About this listing

We're a traditional, family-owned and run riad situated in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech. It is a perfect example of a a two hundred and fifty year old Moroccan courtyard house. We are a true Moroccan home-from-home.

The Space

Just a minute’s stroll from the bustling Jemaa El Fna, l’Orientale is a haven of peace and tranquillity, where we aim to delight all your senses. We place great importance on good traditional Moroccan cooking, comfortable beds and the warmest of welcomes, all within a traditional and elegant environment.

This listing is for a private room with a double bed and the option of adding a single bed if needed. There is an en-suite bathroom with a shower and towels are included.

Whether your stay is just overnight or for a week or longer, we hope you will feel, as many of our guests do, that you have found a new home in Marrakech to which you will want to return.

Guest Access

Other than the room itself, we have a good selection of areas throughout the riad where you can relax, slumber with a book and sip mint tea. Downstairs we have two traditional salons, one with a large fireplace which we use for cold winter evenings. The courtyard itself is available for using at all times of the day.

On the top floor, we have a glorious sun terrace which is broken into separate areas and levels to maximise privacy. There is a sunshade for those who chose not to sit directly in the sun as well as four sunbeds on the very top terrace where you can spend an afternoon gently tanning!

Interaction with Guests

Our manager Latifa will be present daily to welcome guests and to ensure you have everything you need. We also have a night man who looks after the house and guests from early evening through to the morning, in addition to our excellent team of cooks and cleaners.

Getting Around

Taxis to and from the airport can be arranged and we can assist you with reliable car and minibus hire, either self-drive or with a driver.

Parking nearby is possible, although with the small streets of the medina its not possible to drive to the riad. It is 4-5 mins walk from the nearest car park.

If you're arriving under your own steam, just let us know when you're due to arrive and we can meet you at the main square and show you the way back to the riad and help you with your bags.

Other Things to Note

Our authentic Moroccan breakfasts are included in the cost of your stay. In addition lunch and dinner can be provided on request. Aziz will serve your dinner by candle-light in the courtyard, or in winter, beside a cedar log fire in the Salon.

Our food is all home cooked, with a great emphasis on quality local ingredients which are all freshly bought daily.

In addition to keeping your room clean and tidy, our staff are happy to take care of your personal laundry on request.

There is free Wi-Fi access throughout the Riad, for those who just cannot bear to be out of touch with the world!

Latifa will be happy to suggest interesting trips and help you to make any necessary arrangements.

House Rules

We're really not a place that has a "set of rules" - we aim to be a home from home, not a strict hotel. However, we obviously expect our guests to be considerate of others and to not make too much noise if leaving for a 5am flight from the airport!
