Riad Layla Rouge excels in many ways including Cleanliness, Comfort, Good food, very reasonable rates and a central location, add to this an incredible manager by the name of Jawed, his staff, the ambience of the Riad and you are absolutely guaranteed an exceptionally enjoyable holiday. I have travelled to many places and enjoyed lots of hostelries and this Riad really does come out as one of the best places I have ever stayed in. I went to Marrakech for a short break with my daughter , our time there was enhanced by the kindness and service we received . We also took a day trip to the Ourika Valley arranged by Layla Rouge which was very enjoyable as well as educational. A river side meal is included in the price which was a very pleasant surprise as I went to pay and was told 'no it is paid for'.
We walked through many of the Souks and at no time did we experience any high pressure sales, just fun banter and happy smiling faces. An added note - at the end of the passage way to the Riad is a stall selling wooden artefacts with just the sweetest man in charge. His prices are good and bargaining is not in anyway hard going. Look around elsewhere then buy from him [I'm not on commission by the way].
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 1 Minute from Place D'Jeema el Fna in the centre of the souqs and possibly the first ever edible hostel riad. The free tea and cake – may stop you from trying to bite into the walls – or maybe not... Have a taste…Riad Layla Rouge breathes in the Mad Hatter’s tea party of colour that Marrakech conjures, and breathes out the nearby chaos – a gentler but still eccentric heartbeat. If Riad Layla Rouge could, it would cascade chocolate from the fountain in the courtyard, but the impact is truly mouth-watering nonetheless. Tea and cake, free all day – may stop you from biting into the walls – or maybe not…they may actually be edible. Only one minute from the main square, the 3 suites provide absolute privacy, the gorgeous mixed dorm encourages adventure sharing. All can enjoy the warm, communal atmosphere of the courtyard, Moroccan salon-dining room, and 2 flower and fruit tree draped roof terraces. All this enhanced by your own personal soundtrack with ipod speakers in each room. A small and perfectly formed family run riad in the centre of the souqs – Riad Layla Rouge breathes in the Mad Hatter’s tea party of colour and spices that Marrakech conjures, and breathes out the noise and craziness nearby – a gentler but still eccentric heartbeat. You cannot help but find your favourite colour here – by day Layla Rouge is a vase of flowers or a box of hand decorated chocolates, or an techni-flavour ice-cream stand; by night a treasure chest of glittering jewels, or a sparkling solar system. Use your imagination. Riad Layla Rouge wants you to get comfy in Marrakech; to feel safe and happy; imaginative and inspired – we combine a hostel spirit and atmosphere with that little bit of indulgence that you find in a luxury riad. Share your stories of travel and life. Laugh over tea and cake with other guests in our (almost) edible house. As the Mad Hatter said to Alice: ‘You could stay…What a mad, crazy, wonderful idea…’Whether you are travelling for the first time, or have done so for years – enjoy the rhythm of a city that transforms with the cycle of the sun. When you stay at Layla Rouge you can’t be anywhere else but the Wonderland of Marrakech. ... more less
