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

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
