When I decided to book a room in a riad. I looked them up on the internet and I saw all the riad's where the same. Then I came across the Riad 72 patio. It has a very big patio with palm trees alongside banana trees and a monumental fountain in the center. I felt like a king in my... More

My partner and I (gay couple) stayed at Riad 72 for 3 nights and loved it. Our room was gorgeous, the daily breakfast and tea were delicious, and the staff very welcoming and helpful. We were picked up promptly from the airport and made to feel like we were enjoying our own private paradise. Would highly recommend

We arrived down the alley and walked in the door to heaven. Our cases vanished to our rooms (thanks Aziz!) and we sat under the banana tree in the courtyard where our hands were washed with warm water poured over from a brass jar over a basin before we were given mint tea to relax us. We then got a... More

We had booked to stay at their sister Riad. Due to some problems with the booking, the Riad could not accommodate us in our booked room. They arranged us to stay at the Karma Suite, easily the most beautiful rooms we ever stayed. The service was very good through out. Selecting our own soap at the start was a fabulous... More

Yes it really is a haven in the bustle of a crazy city. Helpful and kind staff look after you well in French if not English. It's not a hotel really - much more like someone's house, so don't expect telly or a lot of info about what happens when (cooks night off for example!) and the stairs up to... More

Before arriving in Marrakech, I read the reviews and thought "what are people banging on about?", when they spoke of their riad being a peaceful haven in a crazy city. Surely everyone was being a touch dramatic? How wrong I was. Marrakech is one of the most frantic, bustling, overwhelming and (at times) difficult places we have visited. It can... More

Our stay in Riad 72 was excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay within the Marrakech medina. Unlike some of the other riads we visited during our stay in Marrakech and throughout Morocco, Riad 72 has a sleek, sexy feel to it. Rooms have poured concrete showers, luxury bath products, and very comfortable beds. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad 72 is a romantic retreat that mixes the best of modern Moroccan craftsmanship with contemporary Moroccan design. It has its own private hammam and, thanks to its lushly planted patio, fountain and water features, songbirds are often found here serenading the guests. The terrace is one of the highest of the medina. It offers incomparable views over the old city and onto the majestic Atlas mountains: ideal for soaking up the sun or a sunset aperitif. ... more   less
