We stayed in this riad (booked via the HipMarrakech website) for a few days. It is small and homely and full of character, in a non-touristy part of the city. It has a lovely small courtyard, where breakfast (and dinner by request) is served, a first floor sitting room, and a nice roof terrace. The house staff are very helpful,... More

This was a perfect retreat and base from which to discover the city. Room was simple but cosy. Bathroon again simple, but with a fantastically hot shower which we needed. It was a bit cold at night but I think we just didnt pack the right clothes and had a bad spell of weather. Food was AMAZING! Lamb with prunes... More

Myself and a large group of friends stayed at the Riad Merstane recently, on what was my first visit to Marrakech. First impressions on walking into the Riad were how beautiful it is, I had no idea what to expect so was quite taken aback. The Staff were all lovely, Rachid the house manager took us out to the local... More

I recently stayed at the Riad Merstane with a group of friends and had an extremely pleasurable stay at this delightful guesthouse gem. The riad is located in the north of the medina, a 15-minute stroll from the hustle and bustle of the tourist-filled main square (though right on the doorstep of a magical 'locals only' market - Fridays only!)....

This Riad was absolutely gorgeous and a welcome, tranquil retreat from all the huslte bustle going on outside! Our rooms were beautiful, and the rest of the riad was just gorgeous. And so peaceful and relaxing. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or done any more for us. They really made our trip more memorable. The food was amazing (and... More

What a lovely place! It was our second time in Marrakech and initially we were a bit aprehensive about staying in, what it seemed, a place a bit far from the main square. What a pleasant surprise it was to be in such a "local" area. The Riad is lovely and we found easier to get to the square than... More

Rashid and the his staff made us incredibly welcome and really went out of thier way to make sure that we were looked after. We stayed in the Jasime room which was simply appointed but v clean with a comfy bed. High lights of Riad Merstane include mint tea and cakes served on the roof terrace on arrival, roaring fires...

Whinging to my girlfriend about the usual bleakness of celebrating / not celebrating my birthday in January and having previously expressed a desire to visit Marrakesh, I was still surprised when she lead me away to this marvellous little riad on a last minute, long weekend retreat. I wasn't really asking for too much more than NOT spending yet another... More

This is a good, quiet, clean, and rather beautiful riad in a city that really needs you to get away from the hustle and bustle at some point. Rachid, the manager, is a huge asset - he will literally walk you to nearby sites if required. The food is also excellent. The roof terrace is a great place to relax,... More
