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
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
Lovely traditional room
Roof terrace fabulous watching the sunset and storks flying over listening to the call to prayer - facinating.
Expect traditional comfort and warm genuine hospitality
Stayed here for one night before our 5 day tour. Then 2 nights when we came back.
We got there the first night very late. Had nothing to eat and didn't want to walk back to the square to get anything so Mohamed went and fetched us a sandwich and some french fries which we appreciated very much.
The last 200mtrs to the Riad is down a dark narrow street which we thought was a bit intimidating on first arrival in the dark. It is well situated for the main square in the old town. Very difficult to find so best find a porter on arrival.
When you walk through the door it is such a supprise. Very nice old building.
The staff are very helpfull. Mohamed cant speak very good English but he always tries hard with a smile.
Breakfast was nothing special but ample.
We would defionately stay again if we came back to this area.
After lugging our (over-packed) backpacks across Jeema el-Fna in the mid-afternoon heat, we were relieved to find that the riad was located just off one of the main through-streets in the medina. Getting lost in the souks is an obligatory part of any trip to Marrakech, but knowing where we were staying was a reassurance.
When the heat, haggling and shouts of “just look” reached critical point, the riad was a tranquil piece of paradise where we could enjoy a mint tea in the court-yard or sunbathe on the terrace.
Booked through Secret Escapes and had no difficulty with the booking or check-in.
The room was comfortable, clean and big enough for two people with luggage.
