We only stayed for one night on our last night in Morocco but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I loved this riad's traditional decor, every detail was handcrafted, there was a calming water fountain and wonderful scents running through the halls. Our room had a massive bed and massive bath tub and plenty of hot water which can't be said for... More

The taxi dropped us at the end of a busy lane and took us to a dark alley way where the riad is situated. The big wooden door of the riad opened and we were transported to a different world. We were welcomed with mint tea and sweet nibbles. The owner and the manageress greeted us and we felt at... More

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 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! Upon arrival early afternoon the manager Miriam did not even say welcome! She escorted us to our room and asked if we wanted to take care of checking in... More

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.
