All our Marrakech Collections:

Marrakech is without doubt the premier tourist destination in Morocco, and many of the best places to stay in Marrakech have become destinations in their own right. The city offers more than a touch of exoticism and romance, with its old souks, fascinating Medina, and ancient buildings - many of which have been converted into atmospheric riads and hotels.

The best places to stay in Marrakech are located, generally, either in or in close proximity to the Medina. There are also some lovely hotels just outside the city some of which are included in our list.

For luxury and 4/5 star comforts and facilities you will probably end up staying in one of the hotels outside the Medina, but it you want to get the real Marrakech experience, book a riad inside it, because these are the most exciting and atmospheric places to stay. For a full listing of Medina hotels check out our Ultimate Guide.

Best places to stay in Marrakech for an authentic feel

With so many properties claiming to offer an “authentic” experience, it is often tricky to know where to start when selecting a hotel with a truly Moroccan feel. Our favourites from our selection of the best places to stay in Marrakech would have to be Jnane Tamsna and the Riad Madani.

  • Riad Madani oozes shabby-chic and feels very much like a home from home. In addition to its great central location it also boasts an outdoor pool and roomy reception areas
  • Jnane Tamsna is owned by the legendary Meryanne Loum-Martin, renowned for her style and hospitality. Spread amongst three separate villas, there are 24 en suite bedrooms, plus numerous dining areas, sitting rooms and outdoor spaces. Add to this the nine acre gardens and five swimming pools and you’ve got the perfect foil to the busy medina.

Best places to stay in Marrakech – Value for money

With the rise in popularity of Marrakech as a short break destination, it is increasingly hard to find value for money. We have discovered a few of the best places to stay in Marrakech which still offer such value.

  • Riad al Bushra is a newcomer to the scene. It offers five suites, all excellent value for money with prices starting a just €75 per night. The location too is perfect, in the heart of the Medina, a stone's throw from all major attractions.
  • Riyad Edward, just outside the medina, offers precisely that! Simple and old fashioned, yet full of character and charm it is incredibly good value for money, plus it can boast the highest roof terrace in town, so great views are guaranteed.
  • The Jardins d’Issil, where 15 caidal tents are set up around a huge infinity pool. Is unusual and fantastic value for money. Located just outside Marrakech itself, the view of the Atlas Mountains are incredible and you can book B&B from as little as €30 per person per night.

Best places to stay in Marrakech for foodies

  • Foodies will enjoy a stay at Le Riad Monceau a luxuriously equipped Riad-Hotel with a cookery school alongside its excellent restaurant. As if that weren’t enough there’s a great patio with pool and hammam-spa for pampering treatments after a busy day honing your culinary skills.
  • Dar Les Cigognes, is another top choice. In 2012 it won the accolade of Best Cooking School in Morocco. Here you also get beautifully decorated rooms and stunning city views from the roof top terrace.

Best family friendly places to stay in Marrakech

  • The Riyad el Cadi is filled with fine furniture and art but manages to also be suitable for families. There is a rooftop sun terrace and cookery classes are also offered. Book one of the suites or the villa if you’re travelling with the tribe.
  • Riad Kaiss is another good family option. Bang in the centre of town it is perfect for exploring all that Marrakech has to offer. With just nine rooms and suites it would make the ideal location for an extended family gathering or special occasion.

Best places to stay in Marrakech for luxury and romance

  • Les Cinq Djellabas is an encampment of ten African eco lodges, offering the perfect spot to chill out away from the buzz of the medina. The feel is barefoot luxury - where contemporary minimalist design blends easily with traditional Moroccan craftsmanship. Ideal for groups and extremely private.
  • The Kasbah Agafay is an 18th Century mud fort transformed into an almost fantasy destination with outdoor spa, cooking school and romantic sleeping tents.
  • Equally romantic and perfect for honeymoons is the Ksar Char Bagh, a Moorish Palace with tranquil gardens and an enormous outdoor pool.
  • The French-owned Villa des Orangers has sophisticated rooms and a luxurious hammam for proper pampering.
  • The Riad El Fenn is another superb desination for a luxurious hammam experience where you can also enjoy food grown in the riad's own garden, open fires and deep baths with soothing fragrant oils.
