When we first arrived from the airport we were met by Badr who walked us a few minutes through the streets to get to the riad. We couldn’t believe the peace and quiet inside, after the noisy, crowded streets we had left outside. We had mint tea on arrival and then the most fantastic dinner, which we had pre-ordered the...

From start to finish the service we received from the staff at Riad Shaden could not be faulted. Youssef and Badr were always available to give help and advice, and nothing was ever too much trouble, day or night. Both spoke perfect English, and although they were always happy to chat they didn't once try to push us to do... More

My sister and I stayed at Riad Safron last month. The Riad is beautifully decorated throughout. We arrived early evening and had every intention of venturing to the Medina but decided after travelling a meal at the Riad would be very welcome. Youseff kindly arranged this at short notice, nothing was too much trouble for him and the staff at... More

As a single traveller I was overwhelmed by the attention to detail of the staff in Riad Shaden. The location is ideal to explore the old town and get immersed in the unique culture, only a short taxi ride from the new town if traditional shops are required. Breakfast is a joy and depending on the weather (which is usually... More

A stress free drive in from the airport courtesy of the pre-booked transfer, and then like most of the writers of the prior reviews I had read before booking this Riad, I was struck by the calm and serenity that hits as soon as you walk through the door. Welcoming mint tea and no language barrier as both Youseff the... More

booked Riad Shaden as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend, I chose it because of the lovely photo of the suite room amir suite and from reading other reviews. I could not have made a better choice! The riad immediatly contacted us to arrange a transfer as soon as we booked and to offer us a reasonably priced dinner which... More

As the car stopped I began to wonder what gems lay behind those ancient doors and what a surprise it was! The greeting and initial hospitality and the constant genuine 'being looked after feeling' was there throughout the whole trip! Youssif, Badr, Abdul were always there at our beck and call and always quick with options and fought out corner... More

We enjoyed a fantastic short break to Marrakech over the August bank holiday. I was delighted that I had chosen Riad Shaden as it proved to be such a calm, cool and welcoming place to retreat to after a frenetic day in the souks. Everything was well organised, with a smooth transfer from the airport, courtesy of Abdul, and then... More

Riad Shaden - second to none Seamless, exceptional five star quality from airport to destination. I arrived after a four hour flight from Edinburgh airport to be met by Abdul, a very friendly and informative driver and within 30 minutes I was at the Riad. Riad Shaden is ideally located within a 15 minute walk from Djemma El Fna square,... More

It's hard to fault Riad Shaden, really. Although it's a fair walk from the main square (we beat a well worn path through motor bike fumes and crowds at least twice a day) it provides an oasis of peace and tranquility in what seems like a very safe area. The place is kept spotlessly clean and tidy, and the extra... More
