We loved Riad Awa! It was like being in someone's house, but with privacy. The staff were ALL so friendly and welcoming, they were really helpful with booking excursions and recommendations etc. The riad is kept very clean and it's in a great location in The Medina. Close enough to walk anywhere but far enough out of the hustle and... More

I spent 3 days and 3 nights at Riad Awa for my birthday earlier in July. What a lovely place! The staff were very welcoming on arrival and were very attentive in helping with activities, restaurants and generally making the stay very comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The secret escapes offer we had allowed... More

Just arrived home after spending 2 days and 2 nights at the lovely Riad Awa. It is perfectly located, and a beautiful oasis in the city. The whole place is calming and cool, the rooms are generous and well designed and the roof terrace is amazing, breakfast there was one of the highlights. The staff were brilliant, can't rate this...

Browsed through most of the Airbnb and Booking.com listings before choosing Riad Awa for a 3-nights stay in the Medina in Marrakech. Riad Awa lived up to and exceeded my expectations. I was looking for something modern, well designed, roof top terrace and completely hassle free. Riad Awa was this and more. The staff had arranged with airport transfer which... More

Riad Awa is a gem. The rooms are all very personally decorated and also very quiet. We had heard that Riads have problems with the water systems but we had no such problems. The rooftop pool and area is perfect for hanging out after a busy day in the Medina. The staff is brilliant! Kind and willing to help with... More

We stayed here in February 2013 and had a truly fantastic time. Perfect location. Friendly staff - couldn't be more helpful (thanks Mohamed - top man!!). Great rooftop breakfast. All in all a fantastic little oasis in the middle of everything. Couldn't rate it more highly. Thanks.

Were had a lovely meal at the riad on our first night, which was delicious. When staying here once previously I didn't meet Henri but did this time. Once again I would recommend this riad to...

Upon arrival to the Riad, we were greeted by Mohammed, who did his best to make us feel welcome. We were informed that Henri, again, wasn't present at the riad and was back in France. I wouldn't mind this but we had already emailed with concerns prior to the visit and were assured that it would be all fine. We... More

Ideally situated in the Kasbah disctict, Henri & his lovely staff welcomes you at Riad Awa with warmth and simplicity. The house has been renovated with taste and has great art works on display. The house is pristine clean and full of little details that will make your stay truly unforgettable. The rooftop terraces and swimming pool add real value... More
