While Le Ryad boasts incredible interior decorating, this cannot make up for what it lacks in other areas. First and foremost: every interaction with the owner was awkward and stilted. After any request for information, she would stare at us as if she couldn’t comprehend why would be interested in doing said thing. She seems not to have the personality... More

Dear guest, I am surprised of your comment on my behavior and I apologize. I must have been stunned by the thunder if I was so rude to you. I try to help everyone, whatever their envy; I am not here to judge what people want to do, but my job is to try and understand one's wishes and give... More

Maybe we were unlucky but our experience was not as good as some of other reviewers. Our room was small and on the 5th floor (no lift). The Moroccan style I’ve always liked but the hotel looks a bit old and rundown. The pictures on the web don´t always match with the real thing. The cleanliness could be a bit... More

Good afternoon. We are sorry that you were disappointed. Some websites where Le Ryad appears present the photos mingled, which does not give an accurate vision of the hotel. On our website , the photos are categorized room by room, and photos of the standard rooms on the highest floor clearly show that they are not large. We indicate as... More

My husband and I stayed three nights in this very, for Swedish, exotic hotel. The hotel is very well situated, within walking distance from train station and the harbour. Our orange room on first floor was big, well equipped with tasteful furniture. Very comfortable bed! Breakfast is delicious with inspiration from france and Marocko. Madame is very helpful and can...

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Le Ryad while in Marseille. That gave us 4 full days to explore Marseilles and to venture out to the nearby cities of Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, and Arles by taking advantage of the rail system and train station about 1/2 mile away from the hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable overlooking the... More

Thank you Bob for your comment. I am glad that you are back at home safely. I like that you illustrate how Le Ryad is convenient to explore Marseille and the cities around, since it is so close to the station. And regarding the early breakfast the day when you left, it is just a pleasure to be helpful and... More

What a lovely place! I can't think of a thing I didn't like - although the stairs (I was on the fifth floor) might be strenuous for some visitors. Le Ryad is a few steps away from La Canebiére and a few minutes from le Vieux Port, but still very quiet. I never felt the location was unsafe. Garden and... More

Le Ryad is in a perfect location to explore the heart of Marseille, beautifully decorated, and reasonably priced. The owner was very helpful and accomodating. Our room was quite spacious although noisy at night since it was on the street side. However, when we closed the windows it was very quiet. There are "ladies of the night" on this street... More

Dear TalibaJamila, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I see that you come from Morocco, and it makes me even more happy that you've appreciated your stay. Regarding breakfast, I can understand that you find it onerous, but there are fresh fruits and freshly squeezed oranges and if you eat everything, you will wait several hours... More

Stayed for a long weekend followed by a few days of business. Didn't want another night in a predictable famous name 5-star hotel. True - there is no lift (yet!).

Thank you Stephen for your lovely comment. I cannot promise that there will be a lift one day in this hotel, because it could ruin the charm of the typical staircase. But we are always ready to help you carrying your luggage to your room. I will be very pleased to welcome you again. Warm regards. Walérie More

Stayed at Le Ryad in a mini suite for two nights and it has a lot going for it as a boutique hotel: the room was incredibly spacious, very bright and clean and beautifully designed (and the bed very soft and comfortable!); the service was impeccable; the garden in the back was a lovely and peaceful place to enjoy coffee...
