a magical place in marrakech

Chez Josephine

Riad Star was formerly the Marrakech home of Jazz Age superstar Josephine Baker. Now 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 to help you make the most of your precious time in the Magical Red City.

WHAT’S BEHIND THE MAGIC?  

Riad Star represents Moroccan hospitality at its best. It’s the small things that count: orange blossom toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; free Wifi; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions. Nothing is too much trouble! We are also pleased to loan guests 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 merchant’s house; Riad Papillon, an intimate retreat  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!
