyptus soap is a great value. The staffs were exceptional; extremely helpful in assisting us in any possible way. We felt safe and everyone was taken care of. The food was great; don’t forget to have at least one dinner there (excellent Moroccan salads + fabulous tajines.)

Riad o without no doubt was such a lovely serene place to stay while in Marrakech. My family and I stayed with young children rented for a week. As we entered we were amazed with the decor and cleanliness. The staff were so kind and hospitable. The wonderful breakfasts of crepes and french bread were served daily by Malika. She would entertain the children while we dined. She also cooked us a wonderful Morroccon feast which I will never forget. It was amazing. Her service was outstanding.
The hammam scrub was also unforgettable.

Location was in the heart of the Medina very close to a mosque. The call for prayer is quite loud but part of the whole Morroccan experience. Outside was a great market selling everything from fresh produce to toiletries and nappies. You can walk to the souks within 10 mins. Once you get through the chaos of the souks you will end up in or around the square where you will be greated by street sellers, food stalls, snake charmers and henna artists.
