My husband and I had a lovely four day stay at the Riad. Rooms are very clean; breakfast is simple but freshly made every morning. We arranged a transfer with the hotel which is possibly not the cheapest option but definitely hassle-free and highly recommended! We also had a meal on arrival which was delicious local cuisine (again recommended). The... More

Just returned from the Riad Ailen and one word -fantastic ! We found the location to be perfect for us as it was fairly near the gates , if you need a taxi or are getting collected for an excursion, but is a lovely walk to the square as we walked through milling streets of local activity soaking in the...

We have enjoyed a wonderful stay here, the staff are so friendly and helpful, always smiling. Easy walk through the medina to the main market square, to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city, cheeky local children laughing and saying hello!

I stayed with my 16 year old daughter for two nights. We booked through British Airways who were - as ever - efficient and good value. The riad is typical of the hundreds of riads in Marrakech. Clean, cool and decorated in the usual attractive style. The little pool was great for cooling off in after a hot day getting... More

Pre-book your transfer with the Riad! It is in an area where you would get completely lost on arrival and shown ( several times ) by locals wanting a lot of tip to walk you around the corner. A car cannot go to the door so you need to be shown. The walk to the square is 20-30 minutes and... More

Indeed, we advise customers to provide a transfer at the time of booking as in the medina it's difficult to find your way. Street names are not always indicated. Also in the medina vehicles can not park in front of the riads. For transfers from the riad Ailen reserved, drivers take you from the airport and accompany you right up... More

Like others i would recommend airport transfers as its a little hard to find. Location?.............please research where this riad is!!. Its inside the medina walls and in a... More

Having just returned from a 5 night stay at the Riad Ailen I thought it only fair to say that I was very pleased with it. Nyama & Yunice were both welcoming and helpful. The place itself is an oasis of peace and calm once you get through the front door. There is a central courtyard with 2 rooms on... More

The best thing about this Riad has to be the staff - all of them made us feel very welcome during our stay, talking to us every day and offering us Moroccan tea and advice whenever we needed it. They were so welcoming to the point that on one evening when we didn't want to go out Yunis went on... More
