“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Well, what can I say - perfect, brilliant, a quiet location in the medina. Absolutely wonderful. Abdelhai on reception arranged an airport transfer which I would recommend if you haven't been to Marrakesh before as it made life really easy for us. We had an early flight in so he also sorted lunch for us which was very tasty.

Along with the other reviewers to Trip Advisor I would wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful Riad.

Room Tip: The downstairs bedrooms are maybe a little less private as they open on to the courtyard. However th...

This was our first trip to Marrakech and we couldn't have found a more perfect location to stay. Located just a few minutes walk from the main square this hotel was just perfect. Staying in a hotel where you feel that you are the only people their is a rare pleasure, but the staff are so discreet they are almost invisible until when you need them and then they just can't do enough to help you. The rooms, terrace and breakfast are impeccable .

The medina is manic but this hotel is so so peaceful and calm you feel that you are a million miles away from the madness that is the medina. A great place to stay
.

Room Tip: Jade room is amazing

Should be one of the best choise in the middle of the old town in Marrakesh.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is delicious. All rooms are very comfortable and clean, decorated with the ambience of Marrakesh makes you feel the tradition of the city.

Room Tip: We were 3 families and stayed at 3 different rooms those all have different style. We all agreed tha...

I have never written a review before but felt I had to say something about this amazing place. Located just off the Medina you walk down these little alleyways in the old part of the city and greeted by very friendly staff .I cannot really add any more than the other reviews it is a great place to stay and anything you ask for is not a problem. We only stayed a few days , it was quiet yet central , the rooms were very comfortable and car hire / trips were organised straight away at prices we could not get ourselves.
On holiday we don't normally like to eat at the hotel but on our first night having been shopped out we stayed in and had an excellent tajin which turned out to be the best of our stay.
Because we only had a few days to get away we stayed at the Riad and did days out to chill out and attempt a tan . Most of the hotels outside the city allow you to visit and use the pool and facilities charging a reasonable daily rate . We went to hotel Beldi ( fantastic ) and hotel Salman and had great days.
A wonderful few days , great city lots to do and made perfect by a great place to stay.
Don't forget to try the mojitas .

Room Tip: We had the suite but all rooms looked great

Our stay at Riad Flam made our 5 day visit to MarraKech perfect. After walking along the very narrow streets of the old part of town we arrived at this most beautiful guesthouse. On arriving we were taken to to the roof top veranda where we were offered delicious mint tea and very good cookies, and shown around the house after.
Attention has been paid to every little detail (we are including some photos) so the great overall feeling is one of comfort, beauty and quality - not to forget wellness! The owner, mme Flam, is also trained in different types of massage methods and on the ground floor of the riad is a hammam, as beautiful as the rest of the house, where she gave us traditional hammam treatment together with gommage! Our skin was like a baby´s bottom afterwards.
Our bed was very good and the bed linen of good quality cotton; heaven to sleep in.
We had dinner twice at the house (let them know beforehand) and had the most delicious home cooked meals; best ones we had in Marrakech.
Mme Flam and her staff were extremely nice and they also arranged for us a good trip into the Atlas mountains, with a guide in a good car. Also for a birthday dinner at a popular restaurant and transportation. We forgot to call them on arrival to Marrakech, but it is necessary as they come and escort you to the house; taxes can not drive you all the way.
It must be a good place to stay at, when you don´t really want to leave - and that is how we felt. Hope to see you again, mme Flam and staff!

Possibly one of the best places I have ever stayed in and will stay in, in the world. The moment you step through the door, the accomodation offers a real wow factor. Each room is unique and beautiful. The service is 24/7 and utterly charming with numerous members of staff waiting on your every need. There was so many aspects to enjoy - the massage, the food, the decor, the hot tub, jacuzzi, sun beds, bar...even the house pets! Very relaxing and somewhere I would definitely recommend. A short walk outside and you are in the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city experiencing the souks, motorbikes and plethora of sparkling shoes and lanterns. A group of 15 of us stayed for quite a riotous two nights and were very looked after by the patient staff!

15 of us as a work incentive descended on Riad Flam on Friday evening and left yesterday on Sunday morning. In the run up to arriving, the staff were so helpful on email , they arranged transfers and dinner on our arrival. Dinner was fantastic. The place is a Den of tranquility and having planned our Friday night out of the Riad quickly changed our minds to stay in and enjoy the facilities on arrival. That we definately did. The staff could not do enough for us all. The massage by the owner is outstanding. The Riad's attention to detail is spectacular. The cocktails are great, the breakfasts delicious. They will organise whatever you need, our Medina tour was a great afternoon out to witness the all encompassing sights and smells of the heart of Marrakech. The real fire alight having dinner was pretty special. If you have a chance to stay here, without hestitation you should, you will not be disappointed. I will definately be back for some R&R.

Room Tip: All the Double rooms are great and have their own uniqueness.
