“Charming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Just back from Marrakech. Stayed at Riad Flam for 2 nights. Very strategically located. Just a 10min walk from the Jema El Fnaa(the square). Close to all the main attractions and Souks. It is a beautiful Riad, very tastefully done. The decor is very appealing and well maintained. Feels like another world once you enter!
The staff were very helpful from the time we met them. They were kind enough to pick us up from the airport and wait for us at the Riad as we landed late night. Abdul was very polite and helped us a lot by giving us the map and recommendations for things to do in the city. Overall everybody is very kind and make you feel comfortable.
The rooms are brilliant! The beds are comfortable and toilets clean and house keeping makes sure they keep it that way by changing towels, tidying up regularly!
The roof top plunge pool is stunning and perfect to relax and sun bathe. There is even a massage and a hamam centre at the Riad. The owner is an in-house masseuse.
The only downside was that there was some work happening in the building and was a little noisy in the afternoon (blame it on the timing).
The other thing I would like to say is if you are staying at this Riad and planning on a desert safari, do not approach the Riad. They charged us double the price and once we got there we were surprised to meet people who had paid almost half price for the same trip!! You rather book it through the agencies on the streets.
Otherwise I highly recommend this Riad! A total winner!!

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floors if possible.

A warm sincere welcome by the friendly staff. Lovely rooms - clean. Relaxing escape from the hectic marrakech streets. Would be happy to stay there again! Recommend you try riad flam above usual franchised hotel chains.

We stayed at Riad Flam for three nights on our first trip to Marrakech. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We both had a massage, which was fantastic and much needed after two days of sightseeing by foot.

Our room was probably one of the smallest but was perfectly adequate, particularly as we preferred to use the courtyard for relaxing and reading.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor and although it had a small window onto the street, it was very peac...

This Riad was renovated by a Parisian masseuse who now not only runs it but also is the in-house masseuse. Its a wonderful establishment, calm and tasteful in all rooms and the central court yard, the service and breakfasts were wonderful. We were welcomed with a private talk with the manager who gave us some bearings, a map and some recommendations of things to do during our stay. I can't recommend this place enough. All in all a total winner. Get a room on the upper floors.

There are no words to describe how beautiful this Riad is. We stayed for 8 nights and still did not want to leave. The rooms are beautiful, the courtyard is beautiful. Food is delicious and staff are lovely. Madame Flam's massages are fantastic. The Riad is just around the corner from Palais Bahia and a short 10 minute walk through market streets to the main square Jemaa El Fna. Do not get put off by what anyone says, this is literally the place to stay in the Old Town. Don't miss out! We will most definitely be going again one day!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful, but we were on the first floor and we preferred this as it gave a li...

This riad contains all you Need, visiting The chaotic city Marrakech. After 15 days of dessert in Nomadic land i ended my trip here in this riad. Perfect location in Centre, fantastic roof terras With wirlpool And best massages of Marocco. Based in an old historical building - inside you don't hear any of The noise in The city. But walking out The front door, And turn 4 corners, you are in The middle of The busy And Tiny streets around The famous square. I Will return here, even when it's only for a weekend. Highly recommended! A top 10 choice!

Good riad! We started in one of the smaller rooms within the courtyard, good room however can be a little loud sometimes through! Generally all good!
One tip - we changed a large amount of sterling at airport and only had large notes (200) the two blokes whom carried our luggage expected a tip, riad only had 100 charge so tipped them £8 or so for carrying bags 400m. Riad should tip them out of the 20 euro fee, I feel or just make sure you have some small notes!
Breakfast was good and generally all good! Would stay again....

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and avoid courtyard room
