“A welcome home in the Marrakech medina.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Jo and I stayed three nights at the Riad Marana nestled deep in the medina of Marrakech. The location was perfect. We were just a short walk from all of the shopping, sights and energy of the medina.

Our room was clean and had a terriffic shower. We had a first floor room, but it was always quiet during our stay. The staff was helpful and the breakfast which was included was good. The riad provided the needed rest from our very full days in Marrakech.

Do not hesitate to chose this unique hotel in the heart of old Marrakech. You will be amazed.

We stayed in many riads all around Morocco, and the staff at raid marana were incredibly hospitable. The service was stellar, the rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious, and the mint tea was the best we have had.

We wanted to send a package from the post office, but it was closed due to a holiday. Nabila, the manager of the raid, went above and beyond to help us find other mailing options, and even sent the package for us in the end.

Riad Marana is literally just around the corner from the Marrakech markets and the vast souk. Despite its proximity to both it is quiet and blissfully clean. The rooms are modern with a distinctly Moroccan feel. The beds are the most comfortable I had the pleasure to sleep in in my three weeks there.
We enjoyed wonderful hospitality while we were there. Nabaouia was able to help us with recommendations for the next leg of our trip. Ellen was able to cure my bellyache with a herbal concoction. The cook was always obliging and made the most wonderful breakfasts. High praise but well deserved. If we ever return to Marrakech we will stay again. Thankyou!

Room Tip: Close to markets/ souk. Ideal for couples. Clean.

We stayed at Riad Marana with our 2 children. It is a small Riad less than a 5 minute walk to the Djemaa el-Fna square and the souks- a perfect position. Easy to find and very quiet. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautifully decorated. We all enjoyed the breakfasts. Delishious home made yoghurt. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 nights after recommendation from out guide, Ali Ossou. Small riad in the centre of Marrakech just off the Jamalfna, but in a quiet lane. Very friendly and helpful. Very clean accommodation and great breakfast. Rooms are not massive but good enough. There is a small rooftop for lounging. Paid 70euros per night for 2 triple rooms including breakfast. Given free access to internet which was a life-saver as we were caught up in the volcano airlines fiasco. Only downside is that cars do not come right up to the riad but stop at Cafe Argana on the Jamalfna, which is a 5-minute walk away. However, owners happy to arrange a had with getting your suitcases upto the riad. The manager Nabaouia speaks English well, but most of the other staff are French-speaking. Highly recommended.
