or reserve your room at Riad Selouane.

The Riad

Our Riad Selouane is a lovingly run guest house with 6 rooms in the heart of the world-famous medina of Marrakesh.

The excel­lent loca­tion near the old royal palace Dar el Bacha offers a lot of relax­ing peace and quiet and yet it is only a few meters to the hustle and bustle of the souks — the ideal loca­tion for a vaca­tion in Marrakesh.

The souks have been the heart­beat of the city for over a thou­sand years. The dyers, the shoe­mak­ers, the iron smiths and the many other traders with thou­sands of orien­tal goods are just a few steps away from our Riad.

And while the medina pulsates to its thou­sand-year-old rhythm, the Riad Selouane welcomes its guests like a dream from a thou­sand and one nights. The inner court­yard with its many plants and pool is an oasis of calm, and not just on hot days.

The sweep­ing view from the roof terrace over the medina to the Ben Youssef Mosque is rounded off on clear days by the snow-covered panorama of the Great Atlas.

Breakfast at Riad Selouane

The day at Riad Selouane begins in the morn­ing with a relaxed break­fast on the roof terrace. Between orange trees and olive trees you will find dreamy seats for roman­tics or cool shade under our Berber tent.

While you enjoy a typi­cal Moroc­can break­fast, the city next door wakes up every morn­ing with an inspir­ing bustle. Equipped with recom­men­da­tions from our team, you can start explor­ing the medina straight away. 

Our manager Nouri knows his way around Marrakesh and will be happy to help you plan activ­i­ties or make restau­rant reservations.

Of course we offer you alter­na­tives for break­fast and dinner in case of food aller­gies.
If you require gluten-free food, please inform us in advance.

Oriental culinary delights

In the evening, we offer you a tradi­tional Moroc­can meal in our roman­tic Berber tent on the roof terrace (advance book­ing required) — always a real feast for the palate with a wide vari­ety of spices and ingredients.

Our team will be happy to make seasonal sugges­tions for the menu in the morn­ing, after which the ingre­di­ents are bought fresh from the traders in the medina and prepared with love by our chef Hafida follow­ing old family recipes. 

Accord­ing to feed­back from our guests, Hafida’s kitchen is a real insider tip!

Forget time — pure relaxation

During the day, you can relax on the roof terrace with a moroc­can tea or coffee and take in the sights of the city. If it’s too warm, why not take a dip in our pool in the court­yard — the perfect way to cool off!

Each of our 6 rooms is furnished differ­ently and has its own bath­room. Free high-speed WiFi is avail­able in all rooms and through­out the riad. 

In the evening, our night manager will ensure your safety in the Riad Selouane, in addi­tion to the neigh­bor­hood secu­rity guard.


Within a radius of just two to five minutes’ walk, you will find a large number of restau­rants and bars as well as a vari­ety of sights such as muse­ums, historic gardens and palaces.

The selec­tion of well­ness offers ranges from historic hammams to modern spa facil­i­ties. A visit to the hammam is always a great way to round off a day in the souks of Marrakesh, followed by dinner in one of the many restau­rants in the medina.

If you are drawn to the hip clubs in the new town, the cab rank at Dar el Bacha is not far away.
