Having been to Marrkech before, we were keen to get a riad just outside the souks. We were very pleased to find this one and the prices seemed reasonable. When we arrived at the airport, the taxi driver was still waiting, which was great as the airport had closed temporarily just before we landed for a VIP, leaving us circling... More

A most warm welcome given at this gem of a riad. We all had a fantastic time in Marrakech and Riad Ambre Et Epices is a perfect place to relax. Calm and tranquil. with gorgeous roof top views.The feast of food was amazing. Worth noting it on the map (or the non G3 app of Marrakesh), and clocking landmarks, to... More

Our late night walk from the cab down narrow, somewhat malodourous alleys only further highlighted the oasis of Riad Ambre et Epices. Food (if a little pricey) was fantastic, breakfasts were an impressive variety of local pastries, excellent coffee and juice. The roof terrace proved a very welcome suntrap to retreat to from the busy medina and service was superb.... More

Pure Marrakech in a unique setting... Beautiful and authentic Riad with friendly staff. Enjoy your breakfast on the terrace and pamper yourself with a visit to the hammam, because it's worth!

We stayed two nights in Marrakech on arrival and one on our way out after travelling round. Riad Ambre et Epices was a lovely welcome and a great way to round off the trip (with a suite on the last night). It's a fairly new riad, so was a bit difficult to locate, even with local taxi drivers! Our first... More

A corner of perfection to recover from the chaos on the streets! We were so pleased to have such a lovely bolt-hole to return to, with excellent staff and open areas. Our room was fairly small, but it was perfect for us, and with all the other spaces to relax in it wasn't a problem. The plunge pool provided refreshment,... More

We just returned from three nights at this glorious Riad. It is away from touristy area in R'Mila, a short walk to the Fondouks, where you can see master craftspeople at work. It is also close to the Sooks. Staff were always available to help us, even ordering us a birthday cake for our daughter. Service was amazing. It made... More

We came to Marrakech for only two days and stayed at this charming Riad 15th & 16th Dec. We had the Orchid room on the top floor - very compact but fine for a short stay and the bed was extremely comfortable. We only had a small bar of soap provided so were glad we had packed shower gel etc.... More

Beautiful, pieceful and clean riad. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not too far from Djemma el fna. Breakfast nice, but could be a little bit more varied, maybe som fruit and youhurts etc

The riad is stunning with lots of little attention to detail and wonderful staff who bent over backwards to help us with any requests. We travelled as a group of 3 and had a large enough room to accommodate us. The bathroom was absolutely gorgeous! We were lucky to have had the roof terrace to ourself one afternoon and enjoyed...
