The colorful city of Marrakesh with its charming inhabitants and this magnificent Riad will enchant you. When you rent our Riad, you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just you and your family and friends.
When you contact us, please let us know a little bit about yourself so that we won't be feeling like we are going to welcome a total stranger, thank you!
LOCATION: The riad is centrally located between two famous ancient palaces -- the «Palais Bahia» and the «Palais Badii» -- in one of the most authentic areas of the Medina (old city) of Marrakesh. The famous «Jemaa El Fna» Square is only five minutes away and a guarded car park, where you can easily get a taxi to discover Marrakesh and its surroundings, is located close by.
RENT: The daily price is 160€ for the entire house for up to 8 persons. Each additional persons above 8 will be charged an additional 20€ per night. When you rent this riad you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just you and your family and friends.
THE HOUSE: The riad dates back to the 17th century. It was entirely renovated in 2011 with traditional Moroccan construction techniques. Examples of Moroccan handicraft, such as tadelakt (Moroccan wall painting technique with colors), sculpted plaster and wooden ceilings are found in every room. Lamps, furniture, mirrors, bedspreads, curtains, etc. found in the riad have all been crafted by Moroccan artisans, some of them living next door.
ROOMS: The total surface of the house is about 400m2 and it can comfortably accommodate 12 persons. It includes three bedrooms, two large suites, and a separate apartment on the roof terrace. Each bedroom and suite has its own bathroom and is equipped with reversible air-conditioning. The dining room, a large kitchen, a Moroccan chill out area (bouh) and two bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Two large suites and a large bedroom are on the first floor, while the large roof terrace and the apartment are on the top floor.
LIVING OUTDOOR: a large patio with two fountains and four orange trees occupies the ground floor. On the first floor, there is a chill out balcony with a view on the patio. On the top floor, the large roof terrace of about 200m2 is the best place to enjoy the sunshine during the day and the deliciously breezy evenings of Marrakesh. This is a place for relaxation and meditation, where you can watch dozens of storks nesting on the nearby walls of the «Palais Badii». All plants found on the terrace and in the patio are typical of Morocco. The house is the home of bougainvillea, hibiscus, cactuses, orange trees, laurels and palms trees.
STAFF AND SERVICES: Bed sheets, towels and usual amenities such as hairdryers are provided in each bedroom. There is a French-speaking housekeeper who also understands and speaks a little English. He has a separated bedroom in the house and is available any time during your stay to assist you and make sure you are enjoying your vacation. A French-speaking caretaker comes in every day to clean the main areas and, if you wish, can also make the rooms. Meals (typical Moroccan dishes) can be ordered for an additional fee if you want to eat at home. Both caretakers are extremely reliable people, who have been taking good care of the house for a long time.

We have had a fantastic 5-days stay at RiadLAkLAk and recommend it highly to anyone.
We were 13 Norwegians - 7 children and 6 grownups who all had our little private worlds in this spacious and lovely house. All the rooms are unique and complete with all you need to spend time and enjoy.
Ahmed and Fatima are lovely hosts and warm generous people who helped organize trips and activities and gave good advise about Marrakech. We were especially grateful for their lovely contact with our children. We recommend to have breakfast served on the roof like we did.
Staying at RiadLakLAk has been a truly rich, luxurious and inspiring experience. Marrakech is mysterious and fantastic.
We would love to go back.
Wir waren zu fünft in diesem Riad und verbrachten dort fünf Tage. Das Platzangebot war wie man sich vorstellen kann mehr als ausreichend, mit acht bis zehn Personen kann man in diesem wunderschönen Haus meiner Ansicht nach sehr entspannt wohnen. Das Riad ist bis ins letzte Detail liebevoll und aufwändig gestaltet und wird von Ahmet der guten Seele des Hauses gehegt und gepflegt. Direkt im Eingangsbereich finden sich Bilder vom Anfang des Riads und es scheint unglaublich was hier aus einer Ruine geschaffen wurde. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und allesamt auf ihre weise einzigartig. Einzig die Abwesenheit von Türen in die Bäder ist ein wenig gewöhnungsbedürftig- aber auch dies stellt kein besonderes Problem dar.
Ein besonderer Dank geht an Ahmet und Fatima, ohne diese beiden Personen wäre unser Aufenthalt nicht das selbe gewesen. Egal ob es um das Frühstück, kleine Informationen oder die Hilfe beim organisieren von Ausflügen oder Transfers ging, es wurde immer schnell und sehr kompetent geholfen.
Ein Abendessen im Riad sollte sich niemand entgehen lassen, die Qualität und der Geschmack der gereichten Gerichte war ausgezeichnet. Im Januar waren die Nächte natürlich ein bisschen frisch, aber es stehen genug Heizmöglichkeiten zur Verfügung, der Innenhof ist nach oben bedeckt, so dass man selbst in kühlen Nächten hier wunderbar seine Zeit verbringen kann. Sobald die Sonne herauskommt, ist die wunderschöne Dachterrasse der perfekte Ort um sich ein wenig vom Trubel und der Hektik der Medina zu erholen.
Die Lage des Riad ist sehr gut, sehr zentral und in ca. zehn Gehminuten vom Djemaa el Fan gelegen, die Nachbarschaft ist ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig- aber in kleinster Art und Weise gefährlich- man lebt eben mitten in der Medina mit ihren kleinen verwinkelten Gassen usw...
