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

My friend and I have just returned from a fabulous few days in Marrakech staying at Riad Sofia. The Riad is in a great location, all the attractions and the square are walkable, and there are some great restaurants nearby. The Riad itself is a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrkech, the rooftop terrace is gorgeous and... More

Went with my boyfriend for a 4 night stay and we had a lovely stay. The riad is very beautiful and in a great location - less than 15 minutes from the main square. The rooms are large and comfortable, the ensuites are really lovely and the pool is good (unheated, but in 32C+ weather, it was welcome). The staff... More

I am quite impressed with the riad. The patio and resting areas are absolutely stunning. The rooms are very clean and very nicely decorated. The only downside is the access to the riad, through a quite dark and "skeetchy" street, but anyways is Marraketch, and we did not have any problem whatsoever, so for me, once you get used to...

Raid sofia is simply lovely, wonderful breakfast on the roof terrace, great place near to centre, wonderful staff. The Riad is just outside the medina so perfectly located for a quiet nights sleep. each room decorated with individual style. It is also great value. I've stayed here twice and can highly recommend it. Enjoy!

My mother and I returned from Riad Sofia a few days ago. I can say the instantly friendly manner greeting us was one of comfort and warmth. Instantly we felt welcomed and regarded as friends/family. The staff made it quite clear we were home from home, and offered a service to meet our needs. Very helpful information and sound advice... More

I stayed at Riad Sofia from the 25th November 2014, for three nights with my three friends and we all really enjoyed our stay! The Riad is very clean and confortable, wi-fi works perfectly, breakfast is gourgeous and for italian people to say that, in a country outside Italy, it is very unusual! But the most perfect thing is the... More

Riad Sofia or how to experience the beauty of Marrakech to the fullest... The photos describe pretty well the beauty of the Riad Sofia.The stunning terrace, the pool, the rooms, its location within the paved and narrow heart of Marrakech...perfectly comfortable without losing a hint of authenticity!

I was in two minds as whether to rate this place as average or good. The Riad itself is wonderfully decorated. It was so colourful with a pool just outside our room and the roof terrace was a great place to relax away from the bustle of Marrakesh. We used it often. The room we stayed in (I shared a... More

Both my boyfriend and I stayed at this stunning Riad at the end of April for 4 nights. It is centrally located, and we never felt concerned walking through the narrow streets as all the locals were friendly and kept themselves to themselves. It would have been hard to find, but, Omar ensured we had one of his staff to... More
