If you go to Marrakesh you should stay at Riad El Arsat. It is a beautiful small palace in the medina. The streets outside are busy but inside the portal of Riad El Arsat there is air, calm, a beautiful garden and an inviting swimming pool. The rooms are nicely decorated. The breakfast is very good as everything else that...

I think this is now my favourite hotel. Only eight rooms share the largest private garden in the Marrakech medina (it's so big you can easily spot it on Google satellite maps!). On two sides of the garden are arranged sympathetically-restored elegant and comfortable rooms, hammam, jacuzzi, pool, large colonnaded salon, roof terrace etc. The garden itself is dense, bird-filled...

We stayed in the Riad for 2 nights, everything was absolutely perfect! Charles arranged for us to get picked up from the airport as we arrived late at night. We had our dinner at the first night in the Riad, both wine and food were delicious. We were then upgraded to a bigger room as the Riad wasn't too busy,...

Like everyone else who has reviewed El Arsat, we too loved it. So what to say that has'nt already been said? Charles and Agnes and their staff are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They have a lovely small Hammam and a hot tub on the upper terrace and you can have an excellent massage if you...

This is one of the few Riads with a good sized garden and pool in the Medina. A 10 minute walk from the main square and other places of interest. The local staff is friendly though a little shy. Exception is Slimmen, who speaks good english and is very willing to help out. The owner appeared to show less true...

Entering this garden of eden for the first time is difficult to describe. Respectful and fortunate are the two first words comming into my mind, and everyday when we returned from the roaring Berber Souk we enjoyed the accommodation and tranquility to the full. Charles and the staff made this trip unforgettable, and they were helpful in any way needed....

If you want tranquility right next door to the hustle and bustle of the Berber souk, the largest traditional market in Morocco, and what visitor to Marrakech doesn’t? - then Raid El Arsat, a lovingly restored and delightfully hosted old merchant's property, is the place for you.

Two couples stayed here for one night - the next day we were flying home. We would have been very happy to spend more days here. It has an uninviting entrance at the end of a dusty narrow passage - and then you are ushered in to a wonderful open space with garden pond, pool etc. One of the largest...

Riadh El Arsat is one of the most beautiful and seculded joys I have encountered in a very long time - the last Garden of Eden if you will. Charles (the proprieter) was every helpful and wonderfully accomodating to our every need: organizing taxis, drinks, and meals for us. We had a room by the pool which was an absolute...

Raid El Arsat is a beautiful Marrakech experience that I challenge you not to love! By rights, it should have a much higher Tripadvisor ranking. From the moment you enter the gates, it feels like you are in your own private palace. The delightful hosts have created something stunning from a very old merchant's property - it is lovingly restored,...
