We stayed for one night at the oh so beautiful Ryad El Borj in June this year. It was a surprise birthday present from my sister which made it even more super special. We walked down an alley off the Jemaa el Fna and arrived at a BIG wooden door, no sign on it so I had no idea what... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Ryad El Borj and our experience was truly memorable. The service we received was excellent, right from organising our airport transfers to catering to our various requests such as providing tea making facility in our room. Daniel, Azeez and their staff's hospitality was really special. The Ryad is very conveniently located and is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2015 after some time in the Atlas Mountains. The beauty of this hotel could not be overstated. Its a tranquil paradise, seconds away from where you want to be, yet still retaining absolute quietnness. From the moment we stepped in we were warmly welcomed and refreshed. The tower room has the most... More

Every 5 star review that has been written about this Ryad is spot on. From the moment of first entry through the front door the experience is one of calm, beauty and style. The beautifully restored architecture and elegant traditional Moroccon decor and furnishings blend with comfort and luxury to ensure every guest has a perfectly appointed room with ample... More

This riad is exceptionally beautiful, from the tiled patio shaded by orange trees, to the comfortable and immaculately tasteful rooms furnished with traditional furniture, cushions and rugs. The owner and staff were all charming and extremely helpful. The location is very convenient, just about 400 metres from Jemma el Fna (the main square). The dinners were very good and very... More

my partner and I stayed here for 5 nights and found it to be very comfortable, beautifully decorated with several peaceful sitting areas to relax and recuperated after exploring the fascinating and exhilarating medina. We stayed in the tower room which has a private roof terrace with spectacular views over the old city and mountains. The room was clean and... More

This hotel is right in the center of the old town inside the Medina in Marrakech. The entrance is off a dark alley with a resident rough sleeper that initially looks unpromising, but once the heavy wooden door creaks open you are welcomed into an oasis of traditional charm. The rooms are furnished with heavy wooden furniture and beautiful hangings... More

We staying in the "annex". There was a second bedroom (and bath) for the kids. It looked like it would be possible to set up a third bedroom, too, if you have a very large family. This suite also had a small plunge pool, kitchen, courtyard, and seating area. Just wonderful. The main "lobby" of this 5 or 6 room... More

We stayed in this riad for 2 nights. It was a great experience. The rooms are very clean, the staff are super professional (especially Aziz), the price was very reasonable ( €60 per night, including a great breakfast).
