Salam Eileikum and welcome to Marrakech Riad, Boutique hotel accommodation in Marrakech, Morocco.

Marrakech is an exciting & relatively safe city, common sense is the new visitors biggest asset. Above all we would suggest that you do not over plan your stay, allow plenty of time for exploring at your own pace. The central location of our Riads means you can retreat to the calm of the Riad from time to time and enjoy a complimentary mint tea on the patio or roof terrace.

  • Remember sun screen, sun hat, sun glasses, comfortable shoes, Riad Papillon or Riad Cinnamon Dar Habiba, or Riad Star address (your Riad Guardian can supply a location map).
  • In the summer it is an excellent idea to take water out with you but it is polite to be discrete about drinking during the holy month of Ramadan when the locals are fasting
  • Confidence is the key! If your body language is positive you are much less likely to attract unwanted attention.
  • The Old town of Marrakech, particularly the area South of the Riad through the Souks to the square is regularly patrolled by plain clothes tourist police known as the ‘brigade touristique’
  • The  narrow streets of the Medina may seem chaotic but there is some ‘method to the madness’.  Pedestrians generally keep to the right (unless they are seeking shade) leaving  wheeled vehicles to whiz down the middle. Walking slowly down the middle of the road while reading a map is therefore generally a bad idea!
  • Make sure you have some cash with you-including small change for taxi fares, drinks, guides & tips.
  • ‘Hard Currency’ (Euros, Sterling or US$) can be a positive bargaining point if you are buying larger items. Credit cards are not widely used.
  • A local pay as you go mobile phone is usually available for you to use during your stay. You can buy calling cards from kiosks throughout the medina. Please remember to return it ready for the next guests at the end of your stay!
  • Marrakech is a City where your choice of accommodation can make the difference between an outstanding stay and a disappointing one. At Marrakech Riad our English speaking staff provide a Warm Moroccan Welcome and will do their very best to make you fell at home in the Medina. Contact us to make your reservation!

Small or ‘petit’ taxis in Marrakech can take up to three passengers. Painted a distinctive yellow they are a common sight on the streets of the Red City. We are happy to help visitors to Marrakech with travel advice whether or not they  are guests in our luxury Marrakech Riads. For five or ten minute journeys aound the old town or to nearby Guiliez the drivers often do not put on the meter, there is no need to worry about this. It is polite to give 15 or 20 dirhams (the meter would probably go to less than 10) if the driver demands more walk away with confidence you have been fair with him. For longer journeys ask them to put the meter on and round up to the nearest 10 dirhams.

The ancient City of Marrakech has been constructed and reconstructed over many centuries, with successive generation often recycling the same building material.
