Humble little Riad well priced operated by a very organized French lady - nice spacious rooms and a nice rooftop terrace for an evening drink - good breakfast and lots of tea - staff helpful with outings - 15 min safe walk if you want to hit the Souk - easy to find as it's right next to the city...

This Riad is brilliant - my partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and then moved on to an all inclusive resort so that we got the best of both worlds. The staff are friendly and helpful. On our last day I met the owner and it was clear she has a passion for this Riad and making it... More

Marrakech was our first stop in Morocco and Riad Alwachma was a very pleasant stay away from the rush of the city. Ahmen (sp, sorry!) was super helpful and hilarious. We loved his happy attitude. He got us settled in and ready to check out the city. We did get massages there which were really nice after a long travel... More

Finding this little hotel was a gift. Sitting on the rooftop in the evening it is hard to imagine the hustle and bustle just outside the front door. All you can see is treetops and rooftops, and all you can hear is a distant hum from the city, then the call to prayer. From gracious welcome to heartfelt goodbye, the... More

A great Riad within easy walking of all the sights. We stayed for two nights and wished our stay had been longer! The staff are all extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Comfy bed, a wonderful roof-top terrace for breakfast and excellent food. I had the best tajine of my stay in Morocco here (tajine bérbère). I would... More

Firstly, an apology for this late review. We stayed at Riad Alwachma a couple of months ago, and have just been very busy since getting back. Secondly, let me say that although this Riad is beautiful, and it is, it is the people who make the difference. Jerome, Helene, Driss and Ameen are just the nicest, most helpful and hard... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Riad Alwachma. The staff are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable, and the Riad itself is a little oasis of calm amidst the bustling city of Marrakech. The roof terrace is fantastic, and eating breakfast there was the perfect way to start the day. The room we had was clean and spacious, and... More

This was the first place we stayed in during our trip and the thing that stood out, here and in all the other places, were the fantastic staff - they were always pleasant, helpful and cheerful. At Alwachma the manager even went to the trouble to get the car hire company we had booked with to come to drop the... More

This place is gorgeous and great value for money compared to other good quality riads we looked at. The whole property is beautifully presented, from the central courtyard with fountain to the rooms to the roof terrace which is great for dining or just sitting in the sun. We had 3 rooms, one for my wife and me and one... More
