“Shooting myself in the foot?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

This place is extraordinary. At one point I was at the front desk speaking with another guest, and we both commented on how incredible Riad Idra was, but we hated to write a great review because it would possibly mean that it would be more difficult to stay the next time around - more crowded, more expensive. But this enchanting place, and it's crown jewel Karine, deserve the highest accolades. It's magical, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakesh.

Wow! I'm not sure holiday accommodation can get any better than Riad Idra.
My wife and I spent 4 days in Marrakash on a 'Baby Moon'. We where picked up from the hotel and delivered comfortably and safely to the Riad where we were welcomed by Karine and a lovely cup of Mint Tea. We had a little unexpected treat in store as we had been up-graded to the suite!
Riad Idra is a true oasis. It is clean, well decorated - we have pinched a few ideas for our own home - and extremely comfortable. Its perfectly located in the old town too. Every thing is in walking distance. The service is friendly, professional - second to none. Karine was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat and must see sights.
We had pre-booked a Haman at a spa nearby but decided to cancel it and have one in the Riad instead. If you have never had a Haman before, I thoroughly recommend it! Especially after a busy day in the souks. They have a little massage room too. One stand out point for us was the breakfast. Breakfast was held on the roof terrace which was lovely and calm and a little sun trap. Breakfast started with fresh fruit salad followed by a local dish, which changed every day, followed by home made pastries, breads and jams. Yum. We actually regret not trying dinner here too.
Don't think twice about booking here. It is truly fantastic. You will be very well looked after.

Room Tip: We had the suite which had a jacuzzi bath! Awesome!

An oasis in the middle of the Medina; incredible attention to detail from the moment you arrive. Beautiful property, delicious breakfast, impeccable service. The manager, Karine, made our Marrakech trip exceed our expectations which were pretty high already. I never write reviews but Riad Idra is definitely worth it; don't think twice before booking, you are in the best hands.

Very charming Riad with lovely manageress and staff! Manageress, Karine and her team were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and our room along with the entire Riad was very peaceful, clean and beautifully decorated. The Riad is in an excellent location within the Medina and Karine was excellent at sharing her local knowledge and advising our activities throughout our holiday. Would definitely recommend staying here and will definitely be returning in the near future.

Dear Genevieve,

We would like to thank you for having taken the time to write your opinion about your stay at Riad Idra.
It has been a pleasure for me to share with you my personal recommendation about the city, I usually try to adapt my tips according to the expectation of people (couple, friends, children & family…) and I’m glad you appreciated it.
Hygiene in Moroccan houses is very important and it seems you felt the Moroccan cleanness in our house.
We look forward to your return !
All the best,

This Riad is wonderful - location, service, furnishings, ambiance, food - all top notch. I have been to Marrakesh before but my husband hadn't and he loved this place. Karine runs a very tight ship. We recommend it.

Dear Jane,

Thank you very much for agreeing with the opinion of Jane Sayer about our Riad.
Riad Idra is like a small house, with only 7 rooms so we do all our best to offer a personalized service in an intimate atmosphere.
We're delighted to know you enjoyed your stay in our house and we hope to see you again in Marrakech.

Kind regards,

Karine and the team

Lovely riad in an excellent location in the Medina. Manager gave us a run down on best places to visit, eat and relax and she runs a very efficient and comfortable riad. Great food, friendly staff, nice roof terrace, clean & beautifully decorated rooms. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

This is a very peaceful and beautiful Riad in a perfect location on the edge of the Medina. We have just spent a week staying in Marrekech and the highlight of our stay has been the time spent at the Riad. The team, lead by Karine is what makes this place so special and sets it apart from anywhere else we've stayed. Your every need is attended to in a very non-intrusive manner. Karine is incredibly efficient with lots of helpful advice on what to visit and where to eat. Mention must be made of the excellent food served for breakfast and evening meal, certainly of a very high standard with wonderful flavours - we ate in the Riad 3 evenings during our stay and they were certainly the best meals we had. The bedrooms and suites are furnished in rich colours and all very clean and luxuriously laid out. The spa facilities were great and certainly worth sampling. All in all a wonderful place, so much so that we have already booked to go again. Very highly recommended.
