OVERVIEW \ elegant MINIMAList riad starting at $110

Located in the center of the historical medina of Marrakech, this exquisite riad was lovingly restored by Sarah and Grégoire, a French-Belgian couple, who fell under the charm of the Marrakech Medina 12 years ago. For their latest find, Riad 42, the architectural elements were maintained, while creating a minimalist style that elicits a sense of well-being. Upon entering the elegant guesthouse, one immediately feels a sense of calm, surrounded by a soft neutral palette with grounding dark grey accents, featuring warm woods and hand-woven textiles. The charming 5 room guesthouse is a perfect mix of traditional architecture with modern elements, inspiring serenity in the middle of a bustling medina.


The Riad has 3 double rooms and 2 suites. All the rooms are bright with high ceilings and traditional architectural elements, furnished with natural tones, wood accents, and woven tapestries and textiles. All the rooms have en-suite Tadelakkt bathrooms with shower, wc, an hair dryer, a safe for personal use and storage spaces. All rooms are air conditioned.
