Riad Star, Marrakech
Riad Star is the amazing and newest Riad hotel in the vibrant Marrakech, located in the medina, known to be the one-time residence of Josephine Baker. It offers a quite relaxing environment contrasting with the outside busy medina, with very nice and attentive staff, tasteful meals and sunny terrace with a dipping pool fountain. The rooms are classy, gorgeous and well-equipped. Riad’s hammam and massage suite are another plus. Hotel-mobile phone was offered during my stay in case I get lost in the red city.
