It is a gorgeous, quiet Riad in the middle of hectic Marrakesh with utterly friendly people, which makes your stay more worthy. Please do have dinner at the terrace, because it tastes really good and it is a beautiful place to enjoy your dinner.

For our final stop after a long road trip through Spain and Morocco this August we made a last-minute booking in Riad Africa. We soon learned that we could not have made a better choice, and were quickly made to feel like we’re staying in a distant family’s home. The feeling that you have a home to come back to... More

Tim the manager was excellent as were all the staff went out of their way to assist with ongoing transfer/ car hire. Good breakfasts on the roof terrace. Great to cool off in the pool after a afternoon of sightseeing/shopping. Had two rooms... More

We stayed here at the start and end of a hiking trip into the Atlas mountains in Sept 2013. The manager was very attentive and even stood around during meal times in case we needed anything. The rooms were comfortable and had en-suite bathrooms. The pool in the centre of the Riad was a welcome sight after a long day... More

Tim, Said and all the other staff were lovely and always happy to help. The rooms were really nice and a good size, and the pool was a really huge... More

The atmosphere in this riad is just great. Tim the manager, Said (mr. No problem) and Mahammed were all very helpful and kind. Tim always have a good story from his long time experience in Africa. The staff can help organizing one day trips as well as longer trips. The riad itself is an oasis in the anarchistic Medina. Located... More

Great staff, great location, fantastic roof terrace for getting away from the hustle & bustle of Marrakech. Tim & Said were terrific with information on where to go, how to get there, how much things should cost (if you are good at bartering) & where you can go for a glass of wine! We also stayed at the sister accommodation... More

Tim, the Manager Said and Mahammed could not have done more for us - 5 minutes from main square, yet very quiet, great room, roof terrace, small pool. Great breakfasts and dinner. Lots to see and do.