Ich würde ohne jegliches Zögern dieses Riad an jeden weiterempfehlen der diese faszinierende Metropole für sich entdecken möchte. Wir haben uns unglaublich wohl gefühlt und möchten an dieser Stelle allen beteiligten danken- wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit im Riad Lak Lak.
Ottima scelta! 14 posti letto, struttura molto curata. Colazione abbondante, personale sempre presente, disponibile, cortese. Assolutamente consigliato!
Riad Laklak is a beautiful and well presented house. The bedrooms are wonderful and the communal are areas are great. The rooftop terrace is private and good for catching some sun, unfortunately November weather was too cold for night time star gazing. The photos are fab but the reality is impressive.
It is central to the royal palaces, souks and restaurants and not too far to the main square and beyond. I would strongly recommend trips to the sea and the mountains if you have time.
Ahmed and his two lady helpers were brilliant. They provided excellent and varied breakfasts and some dinners suitable vegetarians and non-veggies alike. His advice, directions and local knowledge proved him to be an excellent host.
We had the most amazing holiday at Riad Lak Lak. It is without a doubt the most beautiful, relaxing and enchanting place we've stayed. We went as a group of 8 and all of us were blown away by it beauty (the pictures don't do it justice). We all had huge rooms and suites (big enough to be apartments), with the comfiest beds and gorgeous en suite bathrooms (which had fresh towels every day, and rose petals when we arrived).
Aleks was incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble! He provided lots of really helpful information for us and organised our airport pick up and a delicious dinner on our arrival.
Ahmed and Fatima (the housekeepers) need a special mention. The holiday wouldn't have been the same without them! Fatima made the most incredible dinner and breakfast for us, and was a constant helping hand and around the house, nothing was too much trouble! Ahmed was fantastic, he helped us all through our stay, whether it was organising trips, driver, information, and just being a lovely helpful person to have around! They were both incredibly generous and went above and beyond to help us have a wonderful stay. Even giving my girlfriend a present on her birthday. Thank you both for making our holiday so relaxing!
I would highly recommend staying here, and will definitely like to return. It's in a great location right in the medina, within easy walking distance of the square and souks. Plus has lots of nice restaurants and bars near by. Most of all it's an oasis of tranquility in amongst the hustle and bustle of the Medina!
We had an amazing stay at Riad LakLak. The place is just as magical as it looks from the pictures, being a hidden away gem in the old Jewish quarters. The place is so very pleasant, nice, clean, and quiet, and we were so well looked after by Ahmed and Nadia, that we could not have asked for anything more. It was a perfect stay.
We were seven people staying in the Riad, sleeping one in all but one of the rooms, but the rooms are really very spacious, and there would be more than enough place for a couple to stay in each of the rooms; one of the rooms also had an additional large bed in a separate part of the suit, together with an additional separate living room! That room would have been perfect for a family with smaller children.
Overall, we had a most pleasant stay, and I would certainly recommend this place to anyone; I, for one, know for sure where I will stay next time I am in Marrakesh!
Très beau Riad , l'accueil est vraiment top, Ahmed (concierge) est très serviable.
Idéal pour passer un séjour inoubliable a Marrakech !
Beaucoup plus intéressant et beaucoup plus agréable qu'un hôtel , les chambres sont spacieuse avec leurs salle de bain, la terrasse est au top.
Et tout ça , a proximité des endroits a visiter (place jemaa El Fna) et des bons resto( quartier hivernage
Le Ryad Lak Lak est un bijou au milieu d'un quartier en pleine restauration. Il porte bien son nom, nous avons vu plusieurs cigognes de la terrasse (LakLak veut dire cigogne), La restauration du Ryad a été faite avec beaucoup de goût en préservant l'esprit du lieu et y ajoutant tout le confort moderne. Propreté impecable, literie de qualité. L'accueil chaleureux et prévenant d'Ahmed nous a comblés. Nous étions trois couples avec 2 adolescentes et nos amis, qui n'étaient jamais venus au Maroc, y reviendront sûrement. La présence discrète mais toujours disponible d'Ahmed était parfaite.
Séjour d'exception grâce notamment à un Riad d'exception. Excellent rapport qualité/prix ! Spacieux, lumineux, calme, très agréable et parfaitement entretenu. Le riad est situé tout prêt de la Medina, à 5 min de la place Jemaa El-Fna. L'accueil réservé par Ahmed a été particulièrement appréciable : très disponible et accueillant tout en restant discret. Ses conseils ont été précieux.
One week spent at Riad LakLak just before Xmas helped us really relax and enjoy the city before the .. mass of tourism arrived. The house is very beautiful, recently restaured, confortable, wide spaces, each room with its own batroom, large convenient kitchen perfectly appointed with dishes, pans, glasses , a grand gas cooking stove with a large oven (much appreciated by one of the party who loves to cook). The location is perfect, minutes walking from the city's heart in the jewish sector Our special thanks go to Ahmed who was essential to our well being. A protective angel, always present and helpful, rescue from the souk's labyrinth guaranteed at all hours of the day!!, any request fulfilled in seconds, all informations given with a smile. Fatima, the other little angel, rarely seen but always efficient, fixing the house and our rooms every day. We met Aleks, the owner, very welcoming and..simpatico. Nights were a bit cold and although heating is provided in the rooms the dining area never wamred up to a confortable degree. But in summer the riad must be an oasis!! We strongly recommend a stay and would definetly return there in the future
