We stayed here twice in October and all together had three different rooms. The one on the top floor was the best as long as you don't mind all the stairs. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good - typically Moroccan. Staff were very nice. The one downside is the approach to the Riad - down a dark alleyway.... More

This was a great find. If you want to be in the heart of the hustle and bustle but still able to escape to a cool and welcoming riad this is for you. We loved the location only a short walk to the souks and the busy square. The entrance is easy to locate and no alleys that go on... More

Chose this Riad from Trip Advisor wanting to stay in a traditional Riad rather than a hotel. We were not disappointed with this beautiful serene Riad so close to the Madina and yet far enough away from any noise. With some of the most helpful staff we have ever come across and a special thanks to Bibicha whom helped make... More

Riad and room great,authentic,relaxing,what what we wanted Marrakech to be like. Outside hustle and bustle inside serenity. The terrace is a dream . The staff and owners are there to help and this they... More

The riad is located right inside the medina, but not on alleys where you can easily get lost. There are tons of riads inside the medina but this one is just at one corner where you couldn't miss. I understand now why our tour guide prefer to give us this riad. The whole riad feels very traditional and rustic (a... More

We stayed at Riad Alida for 4 nights in the Jasmin room which is a good size double with a seating area and an en suite with a bath. The Riad is clean and comfortable and the staff were courteous and professional. Some clever photography on their website makes the Riad and courtyard look bigger than it is, but it... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in May. Stayed in the Jasmine room. Great location, great staff...all very welcoming and friendly. There is a small taxi rank outside, as well as a small convenience store 1 minute away. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, and although not advertised the rooms can be made into twins. The riad also serves food and... More

The riad is centrally located in the medina, but a little detached from the turbulent souks. All the sights are within walking distance, and in case you want a taxi, there is always one waiting just outside. Once inside you forget the noise and the crowd in the souks and can relax in the sun in a deckchair on the... More

This is a beautiful riad we stayed at with friends, and we all loved the building and location. It is quiet, full of charm, and the rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The central courtyard, with its water pool and plants, is a delightful place to sit and relax or use the internet. The location is fantastic, in the medina,... More

The Riad is in a good location close to all the souks and less than 10 mins from the Dejma el Fna. It is clean and beautifully decorated it is such a shame that the one element that doesnt cost anything should be so lacking; service. When we arrived at the Riad the welcome was frosty, the woman wanted to... More
