“Lovely Riad, fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Riad Diana is a perfect safe haven from the frenetic activity of the Medina and Souks. Ideally situated to walk to all the "must see" places yet set back from the street in a quiet location. The staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them. On our first night they took us and picked us up from a local restaurant that they recommended as we were too late to eat there. The food I the Riad itself is very tasty and good value for money.
The rooftop terrace is a fantastic place to chill out in the sun or relax after a day out exploring. The hammam and massage are both excellent and very reasonably priced.
We stayed in a suite as there were 4 of us and there was plenty of space with one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in!
All in all I would highly recommend this Riad if you are thinking about a visit to Marrakech.

Riad Diana is is located within walking distance from the main square. The suks are at your doorstep but can easily be avoided if you wish.
The Riad is beautifully decorated and the staff are very friendly and attentive. No request is ever too much. If you decide to have dinner at the riad (very reasonably priced) you will be blown away by authentic home made Moroccan food. You can even discuss with the cook in the morning what your preferences are for your meal! Needless to say that the table is set beautifully!
The room I stayed was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Staff will clean& tidy your room in the morning.
The plunge pool looked beautiful but unfortunately being January a little too cold to experience it. The roof terrace is peaceful and set up with sun loungers and comfy seating to just relax with a shisha and sunbathe if you wish.
The Riad organised our transport to and from the airport and it was the best service. Well worth it.
We also booked the hamam and a full body massage which were both excellent.
This riad can be a perfect setting for a romantic stay or holiday with friends.
I will definitely want to go back and recommend it to anyone. Nothing to envy to a top 5 star hotel.
Thank you Riad Diana for making us feel special and for the lovely stay!

Riad Diana is the perfect base from which to explore Marrakech as it is a 5 minute walk to the Jemaa al Fna square, yet far enough away to escape the chaos of the Medina. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon in the sun. The Riad is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with great service. The staff really can't do enough for you! Breakfast and evening meals were delicious. As well as enjoying the food from Riad Diana (typically Moroccan), I'd also recommend Kozybar and Le Tanjia for reasonably priced but tasty food.

Travelled as four 20 something females to Marrakech. Found the Medina to be a bit overwhelming, however, this Riad was perfect to escape and relax from the chaos outside. The staff could not have been more helpful and truly made our trip as special as possible whilst we were with them, Cannot recommend it highly enough!

Riad Diana is perfectly located, tucked off the busy Jemaa el-Fnaa marketplace on a quiet street in the souk. The staff is very attentive, the rooms beautifully appointed and the breakfasts were delicious, with a little something new each morning. The rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to experience the spectacular Marrakech sunset.

Excellent stay! Riad Diana is a typical and very well located riad in the hearth of old town, 5 minutes walking from the square Jemaa el Fnaa. Charming rooms, delicious breakfast and excellent customer service by Mr. Boyemoue who organize and negotiate for us the transfer from the hotel to the rail station and who gives us a perfect service all the time.

We spent 10 days in the heart of Marrakech in this charming Riad Diana owned by a german, managed by a local morrocan - a real nice guy who took care of our vacation in any cases e.g. reservation for golf teetime, restaurants, transfers, booking day trips to the atlas and essaouria, serving daily beers etc.

The riad itself is a cosy, very clean and a decent place to stay. Even if it is in the heart of the medina it is a hidden small guest house that is still very quite with a conveniant rooftop terrace.

Thanks to the manager and all his colleagues for the comfortable stay we had with you.

All the best, Frank & Vanessa
