They were late 1 hour at the airport pick-up. Evryone else I saw was there before the guests, but we waited. They were only after our money, even asked for some after the welcome-drink tea. You get that at every riad, but only here they wanted money. There was no hot watter. Room nice and clean, breakfast was ok. Find... More

The riad is simply beautiful and staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is ok, my advise to everyone who travel to Marrakech for the first time though, is to arrange a transport from the airport with the riad prior to arrival. If you take a local taxi you are likely to end up paying much more and being... More

Place looks nice, its a traditional riad. But after a closer look, it's a little run down and in need of maintenance. Rooms were small and very smelly (plumbing issues), sheets and towels were not clean and in desperate need of replacement (holes on both). AC/Heater was noisy and didn't work properly. They had an electricity failure attributed to the... More

The staff were friendly, hospitable and went out their way to make our stay in their riad and Marrakech a memorable one ("jai allergie" :-) ) The room and breakfast were traditional which was nice. The negative things were only small though enough to bring the rating down a bit: - Shower and toilet did not work well - Room... More

At times Marrakech can be a bit chaotic and you can feel a little out of you're depth. Thats why having a nice place to stay with friendly honest people is Paramount! We stayed for 7 nights in Riad Mahjouba, Housin the owner is a lovely character and really makes you welcome. When we arrived we were held up at... More

We arrived by cap, and got our baggage carried from the cap to Riad Mahjouba. The guy who carried out bags demanded money, and would not go away. We felt a little bit cheated, and thought at first it was the riads fault. They guy was however not connected to the riad. The staff at the riad is really nice.... More

Situated in the old city in a pleasant traditional and welcoming neighbourhood. Staff are pleasant and they go out of their way to help guests especially Adil and Hisham. It is very clean, safe nicely decorated with traditional Moroccan mosaic ceramic tiles. The room is good size and tidy with en-suit. Breakfast is served by the welcoming Amal and Rabiah... More

This riad is in a great location, around 15 minutes walk to the main square. Morrocan pancakes, jams, coffee and orange juice for breakfast. The staff were very helpful organising tours and always at your service. (Anything is possible in Marrakech!) Rooms were simple but clean and the riad itself is decorated beautifully. If I was to come back to... More

A cozy hotel, not far from the city center, 10 minutes walking distance. The staff were very helpful, cozy and nice. Really service minded and with a smile around the mouth at all times. The rooms were some cold and poor lighting, but cozy chat with the staff, we got both extra oven and bedside lamp. Breakfast could have been... More
