“Relaxing and cozy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

While touring Morocco for 35 days, this Riad was perfect for all the reasons: great location (just 10 minutes walk to Djemaa El-Fna, Koutobia and other historic sites plus banks, exchanges, ATM, etc), simple but beautiful cozy room, clean and above all a great place to relax in the calm medina' alleyways during my 8 days in Marrakech! Nice and helpful staff. I recommend this Riad and if back again to Marrakech I'll stay there for sure. Insh'allah!
Cheers from Macau SAR -China

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

I stayed in Riad Louaya for 3 nights with my mother and sister. We liked this riad because:
- it's relatively easy to find: it's close to Dar el Bacha palace and famous restaurants Dar Moha and Dar Marjana, so it's easy to tell taxi driver/caleche driver where to go
- It's relatively close to important sights: Marrakesh museum/Madrasah Ben Youssef is arond 10 mins walk; Djemaa el Fna is 10-15 mins walk
- it's very quiet and comfortable
- the staff is VERY friendly and helpful: I forgot one of my bags when checking out and one of the staff ran all the way to the main road to give it to me
- we felt quite safe walking around the area after dark
- the riad decoration is beautiful but restrained -- but you can still see the original features of the riad such as the calligraphy around the courtyard, which we found very interesting

One thing I don't like is the bed in our room (the triple room) - it's very hard, especially the single bed. If you like soft bed then this will be a problem; if you prefer moderately firm bed (like me) then you will find a sleep but only after a while.
