It was difficult to get directions to arrive at the riad on my own from the train station without using the riad's rather pricey pickup service. No welcome as in other riads (tea/juice, info) so didn't know about the roof terrace until the day I left. Staff seemed indifferent - no map, no assistance navigating medina, no apology although two... More

A group of seven of us took the Riad for a special birthday. We had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, the rooms excellent, the staff were so helpful and accommodating. Yes the call to prayer woke us in the morning, but isn't that how it's meant to be? Highly recommended by picky people

First of all, this riad is an amazing location, right in the middle of the Medina. While we were a bit skeptical when our airport transfer dropped us off at the edge of the square, unloaded our bags into a random cart, and told us "Now you walk", when we walked into the Riad it was like arriving at an...

Like some others, our first night and initial pick-up was a bit bewildering, but once we settled into the riad it was quite a nice and pleasant place to stay. The terrace was particularly nice, though we were fortunate to have it all to ourselves when we were up there. We stayed in the Chocolate Suite, which was very spacious... More

After arriving in Marrakech, we took a taxi into the main square, Jemma el Fna. The taxi originally wanted 250 dirham to take us right to the riad. We talked him down to 150 (£12-13) to just the square. Once out of the taxi a kid guided us to the riad, which would be quite hard to find as its... More

we are a couple in our mid 20's and stayed at riad des arts for 7 nights in the 'collonial tent' room at riad des arts. We went for the transfer from the airport. We rang the hotel and arranged this for our arrival only, this cost 17 euros, this is expensive considering a taxi to the airport costs around... More

if your planning on taking a trip to Marrakesh be sure to take more funds than planned. Arriving into the airport a short taxi journey 2.8miles to our hotel cost us £30. Stunned by the price of the taxi...we were dropped off on the Square (jemma el Fna)... to find someone unknown waiting for us to tote our suitcase in... More

Excellent riad to spend a few relaxing days in Morrocco. The hotel is really close to the main square, meeting point for all kind of activities. The decoration and renovation of this hotel was perfect, keeping the arabish style with a chic and posh style for visitors. Quite small with just 5 rooms to keep the environment cozier. A trip...

The Riad has a great location, right near the Souks and Jema El Fna main square. The rooms are themed and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, particularly Mohammed - the lovely porter / riad front desk manager. Mohammed organised a fantastic day trip into the Atlas mountains for us, with a brilliant local guide called Hussein. I would... More
