“Paul and Deidre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed at the Idra for 4 nights in the last week of February. We chose the Idra on the back of the other reviews on Tripadvisor. We can only endorse everything other travellers have said. From the moment we got their on the first late on the first evening to be greeted by Karine and Omar with mint tea and shown to our room to the moment we left we were treated with great kindness and helpfulness. We ate dinner on the first night and the meal was superb. The breakfasts are huge and kept us going all day. The Riad is in a great location and is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Without doubt the greatest strength is the standard of care from all the staff we encountered. The Idra is was of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and undoubtedly the highlight of our stay in Marrakesh. We would recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: We slept in the Ahlam which gave an ideal riad experience.

Riad Idra has been the best choice for location (10 minutes from the main square Fna, 20 minutes from Majorelle gardens,...); the rooms are very clean and comfortable,the riad always fresh and very noiseless.
All the streets around are very safe and people are always happy to talk and to help with a smile.
The staff was very precious for suggestions on visits and trips.
Me and my friends have been positively impressed by breakfasts and the courtesy of the staff has always been together with us while drinking tea, surrounded by the scent of roses and oranges and by the gush of water fountains.

we just came back from a beautiful 5 days trip to Marrakech. The riad is really well positioned, elegant but cosy, peaceful but at the same time at the center of the medina. not even 10 minutes walk to Fna! Karin - the manager - is really helpful and all the staff is ready to please you!. Wanderfull breakfast, changes every morning; we even had dinner there and it was superb! Pick-up service and excursions are very well planned directly from them if you need them. There is an Hamman and a Spa as well. thanks to Karin/Omar/Hicham/Mussan for the relaxing stay

We can absolutely recommend a stay here - it is the personal service on top of the beautiful facilities which make this place so special. We stayed 4 nights with our 14-month old son and we really felt taken care of the whole time.

Our room (the Aliya) was wonderful and spacious to suit our needs with a walking infant. The whole Riad is very modern and beautifully decorated, including the dining room, the courtyard and the rooftop terrace - where breakfast in the sun was a wonderful treat.

The food is absolutely outstanding - we arranged to dine every night and were treated to an amazing 4-course meal. Breakfasts are equally outstanding. We also had the hammam bathing experience followed by a massage - it was wonderful and a must do.

The Riad is close to the souks and Jamaâ el Fna Square so it is a great location, yet it is a hidden oasis, away from the tourist and local hustle and bustle outside. We recommend taking up the offer of the Riad's airport transfer service. It is a short walk from the vehicle drop off point to the Riad and staff were there to meet us and take our bags for us.

All staff were excellent, especially the French host Karine, whose personalised service ensured our stay was fabulous. We also appreciated and enjoyed the loving attention our son received from Omar and Musa. It felt like a luxurious home away from home for us. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We booked the Aliya suite to give us more room with our walking 14-month old son - it was spacious...

Beautiful Riad, right in the Medina. Expertly run by Karine and her team - very welcoming and friendly personal service - nothing is too much trouble. The whole Riad is immaculately kept - looks like it was decorated yesterday. Food quality is superb - we chose to eat 3 out of 4 evenings in the Riad. The fish meals were particularly delicious. Riad Idra is an oasis of calm, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the town, amazingly tranquil and quiet. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Its all comfortable and quiet throughout.

Having stayed in hundreds of hotels throughout the world for both business and pleasure, I can honestly say that the Riad Idra must rate amongst the best particularly in terms of the polite and ever attentive nature of Karine and her team. The breakfasts and dinners were equally impressive and would put many larger hotels to shame. I would be happy to recommend this Riad to anyone seeking a taste of luxury whilst staying in the incredible experience that is Marrakech.

We were so well taken care of that we didn't want to leave. The property was beautiful. The service was impeccable. Karine arranged airport transfer and even arranged for someone to walk us up to the door which is quite tucked away. They met us with warm towels, tea and cookies. They put together a lunch because we were starving after a long day travel. After a little R&R, Karine met with us to discuss our excursions. This is the first time a control freak like me let someone else arrange everything. We mapped out dinners, lunches, camel ride, guided tour of the Medina. She made all the right suggestions and arranged it all. And when we weren't exploring, we were so comfortable in our Riad. We enjoyed the roof top for breakfasts and a nap in the sun. We watched a movie in the fireplace room. We had a hammam and massage in the spa. Our suite was very comfortable and cleaned every time we left it. The stay was just fabulous. I can not say enough.

Room Tip: We had the three person suite because our 13 year old son was with us.
