Even though the hotel isn't far away from the main square, its location in the back alley makes it hard to find it at the first time, so my advice is to ask the manager to email you a map, otherwise you will be forced to pay some local to guide you. The hotel is composed of two parts, the... More

Me and my partner stayed at Harmattan for a weekend, room named Essouira, and we both loved it. We were offered tea in the courtyard during the quick process of checking in. The room was lovely, high ceiling, beautifully blue and tastefully decorated - simple yes but had everything we needed for a short stay. Powerful shower was greatly appreciated.... More

I've travelled to 80 countries and it's the worst hotel I've experienced. Major issues: 1. Extremely inconvenient location. Not possible to find for first-timers. Local gangsters, who asked for "service fees" by coercion, followed while entering the narrow streets. Hotel receptionists took that for granted, saying that "it only happens when you first arrive". 2. Very irresponsible service (if any).... More

Just a terrible stay! Receptionist didnt speak a word of english! The room smelled like public WC, bed was smelly as well, heating didnt work, no internet in the room or on the same level. When I saw breakfast I was really happy, looked good, however I ve found a long nasty hair inside my bread :D the only plus... More

I am actually amazed at all the good reviews this Riad had. It is as if we had visited a completely different riad than the ones described by other people! We visited Riad Harmattan for a 2 night stay near the end of August. We had (to put it lightly) a lot of issues. 1. Dismissive Staff The location, as... More

Just to start by saying that overall I enjoyed my stay at this Riad. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the owner always had a genuine smile when we saw him. The Riad provides a haven of calm and relaxation compared to the madness and mayhem of the main square. Breakfast was included and consisted of fresh local... More

3泊しましたが、部屋はとてもひろく、清潔で居心地は素晴らしかったです。オーナーはフランス語しかできないようでしたが、とても親切でいつも笑顔で迎えてくれました。もちろん英語が堪能なスタッフもいます。エアコンに問題があったのですが、一言いったらすぐに見にきてくれ、使い方を教えてくれました。私が泊まったときは一泊4000円弱。この値段でこのクオリティーはきっと誰もが大満足できると思います。場所はわかりにくいので、迎えを頼むか、節約派の方は地元の人に200円ほど払い連れてもらってください。(それ以上は請求されても払う必要ないかと。多くて2ユーロです。)ちなみに道案内にチップを要求されて困ったとよく聞きますが、基本的にこちらからその辺のお店やレストランに探している場所を聞けば、そんなことはないと思います。親切に教えてくれる場合が多いですよ。I stayed for 3 Nights at this Riad. As The others have mentioned here, it is hard to find. But it's just like the other riads in marakech. I asked a local to take me there by paying 2 euro. It worked quite well and was much better than not finding it and walking around for looking time. The owner,... More

Hi just come back from a long weekend. We took a cab from the airport to Place Jemaa el Fna and then used the online website map to find the Riad...with ease and at night with 2 kids in tow. Whilst it felt a little daunting at first, it was clear that you were very safe what ever time of... More

we were dropped of by a taxi driver in the middle of nowhere on a busy main road and told to speak with a man with a trailer who would help us locate the Riad. it worked out about 10 mins walk through the market square, but then down some serious back streets. The man then wanted 200 EURO (not... More

Decent breakfast and comfortable beds. We were on the rooftop room and it would be a nice place to sit if you wanted a break from the busy streets. The riad was quite difficult to find in the dark so ended up paying some locals to show us the way. Alternatively it's down the street after cafe France, left after... More
