“Tranquil haven in bustling Jewish Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

An immaculatey refurbished RIad in one of the old parts of the city. We arrived late at night and our pre-booked taxi stopped in a busy street. Fortunately, help was on hand to bring our bags and negotiate the narrow streets through the ancient spice market to the Hotel. Staff were exceptionally helpful and attentive. They helped arrange a tranfer to Essaouria. Great rooftop terrace from which we could see the snowtopped High Atlas. The food was excellent and served in a traditional Morrocan way. Our family, including our three teenagers/young adults all enjoyed the stay. Great locaiton for visiting the old palaces and close to Djamaa El Fna square where all the action is. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from 4 very enjoyable nights spent at the elegant and stylish Riad Azoulay. From the start, we were welcomed by our very attentive, polite hosts, who immediately made us feel at home. The location is perfect from which to explore central Marrakech. The Riad is a calm and relaxing haven from the busy whirl outside; it feels as if you are stepping into a different world on entry. The accommodation is very clean and elegantly decorated, but best of all is the quality of the service from the young assistants. They are impeccable in their manners and attitude; nothing is too much trouble. They convey a calm, gentle manner that sits well with the overall atmosphere in the riad.
We particularly enjoyed the authentic Moroccan evening meals prepared for us; much the best food we had whilst in Marrakech. Also enjoyed a massage, which was very good value. Altogether a wonderful experience-many thanks to all at Riad Azoulay.

We just returned from a memorable, 3-night stay at Riad Azoulay. From the very beginning, Massimiliano and his two assistants took very good care of us, including seamless meet-and-greet airport transfers and coordinating our schedules with the perfect mix of tours-- the guided city tour, camel ride, and Atlas Mountain treks were all so memorable. And we even squeezed in some shopping time in the souks!

Upon check-in after a long flight, we were served relaxing mint tea and snacks and pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite. More importantly, the Riad was safe, impeccably clean and well-maintained, as well as elegantly decorated (not excessive). We especially enjoyed the authentic and delicious Moroccan dinner prepared by the Riad's kitchen after a long day of touring. Also the in-house hammam/massage is a must-try!

But what really distinguished Riad Azoulay was their exceptional service and attitude. A big shout-out to Max's two young assistants, who were like our personal butlers and as accommodating as could be throughout our stay.

We have so many memories from this trip, made possible by the special team at Riad Azoulay. A big thank you.

Wonderfull position in the Jewish area, close to Marrakech center. Perfect service with local employers and elegant taste inside the building. We have tried some tastefull dinner in Azoulay restaurant. Massimiliano and his partners are really polite and friendly. A really nice contest . Thanks

Spent two nights at Riad Azoulay in February 2013. It was an excellent stay all the way around. Communications with Massimiliano were outstanding (I needed to change dates and this was all done quickly and easily; I also changed arrival times at the train station--again, flawless). I was met at the Marrakech train station and again at the entrance of the spice market--friendly and efficient. The Riad is beautiful and very comfortable--I had the Favorit room, which was great. Excellent breakfast (baked goods, coffee, fruit and yoghurt) and a wonderful Tajine and egg plant dishes for dinner. Even took in the Hamman and massage--outstanding. Very relaxing after two long days of walking in the Medina and the souk. The Riad was a really great place to come back to after a trip out to busy Marrakech. Location is excellent. Very, very close to Palace Badia and Bahia, adjacent to the spice market, near the Saadir tombs, a pleasant 15-20 minute walk to Jemma el Fna. Moroccan staff were pleasant, friendly, helpful, low key.

Room Tip: Favorit room was very nice. Had WiFi from the bed!

Behind a rather small door in the heart of the medina lies a paradise that made me wanna stay forever. This is the place you want to be at if you enjoy a beautiful setting, confortable rooms, delicious breakfast and the kindest, most welcoming staff that will do anything to make you feel just perfect. I don't have anything but appreciation words when I tell people about my experience in this riad. It has magic going on!
