We stayed for three nights in the Riad and had a great time. Daniel and his staff were all very helpfull. We really enjoyed the breakfast served on the terrace. The riad is perfectly placed to visit all of the attractions in and around the square.

We (family of four with two teenagers) stayed three nights in the smaller of the two Riads, which we had to ourselves. Like the main Riad, it has the most beautiful courtyard with orange trees and the addition of a very striking plunge pool at the heart of it. Both Riads have been renovated and decorated with a lovely taste... More

We recently stayed at Riad el Borj for 3 nights in the Douireya suite and one night in the Suite el menzeh and would completely recommend both for your stay at Riad el Borj. The owner, Daniel, was away when we visited, but was in contact via email and his staff were very helpful and attentive. Had the best meal... More

We stayed two nights in this lovely Riad. In the middle of the medina only 5 minutes away from Jemaa el Fna this Riad is a peaceful, clean and green (a lot of trees and plants) place to recover from the hectic city. Daniel, the owner, organisied a pick-up from the airport and someone who brought us with our luggage... More

My husband and I stayed in this Riad over Christmas and we could not have asked for a better place. Our host was the owner Daniel himself. He does not live on site but was there every day to ensure everything ran smoothly. The rooms were clean, the beds firm and the showers hot. The roof terrace is a real... More

The riad is in the very center of the medina (old town Marrakech) about 5 minutes from the main square. It is like a little paradise in the middle of the crazy city. The weather was nice enough (at Christmas time) for us to have breakfast and later sunbath on the rooftop terrace during the day. During the renovation most... More

I think we were the only people staying - lucky us, because we got the royal suite. It was huge! A massive double height living room, separate 'snug' with TV and dvd selection, and on the other side the actual bedroom and en-suite bathroom. All furnished with lovely Moroccan textiles and furniture. You need to ask a barrow man to... More

A friend and I stayed here for five nights in November 2012. We stayed in the Tower room which was lovely, amazing views with a private roof terrace. The room is advertised as a double but we realised the bed could be separated into twins so the staff changed it for us. If you want to be near the square... More

A surprising little bit of paradise tucked away in a dimly lit alley way in the centre of Marrakech. The rooms are quaint with lovely decor, they have large comfortable beds and hot running showers. There can be a lot of stairs to climb so bear that in mind if you are unsteady on your feet! We had dinner cooked... More

The riad is as nice as on their photos, but apart from that we were really disappointed from our stay there. The surrounding is very busy and it's hard to get to the riad without paying some kids who you wouldn't have found it without their help. We asked for restaurant recommendations and the receptionist had only one recommendation, a... More
