Not enough space to write all the wonderful experiences we had at the Raid. Clean, bright surroundings, food fantastic, lovely rooms, etc. Best of all was our host Lahcen. The perfect host in every way. Best of all he was willing to listen to us Americans who have all the answerer. The owner (who was not at the Raid) I...

We chose this riad to celebrate our mother's 65th birthday. The riad is stylishly decorated - not too lavish - and the beds were very comfortable. Being woken by the muezzin every morning - we slept with the windows open - had its own particular charm. The riad staff went out of its way to make us feel at home....

We had a truly lovely stay at this riad ! It was in the medina and was an oasis of calmness, comfort and peace away from the bustling medina. Easily accessible from the taxi stand (5 minutes walk). What is also amazing is the host Philip who was very responsive to all our queries, helped us in terms of advice...

I booked the Riad Porte Royale - five bedrooms, all beautifully furnished and with private bathrooms - for my recent birthday celebration. Despite the fact that it was off-season in Marrakech (and still a bit cold) we had a wonderful time and were treated to excellent service. Lahcen is the riad's manager and he was incredibly helpful about organising trips...

Thank you so much Beth for your wonderful review, and we loved hosting your birthday celebrations. Jemma El Fna is 20-30 minutes away—but would like to add the walk is a very animated one, past major monuments and through the colourful souks—so can sometimes take a little longer!

We had a delightful stay in this beautiful riad. It is an oasis of calm in a hectic and bustling city. Situated in an authentic quarter of the ancient medina the riad is within easy walking distance of all the historic sites. There is also a very convenient taxi 'drop off' point situated a few minutes walk away. the riad...

The Riad really is a calm, welcoming place and my room had two twin beds, three large windows and a large modern bath with a good shower and ample amenities. Three public areas (courtyard, roof and upstairs lounge) all provided places to enjoy the plants and sunshine. Everything was spotless and necessities like filtered water and extra blankets were handy....

we were fortunate to be able to have the riad to ourselves - just like a luxury private home in the old medina with wonderful caring staff. I would highly recommend staying at Porte Royal if your budget is at that level. The interiors are sparkling white with beautiful pieces of wall art to compliment the magnificent building. Being fully...

I was very impressed with the organisation before we arrived as Philipa will email you to prearrange everything for you from airport transfers to trips and evening meals. As two young girls staying in Marrakech for the first time we were a little nervous and I think we could have felt a little overwhelmed when we first arrived in the...

Our stay at Riad Porte Royale was nothing short of wonderful. As two young women traveling alone, we were slightly nervous about coming to Morocco. Philipa was extremely informative over email, and ensured we would have private transportation to and from the airport. There was also an enormous homemade breakfast waiting for us upon our arrival! Lahcen (the Riad's manager)...

Dear Philip, Just a short message to let you know we really enjoyed our short, but intense stay @ the riad. Lahcen and Najat were so helpful and kind, it was truly wonderful! We will recommend the place to all people visiting Marrakech in the future and hope to be back soon! Kind regards Kevin

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We practise ethical tourism and are legally registered as a 'Maison d'Hôtes Deuxième Catégorie' no.288/2015. Featured in the international press and guidebooks, Riad Porte Royale was build around 250 years ago close to the ramparts in an historic quarter of the medina, a short walk to major monuments, the souks, the Majorelle Garden and well-known restaurants. Renovated with traditional materials, the white walls are accented with rugs, rare textiles and artefacts from the caravan routes of Africa and Asia. All five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the pure Moroccan style make the atmosphere dreamy and zen. Breakfast is included, Wi-Fi and filtered drinking water is free and our Bio shower gel and shampoo contains argane. Meals at the riad, transport and excursions can be arranged. Riad Porte Royale is a perfect place to unwind with a drink or mint tea after a day of sensory overdose in Marrakech! ... more   less

“The Kilim room is my favourite, but I can't explain why! Over the past eight years I think I, or friends, have slept in each of the rooms. The ground floor rooms are chillier in winter, but also have no need of A/C in summer. That's the beauty of the traditional design and build of this Riad.”
