We’ve been to Marrakech 3 times and this was the very best of all thanks to our stay at this beautiful gem of a riad. My wife and I stayed in the Pasha Suite which was really big, beautiful, with a lovely open fireplace and the most amazing hot tub we ever saw !!! Very impressive and sooo cool !! Unfortunately we didn’t take any pictures but you can see it on the hotel website. Wirth a visit.
The inner courtyard is just breathtaking with its beautiful palm trees and the lovely pool. And at night, with the candles and lights it is just one of the most gorgeous places to spend an evening. Speaking of which : have dinner there! The 2 meals we had at the onsite restaurant were definitely the best we had in Marrakech. If the weather is warm enough, ask for a table by the pool.
All in all I’d call this place perfect. Marrakech is an overload for the senses if you've never been there and riad Monceau makes the transition so easy. The Riad is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trap but in the meantime it’s just off the main square which is less than a 2 minute walk. This is a huge bonus as walking in old Marrakech can be quite daunting when you are used to it.
Tip : ask to have a look at their book which is beautiful and can make a really nice souvenir from Marrakech (tons of photos of the riad + more than 50 Moroccan recipes).
