I loved my time at the Riad Shama. It was quiet, cool, beautiful and relaxing. Staff were attentive, breakfast was nice, room was fantastic. The roof terrace is the perfect place for a glass of wine while to sun goes down!

I stayed here overnight last week, whilst on a motorcycle tour of Morocco. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were clean and food was excellent. Although being April the pool was chilly! After the madness of the Madina it's a real surprise to walk through the door into the peace and quiet of the hotel. As were...

maybe not the fanciest of places in the medina, but has lots of character and the most amazing spa treatments ever! Good location with taxis just outside the alleyway and plenty of stalls to keep people watchers happy. Lovely rooms with the most amazing shampoo and bath lotions. Staff on the whole very helpful. will do almost anything you ask...

Excellent service they arranged everything for us: excursions, restaurants, taxis. The bed and pillows were amazing, best I have slept in a long time! Bring your soap and shampoo though, as I couldn't figure out which one was what :) I recommend it 100% thanks to all the personnel, they were very nice and helpful.... And the massage was great!

Best experience and a unique sort of stay, warm experience and very peaceful. Went in December 2015 around Christmas time and never expected to see Christmas decor in Morocco. Hotel service is really genuine, they had emailed us beforehand about the dinner event plan on Christmas night, after a long day of traveling from Casablanca and then walking around Medina,...

It's amazing to think that through one small door you find this Riad, but once there it is a well run, efficient oasis in an otherwise hectic and sometimes stressful old city. The staff were excellent, happy to do anything (within reason) such as go outside and get you anything you need food / drinks wise if it was not...

This was our first visit to a riad in marrekesh. It was incredible to enter this oasis after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of the medina. The rooms were beautiful, very unusual. There were some housekeeping issues, so don't expect the slickness of a 5 star hotel. The male waiting staff were very friendly, they gave advice...

We arranged a transfer from the airport which was 15 € , the price locally should be70 /80 dirham but you wouldn't necessarily know that when you arrived. It was good to have someone waiting for us at the airport and not have to worry about getting to the Riad and walking the last bit to the door .Really lovely...
