“Luxury oasis with lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We have spent our Christmas holiday in this beautiful palace and for one week enjoyed every moment in this luxury and very friendly place.
The riad is located in very convenient location,only 5-10 minutes from heart of Marrakech,set in nice and peaceful area.The riad staff were extremely helpful and very friendly,they create lovely and homely atmosphere and made you feel very welcome.Rahhal, the raid's manager was always there with great smile,advice and great help!Staff's great knowledge of various languages was very welcome as we don't speak French.
We were looking forward to our breakfast treat every morning as each breakfast was different and delicious.Also the evening meal which we have the pleasure to try was delicious and Rahhal create very cosy atmosphere by lighting the fire place for us.
The design and interior decoration of the riad is absolutely amazing.The pictures on the web do it justice but you can only fully appreciate it when you see it in real.
The place is extremely clean and tidy and very very relaxing.We couldn't wish for better place for our Christmas break and would recommend this riad to all our friends and family!

I and my friend stayed at Riad de la Belle Epoque for a few days and it was worthwhile! The staff are very friendly and professional, especially Rahhal. He is very nice, friendly, good communicator and professional. The staff can give you good recommendations on what to do in Marrakech. The breakfast is perfect, the room is cozy and beautiful.

We stayed here for a week and had the most amazing time. The staff were brilliant, the room excellent and the breakfast in the sun on the roof was brilliant. The riad was only a short walk from the square which was perfect and they organised trips to the Atlas Mountains for us as well

Me and my husband stayed here for an entire week and everything in the riad De La Belle Epoque was more than we could have dreamed of. The rooms were cleaned with care every day, the bed/linens/towels were all good quality (the rooms are all beautiful), the location is in a walking distance to for example the best spas, restaurants, souks, Jenaa el Fna and Jardin Majorelle, the breakfast was so delicious and the people working in the riad were so polite, nice and helpful (=
Take the airport transportation from the riad, and bring your earplugs if you find them necessary (in the medina you will hear the call for prayer at 5am).
All in all totally recommended!

This riad is ideally located within the medina, close to the action, i.e. less than 5 mins to the souk entrance and 10 -15 minutes to the main square. It is however in a quiet area away from the madness of Marrakesh. It is relatively easy to get to by car if you chose to drive. There is a parking area close by where you can leave your car for a small monitoring fee. We arrived in Marrakesh by train and were met at the station for a small additional charge. When we arrived at the parking area somebody was there to meet and greet us and help us with our bags. The riad is located a few minutes’ walk away along a quiet alleyway. As with most riads the exterior belays the interior and this riad was no exception. The pictures on its web site do it justice. We stayed in two rooms, one at the beginning of our stay and one night at the end after a 6 day jaunt in the desert, i.e. the Anita Delgado and Coco Chanel. Both were lavishly decorated and the pictures on their web site accurately represent the rooms. The only comment was that the exterior noise level in the Coco Chanel room was more evident than the Anita Delgado room but quite acceptable. We had an evening meal upon our arrival which was very good. Breakfasts were varied and on a par with other riads we had stayed at during our 16 day rip. The riad staff were exemplary and could not have been more helpful, courteous and hospitable. They were a joy to talk to every morning and evening and assisted us in our trip planning with recommendations and advice. I would thoroughly recommend this riad should you choose to visit Marrakesh.

I came to Marrakech with 3 more friends and we stayed four nights in the Belle Epoque Ryad. The staff is great, everyone was very attentive and nice, the breakfast is amazing, even more when taken on the rooftop and the rooms very clean and comfortable.
We had a great time!

My friend and I stayed here at the end of October and we loved it. Our hosts were so helpful, meeting our taxi at the square late at night, helping to make reservations for cooking classes, restaurants and spas and giving us tips on navigating Marrakech. We needed all the help we could get! The decor and food was also great. Breakfast is a great meal that held us over for many hours of walking.
We hope to return for a visit!
