“Great value. Great location ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Stayed here following a friends recommendation ,we were not disappointed

Stayed in the room on the roof terrace that was in my opinion the best,basically had the full use of the balcony and "lounge"to ourselves .

Riad in a great location ,staff are really friendly and could not be more pleasant or helpful.

We had the massage treatment which was good value ,and also the meal which was also good

We would definitely use again

We had booked Riad Carina but were told on arrival there was a problem with the shower and were being relocated to nearby Riad Diana. Lovely welcome, with mint tea. Staff were very friendly and helpful and provided us with a map and advice about places to visit on arrival. Our room was beautifully decorated in a traditional style, huge bed and lovely shower. All necessities including hair dryer and as we had brought our own kettle, even tea and sugar was provided! Breakfast was average, bread, jam, cakes, tea coffee and juice. Enough to help start your day. Location was excellent, 5 mins from the square and walking distance of many sights and souks and restaurants. Arranged excursion to Atlas Mountains for the day through the hotel, price was much cheaper than outside and we had an excellent driver and guide. Our only gripe was that the Riad did not serve any evening drinks at all so no option to sit in courtyard or roof terrace with a drink unless you had your own. Overall a fantastic and memorable 4 day break! Would definitely recommend for peace and tranquility.

Room Tip: We had the only ground floor room which had a huge bed and was beautifully decorated. Bonus was that...

We stayed at Riad Diana for 2 nights at the start of a 10 night trip to Morocco. Riad Diana was our favourite of all the places we stayed. It is a 5-10 minute walk from Djamma El Fna which we felt was a good distance.

The room was spacious and beautifully designed and there is a good chill out area on the roof away from busy Marrakech.

Breakfast was as we had everywhere in Morocco.

Staff were helpful and friendly - one thing in particular which was good was they stored our bags for one night when we went to Essouira and moved them to the Riad we stayed at on our return.

Recently stayed here for 5 nights. We arranged for their taxi service to collect us from the airport and this was waiting for us when we landed. We were welcomed at the riad with mint tea and biscuits which was lovely and then shown to our room on the ground floor. It was the only bedroom on the ground floor and right next to the dining area where breakfast was served, this was the only negative about the riad as you could hear everything outside so if we weren't first up in the morning we could hear other people outside the room having breakfast.

That was the only negative though. We had arranged to have dinner at the riad on the first night and this was delicious with a selection of 4 different starters, a beautiful chicken tagine followed by a lovely dessert.

Everyone at the riad was so polite and helpful and would help with anything we required whether that was just general questions, directions or anything.

We also used their hammam and massage which was a great experience and well worth the money they charge. This is all on site so saves you having to go elsewhere for a hammam, you may pay a bit more but in my view it's worth it. They also arranged a trip to the Ourika valley with a private taxi and this was a lovely day out which we would recommend if you have the time for a trip.

The roof terrace is available for everyone to use with a seated area and sunbeds.

Overall the riad is so peaceful against the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and the staff are excellent. I would certainly recommend this riad to anyone.

Everything you could want. Four mins. from main square. Mr Friday (owner) good English looked after us very well and was attentive and helpful throughout our visit. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms large comfortable, fabulous traditional spotless. Confident in giving this a 5*
Tips; Book the riad taxi service (20e single)N.B. all tips are paid for in this.
Change currency in town (Gatwick 9d to £ Marrakech 13!)
Change d to £ in town (airport airside doesn't take d)
Atlas trip good but take good grip trainers.
4 nights is right time
I used a compass phone to help navigate the serpentine Hampton Court Maze of alleys
Be street aware or you'll get a "guide" who takes you to a "carpet shop"
Huge fun and safe. Keith (world nomad 64)

Riad Diana is a very nice riad with spacious rooms, tasteful décor, beautiful lighting and relaxing, sunny rooftop terrace. The taxi drivers used by this riad were very friendly. Staff are incredibly friendly, very helpful and welcoming, always made sure you were taken care of. The Riad has a very good location: easy to find, just a minute walk from a shopping street and just a few minutes walk to the djemaa el fna square. It´s close to the hustle but in the Riad you don't hear anything from outside. Riad Diana is a beautiful calm oasis, in the middle of the Medina very close to all the attractions and zouks. We felt very safe at the riad. The riad itself was beautiful and very clean. We'd definitely recommend staying there.

First time in Marrakech

The riad arranged a taxi €20 which was a good thing as it was late when we arrived. You can't park close to the riad and it's a bit tricky to find for the first time. Ideally have some 10 or 20 MAD to tip the porter if you use one. With experience you could do it off your own back if cost is an issue.

All the staff were obliging. Breakfast was as described by others. They upgraded our room as we had plumbing issues with our original one.

All the photo are an accurate representation. I would stay there again.

Watch out for mopeds and cycles coming at you from every direction. If you are fed up with health and safety Marrakech is the place to go!!!!
