“Beautiful Riad Vert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Our 3 night stay in Riad Vert was fabulous. It might sound cliched but the moment you step through the ancient door from the dusty street you enter a haven of peace where the only sounds are the birds in the palm trees, the trickling fountains and Sanaa offering a chilled beer at the end of a hot day in the Souks! The decor is sumptuous and traditional, with stylish bedrooms and cool seating areas for relaxation and socialising. It feels like being a guest in someone's home. The home-cooked food is traditional and fabulous. The roof terrace is great for a cooling dip in the jacuzzi , a laze in the sun or star-gazing.
Isabel and Sanna are very helpful. Taxis to and from the airport make transfers easy and stress free. Isabel's maps and advice are really helpful. Believe what she says !!!

I spent 4 nights at the Riad Vert in March with three friends.
Much has been said about Sanaa and Isabel and they are
extremely helpful and charming and the Riad is excellent
value for money. However for me the location in the north
of the old city is simply to far from the main square. It is
possible to walk to the main square, takes about 30 minutes
you just keep heading south but it is impossible to find your way
back. We tried on several occassions and got lost each time the
old city is a maze. We always had to get a taxi back which is a problem
as some taxi drivers did not know where the Riad was they have to leave
you at the nearest gate into the old city. Marrakech is fabulous and I
would definitely return but as most of the action is around the square
will stay there next time.

Dear Janetel_11

we are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Riad Vert and you enjoyed your time in Marrakech
About the location of the riad indeed it's not right next to the main square but at 10mn walking from the souks and Madersa Ben Youssef in a very peacefull and real moroccan life.
i confirm you can walk back from the main square easliy during the day light.
At night it's better to take a taxi which is only 4,5€/way with the taxi service of the riad , that we provide to each guest , and coming to the door of the riad ( 20 meters walking only)
and just for information, not all things happening in Marrakech are in the main square but in the new city also ( Gueliz and Hivernage ) so it's not possible to be nearby everything as Marrakech is a big city
Best regards
Isabel Riad Vert

Thankyou to Isabel, Sanaa and all of the staff at the Riad Vert for making our first stay in Marrakech so truely wonderful. Where do I start? We were welcomed to the Riad with mint tea and cakes. Much needed after a very long wait at the airport for the transfer organised by Travel Republic. A tip for people booking, Isabel can arrange airport transfers, please email her directly to arrange this. Isabel arranged for our transfer back to the airport as we didnt want to miss our flight due to a late pick or worse no pick up at all. Our taxi arrived on time and took us directly to the airport. Email the Riad directly if you need any information. contact@riadvertmarrakech.com.

Our room was decorated in beautiful colours with lovely furniture and was perfect in every way. It was cleaned to perfection every day. It is not just the rooms that are kept spotless, all of the Riad is. The Riad itself is exactly as you see in the photos. It is beautiful, so peaceful and calm after days out shopping and walking. Towels are provided for the roof terrace and it has comfortable sun loungers which is rare. We loved the sun hats! Again this is yet another added extra that is provided for you.

Our days out sightseeing and shopping in the souks were made easier by Isabel arranging for a taxi to take us and then giving us a pick up point for when we wanted to go back to the Riad. She provided us with maps and tips on where to go and where not to. Nothing was too much trouble.

Food - again, im lost for words. We ate at the Riad everynight, experiencing moroccan food prepared by Fatima (thank you Fatima). Each night a different meal was served. Starter, main and desert. I think we will both need to diet now we are back.

As two women travelling alone, the minute we stepped into the Riad we knew we were going to be safe, looked after and thoroughly spoilt by everyone. We were treated as friends from the moment we arrived. Thankyou. Whatever we needed, we just asked and it was provided.

We changed money at the Riad (at a very good rate) which saved us the hassle of finding a bureau de change also free wifi is available which is another added bonus.

Riad Vert was a real find for us. Our trip was made so much more unforgettable through staying here and meeting the lovely genuine people who run it. Thankyou again. Our only regret is that we did not stay long enough. We will return. Elaine and Ali xx

We stayed for a week last week. It's a beautiful riad- our first, and quite different from the usual " corporate" hotels we stay in.
We were in the " Penthouse suite" which as a great window overlooking the street which was entertainment in itself, peering out.
The service was excellent, the food yummy, and the house keeping first rate.
Isabelle and Sanaa were very gracious and kind and we made some lovely friends in the Sitting area.
It's about 1 mile to the medina. From the Riad, turn right , right again, keep walking - past the Music man statue, and Iron Works, towards the PO. Keep going ahead then turn right. You will past nice shops that are cheaper than in the Medina. I got a lovely kaftan for 100 drhms. You may pass a street cafe on the right. I can recommend the food there too!
I can recommend the Riad for peace and quiet after lots of great shopping!!

