“Minimal and peaceful in the heart of the Medina”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I've stayed at several riads in the Medina and particularly like this one.

It's design is minimal and elegant, with traditional touches. The entire place is very clean and the staff friendly and accommodating.

Unlike some other riads, which are difficult to find on one's own, this is an easy, 1-minute walk from the Bahai Palace (one of Marrakech's landmarks).

As a woman traveling alone, I felt totally safe and well taken care of. And I enjoyed the spa :)

Marrakech was an excellent place for a holiday - a holiday anyone would enjoy if they stayed at this Riad. Getting to and from the airport can be organised by the Riad, which I would highly recommend, as it really reduces the stress of your journey, for a very reasonable price. The place is beautiful throughout - from the large well furnished bedrooms, to the relaxing elegant communal areas. The rooftop is particularly worth mentioning, with views out across Marrakech - perfect for a night time drink, or a relaxing rest during the day. Equally, the location is perfect. Within 10 minutes walk of the Jemma al Fna Square, you are right in the heart of all the key attractions. The owners of the Riad are fantastic. In addition to providing you with a map and any local knowledge/suggestions you require, they are very friendly, whilst unobtrusive, providing perfect hospitality. Lastly, and certainly not least of all, the large breakfast provided and lunches/dinners available upon request are fantastic. All the food is fresh, tasty, and comes in large portions :)! To summarise, if you are coming to Marrakech, this is the right Riad to stay in, to ensure your holiday is right in every way. I could not recommend it enough. PS Make sure you take advantage of their Spa Facilities!!

Perhaps my favorite hotel experience. It's a family run hotel and you feel at home the minute you arrive. The place is extremely elegant, peaceful and quietly luxurious. The restoration of the property has been superbly carried out. Rooms are well maintained, bright and very comfortable. Lovely terrace, fab spa, great breakfasts. All along our stay, the staff were extremely helpful and professional. Great value for money.

This was my first Raid experience, and very enjoyable it was too. From the comfortable, beautifully furnished room to the roof terrace with fantastic views across to the snow-capped Atlas mountains, I couldn't have asked for a more restful time. The staff were unobtrusive, but vey friendly and helpful, and the information and recommendations for places to visit and eat invaluable to this first-time visitor to Marrakech.

I'm recommending this Raid to friends, and can't wait to visit again!

Al kasar is located near Jemma al Fna square, about 15 minutes walking distance.
It is a nice and clean hotel and I strongly recommend you to book a room in that Riad, however prices of what they offer are high and in euros.

Try to avoid to do with them any excursion neither to take a taxi to the airport because you can find the same they offer for half of the price. Marrakesh is a safety city, so don't hesitate to apply for excursions in any agency you can find walking on the street.

we spent the week end at the Ryad, nice and warm atmosphere in the heart of the Medina !
we booked the Transfert from the Airport which is great to go straight away and fast to the Riad on arrival.
The staff gave us a lot of informations about the destination which was really useful, they took the time to answer to every needs
the room is clean,warm,confortable and very quiet
the roof terrace give you a stuning view to marrackech and the Atlas mountains
we will come back to this riad for sure when we come to visit the city again !

Dont look anywhere else. We have been in marrakech many times and the Riad Al Ksar is definitely the best value for money riad in the medina of marrakech. Great central location, stunning architecture and great comfort, very romantic atmosphere with discreet but efficient staff, and most of all amazing spa treatments.
Not to be missed !
