If you go to Morocco, I would recommend you to stay in a Riad instead of a hotel. You can stay in a hotel anywhere else in the world but a Riad has it's own magic. There are only 5 rooms in this Riad so the service is very personal and you do not feel like you just an other... More

We stayed for 3 nights altogether at Riad El Wiam...2 nights at first then went to Atlas Mountains then delayed going to Agadir so that we could have another night here. We loved it...both of the rooms we stayed in were beautiful (we even had rose petal heart on the bed when we arrived as it was our honeymoon...), the... More

We stayed at Riad El Wiam for 5 nights and absolutely adored it! We were picked up at the airport by our driver and taken straight to the main square, where someone took our luggage and led us to the Riad. We would definitely recommend booking a transfer through the Riad - it is very tricky to find for the... More

We booked 4nights at this riad -April 17-20,2014. To our surprised after reading the reviews and arriving to the place we realized we've made a big mistake by selecting this riad!

This is a lovely Riad to stay in. The manager was really helpful with recommendations for trips and restaurants. Some of our trips had an early start so we requested an early breakfast which was no trouble at all. Breakfast was different every morning with a choice of croissants, pain au chocolate and pancakes. The rooms are beautiful and the... More

For our first visit to Morocco this was an amazing place to stay.The Riad helped us to absorb the exciting atmosphere of Marrakech. The rooms are large and extremely clean and comfortable. Miriam, with her help and knowledge, and also the girls serving the breakfasts, which were varied and tasty, made this a very memorable stay.

If you want comfort, romance, peace and quiet, this is the place for you! Our room, the Bahia, was amazing, but all the rooms look nice. The whole riad is clean and typical arabian. The breakfast was delicious....every morning slighty different. The staff were very friendly and Mariam extremely helpful. Even William, the owner, always had time for a few... More

Stayed for a few nights to be in the Medina, & really enjoyed the riad. It is about 10 minute walk from the main square. Lady running the front desk lives in the riad so was always available if we needed any help. (She also stays up till everyone has returned for the night to let them in). Rooms are... More
