My girlfriend and I stayed with Franck at Riad L'Etoile D'Orient for 2 nights in November 2011 and can honestly say that it was one of the best stay's we've had at any hotel, anywhere. Just a short walk from Jemaa El Fna - but still tucked away on a quite street - the perfect escape from the enjoyable hustle of life in the Medina.
From the moment we stepped in the door - the staff was friendly and accommodating. Franck so kindly upgraded us to a bigger room as well - a very lovely surprise.
The room was perfect. A wonderful spa-like bathroom; amazingly comfortable bed; robes and slippers - everything we could ask for after a 2 day trek up Jebel Toubkal.
We were asked what time we'd like them to have breakfast ready for us (another nice surprise, as I had no idea breakfast was included)! After an incredible sleep - we came downstairs to a great breakfast laid out just for us. Cereals, fruit, yoghurt, cakes and pastries, pancakes, juice, tea, coffee - just perfect!
Initially, we had only planned to stay a single night - but after our arrival, we immediately went to Franck to ask if we could stay for another night. We did not want to leave!
If/when we do return to Marrakech - we will no doubt stay at Riad L'Etoile D'Orient again.
We cannot recommend this place enough - stay, stay, stay!
