Great location - only few mins away from jemma. Next to that, this is a really wonderful riad - beautiful rooms, beautiful terrace, and especially nice and spacious space to hang out around riad (to read, have a mint tea), with small swimming pool and wonderful decorations. Definitelly recommended to stay here if you are in Marrakesh!

Room Tip: rooms on upper floors might be a bit nicer, for the view on the pool

After scouring the internet for days, I kept coming back to this gem and wow! We first visited Riad Anya in October 2012 and were spoiled by Jamilla and her staff.We were greeted with mint tea and Moroccan treats served in the tranquil courtyard. My friend and I enjoyed a refreshing hammam and massage by Lubna which we would strongly recommend. If you've never tried a hammam this is the place. But the riad is espeically meaningful to us because we got engaged here that night. We loved it so much we returned here for our honeymoon in February. We stayed in the Anya room and loved it! The bathroom is divine - the large shower and toilet are separated by a long counter which offers great privacy and is handy when two people are trying to get ready in the morning. Khalid gave us a warm welcome and made sure we didn't need anything. The breakfast was delicious - the fresh orange juice alone is worth it but they make a mean Moroccan orange cake. Yum! The riad is an easy 5 minute walk to the medina. The only cautionary note is that the riad is down an alley which may not be safe for women alone at night (wasn't a problem during the day though). I strongly recommend this riad and hope to visit again in June.

Room Tip: The Mamounia and Anya rooms are excellent. Mamounia is the terrace room and offers priacy and tranqu...

it was a really great surprise. I chose this riad based on reviews, and I was actually really satisfied.
Great location, great hosts and a wonderful Moroccan breakfast.
Unfortunately it was raining so the internal court was still covered, but the Riad is really awesome.
Strongly recommended.

We stayed for 5 nights. We were very happy with the Riad the room we took was on the roof lovely and secluded the only issue if it bothers you is the 5am call to prayer from the local mosque. Inside the Riad you can barely hear it on the roof it's like having a megaphone next to your head. It's 20 mins every morning if that bothers you get a room inside the building. We managed to deal with it ok and saw it as part of the moroccoan experience.

The Riad was very clean and well kept and beautifully decorated the staff were so friendly they made the stay. Khalil the night manager was really helpful with some local tips and great chats over mint tea.

Breakfast is fresh, hot and great coffee. Only gripe would be its a bit repetitive as its baguette and jam every day as the main part and a small cooked bread pancake or pastry with it. More fruit would have been great.

If you want a friendly place just 8 mins to the square with clean spacious rooms and a huge roof terrace take this place it's excellent my small gripes are just that very small things.

A gorgeous ryad with fabulous outdoor space. I'm glad I booked an airport shuttle as I realized I would never find the ryad on my own the first time. The ryad was located in a maze of small streets, about 10 minutes walk from the Djemaa El-Fna square.

The first thing I noticed was how beautiful it was. The room was not super big, but it was clean and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. And we kind of had our own private courtyard. I did discover some ants in a box of Morrocan sweets we bought 2 days ago, but since it was a ground floor room it could happen of course.

Every time we came back to the ryad, we were offered mint tea. Perfect to wind down after the city buzz. We didn't try dinner there, but breakfast was lovely especially the pancakes!

The staff definitely were eager to go the extra mile for any of our requests. They were the ones who made the stay so pleasurable. Especially Khalil, the night porter. Always ready to join us with some mint tea and to share Moroccan traditions and tales. Very friendly and eager to help.

Definitely recommended!

We had the pleasure of staying at Riad Anya in October 2012. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to ensure a wonderful visit. We were greeted with mint tea and delicous homemade treats. The riad was beautiful - elegant, tranquil and safe. The bedrooms were just beautiful and the bathrooms were spacious and very clean (they have the most amazing smelling soap from Les Sens Marrakesh). My friend and I went spent the afternoon lying in the sun on the riad terrace before enjoying a fabulous hammam and massage by Lubna - we HIGHLY recommend this experience with this lady. Afterwards, we wandered out to the nearby restaurants and medina. My Moroccan friend and his mother joined us later that evening and he and I became engaged at the riad! The setting was like something out of a movie. You could smell the jasmine and see the beautiful night sky from the private alcove (decorated with pillows and lamps); a small pool made it all perfect. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Jamila and her staff could not have been more helpful or discrete. We very much enjoyed our stay at the riad and I hope that my fiance and I will celebrate our wedding reception there!
