“A perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

This was our first visit to Marrakech and we're so glad we chose Riad Elizabeth, which is a beautifully-decorated stylish haven of Englishness amid the riotous blast of noise - and no doubt heat if you go in the summer - that is Marrakech. It was great to have the knowledgeable John to advise us and he was so hospitable and kind. (Sadly, Elizabeth was away at the time so we did not meet her, but both she and John are superb communicators by e-mail). Nothing was too much trouble (booking restaurants, taxis etc), and everything went like clockwork. The Riad is wonderfully situated in the Medina, near the Souks and the main square, and we were guided to nearby places as a matter of course. John arranged for us to be collected and returned to the airport, which is extremely advisable given the maze of little streets that would confound a newcomer. We also had a day in the mountains, arranged by John, and that was great too. All the drivers and staff involved were informative, courteous and reliable. Only one night did we eat in the Riad, and it was delicious - the best meal we had in Marrakech. Five stars all round!

This hotel was a perfect example of how it's suppose to be.
We felt at home, everyone was so kind, it was an amazing experience. From the beginning, the welcoming, until the very last minute.

I strongly recommend to take a cooking lesson, you can go to the market, and prepare the meal for the day.

This was the second time that I visited Riad Elizabeth. On this occasion it was just my girlfriend and I. We had the most wonderful time. Not only was the room lovely (I booked the second cheapest room) but as with last time the staff were superb. Nothing was ever too much trouble no matter what the time or the request. Before we went I bombarded John and Elizabeth with questions about christmas in Morocco, currency, weather etc and was always met with a courteous and prompt response. While we were there Samira was attentive without being intrusive, met with us every morning to see how the previous day had gone and gave us advice when needed.
I am already planning a third visit to this wonderful place!!

Thought I owed this place a long overdue review. It's lovely. We were 3 girls and stayed in the smallest room (I think) but it was still lovely. Roof is great. Takes around 10-15 mins to walk to the main square, it's not an easy route but you learn quick enough. Recommend you eat at the riad at least once. Breakfast also nice. Only gripe was the in accessibility for cars, it meant we couldn't get our own cabs as we couldn't explain where we needed to get to. Of course the great staff will order them for you but it's more expensive. It's a very good looking place also. They booked a spa treatment for us at the bains de Marrakech which I'd also thoroughly recommend.

Even before we arrived, Elizabeth has already provided excellent service through emails. She was friendly and helpful, and helped with every detail. We had booked this Riad almost 7 weeks before our arrival, and Elizabeth had, besides helping with the room reservation, also recommended restaurants and spas for us. She had also helped us to make reservations at all the restaurants we wanted.

Upon our arrival via train from Casa, the Riad pickup was there, and our transfer was without a hitch. after 25hours, the last thing we needed was to fuss about getting to the Riad in the maze like Medina. Thankfully, we had the pickup arranged.

During the stay, Semira was as helpful and courteous as can be. This made our Honeymoon even better. she was always available and provided all sorts of assistance and even organised a trip to Ourika Valley for us. That side trip was actually the highlight of our Honeymoon!
Staff was always cheery and helpful, and that added to the charm of Riad Elizabeth.

Location wise, it was just 5-10mins walk to the Souk, and 15mins to the Square... you couldn't ask for a better location, its near the major sights, yet far away enough from the noise.

Great Find!

We stayed here in January 2013 and returned a year later. For us this is in a perfect location in the Medina, near the souks and try the Terrasse La Medersa around the corner for a light lunch. We stayed in Olivia room which was clean and the bed remains the most comfortable we've slept in on holiday. The other rooms look lovely too. The staff are all helpful and Samira couldn't do enough to help us make the most of our stay. Elizabeth arranged our transfer from a hotel on the outskirts of Essaouira, the driver found it and was there on time.
We'll definitely be back!
