I stayed at Riad Aliya at the beginning of December. From the moment they opened the door I was made to feel at home. My room was beautiful and inviting, the roof terrace was a great place to relax and the Riad itself was a haven from the hustle of the street. But the best bit was the hospitality. The... More

My partner and I visited the Riad Aliya between 01 July - 08 July 2014. We went based on the reviews on trip advisor and the cost. The Riad Aliya is a beautiful little spot located 10 minutes from the heart of the Medina and the jemaa el fna. It's located just off a few sides streets in the Kasbah... More

Three ladies working there two very helpful especially the lady who often cleaned the room but I can't remember her name. One is not very smiley but I think off hand manner is just her way she did help a lot with dinner reservations. There is no security in as much as there are no locks on the rooms and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved every second. The rooms are authentic, clean, comfortable and above all else so peaceful! Every day our room was cleaned and tidied so it was a great place to return to after a long day of exploring. The roof top terrace is (again!) so peaceful, comfortable and a great place to spend...

The riad is nice and quiet. We stayed there for 2 nights and we were the only clients there, so we felt as if its our own place. The girls that work there are very friendly specially Hyat, she received us with a warm welcome and she was always smiling. The breakfast was fine. It is standard in all the... More

As has already been said, this Riad's location is great-right in the Kasbah but still quiet and just a few minutes walk from the Djama El Fna Square. It was a real oasis of calm after the mayhem of Marrakech. Its traditional style around the inner courtyard was just what we expected and were looking for. Our first floor room... More

They had messed up our booking and we had to change rooms after the first night. Breakfast was plain and a bit boring. One day there was one small yoghurt, but only one - we were two. Room was small, bed was horrible, my back is still hurting.... Bathroom was very dark, and water pressure so low at the zink... More

The decor, building, staff and general feel in this Riad were just wonderful. It was definitely the best part of Marrakech for us. Loved having the plunge pool in the courtyard (I wouldn't recommend staying somewhere without a pool in their summer!), and very few Riads in the Medina have pools, so it was a real bonus. And the roof... More

This riad offers the best location, in the Kasbah district, 10 min walk to the Djama El Fna Square, enough distance to be your safe house away from the buzz and fuzz of this vibrant city. The Riad Aliya facilities are great, specially the brilliant and very friendly staff.
