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

We were a little dubious about staying here as, although it has an 81% average rating on hostelworld, the reviews seemed very mixed - people either loved it or thought it was awful. Our taxi dropped us off at the end of a road leading to the Jemaa al Fna, and as soon as we stepped out with our suitcase... More

Riad Medina Azahara was certainly the best place I've chosen after looking exhaustively for a hotel under 50 euros a night, including breakfast, with good reviews on friendliness/ cleanliness but still not far away from Djemaa El Fna. We booked a double room for 7 nights and we loved it! The owner and staff were really helpful when we had... More

After a couple of nights in the beautiful Dar Bamileke, we took the chance to try few nights in the hostel. Well that was cool! Young and fresh atmosphere, the perfect solution for backpackers or low budget traveller! Close to the ja El Fna Sq, in a quiet road just ouside the busy market. Friendly and usefull staff. Big terrace... More

we stayed here for 2 nights and then fought to get out money back to stay somewhere else for the third night. It was a cramped dorm with 1 bathroom to share so it was always full and difficult to actually wash in the morning. things went missing from my bag - small things, nothing hugely important, but still things...

A low quality youth hostel rather than a riad. Place to be avoided specially in the winter. No heating at all, although it was freezing in the room. I saw a traveller sleeping dressed with her coat and wool cap on. On the web it shows there are rooms of more than 6 people, never saying you can be sleeping... More
