“Great location, and even better staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

While others may have had difficulties finding the riad, we had booked ahead to arrange a transfer directly from the airport. This meant we were lead straight to the front door, and then immediately given maps and an orientation of Marrakesh, which was a huge help - it's actually very easy to get to this riad.

Located within 10 minutes walk north of the main Jamaa El Fna square, and a further 5 minutes further north into the maze-like Souks, this is a well located Riad for exploring the medina (old town) area. It is also very close to the Jewish spice market area, which we found to be better priced than the more tourist-targeted Souks, and within 5 minutes walk of the Bahia Palace, Dar Si Siad and Tiskiwin museum/attractions.

Despite being deep in the Medina area, it was very calm and quiet behind the walls of the riad. Light sleepers shouldn't worry about the noise and hustle & bustle of the area disrupting their sleep - or even their late-morning lie-ins!


We had Bab Ighli suite, which was very large and had a king bed with space for a third person on another bed in the "lounge" area of the suite. The decor is very tasteful, and the rooms are cleaned/freshened up every day, regardless of when you eventually leave!

We had a peek into several of the other rooms, and they all looked well appointed and very comfortable.

There is an indoor heated pool, and jaccuzzi on the roof top, though we didn't use either of these facilities.

The price is very reasonable and the team there do everything to help make sure the stay is special. The team at the Riad, and especially Simo, are fantasic.

They know the area very well, proving to be great guides and they provided many recommendations for places to visit, eat, and get better bargains. The team at the riad would also help us when we needed a scooter ride to the ATM/pharmacy/late night food - talk about going above and beyond!

When we return to Marrakech, I have no doubt we will stay at Riad Dar El Grably again.

Room Tip: Bab Ighli was a spacious room, though WiFi signal was a bit weaker up on the second floor. You will...

This place is run by a very pleasant French lady. Her staff are very pleasant. The decor is all very tasteful, and the location is superb - on a quiet alleyway but only 5 mins walk from the main square. I wish I had stayed longer!

Room Tip: There's one room on the ground floor right next to the dining area. Don't choose that one if...

The riad is located on a quiet street south of the main square. The first time, finding the riad is difficult, welcome to Marrakech. All riads are difficult to find the first time.

I liked the location of the riad essentially in between the main souks and square to the north and the palaces, mellah and tombs to the south.

The riad is very attractive, with mixed contemporary European/Moroccan design theme. The staff was incredibly helpful, with good recommendations as well as one of the most helpful orientation presentations I have seen in Marrakech. The map we were given was so helpful as well as the personal route recommendations.

Breakfast on the roof top terrace was fantastic. The Jacuzzi on the roof was also a pleasant treat considering the winter visit.

We had a wonderful time in this Riad, excellent location, top quality service, very confortable, people in the raid were very kind, is always a pleasure to arrive to the riad after walking outside at +46 degrees C and go to the swimming pool. And in the evening head to the jacuzzi and just relax by listening the city. We were traveling with my two kids and we have a very good memories from this trip. Highly recommendable to everybody, also I forgot to mentioned the price was also very reasonable.

Room Tip: There is only 7 rooms so do the reservations ahead of time.

Thank you to Francoise and her team for all their help during our last few days in Morrocco. The riad is lovely and definitely a good place to rest after hours on the busy streets of Marrakech. The team was very attentive and responsive.

I would highly recommend staying here, me and 2 girlfriends spent 4 nights at the Riad and it was lovely. Fabulous location and francoise and Simo were very helpful with recommendations and showing around...would highly recommend eating next door at the palace with the belly dancers. Can't say enough good things about this Riad...will definitely be going back
