My wife and I had 5 days in this lovely Ryiad in March and we can't speak highly enough about it. We had exceptional service from all the staff and especially from Hassan, the manager. The breakfasts were generous and delicious, and the Moroccan and Italian dishes for dinner were first class. The Riyadh houses the Pepe Nero restaurant which... More

This raid is an all around winner in every sense of the word. The room, and the beautiful interior design of this boutique hotel, plus great food and service added up to a memorable experience. Its a winner!! The dinners we had were some of the best in Morocco. Besure ask the waiter to suggest a local wine. I found... More

The Riyad al Moussika is an oasis in the Medina of Marakech. The Riyad, a former Pasha's palace, is renovated with exquisite taste, a wonderful courtyard for leisurely breakfasts and afternoon tea. At night, it becomes Pepe Nero, one of the best restaurants in Marakech. It captures the heritage and character of Marakech. What makes the place so special is... More

Have just spent 4 nights in this delightful Ryad. The staff are exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. The surroundings are so pretty and the breakfasts delicious. It's also fantastic for evening meals, the restaurant is busy every night. Would definitely stay here again.

Having stayed at Riyad al Moussika several times in the past my visit this week confirmed that it is one of the best places to stay in Marrakech. The Riyad is situated in the Medina (the old town) but the moment you enter it you leave behind the bustle and noise of the street and find yourself in an oasis... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week in Marrakech, where we stayed in the Riyad Al Moussika. The riyad is located down a little side street 5 minutes walk from Jemaa Al Fna. As soon as we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us. We were invited into the library for mint tea and Morrocan pastries... More

We've just had 5 nights here. We've had a number of stays in ?Morocco and Marrakech but the first time that we've chosen a riad. Ok, it isn't a luxury hotel and that takes a day to get used to - no reception, sometimes no-one around etc, but as the stay went on we enjoyed the peace and calm. There... More

i can't rate this hotel enough. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left, we were treated like royalty. Our suite was like something out of a movie. Spacious and incredibly comfortable. The extra bonus of this riad is the in-house restaurant (Pepe Nero). Delicious food and you can choose between Moroccan or Italian cuisine. The restaurant was... More

The driver sent by the riad pulled into a dusty, non-descript square with no telltale sign of a hotel. We proceeded on foot through an alley off the square, soon arriving at a door with a Pepe-Nero Restaurant sign marking the entrance to the Riyad Al-Moussika. It felt tranquil inside standing in the entryway next to a rose-filled fountain in... More

We had very high expectations for this riad as we had read many reviews and it came highly recommended. It was beautiful but seemed a bit dated and the rooms a bit small especially for the price and compared to other places we had stayed. Overall the focus seemed to be on the restauarant and the rooms an afterthought. Our... More
