Marrakech is a city of maze-like markets, exotic aromas and otherworldly landscapes, with richly diverse architecture, cuisine and culture that reflect its vibrant history. There are countless ways to explore this magical destination, from riding horses or ATVs across the dunes to bargain-hunting for souvenirs and specialty items in the bazaar. There’s also the Ville Nouvelle, the modern side of Marrakech, with chic cafés and hip nightclubs, providing a stark contrast to the ancient Medina and proving that this lively desert oasis is ever evolving.
Amid all this magic, Riad Caesar still manages to stand out. A former 19th-century sultan’s mansion, today, it offers just five wonderfully unique rooms built around a traditional inner courtyard. You’ll be immersed in Moroccan culture, staying in an abode graced by archways, lush vegetation and gurgling fountains. You’ll also be close to Marrakech’s famous Medina – a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with shops, restaurants, and the buzz of daily life. Gaze at the Atlas Mountains from the rooftop garden terrace, take a dip in the refreshing splash pool, savor a traditional Moroccan meal, and treat your inner sultan to a bit of well-deserved R&R.
Each Double room at Riad Caesar features its own unique color palette and decor, beautifully channeling Marrakech’s lively, vibrant style with richly woven rugs, tiled floors and hand-carved furniture. Each air-conditioned room also features a 32-inch satellite TV, a safe and a bathroom with a shower and a bidet.
The intimate dining room offers a truly authentic experience in every sense of the word, with an elegant chandelier, a hand-carved table and chairs, silk curtains and sumptuous red, orange and pink fabrics adorning the walls. You’ll enjoy tantalizing Moroccan specialties, like couscous, tagine and bestilla, while at breakfast, you’ll find freshly baked breads and sweets. There are dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance, as well.
Riad Caesar’s convenient location, near the city’s famous Medina, makes it the perfect home base during your stay in Marrakech. The Medina’s about 10 minutes away on foot, with plenty of restaurants, souks, architectural sites and parks along the way to keep you busy. The hotel can also arrange day trips for hiking, horseback riding, golf and 4WD desert tours.
How to Get There
Having stayed at 5 star hotels downwards a few nights at a Moroccan Road may come as a shock. This is definitely 2 star and the room we asked for and booked was not available. Breakfast was adequate but the Morrocan cuisine as shown on the website failed to materialise. Very basic but you get what you pay for. Better off paying for a full function hotel unless you are young and hardy and prepared to walk through streets of stalls and dodging motorbikes, bicycles and carts
Just spent three nights in this lovely Riad. Nezha thankfully arranged airport pick up for us 15 euro and a man with a cart met us at the square and took our luggage to the Riad otherwise we would never have found it at night. On arrival Mohammed made us some lovely mint tea. The room was very cosy and we had a very nice breakfast. I recommend anyone who wants to take in all the sights Marrakech has to offer to stay here as it is within walking distance to everything. Thank you so much Nezha and Mohammed.

I did some research and wanted to find a road that met the below requirements:
1. Positive excellent reviews
2. In or near Medina
3. Below 90$
This riad met and surpassed my expectations. We stayed on 2nd floor so noise was no issue. The host and Nizza were great. Breakfast was simple but delicious and changed each day. Beautiful riad . I recommend using their driver to pick you up with Porter to take you to riad as it is a little difficult to find upon arrival . We used google map but would be alot easier if they did it for you as you need to cross the square with your luggage .
Bravo Riad Caesar!!
we spent one night in this hotel. the breakfast was very lovely! typical french croissant and baguette 😍😍 the central is very close from this hotel but still so quiet place. we really enjoyed our time in here
We booked with Secret Escapes and the whole process was simple and straightforward. If you are travelling on the early flight from Gatwick and use this as the first full day in Marrakech as you land early, please dont . It took us about 3 hours to get through ques for airport checks when we landed - this is normal so they said.
i had emailed and asked for a taxi to pick up at the airport which had been confirmed but no one came .( However having then stayed at Riad Caesar and the fact they are great hosts, i can only see this as a mis communicaton not a negative. ) We got a taxi from the very helpful drivers outside the airport and if anyone is nervous about this , dont be - our experience was very good.
We were met in the sqaure with a man with a barrow which was the beginning of an amazing adventure experiencing staying at a Riad in the Medina. A true cultural experience. The square itself was crazy busy and we weaved our way through with the barrow, down narrow streets of sellers , mopeds, donkeys, carts then suddenly we arrived at a large door in a wall - it was opened and we stepped into the wonderful peace of the Riad - a central pool looking up into the Marrakech sky through balconied rooms - we were taken aback. The door shut and the mayhem was gone. You could step back out easily and the ally led straight into the Souks and square - brilliant.
Nezha and Mohammed could not do enough for us - they are wonderful warm and helpful people with whom we enjoyed staying. Mohammed helped us so much escorting us out into the streets and making sure we were safe and happy. Thank you both.
Simple breakfast of fresh breads juice and pancakes
