There really isn't a better place to stay in Marrakech than Riad Amirat Al Jamal. It is conveniently located just steps from the famous square and yet once inside it's walls, you are in a tranquil world of beauty and calm. Peggy Ward has done an excellent job of restoring this gem, and surely is an expert on Morocco. Her... More

The riad could not be better staffed by two gentlemen who act as gourmet cook, general manager, housekeeping, luggage service, advisor about local customs. Certainly the location is ideal, proximate to the City Square with its evening buzzing with activities easily visualized as similar 1,000 years ago. The ancient walkways from the riad also lead to the souks and ancient... More

Peggy was amazing. She planned our honeymoon through Morocco in May 2012 via Morocco Custom Travel (sorry I'm late to write this!). We couldn't have asked for a better trip to celebrate our life together. Riad Amirat Al Jamal: The Riad was clean, beautifully furnished and safe. The staff, including Hamidou and Sayyid were incredibly hospitable. We were happy to... More

Beautiful raid in a perfectly central location in the heart of the medina. We stayed in 2011 in the best room which was a feast for the eyes. Perfect hospitality. Marrakech and the medina is chaotic and culturally challenging for some western tourists - so it is surprising to find these amazingly beautiful raids hidden away - great contrast!

We stayed here four nights and initial impressions are excellent. Peggy the American owner has an amazing eye for interior design and everything fits perfectly.

We started our 10 day trip of Morocco with two nights at this riad in Marrakech. It was a beautiful residence, right in the heart of the old city (the medina).

We only had time for a brief stay in Marrakech and could not have chosen a better Riad. It is a very quick walk to the Jemaa el Fna and not too hidden down narrow alleys for when you're trying to find your way back. This is not an impersonal experience; the American owner, Peggy, has made Marrakech her home... More
