I spent 2 nights at the Riad Palau, with my boyfriend and 3 friends. I stayed at the "Essaouira Standard Twin Room" and it was good. The room was not spacious but it was enough for us. There were bathrobes for free and a hairdryer in the bathroom. The only inconveniente was that the shower drain is a bit clogged...

The rooms are very comfortable. Mohammed and Tarik were very helpful and friendly. Relaxed environment. The common area is very cosy and nice to stay in the evenings or relax if you are tired. Walking distance from all important sites

It's a very good place in itself but Mohamed and Hamid who are always there - friendly, welcoming and ready help when needed, make it excellent! Also the riad is well located they gave us a simple mobile phone with a few numbers on the contacts list so we can call them in case we get lost in the maze...

Tasty food, excellent rooms, rooftop with jacuzzi and always smiling staff. The only regret was to stay there first days. No other hotel could beat it around Marrakech. Good quality for a very competitive price. Located in the heart of Medina. Safe place and taxi station nearby. If you wake up early you can get a bicycle from the riad...

We were greeted by Hamid who welcomed us to this lovely Riad. I would recommend the airport pickup as it would be difficult to find without (as with all Riads in the medina). The location was good, far enough away to escape the craziness of the centre of the medina but close enough to walk in. Hamid made our stay...

I would highly recommend Riad Pilau as a place to stay in Marrakech. Hamid and Mohamed were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome and ensured we had everything needed for our stay. They organised the day tour of the Atlas mountains through Toureg Excursions, a thoroughly enjoyable day out of the busy city. Rooms were cleaned everyday and...

This is an excellent place to stay. It's about 1km to the square which is perfect because it means you can chill on the roof without hearing the snake charmers and other city noise. Mohamed and Hamid make this Riad excellent. They are kind, helpful and funny. Anything you need help with they'll take care of. Rooms aren't huge but...

The hosts, Mohamed and Hamid, are very welcoming and they really make you feel at home, offering the right balance between giving you privacy and always being there for you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Palau is the result of Sonia and Josep Maria's dream, a couple from northern Spain who always had the illusion of owning a Riad and manage it as a Guest House in the medina of Marrakech. Riad Palau is an ancient small palace placed in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods of Marrakesh. Two years of restoration held by the best artisans in the medina and the experience and help of our friends Manel and David guarantee that your stay in Riad Palau and in the "Red City" won't be easy to forget. ... more   less
