Stayed here for 3 nights in July and had a great time. Marrakech was quiet as it was off season so just ourselves in the Riad which was lovely. We were picked up for free from the bus station and airport as we ere coming from different places which was fantastic. The Riad is beautiful, really comfortablly decorated with gorgeous... More

The Riad Ma'ab has a great location within the medina in Marrakech, so you are entrenched in the vibrant life of the souks the moment you emerge each day. It is beautifully decorated in a traditional style with lots of local and regional flavor. Simple yet sublime. The riad is a peaceful oasis from which to begin (and end) your... More

This Riad was highly recommended by both my daughter and nephew who stayed here a few years ago. It exceeded my high expectations! It is located very near the square where you will experience the culture, excitement and craziness of inner Marrekech. The riad is authentic and beautiful. It is comfortable, clean, spacious, and decorated with local lighting, rugs, blankets,... More

The riad is really nicely decorated and in a good and safe location. Interesting and tasty selection of local foods for breakfast each day. Hussein (the manager, who also built the riad) is probably the riad's best asset - on the first night because the riad was empty, he took us to where he normally goes for dinner and then... More

I cannot wait to return and was sad to leave! The Riad Ma'ab is a quiet retreat within the Medina walls. Coming in from the Medina you walk through the doors into a refuge of quiet tranquility. Handsomely decorated and furnished. Beautiful modern bathrooms and individually decorated bedrooms. Each day started with breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Fresh squeezed orange... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the fantastic Riad Ma'ab, and from the very beginning I felt incredibly welcome. We were picked up by the airport, and the fantastic manager Hussein gave us a tour of the medina and answered all of our questions about the city. The owners were also staying there at the time, and they... More

Exactly what we needed for. Family Christmas break. Comfort, great service and yet informal. Hussein and Zina do all they can to be helpful yet unobtrusive. Would definetly return. This Riad is well positioned for all that Maarkech has to offer and the airport pick ups were appreciated.

From start to finish, our experience with this riad was exceptional. Booking and prepaying was easy. (They even had a room for 3 people available! Not necessarily the norm for a riad.) The airport pick up was wonderful. We've been to Marrakech many times, and after a long journey, the last thing you are interested in is haggling for a... More

My partner and I looked long and hard to find a Riad that would be our home for over a month while we were in Morocco. We were very wary of staying anywhere for such a long period of time without having any prior knowledge of the property. John (The Owner) made things very easy from the start and communicated...

Just exactly what we needed in Marrakech, lovely building and all mod cons but also character. The staff really made our stay though, Hussein and Sana are really helpful. Oh and breakfast was carefully prepared.
