I have to be honest, I do not like Marrakesh. I think it is a busy, crowded, hectic, mad place and I actually visited it so many times before (mostly because of the airport). And yet again, I had to spend a few days in Marrakesh again, this time with my family. After a while hesitating to book anything I... More

I stayed here with a friend for a birthday trip. I was pleasantly surprised when arriving at this place after being dropped of in the hustle and bustle of the markets in medina. It is set back in some winding back walkways, but I was happy when I arrived. This place a little place of traditional Morocco in a clean... More

As others have stated Riad Armelle is very much a little piece of tranquillity, which for us was much needed whilst in Morocco. It fair to say though that this place isn't for everyone. If your expecting a European style Hotel then its best that you go a find one as this place isn't for you. However that's not to... More

Great Riad in the Medina. Manager and staff where extremely helpful and very efficient. They were a pleasure to deal with and were a mine of information on the delights of the Medina and Morocco in general. The Riad was a haven of peace and quiet after the noise and confusion of the Medina. Bedroom air condition was very welcome... More

I arrived at the Riad in quite a state, having had great difficulty finding a taxi driver who knew where the Riad was. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Armelle herself and made to feel so welcome. She went out of her way to make sure that I was given a room which was to my liking. I chose the... More

Stayed here in February for a week with our 14 month old baby and had a great time. Charming building with a superb double courtyard and roof terrace. Food exquisite each night (we ate in due to having a little one). Staff were the friendliest I've encountered, from the breakfast team the room staff and evening. All went to great... More

We have just spent a delightful week at this beautiful Riad hidden in the Medina. It has been lovingly restored by its French owners and its a gem, very quiet and peaceful and very authentic. Our experience was nothing like that of the last reviewer and we were treated with nothing but respect and helpfulness by all of the staff.... More
