Travellers' Choice
A very special small hotel in an ancient Moroccan riad. With just 7 beautiful rooms, a sky-blue pool and a sun-drenched roof terrace, the atmosphere is relaxed and intimate. Cyril and his friendly team feel like an extended family, serving delicious homemade tagines and creating personalised experiences to help you explore this exotic city. Nothing is too much trouble. Just a 5-minute walk from Jemaa el Fna, l’Orangeraie’s location is perfect, yet it is astonishingly peaceful here, a calm retreat after a morning in the bustling souks.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A little gem of perfection in the heart of the Medina. There really isn’t anything that you can fault this place with! Amazingly friendly, helpful and fun staff who made it a joy to stay with. Rooms are beautiful and spacious with delicious orange soaps, shampoos and shower gel etc… there were Birds in the trees inside the riad and a very friendly tortoise called Valentino too! There is a really pretty pool here too, which is perfect to cool down from the heat in! Dinner the first night on the rooftop terrace was absolutely delicious and home cooked to perfection. There was never any pressure to eat there, in fact loads of recommendations were offered when we asked. Location is superb, 5ins walk to the secret garden and main souk hub area, yet so peaceful once inside the doors of the riad. I can’t recommend this 7 room riad enough and really hope to return with my husband as this trip had been a girl’s trip!

Property's Favourite Review
Choosing a riad from the several in Marrakech is no easy task. We had a spreadsheet to keep track as we did our research and we looked at MANY. In the end we were so happy with our choice. Hands down this is the most incredible place to stay in Marrakech. The rooms, the rooftop terrace, the lounge areas, the location - all perfect and beautifully decorated. Not over the top - simple and comfortable with hints of Moroccan touches. And so quiet! It was a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. What makes it even more special is the staff. Every email and question was answered promptly by Cyril leading up to our stay, and once we arrived Aziz, Khadija, Imad (Harry Potter!) and Jamal made us feel like we were staying at our home away from home for our 4 day stay. We travel a fair amount and to say I'm picky about where I stay is an understatement. Riad L'Orangeraie is in our top 10 places we have ever stayed.

We are so glad to have found this riad and spent 3 nights here. The location is perfect - on a pretty quiet street in Medina, steps away from the busy souk, and 5 min walk from the street where we can easily get taxi. The suite we stayed is spacious with a large bathroom. The bed, pillows and blanket are all very comfortable. Not much storage space but not a big problem. There is a lot of public space - beautiful rooftop for breakfast or just lounging, two indoor lounge rooms we can just hangout in, and quiet swimming pool and courtyard. The staff is amazing! They helped with our luggages from/to the taxi. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The manager is very attentive and knows every guest. They helped our laundry needs too (12 euro for a bag). Highly recommend this riad! And will stay again if we return one day.

We've recently returned from a delightful 5-night stay at Riad l'Orangeraie, and we miss it already. Every aspect of our experience was exceptional, from the lovely room (we stayed in Saffron ) to the ideal location (within walking distance of everything in the Medina) and the charming rooftop terrace. However, what truly made our stay memorable was the incredible staff - they went above and beyond to make us feel like cherished friends. No request was too much trouble, and every interaction was accompanied by a warm smile. They efficiently organized our airport transfres, tours, restaurant reservations, and more. Their attentive care truly enhanced our experience. Aziz and his team really made a wonderful holiday even more special. Highly recommend a day tour with Najet and the cooking class with Souk Cuisine. Also make sure you sample the amazing food cooked by Nadia in the Riad on at least one evening.

My husband and I recently spent nine nights at Riad L'Orangeraie on our three week trip to Morocco. We knew that we had found the right place from the moment that we first inquired. The owner Cyril was quick to respond to our questions and helped us organize an itinerary that suited what we wanted to do. Every detail of our trip went off perfectly with no stress or wondering if a driver would show up or a tour would be worthwhile. The drivers and the guides that the riad works with are all top notch. The staff at the riad are the "secret sauce". It was a pleasure to get to know each of them. They work together as a very special team and are like a family rather than a hierarchy of authority. We ate several dinners at the riad and they were delicious and hard to beat anywhere else. The rooftop was so relaxing and quiet that it was easy to forget that you were in the busy medina. The location is perfect for taking a break during the day and coming home for a rest. Thank you Cyril and staff for a wonderful stay. We highly recommend you to our friends and family and hope to see you again.

We have just returned from 9 days at Riad l'Orangeraie and we miss it already. Everything about the place was exceptional, from the beautiful rooms (we stayed in the glorious Coriander Suite), to the perfect location (everything in the Medina is in walking distance) to the wonderful rooftop terrace and the staff - especially the staff. They treated us like friends, nothing was too much trouble and everything was delivered with a smile. They organised our transport, booked day trips, tours, restaurants, and other venues. They shared their passion and knowledge of Marrakech and the mountains; they gave us insight into their culture and history and made us feel welcomed and valued. I haven't stayed in any other riads, but I genuinely don't believe you will find better because the best people in Marrakech work at Riad l'Orangeraie.

Tucked away within the bustling Medina is the most beautiful riad in which one will find quiet respite from a busy day venturing through the local alleyways . From the service to the staff to the riad itself , our stay was nothing short of amazing . To Cyril , Aziz , and the rest of the Riad l'Orangeraie family , thank you for your kindness and care .

Our stay at Riad l'Orangeraie exceeded our expectations, which were already high based on the reviews and photos. It truly was a charming haven perfect for experiencing all the medina has to offer. Cyril and his staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, always with a smile, a laugh, and great tips. They arranged a cooking class and a hamman for us, and gave delicious restaurant recommendations. Definitely have a dinner on the rooftop, and the breakfast each morning was great. We are looking forward to going back to the riad and exploring more of Marrakech and Morocco!

A wonderful oasis in the heart of the medina. The Riad arranged a taxi from the airport which took away any stress of finding the Riad. The minute you walk through the door you are welcomed by extremely friendly and always helpful staff. The accommodation is very Moroccan, comfy beds and good facilities. The breakfast is lovely, as is eating on the roof top terrace, whether just having the salads or having the main meal. The roof terrace is a haven to escape the busy life outside. Very easy to walk to any of the sites in the Medina. We would definitely recommend L’Orangeraie to family and friends.
