About the Property

Situated in a quiet cul de sac, with easy access to Djemaa al Fna

Riad Shaden is a traditional Moroccan riad, in the medina of Marrakech, an easy 15 minute walk from the famous Place Djemaa al Fna. There are 6 en-suite bedrooms (4 standard double/twin rooms, and 2 suites), with reversible air conditioning and heating, flat screen televisions and safes in all rooms. On the ground floor, as well as a spacious courtyard, there is a large, comfortable living room with CD player. There are additional seating areas in the courtyard.
The riad has a spacious and secluded roof terrace with sunbeds and parasols as well as seating, both covered (shaded from the sun) and uncovered.
We can arrange airport transfers with our own English speaking drivers for a small additional charge, which we highly recommend.
Our staff speak English and French and are available at all times to help you make the most of your stay. They can help with booking excursions, recommending restaurants, and with general advice on making the most of your holiday.
Our English speaking driver can take you on excursions, we have a number of options available, including the Atlas mountains, the coast or the desert.
We can also help you to organise activities, such as golf, camel riding or quad biking.
Breakfast is included in the price and other meals can be ordered on request. Or why not combine dinner with a cookery lesson, and learn how to prepare traditional Moroccan food using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Riad Shaden is situated in a traditional district of the medina, away from the hustle and bustle, but with easy access to the famous Place Djemaa al Fna, the souks, cafes and restaurants. Within easy reach of all the major tourist attractions, including the Majorelle Gardens, Bahia Palace, Ben Youssef Medersa and the Museum of Marrakech. Enjoy a trip round the city walls in a horse drawn caleche, visit a traditional hammam, or simply wander round the narrow maze of streets, shopping in the souks. By day the Place Djemaa al Fna is occupied by snake charmers, and at night it comes alive, with food stalls, entertainers, acrobats and much more.

Why not let us help to organise your stay? We can do all the hard work for you, by organising:

- day trips and overnight excursions

- camel riding, quad biking etc

- cookery lessons

- golf

- hammam and spa treatments

- restaurant bookings

- in house celebration dinners and parties


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I live in Edinburgh, but I spend as much time as I can in Marrakech, where I have been holidaying for over 25 years..

Why the Owner Chose Rahba Kedima, Marrakesh, Morocco:
Riad Shaden is my second Moroccan riad. I bought it in 2010, after looking at many properties in the medina. I loved it on first sight and hope that you will too. It is in a traditional area of the medina where local people go about their daily lives, but it is only a short walk from Djemaa al Fna, the souks and all the tourist attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Riad Shaden is my second home, I love the building and the location. The rooms are all different but decorated in traditional Moroccan style, and I never tire of sitting on the roof terrace in the evening listening to the call to prayer and watching the storks flying overhead back to their nests.
