just returned from amazing trip to Marrakech, stayed in the above riad and even hubbie , tough Geordie had a tear to leave. They say a riad is an oasis and it is so true. Even having read up so much on the subject and visiting the city before, I must admit had a few nerves as we drove through... More

The Riad Shama and its staff are a delight. Although a little way away from the Main Square, my niece and I found it no problem to walk to and from all major tourist attractions. As two women travelling alone in Marrakech, the Riad Shama was a little bit of heaven. Comfortable rooms, good food (although you are definitely paying... More

What a wonderful surprise as the place is absolutely charming. The staff are extremely helpful and amenable and the rooms are tastefully and authentically decorated. Made such... More

Although about a 20 minute walk away from Jna el Fnaa it was nice to be away from the tourist area in an authentic residential area (although my children were a little freaked out by the very ragged local beggars!) A wonderful tranquil atmosphere when you step through its doors. Beautifully decorated... More

Riad Shama is a typical Marrakech riad (traditional) style hotel inside the walls of the Medina. It is an upper end riad in terms of quality. Situated in the far northern part of the Medina it is away from the main square and has few of the sites of the Medina near it. In fact the streets outside the riad... More
