We booked this on airbnb.com for $50 for one night. Having being in Marrakesh the week before, we were pretty familiar with the square area and knew exactly where the Café de France was per the directions. ****Warning*** If this is your first time in the square area, try to have the Riad meet you in the square to lead...

I stayed here in 2012, April with 3 other friends. The staff was very friendly. We had a massive room with closets and everything was pretty clean. The only downside was the absence of a door for the toilet (which was a bit uncomfortable only because we were boys and girls staying together), but easy to overcome. It was a... More

We stayed here for 8 nights. It's very well located, close to the square and souks with lots of little convenience shops nearby, aesthetically beautiful and very Moroccon, which is great, and it's very tranquil and relaxing. However, there are a few things that stop me from rating it as 'very good'. Firstly, we arrived there at 9pm. As someone... More

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

Is it really chilled down, all the guests sometimes spend the night in the courtyard drinking and chatting, the cool water pool is amazing in the early morning, the breakfast is cheap (3€) and excellent, dogs and cats provided :) For the price and the position is definitly a...

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.
