The Space

Riad Ethnique offers absolute privacy and peace of a completely exclusive use riad, without giving up who will take care of you and set up for you a wonderful breakfast to be enjoyed on the terrace, or for a typical Moroccan dinner by candlelight. Someone will also take care of daily cleaning of the house and will be always available to take you to the grocery store, if you wish or he will do it for you. All this will be your choice.
This riad, which has been completely and accurately restored, boasts more than 100 years of history, and gives you the possibility to enjoy the best and picturesque life of the Medina by discovering it from the inside.

  • Beautiful Riad in a great area close to all.
    Aziz the caretaker and Allal our driver were so accommodating and genuinely nice all the time. They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Wifi worked great and roof top terrace was lovely. Fresh squeezed juice for breakfast too!! Thank you!!

  • Riad Ethnique was a wonderful escape from the frantic world outside. Great position as we felt we were out of the tourist trap but close to the Museums, souk and had taxis two minutes away. Beautifully furnished and very relaxing with a roof terrace if we'd had time to venture up there. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

  • Thanks to Cristina and Paolo for the beautiful raid, and also to Aziz for all his help during our stay.
    The Riad was very beautiful, authentic features with luxurious feel and well equipt for self catering and relaxing with music/dvds/tv. We were only two people but even filled I think the size of the riad is suitable when 6-8 people. The location is great as walking south towards jemaa el fna (the square) can take you through the souks, or around it, if you want a quieter route. Its also near some simple food shops, and also Dar Moha restaurant (we didnt go but read good things) and Hammam de la Rose. I do recommend Cafe Arabe which is also a short walk for lunch, dinner and drinks.
    Aziz was very helpful and good for advice and local tips, I found the hosts very helpful also in arranging some additional requests I had.
    Would return ourselves and recommend to others visiting Marrakech.

  • We had a great stay at the Riad. It was a little difficult to find in the evening, but don't let that steer you away. Aziz was a very friendly man. I recommend staying here for other airbnb guests.

  • In a word - stunning.
    I cant rate Paolo & Cristina's place any higher.
    For the price its absolutely vast.
    Spread over 4 floors (if you include the balcony on the very top floor) we virtually had a floor each and each was so beautifully put together it was an absolute pleasure to stay.
    Aziz was very helpful, made wonderful breakfasts and gave us pertinent information on where to go, when and how to get there.
    Would most definitely book again.
    Top marks!!!

  • The Riad Etnique is a beautiful place to stay and enjoy in Marrakech. The building is traditional, with lovely furniture, very comfortable. The rooms are large, comfortable beds and you can enjoy the sun at the terrace. I recommend it.
    Cristina and Paolo were very gentle and kind with us.
    Aziz is great - it's perfect to wake up with a delicious breakfast to begin the day.

  • Location really nice.
    The communication with the owners was perfect and immediate. The area of ​​town where you will find the riad is not the best but the house is really quiet.
    The choice is to be recommended to all!

  • We had a great stay. The riad was just like the pictures. Beautiful and spacious and not too far from everything. When u come back to marakech I will definitely stay here again. Thank you for everything.
