We were very pleased with the riad. It is a bit awkward to find it as it is in narrow windy dead end alley off another windy narrow alley in the middle of the uncharted medina (old city). Even google earth and your gps will only be able to put a blinking dot in the middle of an empty area... More

such a perfect way to end a day of shopping, we only got to spend one night there, but it was wonderful. Arrived there after a day of haggling, getting lost in the souks and running out of money (we eventually found an atm that worked), and utilised the riad's spa menu (the hamam bath, body scrub and a 1hr...

My boyfriend and I booked a room there for one night after reading the excellent reviews of the Riad, but considering the low price we paid, we were still a little bit suspicious. Having arrived in Marrakech the day before and having largely got lost the first day, we disregarded the offer to be picked up by a member of... More

We came to Marrakesh in the evening, bit tired after 3h bus ride from Essaouira, hoping for a nice place to rest. Even with a map and printed directions the riad was impossible to find. We were lost in a dark maze of narrow, dirty, smelly alleyways. Same kids offered to walk us to the riad and made sure we... More

The Riad is very difficult to find but once you're there you'll fall in love and will always know how to come back! :) It is really a refugee, even inside the medina, from the fuzzy, noisy but great Marrakech! Abdou, who runs the place, I believe he is always awake :p, he's a great guy, helping us in everything... More

We stayed in this riad for three days in January. The location is not the best as it is a bit far from the main attractions of the city. However, the riad itself is very nice. The rooms are all typically decorated (although a bit too dark). The riad benefit from a great roof area where you normally have breakfast... More

Just arrived back from a weeks honeymoon, we were greeted by the lovely Philippe and Anique, we were booked into a fab restaurant for our first night, the superb service did not stop there, their hospitality is second to none, great food, surroundings and peaceful. We were very sad to say goodbye, we will be going back with friends again... More

I arrived with my sister and best friend with initial trepidation to be welcomed into a Riad of sheer splendour and relaxation. The atmosphere was heavenly with much space to retreat to my own personal space whilst also having areas to gather together if your there with a party of friends. This Riad has impacted us so much that we... More

My two teenage daughters & I stayed in this super riad right in the centre of the Medina and had a fabulous few days. We were within walking distance of all the souks and really enjoyed our shopping sprees. What was so great was the fact you could be in the middle of all the noise , people and the... More

Riad Dar El Aila ideally situated in the heart of the busy medina within walking distance from the famous Jemâa el Fna place. The hustle n bustle of the medina streets give way to an oasis of peace once you open the door of the Riad Dar El Aila. Big welcome by Stéphane n his friendly,helpfull,staff members Bouchra n Leila... More
