“Amazing place, nightmare to find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

we were emailed some directions by the owner however the riad is very difficult to find! Once you eventually find this riad you will be greeted by a friendly family who offer brilliant hospitality.
The breakfast was amazing and the building is beautiful.
Rooms are clean and spacious.
Can get a little cold at night!
Would highly recommend this riad but would recommend the owner creates better directions to find this place.

I had an excellent experience staying at Riad Sidi Omar. The breakfasts in the morning were absolutely delicious and Omar did a great job in making us all feel very welcome. I would say to make sure to contact Omar ahead of time about finding the Riad, because it is in the medina and so a little difficult to locate. However, once found it was by far one of the nicest riad's I have ever found in Morocco. The best part was that Omar gave us great recommendations for places to find good, cheap, delicious food and drink. Definitely ask him on your first day which stalls to go to for seafood (14) and orange juice (35)!

I had a wonderful time staying at Riad Sidi Omar. Omar and his family were so welcoming and hospitable. He was very helpful and we had some great chats. The Riad is beautiful, it was lovely sitting out on the roof and the breakfasts were really excellent. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much Omar for your wonderful hospitality, and for making my stay in Marrakech so memorable :)

A big thanks to Omar and his whole family for his unbelievable support by our problems... We really enjoyed the real moroccan hospitality in this riad. it's so quiet and close to the square. The room was clean and perfect. We cannot forget the delicious breakfast which we will miss a lot.
We came as guests we leave as friends, for sure we will come back inshallah!!!!

We stayed here for a few days and were disappointed with this riad.
The previous reviews did not reflect the quality and service that we received at the riad,
The room was dusty, towels and sheets were not clean, we could even smell the perfume of the previous guest on the pillow.
It was also scary walking from the riad to anywhere as there were many dark alleyways, would not recommend this riad if you are a solo traveler.
The information about Morocco that we received from the riad was also lacking,
the owner was not aware of opening times, or prices my guide book was far more useful.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same value, do not pay extra for a deluxe room.

We had a lovely time! Every day we started with birdsinging and a great Moroccan breakfast. Two times we enjoyed a dinner at the Riad, which what was very, very good! Omar and his family gave us a warm feeling the whole week and although we are at home now, they still do! We came as guests and left as friends! They gave us a great memory and we will certainly going back…..

Thanks again,
Math & Brigitte
