Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

Riad Elizabeth is a stylish, chic, boutique hotel, offering modern comfort and facilities, whilst maintaining an air of exotic Moroccan charm and romance. Situated in Hart Essoura, the oldest quarter of the Medina, it is close to the Musee de Marrakech, the Medrassa Ben Youseff and the souks, only a 10 minute stroll from the Place Jemaa el Fna, and has good vehicle access.

There are 6 ensuite rooms, each one tastefully and individually furnished, and all with the benefit of iPod docks, air conditioning, heating and Egyptian cotton sheets. Thre are plenty of places to relax with a good book, play a game of backgammon, catch up on emails or enjoy a drink, the beautiful salon which overlooks the courtyard and stunning black tiled swimming pool, the comfortable and romantic b'hou, or the roof top salon with an open fire for chilly nights, or you can, of course, lie on a sunbed and soak up the usually reliable Morrocan sun. The large roof terrace also boasts a well stocked bar, the perfect place to watch the sun go down.

There are many and varied restaurants in Marrakech, which we will be only too happy to recommend, or, if you prefer, you can dine in the riad, or under the stars on the roof terrace, on magnificent Moroccan fare cooked by our wonderful cook Aziza. We will do our utmost to ensure that your stay at Riad Elizabeth is as enjoyable, relaxing and memorable as possible.

"Riad Elizabeth was everything we hoped it would be—beautiful, stylish, well located and most of all, what lovely hosts! Your warm hospitality made our first visit to Marrakesh easy and delightful! Dinner was delicious and your walking us to the souks was especially helpful—we didn’t get lost once. Thanks so much for hosting us and we will be sure to recommend your riad to all our friends back in the States. Best,"

"We have felt like personal guests. You have welcomed us into your lovely Riad and made our experience in Marrakech. I think we could have felt like ducks out of water if you hadn’t taken us under your wing. Your staff are lovely and the food was superb. It is all much appreciated."

Bill, Vivienne and family - 2009

"Our stay in your Riad was fantastic!
We enjoyed everything: the Riad, which is beautiful and very tastefully decorated, our Felicity Room, and the majestic dinner and breakfast!! Thank you so much for all your kindness to make our stay so pleasant! We are going to miss this stay for sure."

Imês - October 2009

"Thanks for creating such a lovely place in the middle of the medina and accommodating our large and complicated party during the 26th IUSSP Conference. It was great to learn about the country from you, hear about your experiences in Marrakech and have your help facilitating our navigation of the city. Thanks for accommodating my vegetable preferences and for the great morning coffee—the evening glass of wine was greatly appreciated. The wireless internet access was also a great help."

Ann Moore, NYC - October 2009

"A wonderful week with our ‘tribe’ in Marrakech, all of us together in one lovely place. Loved the swims, afternoons on the terrace, the ease of organisation you provided, and the atmosphere at the riad—a grand experience for 10 of us! Thanks so much for everything and candlelit dinner for 12!!"

Tina and David, Ann Arbor - 2009

"I am very pleased to be able to give you extremely positive feedback on Riad Elizabeth - in my view it is in my top 3 places I have ever stayed and I've been recommending it to everyone since I have been back! It far exceeded expectations.

Their Riad is a lovely piece of calm in the Medina, the decor is very chic and John and Elizabeth's hospitality is unbeatable. They couldnt do enough for you, arranging taxi's etc but also knew when to leave you to it in the evening etc. Their team made us so welcome and the food was amazing. It was excellent value for money and a lovely additional adventure to our holiday. A completely different Marrakech to the hotel experience we had at the start of the week."
