“A lovely hideaway in Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a lovely Riad tucked away in the heart of the medina in Marrakech. The owners, Eric and Noemi, are incredibly friendly, and very service oriented. They were able to make many recommendations on things to see and when to see them, as well as some great restaurant and hamamm recommendations. The orange blossoms inside were in bloom when we were there, and the entire place smelled of the intoxicating fragrance. What a great smell to wake up to!

The breakfast was fresh every morning, and while it was a typical sweet-laden Moroccan breakfast, it was absolutely delicious! I would come back here in a heartbeat, and highly recommend it to my friends!

A lovely place to stay if you're looking for authentic Marrakech inside the medina as opposed to western style hotels outside the city walls. Other reviwers have done a great job already of describing the riad so I won't repeat what they have said. Suffice to say the english speaking french owners, Eric and Noemie, are delightful and together with their trusty team of Abdel and Radeesha cannot do enough for you whether you want your breakfast served on the roof terrace (a must on a warm sunny morning) or just general advice about what to do, where to eat or how much to pay. Eric even went to another riad to find us an english language guide book to the city; it may have been 10 years old but it was much more detailed and informative than the guide book we'd brought with us from London and let's face it, Marrakech is a city of history which doesn't change. Enjoy your stay at Riad des Artistes !

In a small alleyway in the heart of the Medina of Marrakech, I found this wonderful property. The owner's Eric and Noemie contributed greatly to making my stay memorable. Noemie was very generous in personally driving me into the countryside to visit with a local farming family. The property is decorated with many costly pieces by local artists and craftsman. Just step outside the front door and you are surrounded by the sights and sounds that make Marrakech one of the world's great desinations.

We were looking for a beautiful place in the heart of Marrakech Medina and we found it at Le Riad des Artistes. It was perfectly located in the medina, a few steps from wonderful Jamaa El Fna square. Staff was warm and attentionate, always here when needed, never disturbing. The Riad itself is gorgeous with orange trees and chemineys, fresh courtyard and even a small pool to refresh after a hot day in the city. Tea time, in this calm and silencious place contrast perfectly with agitation of the streets of Marrakech. We'll go again !

The Riad des Artistes is exactly what you're looking for when arriving in Marrakech: it's clean, quite, elegant and a great workload has been put on details.
Long live Riad des artistes, the only downside is that they book out quickly as they have only 4 rooms. But yet again: small is beautiful!
Keep up the great work Eric and Noemie!
