“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Riad Azoulay is quite frankly the best holiday accommodation that I have EVER stayed.
The staff especially Rida and Bushra who were absolutely delightful and went out of their way to make our stay truly memorable.
On our arrival Max the owner surprised us with a free room upgrade which was very kind.
The room itself was gorgeous with a huge queen size four poster bed. The bathroom/Shower room was very authentic and the complimentary shower gels and lotions were simply lovely.
Complimentary authentic mint tea is served daily in the riad along with yummy morrocan pastries. I have tried tea in many locations in marrakech, but I must say the tea served in this riad is by far the best!
I will definitely be revisiting Riad Azoulay on my next visit to Marrakech without a doubt and would recommend this is anyone thinking of visiting Marrakech especially for couples who fancy a romatic getaway!

Room Tip: As the occasion of our visit was a birthday Max (the owner) kindly gave us a free upgrade. To be hon...

Riad Azoulay is the most beautiful /romantic/peaceful Riad in Marrakech!  Massimilliano and his staff were more than generous in taking care of us...from arranging the pick up to and from the airport and to guiding us and helping arrange daily tours/excursions. 
Also to mention the food (especially dinner) was the best meal I ever had! (made form Massimilliano himself) in the most beautiful setting by the indoor pool.
Our room was beautiful, very clean and large, the rooftop was so peaceful -it was an escape/an oasis from the madness of the Medina (in which the Riad is situated just a few steps away-amazing location!) In short, Riad Azoulay is just perfect!
I highly recommend to stay at this here! and we will definitely be back for sure!!!

Siamo appena rientrati da questa bellissima vacanza in una città che non stanca mai. Si arriva al riad attraverso un dedalo di stradine nella mellah. I profumi sono inebrianti e il calore del caos confortante di Marrakech ci accolgono: siamo nel souq delle spezie. Oltre un bellissimo portone ci accoglie con la sua grande cortesia e gentilezza Massimiliano. Il riad ha un'atmosfera discreta, sobriamente elegante ed accogliente. Un'oasi di pace, relax e buon gusto. La mattina delle buonissime colazioni, sempre diverse ti coccolano, con la presenza della simpatica Meti.
Un servizio attento e caloroso. Una cucina deliziosa, con un'attenzione speciale di Massimiliano alle nostre richieste. Bellissima l'esperienza dei trattamenti benessere: l'hammam e i massaggi. Ci torneremo sicuramente.

We chose this Riad on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and were not at all disappointed. Riad Azoulay was a little bit of heaven in Marrakech. The staff could not have been more gracious and attentive, the owner Massimiliano was exceptionally kind and generous. The taxi was waiting for us at the airport. The rooms were spotless. Tea was always available on our return from the Medina. We had two wonderful evening meals. It was all perfect. Thank you to all the staff. We would recommend it to anyone.

Riad Azoulay is a beautiful sanctuary near the Spice Souk; the Riad arranged for a driver to pick us up at the Airport and a staff member was waiting for us outside the souk to lead us to the riad. It's a short walk through the souk and a great first introduction to Marrakech!

The riad is impeccably managed; the staff are incredibly attentive and polite. The breakfasts are served daily in different places in the riad - poolside, rooftop, etc - which is lovely. The food is fantastic and very, very plentiful. Our last day at the riad we had a very early AM flight -- Massimo arranged for a full breakfast for us! He and the staff are so hospitable!

The decor is understated, elegant and chic. Great care has been made in the restoration of the riad and it is very well cared for. I travelled with a friend and we shared a room on the second floor which was lovely -- king sized bed (as 2 singles were not available) - and it was fine. There was a lovely sitting area near a fireplace; the bathroom had a lovely shower with toilet and bidet.

We also ate regularly at the Riad - some evenings we had snacks (brevat) and wine (a very nice Moroccan wine) and one night a traditional Marrakechi dinner, which was superb, again with Moroccan wine.

One day we shared a ride to Essaouira with other guests from the Riad - we had a wonderful time. Essaouira is a lovely city; the driver was extremely professional and shared information and history of Morocco on the ride. Long story short, Massimo can arrange for a number of excursions ... other guests at the riad took the day trip to the waterfalls and said they were impressed.

One thing to note is that a mosque is located just next door so you will enjoy a lovely wake up call to prayer at 5 AM daily. We got used to this and after a few days came to enjoy the lovely singing of the prayer.

I really enjoyed Riad Azoulay and will return when i am next in Marrakech.

It happens to us and I think,it happens to everyone, who is entering. Just very important thing - if you coming first time there, you need to be shure,that someone from the riad will meet you on the entrance of the medina!!!
Very nice,quiet and stylish place and we can recommend it for everybody! And if you'll come there, please give our best wishes to Massimiliano and all other in riad Azoulay!

Room Tip: All of them are beautiful, but suite on the first floor are really special. And if you want to catch...

We began our trip to Morocco at Riad Azoulay and found it the perfect way to enter a new culture. The immersion began when helpful and engaging Redouen met us at the entrance to the spice souk and we plunged into the wonderful smells, sounds, and sights of the narrow passageway. Breakfasts were the best we had in 3 weeks in Morocco, the two dinners we ate there were tied for our very favorites, the rooftop was a wonderful retreat, and the in-house hammam and massage experience was the height of pampering. We wholeheartedly recommend this as a fabulous place to stay right in the heart of the medina.
