We've just enjoyed our third dinner at Riad Shaden, all fresh food skilfully prepared, delightful flavours, generous portions. We have loved our stay here, a great base both for exploring the medina and for setting out on excursions with charming driver Fariss. Our large room at the end of the balcony is spacious and decorated with beautiful tiles and decorative... More

Excellent Riad in the heart of the Medina Marrakech, friendly and helpful staff within the Riad helped to organise daily excursions, Youssef and Sayeed speak excellent English also thanks to Abdul the driver who took us to Essaaouira and the Atlas mountains The Riad is a true sanctuary in the heart of the madness that is the narrow streets of...

Lovely little homely Riad in an amazing location, within walking distance from the Medina and also a very peaceful haven from the madness of the medina and the hassle at the souks! Youseff was the perfect host and nothing was too much bother. Lovely and quiet when inside and absolutely fantastic food. Be sure to try the chicken, olive and... More

This is the real deal. It is not a five star hotel in a posh location, which you can get in any city, which are 'nice' but where you never experience what the place is truly like. This is a typical Riad located in the midst of where the locals live, down a blind alley, off a working street. The... More

Spent 5 days in Marrakech and stayed at Riad Shaden! Absolutely wonderful and the staff were out of this world! Very very friendly and could not do enough for us! The food was excellent and they sorted out all our day trips at very competitive prices! 10 out of 10! Highly recommend this Riad!

With one exception I am happy to agree with most of the earlier TA comments on this Riad. Background to the exception is the fact that we are a couple in our mid-seventies and I walk slowly with a walking stick. Earlier comments on the time to walk from the Riad to the main square are 10, 15 or 20... More

A friend who has stayed at this Riad in the Medina many times, organised a mini-break for 6 of us, & we could not have had a better placed or more comfortable base from which to explore Marrakech. 5 of us were visiting Morocco for the first time, & were fascinated by the immediate area & its many small food...

I stayed with a group of friends at this lovely Riad. It is situated in the Medina surrounded by locals rather than in a tourist area and is about a 15 minute walk to the central square in the old town. All the rooms are lovely and we really enjoyed using the rooftop terrace. The manager Youssef and all the... More

I stayed at Riad Shaden for a long weekend with some friends, as there were six of us we booked the whole Riad, which meant we had an en-suite room each. The Riad itself is located in the Bab-Aylon district in the medina (old town) and is a 15 minute walk from the famous square Djemma el Fna. It's location... More

I have just returned from another wonderful stay at the beautiful Riad Shaden, Marrakech where the staff - Manager Youssef, Assistant Manager Said and Sanaa and Sadia - go out of their way to make your stay perfect. We were met at the airport by a driver arranged by Youssef, and escorted to the Riad by Said. The Riad is... More
