Stayed for one week in beginning of December, Riad Lea arranged pickup at the airport which was very smooth.

I stayed in Riad Lea for 4 nights in September and I couldn't recommend it enough. Riad Lea is on top of the Medina and great for exploring the souks. The breakfast was really nice omelettes and traditional breads and jams and pure orange juice. Remember you are not in Europe and if you want a traditional experience what a... More

This was my first trip to Marrakech and I really enjoyed my stay at Dar Lea. It is situated in a quiet lane and is a 20 minute walk away from the main attractions. The hosts Christophe and Oliver are very warm and welcoming and make you feel at home instantly. They are also full of information and are always... More

We stayed in La Maison de Lea for 3 nights in early September following a 6 day Toubkal Circuit trek in High Atlas Mountains and it was a really great and welcoming place to stay. Christophe and Olivier are very good hosts, both speak very good English (definitely better than our French!) and made our stay very enjoyable. This riad... More

We stayed at Dar Lea for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The riad is very quiet and the hosts, Christophe and Olivier, are very friendly and accommodating. If you plan to visit the Jardin Marjorelle this riad is a good choice, as it's within walking distance and easy to get to. We enjoyed relaxing on the terrace and... More

You need look no further in your quest for a beautiful, friendly oasis in the heart of Marrakech's medina. Located only a few steps from the edge of the souk it is the perfect place to experience all marrekech has to offer.

We stayed in this Riad for 2 nights and Christophe, Olivier and Nazirha have been nothing but accommodating. We arranged pickup from the Airport which I would recommend as the Riad is located within the back streets of the Medina which is not easily accessible without a guide for the first time. After the first time, no guide is needed.... More

This is a lovely small hotel in Marrakech comfortably arranged and beautifully decorated so it is easy to feel at home. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is great! The only problem was on windy nights the plastic sheeting over the terrace was very loud and kept us from sleeping. Otherwise a fantastic experience and would... More

We enjoyed the hotel so much. An oasis of peace and beauty in downtown Marrakech. The interior, the rooms, the beds and the fantastic food made this stay unforgettable. The owners are French and speak very good English as well. The hotel is very close to Souks.
