Heart of the marrakech medina


The Marrakech Medina is a mediaeval walled City, Riad Star is located in the Heart of the old town in a district that boasts top attractions like the Marrakech Museum and the Ben Yussef Madrassa. The incomparable Jemma Al Fnaa square, a UNESCO world heritage site, is just a twelve minute walk if you can resist the colourful shops along the way.

Easily accessible on foot you will find a labyrinth of souks with specialties in diverse crafts from dyers, carpets and spices to leather goods lamps and metalwork. Intermingled are Palaces and ancient monuments, galleries and museums, cafes and restaurants, truly a feast for all the senses. Riad Star is your oasis of calm, the perfect base from which to explore.


A short taxi ride from the Medina lies the new town of Guiliez with leafy boulevards, parks and gardens as well as bars, night life and world class eateries.


The Riad Star concierge will be on hand to help with arrangements for excursions with reputable local operators. A Caleche (horse and carriage) tour is an excellent way to see the ramparts, palaces and gardens of Marrakech.

The Atlas mountains are ideal for a day trip, many of our guests enjoy a gentle stroll and a scramble up the river bed to the waterfalls Setti Fettma. The seaside is also easily accessible at the quaint fishing port of Essouira.

For the more adventurous a three hour drive will take you to the mid Atlas and the majestic Ouzoud waterfalls, the highest in North Africa, with luck you will come across Barbary apes living-free in their native habitat.
