The space

Travel light we provide all the principal including linens: towels, bed sheets; baby bed, etc. but two straw hats for the sun, 3 umbrellas in case but do not expect to use it even laughs !! books in the library, board games, etc.
The riad "The 16" has a privileged location in the heart of three neighborhoods Dar el Bacha, Riad Bab Doukkala and Larouss in the heart of the authentic Medina, two minutes walk from the souks of the antique dealers, which is the most beautiful street the souk with all the "chic" shops, eight minutes walk from Jemma El Fna square, if we do not stop along the way which is very difficult as he laughs there's great things to see and taste !!
This area is highly secure and easy to access which is not the case for all riads in Marrakech. Our riad gives in a little derb very quiet and very well lit at night with a direct entrance from the street Dar el Bacha (where you can make you stop taxi or horse-drawn carriage to 10 meters away from the Riad. We are located only a hundred meters from the Palace "Dar El Bacha" with his royal guard 24/24 h.
The riad is located near all the major tourist attractions and the heart of the city of Marrakech close to the place and most of our tenants say do just walk (see comments).
The main photo of the site is the living room door located on the terrace. The front door of the riad is the blue door with the golden 16 on the door.
By renting our riad you get an excellent FOR MONEY and a location in the TOP! That you were renting the whole riad exclusively, 2 or 8 people, the price is still the same !!! We are in the most affordable prices in Marrakech especially in this area which is in my opinion one of the finest.
This place is particularly suitable for locations with friends, family, girlfriends or friends. It is possible to sleep 6 or 8 in mid-season but the ideal is to be a maximum of 3 couples with possibly two children ... it's much more comfortable !!!
Its architecture with arches and tiles have seduced us, the view is magnificent. You can see the neighboring palace gardens, the Atlas Mountains and Koutoubia. It is both an elegant mixture of oriental architecture with a relaxing atmosphere cozy and intimate with traditional furnishings, and comfortable design.
For foodies, you are just steps from the famous restaurant Dar Moha El Madina.
Everything is at hand or feet rather: extraordinary small local markets will be missed because it is a real pleasure to choose fruit and vegetables (cart available for shopping in the kitchen), bakery , grocery, fish, steam, souks, dairy for good squeezed juices, pastries, pharmacy, small traditional restaurants, craft center, park, bus station etc.
Relax in the two rooms of the Moroccan Riad with the wall fountain on the sun terrace or on the patio (which is housed or open as you feel like it).
We put a few board games for family fun. Also at your disposal some books (English, French), CDs for listening to music and some dvd ...
You will find a table for delicious gourmet moments in the patio and terrace with pergola or a drink on the terrace watching the sunset over the gardens of the palace of the King and the Koutoubia.
A small kitchen will welcome you with its fridge, and barbecue for dinners under the latticework with family or friends.
Always on the terrace, semi-open square Moroccan lounge for tea or for a shaded nap and dreams of ... Oriental princess or prince, of course ...
Winter lasts shortly in Marrakech (December and January in general) but it can be very cold especially at night. you should know that even if riad tarpaulin (including rain) lets cold air so the patio is not heated (the day it's nice anyway).
The three bedrooms are very well heated and air conditioned as they are equipped with air conditioning. You have 6 additional heating: 1 gas heating, electric radiators 3 large oil bath, and there's radiant heaters in both bathrooms, therefore a priori sufficient to heat very well except in the riad regarding the patio but I think if it is very chilly it is best not to rent a riad in winter. We even add a patio heater for the patio (you may need to recharge the gas cylinder by the keeper for a cost of 5 €).
