Stayed here for 3 nights in October. What a lovely place! Couldn't fault it! However the approach to it is slightly off putting - down a dingy alley way sometimes inhabited by people who may sleep there. Our room was beautifully furnished in Moroccan style. The breakfasts were especially good with different homemade pastries/pancakes and we also had two evening... More

It is hard to describe this riad, in a way that in full will do it justice. But if you decide to go to Marrakech, this is the place to stay. A home away from home, that i cant wait to get back to. The staff is not only helpfull, but caring about your wellbeing. The food is way above... More

The Riad Rafaele was a great find. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are great, and the food is great too. Riad Rafaele is a quaint find off the streets of crazy Marrakech. As some of the other reviewers mentioned, the Riad is at the end of a very dimly lit - mildly intimidating - alley. But the only... More

I feel I should reach for 'The Copy Writers' Book of Superlatives' (if one should exist!) before embarking on this review. Cosseted, cared for, charmed, cultured, calming..... those are only the 'c's. Other reviewers have detailed many of excellent features, both human and physical, of this Riad, and I can endorse these without reservation: visit yourself and experience the magic... More

It seems as if every great riad in Morocco is set at the end of a dimly lit passage that one hesitates to enter unless guided there, and yet wonderful hosts await your arrival. The door to Riad Rafaele opens to a courtyard filled with bird song and orange trees, from which Didi and his friendly staff had just proudly... More

There is very little to add to all the other reviews. Riad Rafaele is such a great find, a lovely, peaceful retreat in that mad, mad place. Beautiful place, perfect service, attentive without being intrusive. We only had one meal there as we were out and about so much but I would suggest eating there more often as the food... More

I'm so pleased I stayed at Riad Rafaele during my stay in Marrakech. With it being my first trip to Morocco and as a solo traveller I couldn't have been in better hands. The staff are super-friendly and will do anything for their guests. The rooms are cosy and spotless and the atmosphere absolutely tranquil. The location is perfect for... More

We stayed in the Souiria Suite in the Riad Rafaele in the middle of January 2015. The decor was amazing, such a beautiful place and the suite was amazing! The staff are incredibly attentive and friendly and the food is excellent. Didier and the staff made our trip extremely relaxing and enjoyable, arranging airport transfers and offering advise on the... More
