Breakfast: Your room rate includes a delicious Moroccan Breakfast which will be served at the time of your choice! The breakfast varies each day and can include traditional Moroccan crepes (Baghrir and Mesman), croissants and pastries, Marrakech Medina breads (from the bakery at the end of the street), local honey, jams (fig, strawberry and rose jams are our favourites), omelettes and other egg dishes, yoghurt, nuts and fresh fruit salad as well as freshly squeezed Marrakech Orange Juice, tea and freshly brewed coffee. For more adventurous guests wishing to explore local foods the Riad can prepare on request White Harira, Matloaa Berber Bread, or Bissara the Marrakech variant of ‘Foul’.

Lunch and Dinner: The food we serve at lunch and dinner reflects the seasonality of available produce. We offer a range of traditional Moroccan dishes like Tagine and couscous. We can usually meet special dietary requirements such as gluten intolerance or vegan diets especially if we are given prior notice. We charge 200 dirhams per person (about £16/ Euro 18) for a three course evening meal and 100 dirhams per person (£8/ Euro 9) for lunch. Each meal is shopped for and prepared individually to accommodate guests preferences, for this reason we request that you please discuss your lunch and dinner requirements with the Riad staff ideally one day in advance.

Why not pre order an evening meal (200 dirhams per person) for the night of you arrival? The Moroccan way is for the whole party to order and share the same meal served out of traditional dishes. We recommend a selection of Moroccan salads followed by Tagine (Lamb with Cumin, Chicken with Lemon, or Beef with Prunes) served with local breads then for desert a seasonal fruit salad.

Vegetarian menu: Lucie, one of the owners of Riad Papillon, is vegetarian so you can order with confidence our equally recommended dinner of vegetarian Moroccan salads followed by the classic ‘Seven Vegetables Couscous’ then fruit salad and local pastries. Let us know your menu choices when you make your reservation and your delicious supper will be waiting for you in the Riad.

From the world famous Souks to the ever-lively Jemaa el Fna square, and from the cultural heritage sites to world class museums, there is so much things to do and things to see in Marrakech.

Here at Hip Marrakech we also offer a variety of excursion and tours in and around Marrakech from day trips to the Atlas Mountains to day trips to the desert. Here are a few examples of the trips and excursions we offer:


The Grand Tour
The Grand Tour circuit packs in as much as it is possible to see in a day from Marrakech. You will first drive up the picturesque Ourika valley passing numerous Berber villages before climbing up the ski station at Oukamdem. Your route then descends into the side Fers Valley, down to Asni and up to Imlil. Finally return to Marrakech via Asni and Tahanoute.

Price: £115 for 1 to 4 people
Duration: A day trip of approximately 10 hours


Essaouira
Previously known by its Portuguese name Mogador, a fortress still commands the entrance to the harbour and the Medina itself has walled ramparts. Essaouira is usually much cooler than Marrakech and can be windy at times, it is no coincidence that the world wind surf championships are held here.

Price: £92 for 1 to 4 people
Duration: A day trip of approximately 10 hours


Camp Adounia

Adounia was born through a passion to share the stunning landscapes of Morocco and a deep belief in the power of the Earth, a chance for people and their families to really get away from it all and enjoy nature.

Price: £150 per person

"The Riad was exactly what we wanted, an oasis in the crazy, beautiful world of Marrakech. Riad Star is tucked away in the maze of the Medina, near to the souks and walking distance from the main square. Yes, discreet and difficult to find but all part of the charm of staying within the Medina."

Kate, UK

"My wife and I loved this authentic riad. We are both interior designers in the US and we were blown away by the beauty and originality of the design of all the rooms. Our own bedroom was stunning-the star suite. It is spacious having a bed and sofa within the room but not a separate room. The bathroom was pretty and we had a great shower especially when compare with the other three hotels we stayed in during our morocco tour."

Parker, USA

"I spent 4 nights at Riad Star and cannot recommend it highly enough! The riad is stunning with unique rooms and in a great location, only a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the souks and main square."

A Guest, Nutfield, UK

"After you have enjoyed Marrakech's insane and vibrant streets to come back to the Star is just wonderful! Cool, elegant and beautiful interiors and the most welcoming and lovely staff - Abdel and Miriam look after you brilliantly with excellent food ( the best we had in Marrakech by a long way ) and a genuine desire to make your stay the best it can be. There's a great roof terrace and a full ( vigorous! ) hammam for the brave! We will recommend it to all our friends...."

Lawrence H, UK

"Riad Star is the amazing and newest Riad hotel in the vibrant Marrakech, located in the medina, known to be the one-time residence of Josephine Baker. It offers a quite relaxing environment contrasting with the outside busy medina, with very nice and attentive staff, tasteful meals and sunny terrace with a dipping pool fountain. The rooms are classy, gorgeous and well-equipped. Riad’s hammam and massage suite are another plus. Hotel-mobile phone was offered during my stay in case I get lost in the red city. The staff are Very friendly and know how to Please a guest. The food is delicious! Would go again for sure."

A Guest

"The free Hipmarrakech App has proved amazing for our clients. It gives them confidence to navigate the medina knowing they can always find their way back our house, even with NO data roaming switched on. Further it locates many restaurants in Marrakech that our guests like (some of which give discounts to those with the App), and then helps them find their way back to the riad easily. Further, they can also book excursions in or around Marrakech at short notice."

The Owner of Hip Marrakech
