A quiet Riad in a slightly unsettling part of the town centre. That said, the staff were keen to accompany us to the square and ensure we knew our way at all times. The room was clean and had excellent air conditioning (required in August) and we felt it was an ideal riad to see the medina without being amidst... More

Thanks in particular to Abdou, who went above and beyond to ensure our very pleasant 2 night stay in Marrakech. He and Amina are truly an asset to the Riad, always friendly and happy to help wherever needed. The Riad is centrally located with easy walking distance to most of the sights, but quietly located for Medina standards to enjoy... More

Wonderful management who are genuinely committed to guests having a good stay -- to your comfort, safety, enjoyment of Marrakech. They gave great advice about reasonable rates to pay for the variety of items sold in the souks (all without pushing you toward particular vendors). Amina, Abdul and the rest of the staff are lovely people. All the guests seemed... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for a week in May and were very impressed. The place is spotless and the food as good if not better than any we had outside. The staff could not have been more welcoming and we felt very comfortable and at home there. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves apart... More

My partner Leo and I loved staying in this wonderful, clean and stylish riad. I read in another review that it's Farrow and Ball meets Marrakech and that seems very much the case! It has a lovely, bright courtyard with a beautiful bougainvillea climbing the wall. It's a truly peaceful place to have breakfast and come and recuperate after a... More

The Riad is in a quiet location which is most welcome after the craziness of the surrounding area. It's only about a 15 min walk through the Souks to the main square. The Riad is small but this is perfect as it's always quiet. The rooms and main areas are spotlessly clean and the staff can't do enough for you.... More

During my many visits to Marrakech, I have found it difficult to find a conveniently located, traditional style riad at the lower end of the price range which I have actually enjoyed staying in. Riad Ariha however, ticks all the right boxes. It is beautifully decorated in a wonderfully calming palette of white and greys and with prices starting from... More

Amina and Abdul made my wife and I very welcome. The Riad concept of hotel, found in the Medina of Marrakech, was very enjoyable. This one has five bedrooms, modern and is very well arranged. We had three nights there. It was perhaps a 1 - 1.5 km walk through the souk to the Jemaa El Efna (main square). It... More

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Riad Ariha for three nights. It is the staff that make the experience truly special. Warm and attentive. Amina, our host, was charming and helpful. The riad itself is very comfortable and above all, peaceful. I highly recommend staying in one evening for a home cooked Moroccan meal, delicious cooking. Now... More
