“Just superb, Such wonderful memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2009

Wow, what can I say.... We had an amazing time in Marrakech mainly due to booking the Riad Assakina, what a find. Michele the owner and her small committed team made us feel relaxed and so at home. They were all so friendly and nothing was to much trouble. The riad is well located for all the major attractions and Michele will provide you with detailed maps of any area that you wish to explore she even took us to the surrounding area on our first day, where would you get attention like that ? Michele or one of her team will arrange guides, taxis and even book restaurants should you need them, they are there on your return from the heat and buzz of the day with mint tea and fresh cakes, and happy to listen to your tales and adventures ! The Riad itself is absolutely stunning, beautifully decorated throughout, Pure luxury.The attention to detail included fresh flowers in our room, fresh fruit each day and a little tray of chocolates on our turn down beds. The breakfast is excellent just what you need to set you up for the day ahead, and do do try to eat at the riad at least one evening, your be pleased you did, the meal was just divine. I would never recommend anywhere other than the Riad Assakina and cant wait return. Thank you Michele and Team Assakina

The Assakina is an oasis of stylish calm in the busy Medina area. Ideally placed for the main square, souks and a range of great restaurants. The decor is really special - Morrocan and other antiques used in really interesting ways. We would recommend the Khalid suite - stunning. Excellent breakfasts in the courtyard and a lovely roof terrace for a beer or glass of wine watching the sun go down over the Medina. Best bit however, is the staff who are all so friendly and helpful. Michelle, the owner, goes out of her way to make sure you get the best out of the city, offering invaluable tips on prices, restaurants and how to negociate the maze of streets in the Medina. A wonderful stay - we can't wait to return.

What a stunning place to fall in the middle of madness! We were just thrilled to bits with our choice of this riad whilst we holidayed in Marrakech. Riad Assakina exceeded our expectations of riad lifestyle. Highlights included a genuine friendly welcome and a wealth of knowledge, friendly staff who are always smiling, superb food which was always fresh and plentiful, crazy entertaining resident Zak (the cat), and especially gorgeous surroundings! All these amounted to an unforgettable sojourn. We could not speak more highly of our stay at Riad Assakina and would be back in a heartbeat. These memories will be with us forever.

Riad Assakina is an excellant example of a recently restored riad combining excellant facilities with a traditional Morrocan style.
The bedrooms are very comfortable with a little more space than normally associated with this type of accomodation.
The public areas have been tastefully furnished and provide both a cool shaded environment or great sunbathing facilities. Both are excellant for sharing a bottle of house wine with friends after a busy day in the souhks.
Whilst Michele, the owner/manager is English she seems to have a depth of knowledge about Morrakech to rival the locals. She will happily share isights into shopping, eating and sight seeing that enhance the marrakech experience.
Michele's team at the Riad seem to really understand what customer service is all about and always with a smile.
Don't be put off by the approach when arriving from the airport!

The Riad is excellently located in the old Jewish Quarter very close to the palaces and a few minutes walk from the main square. We had a wonderful warm welcome from Michelle and from then on nothing was too much trouble. The Assakina is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Michelle and all her staff were so helpful with booking restaurants and taxis and with much local advice. We felt as though we were staying with old friends. Afternoon tea on the rooftop terrace is very relaxing after sightseeing and the food is excellent. We would suggest that you do not stay anywhere else in Marrakech!

Marrakech was our last stop during a 10 days trip in Morocco. We first visited Tangiers, Fes and Casablanca. We liked Marrakech best, even with the heat. Casablanca was totally a waste of time, apart from the big mosque. Riad Assakina is a charming and cozy hotel. It’s well located and the service is very good, just as we read in all the reviews. I wouldn’t say it’s the best hotel I’ve stayed in but it’s certainly a good value.
