“Very friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We stayed here in the second week of April and had a great time. It's a wonderful Riad which is located very close to a lot of the major attractions (Jamaa El Fna, Souks, Bahia Palace, Bedi Palace.

Boujemaa (Abu Jumah), Badr, Fatimah and the rest of the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. They were really good with my 4 year old and one and a half year old sons. The décor in the hotel is beautiful and have that authentic feel.

I would really recommend this Riad to anyone who is thinking of visiting Marrakech.

Room Tip: We stayed in the arbor suite which was very spacious!!

Amazingly helpful and friendly staff, really nice, comfortable rooms, and extremely safe and family-like atmosphere.
Great location too as only 10-min walk from main Place Jemaa El Fna. Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Only 4 or 5 rooms available, all are good and quiet to sleep

Stayed at the Riad Diana for 4 nights with my mum. Had amazing and relaxing time!
Great location, the heart of the Medina - 7 min from the main market.
The Riad Diana itself is beautiful, a real oasis of peace, calm and the most accommodating and friendly staff you could imagine. First floor room overlooking central courtyard was beautiful, authentic and spotlessly clean.
Keep up the good work. Highly recommended.

From the moment you step through the door its like an Oasis. Boujemaa and the rest of the staff attend to your every needs, nothing is too much trouble.
It is situated down and alley just by the Souxs, within in moments of being there you feel safe and part of Marrakech,
A must is to eat at the Rhiad at least once.. You will discuss in the morning your requirements as to meat etc. and it will all be purchased fresh from the markets that day and cooked to perfection. Even our fussy eater was treated to a fabulous meal cooked to his specifications.
If you are looking to take a tour, speak to the staff they will arrange a guide (cheaper than all the other quotes we had) who will pick you up (on foot) from the Rhiad

Room Tip: We had a suite which was excellent and the other rooms all looked equally as good

We were fortunate to stay at this charming small riad for 3 nights. Hospitality was top draw.
We spent 10 days touring Morocco and this riad turned out to be our favourite. We had 2 evening meals here and food was superb. I would be happy to recommend this riad . It is not large or opulent but service and food 5 stars, and excellent location

We stayed at Riad Diana for one night. It was a lovely Riad tucked away from Jema el Fnaa. The staff was courteous and helpful. We wanted to purchase some boxes of tea right before we left for the airport and the staff offered to get it for us. It was a lovely gesture. The breakfast was nice and the Riad was clean and inviting. It's a nice choice for anyone visiting Marrakech and wanting to stay near the Jema el Fnaa.

My husband and I have just spent a wonderful few days at the Riad Diana. It is truly a little gem of riad tucked down a very quiet alley, 5 mins walk from the main square Jema el Fnaa, therefore in very easy reach of taxis, restaurants and the souks. We were given a very warm welcome by all the Riad staff and had a very relaxing stay. The rooms and common areas are kept very clean and tidy and the decor is thoughtful with many traditional pieces of furniture having been sourced.

We would absolutely recommend a home cooked dinner, the Chicken tagine made by the lady cook was delicious and not to be bettered at any of the restaurants we subsequently visited. We also enjoyed the all over body massage in the Riad's little spa.

Our room was on the ground floor, opening out onto the courtyard garden and opposite the little kitchen so I would say that this room might not be the most peaceful during a very busy time, however it was clean, comfortable and very charming. If you can speak some French it really helps, the Hotel owner speaks very good English but some of the staff not soo much, but French is the second language for most Morrocans rather than English.

All in all, we feel sure that anyone who stays at the Riad Diana will have a super time!

Room Tip: As mentioned before, the ground floor 'patio' room might be a little noisy during busy perio...
