We spent 7 nights in this absolute oasis of tranquillity known as Riad Mariana. From the very first moment we set foot in the Riad we were welcomed and made to feel very comfortable by everybody. The staff are absolutely first class and were always so attentive - down to every minute detail of our stay. Phillipe has built an... More

The food was amazing! The staff went above and beyond. One of the gentlemen even spent his time off showing us around the city, after working all night long. It was possible to schedule just about anything through the Riad from massages to henna. The ladies that work here are the nicest people I've ever met when traveling. The staff... More

Wow! What else can I say to sum up this wonderful place than wow! Well, I'll try and elaborate a little. Firstly, I'm sure you will all know that it's rare to make the effort to compliment somewhere/something, and all too easy, and more likely to air grievances. Given the tiny proportion of not so kind reviews for this wonderful... More

We had such a lovely stay at this Riad it's hard to know where to begin. The staff are so very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Their English is very good, and they are able to help and advise on all aspects of your stay. The building itself is very beautiful; we were upgraded to a suite with... More

First time using Tripadvisor to choose hotel. Very disappointing and could not understand how did it get the award. Also why there were so many praises from other travellers. First and the most important reason (no one spoke of this clearly in other reviews), this Riad was located almost 1 kilometer from the entrance of walking street (900 meters from... More

This is a typical Riad, the rooms are a good size and the shower is one of the best in Morocco. As with most Riads they can be noisy but just like being in someone's home. The staff were most helpful, we stayed three nights and they even had breakfast ready at 6am on our last day as we needed... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in November. I booked one of the better rooms (sorry I cant recall the name now). Its a good location, just 20 minutes walk down into the heart of Marrakech, but just out of the way enough to be quiet although the early morning call to prayer could be heard if you happened to...

Right place to stay, exquisite food from Fatima, and nice spot in the medina close to everything but quiet in the same time, competent and kind personal, wonderful cat, nice terrace and rooms, what can I say, I hope you will enjoy the place as much as I enjoy it. I already miss it, and I will come back Inch’Allah.

Inside the very plain exterior is an oasis of calm. The roof terrace is a lovely place to take tea and refresh after a busy day at the souks. Philippe went out of his way to be helpful, providing us (two ladies of a certain age) with an escort to a wonderful restaurant (Pepe Nero) which he booked for us.... More
