“A haven of peace and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

There are literally 100s of small Riads to choose from in Marrakech. We chose this one mainly for its location and good tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed with our choice. The Riad is a genuine traditional guest house and you feel from the moment you arrive that you are in the heart of Morocco. From outside you have no idea what magic is awaiting you once inside. The roof terrace is a haven from the hustle and bustle outside, the rooms were great and the staff were excellent and attentive. The Coco Chanel room was spacious, clean and welcoming. The only disappointment was that the evening meal wasnt as nice as we'd hoped it would be for the price.

We stayed here for two nights after a 9-day tour. We wanted to stay in a riad to complete our Moroccan experience and found that we'd made a very good choice. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, sitting us down on arrival with mint tea and acquainting us with what they offered in the way of meals, snacks and touristic services. The riad was very clean and beautifully decorated with each room dedicated to a well-known woman from the 'belle epoque' era.
Breakfasts were simple but delicious and the dinner we had was arranged for us on the roof deck with rose petals decorating the table, was quite heavenly.
They arranged a great tour guide for us, walking through the souks, visiting the Badia palace, museum and other places of interest in the medina - all not too far from the riad, and then a visit to a local spa which also was convenient and very good.
We would certainly recommend this riad with confidence to other travellers.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet from the street, but the Coco Chanel room hears conversations from the roof deck...

My family and I stayed here upon arrival in Morocco and enjoyed a return trip on our way home. The accommodations were lovely, spotless and unique in design. The staff went out of their way to provide three rooms for us, accommodate our infant granddaughter and provide transfers from the airport and the bus station. The location is within walking distance of the traditional market and many fine places to eat and enjoy the culture of the area. The warmth and kindness of everyone there made our two nights very memorable. We would return without hesitation. I highly recommend this Riad!!

Room Tip: The rooms are all unique, we experienced five different rooms during two trips and all were excellen...

I really enjoyed staying here. The venue is in local style on several floors and well appointed. They do special things like lay out the towels in animal shapes covered in roses. The breakfast was also delicious. They organised collection from the airport which worked well. As with all places in Marrakesh, make sure you know exactly where your hotel is when you go out, so you can easily find it again on the way back.

Good central location. Each room had it's own theme and was tastefully done. All the staff were so helpful nothing was too much trouble. A short walk to the sights of Marakech - fondouks, Jamaa and souks. Petit taxis available within 2 mins walk of the Riad. We had a wonderful stay and would thoroughly recommend Belle Époque to anyone going to Marakech.

Staff were very helpful, could not ask for anything more. Is a 15-20 min walk to the main square but on the other hand if you like your beer/wine you will be a bit closer to the new town and access to cheaper beverages from the supermarkets. Very clean, breakfast was excellent and you can watch the football in the dinning area. Would recommend.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the Riad de la Belle Epoque. The Staff were warm and welcoming, always ready to offer advice and assistance. Nothing was too much trouble, so we felt very relaxed and comfortable in the calm and peace of the Riad after our busy days out and about walking around the Old Town. The rooms were very clean, well presented, with daily room service. The breakfast was good with an emphasis on fresh produce made on the premises, it varied each day, which made for a good start. I would be happy to recommend the Riad and would be more than happy to return at another date.
