Experts' Choice riads in the medina of Marrakech

These 11 riads are the best of the best in the heart of the city.

The medina of Marrakech is its beating heart.  Behind the Almoravid ramparts that demarcate this historic center of the city, you'll find some of the most sumptuous and atmospheric riads on offer.  Riads, traditional houses arranged around central courtyards, are a hallmark of the medina where they proliferate.  They vary considerably in quality and value, but sticking with our Experts' Choice list, you'll find the one for you.  The best of them all just may be Riad Farnatchi, which Frommer's calls "Chic, intimate, and luxurious".  For something on a yet grander scale, there's the ultra-luxe Royal Mansour, commissioned by the king of Morocco himself.  Best if you have a royal budget at your disposal.  Dar les Cigognes and Riyad el Cadi, meanwhile, offer good value for the riad experience.  In the medina, there's a riad to match just about everyone's taste and price point.  Let our experts guide you to yours.
