Incredible location, exceptional staff, and amazing rooms. Roof deck was out of this world. I've stayed at several other 5 star riads ($$$$) and Ilayka competes with them all at a much more reasonable price. Will stay here again next time I'm in Marrakech.

Amid the hustle and bustle of the Medina and Souks, Riad Ilayka was a beautiful oasis to being and end the day. The rooms are beautifully done - especially the stunning bathroom. The courtyard where breakfast served each day is so tranquil. rooftop catches the breezes on a hot day and where we enjoyed the 3 course in house dinner... More

Riad Ilayka is simply fantastic. Nadia, Mustafa and all the team are supremely good hosts. From a fantastic welcome (where we were met from the taxi), with a selection of divine moroccan patisseries and fresh pineapple juice we knew this would be good. Brilliantly located 5 mins walk from the Jemaa el Fna main square, this hotel hidden behind a... More

Our very friendly Ryad, a converted 14th merchant's house, was tucked away in a maze of arched alleyways called Derbs and yet so close to the main square Djema El Fna and the souks. Our bedroom, furnished in a traditional Moroccan style, opened onto a delightful enclosed courtyard with an attractive fountain, where we ate our breakfasts and dinners. We... More

We have just arrived back from an amazing stay at the Riad Ilayka, what a gorgeous place, behind the massive wooden door is a sanctuary of peacefulness and calm. Our room had a private terrace and was beautifully furnished and very clean to the extent that our stuff was tidied away each day! There is a cool tub (hot tub... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Ilayka and Nadia and her team could not be more accommodating. Returning to the Riad each day was like coming back to an oasis- relaxing, attractive and luxurious. We loved our half day tangine cooking class and appreciated the great recipes we received afterwards. We would highly recommend this Riad! Thank you.

Lovely Riad, just as I imagined it would be. Hidden behind a big wooden door down one of the many alleys, Ilayaka offered a peaceful, welcome with it's cool courtyard and lovely rooms. The food was great and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Truely a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the souks and the nearby... More

We stayed at this Riad for 4 nights and it was lovely. The staff were very attentive and polite and the manager Nadia was great. The food was very good and felt really relaxed here. Do not be put off by the shabby streets and alley ways as behind the Riad doors is a gem of an hotel.

We highly recommend this as a place to stay in Marrakech. The service was very attentive and we were always made to feel very welcomed. In addition to the breakfast service which was wonderful, we also had the fortune to have a tangine dinner on our first evening and the meal was extremely good. The rooms were well appointed and...

The combination of traditional elegance, attentive service, central location and an attractive rate makes Riad Ilayka a top value and choice. The riad is decorated in traditional Moroccan antiques and each room is unique and beautiful. Hanan and her team provided impeccable service. One important consideration is the quality of the outside services they recommend. We booked a city/monument tour... More
