It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of riads offering you a place to stay while in Marrakech, so hopefully this recommendation will make it easier for you! Riad Edward is a stunning ten-room riad. Located within the medina, it’s suitably removed from the hustle and bustle, meaning it’s quiet but also pretty difficult to find your way back to through the maze-like streets of the medina!
After entering through a low wooden door, the central atrium is quite breathtaking – sunlight streams down, sparkling off a huge hanging lantern, as guests sip traditional Moroccan mint tea in low-slung chairs and loungers around the turquoise pool.
Rooms are traditionally but luxuriously decorated, and are simple while still covering your every need. Air conditioning, a hammam-like bathroom with a marble topped bath and gilded sink, and breakfast served just outside your door by the pool – Riad Edward is a welcome oasis of calm from the madness of the medina!
Available to book through Airbnb for around £54 per night.
