I can't fault this accommodation, especially the service which was as good as I would have expected in a top hotel. Many thanks to the manager who provided a lot of help and information. The location is central and near to all the sights in Marrakech. (You will have to judge what Marrakech has to offer independently of how good... More

Having spent some days in Atlas mountain huts i arrived at Riad Africa with low expectations. I was blown away. Riad Africa is a beautiful,tranquil and welcoming abode only minutes from the craziness of Marrakech. This place WILL be my destination of choice when I return to Morocco.

Visited this Riad as part of a BA holiday and given the excellent reviews expected great things. First impressions are quite good - when you walk in you are greeted by a lovely courtyard and pool. Staff are polite and helpful. For the money we paid it was good enough value but the Riad is a bit tatty around the... More

Had high hopes of this place due to reviews. We chose it as part of a BA holiday and although it was one of the cheaper options I was a little disappointed overall. First of all the good points - the location is superb situated down a road which easily lead to the main square and the Place du Ferblantiers... More

We stayed a couple nights on both ends of a hiking trip and felt very relaxed and comfortable. Showing up late the first night the chef made us a wonderful dinner and we relaxed with some local wine on the roof top terrace. Great service and friendly people!

Hamid and Ishmael make this riad a really welcoming place to stay. It is quite rustic (e.g. limited hot water) but you are in the heart of the medina and a few mins walk from Jemaa el Fna square. Despite this it's lovely and quiet. Great roof terrace; we made friends with two lovely little cats who seem to live... More

We stayed here based on TA reviews. We booked the Lalibela suite for our family of 4 and did so 4 months in advance of our trip. We arranged to have someone meet us at the bus station(we were coming back to Marrakech from Agadir) and we know how very confusing the streets in the medina are. I highly recommend... More

We visited this riad in December 2015 as a family of 4, and even though we booked a suite (Lalibella as specified in Agoda) they assigned us to a much inferior room, without saying a word about it, i.e. trying to cheat, as our room has been given to another people. It seems that this is a common practice in... More

Fantastic evening. Had a meal here consisting of 4 courses if you count the initial tea ritual. The atmosphere was perfect with delicious food that was more than plentiful and catered for all tastes. Contact them direct and book your experience with them. It was certainly a memorable night

Efficient transfer arranged by the Riad got us off to a good start. We booked half board and were not disappointed by the food and service. The beds were comfortable and everything worked - wifi, fridge, plumbing. The roof terrace is lovely although the view was less than anticipated. The location of the Riad was excellent and we were able... More
