Thank you for your great review of our riad and our wonderful staff. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding your comments about the surroundings, the medina of Marrakech can initially be a culture shock for some people! The streets are narrow, and often busy, but that is part of the Marrakech experience, and... More

My first trip to Marrakech with 14 of my friends proved to be quite an experience! Riad Shaden and Said made this trip amazing for us! We arrived at the airport and were greeted by our driver and a small bus...perfect for our large group. The Riad is located in an area where there are no cars allowed so be... More

I stayed at Riad Shaden in May 2014 as part of my adventure to Morocco and Spain. They were wonderful every step of the way - from confirming the booking, to the airport pickup (which took way longer than expected because my luggage was lost), to arranging a return trip to and back from the airport to get my luggage...

A really nice place to stay inside the Medina in Marracech and a short way to the Jemaa el Fna. Soo nice staff, Said and the two ladies cleaning and cooking most polite, helpful and making the stay a really nice experience. The Amir suite was a good room to sleep, and the riad is charming in every way.

This Riad is an oasis in a wonderful city. The house is beautiful and comfortable. AC in the bedroom was very welcome. The rooftop terrace was a fantastic way to end the day. Breakfast was lovely, served in the court yard. The freshly squeezed orange juice was the best I have had anywhere. Riad Shaden has so many positive points... More

My partner and I recently stayed in Riad Shaden as part of our trip to Morrocco. The Riad is beautiful with excellent staff and fabulous service. They also offer a range of trips in to the desert, taxis to and from the airport or help and advice on places to eat, where to buy things - making life so much... More

Before arriving at Riad Shaden the welcome at the airport from Abdul who drove us there was great. It totally makes sense to arrange the airport transfer through the Riad. On arrival Youssef was there to greet at us at the gate and accompanied us to the Riad. Riad Shaden was gorgeous. All the public space was very comfortable and... More

This riad is set about 10-15 minutes from the main square. When you arrive at the riad and enter through the maze of small streets you find a fantastic, small, but intimate riad. The rooms are traditionally furnished and very comfortable. What made this holiday special was the excellent service. I cannot praise Youssef and Said enough as they were... More
