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

We booked the entire Riad with a group of friends. To echo the comments of a previous guest the Riad was very good value although the rooms were rather small. However we would not recommend the area the Riad was situated in to first time visitors to Marrakesh or anyone wanting their first Riad experience. We were not first time... More

As the owners of Riad Merstane we are glad that Appleton8 found us good value but sorry that thay found our staff less than satisfactory. on this occasion. Our staff have received a high number of overwhelmingly positive responses on Trip Advisor so we are not sure went wrong this time. We visit the riad very regularly - just before... More

Stayed for three nights in this riad, in Dec-Nov 2008. This was my second time in Marrakech and my second riad experience. Firstly, I found this riad to be outstanding value, a real bargain. The riad is about a 20min walk from the Djemaa el Fna, and although a map was supplied; the first time is a bit of an... More

We are glad 'Kingkong' of Gloucester found us such great value for money overall. However, we feel that the comments about the cost of excursions and airport transfers are unfair as our airport transfer charges are at the lower end of the scale for private transfers and our house manager will recommend cheaper group excursions where asked.. Certainly most of... More

I Took 7 members of my staff to this Riad for our Christmas Party. We had a fantastic time and the staff were brilliant. The breakfast was good, but if you stay do make the effort to have at least one evening meal as the chef is superb. The Manager is extremely helpful and also is happy to get anything... More

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
