Riads in Marrakesh - English speaking riads in Morocco

Riad 'dar Maia' or 'the house of water' is hidden in the Riad Zitoune quarter, situated in the ancient medina of Marrakech near the Imperial Palace of El Bahia. Only steps away from the spice souks and the Jemaa El Fna square, this traditional Moroccan guest house offers a peaceful haven from the bustling activity of the city centre. Nearest parking, just a two minutes walk from the Riad (parking de la prefecture de la medina).

In the historical and lively centre of Marrakech, the Riad 'dar Maia' invites you to experience the Moroccan rhythm of life in a traditional Moroccan house. This charming Riad has been completely renovated with passion by its owner Maria a Spaniard living between two cities London and Marrakech.

The Riad contains five guest rooms with double beds, private ensuite bathrooms and individual heating and air conditioning units. A courtyard with a beautiful zellige fountain, and a salon where you can listen to music or watch a film. Internet access is also available.
