“Introduction to Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

My friend and I were fairly well travelled but had never been to Morocco. We had read lots of guide books but I still don't think I was really prepared for what Marrakech would be like. The roads were chaos and on entering the medina soon became too narrow to pass in a car. We unloaded our luggage into a handcart which was pushed down ever narrowing alleys full of donkeys, souks with their salesmen and scooters until we stopped at a dark door. This door opened into an open courtyard with a deep pool and sunloungers. No matter how hot, dusty and noisy it was outside the other side of that dark door it was always cool, airy and quiet. In fact the only noise came from the other guests.
Our room was always clean and airy and we didn't need the aircon even in June. Getting the flow and temperature on the shower could be quite complicated but the free products were lovely.
We took our breakfast and sunbathed on the roof terrace which was luxurious with sunbeds, towels, straw hats and magazines. The view was amazing with rooftops and satelite dishes, minarets and in the distance the Atlas mountains.
The staff took care to make sure we had instructions that made sure we could get to the landmarks and back without getting lost. They were always there, but not obtrusive, and served us beautiful breakfasts and a traditional evening meal. They also made excellent recommendations of places to go and the swallows at sunset on the roof of Cafe Arabe whilst drinking cocktails is pretty much unbeatable.
This is a well placed riad from which we did almst everything on our huge to do list without coming home exhausted. I would definitely stay here again either to visit Marrakech again or to use it as a base to travel further.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon visiting Morocco for the first time. The staff at Les Trois Palmiers could not have been more attentive and helpful. From pick up to departure, we felt right at home. The location of the riad is perfect; it is a great retreat from the craziness of the Medina. The rooftop terrace is a great place to relax or have a meal.

A big thank you to Patrick, Caroline, Hicham, Moustafa, Khaled and all the ladies for making our trip a memorable one!

We stayed at Les Trois Palmiers for three nights in early September as we were attending a wedding in Marrakech. The Riad is beautiful, very clean and well kept, the location is excellent, very central and everything is accessible but the best part has to be the staff who are incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful. They made our stay in Marrakech very easy and relaxing and I will definitely go back!

We stayed at Riad Les Trois Palmiers for 3 nights and it's absolutely fantastic. It's beautifully decorated, in a great location for exploring the city and the staff could not be nicer.
The breakfasts are delicious, we had ours served on the roof terrace which has beautiful views of the city. We had a free upgrade to a lovely room which was very comfortable with a huge bathroom, air conditioning etc.The Riad itself is down a few windy streets but the staff are more than happy to draw you a map which was very useful.

I would recommend the Riad arranging your transfer to and from the airport as it works out cheaper than flagging down a taxi.

Overall i could not recommend this Riad enough and would definitely stay here again if I ever return to this fantastic city.

I have been here only for one night, during a business trip in spring time.
The location is perfect, in the hearth of Marrakesh old city. This means you can get lost if you don't memoryze the street of your hotel! But this is something tipycal in Marrakesh!
When you entr just a small door, you will find inside a wonderful tipycal riad, with sevel floors, a nice court with free internet.
Rooms are very nice, it makes you think about how was a bedroom in the imperial Marrakesh! Bathrooms are the best part!
The only negative point is that the wook door and windows are not very well insulated: this is not a problem on summer, but in winter is a little cold.
The rooms are very clean, and the staff very well trained, friendly end high-class.
Definitively suggested!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this riad and would recommend it to anyone staying in Marrakech - we'll definitely stay here again if we ever come back. The decor is lovely, though simple and understated; breakfast was excellent and the staff will serve it whatever time you wish - the same goes for dinner.
The biggest plus about this riad is the staff. They really cannot do enough to help and genuinely seem to want you to feel at home here. We arranged a pick-up from the airport - I'd definitely recommend this as I don't think we would have found it on our own. Before we ventured out into the city, one of the staff, Hicham, sat us down to give us some foolproof directions to the main sights of Marrakech - this was invaluable. The riad is well located - it's only a few minutes walk to the Djemaa el Fna square and the main souks. Any time we returned to the riad, the staff were on hand, and were keen to chat about where we'd been and how we were enjoying the city. Mint tea and Moroccan pastries were also provided! The staff were so friendly and helpful, and really did make us feel at home .

The hotel was hard to find in the Marrakech labyrint, but the moment we entered the 1.50 m high door we entered an amazing palace. Everything was taken care of by Isham and Patrick. We felt like sultans! When we are back in Marrakech we will definately stay here again!
