Me and my friend stayed here for a week and was greeted with a friendly smile and a nice cup of tea. "Said" the guy working here made our stay so pleasant and we felt just like home. This is close to Djam El Fna and a clean and quite oasis. The food if you choose to eat in is... More

Perfect location in the Medina, five minutes from Jemaa el fnaa. A quiet haven in the middle of the buzz of marrakech. Said was so helpful and friendly and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was perfect and changed from day to day. We had dinner at the riad one night and it was just perfect. Big portions though... More

We were lucky to stay at the Rhiad for 7 nights. It has the wow factor as soon as you walk in and is the perfect retreat after shopping/sightseeing. Sied is the manager and what a character he made the holiday, it was our first trip to Marrakech and he couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. The Rhiad is... More

Having spent 3 nights at the Riad Elias, it has been fantastic to return to the Riad for a wind down and glass of wine. To think that when you walk out of the Riad into the medina and back into the hustle and bustle that Marrakech is, yet behind the door is peace, tranquility and an excellent and welcoming... More

This delightful Riad is well worth locating, at the end of a narrow alley. We were tipped by other travellers that this was a place of perfection and we fully agree. We arrived by bus in Marrakech and were taken for the proverbial ride by the taxi driver who took us to the Place El-Fna, and then we had the... More

Beautiful Riad in the centre of the Medina! Great place if you want to be in the middle of the action to experience the "real" Marrakech and yet feel like in a quiet oasis as soon as the doors are closed! We were amazed by the service we got from Said and the Team. The room was simple but clean... More

Arriving in Marrakech is like landing on Planet Zog! It's such a culture shock. It's hot, dusty, full of exhaust fumes of weaving motorbikes, has scenes from Biblical times alongside youngsters with mobile phones. Riad Elias is down an unprepossessing little side street but as soon as you are invited it, it becomes a haven and home. The staff..Loubna, Said... More

I disagree completely with the "disappointing" review. We were a group of 11. My room was super - roomy, clean, quiet, warm (when we were shown how to work the heater. November), and with very good facilities. Not all rooms were so large and well-equipped. The manager and staff were friendly and helpful. They were not intrusive, but were available... More

We first stayed at the sister riad, Riad Karmanda which was beautiful, clean and welcoming but this was even more beautiful and more upmarket, it had a small splash pool and a gorgeous sun terrace. It is a great escape from the busy city. We stayed in a suite which was comfortable and elegant. Definately worth the money. The staff... More

I stayed at Riad Elis for 4 days with two other photographers when I was there photographing a wedding outside of Marrakech. The staff at Riad Elias was VERY helpful and friendly. Excellent service! Their WIFI connection didn't work properly at the time but they sorted out so we could use their personal internet connection the same day. Charming! Beautiful!... More
