This is a very tastefully renovated (actually rebuilt) Riad. Michele is an excellent host who, as well as being responsible for the design, knows Marrakech inside out and is great at recommending places to visit which aren't necessarily on the obvious tourist list. The staff are all very friendly and they are clearly a happy team. Indeed, we liked the... More

It was our first hotel in Morocoo and we was very surprised! When we arrived we were welcome by Michele who show us the riad and gave us tips of Marrakech. The rooms are beautiful, the staff is extremely friendly and the breakfast was amazing! We had some problems with the hot water but everyone tried to help us, so... More

This was my 4th visit to the wonderful Riad Assakina and there is nowhere I would recommend more highly! Michele and Grant always make every visit so special and are always able to recommend new restaurants and places to visit, making the whole experience of Marrakech much more fun and less daunting than it could be. The staff are charming... More

The Assakina Riad is well situated in the old Jewish Quarter and provides easy access to a number of the palaces that should be on your “to see” list. Parking is near by and if you are doing this for your first time..we found you can trust your car to the parking lot attendants - they will watch your car... More

Rock_Critic, Owner at Riad Assakina, responded to this review

Our thanks to this reviewer for his many positive comments. The two slightly negative points are perhaps due to a lack of familiarity with the nature of Marrakech riads. Specifically: 1. Our rooms range in size from 17-36 sq.m, depending on budget (this reviewer booked the smallest). Marrakech is an ancient, busy, crowded city, so space here has always been... More

We stayed here about a year ago and it was truly an excellent experience. Michelle, Grant and the entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. From moving us to a bigger room, arranging dinners, and directing us to the best places to shop in the souk, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. The hotel is... More

This is one of the favourite places I have ever stayed. Michele and Grant were so hospitable. They knew everything about Marrakesh and were more than willing to help with any request. They obviously love Marrakesh and also love running the Riad. We felt like friends of their's coming to stay. The place itself is beautiful with incredible attention to... More

I have just returned from my second visit to the wonderful Riad Assakina in Marrakech. Why did I go back for a second visit? Simply because I had such a wonderful stay the first time and wanted to show my husband this " little gem" in Morrocco. We were not disappointed - it was just as good, if not better,... More

I cannot recommend Riad Assakina enough. My wife and I stayed for 5 days at this wonderful raid after racing the Marathon des Sables. Needless to say, I needed a good rest and was pleasantly surprised by the high level of attention by the hotel staff. Special thanks to Grant and Michelle, the riad owners, who went out of their...

In a city that could seem overwhelming, the staff at Riad Assakina couldn't have made us feel more comfortable and welcome. The room and hotel are beautifully decorated and the rooftop terrace is the perfect way to relax after a bustling morning in the souks. Michelle and Grant equipped us with fantastic suggestions for restaurants, museums, cafes and day trips... More
