I was very impressed with the organisation before we arrived as Philipa will email you to prearrange everything for you from airport transfers to trips and evening meals. As two young girls staying in Marrakech for the first time we were a little nervous and I think we could have felt a little overwhelmed when we first arrived in the... More

Our stay at Riad Porte Royale was nothing short of wonderful. As two young women traveling alone, we were slightly nervous about coming to Morocco. Philipa was extremely informative over email, and ensured we would have private transportation to and from the airport. There was also an enormous homemade breakfast waiting for us upon our arrival! Lahcen (the Riad's manager)... More

Dear Philip, Just a short message to let you know we really enjoyed our short, but intense stay @ the riad. Lahcen and Najat were so helpful and kind, it was truly wonderful! We will recommend the place to all people visiting Marrakech in the future and hope to be back soon! Kind regards Kevin

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at the Riad Porte Royale, inside the old medina. The "face" of the Riad, Lahcen, was very helpful and welcoming... The rooms were very clean and cozy and homey!!!! Breakfast was good and fulfilling. If ever I return to Morocco I would defiantly stay here again.

If you are looking for a Riad in the medina, then look no further. You are steps away from the hustle and bustle of the old town - and yet it's really quiet - even when relaxing on the rooftop terrace. The manager, Lahcen is fantastic and was always on hand with any further information needed - and to accompany... More

Secreted away in the magical alleys in the NW corner of the old city, behind a (marked, thankfully) door, Riad Porte Royale is a beautiful refuge amid the hectic pace around. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The upper terrace is breezy and spacious. And best of all, Phillipa and Lassan, who were our hosts, were absolutely delightful and saw... More

This is a lovely building, well restored and very peaceful. In the hot weather the little pool was a godsend. Food was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially in arranging onward travel.

The riad is beautiful and calm, which complements the heat and bustle of Marrakech perfectly. The staff took great care of us, welcoming us as soon as we arrived and making sure we would not get lost. Special thanks must be made to Badr, the perfect host, who very patiently listened to our bad Arabic and to our great delight... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We practise ethical tourism and are legally registered as a 'Maison d'Hôtes Deuxième Catégorie' no.288/2015. Featured in the international press and guidebooks, Riad Porte Royale was build around 250 years ago close to the ramparts in an historic quarter of the medina, a short walk to major monuments, the souks, the Majorelle Garden and well-known restaurants. Renovated with traditional materials, the white walls are accented with rugs, rare textiles and artefacts from the caravan routes of Africa and Asia. All five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the pure Moroccan style make the atmosphere dreamy and zen. Breakfast is included, Wi-Fi and filtered drinking water is free and our Bio shower gel and shampoo contains argane. Meals at the riad, transport and excursions can be arranged. Riad Porte Royale is a perfect place to unwind with a drink or mint tea after a day of sensory overdose in Marrakech! ... more   less
