La Sultana Marrakech is located in the historical kasbah area in the medina of Marrakech, a stone throw from the main attractions.

The Bab Agnaou is the most beautiful and impressive of the gates in the entire city ramparts. It was constructed in the twelfth century using local stone as the ceremonial entrance of the sultans into the kasbah. The gardens and pavilions of the Royal Palace begun by the present King's ancestors in the seventeenth century dominate the view to the east from roof terraces. The evocative ruins of the sixteenth century Badi Palace are also seen from the roof terraces and can be visited by taking a fascinating walk through the kasbah's winding back streets.
