“Marrakech Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Great traditional Riad. Close to Jamaa el-Fnaa and in a quiet side street just away from the buzz of the city. Staff couldn't do enough for us and spoke very good English. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Would recommend!

Although we only stayed for one night the staff at the Riad were outstanding. They not only went above any expectation we could have possibly had but made our visit to Morocco start off right. We arrived somewhat late in the evening but were still greeted by the owner and our room was top quality- air conditioning, complimentary bottled water, map of the area with highlighted information, all amazing especially as I hadn't properly had time to research places to go prior to our visit due to exam-stress. Our stay was certainly stress removing which made it all the better

Room Tip: The terrace room is wonderful for an added feeling of remoteness and makes the evening time enjoyabl...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The rooftop terrace is beautiful both for some day time sun and for enjoying a drink once the sun sets in the evening. We didn't have dinner here but we saw a table set out and it looked as though they had gone to a lot of effort- probably ideal if you don't fancy heading out one evening and I have no doubt that that the food would be excellent. Breakfast was perfect- fruit, pastries, bread, jams and freshly squeezed orange juice, together with genuinely great coffee.

Location-wise this is a very well situated riad. You are only a five minute walk from the main square but can still enjoy some good souk shopping virtually on the doorstep. That being said, the riad is set well back enough from the street so that there is very little noise. As two women in our 20s, we felt very safe wandering about the area at night, although partly because it is quite busy, even later on. The riad will arrange tours and cooking classes, and they have an on site hammam which is a fun (and reasonably priced) experience.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We were served mint tea on arrival and provided with a map with the assurance that we could ask questions about the local area. Check-out time was a very reasonable 12pm and they were happy for us to leave our luggage and to come and go as we pleased for the remainder of the day before our flight back. Basically, it is clear that the owners take a great deal of pride in trying to ensure that guests have an enjoyable visit and the place deserves to do extremely well. Highly recommended.

We had three nights at Riad Diana and arranged to be collected at Airport. Nothing was too much trouble from start to finish. All the staff were really friendly and obliging but not intrusive. Breakfast was continental and enjoyable. We also had a meal on the roof one evening. Convenient location, beautiful Decore within the Riad I would recommend to all with confidence. Boujemma, Bada, Rita and all staff were excellent.

Room Tip: We took larger room with separate lounge but all rooms looked great.

i felt like im home , the three angels where really helpful, more than what i wish, i lost my luggage in airport and had only one pant ! , she washed it to me after midnight and brought it before 2 am.
i felt embarrassed by the warm service they provided.
morrocon tea, fresh juices, and local homemade sweets. beside the breakfast
thank you all,
abu jumaah , bader, and the three angels.
salem, kuwait.
one thing to say. you need to sleep around 10 pm for you to have quite sleep.
i liked being awaken by the birds sounds and tweets 6 am, all riads are not soundproof but i liked that way and used to it 3rd night :)

Room Tip: just try to sleep before 11 and wake before 9 :)

We arrived tired & a bit stressed from our train trip to this beautiful little oasis only minutes from the madness of the Medina. Our room was ready with rose petals delicately scattered across the bed & bathroom. How beautiful! We were warmly welcomed with mint tea & asked if there was anything we needed. As it was our first night in Marrakech we asked if we could eat at the riad that night. What an amazing experience. A rooftop dining setting at sunset with the best meal we ate anywhere in Morocco. Exquisite! The service & friendliness of the staff is unequalled, & we have travelled extensively, & the facilities were exceptionally clean & very roomy & comfortable. I would gladly stay here again & would give it the highest recommendation. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

I stayed at this Riad with 3 girlfriends. The staff were all friendly and always went that extra mile to make us feel at home and welcome at all times. Mohammed is a very hard working man and tried his hardest to please us, up and down the stairs many times serving the infamous mint tea and lovely breakfast to us on the beautiful roof terrace. The meat tagine was the most succulent lamb I have ever tasted, this was served to us on our arrival, my compliments to the cook, she was very attentive and always willing to please. Overall a very clean, traditional, family feel riad with lovely staff.
