Moroccan hospitality at its best. Riad Star, formerly the Marrakech home of Jazz age superstar Josephine Baker is the newest and brightest Riad in the Red City. An intimate boutique hotel with just thirteen guest rooms.

What really makes us special, and fantastic value for money, is the small team of dedicated staff who are on hand to help, reassure and advise throughout your stay.  We provide a truly personal service.

It is the small things that count: complimentary toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; Wifi; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions; nothing is too much trouble. We are pleased to offer the loan of a local pay-as-you-go mobile to stay in touch with your English speaking hosts while you are out exploring.

British owners Lucie and Mike Wood also offer you Riad Cinnamon an elegant restored merchants house, Riad Papillon intimate with a bohemian feel, and Dar Habiba a traditional Riad in the Jewish quarter. Visit the Marrakech Riad site for tourist information or make contact today!
