A friend and I travelled to Marrakech on a 5 day day break in our uni holidays. We had booked with Riad Dar el Aila very easily in January-they were quick to respond to emails and booked us an airport pick up which was very helpful. Upon arriving in Marrakech the staff were extremely welcoming and took a lot of... More

This riad is great value for money. It is beautifully decorated and a short walk from the souks and main square. Staff at the riad really cannot do enough to help you and you feel like you are staying in a home as opposed to a hotel. I also found it very peaceful and have left after a week feeling... More

Through a maze of back alleys and streets you arrive at the imposing wooden door of the riad. We stepped inside to a beautiful tranquil courtyard with fountain and plunge pool. The wonderful aroma of orange blossom a most welcome scent. Our room was fantastic. The staff cannot do enough for you. Yasin took us to a government spice shop... More

Ive just returned from 5 days in Marrakech, and I'd happily recommend this Riad to anyone going! From start to finish, the staff made us feel like we were paying far more than €70 a night. You are taken on a quick tour of the Riad, and given mint tea whilst you wait for your bags to be taken to... More

A lovely Riad in a quiet location but close enough to walk to the Souks and square for the night market. The staff are friendly and can't do enough to make your stay the best it can be. the room was clean and traditional. There are various roof terraces to sit and relax and enjoy the sun and views.

In October l had a bill for the hotel at first we thought it was a fraudulent activity. This was resolved just around Christmas when l was given all the details and... More

Five friends spent 5 nights here recently. We enjoyed the spotless comfortable bedrooms, the varied breakfasts, the relaxing areas on the roof, the friendly helpful staff and the location. They booked our trips for us and we were very pleased with the service provided. Warning!! We were approached on more than one occasion not long after leaving the Riad by... More

it is beautiful, comfortable, clean and the service, as promised, is outstanding. The roses-shampoo and soap add to the joy... We came in late, it was pouring rain, and Sa'eed welcomed us as if we were his family. The only down-side is that it is very hard to find. no signs pointing to it, no sign above it - it... More

We stayed here for 5 days in February and we had the most amazing time, the riad is beautiful, only a short walk from most things to do in marrakech. The staff are what really made our stay perfect though, they are all brilliant and welcoming and so kind. To name a few Sofian, Badr, Amadu, Yassine and Said took... More

Very lovely riad about 15 mins walk from the big square. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, air conditioner works well and shower had hot water. This riad is really two houses joined together, hence two courtyards and lots of terraces plus there is a pool as well as hamman. What sets this riad apart are the fabulous staff. Each and... More
