Secreted away in the magical alleys in the NW corner of the old city, behind a (marked, thankfully) door, Riad Porte Royale is a beautiful refuge amid the hectic pace around. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The upper terrace is breezy and spacious. And best of all, Phillipa and Lassan, who were our hosts, were absolutely delightful and saw...

This is a lovely building, well restored and very peaceful. In the hot weather the little pool was a godsend. Food was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially in arranging onward travel.

Thank you so much for your review. I must say it was a pleasure to meet not only you but your family and appreciated the fact that you were so interested in discovering more about North African culture (especially, Marrakech!). I hope you enjoyed the rest of your journey!

The riad is beautiful and calm, which complements the heat and bustle of Marrakech perfectly. The staff took great care of us, welcoming us as soon as we arrived and making sure we would not get lost. Special thanks must be made to Badr, the perfect host, who very patiently listened to our bad Arabic and to our great delight...

I have been staying at the Riad Porte Royale since I first visited nearly eight years ago. It's always a superb experience! It really is an oasis amongst the busy hustle of life in the Medina. It's well out of the tourist areas, so once you step outside it's doors you're right in the centre of daily life as lived...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We practise ethical tourism and are legally registered as a 'Maison d'Hôtes Deuxième Catégorie' no.288/2015. Featured in the international press and guidebooks, Riad Porte Royale was build around 250 years ago close to the ramparts in an historic quarter of the medina, a short walk to major monuments, the souks, the Majorelle Garden and well-known restaurants. Renovated with traditional materials, the white walls are accented with rugs, rare textiles and artefacts from the caravan routes of Africa and Asia. All five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the pure Moroccan style make the atmosphere dreamy and zen. Breakfast is included, Wi-Fi and filtered drinking water is free and our Bio shower gel and shampoo contains argane. Meals at the riad, transport and excursions can be arranged. Riad Porte Royale is a perfect place to unwind with a drink or mint tea after a day of sensory overdose in Marrakech! ... more   less

“The Kilim room is my favourite, but I can't explain why! Over the past eight years I think I, or friends, have slept in each of the rooms. The ground floor rooms are chillier in winter, but also have no need of A/C in summer. That's the beauty of the traditional design and build of this Riad.”

“all the rooms are amazing. We stayed on the first floor to the left of the pool. We enjoyed hearing our group begin to gather so we knew when to get around. It was still very private and we loved putting our feet in the pool after a long day of walking.”
