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.
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.
