We stayed here for a short break and loved it. The Riad is very calming and provides a great bolt hole from the hustle and bustle in Marrakech. All the rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We pre ordered a lunch to have on arrival and ate on the roof terrace. It was... More

Among the strangest places I have ever stayed was the Riad Meriem. Like all of the old city of Marrakech, it is in a rabbit warren tucked away in a seeming cave. Like all riads, the door from the rabbit warren opens to central courtyard. The staff was incredibly warm and helpful. The manager Cyrus was out on our arrival... More

We stayed here for 2 days following a fun but dusty week of exploring Morocco... what a fabulous way to end the trip. Beautiful decor, flowers everywhere and lush places to relax during every part of the day. On the roof terrace chairs are artfully placed around so at any point of the day you can recline in sun or... More

I hesitate to write this review because I really wanted to love Riad Meriem and, judging by the other reviews, my fiance and I are the first people ever to not be blown away by our stay. The positives: great rainfall shower, comfortable bed, good breakfast. The negatives: everything else. When we arrived, the guide they sent spoke only Arabic... More

We spent 4 nights in the elegant Red Room and were looked after with friendliness and care by Hassan and Abdul. The riad efficiently organised our airport pick-up and departure via a taxi and porter. It would be daunting to try to find the riad by yourself as it's in the maze of alleys in the medina, a great location... More

Stayed in the Red Room for three nights and loved it! The staff were very friendly and helpful! The staff helped us with showing us around the medina maze, booking taxis , arranging excursions and restaurants. Will definitely stay here the next time I visit Marrakech!
