We have stayed in many riads in Marrakech from top to mid range. We stayed here as a party of 6 in January and adored our stay. Ilayka is brilliantly situated for the souks and square and in getting to it you are immediately immersed in the atmosphere that makes up the medina. It is beautifully renovated and furnished in...

If you ever go to Marrakech never stay in a hotel always stay in a Riad and the Riad Ilayka is one I would have not hesitation in recommending having stayed in some not very good hotels in Morocco. When you come through the door there is a profusion of flowers, plants, peace and the sound of water it certainly... More

Stayed one night only - Thank goodness! Following a rainy morning, we checked into the Riad. It was found down a series of alleys at the back of the Souk. Looked reasonably authentic and had been recently refurbished, supposedly at great expense. Up to the room and there was found to be no lights. Various lamps changed and OK again.... More

The experience of staying in a riad is something of a shock! First you walk trough a maze of streets and tunnels in the medina and your head spins with all the sights and smells and sounds- people speak to you and touch you and try to interest you in their merchandise. Then all of a sudden you stand in... More

My wife and I stayed here for five wonderful nights. It was our first trip to Marrakech. The riad's central location in the Medina, was perfect for walking to all of the major sites.

We loved everything about the Riad Ilayka. The atmosphere, the staff, the look, the placement. It was all amazing. Nadia, Moutaa, Abullah, Hassan and the girls made the stay unforgetable.
