“Beautiful, ornate accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

My wife and I loved our 3 night stay at La Sultana. Much care has gone into developing the collection of Riads. It was a great retreat after wandering the streets, alleys and souks of Marrakech. The staff were all very accommodating as is to be expected. We enjoyed the shaded pool area in the court area as opposed to trying to bake on the roof terrace like some pasty Brits chose. In other words there is a great variety of spaces throughout the facilities.

Our only gripe would be at the expense of breakfast. I had forgot that breakfast was not included (as is at most Riads) and when we were leaving we were given the $40 USD bill for some tea and a couple croissants. Had I remembered I would have definitely ordered more food.

Still were we to visit Marrakech again, La Sultana would be at the top of the list.

My husband decided to treat me to this fabulous Riad just a few blocks from the Medina. The location is deceiving as you enter a narrow alley with people selling spices on the street and at the end you find a front door were you are invited to check in while enjoying local sweets and mint tea in a beautiful private garden. Our room was excellently appointed and the service was superb. Although if I ever go back I would love to stay at one of the suites. We tried the restaurants and everything was good and beautifully presented. The spa is the best in Marrakech, so be sure to try it. We enjoyed the Hamman together and I highly recommend it.

Lovely place to escape from our busy lives. Renovated to a high standard with beautiful furnishings. If peace, privacy and relaxation is what you're after then this hotel ticks all the boxes. Extremely comfortable rooms, good showers, utterly charming staff who all bothered to know your name and make you feel welcome. Great roof terrace perfect for sunbathers with a stocked bar and cool restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Food is simple and easy in true Moroccan style - recommend the Pigeon Pastilla. The spa was excellent especially the massage - best I've had by far for a very long time - the masseuse knew what she was doing which is quite rare nowadays. The street is on your doorstep with the souk a stones throw away but have to say I couldn't wait to cross the threshold back in to the calm of this delightful Moroccan getaway.

From a chaotic street with no hotel in site, up an alleyway and into tranquility and peace. Service perfect, surroundings perfect. Difficult to believe that just outside is busy city life and all that goes with it. With only 26 rooms it was never going to feel busy but it really did feel empty. The roof terrace was cleverly used for sun loungers during the day and dinner tables at night. Expensive but not over the top for such a luxurious hotel. Would definitely go again.

Each room is uniquely decorated and designed, with riads in the middle. The staff is really helpful and make your stay amazing! The food, no matter in the restaurant or on the terrace, is excellent and solely Maroccan. Worth the price!

This is the second time I have stayed at La Sultana in Marrakech. I must admit that the staff ensure the stay is amazing every time. The rooms are unique and beautiful. The service is exceptional. Since the hotel is smaller and more intimate, the service is very personalized. The front desk and concierge provide excellent tips on where to go and how to go around the city. The staff at the restaurant are friendly and helpful. Saida and the entire team at La Sultana always ensure the stay is enjoyable and memorable.
