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

I've stayed here a couple of times and have always found it to be a luxurious and relaxing experience. The staff are attentive and the food is delicious. As with most things in Marrakech you need to settle in and expect the unexpected. 72 is a wonderful place to retire to...I will be back.

We booked this hotel very late as another reservation was cancelled at a much bigger, much worse hotel. This riad is lovely, with only 4 rooms and absolutely friendly, kind and attentive staff. I was greeted with mint tea and biscuits and explained everything I needed to know about Marrakech - I asked to be walked to the nearest taxi... More

On arrival we were greeted and shown to the wrong room and we only knew this as we had seen pictures of the right one! We had booked the karma suite which was beautiful. The attention to detail was outstanding and the housekeeping was exceptional. However having previously stayed in 4 riads we were expecting to be welcomed into a... More

We had an excellent stay at Riad 72, I completely recommend them. The whole Riad is so carefully thought with such high quality furnishing. The staff are extremely friendly, willing to tell you the best things about Marrakech, as well as ensuring that your stay is perfect. The food is amazing here as well, they need to keep their chef!... More
