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
The Riad itself was a quiet and lovely place (nothing special) in the middle of hectic Marrakech. Unfortunately the service wasn’t good at all.
The first night we had to sleep in a 45 degrees room because the air condition didn’t work and obviously nobody checked that in advance. The next day they told us that there is no possibility to chance rooms but after being a bit pissed there was.
The guy who worked there promised to arrange an airport pick up but he didn’t. He didn’t show up in the morning, further more we didn’t get anything for breakfast although we paid for it. That’s of course a mess early in the morning when you are in a rush to get to the airport. That’s why we give only 2 points out of 5.
The lady there was nice and friendly, breakfast was ok.
Lovely Riad in Central Marrakesh. Clean and spacious rooms. Great breakfast and super staff. About 6 minute walk from main square. Alleys can get dangerously busy at times. Highly recommend the Riad. Wasn’t keen on Marrakesh.
Just had a lovely stay here for 4 nights. It’s right in the centre of the Medina and perfect to explore the souks and eat out and then retreat to peace and quiet.
The rooms are simple and we found out bed comfortable and the shower was good. Breakfast each morning was bread, jams, juice and coffee with an addition of pastries, yoghurt, fruit, Moroccan pancakes etc served each morning.
The sunny roof terrace is perfect if you want to relax one afternoon.
Do take up the offer of an airport transfer - it would be hard to find otherwise and taxis can’t get that close. Getting a taxi to the square and then following a cart with our luggage was a great option.
For just £40 a night, this Riad was excellent value for money. Friendly and helpful too.
