Amazing Authentic Riad (House) In Central Marrakech

Space 3,229 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

6 bedrooms with private bathrooms( choice of twin, double, or super-king rooms).

Riad O2 is an amazing guest house nestled in the centre of the Medina or old town in Marrakech. Zen and calming, our 6 bedroom riad, where traditional architecture meets modern design features a hammam, massage room, jacuzzi-pool and a magnificent roof terrace. Being a traditional riad, the house is built around a central courtyard with a fountain and exotic plants such as a banana tree and cacti. All of the elegant en suite rooms are individually decorated with air-conditioning, double and twin rooms are available and all come with free WiFi access.

Rachida, the cook, prepares traditional dishes using fresh seasonal produce bought daily from the local market. Moad, Hassan and the two Rachidas will welcome you warmly and look after your every need.

Excursions, day-trips, and visits can all be arranged for you during your stay.

After a day out, unwind in this haven of peace and tranquillity with some mint tea in the shade of one of the roof-top tents or relax on a sun lounger before indulging in a relaxing massage (other spa treatments can also be arranged)

Riad O2, in the lovely Sidi Ben Slimane quarter is a 5 minute walk to the Souks and 15 minutes from Djema El Fna Square.

We recommend Aziz, our driver, who can pick you up at the airport when you arrive and bring you to our Riad.

We look forward to welcoming you

About Marie Grandjean

We are a French couple who fell in love with Marrakech and Morocco and are delighted to welcome guests so that they too can discover the magical city of Marrakech and hopefully also the wonderful landscapes that Morocco has to offer.

Marie Grandjean purchased this house in 2000

Why Marie Grandjean chose Sidi Bou Amar

We saw the potential of this very old riad and decided to renovate the property to incorporate modern design while respecting the local traditions.

What makes this house unique

The traditional architecture of the building, the calming water feature in the central courtyard, the Jacuzzi, traditional Hammam and the amazing roof-top terrace.

Un séjour exceptionnel !

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit magnifique, un personnel très attentionné à l'écoute et d'une aide précieuse. Les cuisinières Rachida sont vraiment exceptionnelles et le tout travailler avec des produits frais. Nous avons apprécié la privatisation du Riad et des installations mises à disposition. Seule regret et de n'avoir pu profiter de la terrasse car en hiver il faisait froid. Riad propre et très bien situé pas besoin de prendre de taxi pour aller se balader dans la médina. Toute l'équipe est extra Moah, Hassan et tous les autres. Merci pour ce magnifique séjour !
