Travelled here by myself, was greeted by the new manager Luc who prearranged transfers to and from the airport making life easier. Very welcoming and friendly staff who made the stay very enjoyable. Luc showed me around Marrakesh to begin with and provided advice and information which helped me settle in. Would definitely recommend this Riad to others and will... More

Spent the most amazing 3 days at Riad Mboja exploring Marrakech. It was very easy to organise and exceptionally cheap for the service provided. Luc owns the Riad who organised an airport transfer which was free of charge and met us to walk us to the Riad from where the taxi dropped us off. The staff were really friendly and... More

We were made more than welcomed by Christophe, who speaks French only but has Google Translate available to clear misunderstandings. The rooftop terrace is higher than most around and provides an uninterrupted view of Marrakech. Outside of the inner peace of this Riad is the hustle and bustle of the busy medina centuries old markets. If you are ready for... More

The riyad: This riyad has an authentic morocan and frensh design with a warm atmosphere. The rooms are cozy and clean, with all the necessary things you need. There are an air conditioner to keep you warm in the cold nights or cold in the hot season. You have free wifi access, though it works best in the lounge, and... More

1. Room had no window and stank 2. Wifi does not work in rooms- advised falsely 3. Our shower head was broken 4. Riad owners will always argue in front us- very annoying 5. Owners lock door inside so you are locked out every time- why give you a key? We were locked out at 5am and had to wait... More

Hello, Since June 1, 2015, I am the new manager of Mboja Riad in Marrakech. Of course, I read carefully, feedback from customers who have stayed at the Riad. My disappointment is with the height of the web, when I read you. I am sincerely sorry that you feel you are mistreated during your stay. I can not go back... More

Stayed only one brief night. The owner came to find us where our taxi had dropped us off, and walked us back to the Riad. Offered to take us to the bus station to buy a ticket without hestitation, and helped get a taxi the next morning for a decent price. Really refreshing to have people in Marrakech help you... More

Generally speaking you can find very few acceptable places for stay in Marrakech's medina, especially if you look for them in late evening, as happened in our case. Housing supply is rather poor, and you have to choose among bad or fairly expensive options. But 40 euros to which we managed to bring down the price, for such room as... More

Mboja is a lovely little riad located conveniently and close to Djemaa el-Fna (10 minutes walk, but an easy one - forget about the maze of central Medina, here you get all attractions of the old city part with no risk of getting lost... as long as you're not super clumsy). The riad is run by a French lady -... More
