Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 9.17 /10

    Although the hotel is not very far from Jemaa El Fna square, it will take you a while to get there following the winding road. Allow for a 20 minute drive to get to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    With its 5 rooms (3 suites and one deluxe room), the Riad claims to be unique. In the brown-toned suite, you'll be surprised by the ultra modern round fireplace. As in all the other bedrooms, it includes a high tech stereo system, a mini bar, and a safe. It also includes an overhead projector. From your red poster bed, you can enjoy a view of the courtyard through the iron-framed windows. The bathrooms are another original feature of the establishment, as they boast a marble, clock-shaped bathtub, walls covered in small square mirrors, and a 1930's lamp with transparent globes. Each room boasts a tea and coffee tray and an ultra modern stereo system, in addition to a private terrace.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Behind the great brown wooden door there is a huge black and white marble courtyard with a small heated pool, 2 deckchairs, and small lounge areas furnished with marble tables. There is no doubt that music is one of the most important features at this establishment and the staff even wear Bang & Olufsen clothing. Among the riad's sparse facilities you will find a hammam and a massage parlour with a bamboo-style original wooden ceiling. The hammam is true to form with its marble floor and round ceiling. It is also a place where you can listen to music.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Riad Lotus Privilege offers creative Moroccan cuisine, and a tasting menu for 500 dirhams (£38) with smoked salmon briouate, ginger-flavoured cappuccino, burbot pastillas, and a tajine with dates and quails. As you enter, you'll be immediately drawn to the small sitting room with a tiger-skin carpet and red and black velvet armchairs, a marked Indian influence, and the magnificent artwork that stands in the middle of the room. You won't fail to be impressed by the yellow cloakroom either.

    To know

    A few celebrities have stayed at the Riad Privilege Lotus, including a player for Manchester United. Everything has been carefully thought out, down to the most minute detail. If you look carefully, you'll notice that one of the stones in the courtyard is in fact a loudspeaker.

      Given the huge area taken up by the hotel's reception, you'll be surprised to find that it houses relatively few guest rooms, which actually turns out to be a good thing. The pool area and the decor in the guest rooms are sure to please, but you will undoubtedly be disappointed by the spa and the imposing appearance of the building.

      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.
