Just back from 3 days in Marrakech. This Riad was just what we were looking for. Traditional, beautiful, cosy, clean,comfortable, friendly, easy location and great value. This lovely typically Moroccan Riad has its star: Ibrahim. A discreet but attentive young man who speaks very good English and French and who will try his very best to make your stay most... More

This riad needs better attention. The minute you walk in, you feel immediately the lack of supervision and management. Towels (supposedly white!) NEED to be replaced. Cleanliness (everywhere: rooms, hall, kitchen) is very mediocre to say the least. Staff smoke in the riad!! There is a serious problem with bees in the terrace, makes it impossible to enjoy any meal... More

Great Riad!!! Everything was awesome, and Ibrahim was the best host. Took really good care of us and helped with everything. Food was extremely good, super warm-full room and a cool terrace to chill out. Thanks for everything, Hope we meet again.

Lovely, traditionally decorated riad with such attention to detail which made it a really great home from home. Ibrahim's hospitality was amazing and attentive, making sure we were ok all the time, making us mint tea. He would even check venues to make sure we got there ok since taxi drivers are a little adverse to looking at maps resulting... More

The location was off the main street down some small alleyways. Through a beautiful wooden brass studded door was an oasis of calm and wonderful typically Moroccan decoration and furnishings. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, attended to daily by very discreet friendly staff. The roof terrace provided a quiet, comfortable place to soak up the hot sun and... More

I'm just back from spending 4 nights in Riad Sofia. When we first arrived we were well looked after by Hakim (also known as Jimmy Hendrix). Hakim gave us some mint tea while we were checking in and then guided us down the road to a good restaurant which was somewhat expensive but it was useful to get our bearings.... More

Riad Sofia is like an oasis of peace and quiet in the noisy and never sleepping Marrakech. The hoste is very hospitable and kind. The riad is clean and tidy. We've loved the terrace and the pool! The employee name Hakim is very helpful and friendly. We've enjoyed our stay!

Absolutely loved my stay here! It's in the heart of the medina but as soon as you step inside it's completely silent and tranquil. The only noise I heard were the calls to pray. Staff were lovely although they speak limited English however they take the time to help you understand. I was offered complimentary mint tea every time I... More

Although we booked Riad Julia, upon arrival we were assigned a room in Riad Sofia, just around the corner (same price, met our expectations). The room was great, location convenient (15-20 min walk to Djemaa el Fna), very polite staff and a good breakfast. We even took a swim in the tiny swimming pool in the courtyard :-)

My boyfriend and I had a lovely three-night stay at the Riad Sofia. We arrived via taxi at night, which was a bit intimidating. Without a map it was impossible to find, unless you have explicit directions. Locals will swarm you asking if you need them to take you to where you're staying, which will require payment. We gave someone... More
