Riad Smara sits in the middle of a riot of Colour, Culture, Hustle and Bustle, street vendors selling Carpets, Lamps and Jewellery nestling side by side with Bakers, Wood workers, Bicycle Repair shops and everything in between in essence a handicraft area which reflects the true diversity of the Red City.
We take great pleasure to welcome you to Riad Smara named after the mythical city of Saints and Sheikhs in Morocco. We are a gentle level walk of seven minutes from the famous Spice Square and another few minute walk will bring you to the world famous square Jemma El Fna. Inside the Riad it’s an oasis of calm where you will be met with complimentary mint tea, drinks by the pool or on the rooftop terrace.
A trip to Morocco would not be complete without trying a gentle Camel Ride. These are in close proximity in Marrakech and the ride can last from 15 minutes to one and half hours.
Rooms & Rates
As the new owners of Riad Smara we have refurbished all the rooms to reflect the vibrant colours, textures and handicrafts of Morocco. Each of our rooms incorporate hand beaten metal and painted furniture and carpets from different areas of Morocco.
"Close by the most interesting places of the town. 7 minutes walk from the square.The persons of riad where very friendly and helpfull. When we come to Marrakesh again we will stay at this riad!"
"The stay at riad Smara was very good! The owners were very welcoming and the staff very friendly and helpfull with information about the city/ booking tours/ washing clothes etc. The rooftop is peaceful and quiet and the big square is only 10 minutes walk. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast is delicious."
"Our room was very comfortable, quiet and decorated beautifully. We enjoyed a very good breakfast each morning on the roof top deck. We have now moved on to a very nice hotel to join a tour but it seems so sterile and lacking character after staying at Riad Smara. Highly recommend!"
"Great experience. My first visit this year. New owners. Kim and George have made a huge transformation from my last visit. New look in everything and looking really good. Well done guys ... wonderful to meet you and the very best for the future."
