The riad was amazing me and a few friends of mine went to Marrakech for a birthday get away and I have to say Mohammed and Hamid were amazing hosts they took real good care of us and made us feel at home. We would definitely recommend it, they are really kind and humble people who are always around to... More

Tasty food, excellent rooms, rooftop with jacuzzi and always smiling staff. The only regret was to stay there first days. No other hotel could beat it around Marrakech. Good quality for a very competitive price. Located in the heart of Medina. Safe place and taxi station nearby. If you wake up early you can get a bicycle from the riad... More

We were greeted by Hamid who welcomed us to this lovely Riad. I would recommend the airport pickup as it would be difficult to find without (as with all Riads in the medina). The location was good, far enough away to escape the craziness of the centre of the medina but close enough to walk in. Hamid made our stay... More

I would highly recommend Riad Pilau as a place to stay in Marrakech. Hamid and Mohamed were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome and ensured we had everything needed for our stay. They organised the day tour of the Atlas mountains through Toureg Excursions, a thoroughly enjoyable day out of the busy city. Rooms were cleaned everyday and... More

This is an excellent place to stay. It's about 1km to the square which is perfect because it means you can chill on the roof without hearing the snake charmers and other city noise. Mohamed and Hamid make this Riad excellent. They are kind, helpful and funny. Anything you need help with they'll take care of. Rooms aren't huge but... More

This little Riad has got it all: peaceful location in the Medina (incredible, i know!), beatifully decorated clean rooms, outdoor space and great food. The hosts, Mohamed and Hamid, are very welcoming and they really make you feel at home, offering the right balance between giving you privacy and always being there for you. Everything you've previously read about them... More

This was now my second stay in Riad Palau and I still like it very much! Both Sultana and Royale room are really spacious and with unique local decoration. You get everything you need - from a strong A/C to a big bathroom with a well running shower. The common area of this riad with only 4 rooms is very... More

The friendliest, most welcoming and unique place we've ever stayed. Mohammed and Hammed couldn't have been better hosts! Highly recommend you stay here if you come to Marrakech....right in the heart of the medina with easy access to the traditional Moroccan culture.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Palau is the result of Sonia and Josep Maria's dream, a couple from northern Spain who always had the illusion of owning a Riad and manage it as a Guest House in the medina of Marrakech. Riad Palau is an ancient small palace placed in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods of Marrakesh. Two years of restoration held by the best artisans in the medina and the experience and help of our friends Manel and David guarantee that your stay in Riad Palau and in the "Red City" won't be easy to forget. ... more   less
