We stayed in L'etoile d'orient for 5 nights and everything was spot on! The room was beautiful and clean. The service was amazing, we met the owner, very friendly and professional. Mohamed and Azedin were extremely helpful and made us feel welcome. Breakfast was really good on the rooftop of the Riad served every morning with a smile! The Riad...

I was here with my two boys over March break. The property was nice and clean. The location was central and a couple of minutes from the main square. The breakfast was minimal but okay. Overall it was a nice place but it didn't really deliver the atmosphere that I was expecting from a riad. In future, if I were...

Amazing place to spend our first few nights. It's a beautiful riad, mordern and clean but has that exotic morrocan feel. The staff were all lovely, Mohammed was a fantastic host, showing us how to get around on the map and arranging day excursions for us. He really made us feel at home and was so helpful. Breakfast on the...

We chose Riad l'Etoile d'Orient on reviews and location and we were not disappointed. The riad is everything you will need, lovely rooms, peaceful, informative staff, good food, lovely hot tub, great Wi-Fi and nothing is to much. If you want a great location close to Jemaa el-Fnaa, this is the place for you. Only a 2-3 min walk to...

We decided to of course stay in a Riad in Marrakech, seeing as this was our first visit. Mohamed and his staff were totally amazing. I will not stay anywhere else in Marrakech next time. This Riad is wonderful!! From the time I booked the week long stay, to the time we checked out, everyone was just wonderful. The Riad...

We thought we would try the hospitality of a riad rather than a hotel for our few days away, we were not disappointed. On arrival Mohammed the manager made us extremely welcome, he gave us a tour of the riad showed us to our beautiful spacious room on the ground floor. He then gave us a detailed orientation on Marrakech...

Beautiful Riad. Only a 2 min walk from the main Jmaa El Fna square yet is was a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle. We booked the Dana room which was compact but perfectly fine for a few nights for a couple. The staff were amazing and made our stay. They were very friendly and helpful, especially Azedine, from...

One truly has to heap praise on this riad (and staying in a riad in Morocco is generally the best way to get the spirit of the country).Situated in the medina, it has only several rooms, each of them beautifully furnished with lots of great artefacts, ranging from lovely mirrors to items in the bathroom. There is a small swimming...

The riad is excellent, the hosts are super nice and they help you in anything you may need. It is near all the important turistic places such as palais bahia, zouk etc. The breakfast is great and really big and although it is in the city center it is calm and quite. The service is great, very clean and with...
