Saïd gave us the greatest warm welcome. After enjoying Maroc's famous minth thea, we were guided to our room, cozy, beautiful decorated. The next morning we had a good breakfast, with good coffee and fresh orange juice. The Riad is close to the Market and the Souks. We stayed here for 5 days.

We are still staying at this truly special riad which is a traditional Moroccan hotel loatated in the medina (market where21 century, meets medieval and kitch in an atmosphere of anarchic chaos) but the hotel provides an oasis of calm. It's small rooms are decorated in traditional style and are well maintained and spotlessly clean, as are all public areas.... More

We stayed at this Riad for four nights. Location was brilliant about five to ten minutes to the main square. Our triple room was spacious. The beds were clean. Bathroom was adequate too. Breakfast was various fresh pastries with coffee or mint tea and fresh orange juice. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We also asked the riad to organise... More

Hi, we stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, guys working there are just amazing, friendly, helpful and very kind. First experience with Marocco wasn't the best one, as soon as apt transfer left us on the small square ( 1 min of walk from Riad) our bags were taken by random person with "rikscha" the small cart with two...

Fantastic place, super friendly, clean, great breakfast, and a close and pleasant walk from all the action as well as easy to find - really a pleasure. They were remodeling the upstairs outdoor area this summer when we were there, so should be even more beautiful up there now! Abdul, the front desk attendant is fantastic.

This is a very nice hotel, it was a great value, clean and nicely decorated. Dinner at this hotel was excellent. We had dinner at the roof, nicely set up and very peaceful. The staff was great, helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this place however you have to be aware that it is close to the grand place... More

My husband and I first came to Marrakech 3 years ago and stayed at Riad Nesma. We loved it so much that we decided it was the best place to return to when we decided to get married in the desert of Marrakech.

I visited with a friend and slept in a double room. The riad is typical moroccon style. The room was big enough, clean and overall nice. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with hot mint tea and lots of information and advice about the nearby area. Breakfast is served on the "rooftop" with a nice view on... More

The service is amazing and really friendly ! The breakfast was great with yummy orange juice and eggs (more than what other places might offer) ! The riad itself is not amazing, small and simple nothing fancy about it . The idrissides room was a bit small for 4 adults but Great value for the price we got :)
