If you're looking to stay near the Medina, this is an excellent riad. The rooms were small, but charming and very authentic. The location was great- short walk to the main square and on a very exciting street. The rooms themselves block out a lot of noise and the riad is such a oasis. The service was EXCELLENT. The people... More

WE came to Riad Nesma for an all girl hen party weekend in March, and we all loved it! The staff are so helpful and gave us directions, booked tables at restaurants etc. The rooms are nice, and they supplied a simple but sufficient breakfast each morning. The roof terrace was lovely for an evening chill. WE had a lovely... More

This is probably my favorite hotel in the world (so far). Absolutely beautiful. The staff is extremely nice and helpful - they even met us at our cab to help with our bags and lead us to the Riad. Great breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Good location and a clean, calm, air conditioned oasis to come back to after walking... More

The guys on the front desk were the highlight - SO nice, friendly, sincere and willing to help in any way. The place was also spotless and a very handy five min walk from the main square where all the action is, as well as being beautifully quiet AND the cheapest place we stayed in. Oh, and the roof terrace... More

Fantastic location - short walk to Jamaa el Fna. The guys that work at the front desk are outstanding - so nice and helpful, which was genuinely appreciated since I was traveling alone, and do not speak French. The only improvement I could suggest is that my room was very dark - it was beautiful, and spotless, but sometimes a... More

We loved everything about Riad Nesma.The location is excellent and the house is beautiful. Rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. Breakfast on the lovely terrace overlooking the Medina with the Atlas as a backdrop is amazing. The food is superb and plentiful.Best of all is the staff. The receptionists speak excellent English and are the most helpful, cheerful and friendly... More

Really loved this place. Very welcoming staff helped us relax immediately. The room was very clean and comfortable with aircon/heating. Nice en suite with an amazing shower. The central location was ideal - we often wandered down to the main square for really good food from the market stalls.

Location It's just inside the medina and is a 5 minute or so walk to the central square of the medina. So you're near the action, but not right in it. That makes it easier to bring in your luggage, BTW. Entrance It's a winding stair up to the tiny lobby so it's better to have someone carry your bags.... More

A fantastic little hotel in the medina, right in the heart of Marrakech. After an hour or two of people trying to sell you stuff, it's a really brilliant place to come back and have a lovely calm (and free) pot of mint tea on the roof terrace. Gorgeous traditional Morrocan furnishing - full of character - with the rooms... More
