Stayed there for 5 nights in early February with my husband. A fantastic boutique hotel located right off the Jemaa El Fna square in the medina area, thus close to all the sights and souks.
Heading down a small little alley to the main door we were unsure what to expect, but the door opened into an oasis as unexpected as luxurious and comfortable. Thanks to this special location though Riad Monceau is amidst the hustle and bustle of old Marrakech - and very close to all points of interest - once through the riad door it is delightfully quiet and serene. We already stayed in 5 different hotels in Marrakech during previous trips to Morocco, and this was by far our favorite in terms of price/value especially.
The food at the onsite Moroccan restaurant was great too. Whether you stay there or not, do not miss it: absolutely fantastic! We had several beautiful dinners here by the swimming pool as well as by… the fireplace as we were there in February and these were simply the best we had in Marrakech.
On our last day there, we also participated in a cookery class. It lasted about 3 hours, and we of course ate our own dish afterwards which made it definitely… exotic ! The chef was really friendly and the whole experience was great fun.
We highly recommend this gem of a hotel.
