We only stayed one night at this small Riad in the heart of the Medina. It was very pleasant we had a lovely Morroccan breakfast and Fabien couldn't have been more helpful, he went out of his way to show us the way round the Souk and made sure we were heading in the right direction the next day.

We really recommend this riad. It's amazing how quite life is here in the middle of the medina. Very nice staff and typical Moroccan rooms. Nice little cat. The breakfast is great. We would come here again.

My room was upgraded at no charge and was spacious with a lovely bathroom and very cool and quiet. Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay right in the centre of things and... More

Discovered on Tripadvisor Riad Ghemza was by far the best place I have slept during my trip to Morrocco. It has all qualities of a 5 stars hotel: impeccable cleanliness, comfortable and large room, delicious breakfast, discreet and efficient employees which are always there for you and it is well located. I definitely recommand this place for a stay in... More

Riad Ghemza is the perfect, zen shelter, in the heart of the chaotic medina, spotlessly clean and comfy with authentic, atmospheric interior. The hospitality and the tips of the owners make your Marrakesh experience much more safe and enjoyable.Warmly recommended.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this Riad. The Riad is very clean with a pleasant communal area where we took a fresh breakfast each morning. We had a nice sized room on the top floor with a nice bathroom. The Riad is in a great location, just a few steps away from the medina with several good restaurants... More

We stayed at Riad Ghemza for three nights in February and it was very pleasant but the real star of the show is the service. Samir looked after us exceptionally well and nothing was too much trouble. He welcomed us on arrival with mint tea and sat down to explain where the main attractions were and what excursions might be... More

The stay at Riad Ghemza was wonderful. We were received like royalty by Khadija & Samir whom are the cornerstone of this Riad. Breakfast was served and it was a feast every day. The Riad is not the easiest to find in the maze which is the Medina of Marrakesh but you will get the hang of it and with... More
