LUXURIOUS RIAD IN THE HEART OF MEDINA, MARRAKECH

Medina House Rental Photos and Description

Is a beautifully restored merchants’ house located in a quiet residential area

This elegant Riad can accommodate up to 16 guests with 5 luxurious guest suites. At it’s heart is an impressive cloistered patio with dipping pool. The roof terrace is one of the most remarkable in Marrakech with views across the rooftops of the Medina to the Atlas mountains. Whether it’s a special occasion, a relaxed family holiday or a last minute get-away with friends exclusive use of a whole Riad is a fantastic way to enjoy Marrakech. Our accommodation is so flexible we can offer any combination of romantic doubles, fun and practical family rooms or luxurious twins and triples. When required we can equip a whole Riad with single beds (9 at Dar Habiba, 11 at Riad Papillon, or 16 at Riad Cinnamon) providing ideal accommodation for yoga groups, dance holidays, or a girls weekend. The highlight of any group booking will be a banquet in the Riad, delicious food in a friendly relaxed atmosphere whether you dine by the pool or in a Berber tent on the roof terrace.

Mike and Lucie Wood are the owners of this gem of a hotel-riad. Mikes Moroccan friend Mohammed introduced him to Marrakech 5 years ago and with his wife, Lucie, this is the second beautiful courtyard home they have renovated following the success of the stunning Riad Papillon. The riad is a home from home and Lucie has added many little touches that make guests feel welcome and looked after such as providing a mobile phone for guests to use in case they get lost and need rescuing by the onsite staff! Mike and Lucie live on a smallholding in Hertfordshire when they are not in Marrakech.

Andrew purchased this house in 2005

Marrakech is the first place we ever visited which we could see ourselves coming back to indefinitely.

What really makes us special, and fantastic value for money, is the small team of dedicated staff in each of our Riads who will be on hand to help, reassure and advise throughout your stay. These perfect little boutique hotels each have just four or five guest rooms so we can provide a truly personal service.

It is the small things that count: complimentary toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; WIFI; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions; nothing seems to be too much trouble. We are pleased offer the loan of a local pay-as-you-go mobile to stay in touch with your English speaking hosts while you are out exploring.

An Enchanting Oasis

Riad Cinnamon is a wonderfully enchanting oasis in the middle of Marrakech. Things began well when the manager and another staff member met us and guided us to the Riad and had a cart for our luggage. They led us through the winding streets of the souks and down a side alley. We all were wondering what came next, and upon opening the door we were delighted with the answer to that query.

Inside the Riad we found a quiet island of calm with a lovely inner courtyard and well appointed rooms. The rooms were very clean and had candles and other little touches that made the place even more magical. The rooftop has a sitting area and the first night we sat with the manager and he took the time to tell us a bit about the area and ask us how he could make our stay more comfortable. They helped us to arrange a carriage tour and suggested local places to visit. The Riad Cinnamon staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home.

Our three children (ages 15, 12 and 9) were all made to feel just as welcome, something that is not always the case when you travel with children. The manager made us all feel as if we had made a friend in Marrakech. Breakfasts were yummy and there were even age appropriate movies for them to watch when they needed a break from the active days. We were so impressed.

I cannot think of any other place I would want to stay when visiting Marrakech. The location is ideal as you are in the heart of the city. The accommodations are luxurious and well appointed. The staff is helpful and kind and will do all they can to make sure you have a pleasant stay. They made sure that we got to our destination and even gave us a cel phone in case we got lost. It was the attention to detail that really set them apart.

We highly recommend Riad Cinnamon. In fact, we hope to return!

This was the first stop on our honeymoon in morocco and I couldn't have asked for a better place. Great location, fantastic staff, and piece and quiet in the medina. Mustafa and Abdu were there every step of the way to ensure we had a great experience.

I cannot say enough about this riad. The staff is Fantastic and really takes care of you. They actually give you a cell phone with their numbers in it in case you get lost. We stayed in the Essaouira suite which was very comfortable. We had a meal prepared for us the first night which was excellent. The riad is centrally located, easy walk to the jemma el fna, souks.

Hidden gem...

Beautifully finished with excellent detail, this Riad was an oasis in the middle of Marrakech. Our suite had stairs to an area with a TV, twin sinks in the bathroom, its own air conditioning (a must come summer) and an open fire for chilly winter evenings. The central area of the Riad was beautiful with a pool, and there was a further plunge pool on the terrace. The terrace was our favourite place to relax, with lots of shady areas, comfortable seating, beautiful Moroccan decor and a 360 degree view. We had breakfast on the terrace every day.

The Riad was only a few minutes walk from the central square and a stone's throw from the shops of the Medina, yet is tucked away in a little quiet side street.

The staff were really friendly and on hand 24/7 to assist with any queries. They even gave us a mobile phone to use in case we got lost, and arranged some great trips out for us (Ourika is a must!). They also arranged taxis to and from the airport and a horse and carriage ride round the palaces.

I would also recommend the meals that the staff prepare (we let them know the day before and they bought the things they needed fresh from the market the next day and served an incredibly flavoursome, authentic tagine).

Can't think of any faults - sometimes the shower took a while to heat up. I would recommmend this Riad to anyone. Absolutely first class.

Loved it

There are seemingly dozens if not hundreds of riads online to choose from, and having not been to Morocco the sheer number of choices was intimidating. Somehow we happened onto Riad Cinnamon and couldn't have been happier with the choice. There are cheaper riads around, and more expensive ones too, so the options really are limitless. We opted for roundtrip delivery from and to the airport, which for us was also a really good choice. Perhaps getting to the riad from the airport at 3PM wouldn't have been much of a task... perhaps. But the early morning flight back would have presented problems getting a taxi, as the medina part of the city is very commercially quiet around sunrise, and cars do not reach the "street" in front of the riad, i.e., it's pedestrians only. So, if you've got the extra money to pay for that service, I would recommend it. Also saves trying to figure too many things on the fly upon arrival. One would never know this lovely building existed from the outside, like much of the meandering alleyways and souqs of the old part of the town it is impossible to know what is going on behind the walls and doorways. Riad Cinnamon is delightfully appointed in traditional style, but with modern amenities like air conditioning, comfortable bedding, iPod players, and so on. The rooftop terrace is great for breakfast, hanging out in the evening, or a soak in the pleine aire dipping pool. Inside the courtyard area is mesmerizing to look at as the light goes down in the evening, and the dipping pool in this area is cold, which is fantastic on one of the hot summer days after tripping around the maze outside. We had dinner the first night at the riad, and all are in agreement that it was the best meal we had in Marrakech. Chicken tagine with four mixed veggie salads as opener and chocolate crepes for dessert. Those smells of cinnamon, cumin, garlic, cloves, saffron wafting around inside. Nice.