A beautiful entrance, bathroom with toilet (this is the second bathroom but there is no bathroom option on the site.
A well equipped kitchen you will find microwave, pressure cooker, toaster, programmable coffee maker for morning tea, tea (s) 1 down, 1 terrace, electric press-orange, blender, tagines, thermos coffee and one for tea, champagne bucket, flutes etc. in order to live in Morocco but also all the necessary equipment for comfort and modernity.
Marrakchia the room in white and red tones with its double bed and its well-stocked library. A orientalo-Indian atmosphere ..
A comfortable Moroccan lounge with fireplace, flat screen TV (two or three French channels), DVD, broadband internet, which can serve two additional individual sleeps.
At 1: Sultana Room in shades of brown, gold and silver chocolate is the master bedroom with a double bed, wall heating, reversible air conditioning: warm in winter and cool in summer, beautiful cupboards moucharabieh . A thousand atmosphere and oriental night ...
The Mogador room 1: in different shades of blue with its double bed, its large wardrobe moucharabieh too. It is in a peaceful atmosphere ..
You have at your disposal plus 2 extra mattresses foam that unfold and which bed for a child or an adult and also a baby cot.
The Bathroom tadelakt yellow with double basins copper, shower, toilet
You will find towels, sheets, blankets, towels available. Upon arrival, the cleaned and prepared you the rooms.
Terrace (main photo on the site):
1 square semi open living room that can potentially serve two additional beds in midseason because neither air conditioning nor heating (inadvisable in winter and in summer), for against it there's the fans. The terrace has a dining area under the pergola, a summer kitchen with a fridge, a traditional barbecue and a panoramic terrace with a beautiful view on the Atlas, the Koutoubia, the surrounding gardens .. . We have full plants for a pleasant environment and we ask you to take self basting during your stay.
There is no opposite which is really nice for sunbathing in the beautiful sun that await you.
Riad is equipped with ADSL (+ wi-fi throughout the house) to make the most of your holiday. It there's also a landline phone where you can be called to be reached easily.
To plan your trip from booking I will send you if you like a book with all our good addresses, our tips, advice ... and if you would like us to help you find the best flights prices do not hesitate to ask us we will be happy to help you !!!
Having many friends and acquaintances in Marrakech, we can offer many services to make your stay more enjoyable .. In Marrakech, nothing is impossible ... organize excursion, stove, musicians, dancers, Babysitting children, housekeeper, scooter rental etc. Rates are very reasonable and negotiate yourselves on site (eg. A person for the household about 150 Dhs (14/15 €) for one day). By cons, we are not responsible for the quality of the services we only put you in touch. It is for you to haggle the price and what you want exactly.
We can also offer you if you want the services of a taxi (private driver) to pick you up at the airport and take you to the riad at a reasonable price. A paid directly. This is a minivan up to 8 people. The price is 200 dhs (18 €) by day price 250 dhs (22 €) in night rate
A word regarding ALCOHOL is frowned upon in the medina. So you can take a few bottles but still very quietly and discard packing them is preferable.
The SEX TOURISM and DRUG TRAFFICKING are strictly forbidden in Morocco therefore punished criminally. In case of unlawful use of Riad 16 you risk being expelled by the police and prosecuted. Our neighbors and our caretaker will do that if they see that you are using the riad for these purposes.

