“Excellent! Thank you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed at this lovely Riad 4 days and we can really say that we've been spoiled. Starting with breakfast and ending with a cup of mint tee in the evening. First of all i want to say/correct something that a past reviewer writed: indeed the breakfast is sort of repetitive but you get so much that you can alternate every day. If you'r not 180Kg you can eat everything you have on the table. So that aside i would like Karine and her Staff ( Omar, Redouane, Sallah and the ladies) for the really great time spent in Marrakech.
Facts: 1) Breakfast is enough and variated and we recommand the sunroof. 2) Your room is cleaned 3-4 times a day-so it is really clean 3) The staff is really really nice and please listen to Karine if you need advice regarding your stay 4) If you need something and i mean anything just ask.
Hmm let's say somenthing that need improvement: The airconditioning system was above our bed and in the night it was a little bit chilli and loud.
But anyway...we've had a really really great time thanks to the team at the Riad and thanks to the lovely town of Marrakech.

We love this place the moment we walked into the courtyard! The entire riad is very tastefully, elegantly designed, from the courtyard, to the terrace, the rooms....... It's so peaceful and comfortable to hang around in any of the corners.
Service of this riad is another charm. Karine and the team is very approachable, professional and helpful.Karine provided very good recommendations on the choice of restaurants, sites to visit....... She also helped us to get a local guide (thanks for her recommendation to go for a half day tour and explore the rest by ourselves) who showed us around the medina.
Normally, I will go for different hotels when I travel so that I can have different experiences. But when I return to Marrakesh next time, I will defintely go to Riad Idra again!

Dear Ilam,

We would like to thank you for having taken the time to write a review about your experience in our Riad.
We are glad you have appreciated the charm of a stay in a Riad which is very different than staying in a real hotel.
According the tour guide, I usually recommend a half day only because it can be so exciting to get your own experience exploring the medina by yourself and getting lost in the souks. I’m happy you liked my recommendation !
We look forward to your next stay with us.

Kind regards,

Karine and Idra’s team

My boyfriend and I have recently returned from Morocco where we were lucky enough to stay at Riad Idra. The riad is beautiful, the staff were fantastic, and the facilities were great. Karine was very helpful at helping us choose what to do during our stay and where to eat in the evenings and all of her suggestions were phenomenal.

We spent 5 nights in total at riad Idra and by the end of the trip it felt like home. We felt like we knew all of the staff and that they gave us a unique, personal experience. If you go, Omar's mint tea is delicious (the best in Morocco) and breakfast every morning on the terrace was exceptional.

We are already looking forward to planning another trip next year!

Riad Idra really is an oasis in the heart of the action, it's so quiet once inside you would never think you are a stones throw from the souks. Karine and her team are amazing and helpful at all times, suggesting places to visit, booking trips and general guidance on how to get there which is invaluable in Marrakech! The food is amazing, far too much for me to eat but I did try. The rooms are spotless and the court yard and roof terrace and perfect for relaxing after a day sight seeing.
This is possibly the best place I have ever stayed in can't recommend highly enough.

Riad Idra has seven lovely appointed rooms, gracious hospitality, delightful staff, delicious meals taken on the rooftop terrace. General Manager Karine is awesome, professional, yes, can do and raised the bar for the most perfect, gem of a riad!!
Everything runs so smoothly with local charm. We felt that we were staying in someone's special home and appreciated the memorable experience on all levels.

A Riad with the standards and service levels of any 5 star hotel. Karine and her team run a service that is low key but always at hand to look after your every need. The quality of finish to the fixtures and fittings are superb. The breakfast is delicious, plentiful and healthy. You are in the centre of everything but it's so peaceful you would never know it. As soon as the flights become available I will be booking for 2014. PS You must try the Hamman and massage

This has to be the best Riad in the Marrakech Medina. It is light, spacious, relaxing and peaceful with beautiful flowers and water features. Having been met at the airport the driver telephoned ahead for us to be collected by a member of staff on foot from the nearest vehicle drop off point. On arrival we were greeted with hot flannels, mint tea, a helpful chat and a map, then invited to say when it would suit us best for our pre-ordered dinner to be served on the roof terrace or in the dining room.

The level of service throughout our stay was impeccable, as were the high quality furnishings and decor in the bedrooms/suites and communal areas, the facilities and the catering. Having initially booked for 3 nights we returned from the coast for a 4th. I cannot recommend highly enough the Riad, its location and the cheerful and professional staff who did their very best to ensure our stay in Marrakech was a wonderful experience.
