Staying in a traditional riad is definitely a "must do" when traveling in Morroco and Riad Argan is an excellent choice for this experience, a quiet retreat in the busy medina of Marrakesh. It's a perfect place to stay and also relax. We could enjoy nice breakfasts at the terrace and drinks in the patio at night. Also, the location... More

Central location. Rooms individually decorated with good facilities and very clean. Lovely roof terrace for breakfast and relaxing. We had dinner there one night and it was superb. Owners could not do enough for us - showing us around, pointing out the best places to visit and eat, booking trips and taxis from and to the airport. We cannot praise... More

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here, the riad is on a quiet street just a few minutes walk to Jema El Fna the main square. The owners, a French couple, were very friendly and really helpful - eg helped us booking dinner and even escorted us there when we weren't sure how to get there. The room we stayed... More

Tucked away amidst the alleys, just about 10mins walk from Jemaa el Fnaa Square, is this hidden treasure. Francois (the owner) was an amazing host. She met us at the riad on our first day and we had a wonderful conversation. She even walked us through the alleys to the square (so we won't get lost), recommended a few restaurants... More

Our first time in Marrakech and this Riad was a real find. We were collected by car from the airport by arrangement with our hosts Francoise and Bernard and thank goodness as we would never have found it amongst the twisting alleys. Our welcome from them was so warm and friendly that we felt comfortable immediately in this special place.... More

It was a wonderfull place for our stay : incredibly quiet, comfortable, elegant and clean. We were extremely well received by Françoise,Bernard and the staff Habiba, Mahassine and Sufian. The riad is very close of the main square and easy to walk... More

We visited last September. The riad is simply amazing. All of the rooms are comfortable and well decorated. The roof top is great to relax after a long walk in Marrakesh. It is a great escape from the hustle and bustle! Francoise and Bernard were wonderful. Francoise sorted our bus tickets and taxi's for us so didn't have to worry... More

All you would expect of a Marrakesh riad. Traditional and tasteful decor, cosy rooms, an intimate feeling and great location close to Jemaa el Fna but still very easy to find. What made it special was the attitude, helpfulness and kindness of the staff who all went out of their way to be of service. Francoise gave us a very... More

Francoise, the owner, was welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The room was a bit small, but well appointed and clean. Breakfasts on the roof (with an awning to cover you) were sumptuous and "traditionally" Moroccan. I wanted to buy my granddaughter a small piece of jewelry to celebrate her birthday and to commemorate the trip to Morocco. Francoise took me... More
