Riad Africa comprises three ancient Marrakech merchant houses fused to create a truly luxurious riad and an authentic and charming hotel in the very heart of Marrakech medina. Just 5 minutes’ walk from Djemaa el Fna – Africa’s most famous and animated meeting place – Riad Africa benefits from a safe location and offers easy access to a taxi rank, parking, restaurants and shops.
Riad Africa is British-Dutch owned and managed but is run locally by a passionate, dedicated and friendly local Moroccan team. It is a first-class category riad licensed by the Moroccan Ministry of Tourism and is a member of AMHMS – the official association of guest houses in Marrakech.
Facilities include two tranquil palm-filled courtyards with pools (one of which is heated in winter months), the popular Africa Bistro restaurant, an informal bar serving fresh juices and local beverages plus a beautiful garden roof terrace with Atlas views. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the riad.
“My fiancé and I stayed here for a week last year, the staff were all lovely, the food was delicious, so much so we ate at the hotel for 5 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff, special thanks to our waiter, lovely young man, with lots of knowledge of the local area. Rooms nicely decorated and the plunge pool was perfect to cool down after a long day shopping. Would highly recommend. We will be back!” Read more…
