Three important considerations when visiting Marrakech - an authentic riad, in a quiet location in the medina yet close to the action around Jemaa el Fna, and a source of reliable advice on how to make the most of your trip. Riad Africa has all three. The riad manager Tim is English but has lived and travelled throughout central and... More

The staff are friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. This Riad is all we could have asked for and more. We really liked the peace of the Riad so close to the main square. We will be back if we visit Marrakech again, highly recommended.

Found Riad Africa by chance, but so glad we did. Booking was easy and Sue was helpful and prompt replying to emails etc. The Riad itself had a plunge pool and nice roof terrace for breakfast and dinner. A 7 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna, it is well placed for all the sites and, relatively, easy to find, but... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel as recommended by BA. I had some questions and spoke to sue , the owner, and have to say she made a last minute trip stress free. Once at hotel, Tim the manager was a walking encyclopaedia of Marrakech, and pointed out local sights to see and extensively went through "dos and... More

A beautiful, tranquil spot tucked away in the midst of the madness of the medina. Perfectly located with Jemma El Fna located about 10-15minutes stroll away. After a hectic week trekking in the High Atlas Mountains, this was the quiet calm and relaxation I needed. Tim, the manager gave me some fabulous hints and tips about where to eat and... More

Great location and surprisingly quiet with traditional air conditioned rooms, pool and roof terrace with sun and shaded areas. Helpful and friendly manager and staff who went out of their way to help with any requests. Stayed for one week with two teenage children and all agreed that we soon felt at home there. Really enjoyed the tagines, fresh juice... More

Exactly what my family and I were expecting from a Riad: silence, elegance, friendly environment, tasty breakfast, comfortable and clean rooms, a great English management and a very good dinner on request. The location is very good, as very close to bab mellah (easy to be reached by car) but far from muezzins (which are not a great wakeup) and... More

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

Stayed here at the start to our first trip to Morrocco. Great location central but very quiet. 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
