Riad de l'Orientale

A home from home in Marrakech

The Riad de l’Orientale is a small, family-owned riad, situated in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech. The riad, a two hundred and fifty year old Moroccan courtyard house, has been traditionally restored and has uniquely attractive rooms, all with en suite facilities.

Whether your stay is just overnight or for a week or longer, we hope you will feel that you have found a new home in Marrakech to which you will want to return.



The riad is situated within the Quartier Laksour (Palace Quarter) which in the centre of the medina. We are just moments from the hustle and bustle of the Jemaa El Fna, which is the true heart of the old town.


From the airport

We can happily arrange a driver to meet you at the arrivals area at Marrakech airport. The riad is about 15 - 20 mins from the airport. Alternatively, if you'd like to arrange your own transport, we can meet you at a pre-arranged point and can help you with your bags back to the riad.

From the train station

Its a short taxi ride from the main train station to the medina. Ask your driver to drop you off at the Cafe Argana or Bank Al-Magrib, both of which are on the edge of the Jemaa El Fna and we can come to meet you.
