Would love to say that there is something wrong here, purely to be constructive. the 'story' riad is simply perfection. We had two rooms, one for my wife and I and one for our teenage daughter. From the moment you arrive you are the house guests at a very up market family gathering. John is such a wonderful host (and... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago and John and his staff were fantastic. He gave us such great advice and options of things to do. One day we took a cookery class that was so much fun and I think everyone who goes should take this class. The cooking class was at a resort not too far and... More

What a perfect place to stay. It's the complete opposite of the busy, smoky, noisy Kasbah - a peaceful, beautiful, little oasis that we retreated to in the afternoon heat. Jane and John couldn't be more helpful and organised everything with great efficiency, patience and good grace. For example, we arrived ridiculously late in the evening having queued for an... More

Hikaya could not have been any better. The riad is located well and is just around the corner from the Sadian Tombs it is an easy walk to main attractions. We walked to the souks for the afternoon and played in the square as night food stalls set up and ended the night with a horse carriage ride around to... More

Within a few hours of arriving, we felt like we were staying at our friend John's (owner) amazing house as his very special guests. We have never felt more welcome on our travels! The service was better than Four Seasons - staff floated around and appeared from nowhere whenever you needed them. After spending a day in the Krazy Kasbah,... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this place ticked all the boxes and then some. John the host was an absolute charmer. There was nothing he wouldn't do to make sure our stay was perfect. As a host 10/10 was be an understatement. His local knowledge and tips were priceless. The Riad itself was clean, charming... More

We have used TripAdvisor for all our trips away, for restaurants and for things to do but have never actually taken to reviewing the places we've visited. Riad Hikaya was such a great experience we decided it was worthy of our first review. Before leaving home, Jane had already been in contact with us to ask if there was anything... More

We wanted a few days away and booked a long weekend in Marrakech, choosing Riad Hikaya and we couldn't have made a better choice. John, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. His knowledge of this amazing city is second to none and his Riad is absolutely gorgeous. The decoration, pool, roof terrace is sumptuous. The rooms are... More

You can go mad trying to find the perfect Riad among the thousands available in Marrakech. Honestly, if this is within your price range, don't torture yourself and just book it. Everything the reviews say about how beautifully restored the Riad was done under John's loving and creative eye is true. Everything about the hospitality is true. There are other... More

I had an amazing experience at Riad Hikaya! Within an hour of booking the riad, I received an email from Jane (the riad proprietor) who introduced herself and offered her assistance in arranging any activities I wished to pursue during my 6-night stay. After several email exchanges, a loose itinerary was drawn up and I was ready to explore Marrakech.... More
