We visited this Riad as part of a 2 weeks holiday in Morocco with my wife and my 3.5 years old daughter. The riad is "lost" into the maze of little streets that compose Marrakesh' old town. However, as we requested a pick up, we were "escorted" until the front door. Once learnt the way, it was really easy and... More

Riad Samarkand felt absolutely authentic in every way. The staff went out of their way to provide for our every need, in a calm, quiet and really genuine manner. It was very clean, beautifully and stylishly decorated and very well run. We enjoyed several delicious dinners in a wonderful candle lit room, and our breakfast was served on our terrace... More

Riad Samarkand is in a great location with easy accessibility to cooking classes at Maison Arabe, wonderful lunches at Terrraces des epices and Le Jardin, shopping in the souks and taxis to take you out of the Medina. Our room was beautifully decorated, spacious, quiet, with cool breezes and great air conditioning. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace and... More

Such a wonderful place ! Everything here is made and done for your pleasure and comfort. The place is quiet, beautiful, refined in every detail. Every room is differently decorated, with great taste and carefully chosen furniture and great bathrooms. We were on a family trip, which is nice, because booking the four rooms turn the place into a private... More

Very kind and courteous staff make this tranquil riad a real pleasure to stay in. My friend and I had a spacious twin room overlooking the courtyard, and felt that we had the place to ourselves. We chilled out by the plunge pool every afternoon (watched by the resident tortoises) and it was wonderfully peaceful. Everything works and it's nicely... More

End May 2014 visit for 1 week - 2 x 50-somethings on yet another anniversary/birthday jaunt. Simply, Riad Smarkand provided a great base for sampling both the old and new in Marrakech plus a day out to the coast (Essaouira) - our driver (Haj) was excellent throughout the day. Staff at Samarkand are polite, helpful and superbly managed by Pierre,... More

This Riad is really like arriving in a oasis after being lost in the desert: it is a dream come true! As soon as you get into the courtyard, which is a green setting, it feels you are in another world and another time. First of all, It is so quiet and peaceful you really enjoy not to be anymore...
