Great location- it's in the Medina but tucked away and away from the chaos. Hesham and Amina are the caretakers and they are absolutely lovely. Amina prepared a traditional Moroccan breakfast for us every morning. Hesham is so helpful in coordinating logistics and making sure the guests are well taken care of. We had a wonderful time at the riad.

Riad L'Emir is an excellent riad right in the middle of the medina. It is so close to the souks and restaurants. Room and bathrooms were clean and spacious, only lighting was a little dim. We were greeted by the owner, who was so warm and welcoming and all the staff were excellent at the Riad. The view from the... More

Great experience right from the start. Hassan (Kojak Taxi) took us to hotel were we met our host, Icham. He made us feel right at home. Food was amazing, prepared by Amina. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. They couldn't do enough for us. We used Hassan all week as our Taxi/Tour guide.he was simply amazing.

Beautiful and hotel, especially the roof terrace where the restaurant is. Extremely delicious food always elegantly presented, great service too! The staff helped us arrange a camel trip to the Sahara with good price. I'll definitely go back again.

Riad L'Emir is a must for anyone who wants the perfect holiday and the REAL atmosphere and feel of Marrakech!

Very helpfull staff and managment. Just felt a little guilty returning back to the riad later than planed and knowing that we had to ring the bell to be let in. Very much enjoyed the lovely roof terace . Meals cooked were a little on the high price but well prepared and cooked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A luxurious guesthouse with a contemporary style, completely refurbished in 2005 and expertly blending simplicity and technology. The Riad L'Emir is a residence with great character situated in Marrakesh's medina, a refuge of peace and tranquillity. Here, the comfort of a modern hotel establishment and the refinement of traditional local architecture are united in great harmony. When night falls, the exoticness that envelops the location becomes more intense thanks to the magical light arrangements installed around the indoor swimming pool. In this extremely relaxing ambience daydreams and reverie come into their own. The silhouette of the Kutubia reflects on to the terrace to complete the beautiful setting of this peaceful place where relaxation can not be avoided. ... more   less

“We stayed in the 'Jawhara' suite. It was beautifully furnished and clean, with a modern air con unit and T.V. (both remotely controlled). The bed was huge and very comfortable. There is plenty of wardrobe space and even a secure safe for valuables, which really helped us to relax during our stay. ”
