About Marrakech

The city of Marrakech is an exotic and vibrant mix of cultural influences and ancient traditions and for many represents the very soul of Morocco. Divided into two, the old part of town offers everything you'd expect of a Moroccan city - colourful markets and residents dressed in traditional outfits, whilst the newer Ville Nouvelle district is a hive of chic boutiques, galleries and modern young locals eagerly embracing the future.

One of the first sights you will see as you enter Marrakech is the Koutoubia Mosque, with its 230 foot high minaret, dating back to the 12th century. Djemâa el-Fna, the central square, spills out into a maze of souks where lively characters sell their wares and beckon would-be shoppers into their treasure-filled dens. The square is best seen in the evening when it’s overflowing with food stalls, dancers, henna artists and more. It is an assault on the senses the you can enjoy either by diving head first into it or by heading to one of the rooftops cafes and watching over the rim of your mint tea.

The souks have a variety of goods for sale and haggling is expected. Crisscrossing alleyways are overflowing with goods, from exquisite lanterns to beautiful tea sets, pointed shoes in the softest leather, as well as everyday wear. Little squares where the alleyways join usually have a cafe, great for taking a break from your shopping spree. It is easy to lose track of time as you wander through the little alleys.

The rich oranges and reds used to colour this accommodation give the building an authentic feel. This is combined with beautiful decorations including lamps, fountains and beautiful fabrics. This Riad is situated in the old town of Marrakech, right in the heart of the Medina, and is only 15 minutes from the main Marrakech square.

Le Meridien N'fis Marrakech

Riad Porte Royale Marrakech

Our Category: Superior   |   Regional Category: Mid Range Riad

Riad Porte Royale is a traditional courtyard house in the spiritual heart of the medina. Riad Porte Royale has a large central courtyard, a salon, a loggia and five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Parts of the riad date back to 1750, since which time the street level has risen over a metre and a half (five feet) above that of the original courtyard. Here you get an insight into local life, from the piles of mint and herbs sold every morning, to the families carrying dough to the local baker, to the tailor busy in his tiny shop.
