Riad Khol
Ranked #277 of 1,194 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2017

Indeed, many reviews are so true about this venue. What a place!

This venue deserves my best recommendation. Riad Khol is nicely decorated, with very Maroccan touch of architecture and interior design. Service is outstanding and so is the whole staff. We love our private roof terrace and we do enjoy sitting on those terraces for all the guests. Absolutely for those visitors who love peace and tranquility.


1. Study your map while getting to this place. There are many nerrow streets that taxi will not take you and you will have to go by your own. Young guys are waiting for you to get lost and then they will "help" you find the way. And they will help you NOT for FREE.

2. Do not react when local "guides" call: "Mister, this is wrong way", or "Hello my friends, I will show you the way", or "no, no, not good way" ... etc. If you react you are in their hands ;-(

3. Terraces at Riad Hotel are great. Take adventure of it.

4. The rooms downstairs are noisy. People having breakfast smoke cigaretts and you will feel the smog inside your rooms since tables are very close to the windows.

5. Kitchen staff is amazing and so is the Riad Khol Management.

6. Please, note that muezzins do their job every day and night. Do not be surprised to hear them praying at 2 am or 4:50 am. Especially one of them is very close to Riad Khol and he has a strong voice. After 3 days I got used to it and could sleep with not problems. I liked it.

Room Tip: Epice is great!

For our stay in Marrakech we chose, at the suggestion of a friend, this riad. we had intense communication via email and it seemed to us that things worked well. wrong! we had communicated our arrival time at the riad for the transfer, that arrived after 3 phone calls and 35 minutes waiting. they did not charge us! but the disappointment on arrival was even greater once we saw the room. I think the photos are good evidence of dirt, poor quality of linen and cockroaches! not to mention the smell of mold and cracked walls. having a bottle of fresh water was an impossible thing. we asked for a carpet for the shower that came last day just because we are very angry!!! our advice for travelers? do not go!!! our advice to the owners? work better!

Good evening we are sorry that your experience to Riad suited you however you had booked the smallest rooms with an extremely low price for 50 % what naturally does not make it these rooms of bad rooms but smaller more cramped and has three times cheaper that the others you arrived at the airport an hour late we were kind enough to be willing to wait you and to offer you the transfer because you were not satisfied I am sorry that you found an unwanted inhabitant in your room but we are in the medina of Marrakesh in a house which set on the 100 years and unfortunately it can arrive it is very unpleasant but on simple request for a cleaning lady the room was immediately completely cleaned in all the historic center and the old houses it can arrive at any time, although we are very very watchful on this matter we made every effort To try to thaw a little bit heavy atmosphere I see that we did not manage in the pleasure to receive you again

First off, like all Riad's in Marrakech, it's not overly simple to find. So once you find the street, remember its No. 121, entrance in an underpass and has two black wooden doors right next to each other. The staff are genuinely nice, the setting is fantastic and the place is immaculate, the photos you see online are actually what it looks like. It has a great breakfast and good air-conditioning. At this price, you would be hard-pressed to find a decent competitor, highly recommended.

We stayed for one night in this riad and there were some good aspects and some bad:

- The rooms were clean, however the shower stopped sometimes and the windows couldn't close completely.
- The staff was really friendly by giving us the route to the center and preparing a breakfast at 6.45 while this is normally not possible.

Advice: Call beforehand to the riad to ask for the costs of a petit taxi, so you don't get exploited. Secondly, ask the owner the pick you up when the taxi cannot bring you any closer into the souks. If you don't, a stranger will offer you to take you to the riad and ask for a ridiculous amount of money.
