Riads in Marrakech, Marrakech

A truly well run riad hotel in the heart of the medina.

ABOUT

Doing what it says on the French-named tin, this once-royal riad-hotel dates back to the 19th century and offers a leafy oasis deep inside the cacophony of Marrakech’s old town.  High walls guard a lush garden of orange, olive and jacaranda trees, and hammocks surround a spacious, heated pool that gets the sun all day. The Jemaa-el-Fna square, Marrakech’s iconic epicentre with its unique brand of brouhaha, is a pleasant 20-minute walk – or bargain-priced petit taxi ride – away.

ROOMS

Scattered around the main courtyard, the 36 spacious bedrooms are decorated in light colours and soft fabrics, plus attractive bathrooms with traditional zilij (mosaic) finishes.  The Solarium Rooms have the additional boon of their own rooftop sun terraces, and Superior Rooms boast floral balconies where breakfast can be taken.  For families, the large ground-floor Sultanes Rooms are best.

FACILITIES

One of the few riads with a full-sized pool.  Les Jardins’ spa is excellent, with a variety of relaxing treatments and massage options.  There’s also a fine restaurant serving traditional Moroccan dishes with an eastern twist, and a cookery school teaching those same meals.  The rooftop offers soaring views of the Atlas Mountains – or of the Royal Palace, which is handily located next-door.

MORE INFO

Les Jardins’ cleverest trick is to affect a riad-like quietude while simultaneously delivering modernity more typical of a boutique hotel.  Happily, the very reasonable prices remain more riad, less boutique hotel.  Proud member of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection.

Very good location...

Very good location away from the madding crowd but in easy reach of getting everywhere by foot and facilities very good. We had the most expensive room which I thought would be on the roof top with a terrace but it wasn’t – located on the ground floor. However, was very nice large room with comfortable bed and the TV even had BBC channels! Room was at the other end of the hotel to the reception / dining area so was nice and quiet. Food was very good and the staff very helpful. Swimming pool small and overrun with children when the sun did shine so didn’t get a chance to try it. The roof top was lovely and afforded wonderful views.
