I stayed at L'Orientale end of March / start of April - for two days inbetween there was no room, so Latifa found me somewhere else for two days. Rooms were really beautiful, breakfasts fantastic and the service / help from Latifa and other staff was really great - from hiring mopeds to booking a table in a belly dancing...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Riad de L'Orientale for only 4 nights and wished we could have stayed a lot longer. The accomodation was excellent and really started to feel like home very quickly. The location as far as we could tell could not be beaten, a stones throw from the main square, and in and amongst the...

I have just returned to London after 4 nights in the perfectly situated and beautifully tranquil Riad de l’Orientale and am already desperate to go back! The Riad itself is stunning with lush greenery and traditional décor. It is the perfect place to escape the intensity of the Jemaa el Fna yet only two minutes from the excitement. Latifa and...

We stayed at the Riad de l'Orientale for several days and were amazed by how helpful and kind the staff were. Upon our arrival, we were offered mint tea by Latifa, who works at the riad. The next day, she even offered us an impromptu cooking lesson. The atmosphere of the riad is peaceful and serene, with charming Moroccan decor....

Excellent location north, west of the place Jama El Fna, a minutes walk to all the action and the souks. The accomodation is lovely and on...

Me and two of my friends stayed at the riad just last week and got home yesterday. the service here is excellent as good as an expensive hotel. Latifa was very helpful during our stay and helped organise a driver for us so we could go to the waterfall near the mountains. Zakariah was also very good and served all...

What a great place, the always friendly and helpful Latifa and her staff are really service orientated, our every request was met with a 'yes of course' and a smile. For the price, the courtyard, always clean rooms, roof terrace, personal service and the 2 minute walk to the Jemaa and souks, this is a peaceful quailty oasis in Marrakech....

We stayed in Riad L'orientale 10 days ago. A wonderful experience!!!, the riad is not impressive, but the service is outstanding. Very accomodating and cheerful, Latifa, the riad manager and the owner are just great. We had to leave to the airport at 5:00am and, without even asking for it, the manager offered us to prepare the breakfast at 4:40am....

“We had first two rooms on the left as you come up the stairs one double, one with twin beds-both were great. There is a room at the top of the riad with a little private terrace above the main roof terrace which has a great lounging area. The couple staying in that room were pleased as well.”
