The Riad looks amazing, very mystic, made a fabulous impression and the rooms are spacious and clean. We were very welcome and the owners always nice and helpful. After noisy days out that was extremely pleasure to relax there. Mornings breakfast was traditional and explosion of tastes. Freshly squeezed juice, pancakes, tonsils and strawberry jam I would never forgot ......

This has been a very positive experience in a kind of lodge very different to the ones I'm used to. The riad is right in the middle of the crowded shopping area (5 minutes walking from Jamaa el Fna), but you hear no noise at all. The staff is very professional and friendly. Rooms are very huge and amazingly clean....

Riad Samarine has one of the kind location in the old part of Marrakesh, close to the main square and central market. Despite that hotel is very calm. I'd like to also prize hotel staff. They are all very nice, friendly, helpful and flexible if you ask for something. The hotel cooperates with experienced city guides and you can also...

This is a really basic hotel. Large rooms, there are about six in total. No smoke alarms. No telephones in room. No pool. Has a mini fridge with sodas and water, reasonably priced. Breakfast I'd amazing considering its continental. Staff are superb. Nothing is too much trouble. However, it is in the middle of the market and each and every...

The Riad was beautiful, spotlessly clean and fun as is in the heart of the Souk. Staff were very friendly and incredibly hospitable - nothing was too much trouble - would recommend - you will not be disappointed if you stay here!!

This Riad is really worth it to stay. We stayed in a very big and clean room, very nicely decorated as well. Indeed not easy to find the first time but that counts for 90% of the Riads in the Mediana, the best place to stay if you want to be near the famous square Djemaa el Fna and the...

From our first interaction with the lovely people at Riad Samarine, every detail was taken care of, from the taxi pick up at the airport, to escorting us from the riad to our difficult to find restaurant on NYE! The staff working there are extremely helpful and no request is too much. Breakfast is fresh and plentiful, and the rooms...

Very nice stay. Clean and nicelly decorated. Smily and very friendly staff, helping with our questions. Not that I used it but there was a nice tv and safety box and lots of amenities in the room. I will repeat, hopefully very soon!!!!!

The room and the breakfast were good people are kind but dishonest. Actually most people I met in Marrakesh were dishonest. They try always to rip you off and they all think that you are dumber than them. BE CAREFUL with the exchange rates. They play with it so that it always benefits them. For example, we booked an activity...

This was by far the nicest place we stayed in Morocco. A true gem in the huge Marrakech market! The location is a bit tricky to find the first time, but we hired someone to take us there. (He only wanted a small tip for his help.) After the first time, it was easy enough to find. The riad is...
