Just a short walk to the central square and souq's this hotel is in the heart of Marrakech, however you'd never know it.
Once inside its complete tranquillity from the outside.
We were a family with a 5 year old, and we loved the different pools, restaurant's, and walking distance proximity to everything.
The rooms were beautiful, spacious, and well equipped.
Can't fault it.
Everyone said "stay in a riad for the real experience", but we wanted a decent pool and after extensive research this was the only place within a decent walk of the action so we went with it. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the 3rd floor (the rooms all do), which had a real 'wow factor' on arrival - modern and stylish (the hotel is 5 years old). Huge room, big built in telly with Bose sound system, 2 open plan bathrooms and separate toilet and walk in closet.
The hotel did indeed have a very big pool and was 10 minutes from the main square and the new part of town (in the other direction). Breakfast was generous and plentiful (though I do miss my bacon!).
Overall it was a lovely 5 days that I would thoroughly recommend.
Chose this Riad based on Trip Advisor comments and we were not disappointed! Paid a bit extra for a Luxury suite which was enormous and fabulous. All the staff were very friendly but were never 'in your face' yet the minute we wanted something they were there. It was so peaceful that it was hard to believe that we were so close to the real hustle and bustle of the heart of Marrakech - a 15 minute walk away. The roof-top terrace was a wonderful place to relax and sunbathe after a morning in the Souks! We stayed for 5 nights and ate dinner there twice - choosing traditional Morrocan food which was delicious. We experienced a traditional Hammam in the Spa, which was a great experience! A very chilled out sort of hotel with only 10 rooms so sometimes you feel like you have it all to yourself! Absolutely perfect!
Le Riad Monceau, what more to say other than it was a great place to stay in the heart of the Medina.
Unbelievable to sit in the courtyard or on the sun terrace and realise your are only minutes from the market. Tranquility amid the husstle & bustle of Djemaa El Fna.
Staff were excellent and couldn't be any more helpfull.
My wife and I were only there for the 4 nights, but wouldn't hesitate to recommend Le Riad Monceau to anyone visiting Marrakech.
Only dissapointment for us, was that we weren't able to attend one of the cooking classes. They looked great.
A holiday of contrasts - from the shock of walking through the medina to the luxury of being escorted to the riad and the mini palace that awaited. A shock of culture, the senses and taste buds that took a couple of days to really appreciate. The local tour organised by the hotel was very useful, albeit a bit of a shock. Other tours we organised around the three valleys, balloon and camel adventure and palaces and monuments were wonderful.
