Such a lovely riad. Good location and the interior was so beautiful. Also the service was very good. The people were so nice and friendly. I loved our room and the breakfasts was so good. It was so good just to hang in the courtyard. My advise to travelers would be, the city is so crowded and chaotic, make sure... More

Originally we planned on spending four nights but ended up staying a full week. It was a great decision! Some of the key points as to why we thoroughly enjoyed are stay at Riad Samarkand are...

I recently returned from a guy's trip to Marrakech with Riad Samarkand serving as our base camp for exploration. The riad is situated ideally, about a ten minute walk from all the main sight seeing and tourist areas. Close enough for access but far enough away for some calm. The riad is also close to ville nouvelle where all the... More

Great experience. Luca, the GM, made the experience, travel, and stay in Marrekech easy, enjoyable, and worthwhile. The hotel was beautifully decorated and very comfortable with amazing views of the city.

As my first time in Marrakech I couldn't expect to be more amazed by this fantastic Riad Samarkand! The service was impeccable! Me and my girlfriend got picked up by a private driver and driven in what we literally called Paradise! The Riad was beautiful, characteristic and very luxurious; also walking distance to the Medina. The bedroom was massive with... More

Great ascension weekend, already thinking to go back. Can't thing of anything to complain. Great atmosphere, service and facilities. Just five suites, so always nice and quiet. Staff was super friendly and we had all our meals over there - much better than all the touristy places. We quickly made friends with some of the shop owners around the corner.... More

It was our first time in Marrakech and we were a bit overwhelmed with the medina but once we got to Riad Samarkand we did not want to leave! It is a hidden gem and we quickly changed pour itinerary so we spent more time at the property. The staff was so helpful and really went out of their way... More

We stayed there with our 8 months old baby and everything was refined , gorgeous and luxurious. We could go shopping around the souks, and the cook babysat our little girl a scarf around her waist, and our baby sleeping sweetly on her. Food was simply a treat. This ryad shows luxury at its essential form. The pool was a... More
