We were looking forward to this place after reading positive reviews. To be fair, the room interiors were decorated very nicely, the breakfasts were amazing and our guest house host was helpful by arranging airport transfers and transportation, guiding around the medina and inviting us along to a local event. However, overall we did find this place to have some... More

Riad Mesc El Lil was wonderful. The house was perfect. A restored, authentic Riad with great architectural details and charm. The windy path to get to the house also added to the charm, and after once or twice, I figured out my way. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and I loved waking up to the beautiful ironwork and colored... More

I just returned from 2 weeks at the Riad Mesc il Lil and I would go back any day! Yes, I would go back even after the explosion in the Argana. The Riad is within easy walking of the main markets, but seems a thousand miles from the noise and hubbub. It was like heaven to return after a hot... More

From the beginning we were given such a warm welcome and Patricia was so helpful in pointing us in the right direction (literally with all the tiny streets to negotiate!). The riad was magical with orange trees in full flourish in the shady courtyard, enchanting rooms and a wonderful sun terrace on the roof. Tucked away,but close to everything we... More

We've been going to Marrakesh for business and pleasure for many years and have stayed at some of the most exclusive hotels and riads. You never got away from the idea that you were a tourist. And, there are now quite a number of luxurious riads, that while very nice continue that relationship. At this beautiful and cozy riad, you... More

As my title suggests this is truly one riad that we shall never forget even after many trips to Marrakech on previous occasions. From the moment we entered the riad we were greeted by the charming owner and staff and we felt instantly as though we were returning friends rather than tourists. Every wish was catered for throughout our stay,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 2010. The location of the riad is handy to all the major attractions of Marrakech. It is a real little gem hidden behind the maze of alley in the middle of the charming medina. The whole place is beautifully presented with the owner’s personal touches. Patricia, the owner is truly a lovely... More

I have just returned from staying in Riad Mesc el Lil on and off over a period of weeks in August /September .. I visit Marrakech every year on business from Australia and am very familiar with the always intoxicating ambience of Marrakech and the Medina and many other Riads. The beauty ,peace and serenity of this Riad away from... More

The riad is situated just a few minutes walk to the souks and the centre of town. Patricia, our host was most accommodating and was only too happy to suggest activities and places to see. She even organised a day trip into the Atlas Mountains, which was another highlight. The riad is small, only 3 rooms which open out on... More

This Riad is 5 minutes from the Place just in the middle of the Medina. The first time to find it is a little frightening, but once you are there it is a silent paradise just in middle of the Medina, very cool with the lemon trees in the patio. The rooms (only three) are decorated by Patricia as well... More
