This a a recently rebuilt riad around a marvelous patio with orange trees. It is more like a house with 5 bedrooms than a classical hotel. The internal design gives you a real feeling of what riads must have been in the past (with of course the top of modern comfort, including wifi everywhere). Didier, the operator of the Riad,...

I can't think I've ever stayed in accommodation where I have been made to feel so welcome. As the proprietors pointed out, this is not a hotel but their home and they were very happy to welcome us into it. This was a last minute reservation and the correspondence prior to our arrival couldn't have been better. We were collected... More

Just returned from one week in Marrakech. The Riad Rafaele was a wonderful and unexpected place of serenity and beauty in the middle of the bustling old town of Marrakech. Didier and Hamid were fantastic, I felt like I had a friend by my side from the minute Hamid picked me up at the airport, which was great since this... More

I never write reviews but felt I must after my stay here. A last minute short holiday with a friend found us at this lovely welcoming riad nr the Medersa and photography museum, based on the great reviews and the fact it could cater for a twin/triple room. From our airport transfer with Hakim and our arrival at the riad,... More

How lucky we were to have found this unbelievably beautiful raid in the heart of the busy medina! Each room is exquisitly decorated with traditional craftmanship. The open central area has a canopy of fruiting orange trees, which at the time of our visit were blooming and emitting the most fantastic aroma! The meals prepared there were the BEST food... More

My mother and I spent 6 wonderful days in this beautiful house and were completely satisfied. The house is about 5 minutes from the Bazaar, just very quiet and fantastic. They serve every morning homemade jam, with bread, fresh orangejuice and we was very happy. One day we ask for yoghurt and the next day we had the best homemade... More
