I recently spent three nights at the Riad La Port Rouge. My room was very nicely decorated and quite spacious. The bathroom was very pretty and roomy but the shower drain was a bit clogged. The staff were all very nice and very helpful in getting me things that I needed. As a single woman traveling alone, they made sure I felt secure and looked after while sightseeing and getting around the city although I will say that I believe their driver overcharged me quite a bit for the pickups and drop offs. $45 USD for a partial day after I agreed with the driver to shorten my plans (but he didn't tell the hotel and went to do other rides) was too much to pay when it is about $2 to $4 USD almost anywhere around that part of the Medina. Anyway, the food was excellent and I actually ate at the Riad every night. It is traditional Moroccan fare, tagines and home made appetizers, soups, and deserts and I really enjoyed it, particularly the chicken with olives and lemon tagine and the beef with dates and apples. Both were amazing. Breakfast is served in the patio area and I will say it was a bit chilly in the mornings, but they were very accommodating when I asked to eat in the salon. The coffee with hot milk, Moroccan pancakes, and fresh bread were all very nice, the orange juice fresh. I would recommend this place to travelers looking for a traditional Riad. It was also close to the Palace and very easy to find, unllike some other places in the Medina.

This hotel has very good reviews from Tripadvisor. Not surprising really because the hotel itself is great. It is what you might describe as a boutique hotel. So much attention has been been paid to detail in terms of the design and furnishing of the interior, that it is difficult to fault it. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food, should you decide to eat there, is very good. No complaints about the room, although the early morning call to prayer from the nearby mosque was a little disturbing. It doesn´t last very long, and you just need to be able to go back to sleep afterwards. The downside is it´s location. It is in the old part of the town, which has it´s pros and cons. The pros being that it is only 20 minutes walk from the main square in Marrakech. The cons being that to get there you have to walk along roads that are extremely polluted and with cars and motorbikes driving as though pedestrians don´t exist. One particular part I found myself calling death alley, was a section of road where there is barely room for traffic to pass in both directions yet alone space for pedestrians. The road is engulfed by a mixture of smoke from barbecues and vehicle emissions. You could cut the air with a knife. Incredible how people could live and work in such an environment. Perhaps because as a child I suffered from asthma, I am particularly susceptible to such air conditions, I found great difficulty in sleeping at night due to the constant generation of phlegm from my lungs, trying to overcome the pollution of the day. An alternative would be to stay in a hotel in the new part of the city and walk or take a taxi to the central square in the old part. Not sure how that would work, but it might be better. Walking around the old part of the city the word that kept coming into my mind was "squalid". Not a very nice word, but seemed appropriate for that part of Marrakech. There are quite a lot of foreign tourist, but vastly outnumbered by locals. The souks sell a mixture of things aimed at tourists and locals, but mainly on the latter. Despite being relatively narrow passageways, people of all ages ride their small motorbikes through them with almost total disregard of any pedestrians. Word of warning, walk in a straight line, and don´t suddenly change direction, or you will end up under the front wheels of some idiot on a motorbike. If you haven´t been there what I am saying may seem crazy, but if you have, you will understand. The best thing for me was the trips outside Marrakech. My wife and I were very fortunate that her cousin and his wife had, by coincidence, come to Morocco at the same time and had had hired a car. We went to see some waterfalls, which were very nice, and began to understand a little about the two ethnic groups in Morroco, arabs and berbers. The berbers tend to live in the South in the mountainous regions and the arabs in the North. Another trip was to see the geode mines East of Marrakech.. They would have been almost impossible to find if it hadn´t been for the persistence of my wife´s cousin. He persuaded a lovely local man to take us to see the mines and his entire family (and possible some others) came along. For me this was the highlight of the holiday. The people were so nice and the children in particular were helping my wife as we walked towards the mine. We came away not just with a technical understanding of how these geodes are dug out of the Earth, but with a feeling that there is something intrinsically unfair in life that we should be so privileged and these lovely people so impoverished. I guess holidays are not about understanding the meaning of life, but more about enjoying yourself. If there was one thing about the holiday I could have changed, it would have been to have given more to these people. I am really glad that I have had the opportunity to visit Morocco,seeing things both interesting and educational, it has made me better appreciate what I have.

WOW. Our stay at La Porte Rouge was nothing short of incredible. We utilized the riad services far more than we originally thought we would because of the staff. We truly felt like we were staying in the home of a family who really cared about our well-being. We requested a late breakfast one morning, and they accommodated without blinking an eye. The food prepared there was exceptional. I think we ran through the whole menu and loved it all. The rooms are exquisite and cozy. Lots of sun during the day and lots of peace at night. We also organized a number of excursions and activities through the riad. Our favorite was the private tour through the Atlas Mountains and into the Agafay Desert to catch sunset. Highly recommend paying a bit extra to have a dinner afterwards in the middle of the desert. Our guide was so sweet, and we enjoyed spending our afternoon and evening talking with him. Our entire trip was amazing and a lot of that is thanks to La Porte Rouge. We will send any friends and family their way.

Had a wonderful 4 days here. The staff were brilliant, friendly and very welcoming. They went over and above what we expected, indeed even taxing us around, making phone calls for us on our behalf and arranging excellent day tours. Would visit again!

We had a short break in Marrakech and stayed at the Porte Rouge. Our flight arrived 30 minutes early which meant our transfer, organised by the hotel, was not Theresen we arrived. This was not their fault and we had a quick transfer straight to the Road. Our room was on the second floor and was large with an en suite shower/WC. We had asked for a meal when we arrived which was warm and plentiful? The bed was comfortable and the air con kept the room cool. We did. It need to set an alarm as the “call to prayer” from the mosques woke us up. Breakfast was again plentiful. The owner took us to the corner and directed us on how to walk into town. We had read other reviews that said the local area was “sketchy” but we found the locals friendly and experienced no hassle. The walk to town follows the palace wall the nips inside and ends up in the small central square. It takes about 15 minutes. The Road has WiFi which was fast enough for most things. We had a great few days and on leaving the owner organised the transfer to the airport which arrived on time and brought us to the airport in good time. We had a great time at the Porte Rouge and would stay again. It is a bit out of town but we didn’t find that a problem and enjoyed the walk.
