I stayed in this Riad for 3 nights before going to Essaouira with another 3 friends. The rooms were average size but nicely decorated. Comfy beds & linen, nice bathroom & lovely décor within the Riad itself. Quiet to sleep but in the worst possible location. Far away from the main square Jelma El Fna, so we had to use... More

We stayed as a group of girlfriends in this Riad for 3 nights and you cannot fault anything. We have been amazingly greeted by the owner Nadia who personally phoned the Riad to speak to us and welcome us. That was a very appreciated gesture. Each Riad is different with different look and feeling. Some rooms were a bit “busy”... More

Just arrived back to the UK from a four night stay at the Riad Origines. What a wonderful little Riad to stay in, was quite worried about the location after being dropped off in a nearby taxi rank as the Riad is not accessable by car, its about a 5 minute walk down a ''rough'' marrakeshian alleyway, although this wasnt...

I returned yesterday (14/04/2014) from a girly week in Marrakech with my mum and Riad Origines was superb!! The whole setting is tranquil and beautiful!! The owners ( two very modern chic women) have made the Riad modern but sympathetic to Moroccan architectural features and designs which made it such a wonderful place to stay. The hotel was impeccably clean... More

I know well Marrakech, as I have lived there for almost 3 years. I can say that Riad Origines is on my favorite list: a small cosy riad, offering calm and comfort, in the heart of the Medina. Nadia and Chloe are fabulous guests and the staff is particularly nice and helpful. I highly recommend the dinners/lunch at the riad.... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a more modern riad in decor, but beautifully done. The rooms were spacious and the service was excellent. It was slightly less expensive and well worth the money. The breakfast was the only disappointment.

Great location - about 10mins walk to main square. Beautiful Riad - great rooms and coomon areas. The bed was so cosy and the shower was hot and powerful. The roof terrace was a dream in the midst of the hectic city. We spent a day chilling out in the sun there. The staff were so helpful. Adil walked us... More

This was our first time visiting Marrakech. It was hard to find this riad so i would recommend having the travel agency take care of transportation up to the riad. The riad is located in the northern part of the Medina, but we noticed in the Medina everything is within walking distance. Upon arrival they took great care of us.... More
