Riad chafia was a great find, Patrick, Kristine, Anwar, Faima and Rasheed run the place beautifully, incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble - Katherine even fetched our bus tickets from the station for us to ensure our trip to Essouira. They were full of help and ideas and the most fantastic people. We shall certainly visit again and... More

This place is a little gem. Would recommend anyone to use this riad while in Marrakesh. The owner goes put of his way to make sure your stay is unforgettable. Ideal localtion and Patrick walks you to the square and shows you how to get back without getting lost.

I had the pleasure of staying 2 days at Riad Chafia and I didn't want it to end! We actually asked for an extra night but due to it's popularity it was fully booked. The moment I walked in I was impressed by the stylish design and artwork. Patrick, the owner, built and painted most of the work in the... More

Although it was more expensive than other riads we've stayed, it was also much more value. Patrick really built a very nice riad, which took him 16 months (I believe he said). And the result is there. Nice, hip, fancy, trendy, great large rooms, great wall paintings, roof terrace, relaxed music, good breakfast, etc. Besides the fact Patrick seems to... More

From the moment we stepped in to the day we left, the hospitality was exceptional! Patrick (the owner) and Anwar were the most helpful and friendliest of staff that you could ask for. You could tell this was done with pure passion rather than just business. The riad has only 5 rooms so you get all the attention you need-... More

From our arrival late at night, Patrick and his staff treated us more like family than guests. Their willingness to have us enjoy not only our stay at the Riad but also the Moroccan hospitality was without limits. From Catherine making a special trip to provide my wife contact solution to Anouar escorting us to the Souk and pretty much... More

I stayed for 3 nights recently with my girlfriend, Sarah. I can honestly say I've not been to a hotel or b&b and received such generous and friendly hospitality for a long, long time. Upon arrival, we were offered a welcome drink and given some information from Anouir. Once we were ready to leave and explore the city, we were... More

From all the hotels and accomodations where I have been this is probably th first one I cannot find anything to fault. We have just come back from a 3 night stay in Riad Chafia and the experience was absolutely fantastic. Patrick, the riad's owner and host is the most welcoming person ever. He is european, speaks very good english... More
