“Gorgeous place in the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We loved this place! Beautiful modern designed riad, spacious rooms and very friendly hosts. The location is perfect, close to the souks (5 min walk), the Jemaa el Fna square (15 min walk) and nice restaurants. But also on walking distance to the new part of Marrakech (Gueliz), which is also interesting to visit to see the huge contrast with the medina.
The riad has a very nice hammam and massage area, where we have had one of the best massages we've ever had. The roof top terrace is also very nice to sit after a long day of walking. The riad arranged transfers for us from and to the airport, which were very convenient. The first night after arrival we had dinner in the riad, which was delicious. Fatima is a fantastic cook. The other evenings we've had dinner in other restaurants closeby, like Cafe Arabe, which we can also recommend. Breakfasts are good, we especially liked a freshly squeezed orange juice and home made pancakes. If you like shopping for furniture, make sure to ask the hosts where they bought some of their interior and you will end up in a surprising hidden shop around the corner. We loved Marrakech and will definitely come back some time. When we do, we will stay in riad La Parenthese again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I stayed at Les Parenthese riad over the New Year Period. Patricia and her diligent team organised a spectacular New Year's Eve function, including Moroccan dishes and music. The riad itself has recently been fully renovated, and all of the rooms are superbly finished. The main square is about a 10 - 15 min walk from the riad, and they are able to provide plenty of instructions on getting to the main tourist attractions.

Room Tip: All rooms look in onto the internal courtyard The Majorelle suite was my favorite room
