I spent three nights at the Riad de l'Orientale. I would like highlight the perfect location close to Jemaa El Fnaa but in a peaceful street. A verd Good breakfast and a friendly and efficient staff in a lovely atmosphere and architecture.

Since my first stay in 2007 at this lovely and authentic Riad in the heart of the Medina very close to the big square i consider this house as my second home. Individually decorated rooms around a typical moroccan patio with mosaic fountain and orange trees - all traditionally reconstructed by the hands of moroccan craftsmen. Enjoy the calm atmosphere...

Located just a two minute from Jemaa el Fna, we found Riad de L’Orientale to be an ideal base for exploring Marrakech, perfectly contrasted to the hustle and bustle of the Medina.

“We had first two rooms on the left as you come up the stairs one double, one with twin beds-both were great. There is a room at the top of the riad with a little private terrace above the main roof terrace which has a great lounging area. The couple staying in that room were pleased as well.”
