Spent 3 nights here on the way to climb Tobukal, and nothing was to much trouble. Rooms clean and comfortable and food fantastic. Would recommend, and it's a great location for the main square or to sight see

We stayed here for 5 nights and we wouldn't have been happier. The staff were INCREDIBLE, they went above and beyond to make our stay as great as possible and were so friendly. The Riad is stunning, simply faultless. The food was insane, we are vegetarians and our favourite was the vegetable lasagne which we had twice. Due to the...

Just got back from a five day stay, we were well looked after by the staff in this friendly & welcoming Riad, in the heart of Marrakesh. Our room was clean and nicely presented, along with rest of the communal areas in the Riad. The restaurant offers traditional Moroccan food cooked to a high standard, for both breakfast, lunch and...

We are sorry you felt the need to write this review. Your first review was removed by Trip Advisor as it breached their guidelines. As our staff explained to you locally your stay coincided with the busiest ever period Marrakech has seen due to the COP22 world climate summit. Many hotels suffered from severe overbooking during the time of your...

We caught an early flight from Paris and arrived around 9:00am and everything was pretty uneventful until we closed in on the medina area of Marrakesh. We did not know what to expect and were prepared for nothing to totally surprise us!! However when the guy arrived with his cart for our luggage and beckoned us to follow him into...

My two sisters and I stayed here for 4 days and would definitely come back again. The staff were friendly, polite & helpful.

Just spent two days at the Riad Africa. We are so impressed! The Riad is well located, close to Jeema al Fna square and the Souks.
