I arrived at this hostel after a great tour through the country. Our guide dropped us at the parking nearby after arranging a pickup from the owner of the Riad to take us to the place. First thing he said was an angry "I've waited here for half an hour", which was actually not true. He refused to shake my... More

We stayed in Riad Chez Lea for three nights at the beginning of our trip. The Riad is dark and dated and feels dirty. The breakfast was reheated and greasy, my friend found some mold on her cake one morning and the owner refused to apologise. The Riad was noisy in the evenings with local noise (not from residents).

This was our least favourite place we stayed across Morocco. The riad is dark and poorly lit, it is poorly cleaned, the central courtyard is exposed to the elements and feels like it with dirty magazines. The welcome from the receptionist was good and his engish was excellent, the other staff were also friendly and helpful- for example our lightbulb... More

The hostel was very good for the price we payed. We stayed in the four-bed dorm for three nights. The rooms are relatively clean (and cleaned extensively every day while we were out). The shower isn't of the highest quality (water pressure was not great, and there is no shower curtain) but we weren't expecting much. The hostel has a... More

They didn't get our reservation for the first night, so we have to stay for the first night in another Riad and the welcome was a little bit weird. The staff is very helpful, the breakfast is good with various pastries. The location is good, close to different landmarks and a taxi station. The room is very wet - the... More

Myself and a friend stayed at Riad Chez Lea in October. We had booked to stay at Rainbow Hostel but upon arrival we were transferred to their sister riad which turned out to be a great move. After initially booking accommodation for two nights, we soon extended this to stay there for the full week, minus our 2-night trip elsewhere.... More

We stayed here for one night in early January. It is in a good location and wasn't too hard to find. The rooms are a good size but they were cold and damp. We had to ask for a remote for the aircon unit but it didn't work. The breakfast is good and the roof top is nice and relaxing... More

I came to Morrocco in November for my boyfriend's birthday. We decided to book to go to marrakech after finding a cheap flight with Easyjet from Manchester. What a holiday!!! With 26 degree weather at that time of year, who could complain? Nari could not have been more welcoming and helpful. He advised us brilliantly on everything. He helped us... More

We booked this Riad through the internet and it was our first place in Morocco and it was a very good choice. Our emails prior to arrival were all answered quickly. We organised a transfer from the airport for 150dhs which is more than a taxi but someone is waiting for you and there is no hassle in negotiating and... More

We spent 3 nights in a standard double room and were really happy with our selection. We had great communication with the owners from the booking stage and they were happy to help us arrange an airport transfer with a driver for our arrival at midnight. The owner met us at the medina gate and helped carry our luggage to... More
