Riad 72 is just the place to stay at when visiting Marrakech. Close to everything and the best terrace in town. The staff is so friendly and helpful and the meals are just wonderful.

I travelled to Marrakech for the first time on my own over Christmas 2011. Stayed for 3 nights. As a single female (blond) traveller I was quite nervous about being there on my own (having read the 2 page advisory in Lonely Planet), and I was completely taken care of by Emanuella and her team. They arranged airport transfers for... More

I'm not sure I would ever go back to Marrakech if it wasn't for Riad 72. A tranquil haven from the madness of the medina, we had to force ourselves to leave the riad after long, lavish breakfasts on the sunny roof terrace with a view to the High Atlas Mountains. The interior design of Riad 72 strikes a perfect... More

Stayed for three nights. No question that the location is excellent. But we found the "courtyard" to be very uncomfortable, with limited seating for breakfast. The dining room didn't appear to be active. The breakfast was set out before guests arrived. Rooms were comfortable, but nothing special. This was our first visit to Marrakech. Staff was not particularly helpful with... More

I looked forward to breakfast every morning. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Rooms are massive and very cool. We absolutely loved this place! It's very well located to all the souks and very quiet at night so no problem getting to sleep.

I first read about Riad 72 in Amex's Departures magazine before planning my trip to Marrakech. Even with prior research, a pleasant surprise awaited when I walked into the beautiful courtyard of this tastefully renovated riad, welcomed by the hospitality of its director Emanuela and the wonderful staff. Riad 72 is very beatiful, with an intimate setting perfect for escaping... More

We stayed in the Riad for 5 days and really liked it. The Riad is about an 8 minute walk away from the Souks and a 5 minute taxi ride away to wherever you want to go in Marrakech (the new town etc.) The Riad itself is very nice if not rather simple - the roof terrace is lovely for... More

I would highly recommend this riad. The staff are super friendly. The atmosphere is pure relaxation and quite a contrast with the busy outside world of Marrakech. Rooms are tastefully decorated and the food is amazing. A perfect stay. Thanks to everyone for making our short break so memorable.

We stayed for two nights in Oct 2011. The riad is beautiful, furnished and decorated with impeccable taste. The roof terrace is an oasis of calm. We arrived late and had arranged for a meal to be served in the courtyard which was delicious. Pillows need some personal tweaking and the local mosques will wake you at five o'clock call... More
