We recently stayed at the Riad Rafaele for 3 nights and i was very happy with the accommodation I chose. It is a very traditional Riad with a lovely court yard where you could have food and drinks or just sit down and relax. The room we had was quite large and decorated in typical Moroccan style, there was also... More

We arrived late in the evening on our first night; the minibus dropped us off and we had to walk 5 minutes down these streets which all seemed a bit daunting; even the entrance to the Riad was a little misleading. However once the doors opened, the beautiful setting and decor of the Riad took over, it was perfect. We... More

Really fantastic riad right in the centre of Marrakech. From before we arrived Didier was extremely helpful in organising airport transfers. On arrival, we were given a very warm welcome and during our stay our every question was answered and need seen to. The building has been renovated beautifully, is very clean and comfortable and is amazingly quiet for being... More

We stayed in the Rafaele suite of Riad Rafaele for four nights during the Marrakech International Film Festival in November 2013. The riad is in the northern part of the medina, north of the beautiful Madresse Ben Youssef. It is owned by Didier and Eric, Frenchmen who have spent their retirement years rebuilding, restoring and renovating the riad from scratch.... More

This is my first Trip Advisor review. After my stay at Riad Rafaele I couldnt go past sharing our amazing experience and giving my recommendation for this Riad in Marrakech. When my cousin and I decided to visit Marrakech, we had no idea how important it would be to choose the right place to stay. We did some research and... More

We had a wonderful stay at Riad Rafaele. It is a peaceful haven amongst all the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Didier, Hakim and their team were very welcoming and very helpful in advising us during our stay. Didier organised airport transfers for us which was really helpful. We had a really memorable visit and am keen to return.

I wish we were still at Riad Rafaele. All the reviews we had read were spot on. Without repeating what all other reviews have said we just want to say a very big thank you to everyone at the Riad who made our stay memorable, including the cat! Accommodation, food, breakfast, and hospitality was really good. Brilliant surroundings to make... More

My husband and I stayed at Riad Rafaele with our 9 month old daughter for 5 days in May 2014. It was an absolute Oasis of calm in the centre of Marrakech. We arranged for airport transfers which were very smooth and something I'd highly recommend as I imagine it would be quite difficult to find on your own. The... More

I hated Marrakech. It was dirty, the food was crap, the men were pervy and there wasn't all that much to do. Thank goodness for Riad Rafeal which offered an amazing tranquil escape. So if you have your heart set on going to Marrakech, stay here to keep your sanity. Oh, and make sure you take good earplugs unless you... More
