La Sultana, opened back in 1998, was the result of a long partnership with the historical monuments organisation and the vision of an excellent interior designer, and remains one of the best places to stay in Marrakech.
Perfectly located at the entry of the Imperial City's walls and just next to the Royal Palaces, La Sultana consists of five riads designed to feel as if guests are living in one of the city's old palaces. Concealed on the other side of small, decorated wooden doors there are large, spacious and quiet residences where the windows look onto the central courtyard and there are roof terraces where for meals and sunbathing.
Each of the 28 bedrooms and suites has its own individual decoration creating luxurious and very comfortable room - a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the hot Marrakech streets.
The restaurant at La Sultana serves traditional Moroccan specialities and depending on the time of year, meals are served either on the charming patio or the rooftop with stunning views of the Atlas Mountains. For those interested in learning more about Moroccan cuisine, the hotel also has morning cooking classes.
The Sultana Spa is one of the best in the city, complete with two traditional hammam steam rooms, Jacuzzi, sauna and cabins where guests can enjoy excellent massages after a hard days haggling.
La Sultana Marrakech is the perfect blend of riad (traditional, intimate, tucked away in the medina) and hotel (slick service, space).
