About This Listing
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.
The riad team has been very helpful during our stay. The place is very sweet and warm for enjoying time in Marrakech. Everything is perfect. The breakfasts on the terrace is fabulous. The massage set is great! Thank you all for providing us a great memory.
Thank you for your lovely comments and we are thrilled that we contributed to creating great memories of Marrakech for you.

We really enjoyed staying in the beautiful Riad , which was is in a convenient location.
The hosts were incredibly helpful and talked us through the main sites of Marrakech.
Absolutely loved staying in riad o2 - really can't fault the experience! We were picked up from the airport and taken to the riad by our friendly driver. On arrival we were given orange juice and snacks. We stayed in the Sahara room for 3 nights. It is beautifully decorated and the aircon kept us cool at night (essential for Marrakech heat!). It is great place to chill out in the day, in the courtyard or on the terrace. I would also recommend getting a hamman and massage and make sure you have dinner on the roof top as well one night! The staff were all so friendly and helped us with all our questions (there were many!). A highlight though was the dessert trip they organised for us. I would highly recommend asking about this. We liked the riad so much we came
Back for another night half way through our Morocco trip and the Orange room we stayed in was equally cool - we couldn't decide which one we liked best! If you are in any doubt about staying here - don't be! Fantastic experience!
We are all delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and you were a pleasure to host and have as a guest..we would welcome you back any time and remember you get a loyalty discount of 15% on your next stay. The orange room which is also an appropriate name we call the Chewing-Gum room!
Best wishes and many thanks again for your lovely comments,
The Riad O² team

Fantastic riad, really enjoyed our 4 night stay there and were made to feel very welcome. Rooftop terrace was even nicer than pictured. Helpful and attentive staff, who arranged a taxi to and from the airport to make it effortless on our part, along with dinner on the first night which was a delicious chicken tajine. Good location, close to restaurants and shops.
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!
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!

About the Host, Marie&Hugues
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.
