Slightly away from all of the tourist bustle of the Place Djemaa al Fna, this wonderful Riad was an oasis in the bedlam that is the medina, and one that we would recommend to anyone without hesitation. The pre booked transfer from the airport dropped us at the gate into the medina where we were met by Youssef (The manager)... More

The service from all the staff at the Riad was outstanding despite a slight mix up on the night we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel extremely welcome. The room we were in was clean and comfortable and overlooked the courtyard. The TV wasn't working which I was quite pleased about! Only possible problem... More

I stayed at Riad Shaden either side of a week in Essaouira at the Gnaoua Festival. From the moment we arrived, the staff did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble, from organising transfers, fixing us up at a hammam, reserving a restaurant, supplying all kinds of information, or just fetching a pot... More

This a very comfortable, clean and conveniently located riad. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the bab Aylen gate, and 10-15 minutes walk to the Place Djemaa el-Fna. The riad was good value, I have stayed in a self catered riad which wasn't as nice for not much less per night. Towels and toiletries are provided. My room... More

We had the most amazing time at Riad Shaden. Transfers were arranged to collect us and take us back to the Riad which was great.

We were met at arrivals in Marrakech airport by the pre-booked taxi driver, and from that moment on our stay in Morrocco was a blissful, stress-free escape from London living - mostly thanks to the support and kindness of Youssef and the team at Riad Shaden. We were taxied through the city to the outer gate, with the driver pointing... More

My husband and I moved forward our holiday in Marrakech from June to April and I am very glad we did as it was roasting in April! The Riad was a great place to stay. Since it was out of the main tourist area, we felt we were able to experience what life was like for locals in Marrakech rather... More

Unfortunately wedding celebrations and cats are outwith our control, however it is worth pointing out that only one of our 6 rooms has a window to the outside rather than to the internal courtyard. More
