Stayed for 3 nights at this Riad. The room was lovely, the staff were lovely, Patrice was ready to help us at all times and didn't get annoyed when we kept asking to use his computer! (maestro cards do NOT work in Marrakech!). We got picked up from the airport, compliments of the Riad. Overall had a fantastic time, it... More

we had a 3 night stay here. Its in a great location but ask them to meet you from your taxi - they can also arrange airport transfers for you as its hard to find the first time as it really is hidden. Once you have found your way there once its fine. The rooms are very well equipped. We... More

I don't normally write many reviews but Patrice was just so helpful and the riad was so brilliant I wanted to write about it. I emailed Patrice to ask to book us an airport transfer after reading other reviews. He kindly did this so everything went perfectly. He also booked us a day in the mountains which was so lovely...

We were met at the train station (despite the train being 2 hours late!) and were driven to a point in the medina where one of the staff of the Riad met us and we proceeded on foot from there. It was dark and I was worried that we would never find our way out!!! When we arrived at the... More

Beautiful property, stylishly furnished with many Thai accessories. Excellent, friendly service from Patrice, the manager.As other reviewers have stated, you will not find this place on your own so book a reputable transfer from the airport. Sadly, when we visited in October, the weather wasn't good enough to take advantage of the small pool or roof-terrace. We took advantage of... More

Approached through a maze of unpromising alleyways this Riad is a hidden gem. Beautifully designed and furnished with superior taste, Ambre et Epices is elegant, peaceful and welcoming. Outstanding service and customer care from Patrice and his staff, delightful food and comfortable beds combine to make this the perfect place to stay near the centre of Marrakech. A tip -... More

Ok, so the surprise to this Riad is the long walk through the labyrinth of Marrakeches alleyways. You finally reach a rather scruffy dead end, feel almost dissappointed if not worried, you go in through a little door and suddenly, hey presto you are in a little palace. Beautifully designed, roof terrace, small dipping pool, hammam, courtyard, everything and more... More

We have been made extremely welcome by Adil, Patrice and Abdul and cannot recommend this Riad highly enough. Everything is excellent! A real oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle. Just one tip - book an airport transfer to get you there - you will never find it without assistance the first time.

There are many Riads in Marrakech, and they aren't all that dissimilar. What sets this one apart is the location, tucked far back in the quiet residential streets of the medina, and the food. Our meal here was amongst the best we had in the country, and certainly in Marrakech. If you stay here, brush up on your French, as... More

We spent a magical week in Marrakech walking every day in the Medina getting a feel for the place and people. Both were above and beyond expectations as was the riad. Patrice and his staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful, the breakfasts were varied and tasty and the riad was SO pretty. I was particularly taken with... More
