It is a rare intersection, but it does exist. The Riyad Lion Rouge is located where the mythical, the picturesque and the metaphorical not only intersect, but unite. The legendary Atlas lion, which also features on the Moroccan flag, served as the patron saint of the name.

An ode to Orient & Occident
in a prime location

At the Riyad Lion Rouge, carefully restored old buildings meet modern architecture, the many subtleties of which often only become apparent at second or third glance. It is an ode to the Orient and the Occident at the same time. The Riyad is centrally located in the Medina of Marrakech, just 100 meters from the most important Small Square, the Place des Epices, and around 600 meters from the world-famous Grand Square, the Jemna el-Fnaa.

The hotel is centrally located next to the Suk. Cultural highlights such as the Medersa Ben Youssef, the Musée de Marrakech or the Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Art are just a few minutes’ walk away.

So close to heaven

One of the many highlights is undoubtedly the roof terrace of the riyad with an unobstructed, magnificent view over Marrakech and the mighty, white-covered Atlas Mountains. And when the small clouds float and dance under the deep blue sky, they look as if they have escaped, at least for a short time, from a Magritte painting.

Better different
Different better

Long live the difference, long live the different way of experiencing living culture and comfort in an intense way. The Riyad is an oasis of calm, far away from the hustle and bustle. Pausing is the maxim. Among other things, it is underlined by furniture that was specially made on site and by art objects brought from Europe. Another special attraction are the numerous pieces of design furniture by Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Aimes that were discovered and restored in Morocco, all of which ensure timeless elegance in the rooms. Bazaar decorations are banned from entering, and their place is taken by handmade ceramics, for example, which are also specially made. A unique feature is the underfloor heating, powered by an air heat pump fed by solar panels. The system feeds the power supply in summer. We call all this Feelharmonie – it is the sensitive, subtle and sensual pursuit of the greatest possible sense of well-being. Spatial compositions, far removed from frills and fuss.

Reaching for the

The real thing counts. Whether this is rewarded by awarding stars, as is customary in the industry, is not particularly important. The Riyad has its own splendor. Inside, fascinating plays of light with stained glass that light up like sundials in the apartments depending on the time of day. And outside, in the evening or in the morning sky, through the view of the gigantic canopy of stars, which also sheds new light on the constellations. Orion and Sirius send their special greetings, depending on the time of year.

Reaching for the stars – here it takes on a new meaning and symbolic power. By the way: If you’ve acquired a taste for it, you can also search for the distinctive constellation of Leo. As you can see: In this respect, too, the movie theater is under a particularly good star.
