“Riad Mehdia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I visited Marrakech several times and stayed in few different riads.
I believe Riad Mehdia has the only advantage of very good location in one of the widest street in medina and the car park is few yards away. Th riad has it is own private car and driver if you require one.
It is 5 minutes walk to Jema Fina square.
Food is average and breakfast similar to one you get in other riads. Staff are not particularly friendly but polite.
If you don't like cats then keep away as few would be joinning you for the meal.

We stayed here for one night after reading the positive reviews on this and other sites.

After landing in Marrakech, we took a taxi (which by the way costs the same as the airport bus: 60dh) that dropped off at Djemaa el Fna and from there the riad is about a 10 minute walk. We had 4 pieces of luggage and it was possible to maneuver the way although you need to often make way for the countless motorcycles, bicycles, and scooters. To reach the riad, we walked straight down Rue des Banques and made a left turn onto the first main street (there are 2 restaurants at the beginning of that street).

The riad is nicely decorated with tasteful Moroccan furniture and many plants that brought a taste of nature away from the heavily polluted streets of Marrakech. It was also relatively quite inside the riad altough you are able to hear the motorcycles on the street.

We were greeted by I believe the owner, a nice French gentleman who spoke English. You need to fill out a short form that all the hotels and riads are required to gather and after you make your payment, you are free to go to your room. Our room was on the first floor and surprisingly was not noisy despite being close to the front door.

The room itself had a full sized bed, 2 chairs, and a coffee table. It was a decent size but a bit challenging to fit 4 pieces of luggage. The bathroom had an attractive mosaic sink and a lovely Moroccan style clay enclosed shower. There were no problems with getting enough water pressure or having hot enough water. The room was clean and the bed comfortable.

The included breakfast starts at 8:30am but the staff was able to prepare ours at 7:30am since we had a tour starting at 8am. The breakfast was pretty basic, with 2 kinds of breads, some spreads, coffee, and orange juice..nothing to compliment or complain about, it was enough to get the job done.

Overall, this is a good choice for the value, service, and location.

We stayed at Riad Medhia for 5 nights - From the moment we arrived at the airport to the moment we left all our needs were met. All the staff were very pleasant and attentive, always there for you when needed but never intrusive. The room we stayed in was beautiful and clean
and very peaceful - perfect after a day in Marrakech. We ate in the Riad on the first evening and the food was excellent, breakfast each morning was also excellent with a great selection of jams and morrocan breads, fresh juice and coffee. The location of the Riad is very central and gives you great access to the main square and the souks. We had a trouble free stay in a beautiful Riad - highly recommended.

We stayed here early January and really enjoyed our time. Rooms were clean, breakfast was delicious - so many jams! Service was really good. If only it was warmer to enjoy the pool, but we did enjoy sitting on the rooftop lounges. The place had plants everywhere, and it was decorated very nicely. A room with a mini fridge in summer might be ideal.

Me and my boyfriend said here during our stay in Marrakech and it was such a pleasant, hospitable and beautiful riad. The staff and owner were amazing, welcoming and friendly which really made our stay and the breakfasts were delicious. The location is really good too! If/When I come back to Marrakech I'm going to ensure I stay here!!!!

Set in the heart of Marrakech, this Riad is probably one of the best. Close to everything and a great terrace. All the staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is delicious.

I stayed here in Dec 2011 and fell in love with the staff, the riad itself, the old town, even the speedy motorbikes were a delight (in their own way). Returning from the hustle and bustle into this riad, our sanctuary and haven, was like coming home to our own palace. We felt special and valued. And the staff really were generous and so friendly. I hope to go back again in 2012 and I will stay nowhere else. I will post pics so you can see how amazing it is too!
