“BEWARE Mr Nice Guy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

this riad is in a good location, thats about it.
The 'charming' manager sold us a tour that was quoted in Dirham and was changed to Euros on our return, an absolute and complete stitch up ! His mate the driver was also Mr Smooth, we were VERY RIPPED OFF.Very dissapointed and a considerable amount of euros poorer.
The hammam on site was a grubby little room for 100dh you couldnt even get up a sweat, local hammam 10dh around the corner.
The riad rooms upstairs have serious sewerage drainage issues with the smell to accompany this, it was extremely loud with the flat screen television watched by the owner on in the central courtyard often, and to end it a light fingered staff member who took a liking to my clothes all in all Marrakech is EXCITING and BUZZING but this riad should be avoided:

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2008

We booked this hotel before reading the reviews and were a little worried about what to expect after we had read what some people had written. On arrival at Les Oliviers, we too were moved to the annex around the corner (which is actually a seperate Riad called Riad Chennaoui). The service on arrival was immediate and excellent. There were three principal members of staff who made our stay incredible. Breakfast was delicious, meals were great and the rooms were very clean and beautiful. Staff went out of their way to not only make us feel comfortable but to make us feel very special and we were very sad to leave. I believe that there are probably many riads that are far more opulent and beautiful but I doubt that the staff are as genuinely lovely as these. It was also in a great location not far from all of the main attractions, plus it is just down the road from an economical but fabulous hammam (hammam Ziani). This place far exceeded our expectations and we hope to return there soon.

Stayed April 2008
