We stayed at Guefait Double Room for 2 days. It has been an amazing experience. The room was clean and very well designed. The service was pretty good. The only problem is the location. One useful tip might be to follow the Equity Point signs from the Jamaa el Fna square. This would lead you to the riad next door.

Riad Ilayka is the epitome of friendly, caring, lovely people. It all started with us being given the chance to choose between 2 rooms. We picked the one with the coloured glass window. What a treat! What a lovely room! We spent 2 nights at Riad Ilayka and enjoyed 2 most wonderful dinners. They have a fabulous chef. But please,... More

pros: A very beautiful place! nice maintained; really fabulous interiors. very good rooms and bathrooms. good terrace with sunny spots and nice view. We had a very good dinner there and breakfast is really rich and good. Good location as you are inside the medina but easy to get out avoiding the main place and all the big mess. Exceptionally...

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Riad Ilayka and loved it! It has a great location just a couple minutes from one of the main junctions of the best shopping streets in the medina. The rooms were gorgeously and sumptuously appointed!! The staff was very friendly and efficient, and we've never come across better housekeeping!! The... More

Excellent Riad within 5-10 minutes walking distance Jamaa El Fna. The Riad is hidden amongst the charming alleys of the souks. The service was excellent from all the small team at this Riad. Car transfer can go as far as the square and then you are accompanied by the hotel staff for the short walk. Rooms were excellent and had... More

Hotel Riad Ilayka is an oasis of calm and tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the Medina and the souks of Marrakech. My 3 nights at the riad met my expectations in terms of hospitality, luxury and proximity to key tourist sites - the cafes, hammams, souks, the Medina, Koutoubia Mosque etc. Food was exquisite, breakfast in particular. I... More

Such amazing personalised experience, you really know you are in a good place when you stay here. I strongly recommend the Isilf room, it has a private roof garden. A* venue from me, I... More

Just back from marrakech and the fantastic riad Ilayka. After the short trip from the airport you are met in the main square by one of the hotel staff who help with bags back to the oasis of the riad. The riad is traditional in style with a cool quiet courtyard. The bedrooms lead of this space and are large... More

Lovely place hidden in the medina, Nadja and her staff pamper you from the first minute you arrive until the end. My son was hungry and without any hesitation she made him a delicious chicken sandwich, free of charge! You feel at home, no stress with kids!!!!

This Riad (1) Is absolutely stunning, (2) Is perfectly located, under ten minutes walk from the main square, (3) provides a really special breakfast, (4) has a lovely terrace view, (5) has attentive and helpful staff. One feedback for the manager, who turns out to be the owner too, is just that she seems a bit scared of being really... More
