Travel Blogs from Marrakech
Marrakesh was our first foray in late September we stayed in a great little place 'Riad L'Orangeraie' (10 room hotel in the heart of Marrakech) before we spent October in Najac.
... traditional instruments, snake charmers with their cobras, monkeys on leads dressed as little girls or boys, a man with a vulture on his shoulder and on and on.....it felt like we'd slipped back into another century.
While wandering around the souk we came across a carpet auction, not your typical carpet auction, this one was for the merchants to buy, and not open to the public. The carpets on sale were 2nd ...
... cyclists here, presumably because they are a relatively inexpensive transport option. It is compulsory for the rider to wear a helmet, but most of them haven't worked out why....helmets are worn without the chin strap, or backwards, and when worn, they are only worn by the driver. If there are passengers, and often there can be several, they don't seem to have to wear a ...
... locals. We plunged into the yelling arena that is the bus station and under the screams of "bus bus bus" we managed to make some plans for the next day.
Gradually the busy city turned into a dark maze, lit by street lights, and we grabbed a cheap bite by the biggest taxi rank in the world! The entire length of the street was a mass of cream coloured Mercs, drivers, washing, praying and eating, guys with notebooks and mechanics making regular ...
... above hillsides swabbed with speckled grass and thorny bush; a towering soft tangerine dune with sensual lines sculpted by raging desert storms. She is the melodic call of a masked weaver during a streaky pink sunrise; the triumphant yip-yip-yip of a spotted hyena cheering on the night. Africa is horns, trunks, spotted fur, graceful bounders, ruthless carnivores and feathers of a thousand colours. Africa is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad de L'Orangeraie Marrakech
I've just returned from a 6 night stay at Riad L'Orangeraie and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for quality Riad accomodation in the the Medina at a sensible price.
Do,nt look any further just book it.An oasis.Perfect location .Great staff. Excellent food .Comfortable and tastefully furnished.My tip would be to save at least one evening to stay and relax and have dinner at the Riad.Also take Cyrils restaurant recommendations(and directions !!)Fondouk is excellent.
From the moment we were met at the airport by the arranged taxi driver, to the moment we were taken back, we entered a new world with our every need catered for.
We have just returned from 5 nights at the Riad L'Orangeraie which we booked after reading the reviews on this website, and I can only concur with everthing that has been written about it.
Beautiful. Tranquil Riad in the heart of the Souks
Myself and two of my friends, just recently stayed in this Riad, which in first impressions seems to be in the middle of knowhere, however it is actually in the heart of the souks. The people in the Riad are friendly and more than willing to provide for everything you want. It is such a beautiful place and so peaceful, a real escape from the bussling souks. The splash pool is enough and views from the roof terrace are stunning. Hospitible, Friendly, beautiful and a real escape in Marrakesh.
An excellent riad in a fantastic location
Have just returned from a week in Marrakech with my wife and 2 kids (12+10) We booked L'Orangerie after recommendations from tripadvisor reviewers and have yet again had a brilliant holiday. The owners Laurent and Cyril, brothers based in Monaco were great, responding to my enquiries quickly, arranging airport transport and our first night at a smaller nearby Riad Zahoun - as they were fully booked.
Great value for money
A lovely place in the old part of Marrakesh with great atmosphere. Very stylish interior design, friendly staff and big rooms. No need to go for the suites, the standard rooms are very large and stylish as well. If you plan to stay for dinner, reserve 24 hours in advance. Very close to the souks (markets). It's hard to reach by taxi, so plan in some walking. One of the best value for money riads in Marrakesh!
We recently spent four nights at the Riad de L'Orangarie and the comfort and enjoyment of our visit to the city was greatly enhanced by the riad's friendly staff. Set just on the edge of the souk, the riad is laid out with a lovely and in these cool nights, cozy dinning room, with a nice warm fireplace. We enjoyed two dinners during our stay, which were excellent and much more reasonable than some of the places that seem to cater to large groups. It is also much more romantic.
