We really enjoyed our stay here. The location seemed a bit dodgy at first due to it being down a series of back streets but after walking it a few times we realised it was ok. Walter was a great host to deal with and also met us from the taxi. He gave us a great welcome at the Riad... More

Stayed here for 8 days. Beautifully decorated and so peaceful within the courtyard. The Riad was clean and tidy and the staff were fantastic. So polite and accommodating - Walter, his wife Fatima and Brahim. It was a sanctuary to relax after a hectic day out on the Marrakech streets and sit out on the rooftop terrace. We had a... More

The Riad is on a quiet little street yet still close to the central square that you are close to all the hustle and bustle of the city life.

We looked at 15 or so Riads in Marrakech medina and Swaka was by far the most beautifully renovated. Rooms are larger than most Riads and are comfortably furnished with lovely decor. All have been recently restored. Area is super quiet (no motorbikes!). Fatima and Walter are a friendly couple who treat staff and guests like family. Charming stay

Walter and Fatty, as well as their staff, showed us a great Moroccan welcome from the moment we entered their peaceful Riad. Always willing to answer all of our needs, they even took from their personal time to bring us shopping for mosaic tables which are manufactured on the outskirts of the city. Great times, great people, an easy choice!