Guest access

You are at the heart of the medina, so you have access to all the souks and the main attractions of Marrakech for visits.

Interaction with guests

It is easy to talk with us by email as we do not live on site. We always try to respond as quickly and effectively as possible to your request. We have our guard who can advise you against by very useful.

Other things to note

The riad is a traditional dwelling in the open. We must therefore accept the inconvenience that this may sometimes result in heavy rains at c.est-say, a little moisture and water in the patio so nothing very serious but it can happen so you have to find out! Of that rain threatens you have curtains and awnings on the terrace to protect in part even if sometimes it's not enough! I repeat: no provocative outfits and no prostitutes or persons not authorized to Moroccan Riad !!! We caution you against theft as may unfortunately occur even though this is very rare. Never leave valuables in the riad if you are not present. Close with padlock all rooms when you are not there and as always closed the door to the terrace that communicates with the riad for it is by this that always worries arrive. So without being paranoid, take a minimum of precautions as everywhere. We accept no liability for flights within the riad.

If you please, you are asked to take care of this house like yours! Especially thank you kindly Please water the plants regularly especially in summer it is essential ..

Never bring someone in that house except authorized tenants. Prostitution and illegal substances are prohibited in Morocco and subject to criminal sanctions. Thank you to be careful not to offend the neighborhood held by or inappropriate behavior, to respect the tranquility of this place.

Thank you not to use the fireplace because it is not very appropriate, so we put inside an electric heating log that has a very pretty effect.

If you are smoking it would be nice of you rather smoke outside on the patio or on the terrace or the corridors but not in the rooms or the lounge.

We always provides spices and essential commodities: oil, sugar etc. therefore ensure you leave that you have replaced what you used or done for the next tenants have what they need on arrival (thank you to them).

Not to feed stray cats as possible if not then we can not get rid of it (I love animals yet!).

Always on the terrace on arrival set the hook for not only the door closes on you and you are stuck there !!!

Pay attention to children on the terrace can be dangerous .. never leave them alone ...



We accept no liability if a flight was to take place at the riad. THERE are no more flights than elsewhere but like everywhere you need to be vigilant and try to avoid people who do not have your standard of living and who might be tempted.

We wish you a wonderful stay at riad in Marrakech

Very nice place. Good location for old city/Medina exploration. The bedrooms were comfortable with A/C despite the sweltering heat. The host was excellent in helping with airport transfers and a brief tour.

In a quiet place, very good housing. We arrived very late at night, they met us and were very nice. There is everything you need. The area is excellent, near the taxi stand. In the house you want to stay alive forever.

Staying at Riad 16 has been a very pleasant experience. As first time visitors to Marrakech we travelled as a large family which included the elderly, teenagers and a child. The Riad was clean and well stocked with essential items such as toiletries, basic food and cleaning products which made the self catering very easy. The environment is calm and restful, which is important for us, and there are several places in the Riad to rest and share time together. Corinne and Fabrice have great taste, and the interior of theRiad is very beautifully put together. Corinne and Fabrice were very helpful in giving us important information which made it easy to find the Riad, which would have been difficult to find initially. Also, the internet connection is excellent, the cooking facilities were good and the Riad is conveniently located near local shops where we bought cooking essentials from, as well as eating places. Also, we found Ossamah, the Wellbnb host to be helpful and prompt with any issues that arose and For example, the gas for the cooker ran out and he came the next day and replaced it. Any other queries or request for local knowledge were dealt with on the same day via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). The Riad is based in an ordinary neighbourhood with families and we often heard children playing outside. For us, this added to the authenticity of our stay and we found our neighbours to be friendly and polite. Minor shortcoming would be that the oven did not work, which we would have used since we are serious self caterers. Overall, I would recommend the Riad 16 for authentic experience of Marrakesh, especially for families and I would most probably book there again with my family if I was to travel again to Marrakesh.

Just steps from the medina. If you come expecting the strong air conditioning and uniformity of a western hotel, you will be disappointed, but if you are looking to experience a beautiful and welcoming home with an authentic feel, this will suit beautifully.

I travelled with two friends to Corinne & Fabrice house. It was perfectly located and well equipped. Go for this traditional riad, you will enjoy this. The description about house is honest and the house is much bigger than the photo posted online. I am leaving just tips for newcomers here. 1. Liad in medina( old town) is hard to be pointed on the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Map(it is normal). So, it would be better to use pick-up service which Mustapha (Guidance) arranges for you, wherever you are coming from, such as train station, Marrakesh airport, even Casablanca (I used it & it was very convenient) 2. Liad is central of Media, I used to walk to all areas of Marrakesh even to Hotel La mamounia (2nd best hotel in Marraketch, enjoy day pass if you are swim and gym lover. Traditional riad does not have them)

Corinne's riad provides an authentic Moroccan experience. It is clean and spacious inside with an amazing roof top terrace to enjoy city views and is close to the market. Mustapha adds to the experience by working with you to plan the excursions that interest you. He is a wealth of information and very enjoyable to talk with. We only wish we could have stayed longer to do all of the things he suggested!
