My husband and I so enjoyed our 4 nights stay in Riad du Ciel" everything; from the welcome with mint tea and biscuits to the kindness of Karima and Rachid was designed to make our visit wonderful. Such a lovely room too, with our own personal terrace and breakfast there as the sun rose over Marrakech.

We chose this Riad based on the raving comments on Tripadvisor. I wish we had the same experience, but instead it was a disaster. The place itself is very nice. It has a nice décor and it is clean. We were welcomed with a nice mint tea and some delicious Moroccan cookies. It sounded like a nice start. We were... More

I book there 2 rooms for 3 nights reassure by the 9.2 rating on Booking.com. We stayed there only 1 night and cancel the next two after a horrible experience. We book a transfer with a driver from the station to the Riad as it is very difficult to access. We would have never find the massive door with the... More

We loved the beautiful Riad! What a wonderful hidden gem! Great location! Wonderful to be able to get out of the hustle and bustle. Marrakesh itself was a little intimidating but riad du ciel was our Oasis. Fantastic!

We rented the whole Riad du Ciel as a party of ten and we had 3 fabulous days there. The architecture and the interior decoration are simply perfect. Adriano, who runs the RdC, is more than a manager, he's a trustworthy advisor and became a friend. Karima and Rachid have been always ready to support us and fulfill our requests... More

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at the Riad du Ciel. It was magical. The hotel is romantic, intimate and superbly beautiful. It is close to all of the sites and the staff there was amazing!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riad du Ciel is a late-nineteenth-century Moroccan house which has been restored but keeps intact the features of a traditional riad: it has five comfortable rooms and offers its guests the style, the welcome and the elegance of a private home.The Riad du Ciel is situated in the heart of the Medina, or old town, close to the Medersa Ben Youssef and the Museum of Marrakech, about 8 minutes from Jemaa-el Fna Square. Access by car is easy.As you cross the threshold you leave the lively, chaotic sounds of the Medina, and magically enter an atmosphere of calm, restful peace.The ground floor opens onto a large courtyard or patio, full of light, with orange trees, a pool with comfortable seating and massaging water jets, and a relaxing outdoor seating area complete with cushions - a typical Arab "b'hou".The patio leads into the reception room with fireplace and TV, the kitchen and the Chambre des Etoiles, or Room of the Stars. The walkway leads to the house hammam and to a separate staircase which takes you directly to the Chambre Dorée, or Gilded Room. On the first floor are three spacious rooms: la Chambre du Ciel, or Room of the Sky, and the Chambre du Soleil, or Room of the Sun, which look onto the patio and the Chambre de la Musique, or Music Room, all with private terraces.The second floor has a terrace, one of the highest in Marrakech, with ample space for sunbathing, relaxing and just gazing at the horizon. ... more   less
