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).

Very nice welcome from the whole crew of the Riad. The owner is very keen on making things perfect for you. Superd riad where we stayed in the Douirya Suite as a family : exceptionnal Suite. Great breakfasts and very pleasant terrace on the top. It was in mid February but the sun was already nice to have a drink... More

This Ryad (small hotel) is bang in the middle of the Medina (city centre) and is an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of the souk. The rooms are tastefully, individually furnished using local materials and 'nik naks'. The staff are extremely friendly and service is excellent. We stayed overnight before trekking in the Berber villages and then again on... More

We stayed in this riad for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon in Morocco and then 2 nights at the end of our stay. Daniel and his staff were superb and really made our stay special. They organised for us to be collected from the airport and taken to the front door of the riad so there were... More

A lovely riad with lots of Moroccan charm. We stayed 4 nights in the Suite El Menzah which has its own spacious terrace with views of the city and distant mountains - though you have to walk a few stairs to get there. Many thanks to Daniel and Azziz for their very personal attention and assistance with all manner of... More

Like other reviews I agree it would be difficult to find on your own, use the barrow men for as little as 30dh they will take you and your luggage to the door. Coming from the airport the ryad is on the over side of Jemma El Fna Square and depending on what day and what time you arrive it... More

Wow...My first thought entering El Borj. A totally indulgent visual feast. Orange trees in the courtyard, tiny birds fluttering around, mosaic flooring, metal trellis on the windows, dreamy blues and subtle greens....divine. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night. Marrekesh was the final stop on a 7day trip to Ouirgan and Essaouira. However I do wish we had booked a... More

First and foremost, DO NOT attempt to find this Riad yourself....you won't !! We arranged our Moroccan trip through Naturally Morocco Ltd, and their organisation based on experience was superb. We were met at the main square by a barrow man who took our cases and guided us through the square and narrow streets of the medina to a small... More

There was good communication after we had booked the ryad, and we didn't take them up on the offer of helping us find it, you should. It is right in the heart of the city, a 2 minute walk from the main square and in amongst the souks. With that in mind we couldn't believe how peaceful the ryad was... More
