niood lists you the 11 best boutique hotels in Marrakech in Morocco:
72 is a tranquil Eden of peace in the heart of the colorful Medina.
Each of the 72’s rooms are individually decorated and styled, but all offer a relaxing and elegant retreat from the outside hustle and bustle you can enjoy getting lost in during the day. But at the day’s end, climb up to 72’s expansive roof terrace, one of the highest into the Medina, to watch the beautiful sunset and later dine under the stars, enjoying our Head Chef’s contemporary Moroccan creations. Families or friends can treat the 72 as their own by occupying all the rooms and the luxurious grand suite offers couples the ultimate romantic escape.
Riad Adore is a cool, chic, contemporary 10-bedroom riad in the very best area of the Medina, close to the souks, the monuments and the main square.
Newly restored by the celebrated architect Christophe Simeon, Riad Adore offers guests discreet luxury and first class service in the very heart of Marrakech.
This sparkling new riad is light, bright, calm and peaceful. The modern Moroccan inspired décor evokes all the charm of traditional riad style while providing all the creature comforts desired by the discerning traveller.
Located in the heart of the Marrakech palm grove yet just minutes away from the Medina, Hotel Les Deux Tours invites you to experience an Oriental dream, a time away from time to charm every visitor. Our private Garden & Pool Suites are scattered throughout a verdant 3-hectare park of labyrinthine Andalusian gardens, pools and fountains.
Staying at Les Deux Tours is an opportunity to indulge in an array of gastronomic delights. For a light lunch outdoors, La Pergola welcomes you in a relaxing and calm garden environment adjacent to the swimming pool.
Located in the heart of the Marrakech medina, Dar Housnia is an elegant guesthouse, consisting of a riad and a douiria—a little private house—, which succeeded in preserving the genuine charm and authenticity of Marrakech housing.
Its sober and refined decoration creates an atmosphere of quiet luxury, mixing respect of the Arab-Andalusian architecture and contemporary comfort.
Life in the Riad focuses inwards, a design principle favoured in Islamic notions of privacy. The name ‘Riad’ comes from the Arabic word for a garden, where trees and arcades create a peaceful oasis, lush with plants and cooled by fountains and pools.
Riad Azzar has been open since January 2004 and from the very start has made a significant mark. The house is furnished in beautiful soothing colours and comforts for a sense or peace.
An atmosphere of refined charm is apparent as soon as you duck into the small entrance and enter an elegant courtyard area with a gorgeous plunge pool, banana tree and many other plants and flowers. You will feel immediate at home in Riad Azzar with an affable feeling that also pervades the 3 rooms and 3 suites and the other public areas such as the pleasant alcoves, the comfortable dining room, the salon with music and books and a roof terrace with lounge area and sun beds to sunbathe in privacy.
The supremely well located Dar Les Cigognes faces the gates of the Royal Palace in the heart of the historic medina. With most of the major sites just steps from our front door, the bustle of the souks and adjacent Place des Ferblantiers, Dar Les Cigognes is a convenient base for a visit to Marrakech. As one of the very few riad hotels located on a street, Dar Les Cigognes offers guests the additional ease of being able to come and go by car.
For centuries, a discreet door opposite the gates to Marrakech’s Royal Palace led to a wealthy merchant’s home. Today, behind that door, with the help of celebrity architect Charles Boccara, we have transformed two Riads into the luxury boutique hotel called Dar Les Cigognes. A Riad is a traditional Arab house, traditionally an interior world, which is built around a courtyard with fruit trees and a fountain. A stay at Dar Les Cigognes offers a rare glimpse into a world from 1,001 Nights, with all the comfort and luxury of a modern boutique hotel.
Riad Joya’s architecture project and design concept are the fruit of the eclectic vision of Umberto Maria Branchini.
7 Suites individually conceived to evoke all senses, the magic and the very essence of the Moroccan history, mingling sleek shapes and spaces with Moroccan flavours, all reflecting different settings, atmospheres and style.

L’Hôtel Marrakech is a privately owned Riad set in the heart of the ‘red city’s’ Medina. L’Hôtel is conveniently close to the vibrant Jemaa El Fna square, the bustling Souk and nearby the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque. This historic 19th century riad, originally the central part of a Caidal palace, comprises five spacious suites surrounding a uniquely wide courtyard garden and swimming pool. This charming retreat combines delicious food, great comfort and service whilst capturing the elegance of hotels of the1930s.
