If you are planning a trip to the enchanting and magical Marrakech then among the things you should take into account, there is certainly the one you choose one of the typical accommodations within the Medina: the Riad.
The riad is a typical house characterized by an internal courtyard in which there is generally a swimming pool or a fountain and small sitting rooms that characterize the balconies.
If you want to find out why to sleep in a Riad in the Medina of Marrakech and not in a classic and ultra modern hotel then we refer you toour dedicated article.
In this article we have instead selected 10 beautiful riads in Marrakech that you can look at and book on Booking *
72 Riad Living
We chose it because we love its roof terrace equipped with beds for relaxing and sunbathing but also for the common rooms for dinner or breakfast. Not characterized by the classic central swimming pool in the courtyard, it does however have a beautiful jacuzzi and the rooms, albeit in perfect Moroccan style, are equipped with all the most modern comforts.
We like this Riad for the predominant color which is blue… not just any blue but the Majorelle blue we talked about in this article dedicated to the enchanting Majorelle Gardens. More modern design, compared to that of the traditional Ria but elegant and atmospheric in the same way.
Riad Les Terrasses de Jemaa Elfna & Spa
More classic and traditional structure characterized by tiles, central swimming pool, sitting rooms and balconies that run around it and smaller rooms but in perfect Moroccan style.
The Spa allows you to live the wonderful and unmissable experience of the True Moroccan Hammam.
Riad Melhoun & Spa
Even this more classic structure, the true riad of the Medina which is a sort of oasis of peace and tranquility from the chaos and dust of the Medina and its Souk. The inlaid and decorated wood in this case dominates, compared to the usual brightly colored tiles that characterize the other Riads. This structure is also equipped with a Spa.
Riyad El Cadi
Simple rooms in perfect Moroccan style, romantic common areas to relax and enjoy a nice mint tea.
We love about this property the beautiful and large roof terrace from which to enjoy lunch or dinner, with a splendid view over the rooftops of Marrakech.
Hotel & Spa Riad El Walaa
A mix of classic and modern, this riad also has a Spa, of which we love the wonderful canopies inside the structure but also on the terrace.
Riad Kasbah & Spa
Un riad dall’architettura davvero tradizionale caratterizzato però da stanze più spaziose ed essenziali rispetto a quelle classiche.
Il punto di forza è sicuramente la Spa in stile tradizionale che offre massaggi e trattamenti esclusivi della tradizione marocchina.
This is a real Instagram star: it will be because the common spaces are really super instagrammable thanks to the green-aqua tiles, the blue doors and the lush plants.
Many details to be photographed such as hammocks, bookcases, lanterns … in short, a thousand and one nights atmosphere to share with the hahstag #bemarrakech.
L’Oriental Medina Riad & Spa
This riad is also one of the most instagrammable on the web! A super chic riad but with an absolutely not prohibitive price, it is characterized by truly beautiful and comfortable Moroccan-style rooms and a quiet and relaxing atmosphere in which its sweet and incessant flow of water from the central fountain reigns supreme.

The Bohemian Jungle
Very high and luxuriant vegetation that offers splendid plays of light and shadows. One thousand one night rooms with walls decorated with golden stars in which to feel truly enveloped by the magic of the Middle East.
