“A welcome oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

I am usually used to staying in large hotels so this was a break from the norm. It is a tradditional Maroccan residence 10 mins walk from the main square. We picked up a taxi from the airport - a mistake, we were overcharged and the hotel owners would have arranged a cheaper (and more comfortable!) pick up which we used to go back to the airport. The accommodation was clean, cool and quiet - which was amazing considering the hustle and bustle outside! It was very tradditional which is great if you are looking for a more realistic Marrakesh. But beware. as a result it is tucked away down a side street and wouldn't be too easy to find if you had just stepped off a plane - another reason for using a transfer!

Stayed November 2009, traveled as a couple

Overall, we had a wonderful experience here. In fact, it was our second time visiting this riad.

* They arranged a great transportation for us from the airport to the riad.
* We were served mint tea and given a tour of the grounds.
* The riad is conveniently located in the medina, near the main attractions
* Breakfast on the rooftop was great.
* Mhmd, the manager was very hands on with our needs and was great with our kids.
* He personally booked us bus tickets to Essaouira.
* The riad was a beautiful arrangement and the rooms were big with cool showers.

The only downside is that the baby cot that they offered was a decorative wood cot with a mattress. That would be fine, except that the cot's walls were too short and our toddler climbed out 2-3 times.

I'd recommend Riad l'Etoile du Sud for a good mid-range riad option in Marrakech, just bring your own infant cot!
