We stayed in the top floor Chocolate Suite. It is exactly as the pictures on the website, so quiet and peaceful. We were greeted by the fantastic Abdul every evening who spoke great English and brought us mint tea and water to our room when ever we asked for it and didn't mind being woken when we could work out...

We stayed in the romantic Turquoise suite and loved our 4 night stay. The staff, Noura, Nadia and Hafid, were absolutely charming, and the home-cooked meal we ate there one evening (a beef tagine with prunes and apricots) was first class. The Riad makes a fantastic first impression - an oasis of calm accessed via a door at the end... More

Riad Shemsi is a great place to stay, very quiet & near to the Clock Cafe, which is excellent. There were times when it was difficult to converse, but we did manage in the end. I do agree with Keith regarding the sockets hanging of the walls as I think we must have had the same room. The bathrooms were... More

We stayed in one of suites next to the pool. The decor of the suite is kitted out in traditional Moroccan style which is exactly what we were after. The Riad is conveniently located in the Kasbah region and only 10-15min walk to the main square and souks, it is also next door to the Clock cafe which is on... More

It was a fantastic experience. First of all is about 15 mins of Djema el Fna Square, a part of the medina not very loud and very quiet. Right next to the Royal Residence of Hassan II in Marrakech and 5 mins to the Saadian tombs. The 6 rooms are fantastic each one and go up in price as they... More

We chose the Riad based on all of the reports that we had seen.. and the night before we left, having seen that every previous write-up was amazing, we then spotted the 'huge disappointment' comment from Keith. Well, we must say, if there had been any issues, then they have all been resolved!...we have travelled to many places and always... More

We stayed here for two nights after three nights in the Atlas mountains as part of a package. In view of the recent reviews we were looking forward to our short stay but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. We were met by Nadia who spoke no English and was not able to supply any information such as... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of June. We were welcomed with mint tea by the pool whilst we filled out the necessary paperwork. Noura (the owner) explained everything to us and gave us a map with a route from the Riad to the main square, along with some recommendations of restaurants. She was very friendly and... More

After the hustle and bustle of the streets, this is very tranquil and a perfect place to get away. I even decided to continue working on my book one morning - no children, telephone calls and just more haggling to look forward to. Some local teenagers showed us the way to the riad when we were lost and proceeded to... More

What a little gem. Prior to going I contacted Riad Shemsi and they replied very quickly, and this efficiency was just how the Riad was run. We stayed at the Riad Shemsi for three nights. Arrived at 10pm and was greeted with mint tea and cakes, very welcome. We stayed in the turquoise room, which is really spacious and has... More
