I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of my trip around Morocco, and returned for another 2 nights at the end. It's in a great location - only a few minutes away from the main square, but as soon as you step inside it feels completely tranquil, just what you need! You are made to feel at home... More

We had the most wonderful stay at the Riad, the location was perfect and the place itself is stunning. The main square is a five minute walk however the Riad is very peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle. The breakfast on the terrace every morning was lovely they had a wide selection of choices with fresh orange juice... More

The riad is situated in a great location just a 5 minute walk from the main square but still quiet enough that we felt far away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The dark alleyways to get to it at night were not a problem and we felt very safe walking around. The room was clean and comfortable and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during my recent visit to Marrakech. It is easily one of the best hotels I have stayed in terms of a balance between value, service, and quality. For the price that you pay, you get so much more back. Riad Africa is situated right in Medina, 5 mins walk to the main square Jemaa El... More

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in mid March this year and had the most wonderful time! Ali came to meet us halfway to the riad, even though we had a pleasant man take our luggage in his cart. (Please note this will cost even though we had not booked or asked for this...I just didn't know how... More

The staff were incredibly helpful from the beginning of the booking process to final farewells after a two-night stay. Nice room, great breakfast on the rooftop terrace and a beautiful riad close to everything in the medina.

We stayed at the Riad Africa a few weeks ago and I honestly cannot sing it's praises highly enough. From the moment we were (miraculously) greeted by a friendly man when we got out of our taxi to take our bags to the Riad (I still have no idea how he knew who we were!) to the time that we... More

Been on holiday with my mother, stayed in Riad Africa. The people were so friendly, the food was very good and the view superb. This is the only Riad I want to stay if I travel to Marrakech again! Thanks for the wonderful stay guys.

This riad is in a brilliant location within the medina and was easy to find using google maps. It is a nice and comfortable place...but, for the money they charge i expect it to be much better. It is a bit worn and tired. Hot water seems to be an issue. Sometimes we had it...sometimes not. No plughole drained well... More

Thank you for your review. We are very disappointed that despite providing you with a free room upgrade to our Lalibela family suite you felt that £90 a night for your family was too much for the overal facilities and service we provided. May I point out that you stayed in the peak month of April and we feel, compared... More

We are a family of four, which included two teenagers. This was our first trip to Morroco and whilst a little apprehensive over what to expect, be it, the standard of the Riad, would it be 'too' authentic or the souks and medina be too intimidating. We found the city to be authentic but in a pleasant way, yes the... More
