We stayed at Riad Media Azahara aka "So cheap so chic riad with pool" as a group of three in early July. It's very well located, just off Derb Dabachi and is less than 5 minutes from Jemaa El Fna. The place itself is relatively simple to find except that there is no name on the door besides the door... More

The environment is belo, the structure also, the breakfast good and the staff pleasant. the only problem that downgrades the riad are animals. I love animals, but not qunado have access everywhere and are not educated, they leave their droppings everywhere including sofas and pillows where you sit and eat.

After the extraordinary experience of being picked-up at the airport of Marrakech (which you should make use of if you have never been in Marrakech before!) we arrived at this lovely, peacefull riad just outside at the Jema el Fna square. Run by a lovely italian lady together with her marrocan husband. The staff is also very helpful and friendly... More

I visited last September and really wanted to have a special time in Marrakesh. I did not have a huge budget and am so pleased I found this little gem of a Riad. It was the perfect place to chill out in and was in a GREAT location (once you found it!!). We got in a bit of trouble trying... More

Great location! Directly in the medina, only couple minutes walking from the main square. Cossy place with good service and nice rooms (always ask about the orange room :). You can not hear any noise from the streets. Nice patio and roof top!

The place is amazing! There's a huge courtyard that opens up to the sky with trees and you can have breakfast out there. There's also a large open roof terrace awesome for meeting other travelers. Theres also a cute black puppy that runs around in the courtyard with older dogs that arent as cute, but still nice.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this Riad for 3 nights and we truly loved this little Riad. Its right in the heart of the Medina and from there you can explore Marrakesh by foot. Courtyard is fab for chilling with some fab mint tea and a shisha before stepping into the busy streets of Marrakesh. We loved the settings... More

Really good location near the Medina but not right on it. Very safe for belongings. When you walk in its really stunning in the central court. The plunge pool is nice to have there but no one uses it to go in. The trees are very cooling though and the roof terrace is boiling and gorgeous to look at, and... More
