The taxi dropped us at the end of a busy lane and took us to a dark alley way where the riad is situated. The big wooden door of the riad opened and we were transported to a different world. We were welcomed with mint tea and sweet nibbles. The owner and the manageress greeted us and we felt at... More

If you go to Morocco, I would recommend you to stay in a Riad instead of a hotel. You can stay in a hotel anywhere else in the world but a Riad has it's own magic. There are only 5 rooms in this Riad so the service is very personal and you do not feel like you just an other... More

We stayed at Riad El Wiam for 5 nights and absolutely adored it! We were picked up at the airport by our driver and taken straight to the main square, where someone took our luggage and led us to the Riad. We would definitely recommend booking a transfer through the Riad - it is very tricky to find for the... More

This is a lovely Riad to stay in. The manager was really helpful with recommendations for trips and restaurants. Some of our trips had an early start so we requested an early breakfast which was no trouble at all. Breakfast was different every morning with a choice of croissants, pain au chocolate and pancakes. The rooms are beautiful and the... More

For our first visit to Morocco this was an amazing place to stay.The Riad helped us to absorb the exciting atmosphere of Marrakech. The rooms are large and extremely clean and comfortable. Miriam, with her help and knowledge, and also the girls serving the breakfasts, which were varied and tasty, made this a very memorable stay.

If you want comfort, romance, peace and quiet, this is the place for you! Our room, the Bahia, was amazing, but all the rooms look nice. The whole riad is clean and typical arabian.
