My wife and I loved this authentic riad. We are both interior designers in the US and we were blown away by the beauty and originality of the design of all the rooms that we had access to. Our own bedroom was stunning-the star suite. It is spacious having a bed and sofa within the room but not a separate... More

My husband and I have just returned from a stay at this beautifully characteristic riad. It was my husband's first time in Marrakech so when we arrived in the main square he was a bit taken back by the amount of chaotic activity and various sounds that unfolded before us. As we snaked our way through the narrow streets to... More

Excellent stay at this lovely Riad made extra special by Abdul who helped us enjoy our stay in Marrakech. He recommended lovely restaurants and walked us to and from them - nothing was too much trouble. He also organised trips for us - he was the Riad Star! The food was very good and I had a Moroccan bath which... More

We stayed here in November 2013. The two main staff were fantasticly helpful. My wife is Gluten Free and the young cook made her special "bread" for breakfast (different types each days), so she had a full and filling breakfast each day. The young man running the Riad, suggested places to eat which were great, even which were the best... More

We have just come back from spending 5 nights at the Riad Star. Before our holiday we read the great reviews and can honestly say the Riad Star did not disapoint. Everything was spotlessly clean, Abdel, Meriem and the rest of the staff were lovely and did a fantastic job of looking after us. Nothing was a problem. Thank you... More

My wife and I chose Marrakech Riads for our Honeymoon. Upon arrival we would be told which one of 4 possible Riads we'd stay in. Before we booked our honeymoon we'd looked at all 4 on the internet and could not choose between them, as they all looked fantastic. Some times in the past on trip advisor I take any... More

I had visited Marrakech as a student many years ago and slept by a bus outside the Medina. So I had wanted to go back and visit the sites but sty in a bed for a number of years. As a jazz fan - well sort of - I knew about Josephine Baker's music and her exotic life. So Riad... More

We had a delightful two-night stay at this charming, intimate little Riad. Abdel and his staff were incredibly friendly, efficent and helpful -- Abdel in particular is the real "star" of the Riad! The Riad has a wonderful personality and charm, with interesting decor and history. The rooms are nicely appointed and very clean. Among other things, the staff did... More

Sixteen of us rented out the Riad for 2 nights, photo's don't do this place justice, it's an amazing Riad, with a beautiful courtyard and roof terrace, rooms are killer and the staff are even better. Abdel and team were great, there attention to detail and eagerness to ensure we had a great time in the city was nothing short... More

Six of us stayed in this Riad for three nights in late April. It certainly lived up to expectations. The location is most convenient and we felt safe returning to the area after dark. Much has been said in other reviews about the excellent, friendly service and clean, well appointed rooms. The staff were professional, cheerful and friendly and made... More
