The riad is very well located... Very chic black and white marrocan decor... Room was amazing, bath tub with delicious products... Tasty breakfast... Finally..., the best thing was the managing and reception done by FATIMA and her son BAYDER... Since the very first moment until the and of our trip, they were always smiling, helping us with everything, giving tips,... More

I chose this riad because of the interior design. The typical maroccan interiors are redesigned in a modern way and mixed with design furniture. The riad itself is as in the pictures. We stayed in two rooms, chapter4 and Chapter 5 (which is stunning). Fatima and Badr were always very nice, giving tips and advices... and preparing for us maroccan... More

Prefect traditional riad with a contemporary feel and modern design. Staff here were very attentive to your every need and always helpful and happy to order taxis, organise trips and suggest places to go and eat. The riad is a short walk from the main square and great for exploring the city, it is also a quite area of the... More

We visited Marrakech for one week and stayed in Riad First. We felt very welcomed from the first minute we arrived. Our host Fatima served us some mint tea with Maroccan cookies. Riad was exceptional well decorated and very boutique hotel like. It was designed by Ludovic Petit's (worked as a designer for such as Christian Lacroix and Kenzo) with... More

Sometimes when you travel you find this new place that you love, and you simply would love to keep for you as a secret. I traveled to Marrakech and I discovered Riad First, it will be my home for my next travels there, I love it. Keep me the secret.

Myself and my girlfriend went to Marrakesh for a long weekend. We weren't sure about the location or this Riad when we booked because we hadn't been to Marrakech before. I would usually get a bus into the centre of town and make my own way to the accommodation, but I was glad I didn’t try! I emailed Fatima and... More

My brother and I stayed here last year and I promised to write a review and I completely forgot! I must say, it was a fantastic stay. Fatima and her son were great hosts and this was a true sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city. You feel like you are in a completely different city! The pool... More

I have been to Marrakech several, this is the first time with friends and this Riad was a very pleasant escape from the madness of the Medina, spotlessly clean, beautiful rooms and the terrace a wonderful spot for a little solace. The location of the Riad was okay, unfortunately with kids it was a little difficult to get two and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week over Christmas, and I would highly recommend staying at Riad First. It is a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the middle of the mayhem of the medina. The Riad is spotlessly clean and the roof terrace was a lovely place to relax and enjoy the sun. Fatima and all the staff were... More

We have just arrived back from a long weekend away and had such a lovely time at Riad First. The riad itself was beautiful and really nicely decorated throughout. But what made it so enjoyable was how friendly Fatima and her son were during the stay. It was more like staying with family as opposed to a big corporate hotel.... More
