We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip. Managed to get a taxi from the main bus station for 60 Dirham (not the cheapest but best we could do on the day). The taxi can't go all the way to the door so you will need a map or an address written down to show some... More

Lovely little riad, the staff were friendly, especially the security guard, who was very courteous. The room was basic, which was fine for what we wanted, kept cool all day so was nice to come back after being in 30 degrees all day. The bathroom needed updating, drain in shower took a while to drain away, and the toilet took... More

We stayed for 2 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful enough. I can't help noticing that most of the people who think the staff are rude seem to also expect them to speak English so would have had trouble communicating. You're in another country. If they came to your country and expected to be able to only get by... More

I stayed here for 5 days. Lady of 65. Excellent staff, comfortable beds. Ten minute walk to the main square. Residential area down quiet alleys a bit off putting but the unprepossessing front door opens into a charming reception and eating area. I felt very secure and comfortable here. Water always nice and hot. Roof terrace excellent. I think bad... More

We booked via the hostelbookers website and paid the deposit to the website before having a confirmation email regarding our booking sent through. Everything was in order and the room successfully booked. However, when we arrived to the Riad late at night (which was difficult to find as the map on their website was incorrect) the owner told us we... More

We were greeted by a cleaning lady who only spoke french. We went out for some lunch after we'd checked in, but when we came back the manager wanted us to move to another Riad because he had double booked the room. We were vey tired after a long flight and we'd already unpacked so we didn't feel like moving... More

We were in the riad Al Tainam in March of the last year and we didn't regret at all. It is located in the authentic area of Marrakech, Medina, and was very close to the square Jamaa El Fna. The rooms were original and everything was very clean, Also, thanks to the owner, we had the opportunity to book a... More

This Riad is lovely and clean ten minutes from the square and the staff were so friendly. We found it to be great value for money and would highly recommend it as a great location away from the chaos in the town square. The hotel arranged a trip for us at a cost of £65 euros each to the desert... More

Do not believe the nay sayers, this is great value. Clean and comfortable rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, good location in the real Marrakech, 10 minutes walk from the main square. Like most riads it is hard to find the first time so we would advise booking the airpport transfer with the riad. We also booked our camel riding... More