Booking something on lastminute.com you're never to sure how is going to be.
But wow.
This is Marrakechs hidden gem and oasis.
The rooms were cleaned every day, the food cooked by Fatima was amazing.... its true Morrocan cuisine.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough. Sanaa and the staff are a credit to this riad.

We will be back to stay.
Thank you.
Merci Beaucoup.

Myself and my friend stayed here just for 3 nights from the 27th Feb and i now wish we had booked for longer!..What a lovely lovely place!!..I have visited Marrakech before but only in the new town, not in the old town...Wow..what a difference!!..We arrived in the eve after a short taxi ride (which Sanaa had kindly arranged for us) and my friend was a little unsure of the area as we drove through the narrow winding streets as it was like a maze of small alleyways!..I expected this so it didnt bother me atall..however she did relax as soon as we entered the Riad..Oh wow!!..What really beautiful place!..We were greeted by Sanaa who kindly made us a refreshing mint tea and lovely morrocan cakes so we could relax for a few mins before we were shown to our room.
Our room was really nice..very quaint!..Not ever so large but we didnt expect it to be and as we only sleep there it dosnt need to be..the bathroom was beautiful, bed linen and towels changed every day and the lady who cleaned our rooms(not sure of her name) was very good..she even took my friends t-shirt that she had previously hand washed and re washed it, dryed and ironed it and returned it the next day!..How thoughtful!!..
We had previously booked to eat there on our first night and we also ate there on our last night and i have to say...the food was absolutely excellent!!..The cook Fatima is a credit to the place!.My favourite was the lamb tagine with prunes and apricots..Mmmmmm..delicious!!..Keep up the fantastic cooking Fatima!!..The breakfasts were also very nice, typicaly moroccan with pancakes and breads, jams, cheese, honey etc...But if you wanted something different then you only had to say and they would prepare it for you..we were more than happy with the moroccan breakfast tho..
There is a really beautiful roof terrace where you can relax after a tiring day walking around the souks and even a rooftop jacuzzi!..fantastic!! A Lovely undercover seating area and sunbeds too..just a beautiful relaxing place to unwind..listening to the neighbouring children playing...It was total bliss!!
Finally, the most credit really has to go to the lovely Sanaa!!!!..I can honestly say i have never ever met such a lovely,helpful,hard working, happy, accomodating host!!..She really couldn't do enough for us!..Nothing was too much trouble for her. She gave us a map and explained in detail how to get to djema al fna square from the Riad..And we were so grateful that she did!..We did'nt get lost either!!..And she also gave us the phone number for Ahmed the taxi driver they use if we wanted a taxi back from the square..which we did!!..otherwise we would never have found our way back!..All we had to do was call him 15 mins before and he has a pick up point which is KFC Just outside the square..Sanaa also recommended a restaurant to us if we didnt want to eat at the riad every night..so we did this on our 2nd night..A man from the restaurant comes to meet you and walks you to the restaurant and then walks you back at the end of eve!.also very nice food there..well worth a visit!!
All in all our 3 days at the Riad Vert was perfect from start to finish and i will definately be returning!..Thankyou so much Sanaa for looking after us & i'l look forward to seeing you again!.
Keep up the fantastic work you're doing!!..
Vicki & Kathy

Have just returned from four days in Marrakech, staying at the Riad Vert.
Every good review we read turned out to be true!
It exceeded all our expectations and was the most welcoming and calm antidote to the craziness of the medina.
Isabelle and Sanna made us feel very at home and cared for. Making sure we had everything we needed and answering all our questions as it was our first trip to Marrakesh.
We ate at the Riad every night as Fatima's cooking was excellent and she cooked us a variety of traditional dishes. The lamb tagine with prunes and the lightest cous cous was our favourite. The breakfasts were also lovely , slightly different each day and all home made.
Aicha kept our room spotless every day, and the whole Riad was beautifully kept in her serene manner.
The whole Riad is so tranquil with lots of different areas to relax and a wonderful roof terrace which we sunbathed on and enjoyed a beer in the evening after a busy day at the souks!
We were happy the Riad wasn't too near the centre and it was in a quiet and interesting area where we weren't hassled. It was an interesting walk/ or cheap taxi ride to the centre anyway.
Thanks to everyone at Riad Vert for making us feel so special and at home, it made our holiday unforgettable.
We hope to come back soon .
Vivienne and Alan from London.
