We stayed for five days as a couple in early May and were not disappointed. Chloe and Nadia are absolutely delightful, totally professional and run their riad with a lovely light touch. Adil and Said were just as excellent as everyone says, attentive, kind and helpful to the last, without feeling at all like we couldn't have privacy. Most importantly... More

The Riad Origines is amazingly beautiful, really nicely decorated with unique and creative touches avoiding any clichés one might find in more traditionally furnished riads without sacrificing any of its charm at all. A fantastic oasis to retreat to after the madness of the souks. Relaxing on the rooftop terrace in the evening is a particular treat! The staff are... More

We were the only people staying in the Riad at the time, and we were given a choice of which one of the gorgeous interior designed rooms we would like. The breakfasts were great with lots of choice and they were able to offer hammam and spa treatments in the Riad. At all times, we were offered mint tea and... More

Our room was very nice but this riad was vastly understaffed. Adil was great- helpful , but he was all by himself. The 2 owners came by once each during that weekend and just seemed intent on suggesting places, restaurants, etc that they seemed to have deals with. As Adil was the only taking care of all the patrons, whenever... More

First of all, thank you for your time to give us your feedback and things for improvement in the riad. I'll try to respond point by point Regarding the staff, we are 4 people and 2 owners, myself and my partner Chloe for a riad of 5 rooms, I do not think that it can be considered as "understaffed". The... More

We agree with a lot of the other reviews about this place. The staff are exceptional and go out of their way (without being intrusive) to make sure you're happy and give you advice on what to see, where to go. The Riad itself is decorated in a really lovely, colourful, unusual way, so if you want something a bit... More

We stayed 2 nights in Riad Origines in a nice decorated room in a quiet area. A good breakfast, helpfull and friendly personal. The owners took their time to give us detailed information on things to see. Aisha cooked for us the best Tanjine of Marrakech. It was a 15' walk to the center . A taxi brings you there.... More

We have just returned from a short break in Marrakech, staying at Riad origines. I cannot complement the staff highly enough. The Riad was part of a package deal so I wasn't expecting too much as it was a budget deal but I have to say the Riad was one of the trip highlights. I normally say a hotel is... More

I was traveling with friends over New Year's Eve to Marrakech and we stayed at Riad Origines. We loved the design of the Riad; a perfect mixture between traditional elements and modern minimalism. Everything very clean and well maintained. Most importantly, the service was excellent. Adil and Said helped us with everything! They walked us to restaurants, to the suk,... More

We had a really great time here. The hosts were so helpful telling us about restaurants and sights to see and the whole place is really beautifully presented with lots of personal touches. We had food there on the first night after we arrived which was excellent and Siad was on hand to guide us to the Medina so we... More

Riad Origines is an excellent destination for a couple wanting to experience Marrakech and all its delights. Not too far from the iconic Jamaa el Fna square - taking a fascinating and confusing walk through the souqs (or a cheap taxi for the less adventurous) - the riad offers a calm, beautiful, and comfortable retreat from the madness of Marrakech....
