We stayed there for 3 days this week and found the riad absolutely charming. The staff were very friendly and helpful--arranging pickups to and from the airport as well as supplying directions everywhere and arranging a car to take us to Essaouira (recommended).The riad is down some twisting alleyways but soon it is very easy to find--it is very close to the main square being in the heart of the Medina.We had dinner at the riad on two of the nights as it is such a quiet and peaceful place to be after being hassled all day!--the food was excellent. My only quibbles(or suggestions) would be that the showers were rather difficult to normalise(i.e. too hot or too weak)and that it would be a welcome addition if it might be possible to have a cold drink machine somewhere in the raid for the moments when you return from a hot and stressed trip into the souks! Otherwise a perfect place to stay.

I stayed at the Riad Magellan for 6 nights and I can highly recommend it for an extended stay in Marrakesh. The Riad is conveniently located, and Philippe the owner was very helpful in explaining the geography of the medina meaning that we did not get lost very often, as well as recommending the best places to eat and visit. It is beautifully furnished and we stayed in the Plum room. Dinner was complementary on the first night, and so we were breakfasts every morning. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome - thank you!

Riad Magellan is a peaceful little property situated in the heart of Marrakech. Upon our arrival we were greeted with some refreshing mint tea. The owner, Philippe, was very pleasant and helpful. He provided us with some recommendations for dining and attractions as well as tips on how to interact with locals. We enjoyed our stay very much. However, since we rely heavily upon internet access, we found the wi-fi connection a little unreliable and confined to a small area in the foyer. This is the only thing we could suggest for improvement. Otherwise, a great little find!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few night in June 2013. The riad is in the center of the medina with easy access to the souks and a 5 minute walk to the Djemma El Fina (main square). The staff was friendly, morning breakfasts delicious and rooms clean and quiet. I would highly recommend staying here. Phillipe the owner from France gave good advice on spots to visit in the medina and dining options. Advice take the airport transport 15 euro, without it navigating through the medina fresh off an airplane for the first time can be overwhelming.

Ideal location for exploring the souks, main tourist attractions and less than 10 minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna, yet Riad Magellan is a cool oasis of peace and tranquility amid the lively bustle of Marrakech at 43 degrees. Love the decor, stylish accoutrements and little details like rose petals on my pillow. Stayed in the blue room which was small but had everything you need, including a great shower.
Staff were smiling, friendly and helpful throughout and nothing was too much trouble, from organising a trip to the Atlas mountains, to how you like your eggs for breakfast. I was particularly impressed that Phillipe, the owner, introduced himself to all guests, made suggestions for places to visit and seemed genuinely concerned to ensure we had the best possible time.
Fantastic value for money, have recommended it to my friends and hope to return soon!

Room Tip: Choose ground floor rooms if you have trouble climbing steep stairs.
