Due to scruples contained within Islamic texts it is forbidden to depict living creatures such as humans or animals. This has not however stopped the Islamic world from developing its own very distinctive and beautiful forms of art, indeed many of the forms and shapes expressed within the realms of Islamic art certainly have benefited from these cultural directives. One has simply to look at any mosque found anywhere in the world to appreciate the beauty that can be found in Islamic calligraphy and tessellation. Marrakech is one such place where these sights can be found in abundance and great variation, within the Medina. Any number of the great landmarks that are to be found within the Medina can be seen to display such magnificent pieces.


A real Moroccon experience can be greatly enriched by taking in such wonders, which are to be found all over the old town. Luckily this is all within short walking distance of our wonderful Riad Cinnamon

The hottest restaurant recommendation in Marrakech. Packed with expats but rarely visited by tourists. Reservation is essential Tuesday to Saturday, on Sunday and Monday le Studio is closed.

Established in 2011 in the heart of the up and coming new town of Marrakech, Le Studio is a smart and very stylish restaurant boasting an outstanding menu of French culinary classics with an international twist. The Thai Beef particularly is to be recommended, and indeed it would seem that beef is this restaurants speciality, naturally it being Morocco it was never going to be pork, but without a doubt nearly all the beef dishes in the restaurant are exceptional. That is not to say that the beef averse should not visit this restaurant, there is also a fine selection of other dishes, including very pleasant fish and vegetarian offerings. One can even partake in a very fine foie gras if they are inclined to do so. These fine dishes are naturally complimented by an excellent wine selection bringing together some truly outstanding Moroccan wines which are specially tailored to the menu.

The staff are very friendly and attentive, speaking both French and English and they certainly give a very fine representation of the restaurant as a whole. The manager one Steeve Verbeek is a most accommodating individual and a very pleasant man to encounter whilst having in a meal in his fine restaurant, indeed the feeling of a truly personal service is one which of the things which helps to make a visit to Le Studio such an enjoyable and memorable experience. The décor of the restaurant is also very impressive, sticking naturally to the theme that its name implies the layout is a chic homage to an Hollywood studio, with the furniture and the layout oozing style. Not only this but the restaurant sports a rather interesting retractable roof, allowing for cool eating in during the often rather warm Moroccan nights. All in all if you are looking for an excellent meal in Marrakech in elegant and stylish surroundings then one should look no further than Le Studio. It is situated on avenue Mouley Rachid behind the popular café de poste. A mere 5 minute taxi drive or a 15 minute walk, our Riads are in a prime position to take advantage of this exciting new culinary development. Book our Riads now to avoid disappointment.

For a window into Islamic culture in the Mahgreb and the religious institutions that greatly influenced its development. One can do a lot worse than to visit the Ben Youssef Madrassa. Originally founded during the 14th Century during the Marinid Period by Sultan Abu al-Hassan, the building was first brought to great prominence by its reconstruction and overhaul from 1564-65 by the Sultan Abdul al- Hassan.
Since that point it was the largest Madrassa in the whole of Morocco, bringing the city great prestige and cultural influence. The Ben Youssef was no ordinary school however, it was more akin to a self contained educational community. With 132 rooms and hundreds of students living and learning within its magnificent walls. This combined with its location in the Medina in the historic old town, just a few minutes walk from the Central square Djemaa el Fna makes it one of Marrakech’s primary cultural destinations. Once you enter the building you immediately see why it is such a famous place in the Islamic world. The architecture and decoration proudly displays many of the facets and aspects of Islamic building and design that has made them so renowned for their beauty and aesthetic appeal. Inside the Madrassa is a myriad of tesselated colours, blues and greens beautifully contrasting with browns and white. The courtyard which is adjacent to the prayer room is truly a beautiful place one in which it is very difficult to not have a feeling of great tranquillity even in the famed Moroccan heat. One can also not fail to notice the intricate inscriptions which abound all over the complex. It is not merely the incredible shaped which these inscriptions take but the incredible detail which the inscriptions take, one can scarcely fail to be amazed by the delicacy and fantastical patterns in the form of the writing . It is however not merely your average tourists who have come to appreciate the wonders of this place but indeed it has become a favoured place to visit for passing royals as in recent years the Madrassa has been visited both by the King and Queen of the Netherlands and the Queen of Spain, surely a ringing endorsement from European royalty.  All these things coupled with the Madrassa’s prime location and relative ease of access make it a must for any culture or history buffs visiting Marrakech.

Opening Times: Every day from 9h30 to 18pm
Entrance fee: 50 dh for the Adult and 30 dh for children
You can purchase a joint ticket to visit both the Medersa and the Musee De Marrakech

The oldest building in Marrakech is the Kouba Baroudiyine, the washrooms from the original Mosque built by, and named after Ben Yussef the second King of the Almoravid dynasty. Sadly this is the only remaining example of the highly decorated architecture of this period. It features some fantastic details which are echoed in later islamic buildings.

