The pictures on the website do not do this riad justice. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The attention to detail in the building and the interior decorating is perfect! That sums up the way the four day visit went with Michelle and Grant as our hosts, it is like visiting your favorite friends. As first time visitors to Marrakech, we needed... More

This place is just brilliant. Not enough stars on this website to rank it properly! 7 star luxury at least. The ambience is wonderful, you'll be relaxed as soon as you walk in an sink into the ample sofas. It's the details that make the difference, the decor, fixtures and fittings all bespoke - designed and commissioned by the owners... More

Riad Assakina ....Beautiful, comfortable, clean and restful rooms with an excellent , attentive and pleasant staff . Owned and managed by Michelle and Grant makes riad Assakina a home away from home. The food is excellent and served with a smile.

What a haven ! After the excitement and hubbub of the Medina and souk, returning to the tranquillity of the Riad Assakina gives exactly the right balance for an eventful yet wonderfully relaxing holiday ! Thanks to Michele, Grant and all the staff for their welcoming approach, friendly advice on visits to places of interest and general care and attention... More

My stay at this raid was flawless! The service is fantastic, I felt like at home. :) Breakfast was amazing and enjoying a glass of wine by the pool was just pricesless. All the people working at the hotel were always ready to help, give directions and make our days in Marrakech perfect.

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
