Very friendly staff: helpful with finding your way around the medina! The breakfasts were wonderful and plenty: we were with 4 children and they were basically full for most of the day. The rooms were clean and tidy and perfect for a family. Riad Marana is in the heart of the medina and easy to explore town on foot from... More

Excellent services, very nice and friendly people. We enjoyed a home-made breakfast and had one of the best dinners on the whole trip! The location is the best you can get, 2 min from the Jemaa El Fnaa square. The atrium was a bit chilly in the morning. The rooms can be a little noisy, since they all overlook the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great experience. The rooms are not spacious, but they are large enough and very comfortable. The staff and owner are incredibly friendly and kind and work really hard to create a perfect home for the guests. The daily breakfast is abundant and delicious. The staff speaks English well enough to communicate;... More

We only stayed one night, but had a good experience. It would have been difficult to find on our own, luckily we had a guide bring our bags and guide us through the medina. On arrival we were offered mint tea, which is typical in Morocco but appreciated. We had arranged to have dinner ahead of time, and we were... More

Nice place to stay. Feel like your are at your home, warm and cosy. Good breakfast and dinner have been served. Location is not far from market square with lot of shops selling all kinds of local products and souvenir. Manager and chef are nice, hospitable. Bad wi fi in upper floor room. Please avoid it.

This Riad in Marrakech was another pleasant stay for us. It was cute and cozy, no frills. The architecture and internal designs of this Riad were stunning. Bathroom was absolutely beautiful with the mosaic tile work. Finding this riad via the alleys in Marrakech was an adventure. We got lost, a lot, even with a map and google maps. It... More

At first we were skeptical about staying at the Riad, given the walk through the alleyways around Place Jamma El Fna. But as the door was opened, and as we walked into the courtyard, to our surprise we had entered into a beautiful guesthouse. We were greeted well by the manager, and escorted to our wonderful spacious room. A room... More

Amazing hotel, situated in the medina of Marrakech. Near the most important places to visit in the city. Excelent service and friendliness of the staff. Very clean and well decorated and offer many services, for example, guided city tours or other places of Morocco. I'll be back.

Sorry to say, this was not for me. I'm a luxury, cleanliness, security and comfort type of person. I like 5 star hotels - if this is you, don't stay in a Riad. I did not know what a Riad was therefore our tour guide stopped by this one to let us see inside. It was pretty cool to walk... More

Right in the middle of the Medina but still close to where you can grab a taxi, a couple of blocks from the Main Plaza it is a beautiful home turned hotel. The lady that owns it is right there to see that everything is in order. Breakfast is included and delicious. Everyone there goes out of their way to... More
