The Riyad El Cadi is a maze-like collection of rooms only a short walk from Djmaa el Fna offering unexpected delights at every turn: unadorned Moroccan architecture in its pure forms with lovers' balconies, secret alcoves and glimpses of an outstanding collection of art and antiques from Morocco to Turkey..

The late owner, former German Ambassador to Morocco, was an important collector of early Berber textiles, Islamic and Byzantine art and rare Moroccan artifacts. His museum quality pieces are displayed in every room.

Altogether five courtyards provide various areas in which to relax under palms and citrus trees or beside the small pool. Three salons with a TV and hifi, a well-stocked library, a red walled hammam and extensive roof terraces with deckchairs and tents ensure that there is always somewhere quiet to be found at Riyad el Cadi.

The ground floor rooms have ensuite showers and the first floor, air-conditioned rooms and suites ensuite bathrooms. Maison Bleue - two bedrooms, two bathrooms, small kitchen: ideal for families. Each room or suite is decorated using items from the collection as a centre piece, such as an original painted ceiling, Ottoman embroideries, a Roman capitol or a Chinese chest.
Riyad El Cadi has a calm and refined ambience - a combination of the elegance of the setting and the considerate service provided by its welcoming staff.

Perfect stay

Even though we arrived late at night, we were warm heartedly welcomed by Riyad El Cadi's staff. Said in his joyful manner showed us to our rooms, took care of our luggage and served the soothing fresh orange juice. It was a perfect start for a perfect stay in Marrakech. We loved strolling around in the city with all the madness in the streets but almost more we loved returning to our tranquil riad being served one of our countless mint teas, having a delicious dinner accompanied by a good glass of wine. Extreme relief to us was the fresh pool as the days where really hot in July. Rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. We just loved the balcony in our suite. Owner Julia showed us around the Medina and to her favoured places, cafés and galleries. This combination of personal touch, taste and high standard service we had not experienced before.

A place to return

By Lucia | Young Couple

We staid for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment of it: a maze of courtyards, corners and alcoves inviting to discover the impeccable taste of a lover of oriental and modern arts. We were pampered by the very attentive and friendly staff, Khadija welcomed us with her broad smile and willingness to help in any situation. Food was extremely good, we very much loved the fish Tajine we could not find elsewhere and the delicious deserts Hassan produced. We will certainly come again.
