  1. Great post! Marrakech is a great city, and there are so many beautiful places to stay! I stayed in a Riad while I was there and would highly recommend everybody stay in one. I love staying in local places. Your post is great and takes all the research effort out of planning a trip. I’ll def. be saving this post for next time I go to Morocco!

  2. Amazing roundup! Marrakech Mandarin Oriental is high on my bucket list! Do you have a preference or recommendation between a hotel or riad in Marrakech?

    1. If you have never stayed in a riad, you definitely should! Mandarin Oriental is apart from the main atractions, I really recommend it if you want to relax 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for all the information and in depth information. This is really helpfull as I will go there this year.

    Love the pictures.
