My fiance and I will be coming back to spend one thousand and one night at this place, because this December we could only stay for 5 days.This riad's architecture and interior are infused with the most exotic historical significance and serve as a classic example of Oriantalism. We had an amazing experience and have been treated like a royalty,... More

I spent 7 days at the Riad Jenai. Not only the tasteful interieur was awesome, but also the variety of breakfasts I got - it was different every day and only if I had a wish for something (I fell in love with crêpes berbers) I got it again, but also and especially the attention of Lahcen was extraordinary.

Getting there is through a maze - be sure to call the riad and get someone to meet you. We did not, However, once there - it is very good, and close to many sights and places. The staff is great, our room was good and the price was fair. We had two wonderful breakfasts on the roof terrace -... More

Especially enjoyed the provision of the authentic argan oil toiletries. Housekeeper visited twice a day, can't complain. Even folded our clothes twice, yes two times (once in the morning... More

Stayed here at the beginning of January as part of my partner’s 40th celebrations and it really exceeded expectations. This is a stunning riad right in the centre of the Medina by the Ben Youssef Mosque and a swift enough walk to the main square of Jmaa El-Fnaa. The place itself is decorated in a traditional Moroccan style (lamps, fancy... More

Wonderful and charming little hotel in the middle of the Medina. Works more like a guesthouse with only 4 guest rooms, and hosts on the premises; Yannick was very welcoming, always helpful and kind. Everything is within walking easy distance: 5min to the souks, 15min to the main square Jemaa el Fna, 20min to the YSL house etc... Staff was... More

Stayed here for 10 days in November. Maybe a bit too long in the city but thanks to Yannick and his staff, Lahcen and Khatja, we had an amazing time. The Riad is situated just north of the souks (a very short walk) and right next to Ben Yousseff Medersa and the Marrakech Museum. Walking down a maze of smelly,... More
