“Great place ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We stayed here for a few days over new years. Really excellent with wonderful staff, and great in riad dining. Breakfast was good and the owner always had a few beers on hand in the fridge when needed. (Useful when it's hard to get them in many restaurants.

Highly recommended.

Stayed for a week in November 15. Weather was hot being 26 to 28 degrees every day. The Riad was always a comfortable temperature and didnt need Air Conditioning units to stay that way.
Bourcin the manageress did everything she could to make the stay a pleasant one and she was always available with friendly advice on Marrakech.
The only detraction was some noisy fellow guests, but I think they were the exception to the rule.
Stay here for a good value Riad in the heart of the medina, though it is a good 15 minute walk to Jemma El Fna

Room Tip: Pick one on the first floor

The location of this Riad was good, a 15min walk from the main square which is easy once shown it on a map. We were glad we opted for the airport transfer, as we would've struggled to find it ourselves (a taxi couldn't take you all the way there-streets to narrow). The area felt very safe, at all hours of day or night. We did get a nice welcome, with mint tea. The Riad was quite noisy at night (this might just have been due to especially noisy guests, not sure if it is always that way). One day we didn't get breakfast (despite trying to hunt for someone between 8am-8.30am, breakfast is supposedly served 8am-10am), we were off on a trip that day, so could've done with a good breakfast. This is the only hotel/Riad I've ever visited where they asked for cash payment first thing on arrival (before we'd stayed any of the 3 nights) and quite a hefty city tax was added on to the advertised/booked price. This is a decent base, but I'd probably stay elsewhere next time. We did not meet Burchin mentioned in other reviews, so I wonder if there has been a recent change in management?!
The wifi was free and had really good signal.

Although the Riad is really close to the souks it is really quiet and Burcin is very knowledgeable and will help you to make the most of your visit. The rooms are lovely and the breakfasts set you up for the madness of Marrakech. I would also recommend getting the riad to send someone to ick you up from the airport - this will cost you about £10 but when you see where the riad is you will understand, taxis do go from the nearest square so you save on the return to the airport.

Although we had booked the Riad L'Orchidee we were taken to a different Riad in the same area. I checked the paperwork that the lady checking us in had and it had Riad L'Orchidee written on it and she told us they were a chain of Riads (it was late and we were tired so probably too accepting of the explanation). On getting home I checked our booking and we were definitely booked in with Riad L'Orchidee and not where we were checked into. The Riad we ended up in although pleasant was not the same spec as we were expecting: no in room Wifi (had to go downstairs in the public area), no restaurant so no lunch / dinner dining options, no beauty/massage treatments. L'Orchidee may well be lovely but not much help when they pick and choose where they actually put you despite your booking.
