When going to Ben Youssef, I would strongly advise you to arrange transport so you dont have to get a taxi which drops you off at a random location. Once we found the Riad it exceeded our expectations and the welcoming was very warm and sincere. Our room was a double and it had a small balcony over looking the... More

I and my family stayed in the Riad Ben Youseff for 5 nights at the end of August. I had pre-arranged a taxi with Aziz the riad manager. Thankfully that was a great decision as to find anywhere in the Medina at night can be a little confusing. Once we arrived to the drop off point Aziz was there waiting,... More

When you get out of the taxi, that is arranged by Mr Aziz from the RIAD, you really have to get used to the environment that goes along with a big city as Marrakech, Lot's of people, donkeys small motorcycles driving by. But once you entered the riad you are in a very beautiful environment with autenthic walls, ceiling and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as a direct result of the reviews. Aziz is a very hospitable host and his home offers a very traditional experience. Our room was on the first floor and while cosy had all we needed. Breakfast was good and plentiful and the staff go out of their way to welcome you. The decor in... More

We stayed this week for three nights and after a difficult year following a bereavment of a close family member were very touched by the hospitality we recieved. We felt that we were staying in a family home and this was only reinforced by the birthday cake and party the manager arranged. I was so touched by the oppurtunity to... More

Very good and quiet place at the center of the crowded Marrakech! Near all the points of interest, you can arrive in five minutes to Jemaa el fna, the most important square in Morocco! The staff is very cordial, they help you to resolve everything, the food is excellent and in the evening you can relax in the terrace, with... More

We stayed at Rian Ben Youssef in March 2014 and could not have chosen a better Riad, anything we wanted was possible, from getting a local shishah pipe to smoke on the roof to filling up the pool with water if we wanted to swim. We sat at the table with the owner on various occasions who told us about... More

We didn't really know what to expect when visiting Marrakech. The Riad is tucked away in the middle of the city, but when you step inside it's like a different world. Aziz and his team were very helpful and friendly and the rooms were beautiful. It's right in the middle of the action and you can easily get lost, but... More

The best way to visiting Marrakech is to stay in this Riad. Its location in the Medina makes you become automatically part of the wonderful city of Marrakech. The walk to the El Fna-place through the souk is lovely, the service in the Riad is outstanding. Azziz and his family makes you feel very comfortable, the feed is delicious, the... More

It was a complete pleasure to stay here: the Riad is exquisite and the service very attentive. We ate royally, in the courtyard, the roof terrace and the dining room. The rooms are delightful, and the decoration of the whole Riad is very fine. The owner, an architect, is very kind and will tell you all about traditional Moroccan styles.... More
