“Feels like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Me and my mother stayed here for 3 brilliant nights on may/2013.
Since the moment we set foot on Riad Andalla from the moment we left, we were treated like members of the family.
Christophe, Andre and their lovely crew were more than happy to provide us with first class service and arrange everything we needed.
The location is perfect, really close do Djemaa El Fna (you can see it from their terrace, which I understand is something unique for a riad in Marrakech), but not so much that the noise bothers you, we slept like babies every night.
I strongly recommend their dinner service, which was one of the best meals we had in Marrakech. Do not miss it.
All in all, a great experience which I hope to repeat soon.

Stayed here for 5 nights with my girlfriend last June, and it couldn't be a better choice. Location is spot on, just close to Djemaa El Fna right at the center of the Medina. Some might argue and complain about the noise that comes from the streets at night, but I think that's just part of the experience. The view from the terrace is incredible, on of the best sunsets in Marrakech's and the terrace itself is a great place to chill out in the afternoon, sipping a mint tea and resting the bones after a day in Souqs, or just to enjoy breakfast (which is included) and getting ready for the day. The staff is extremely helpful and gave us a very warm welcoming. Christophe, the owner, and the guys (Andrea, Younes did I get the names right?) were always available to help us out giving us information and all sorts of tips about restaurants, places to visit, transportation, etc. that were essential for us to enjoy even more our trip to Marrakech.
You can book a transfer straight from the airport to the Riad, we were also able to book a tour to Ourika Valley and visit the waterfalls with a driver and guide included during our stay.
The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated (as the entire Riad, by the way). We stayed at a kind of small one but there are bigger ones on the other floors, and we really didn't mind the space as it was very confortable.
Totally recommend Riad Andalla, specially for couples who seek a romantic escape. Perfect location, excellent staff, clean and confortable rooms and a typical Moroccan ambience for a very considerable price. What more can you ask for?

We stayed here for four brilliant nights and could not fault the place. The location is incredible with views across the vibrant Jamaa el Fna but a quiet resting spot within the Riad. Christophe was the best host we have ever experienced. He quickly worked out the type of holiday we needed and before we knew it the perfect mix of relaxation, exploration and great food was arranged. Definitely book Riad Andalla. We hope to be back!

Very nice place right in the center of the medina. Beautiful interior. Very nice rooftop terrace with good view on the Djemaa el Fna. Room was good, though not very spacious. Didn't bother us though. Everything was clean. Food was excellent. Christophe, the owner, gave us good tips on where to go and eat with his handdrawn map, which he must have drawn a 1000 times by now.. Prices were reasonable for a tourist hotspot I'd say. Had a great time in Marrakesh.

We had a wonderful time in Riad Andalla! The view from the terrace over the grand place is amazing, rooms are so charming, we could have bought the whole interior! Thanks for all the important and interesting information and organisation!

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Andalla, and had a fantastic experience. The Riad is located in a superb spot just off the main square with a roof terrace that has spectacular views overlooking Jemma el Fna. Christophe and Andre, and all of the staff at the Riad are very welcoming and friendly and make you feel right at home. We must also give a special mention to the cook as we had 2 dinners here, and they were by far the best meals that we ate in our whole Moroccan trip (in particular the vegetable tangine which was perfect.)
We highly recommend staying here! Hayley

Stayed here last week for 4 nights - and had an amazing time, the riad is beautiful, and the location is excellent - we loved the rooftop terrace where we could overlook the Place Djema El Fna - the only riad with this view! Christophe and André were perfect hosts - very welcoming and extremely helpful, booking us restaurants and organising a great day trip to the Ourika Valley. I really can't recommend this riad enough.
