The people in the Riad are dedicated hostess and smiling away all the time. Its always possible to have the extra, like a good glass at evening in sunset at the rooftop bar. Relaxing in the rooftop bar and listening to the crazy market sounds in background, was something I enjoyed. Stylish modernized, clean rooms with aim of lemon/vanilla gives... More

After much searching for the perfect riad, we selected Riad Abradabra and in particular the Madame Mim loft room. The airport pick up went smooth depsite the horrendous queue for the passport control. The driver dropped us off at the edge of the big square (by this stage it was 9pm and dark). We were met by a chap with... More

I don't normally write reviews but I wanted to let everyone know that this is a safety zone - a breath of fresh air from the crazy markets and busy streets of Marrakech. I recently stayed there for 5 nights with 3 other girls - Hicham took care of the entire time - they walked us to our spa -... More

Completely rebuilt and modernised traditional riad at just 3 minutes from the famous Jemma Fna square where you can relax and scape from the warm, noisy and smelly medina. The owners, Bruno and Ines, have supported us with good advices for travelling not only in Marrakech but other places in Morocco (desert, Eassaouira, etc) . The nice staff makes you... More

I don't usually write reviews but since this place deserves a mention here it is: I arrived to Riad Abracadabra on a Sunday night from a very late flight to a lovely homemade dinner that was beyond delicious. As a matter of fact, every single meal I have had at Abracadabra, including breakfast, has been unforgetable (I have to add... More

The gimmicky name of this riad at odds with its level of sophistication. This is a lovely boutique hotel ideally located close to the Jemma el Fna, but down a quiet street inside the medina. It's so private that I'm not sure we would have easily found it had it not been for the elderly porter who met our taxi... More

My wife, eight year-old daughter, and I made our first visit to Marrkech in March. From the moment we were met at the airport until the moment we left the Riad Abacadabra - with heavy hearts - we were welcomed with open hearts, good humor, and unmitigated kindness from the Abacadabra's outstanding staff. The Riad itself is beautifully restored, quiet,... More

I cannot say enough about the amazing service from the moment I booked the hotel, until the time we left. Ines was fantastic and providing information before we even arrived so that we could have our arrival and first day planned and make the most of our time. We decided to book the transfer from the airport, as I had... More

Have just returned from a wonderful stay at the riad Abracadara with my two daughters, aged 13 and 17. We were looked after splendidly and the staff could not have been more helpful. The riad is tucked away down a side street just off the big square so really close to all the action but still very peaceful and quiet.... More

We were met just off the town square which was absolutely chaotic, followed our contact through the bedlam, narrow streets & market until we came to an innocuous door. Open sesame!! Bruno Olivier, the very handsome & charming Spanish owner greated us warmly and it was perfect from there. Lovely room, fab breakfasts on the roof terrace, lovely cozy fire... More
