We arrived at Riad Alaka around 9pm, we had an arranged driver pick us up from the airport. He led us straight to the riad (it seemed at first difficult to find but after being here for a few days, it's actually really easy to find!) The riad is located within a small market Bab Doukala. And within walking distance... More

It is hard to imagine a more friendly and welcoming place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Aziz, who will also cook you delicious dinners which take account of personal preferences and let you watch him prepare them in his kitchen.

We were directed to this riad by another one, which was fully booked. That was a great piece of advice, as the rooms are perfect (large, with style, clean) and the service (provided by Aziz and Soufiane) outstanding. We have been in a few riads of Marrakech Tripadvisor's Top 25 but this one was even better ! All your needs... More

We've just got back from our first visit to Marrakech - and we made the right choice of Riad to stay for our week. Riad Alaka was just beautiful We arrived in Morocco at 0030am where we were met by a taxi arranged by our hosts. A quick 10 minute drive from the airport where we were greeted by Sofiane... More

We spent our first four nights in Morocco at Riad Alaka in Marrakech. It is a small place with a real 'family feel' – welcoming, friendly and comfortable in a way that introduced us to the quiet charm of the country. Rooms were amply sized with good sized bathrooms. Efficient airconditioning (necessary as Marrakech is already heating up in early... More

We love this place. We stayed there 5 nights and had two rooms. The riad is charming and quaint. There are just a few rooms, and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, nice, and have plenty of room. The roof terrace and common areas are also nice. For us, the... More

A very tastefully refurbished riad near Bab Doukala (200 m from the place where a taxi can drop you). You have to cross the dirtiest but very colourful souk of Marrakesh, Derb Fatimah Zohra. The staff is very friendly and helpfull but their advice and choice of restaurants is quite traditional and tedious so don't hesitate to make your own... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was almost perfect. It's a really quiet riad close to all the fun... Breakfast was good and the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly. When you are visiting Marrakesh i would certainly recommend you to stay here. The only improvement i can come up with is wifi reception... More

I can't rate this place more highly - what a wonderful introduction to our first visit to Morocco. We arrived around 10am, via airport pickup which was organised by Riad Alaka just hours after we'd booked just a couple of months prior to our visit. The nice driver lead us through a small market, down a long alley dotted with... More

The riad lies in a quiet little alley in the medina. After the hectic pace and the noise of the city "coming home" to the peace and quiet of the riad and beeing greeted by Aziz, the soul of the place, felt sooo good. The dishes Aziz prepares with love and great skills are outstandingly delishes. As soon as the... More
