Riad Shaden is a sanctuary in a bustling Medina. Relaxing atmosphere and customer service second to none. Tailoring trips to our own requirements. Supplying meals at the last moment because of our indecisiveness. The most friendly and helpful staff I have met, especially Ronnie, Shona and Sahid. The cockerel next door also kept us highly amused. Other guests were friendly... More

We had a great stay at Riad Shaden. After a nightmare journey to Marrakech which resulted in us being 5 hours delayed, Siad waited up for us until we arrived at 1am and even made us some food as we had ordered dinner for our arrival. He and Youssef were so helpful from booking a three day trip to the... More

Just returned from an amazing trip to Marrakech! Owners of Riad Shaden (Shona and Ronnie from Edinburgh) were so kind and their help and advice was invaluable. The Riad is comfortable ,clean and very affordable. Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful staff and we were looked after exceptionally well. A big thank you to Youssef, Said, and the...

We returned back as happy travellers enriched by our family experience. Youssef and Siad looked after us very well. The Riad was clean; the breakfasts were plentiful. We choose two trips recommended by Youssef – a day trip with a group to Essaouria and a trip to the Ourika Waterfalls with a guide to ourselves. The latter was remarkable. Climbing... More

Riad Shaden was a lovely sanctuary in a turbulent, but rollicking city! It is well situated for walking to the Jemaa el Fna, which can take about 20mins - beware the street kids looking to help you get to the square, they can take you a longer way and then ask for money, and then its never enough - I...

Riad_Safran, Owner at Riad Shaden, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and in particular the amazing food at Riad Shaden. The only comment I would like to add is in response to your bizarre (and in your own words paranoid) suggestion that our staff would somehow be secretly filming you. I know that many Hollywood blockbusters... More

Just spent a week in Marrakech with my wife @ Riad Shaden (7th To 14th Feb 2015) and what a wonderful experience it turned out to be. My wife had visited Marrakech before and told me to expect a cultural adventure and boy was she right. A pre-arranged ride to Riad Shaden (Thanks to the owners Shona and Ronnie) from... More

We stayed at Riad Shaden at the beginning of February. Youseff, Siad and the other staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for us throughout our stay. The riad is ideally situated and only a short 10 minute interesting stroll from the main square. The raid is lovely inside, very clean and there is a sun terrace where you can... More

Other reviewers have praised the friendliness and helpfulness of Youssef and his staff, and we would whole-heartedly agree. Nothing was too much trouble. A delightful place to stay - quiet too, despite the hustle and bustle of medina life that goes on all around. We would recommend a day trip to the coastal town of Essaouira, booked through the riad... More

We have just spent a lovely 4 days at Riad Shaden. The Riad is a 10 minute walk to the main square but is all the better for it. It is in a bustling neighbourhood area which really added to the experience and watching locals going about their daily business was fascinating. We did see other Riads just off the... More

A wonderful stay at Riad Shaden, who went above and beyond when we had to rearrange our trip, we appreciate all your help with Lastminute.com and accomodating us at the last minute!
