An oasis of tranquility in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Every room is differently decorated in exotic Moroccan style, and we were very impressed with matching golden bathroom accessories even down to the tissue box holder. Meals are served out on the rooftop terrace which has a breath taking view of the Atlas Mountains in the...

The room was beautifully decorated with air conditioning, making it a nice escape from the heat. The staff were polite and provided fantastic service. The breakfast on the roof top was a traditional Moroccan...

Riad le Desire is amazing place in Marrakech's Old Medina. A place to be!!! The owners are kindly people and staff attentive. The view on the roof to Atlas Mountains is fantastic. The lunch or the dinner are an excellent discovery of Moroccan cooking. The suite is very clean and every day there is an attention specially for the guest....

Cannot describe how good it was to have a fresh, friendly and cosy safeheaven in the most interesting but also the most caotic town in Morocco. The riad is a balanced mix between tradition and luxury, at very reasonable price. In addition, the managers are extremely careful and friendly. For instance, the managing women - Roberta, yes she is Italian!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Le desir welcomes you to Morocco, a boutique hotel family riad situated at the entrance to the old royal palace and close to the Djemma el Fnan sauqre. With 9 rooms, individually styled with flair and imagination, , we believe we offer a truly personal experience, a home away from home where guests can relax in an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the medina outside. The Riad is located in the historical city center , in strategic position for its proximity to the airport (the aitport in marrakech is located in the city) , with direct access by car and a second pedestrian-only entrance that is located within the walls of the Medina. ... more   less