The Kouba was completed in the year 1117 and the foundations have an inscription which is believed to be the oldest inscription in cursive script in the whole of North Africa.  It reads ‘I was created for science and prayer, by the prince of the believers, descendant of the prophet, Abdallah, most glorious of all Caliphs. Pray for him when you enter the door, so that you may fulfill your highest hopes.’

To the east of the Koubba are a series of vaulted chambers which were reservoirs for the washroom was supplied by water from the Atlas mountains channelled through the remarkable Almoravid system of canals and underground channels that also fed the public fountains of Marrakech and made possible the remarkable growth of the walled city in this period.

Opening Times: Every day from 9h to 13h and from 14h30 to 18h
Entrance fee: 10 dh

Our Riad Cinnamon is located just a few hundred yards from the Kouba. The great thing about staying in such a central location is you can enjoy the monuments and museums, retreat to the privacy of the Riad, then go out again to the hustle and bustle of the souks!  Reserve accommodation today!

The donkey and cart is a common sight in the medina of Marrakech where the streets are too narrow for truck and vans. These docile and dependable creatures, known as ‘brill’ in arabic are essential to everyday life.

A Riad hotel in the Medina is the perfect base from which to explore and experience this ancient way of life at first hand.

We adore Marrakech, the old town has beautiful Boutique hotels, a host of restaurants and so many stylish shops that it is sometimes easy to forget that Morocco is a developing country. When packing for Marrakech it is important to choose the right footwear for walking in the Medina. Lovers of stillettos and espadrilles be warned! Leave these shoes out of your suitcase and instead pack sturdy walking boots or shoes and the most comfortable sandals you own.

The only people I see in Marrakech who are wearing stillettos (and there are some) are usually Italian women who are part of a coach trip where presumably no one was kind enough to warn them of the dangers of stillettos in the medina. Dont get me wrong-I love stillettos and still (on occasion) sport a pair when going to a posh do at home. But they are completely and totally unsuitable and in fact outright dangerous for walking within the old town Medina.

The derbs (streets) are mostly earth or cobbles and even where earth paths have been ‘upgraded’ they are still grossly uneven. The likelihood of stumbling is pretty high for anyone wearing flat shoes on these uneven roads so for someone wearing stillettos it is an inevitability.

Those on their first trip to Marrakech have no idea how much walking is involved when exploring the medina-those of us who are hardened bargain seekers and shoppers can walk miles from one souk to another for hours on end-if you are wearing high heels then expect to get blisters after the first hour and Im afraid you are unlikely to find a taxi to take you back home to your hotel so you will have to hobble all the way home to nurse your sore tootsies and buy some plasters and cushioned pads for your mistreated feet!

The other issue for open toed high heels is that when it rains in Marrakech it really does rain-big tennis ball sized drops of rain that quickly turn the earth to mud so any elegant toes in high heels very quickly become rather unattractively spattered with black grit and grey water up to the knees. You are highly likely to slip in this kind of weather too.

Finally another reason to put on your mums ecco shoes or your mountain boots is that donkey carts and motor bikes seem to have right of way in the medina over pedestrians so you might need to be quite nifty on your feet to get out of the way of that teenager carring grandma on the back of his honda!

If you must bring that pair of killer heels then save them for the nightlife-a night out at Pasha or a stroll along the Mohammed V in Guilez or clubbing in the Palmerie or Hivernage. Or if you are staying at a Riad and taking dinner on the terrace where the only walking that will be required will be from your room up the stairs to the terrace.

When I travel toMarrakech I put fashion to one side and focus on comfort. I always pack a sturdy pair of walking shoes or even boots with ankles (in spite of the hot weather) and I bring several pairs of thick walking socks. I also bring a pair of low padded sandles for short walks and for evenings out when I know I will take a taxi part of the way. And I have a rather mumsy pair of ecco shoes (which I love) so that I can alternate between shoes so that my feet dont get blisters or become achy.

In our riads-PapillonCinnamon and Dar Habiba we provide washable slippers for our guests to use whilst they are with us so that they can give their feet a good rest!

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 wood wholesaler is a very important figure in Marrakech.  There are several specialist ‘wood men’ located near to the City walls supplying wood which will be burned in traditional Hammans and bakeries as well as Riads and pivate homes. Wood is sold by weight, measured on the scale by the entrance, and usually delivered by donkey and cart.

The Kingdom of  Morocco will host the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Football tournament in the face of strong competition from recent world cup hosts South Africa who will host the 2017 competition. Morocco last hosted the tournament in 1988.

Marrakech will be an important host City with the newly opened ‘Stade de Marrakech’ the first stadium in Morocco to feature corporate hospitality on a par with the top European stadia.

A Marrakech Riad is always a perfect base for any stay in Marrakech.

Our Marrakech Riads offer fantastic value. Reserve accommodation at the show or online!

We have had the pleasure of welcoming many guests from Norway. In the best Marrakech tradition those who arrive as guests usually leave as friends.

Marrakech Riad are grateful to our friend Bjorn Loeden, a gifted photographer, for kindly allowing us to show a selection of his images of the Red City, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Bjorn and his delightful wife Sunni based themselves with us at Riad Papillon for a month in the winter of 2010. What better way to escape the harsh Norwegian winter.
