We had a great end of our Moroccan holiday with my friends at this lovely riad. The riad is well worth the price : fantastic food, excellent service, central location, attentive staff, comfortable styled rooms overlooking the pool. It is definitively a true oasis in the middle of the vibrant old city. it has been difficult to made up our... More

We ended our vacation to Morocco by the city of Marrakech. We stayed at Olema, a small hotel in the very old historic city. Once who has never experienced such amazing city cannot understand other special feeling. We also had a great chance to stay at Riad Olema, a traditional Moroccan home run as a hotel. It is a comfortable... More

We never had a chance to travel to Morocco before, this is thus our very first experience in the country. We trusted our friends advising us to experience a true Moroccan lifestyle by staying in a traditionnal and authentic riad. We choose Olema and we were more than happy. First of all Sandy welcomes you with the traditional mint tea... More

Beautiful forniture, extremely gentle staff, very good organization, I would defenetely recommend it. We arrived late and they made us dinner despite the hour and the special requests of my father, which they met perfectly. An Oasis in Marrakesch.

A very good riad, in one of the best locations in Marrakech, right in between the old city center and the ville nouvelle. Loved the roof terrace with the jacuzzi, as well as the great staff! Fully agree with other reviewers that 4 days in Marrakech is more than enough.

Stayed for 5 nights after taking weeks to decide where to stay from the hundreds of Riads available. Would definitely recommend staying in a Riad rather than a resort type hotel outside of the medina so you get to really experience morocco. Would also strongly recommend that you use the riad's airport transfer service (€15) or you would never find... More

An oasis in the madness of Marrakech, fantastic and attentive staff, friendly bees, and a great atmosphere. The old town is an assault on your senses, and it's nice to see the contrast with modern morocco with funky restaurants and bars. The Sky Bar at the Pearl Hotel is not to be missed.....a expensive swim, but great view and ambience.

A wonderful Riad in the old part of Marrakech finished to a good standard. The level of service from the staff and manager were second to none, a truly top class team. We ate in the Riad one evening and the food was fabulous.

To date this is the best hotel we have stayed in. The location is spectacular and you really feel like you are in the middle of an ancient Morrocan city. Prayer calls from the nearby mosque adds to that impression. The rooms, food and service is outstanding. Dine at least once in the hotel, the food was some of the... More
