Amazing place, very clean and quiet (far from the muezzin's call to prayer and you won't regret it). Good location but if you go back late at night don't trust young guys who offer to guide you as they will get you lost and then ask for money. Ask women and older men of you are lost in the medina...

The Riad is very beautiful, a peace of heaven in the middle of Marrakech. It's located in a typical muslim neighbourhood, a little bit outside the souks and Djemaa El Fna, but its charm it's exactly in this point. The location may scare you at the first time, but if you use the square Bab Taghzout as as a reference... More

Located in the North of the Medina, it's a little hard to find, but for a small fee you'll find some locals who will guide you there. Rooms are quite comfortable and nicely decorated, especially the bathroom. It's all clean and the service is very good. Although quite expensive for moroccan standards, staying in a riad is definetly worth the... More

We stayed at Riad Elixir in low season and snapped up an excellent rate, but I would have no hesitation in staying here even in high season. I could rave about everything from the free breakfast in the courtyard, the tasteful and spotless rooms with modern conveniences, the charming owners and the incredible and caring Fatima, but I won't bore...

Our trip to Marrakesh was a delight thanks to the wonderful Riad Elixir. We were met at the airport by a driver and spirited inside the Medina, arrival at Riad Elixir was the beginning of a most outstanding Marrakesh experience. The hospitality offered by Hassan and Fatima was superb. Our host Hassan arranged a guide to show us the palaces... More

The service was wonderful... it's a little off the beaten path, so if you are comfortable getting your way there, book it. (you'll be most liley approched by children anyway offering to guide you home for a fee anyway).

We stayed here for a night last year and although it's a bit of nightmare to find had a good couple of days. It's recently renovated and the family-run business cannot to enough to help you, despite a few language barriers! (my french, their english!). It's incredibly clean and the breakfasts were amazing. It's not a grand old riad but... More

Hi travellers, we stayed at Riad Elixir in Marrakech at the end of October. It´s pretty new and very beautifully done. Has an amazing terrace at the top where you can relax after a long day at the crazy Medina. It has a patio with a small pool too. The staff was very friendly-Said & Fatima- and very hepfull with...
