We stayed here for two nights and it just was not long enough. Beautiful Riad, friendly and helpful staff, great value, quiet and peaceful, delicious breakfast and fine area (not dodgy at all for us, two girls). I cant wait to go back and would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely, relaxing, friendly Riad, the perfect place to take a group of friends for my husbands 50th. We've just returned from a 5 day stay at Riad Merstane, the Riad is beautiful, every bit as good as we remembered it from last year. The friends that joined us this year were amazed by the Riad, it's the perfect place to... More

We stayed at the Riad Merstane for 7 nights in total, with a trip out to the atlas mountains and essaouira in the middle....all of which could not have been so well planned and organised without the help of Alan and Kate, the owners. The Riad itself was perfect. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of it all it... More

Riad Merstane lived up to it's reviews and then some!! An oasis in this frantic city. Being soooo hot when my friend and I went, we really did appreciate the coolness, peace and quiet to be found here. It is a little off the beaten track (some 20 minute walk from the "big square" - that's if you don't get... More

it is located in the more traditional part of marrakech. it is fairly difficult (if you are not good with directions) to find but the riad itself is amazing!! fairly narrow rooms but we booked the whole riad, so space was not much problem. the manager and the housekeeper are great help and very friendly. the riad and its experience...

We stayed just one night at Riad Merstane en route from Essaouria to London. The riad is quite magical and an oasis of calm within the frenzy of Marrakech. Manager Rachid ensured that we were comfortable and suggested short excursions. Our rooms were a delight and the roof terrace perfect for peaceful sunbathing. We decided to choose a dinner cooked...

Just returned from four days in Marrakech staying at this riad. Very clean, comfortable and delicious breakfast prepared for you. Riad manager Rachid was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, in fact he even came out on the first night to find us when we got lost in the souks. Correspondence with owners by email excellent. Definately can recommend it.... More

Riad Merstane offers genuine, warm hospitality from the staff who conscientiously look out for the interests and comfort of guests. It is a beautifully resored and comfortable riad; the breakfasts are excellent and Rachida cooks delicious evening meals on request. The room was comfortable and attractive and the lovely peaceful roof terrace is ideal for relaxing and dining. Really good... More

We arrived from the airport by the pre-booked taxi at the square near the Riad. The manager met us and guided us in the dark, we would'nt have had a hope of finding it alone.! O.k. it is off the beaten track but don't let that put you off. Its a real traveller's adventure and although we felt a bit... More

We stayed in the sandlewood room at the riad. The airport transfer is 100 dirhams which you can book with the riad The riad is lovely and the staff are friendly and very polite. However I would recommend eating at the riad on the first night as it is difficult to find the riad at night and it would give... More
