Quiet and tranquil, this Touareg themed bedroom has a double bed or 2 single beds, ensuite shower room. The décor is tradition meets design. One extra person can be accommodated in the room.
A beautiful, quiet room, the Sable room will remind you of the Sahara desert and the Touaregs. It features lovely curves and arches and a bathroom with shower in traditional tadelakt.
The Sable room is one of 6 bedrooms surrounding a central open patio in a beautiful and peaceful riad.
A riad is a traditional Moroccan house with trees and a fountain in a central courtyard. You will be amazed at the architectural white arches all around the patio, contrasting with the lush banana trees and cacti. Our riad has been renovated to offer superb comfort amid stunning decor, a fusion of design and tradition.
You will love relaxing in the jacuzzi-pool, the hammam, and on the roof terrace.
We will welcome you with a mint tea and Moroccan pastries.
Our driver is available to pick you up at the airport. Rachida, our in-house cook, prepares really good locally sourced fresh traditional Moroccan meals.
All our rooms are air-conditioned / heated with free wi-fi.
Guests have access to the jacuzzi, hammam, central courtyard and rooftop terrace.
Our riad is located in the Medina or old quarter of Marrakech, in a quiet pedestrian area but close to vibrant streets, filled with shops and workshops, all the way to the souks, palaces and the famous Djema El Fnaa square.
There is a taxi rank about 5 minutes walk from the riad.
Other Things to Note
There is a local tourism tax of 8Dh and a tourist promotion tax of 15Dh payable per guest per night at the property for all guests over the age of 12. This 23Dh charge per night per person is about €2.30
We would like to remind you that Morocco is a Muslim country, therefore as a mark of respect for its inhabitants it is highly recommended to avoid short dresses and shorts, as well as bare belly, low-cut tops, or anything too revealing (especially in the old city).
Also it is very inappropriate to eat or smoke in the street in the daytime during Ramadan (starting 28 June 2014 for 1 month)
As Morocco is a Muslim country there are certain rules we have to strictly adhere to and apply.
No unmarried Moroccan women co-habiting or present in riad as unregistered guests.
The same applies to Moroccan men who are not registered guests in the riad.
We loved our stay at the riad o2. The whole place was beautiful and peaceful. We especially loved the rooftop terrace. Breakfast was the best we had during our stay in Morocco and the friendly staff made it more of a pleasure. There was a slight mix up with beds on the first evening as we had booked for three but the room was only prepared for two. However this was dealt with by the next day. It was also easy to arrange airport pick ups and a day trip to the atlas mountains through the riad and we would recommend. We will come back here if we return to Morocco again!
Riad Guesthouse: indeed a bit hard to find, but if you find it the salutation was very kind and helpfull!
The breakfast on the roofterrace was memorabel and we asked the staff to lit the fire which they deed immediately.
My friend and I had a great time at Riad O2. We LOVED our stay in the Sahara Sable room; the decor was beautiful and the bathroom charming! The rooftop is amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed eating our home-cooked dinner up there in lantern light! I highly recommend having Rashida cook up some tagines - some of the best beef I've ever had. I would recommend staying here. It is a bit challenging to find in the maze of Marrakech's streets, but it's definitely worth getting lost for!
This place is straight out of an Anthropologie catalog, but real. The level of detail put into every corner of the beautiful riad was impressive. Communication with the hosts before our trip was easy and helpful.
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with something special for his birthday, and they kindly arranged a beautiful homemade chocolate cake and a local musician to celebrate. I have nothing negative to say about our experience here-- it was perfect!
We loved staying at Riad O2. The room, courtyard and terrace were beautifully presented. Charming, authentic, cool, calming with white walls and beautiful traditional details. It was quiet and peaceful, a great escape from the busy streets of Marrakech. We loved relaxing in some quiet corner of the riad or up on the beautiful roof terrace. The food Rachida prepared was excellent and we will miss our sunshine breakfast on the roof top! A great find and one we would definitely return to. It is a little off the beat and track but this didn't bother us one bit and we managed to find our way pretty easily after it was explained to us. The owners of the Riad were exceptionally helpful before we arrived, I had a million and one questions and they took the time to patiently answer them all and helped us book some trips - so thank you!
Thank you for your kind comments.We hope you and your boyfriend enjoyed your stay and especially your excursion for his birthday.
At the moment we are updating the plumbing in some parts of the Riad and this unfortunately could have caused the unpleasant smell, our apologies to you both.

Cadre parfait! À 10 minutes à pied de la place Jjemaa el fna, Riad très bien entretenu, chambre impeccable, très bon petit dej servi tout les matins, personnel souriant, bref un séjour parfait!
Loved this place. Beautiful, quiet, friendly staff, excellent food (we can vouch for the lemon chicken tagine, it's to die for), and the owners were very flexible, making last minute changes for us. Lots of space on the terrace to hang out, and you don't feel crowded with the other guests (although granted, only 3 of the 6 rooms were occupied while we were there). Breakfast was delicious, and varied a bit each morning, which was nice. We spent 5 nights there, and are now going to spend 4 more (that's the last minute change we added). Great value for your money! We've only stayed in one other riad in Marrakesh, but the O2 is easily our favorite of the two.

We are a French couple who fell in love with Morocco years ago.
We then decided to buy a place in Marrakech. After a long period of renovation work, combining modern comfort, traditional material and our taste for design, we finally created our beautiful riad.
We love going to the desert, sleeping in berber tents and listening to Touaregs playing drums and singing.
We also enjoy meeting people and telling them about our favourite places to see and visit.
