We didn't get off to the best start, arriving late afternoon, we had just been dropped off by a driver of a cooking course we had been to and was assured his "friend" would show us to our Riad for "free". Obviously, it turned out this was not for free and we refused to pay. We were aware of fake... More

My friend and I stayed in a twin room at the Riad for 5 nights and couldn't imagine a better place. The location is nearly perfect, next to a big bus stop where also the airport bus stops, not too far from the main square (about 15 minutes) and the souks (starting only 5 minutes away from the Riad) and...

In all the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, Riad Jakoura was a little peace of heaven. Situated 3 minutes from the entrance to the souks, and 15-20 minutes from Jemaa el Fna by easy walk. The owner is VERY kind and helpful. Riad is beautifully decorated and very clean. At the top is cute terrace, in which we would chill... More

Riad Jakoura was my little oasis in Marrakech... it's peace and tranquility is a god send after a Marrakech's mayhem. But what makes this place surpass other places I stayed at in Morocco, was it's kind and helpful manager Mohammed... what an absolute gem of a man. He deserves all the patronage he gets because of his integrity and the... More

Our stay was extraordinary! The staff/owners were fantastic to say the least. The location of the riad provided proximity to the souks, the market and the hustle that is the definition of Morocco. The mint tea was unreal! The design was uniquely Moroccan, the Terrace gorgeous, and the breakfast, tasty. Rooms were clean, and AC refreshing. I would recommend this... More

We had an amazing week at the raid. Mohammed the owner was extremely helpful along with his Scottish wife!! We were blessed to have a traditional meal with the couple in the courtyard. The location is 25 minutes away from the main le place and the souks, but we were given a handy map which was ok. Rooms very clean.... More

Unfortunately, google maps doesn't give an accurate walking route for Riad Jakoura and after pacing up and down Rue El Gza, we were extremely relieved to find the door to the riad after working out the directions provided in the email. The riad is lovely and cosy and has got a nice terrace for guests to enjoy. At 21euros, the price... More
