RIAD EL BORJ | Marrakech Medina

Located in the Derb Dabachi district just north of the main square and close to the souks, Riad El Borj is a superb, carefully restored riad with the highest tower (borj) in the medina, offering breathtaking views over Marrakech to the High Atlas Mountains. It has reasonably priced rooms, a plunge pool, a hammam, good food and lovely staff that makes it a great base from which to explore the Medina. It offers dinner to order.

Riad El Borj


Accommodation:  There is a total of 9 bedrooms:

  • 6 rooms, including the (Douiria) Suite are in the main riad; and
  • 3 are in the annexe riad - a small twin (5.1 x 2.2m), a double/twin (5.2 x 3.5m) with a fireplace in the small antechamber, and a twin salon with shutters and private bathroom outside the room.

All rooms are en suite except one twin room in the annex that has an adjacent shower room.

The annex houses the plunge pool, located just a short walk away along the alley.

All upper rooms have heating and air conditioning, whilst the ground floor rooms are naturally cool.

Two larger rooms may be rented at a premium, the suite comprising a huge central room with spectacular architectural features (including a glass dome), off which lead a double bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom on one side and, on the other side, a living room which may be used for extra sleeping.

The room called El Menzeh at the bottom of the tower has its own private terrace. .

Location: Easily found and very conveniently located in the Derb Dabachi district just north of the main square and close to the souks, the riad is located near the entrance to an alley from the main thoroughfare from the main square, Jemaa el Fna (close enough for convenience, but far enough away for it to be peaceful).

Services and other points to note: On site hammam.

Meals: A good breakfast is included. Option of high quality, generous lunch or dinner, which must be pre-ordered.

Staff: Delightful staff including excellent cooks, Rachid, the manager, and Daniel, the charming owner.

After booking we will send you substantial pre-visit information guides for your chosen destination(s).
