It´s very well localized,just 10 min walking of the main square,and everybody working there is very friendly and attentive. If you stay here you want regreat it. The breakfest is... More

I would highly recommend a stay in Riad Amira. It's a lovely little riad hidden away down a back street in the medina (old town). Immersed with the locals, you'll be made to feel at home by the lovely staff. My boyfriend and I were in Marrakech for 5 days, so the staff at Riad Amira arranged a taxi for... More

Beautiful riad with amazingly helpful and friendly staff. They were never in your face but always did everything they could to help. Short walk from Square and souks. Nice evening meal or lunch if required and ordered. Very quiet so easy to sleep. I am well traveled but have never seen such chaotic and dangerous driving. Great care must be... More

The Riad is beautiful and the girls who run it were absolutely fabulous. Very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely and we had an evening meal which was also really nice. The biggest selling point for us was that it has a little pool and as we went in August we really did need a dip in the pool!... More

Set within the city walls, in the Kasbah, Riad Amira is indeed a caven of calm. Once walking through the door, you are welcomed into a stunning Riad together with a plunge pool ideal in the heat of Marrakesh in August. The double bed sunloungers on the roof top were fantastic and the rooms were traditionally decorated and kept to... More

Seeing the few reviews of the Riad on the website I decided to share my experience with Riad Amira even if it was in September 2006. We stayed there a week with my wife (with a 2 days break in Essaouira) and had one of the best hotel experience in my life there. This was mainly due to the exceptional... More

First timer in Morocco, and we didn't really know what to look for. This Riad is in a narrow alley a few "blocks" off the main gate. Once inside it is a completely different experience! The rooms are minimal but elegant and the roof top space is top notch with views of the center of Marakech and the Atlas Range.... More

We originally booked for just one night, but after a change of plan was so glad we stayed for two! It's a bit of a mission to find, but so worth it! Stayed with my gorgeous boyfriend and his lovely 13 year old daughter & we were all absolutely delighted with the welcome & hospitality shown to us. The rooms... More
