In the heart of Marrakech next to the El Fna Square, this authentic and peaceful Riad is really well located between all of the Marrakech hotspots such as the 'must see' Souk in which you can find hidden little treasures surrounded by a fantastic Maroccan atmosphere. Very friendly staff that will be happy to help with any request, carried our... More

What a lovely, authentic riad. Nice breakfast. All round great experience. My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights (we were in morocco for 5 nights in total, 3 in Marrakech and 2 in Essaouira) The manager Hussein was just fabulous, nothing we asked was too much. When we arrived he was waiting on the Main Street to collect our... More

A beautiful riad in the Medina and only minutes to El Fna Square. Helpful and pleasant staff. We wanted some downtime from trekking-bus-riding and booked for 6 nights. Peaceful, quiet, central and very well priced. I have subsequently recommended it to a friend who took her adult children and also enjoyed it.

We traveled to Marrakech at the end of February 2015. The weather was lovely. Our flight arrived early so we called the Riad Barroko who arranged a taxi transfer for us for €15. I'm glad we did this as it is very easy to get lost in Morrocco and the Riad Barroko is down some winding streets (which are luckily... More

Barroko is an attractive and old Moroccon Riad set in the heart of the Medina only 15 mins walk from El Fna Square and the vast and colourful Souks. Very peaceful retreat after the noise of Marrakech. All the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. We felt very much at ease. Comfortable food, adequate breakfast, and lovely dinner on the...

We had booked 2 single rooms through Thomas Cook but ended up in one double room. Riad claims error by TC, TC claims error by Riad ... anyway we were told it was fully booked and all hotels in town fully booked (New Year) - and therefore no other solution. Not sure about that .. but now waiting for reimbursement... More

I booked this holiday for my partners birthday through BA. I was a little nervous about what the Riad would be like as to get there the houses and buildings (like most in Marrakech) look a little bit rough. Biggest tip...ask the Riad to organise your taxi transfer, as you won't find it! This also saves the stress of finding... More

The good - clean enough with some friendly female staff.( Hassain was lazy and useless) A decent B&B standard set in the 'real Marrakech' alleys.Breakfast of bread and jam was adequate but not 4 star as promised. The not so good- not 4 star hotel if that what you had booked and paid for!. Not safe for kids with broken... More

This was originally booked via BA Holidays as an add-on to the flight taken, so was carefully selected from a small list of options. Reading the reviews beforehand we were looking forward to our first night, however that was where it all ended unfortunately. We contacted the riad directly and arranged a airport pickup/transfer to the riad through Jawad. Upon... More

We found this peaceful hidden bed and breakfast just right for a short break inside the medina.French speaking,very quiet, cool, not licensed for alcohol.Keep in mind this is a typical Morrocan guest house.If you want 5 star then go to La maison D'Arabe which is truly fantastic. Big tip.....Get the Riad to organise your transfer,you won't find it ! Also... More
