My girlfriend and myself were so lucky to be the first to stay in this amazing Riad!!
The luxurious Riad has a great location about 10 minute easy walk to Djemaa el Fna. Includes breakfast & Free WiFi
Palacio de las Especias was opened in Dec 2012 after a couple years of meticulous renovations by the owners. Jose did a wonderful job of keeping the historical integrity of the Riad. As you enter a feeling that you have walked into a luxurious palace from the 18th century transcends. There are doors and other accent pieces throughout from hundreds of years ago that decorate The Riad . The guest rooms were designed with great detail, including lighting, bedding and local wood work. In the bathrooms there are bear claw bathtubs.
Jose and his team provided second to none service even inviting us to go out to dinner with him.
The detail and service is truly what separates this Riad from the hundreds of others in Marrakech. After a long day wondering the souks this is a perfect Riad for relaxing.
On my next trip to Marrakech without a doubt I will be staying here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palacio de las Especias recovers the splendour of a building erected in the 19th century. The building was originally owned by the Echerid family, who were spice merchants but, unfortunately, the years and neglect had taken their toll. Today, respecting the original building, but adapting it to provide the comfort that an establishment of this nature deserves, it opens its rooms from within the heart of the Medina, in order to provide its visitors with the enjoyment and relaxation they are looking for. The decor of its rooms, the coolness of its patios, the murmuring of its fountains and the peaceful evenings on the terrace mean that resting inside its rooms becomes the happy ending to a perfect day. ... more less
