Riad Les Bougainvilliers
Ranked #121 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2011

If you have ever been to Marrakech then you know walking the medina and the souks with the two way traffic of donkey carts, mopeds, bicycles, native pedestrians and other slightly bewildered tourists all traversing a very confined can feel as if you are taking your life in your hands. Total sensory overload! So, being able to return to the oasis of calm that is the Riad Les Bouganvilliers is truly wonderful.

The raid is very conveniently located (less than a five minute walk from the main square) within the medina. The staff couldn't be more helpful. They normally serve breakfast and an evening meal on request. We opted to eat in on our first night and throughly enjoyed a lamb tagine. On our last day we asked if it would be possible to have a light lunch before our return flight. No problem...We were served a delicious vegetable salad, a chicken tagine and a pomagranant dessert...delicious, authentic and VERY reasonably priced.

One of the things that I really enjoyed was the sense that the staff working here seemed to enjoy their jobs and each other. This translated into a calm, friendly, warm and relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed here for 3 nights two of which were B&B and one half board. The staff were very helpful and the facilities just what we needed for visiting the sights of the city. The location is a 5 minute walk from the main square.

This is a small (10 rooms) riad but amazing in both quality and staff. We went for my partners birthday and they helped me arrange so many day trips and excursions while we were there. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and no request was ever too much for them. We had the choice of our room and found the place lovely and peaceful. Just off the main square I would have unferstood it if it was a bit noisy but it was serene and wonderful. We would definately recommend it to anyone interested in staying in Marrakkech and if we had the chance would be there in a flash!

It was as good as expected having read previous reviews. You walk down the road full of stall holders trying to get you to buy their wares, real hustle and bustle, Donkeys, motor bikes etc, turn down a small alley and arrive at a beatifully carved wooden door. On entering it is amazing, lovely huge Banana tree growing from the centre of an Atrium up to open roof. Rooms are set round a veranda looking down on tables for tea, and comfy corners for relaxing.Very tastefully decorated and each room different, our first room was lovely but the mattress rather hard so they quite happily changed our room for a more comfy bed. Roof terrace where you can sunbathe and relax. We ate in the first night, just as well as it poured with rain, the food was good but Tagine a bit dry. It has 10 rooms but only 3 occupied so a little quiet. Easy to get around as 3 mins from Jemaa El Fna square and the other way to Place des Ferbianders where we found 2 nice restaurants Le Tanjia very busy with belly dancers later on! and Kosybar which is a terrace serving lunch and dinner overlooking Place Ferbianders wihere lots of Storks are nesting on top of roofs.

Have just returned from a 4 night stay. This is a perfect place to stay. Very good clean rooms and very helpful staff. Monssef the manager could not have been more helpful. He sorted us out with a private tour to the mountains, organised a hammam for the girls and also helped with other travel confirmations. The food is excellent if you eat in and the Riad is able to serve alcohol which the restauants around Jemaa el Fna square (only 10 mins walk) do not.
I would certainly reccommend this as a great place to stay, and for peace a quiet away from the bustle of Marrkech.

Having stayed in many wonderful riads and hotels in Marrakech, this beats all of them. I came with my wife and two children and we had an magical stay at riad les bougainvilliers. The riad has been beautifully restored and feels truly authentic, but with all the comforts many other riads lack. Lots of space, beautiful food and very friendly staff. We settled into a nice routine of wondering down to the main square early evening (just minutes away), drinking gin and tonic on the terrace and then being served an exquisite dinner... life doesn't get better! I shall return again and again... thank you for your kind hospitality!
