“The Perfect Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were a group of 8 girls looking for a place to stay for a week in Marrakech, not the easiest task for a bunch of indecisive people! We eventually and THANKFULLY stumbled across Riad Bel Haj and it was so much more than everything we expected. All of us loved it and Morocco would not have been the same in any other place. By the end of the week the Riad staff were more than just friendly people in uniforms, they were like family, and we miss their merry selves so much! We can never thank them enough. If we ever return to Marrakech, we know just the place to chill. Riad Bel Haj is an awesome, awesome cute and cosy place in the heart of the Old Medina.
Thanks to everyone who made our stay so special!

Room Tip: All rooms are awesome :D

Riad Bel Haj was stunning. We were greeted by friendly staff who took care of us throughout our stay. We ate here and Riad Adore, which I have to say were the best meals of the holiday. We were completely spoilt! Absolutley stunning riads, I can't recommend enough!

What a stunning place to visit. Such fantastic and attentive staff, forever smiling.
We arrived in the evening and found the villa to be so beautiful. We had dinner in the courtyard and could not believe how much food we managed to consume. The staff were so helpful and great to be around. The terrace overlooked so much of the city and was a fantastic place to have a glass of wine and unwind from a hectic day in the souks.

I would recommend this villa to everyone and anyone - it was absolutely fantastic!

We were recommended this riad by a friend and it was perfect. Beautifully decorated and friendly staff. Delicious food and perfect location. Couldn't fault it except the pool is tiny. If I visit Marrakech again I would definitely stay here again.

Yet another very enjoyable stay. The staff are still fantastic and caring. Will visit again. We also visited the beautiful Riad Adore and had most of our meals there as we were with a party of 44 people from London.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor where there are two rooms. Ours was delightful.

Having spent the last week in lovely Riad Bel Haj, I can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in a perfectly positioned, charming riad in Marrakech, with the most attentive and caring staff you could wish for. You are steps away from the Souk and the Square, making it the perfect place to stay to explore this fascinating city. The friendly staff could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible, and the rooms were spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. On the roof terrace you can sunbathe or watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of delicious chilled Moroccan rose, or have a dip in the pool in the pretty courtyard below. Despite being so central, the riad is quiet and peaceful - a little haven of tranquility to return to after the hustle and bustle of the Souk. I look forward to returning, and highly recommend it.

I stayed at both Riad Bel Haj and Riad Adore, two of Stuart's 5 riads in Marrakech, from 17-30 April 2013. What a find! These are two 4 and 5 roomed riads that are sumptuously and tastefully decorated, yet still cosy and with a great family atmosphere. The staff are truly amazing and they will help with anything that you need. One of the riad ladies took me to the local barber, sat there while I got my beard trimmed then escorted me back to the riad. The night guard called me on my mobile one night, when I stayed out later than planned, just to make sure I was safe.

The riads are located in the middle of the old city and very accessible to the markets. You will of course get lost in the narrow streets at first but that's all part of the fun! Excellent breakfast served on the terrace or the courtyard and beautifully cooked dinners available at night if required. I would definitely recommend staying at these riads.

Room Tip: In the Riad Bel Haj the room with the best Wi-Fi reception is directly above the living room area.

Perfectly located in the Medina, Riad Bel Haj is situated in the Ksour district, only 5 min walk from Jemaa el Fna square, the Koutoubia mosque and the Souks. Ksour is one of the most required districts of Marrakech for its peace, in spite of the closeness of Jemaa El Fna square. Riad Bel Haj offers an oasis of calm and serenity, rhythmic by the remote calls to the prayer of Koutoubia and birds song. The riad, recently renovated with taste and respect of the Moroccan traditions, offers nevertheless to the visitors a modern and comfortable place to remain in Marrakech. Magnificiently decorated and brightened up with artistic achievements and authentic Moroccan materials, the riad also has modern equipment such as reversible air conditioning, free WiFi access The riad is located in the middle of a quiet and well lightened derb and very easy to find, in Bab Ksour, very closed from restaurants and stores of Gueliz, Marrakech modern district.
