This completely renovated original Marrakesh home is a wonderful place to get a full Morrocan experience. It's location on the edge of the Medina, the crowded old city, satisfied my desire to wander in the narrow allyways of this famous area, with little chance of actually getting lost. Once within the heavy studded door the sounds and bustle of the... More

Echoing previous comments Riad El Youssouffi is in the ideal location (depending on your purpose of visiting Marrakech). It is firmly within the heart of Medina for those looking to absorb the true Marrakech, yet is not directly by the rather intense and tiring souks. As with the vast majority of Riads, the immediate surroundings may appear slightly daunting to... More

The Riad is located in a perfect location, walk distance from every point of interest. Also, it is really clean and comfortable. After 3 days, I cannot make any bad comment about this place. Julien and the rest of the staff were very kind. The breakfast was delicious. Definitly, I would recommend this place if you want to stay in... More

The hammam was just around the corner and turned out to be a real treat. The riad is some 15 min. Walk from the squre but situated in a safe quiet area. Julian was always ready... More

This was an excellent opportunity to stay at a riad in Marrakech's Medina. Like most similar places, it's not easy to find and doesn't look promising from the outside, but it offers quiet and extremely comfortable place to relax and have a good sleep. Unlike the usually faceless chain hotels and budget hotels, the riad had a lot of character... More

We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant stay. The riad is perfectly situated in the medina, close to the main square but ideally located in a quiet local area. Julien is very helpful and accommodating. He arranged last minute out of town excursions and recommended must-sees to make our 2-day stay unforgettable. Every morning we were spoilt with a... More
