We stayed here for three nights in August, we were collected from our transfer taxi by Ibrahim. We cannot recommend this Riad highly enough; the staff went out of their way to help us. We received a very warm welcome which is always delightful when travelling. We needed a little help with getting our bearings, the manager was able to... More

Stayed here with bestie for out first trip to Marrakech, had a warm welcome from the staff who also met us from the pre-arranged pick up. Thought we would never be able to find our way but with the guide from Ibrahim and help from map it was easy. Our room was in the annexe part of the riad and... More

We booked to stay here for 4 nights through British Airways. We arranged for airport pick up by the riad which is recommended as if would have been impossible to find within the winding streets otherwise. Although our flight arrived early, once we called them to let them know, they sent our driver to pick us up straight away. All... More

The Riad Ambre et Epices is a wonderful oasis for which to base your trip to Marakech from. The staff are experts at customer service, the Mgr Patrice, his assistant Ibrahim made us feel so welcome and it really felt like a home from home. The Riad is enchanting, with great air con which we really appreciated. The roof terraces... More

My wife and I went to Marrakech for the first time. We loved the city and the atmosphere. And we also loved our Riad. The location was really good (10 minute walk to the heart of MK), in a place that always seemed absolutely safe for tourists. The only caveat is that for the come back to the hotel late... More

A beautiful riad in a great location - just a 10 minute walk from the main square in the medina. The riad in general is beautiful and the room we had in the modern part of the riad was lovely. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was amazing! Particularly great service from Abraham who... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, booked through BA holidays. It was a perfect hideaway, down a maze of alleyways. Once through the busy, and sometimes, smelly souk, you are greeting by a peaceful & tranquil courtyard, where upon checking in are served mint tea and asked to fill out the paperwork. You are then giving a tour, shown your... More

We spent 4 nights at Riad Ambre et Epices in May 2014. We traveled with family and stayed in 3 rooms in the more traditional side of the riad. After reading online reviews regarding the more modern annex, I was worried I would be disappointed with our rooms. However, I ended up liking the more traditional side of the riad... More
