Riad Elisa & Spa is a traditional riad (a Moroccan house with an interior courtyard) in Marrakesh's Medina, which is known for its maze of souks (markets) and red sandstone buildings.
It's a 5-minute walk to the city's main square, Djemaa el Fna, where you'll find "a whole carnival of storytellers, acrobats, musicians and entertainers", according to Rough Guides. The Koutoubia Mosque -- the city's largest mosque -- is less than 10 minutes' walk from the hotel.
Facilities at the hotel include a spa with vaulted ceilings and a traditional Moroccan hammam (steam room). A path of candles leads to the exclusive treatment rooms with a range of pampering spa therapies available (fees apply).
Breakfast is served in the Max Restaurant, where guests can choose from a French, English or Moroccan breakfast, or a combination.
At lunchtime, the restaurant serves Spanish and Moroccan food. Later, relax on the hotel's Rooftop Terrace Bar while sipping a cocktail.
The property was decorated by the prestigious interior designer Tomás Alía. All 14 suites feature traditional Moroccan interiors and overlook the main patio. There's also free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
