We felt the staff, especially the ladies were friendly and always did their best to help us. They serviced our room every day and they made us English tea (provided by us) in the afternoon. Which was so welcome after the madness of the medina and souks. The journey from the airport was an adventure in itself, it certainly would... More

I get the feeling that a lot of Riads within the Medina are pretty similar. They are all beautifully decorated and provide yummy breakfasts of specially prepared crepes and jelly. What made Riad Cherkaoui a great place in my opinion was the hospitality. During our stay, no one spoke any English and my boyfriend and I know hardly any French... More

We spent 3 nights at this riad, then came back for another night before our flight home. The location is good - an easy 15 minute walk to the main square through the souks. The bedrooms are comfortable, and beautifully located around a central courtyard which is a welcome respite from the madness of the Marrakesh Medina. The breakfast varied... More

A magic place to stay, in the centre of Medina, very very close to the souk, 15 minutes walking to La Place (if you don't get lost!). The dinner is good but expensive. You can have a fantastic Hammam in a Riad of the same owner, not far from there. The transport from and to the airport is too expensive!

As true Europeans and travelers without experience in Africa, we were shocked about the chaos in the streets around the hotel - it was true cultural chock. But when we entered the hotel riad, it was unbelivable peace and harmony, with warm, friendly staff and romantic atmosphere. We felt that we were part of Morocco in the hotel.

Beautiful old Riad in the medina and a short stroll to the Place. Decor is very Moroccan and not pretentious. Wonderful room and facilities, especially for the price. Excellent staff and service. A selection of scrumptuos home cooked breads and beverages each breakfast. Would definitley stay here again and recommend to everyone.

I was nervous to visit Marrakesh alone - ( young, North American female), but they took good care of me at the riad. The staff was *beyond* helpful, the hotel was beautiful, and the other guests were very pleasant as well. I was impressed and would gladly stay there again. However- there was no internet (the staff happily took me... More

My sister and I stayed 4 nights at this riad and enjoyed it very myuch. Refreshing little pool. Good breakfast and excellent service from our hosts Halima and Hafid. Have eaten at the riad twice. Be sure to ask the price before you order your meal. A 20 minute walk to the Place Jeema but very close to the souks.... More

The Riad Cherkaoui was my girlfriend and I's safe haven during our 5 day stay in Marrakech. It is an especially beautiful, calm and quaint little Riad that is clean, comfortable and offers a nice breakfast to get you going each morning. For us, it was a much needed place of respite from the maddening, bustling bazaar of ancient Marrakech!... More
