My friend and I stayed at Riad Azoulay last week for 3 nights. It’s by far our favorite memory of Marrakech. A home away from home and an escape from the bustling square, souks and motorbikes outside. We loved every bits of the Riad: the deco and design are beautiful yet not over the top; the rooms are spacious and clean; the owner and staff are so welcoming, kind and helpful; the food was delicious… One of our favorite things to do is to drink mint tea and have cookies on the terrace at night. Two girls in Marrakech for the first time can be hectic but with the help from the staff at the Riad, it really made things so much easier and enjoyable for us. They arranged transportation from the airport, they even bought train tickets for us and arranged last minute dromedary rides. Younes is so helpful and friendly. He showed us how to get to various places and he found the bracelet my friend left behind and brought to us before we got in the taxi – THANK YOU YOUNES!
Regarding the comments of the location and the 4 o’clock prayer from some of the previous reviewers, we really didn’t find either being a big deal. The Riad is in the Jewish quarter of the medina (south side) and inside a dark alley. The shops around it close around 10pm. However, unless you are planning to party until 2am in Marrakech, it’s really not that big a deal to walk back at night (although it’s better if you are not alone). Both of us are good sleepers so we went right back to sleep after the prayer.
We highly recommend the Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech!
