“Fantastic!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

After a long flight from Houston via Paris, we landed in the ochre city, the bustling Marrakech!!!
The driver was waiting for us at the airport with his old tiny car were our luggage can barely fit. About 15mn drive he drop us on a small square in the center of the Medina, from where we had to walk to the Riad. No waiting time, we were directly in the atmosphere...
As soon as Isabelle the owner, open the door of her place, the tension and fatigue of the journey was gone. We were so impress by the calm and the tranquility. The building is amazingly wonderful, the rooms are gorgeous, the decor is perfectly well done!
Just a time to clean and change clothes, we met her on the roof for a glass of wine. We discover a wonderful terraces with a pool and a tent where we enjoyed to lay down for the rest of our stay after visiting the chaos of the souks!
We had a wonderful time, Isabelle and her staff were incredibly welcoming, we were home!
Thank you!

Perfect place to stay in the medina!!! It is a small and romantic riad very well decorated. The rooms are very beautiful and clean. The situation is good (very close to the Place des Epices) and the owner, Isabelle, is great!!!! She will help you with everything you need!!! Very good choice for sleeping in Marrackech. Ask for dinner there, it was wonderful!!!

Our stay at the Riad Hizad was wonderful! The building and rooms are beautiful and clean, and the roof terrace is the perfect place to relax after indulging in the chaos of the souks!
Isabelle and her staff made us incredibly welcome, and she was the perfect host! Her restaurant recommendations were amazing (which she not only booked, but also arranged transport for!)
The overall location was also good, walking distance to all the main tourist attractions!

What a wonderful place, the pictures do not show its true beauty. Isabelle is a fantastic host, nothing is too much trouble. My husband and i took our daughter and friend, Isabelle helped us with everything, it was our first trip there ( wont be our last ) and nothing was too much trouble; we all feel like we have made a friend.
We were only there for three nights and ate at the Hizad for two of them. The food and WINE! were delicious, eaten in the dining room by a roaring fire, the weather was not good for our stay. When it was dry we sat on the beautiful roof terrace as much as we could.
It is spotless, a credit to her lovely staff. Can't wait to return, hopefully to better weather
As its not too big it would be a fantastic place to take over with a group of family or friends.
Thankyou for everything Isabelle

Riad Hizad is more beautiful than in the photos. The 5 suites are all unique with rather spectacular bathrooms. The roof terrace provides the perfect spot for breakfast or laying in the sun with a book. The staff provides discreet and friendly service and the owner, Isabelle, is happy to provide advice and directions for restaurants and other sites. If you decide on a riad, consider this one!

Room Tip: The garden suite is an excellent choice to be more isolated.

The pictures do not do this wonderful hotel justice. The rooms are amazingly luxurious! We were planning on staying st the four season but opted for a riad instead. Several of our friends from new York told us about riad hizad. What a wonderful surprise! We flew from London to fes' then ended in Marrekech. The owner Isabelle (an smart and funny french lady) made the experience unique, and provided us her driver to take us to all of her off the beaten bath. (grest rugs, and other unique items) Breakfast was served daily on the beautiful roof top. We will absolutely go back!!! Do your self a favor and stay here.

beautiful place, each room has a different decor, the roof terrace is far more better than in the picture, it was wonderful to be able to cool off in the pool. the staffs were very caring, the lady owner kept an eye on everything to make sure we were happy but at the same time respecting our privacy. I shall definetly return and so my friends.
