Three of my friends and I stayed in 2 rooms at Riad Samarkand for 4 nights. The riad is beautiful and well cared for and the rooftop terrace was very pleasant. The best dinners we had in Marrakech were at the riad and the breakfasts were delicious and LARGE. We were served wine and appetizers on the roof whenever we... More

Riad Samarkand is a beautifully restored building - it's sublime after the hustle of the streets of Marrakech. The garden in the courtyard is peaceful and relaxing, the rooms are stunning, the décor perfect. We had expected a beautiful hotel, but what we hadn't expected was the wonderful evening meals we were served. The cooking was some of the best... More

Our second visit to Riad Samarkand. It is the perfect oasis with fabulous attentive service, the most beautiful furnishings and garden. Our host Pierre is incredibly helpful and courteous and we will be back!

Aften 7 days at Riad Samarkand we rate it 5 plus plus. We have been to Marocco several times but in the future we look forward to return to Riad Samarkand. We had booked dinner for the night of arrival and loved it so much that we ate at the Riad 4 times. The manager, Pierre, is a fantastic host.... More

We arrived after a long journey in the late afternoon. To go through the narrow dark alleys and end up in front Aladins beautiful black door as was opened by smiling friendly staff and a Riad which was lit by candlelight gave us a proper feeling that we had really come to the real Samarkand. The rooms were like a... More

We had a fantastic time at Riad Samarkand - the central garden with the pool (and tortoises) is cool and soothing, our room was amazing (huge, beautifully decorated, comfortable bed) and the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff (especially Pierre) was the icing on the cake. We stayed five nights and had dinner in the riad three times - wonderful... More

Riad Samarkand is a beautifully restored Riad in the Bab Doukkala area within easy reach of the souks and place Jemaa el Fnaa on foot. The staff were friendly and helpful. The dinner we had on arrival was excellent and the breakfast good, though lacking variety after 7 days. Nevertheless, we felt it was missing that special attention to detail... More

Behind a shiny black gate away from the bustling Souks within the Medina lies Riad Samarkand.The courtyard is an oasis of palm trees, lush greenery, water-fountain with colorful rose-petals, small swimming-pool and a tiny lazy turtle, blissful quietude occasionally interrupted by birds. Our rooms were large and decorated in warm dark tones authentic to North Africa, cozy and rustic at... More

We sort of stumbled upon this place, since the Riad we had tried to book was full and passed us on to the Samarkand. The building and renovation is beautiful, and really captures the elegance of the structure and the beautiful garden, whilst offering the facilities we all seek these days. What surprised us was the quality of the food:... More

We stayed with our 3 year old daughter in Riad Samarkand in the run up to Easter. It was our first visit to Marrakech, and it was absolutely superb. The riad was delightful, as were all the staff, who babysat for our daughter on two nights. The room was lovely with a gorgeous semi-private terrace. The riad is a ten... More
