Nicely tucked away down a few sides streets in the middle of the medina and less than a 5 min walk to the large square it's well located. The staff are impeccable - friendly and attentive. Breakfast on the roof top terrace was one of the highlights of the weekend as all the food was impeccable. My only complaint was... More

What a wonderful authentic and characterful Riad. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here. Tim the manager is very informative and gives helpful advice on how to enjoy your visit to Marrakech. As others have said we can not praise the staff enough. Mohammed with a ready smile. Said with his help and advice. The ladies who... More

A big thank you to Sue and the whole team in Marrakech for giving us the most fabulous holiday. Riad Africa was a great base for our time in Morocco; authentic, characterful, comfortable and personal, and superbly located in the old town. The service was outstanding. Tim, Said and all of the other staff were so welcoming, friendly, helpful and... More

This was a lovely little hotel right in the Medina, so no cars to the door, but donkey and cart! The hotel was comfortable, and the food really good and good value. Tim the manager was very helpful, although I don't think he will be to everyone's tastes. He wasn't afraid to share his opinions, so if you'd prefer a... More

We stayed here (12 women) for 3 nights. English speaking manager Tim was very helpful with do's and don'ts and was excellent at arranging transport and trips. The other staff were friendly and looked after us faultlessly. Tim even contacted us in Casablanca to say money had been found in one of the rooms, so genuinely honest too. The breakfast... More

We knew this would be a simple riad, and the staff were friendly and helpful and the location great. We were disappointed at the shabbiness of the riad and in some areas the dirtiness (eg filthy sofa in main "salle") really let it down. Our rooms were on the ground floor and felt a bit damp and gloomy. All this... More

We stayed here for a girls a trip in February. Brilliant location and food. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The Riad Manager advised on local spots to visit and eat, going as far to act as a guide and book us into restaurants. Would recommend for families, couples and groups. Only negative would be the price... More

We stayed 2 nights twice during our holiday in Marocco. Very nice place. Quiet at night despite the location in the middle of the noisy and busy Marrakech. The staff were extremly helpfull, and the manager Tim made us feel almost at home. Beautiful rooms, nice atmosphere. If ever in Marrakech again, we will be back.

This is such a nice riad. With so many to choose from, this one is really worth a visit and stay. It is very close to the main square, with only 10 minute walk away, it make take longer if you stop at all the shops along the way! The rooms are of a good size and have a nice... More
