Riad Aamira Derb Ben Zina 52/53 Kasbah Marrakech, Morocco
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The first thing you'll love about the riad Amina is its interior courtyard. It provides a calm setting, tucked away in the bustling Medina. The interior is simple but colourful. As is the case with any riad, it's better suited to a romantic stay than a family holiday.

    Location 6.51 /10

    Located in a small alley north of the Medina in the Sidi Ben Slimane neighbourhood, just 15 minutes from Koutoubia, the Riad Amina is a 20 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna square and 15 minutes by taxi from the airport.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 12 rooms are divided into 3 categories: standard, superior, and suite. All of the standard rooms afford a courtyard view. Each room has its own specific layout and interior decorating, though red and green seem to be the dominant tones in the rooms and bathrooms. One of the suites has a sofa bed and although the unit is partitioned, it is not made up of 2 separate rooms. The red ceiling is an original feature. The superior room is a duplex that can accommodate more than 3 guests, but it only has one small ground floor bathroom. The brass sinks are surrounded by white and blue tiling and the showers are covered in colourful tadelakt.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Riad Amina occupies an 18th century building that was renovated in 2000. The project lasted a year and a half and great care was taken to preserve its original architectural style. The riad used to belong to Amina, one of the sisters of King Hassan II. As in most of Marrakech's riads, one enters through a small door that leads into a large courtyard of brickwork and tiles, decorated with flower arrangements and a magnificent fountain. The atmosphere is relaxing and you can even hear the birds sing. The hotel features an original lounge area, with an intricate ceiling, large wooden doors, and thick walls. The dar that faces the riad was built in 2005 and includes a massage parlour, individual Turkish baths, and a jacuzzi. It also boasts a magnificent painted wooden ceiling but doesn't have a fountain or a courtyard. Don't worry about returning late to the hotel, as there is always someone to open its doors for you. The terrace overlooks the new part of the city as well as the palm grove and affords a magnificent view of the mountains and the road to Casablanca.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel does keep regular meal hours, but guests can pretty much order food whenever they want, as the idea is to make them feel at home. You can choose between traditional Moroccan cuisine and a large variety of specialties: tajine, couscous - royal or with 7 varieties of vegetables, tangia marrakchi, dove or chicken pastilla, and seafood. Among the other homemade dishes on offer you will find samosas (salty or sweet).

    To know

    The Amina has its own dar, opposite the hotel, which is a small Moroccan house with 4 additional rooms. When you book, inquire as to which accommodation unit you'll be staying in.

      You won't fail to be seduced by the originality of the Riad Lotus Privilege, which resembles more of an Italian palace than a Moroccan riad. A great level of detail and care has been put into this establishment, but if you're after something a bit more traditional, you might be disappointed.

      It is hard to define this magical and unique place. The Palais Namaskar is completely different than what you will find elsewhere in Marrakesh and we were definitely won over! A luxurious little palace, it manages to avoid all those poorly chosen details that some luxury hotels are capable of including. Neither flashy nor ostentatious, the Palais Namaskar is sober and sophisticated. The luxury can be seen in its magnificent gardens, in the personalised service guests receive from the moment they arrive, in the stylish decor, and even in the lack of any flashy features. The Palais Namaskar will definitely become a go-to place for an exacting clientèle that is discreet but also, and mostly, quite wealthy.

      Excessiveness and pomp are the two keywords at the Taj Palace Marrakesh, which will definitely leave guests talking for a long time and attract a few curious visitors. Those who can afford to stay in this palace will appreciate the very personalised service, the welcome worthy of a king, and the attention that is put into every detail of the decor. Although there will certainly be those who find the decor isn`t to their liking, as it really is very razzly-dazzly and just too much. However, this hotel really is worth having a look at and is sure to stir up the curiosity of tourists.
