HOT HOTELS: Riad Kasbah, Marrakech, Morocco

Riad Kasbah, Morocco

What’s hot?

Although the medina, tucked away in the centre of Marrakech, seems hectic, dusty and uninviting, any visitor to the city has to stay in this area to get a real feel for the traditions of this exotic country. 

An uneven, dusty road leads up to the huge, wrought iron door of the riad. As soon as the door opened, the hotel is like a haven of peace and tranquility. Simply decorated with traditional Moroccan drapes and lanterns around a courtyard, the riad is intimate, charming and beautiful.

To/from the airport

The hotel includes transfers by standard car to and from Marrakech airport at an additional rate and the journey takes about twenty minutes.

Location, location, location

The location is great and only about a 5-10 minute walk to the famous main square: Djamaa El Fna.

The rooms

The rooms are fairly small but adequately sized and always clean. And the shower is a little stone cave with a space at the top where the mist collects into a cloud.

The food

Experience a traditional Moroccan breakfast on the roof terrace, which has panoramic views over the city with the Atlas mountains surrounding the area like a protective fortress.

Special touches

The service at this place is impeccable. After I returned from an outing, the maids had folded all of my clothes and put my shoes into little compartments. They even scattered rose petals on the bed and in the bathroom.

What’s the damage?

£45 – £80 per room per night including breakfast and airport transfers.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi, thanks for getting in touch. A blog doesn’t actually need to cost anything – for mine, I only pay a small annual fee to keep my own domain name (but this is optional). WordPress and Blogger are both great places to start and they have really useful help forums for when you might get stuck. Hope that helps.
