We initially came across this Riad on the internet by typing in Moroccan afternoon tea in Marrakech. We contacted the owner (Rochelle) to see whether we could have the tea there. She was so super quick to respond, accommodating and pleasant in her reply that we cancelled our other Riad and decided to stay in this one for the duration... More

Raid Chayma is a beautifully restored riad, combining modern and traditional elements. It is quite small (5 rooms) which confer a sense of privacy and intimacy. The location - is actually one of its greatest assets. While I didn't realise it when booking, the riad is located 3 minutes walking from one of the main entry gates in the medina.... More

I really enjoyed staying at Riad Chayma: friendliness and helpfulness of the whole staff, central location in the old town, wonderful breakfast on a terrace, peacefulness of the place, traditional Morrocan design. We also had a welcoming dinner the night we checked in, which was fanstastic. Their mint tea is also incredible (we tried a lot of it at different... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my son. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the breakfasts superb and Sherif very helpful at arranging walking tours around the souks, airport transfers and also a great morning quad biking in the desert.

We booked our last three nights at Riad Chayma based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and wow it really does live up to the amazing reviews. Its in the heart of Medina and a wonderful stay. We loved the Saffron Suite, Rochelle the owner I believe is a designer and it shows, its just like a Mr & Mrs Smith... More

Wonderful stay at Riad Chayma. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the riad food was amazing. It's an oasis in the middle of a bustling and busy city. We did a trip to the Atlas Mountains and Marrakech tour. Both were informative and our guides were very polite. A good place for both couples and friends.

Not sure I can say anything that hasn't already been said! But .... Just returned from a girlie break with 3 friends, having spent 5 wonderful nights at Riad Chayma - in the Orange and Jasmine Suites - both rooms are beautifully decorated with amazingly comfortable beds. The staff are, without exception helpful, courteous and unobtrusive. Nothing was too much... More

We booked Riad Chayma for three nights as part of our mini touring holiday in Morocco and we couldn't have asked for more. Sharif met us from our taxi and helped us down the busy street with our luggage and we stepped in to a total oasis. It is pristine and spotless inside; a total contrast to the bustling streets...
