The Marrakech medina : historic center and vibrating heart of the Imperial City (courtesy of Marrakech Charm & Chic Hotels)

“Surrounded by its famous walls, and developed around the equally famous Djemaa El Fna, the Marrakech’s medina is the historical center of the city. This is where you find the souks, museums (Madrasa Ben Youssef, Dar Si Said, Bahia Palace,…) and, embedded in the maze of narrow streets, the famous Marrakech riads without which Marrakech would not be. .. Marrakech! It should also be noted in connection with the above that “true riads” only exist – by definition – in the medina, even though lots of new hotels do not hesitate to call themselves “riads” – for obvious business reasons – even when they are located … in the countryside!

By their architecture and location the Marrakech riads have the advantage of offering a complete immersion in the city and therefore guarantee a total change a few hours flight away from Europe. The medina is therefore the preferred area to discover the true Marrakech and its people.

Whatever your choice – small family guesthouse or luxury riad – once the decision to stay in the medina, you must attach great importance to the location of your hotel.

The old city takes the shape of a huge maze, much of which is accessible only on foot. The more you sink into the depths of the city the more you can find cheap riads but that are only accessible through a long walk in the tiniest streets which can be potentially disturbing, especially at night. Note that most hotels describe their establishment as being “close to Jemaa El Fna, ” or “a few minutes from the square” which does not always conform to reality. It is your responsibility to take the time to pinpoint riads on the Old Marrakech city map, and assess their actual distance from the square or from a major access point.

Considering that this is a prerequisite for a successful stay in the medina, riads and hotels selected by Charm & Chic Hotels all have a prime location very close to the Djemaa El Fna like the famous Riad Monceau (ideal for walks in the old city and visits to the main points of interest) or near a gate (which can be useful especially if you are golfers and want to make frequent trips by taxi).”
