This gem is a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of the medina. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They truly want you to treat the riad as your home while you are there. And enjoy dinner - the food is superb and plentiful. We truly enjoyed our time there.

I can tell you all about the wonderful staff who are so warm and welcoming that you feel at home within 10 minutes of arrival. I can tell you about the location, which despite being really in a twisty wee network of backstreets (I suggest that you book the airport transfer) is actually just perfect and convenient to everything in...

We stayed at several Riads on a 2 week long trip to North Africa and this is by far the best one across service categories - facilities, food, service etc. This was our first Riad experience overall and "Riad Ambre et Epices" certainly left us spoilt for the remainder of our trip. We were a little hesitant initially given our... More

This was our first time to marrakech and this was the perfect place to stay. The Riad is tucked away in a peaceful area off the busy roads and within walking distance of the Medina (10 mins) Inside, the Riad is beautifully calm, clean and modern yet still traditional. The service was faultless and Patrice (the Riad owner) was extremely... More

We had high expectations of this Riad from other trip advisor comments but these were more than met by the wonderful service given to us all staff but most especially from Ibrahim who was outstanding in his service and help at all times. We were given the highest quality of service, attention, and care throughout our stay literally from breakfast... More

Cannot fault this place, staff ( Patrice, Abdul ) are more than helpful, great base for the Medina and Souks, the nearby Henna Cafe is a must as all proceeds go to charity ...food very nice and reasonable. Visit stall no.1 in the square for top class authentic street food. And the excursions from the riad are amazing.

We have been to Marrakech many times, but this was the first time we had stayed at this riad. We stayed twice in two very different rooms. Although we preferred the more traditional room in the older restored part of the building both of the rooms were excellent in their own way. The criteria depends on whether you prefer modern...

We stayed here for the second time in March 2015 and it was as good as the first, if not better. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and attentive. We stayed in the modern part of the riad now joined by an arch through so you don't have to go outside anymore and the room was comfortable and spacious. Everything... More

A superb Riad which was superbly placed for the centre of Marrakech and the friendliness and service was superb. We stayed for four nights in March 2105 and this Riad did not disappoint. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. The manager Patrice was incredibly helpful and we felt totally at home in our first ever... More

We booked the Riad Ambre et Epices for our second stay in Marrakech and we fully enjoyed our stay. Everything worked so well and Patrice the manager is very efficient and answers emails in no time. We had our transfer from the airport organised by Patrice and were very pleased as we would otherwise not have found the Riad. It... More
