Riad Joya, nestled in the old town (Medina) of Marrakech, is a beautiful, spotlessly clean, and culturally-infused small hotel that offers the epitome of excellent service! First-time visitors have no real idea about the place, its customs and challenges -- and the fabulous professional staff at this riad (ALL of whom speak at least four languages!) didn't just direct us...

Noori and his staff take the term "innkeeper" to new levels! We felt so taken care of, in an unobtrusive way..It was the perfect choice for us in Marrakech. We were looking for small scale, quiet luxury..and that's exactly what Riad Joya provided us!

We stayed here for my 40th birthday present and what an exceptional treat this was! The staff were outstanding and catering for everything we needed and more. The level of service was way beyond anything I have experienced. It was not only responsive and proactive but it was unobtrusive and respectful. Sometimes high level service can feel over the top...

I would like to share my emotions about Riad Joya. I was staying there in 2014, 7-10 November. Joya means happiness and this feeling was with me during the stay! In Russia we say "which name you will give to the boat - the same way it will be crusing", I guess the management knew this expression before giving the... More

Tucked away from the Medina in a small alleyway some 650 years old, a door opens into a small slice of paradise. The riad is modern and lovely, even as traditional architecture is everywhere around you. The staff is well trained and entirely focused on service. We did not find better food anywhere in the city. When we ventured out... More

Just returned from our first visit to Marrakech and thorougly enjoyed our 4 day stay. We chose Riad Joya because it was close to the central square and its located within 5 mins walk. The Riad Joya was just perfect in every way. Our room was simply but tastefully furnished. The bed was comfortable and a well supplied bath room.... More

Where to start? The stand out feature of the Riad is the staff & the service. All of the reviews are true! Nordouine & his team knew what we wanted before we did. From the moment we arrived & were presented with mint tea & pastries to our departure which involved a small detour for some last minute shopping, our... More

A little gem of a Riad perfectly located within easy reach of the main square but a haven of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the souks ... Noureddine works incredibly hard to make his guests feel welcome, telling you from the moment you step inside the Riad that you should feel at home. The rooms are beautifully... More

Riad Joya was a great place to stay in Marrakech. The service was absolutely impeccable and the rooms were large and comfortable. Riad Joya is in a great location within the city walls, close to the main square, and within walking distance or a brief cab ride to all of Marrakech's main attractions. The staff is overly helpful and will... More
