The space

Riad Petit Palais de Marrakesh is a small private rental home in the Medina of Marrakesh. It is located in a calm area only a five-minute walk away from the famous Jemaa El Fna square. It has two bedrooms which sleep four persons. It has been renovated in 2012 with traditional construction methods.

LOCATION: The riad is centrally located in the old town of Marrakesh. The famous «Jemaa El Fna» Square is only a five minutes’ walk away. There you can easily get a taxi to discover Marrakesh and its surroundings. You will enjoy walking to the Jemaa el Fna square to buy fresh orange juice from the street stalls, and then walk back past an array of street vendors selling pastries and other local delights to enjoy it on your private roof terrace.

RENT: The rental price includes the exclusive use of the entire house and cleaning upon your departure. We provide bed sheets, towels and usual amenities such as hairdryers. There is a French/English-speaking caretaker. She is available any time during your stay to assist you and make sure you are enjoying your vacation.

PRIVACY: When you rent with us you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just you and your family and friends.

ARRIVAL BY CAR: The house is located in the old town of Marrakesh and there is no direct access by car. After booking, I will send you information about a guarded parking nearby.

ARRIVAL BY PLANE/TRAIN/BUS: We can pick you up at the airport, the train station, or the bus station. A transfer costs 15€ for or up to 7 persons. Ask for the price if you are more than 7 persons.

INTERNET ACCESS: Free Internet access through a Wi-Fi connection is available.

THE HOUSE: The riad was recently renovated 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 living space is about 100m2 and it can comfortably accommodate four persons in its two bedrooms. It is equipped with reversible air-conditioning. There is a common bathroom with a bathtub. The kitchen, a Moroccan chill out area, and one bedroom are located on the ground floor. The second bedroom and the bathroom are on the first floor.

LIVING OUTDOOR: A patio with a fountain and a large palm tree occupies the ground floor. On the first floor, there is a chill out balcony with a view on the patio. On the top floor, a roof terrace of about 40m2 is the best place to enjoy the sunshine during the day and the deliciously breezy evenings of Marrakesh.

MEALS: Dinner and breakfast (typical Moroccan dishes) can be ordered and enjoyed in a nearby Riad which we are associated to.

DAY TRIPS: We know many good drivers that can be rented for a day trip. Currently, the daily rental price for a car with driver is 130€. The car can fit up to 7 persons. Please ask us for a quote. Booking our transfer from the airport is a good way to get to know the driver and the vehicle in case you plan such a trip and want it to be arranged by us.

SMOKING: Smoking is allowed on the roof terrace and in the patio.

VISITORS: No local visitors are allowed entry to the Riad during your stay. This restriction is necessary because of the Moroccan legislation.

This riad was perfect for our week exploring Marrakesh! Extremely central and within walking distance of all the main souks, with taxi stops just a 5 min walk away if you want to head any further! The raid was absolutely gorgeous and extremely comfortable. It was great to have the freedom of the whole riad to ourselves, meaning we could cook using bits and pieces we picked up fresh from the markets and we could enjoy our dinner up on our own roof terrace if we were too tired to head out to any of the nearby restaurants. Amal was an incredible in country host and was always on hand if we had any questions. She also arranged our trip to the Atlas Mountains for a great price. We booked breakfast and dinner for our first day in the riad which was great value, great food and a good way to get settled in. We absolutely loved our stay and would love to come back!

Secluded, peaceful, spacious. Breakfast laid out for you at the larger riad 3 min walk away. Able to eat on roof terrace. Alma/Aleks recommend good restaurants. Alma will find you anything you need. Research your own hammam as suggested one although fine is slightly touristy. Would definitely return, a great place for both travellers and couples

Riad Petit Palais is a little palace indeed. We loved that we had a secluded little Riad with our own privacy. It is located very close to the Djema El Fna main square yet far enough away to be a in a quiet street. Amal is a wonderful hostess acting for the Riad who was very helpful in arranging anything we needed. Breakfast at the close by Riad was excellent and we can highly recommend taking it as other breakfast options will be less good and more expensive. We can also highly recommend the Hammam Rosa Bonheur which is not far away for their excellent service. The transfer from and to the airport were well organised and our trip to the Ourika valley to visit the waterfalls was unforgettable! We can recommend this lovely private little place for your stay in Marrakech!

I have been in love with Marrakech, its inhabitants and Moroccan artwork for many years. The first time I was struck by the beauty of Morocco was when, after hitchhiking from Switzerland, I arrived in Tangier in 1979.
I offer for rent Swiss owned private vacation houses in the heart of the Medina of Marrakesh. With me, you always book the entire house. There will be no other guests, just your family and friends!

Es gibt keine anderen Gäste ausser Ihre Familie und Ihre Freunde! Alle Riads sind im Besitz von Schweizer Privatpersonen und wurden sorgfälltig mit traditionellen Methoden renoviert und sind mit modernstem Komfort ausgestattet.
