Riad Alaka is very beautiful, our room (Meknès) was gorgeous, very clean and spacious. It's about a 20 min. walk from the main attractions in the medina so if you're planning your stay around the souks and Jemaa el-Fnaa just ensure you know your way back because getting lost in the medina at night can be an "interesting" experience!!

Stayed for 10 days in this Riad with my brother. My first time in Morocco. The service we received from Aziz, Soufiane, Malika and Hassna was first class, nothing was too much trouble. Francoise the manager was very hospitable and made sure we were happy. They have to be the friendliest people I have ever met when I have been... More

I spent 10 days at the Riad Alaka in Marrakech late last month and would like to say it was a great experience, overall. While my sister and I were the only guests there for most of the time, we had amazing personal service from the staff of 3-Aziz, Malika, and Soufian. The first morning after our arrival(picked up by... More

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful Riad for seven nights. It has been beautifully restored by the owner Jean Luc who we had the pleasure of meeting on our first night. The Riad is very beautiful and furnished to a very high standard. Comfort is clearly the aim and is certainly achieved from the rooms through to the... More

I contacted the owner but it was full, she however said she owned another one, Riad Alaka. We arrived late atfernoon and Aziz the Riads' manager had arranged for someone to... More

For the first time in our life, we tried a Riad. What a marvellous experience! The Riad is modern with a nice pool at the ground floor and a pleasant terrace on the top. The rooms are spacious and well arranged with all the commodities. The welcome is friendly and , last but not least, the cooking was excellent. Hamman,... More

Perfect stay. I would recommend this Riad to anyone traveling to Marrakech. As the other reviewers said, the riad is beautiful,confortable, clean, and the food is great. Its 10 min walk to Djema el Fna, just far enough to avoid noise...Its also about 10 min walk to Jardin majorelle. A MUST. and you can easily get to medressa ben youssef... More

Really nice riad with very comfortable rooms at reasonable prices. Moroccan breakfast offered and evening meals available if requested. The best thing about this riad was it's central location and ease to get to the main square. My last stay in Marrakesh I spent ages getting lost but this was not the case here. Staff are friendly and helpful. Didn't... More

My Girlfriend and I stayed here over Valentines weekend and both had a great time. The Riad itself is lovely; it is beautifully decorated with an authentic Moroccan feel running through it. The rooms were great with comfy beds and peaceful surroundings and the terracotta shower was a real novelty. Breakfast was also fantastic with a nice selection of things... More
