“Having visited other Riads, should be better rated!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Second time here, didn't get round to writing a review the first time but this great Riad deserves better attention as it really is sublime. Although if it creeps up the list at Tripadvisor it may prove difficult to get a room...

Location is great, in the north of the Medina with a 15 minute walk to either the souks or the main square and a crafty short cut to the new town, so all bases are well covered.

The staff are a real highlight, nothing is too much and the service is very personal and utterly faultless. The cooking at the riad is particularly excellent although it is on request only for anything but breakfast.

The riad it self is very cool, very modern with some wonderful touches and at the contemporary end of the design spectrum with a great roof terrace, tiny plunge pool and a real attention to detail that is carried through into the top notch rooms themselves.

So while this incredible riad languishes in the mid-table of Tripadvisor ratings and deserves to be much, much higher but that just means those of us in the know can enjoy it, fuss-free.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor as could be noisy and the extra for the suite is not really worth it unless y...

A special, quiet place in the Medina, not too far from the souk. Very helpful and welcoming staff, spacious and comfortable rooms on the first floor, very well decorated. WiFi Internet, good breakfast and superb dinner upon request.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are quieter. Rooms on the ground floor are next to the breakfast tables.

I can't really fault Riad De Vinci after a delightful 7 days there with my wife. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were always on hand and always had a ready smile.

It was simply but elegantly finished with polished tadelakt renders, a courtyard with deep plunge pool, a very comfortable communal area and fine old wrought iron galleries, all beautifully lit at night. There's a roof garden with all the usual sunbeds, breakfast area etc to take the blissful sunshine. Room was comfortable, simple with very very good shower and very clean. Breakfast served at whatever time of day you chose to emerge!

I thought it was well located - about 3 minutes walk from the Ben Silame Mosque which is accessable to taxis and only ten minutes walk from the middle of town - will go back again and again

4 single females of a certain age, welcomed warmly, looked after brilliantly and enjoyed a fantastic 5 days. Excellent value, charming and helpful staff, beautifully furnished. Amazing value. Nothing was too much trouble. The kindness of ALL the staff was faultless. The rooftop terrace was bliss and well furnished. The attention to detail - candles on the stairs, Happy Birthday in petals on the bed, change in the breakfast to suit our tastes ... a really terrific find.

Room Tip: Maybe better to ask for a first floor room so as you are not disturbed by other guests on the ground...

Myself and 3 friends stayed here for 2 nights in September. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel that we were literally in our own home and noting was too big or too small. We were swept away with the classy, sophisticated and delicate detail and the amazing roof top terrace. A real hidden gem, fantastic value, close proximity to local attractions including the square which was a 10 minute walk. Cannot wait to return to this fab riad. Thank you for making our trip magical

We stayed here for 5 nights and found the Riad to be a relaxing spot to return to after pounding the pavements of the medina. The proprietor has kept the decor simple and tasteful, utilising local products such as lamps to create an intimate atmosphere.
The pool is small but perfect for cooling off in the afternoon heat. The roof terrace is ideal and comes complete with loungers and a view over the medina. We would come back again definitely!

Wonderful place, very quiet and romantic. Extremely helpful staff who picked us up in the middle of nowhere in the Medina when we got lost. They also escorted us to and from restaurants at night and to places of interest.
Would definately go again and recomend it to everyone. Great roof top terrace with nice breakfast served every morning (or at your prefered time) with fresh juices, pastry, bread, marmelade, cheese and fresh coffee.

Very centrally located, even though it can be a bit hard to find if you haven´t been in the medina of Marrakech before, so make sure to have someone to meet you where the taxi will drop you off.

Highly recomended and at a very reasonable price!
