“Very relaxing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had a wonderful time here! The rooms were lovely and the communal areas very peaceful! One thing to note is the owner is French and not much English is spoken with the staff but they are very friendly , and the pool is only a plunge pool,

Great location away from the hussle and bustle but within walking distance

Excellent moijitos and great massages!

Stayed September 2012, traveled with friends

This was our first experience of staying in a Riad, and I can honestly say this will not be our last, from the moment we stepped through the beautifully carved wooden front door into Riad Flam you can feel the warmth & tranquility, Flam & her wonderful staff are professional & welcoming,The Riad was beautiful to the eye, furniture sumptuous & inviting, rooms furnished to a high standard & was a pleasure to return to at the end of a day walking around the busy Souks. We had our first evening meal at Riad Flam & I can say compliments again to the chef the meal was faultless. The roof trerrace was peacful & picturesque, just what anyone would love after a busy day. Flam, Abdul & Naima we can not thank you enough for making our 1st trip to Morroco complete, we hope to see you all again soon, Health, Happiness & Love from Vina & Mike xx (Ivory Room)

This riad is so beautiful and the staff treat you like royalty. Although we were at first worried because of the location (in the midst of the medina), the beauty and cleanliness of the riad, and helpfulness of the staff totally squashed any fears. The breakfast was delicious and in a beautiful setting every morning up on the terrace. We requested a Friday evening traditional meal of couscous and were served the most delicious dinner! We highly recommend the Riad Flam!

Room Tip: The first floor rooms may not be as quiet as the 2nd because they open right up onto the courtyard.

We spent one week and experienced 1001 nights! Superb traditional maroc food, extraordinary service (they really can read your mind!) and oriental hammam and massages made our stay to a dream. The riad is restored and furnished in an lovely and beautiful way, modern and traditional in the same way.The rooms are very quiet and spacious. We had booked "la perle", the smallest of all rooms, and it was absolutely lovely for a one week´s stay.

The Riad is located perfectly in the medina close to all important sight seeing spots, that you easily can reach by foot. The neighborhood is very calm and safe. And taking a sun bath on the roof terrasse makes you believe that you are somewhere far away from the city.

The staff will organize everything that makes a stay pleasant and comfortable: Such as shuttle service from/to the airport, restaurant recommendations and reservations, local tour guides (english, french, german spanish speaking), etc.

Try it, and you will be amazed and absolutely satisfied.

Just returned yesterday from a lovely and exciting week in Marrakech. The Riad really is beautiful, courtyard very nice and jacuzzi bath on the roof terrace. We had the Sand Rose room but whilst beautifully decorated, it was oh, so tiny - we could hardly move around in it. Suitcase had to be stored upstairs. As noted in another comment, we had no TV but to be honest we were not expecting one and there really was not any room to put one either. On a couple of nights we were very cold, especially the first two on arrival. There was a remote control in the room for heating/air conditioning but there was no unit (and we searched the room for it) and we could not get warm at all on the 1st 2 nights.

The staff were very helpful and yes they could not do enough for you but an observation rather than a complaint - it would be lovely to have had tea/coffee making facilities available to guests in the lounge area just off the courtyard. Sometimes when there is not staff visible it would have been nice to be able to make your own coffee and especially when you come in late at night, it would be a real nice touch. I understand there is none of these facilities in any of the rooms but it is something that would have been appreciated and with no real expense to the Riad as to purchase drinks, food tea/coffee is quite expensive.

Our bathroom was really lovely and the shower was a great big power shower, fantastic in the mornings but we never seemed to be able to get hot water for a shower in the evenings, so after a hot sticky day out and about, we could not shower. Whilst these are only minor niggles, I would certainly recommend the Riad for a lovely stay.

Another observation was that the reception area did not have any kind of local information/literature with regard to places of interest /to visit. So if people did not bring along a guide book they would have struggled. English is not widely spoken so if you have basic french, you will need to brush up on it or take an electronic translator - I forgot to take mine along unfortunately and struggled to be understood.

Overall, a really lovely Riad with heavy carved doors and plush furnishings, just the little niggles that let it down for us, but definately go there. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: You might have to pay a bit more for one of the slightly larger rooms - the Sand Rose and I believe...

The riad has nine rooms all around the central courtyard. The room had a really Marrocan feeling with nice furniture and details. The room had heating coils in the floor so it was nice and varm even during the cold nights. The breakfast was perhaps a bit small but was always real tasty, everyday with newly baked pasteries and two days out of four we got pankakes, Marrakech style :-). The place is a bit hard to find the first time but is in a good location only 8 min walk from Jemaa el Fna.
