We arrived around 9pm in front of the Riad. It is located in a small alley which was not that difficult to locate as it had a sign overhead the alley entrance. Its a quaint old house refurbished and converted into a beautiful mini hotel with a nice little patio. We picked the Bahia Suite which was fit for a...

This Riad was perfectly located, under 5 mins walk from the main square yet quiet enough for a goodnight sleep. Our family room (2 adults and 3 children ages 9, 6 and 3 yrs) was perfect size. Comfortable beds, clean bathroom, pleanty of hot water and a good breakfast (BUT me and my hubby both found a hair in the...

Despite arriving in the middle of the night having been scammed by our taxi driver (not the fault of the riad!) the welcome that we received could not have been better and reassured us more. In a amazing central location down a safe shopping street, it was less than 5 minutes walk to the main square, and was a oasis...

Parking close to the hotel seems impossible, so I hope you travel light. The riad is very exotic, very traditional. We didn't eat there, except for breakfast - a nice breakfast. Rooms are comfortable, there is no windows to the outside like in most riads. There was a bad smell from the bathroom in all our rooms. Service was good.

Far from the madding crowd, an oasis of calm. Lovely and quaint, Anwar was an excellent host, breakfast was a Moroccan delight. The room was clean and spacious for 4 people, beds just a little hard but after a day walking around Marrakech it didn't matter, slept like a log.

Riad l'Arabesque is a nice little riad located in the medina, a few minutes from the Jemaa el-Fna. While it was at fist a bit hard to find, it is a pleasant and quaint haven from the bustling old city. Rooms were clean, breakfast was good and generous, service was also pretty good (the staff arranged a private car for...

Very good value for money and a warm reception at all times by the manager Anouar who spoke English and French, and the two women employees (who both spoke only a little French). It is very well placed in the Medina. Just 5 minutes walk to the Place Jamaa Lafna, souks and cafes or to the Mellah and the Palaces....

I only spent one night at this Riad but it was a pleasant one. I was warmly received and settled into my room pretty quickly. The bed was comfortable, room clean and beautifully decorated. Wifi signal was a little weak and intermittent but then again when one is on vacation one should unplug. Breakfast was extremely filling and they had...

Myself and my husband had a lovely stay in this Riad which is just a 5 minute walk from the main square. The riad is located in one of the many souks in the medina. Breakfast was a variety of hot buns /bread and pastries. Served with olives, jams and dairylee triangles. Fruit juice and coffee were both delicious. On...
