The former imperial city of Marrakech is one of the jewel’s in Africa’s crown. Its proximity to Europe – less than a 4-hour flight from London – has helped it become a major tourism hub, and yet visitors are drawn here by far more than mere convenience. Marrakech offers a sensory explosion of sights, colours, tastes and smells – all of which are at their most abundant within the confines of the city’s historic medina.

Accommodation in Marrakech revolves around the concept of the ‘riad’ – a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard. The options for staying in a riad can vary from budget all the way through to the very pinnacle of luxury. For those happy to push the boat out and experience Moroccan hospitality at its most lavish, we’ve picked out 7 of the best 5-star and luxury hotels the city has to offer.
