I just stayed for several nights and will return on my way back to Marrakech. Owner Patrick is as friendly as they come, walking with you to the huge Djemaa el Fna in case you get lost. Which you won't with his instructions. It's about a ten-minute walk to the square but you'd think you were in the countryside, with... More

Absolutely fabulous atmosphere, cosy and elegant, in the best part of the medina. Lovely, clean, and extremely well decorated. Patrick, the owner, is a magnificent person, always coming up with ideas and suggestions to make the best of our visit. It was our first visit to Morocco. He helped us adapt to the city and customs, and he managed to... More

We stayed at Riad Chafia for a long weekend, and it was a great experience. Patrick the owner was a wonderful host, advising us on prices and haggling, things to look out for, walking us to places so we didnt get lost and coordinating our packed itinerary! Felt more like we were staying with a good friend ;). The riad... More

The riad is located in the middle of a dead end branch off one of the the major souk roads. The location is peaceful, but beware the call to prayer if you are a light sleeper (I had no problem but others in our group heard them). However, with so many mosques around the city that will be the case... More

We spent 4 nights in the Riad Chafia (3 nights, then a trip throughout Morocco, then one last night), and it was great! Patrick and Rachid provided us with many tips and advices that made our Moroccan trip smoother. They made us feel completely at home and relaxed. The Riad is ideally located in the Medina, but a couple of... More

Spent 5 days at the Riad and it was a great experience. Patrick was a wonderful host, trying to accommodate whatever you desire. This place deserves 5 stars due to him! The accommodations were beautifully decorated, with the rooms and bathrooms being a generous size. The location is the second best thing as it’s an easy 10 minute walk to... More

Just back from 4 day break. The riad has been beautifully restored and is in an excellent location on the edge of the medina so that you can easily visit both old and new Marrakech. The location is surprisingly peaceful considering the bustle outside. I would suggest that you take earplugs though as the call to prayer starts at 5.30am,... More

Patrick, the owner, absolutely makes this place. He is so helpful and generous. A French national who moved to Marrakech to run his own riad. There is nothing he won't do for you. On our last day we had to get up very early for our flight (around 4am). He got up half an hour before us and had made... More

This guesthouse is heaven on earth. It is in the best location of the medina and located very close to most of the main attractions, however it's very tranquil and the perfect place to relax after a busy day of haggling in the souks. You get a feel of exhilaration and peace of mind the moment you walk through the... More

The riad has a great location in the medina, close to some of the must see sites, at the edge of the souks, and 10 min walking from the big square. Also easy to get to by taxi as there is a square close by where they can drop you off. Ask for a map or to be picked up,... More
