“A heavenly stay in the hearth of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

From the moment you set foot into Riad Azouley you are surrounded by a heavenly atmosphere: first the decor, a rare blend of exoticism and soft basic -far too many riads in Marrakech feel too baroque and decadent in my opinion, then the soothing scent created by the incense burners and the mint tea the staff is welcoming you with and finally the whimsical sound of the water fountain by the central pool: as a result all your senses feel captured and seduced... I was truly impressed by the whole experience! Max, the manager, was extremely attentive and charming, the local staff was very warm and efficient: I had dinner twice (you should agree the menu items in advance) and the local dishes were prepared and served to perfection. I also had a massage and a gommage: you can chose amongst a number of services, including the hamman, which i didn't try. You can chill by the spectacular terrace overlooking the city roofs and sided by a minaret hosting a storks nest on its top! The only advice I'd give to travelers is to be ready to sleep in a very noisy city: at 4AM you'll hear the muezzin calling and until very late the locals are keeping the streets very much alive. Bring your earplugs along and ask for a room away from the street if you are a light sleeper. But that's part of Marrakech fascination: indeed I can't wait to go back to Riad Azoulay!

Nothing better that this charming,cozy Riad as a base for your Marrakech discovery. Nested in the ancient Jew Medina, right inside the Suk Area, it allows you to feel and live the real Marrakech around you, and in few minutes of pleasant and safe walking you easily join all the most beautiful places in town. Rooms are big,confortable, lusciously decorated (each different form others), meals are extraordinary and moreover the atmosphere that Max and his crew are able to create makes really you feel at home. I will come back for sure!

Excellent riad in a very nice area of Marrakech. The riad is a very nice building, a rare example of the local architecture. The style is pure Arabic without contamination with modern and fancy elements. I definitely prefer this style to the arabic-european riads that one can find nowadays in Marrakech... but this is my personal point of view.
Personnel is friendly and professional. The riad offers a very good breakfast but you can also decide to have your dinner there. Dining at the riad is good. You can truly enjoy and taste different dishes and not only the usual « tajine » and « couscous » that taste all the same around the city.
