“Peaceful Riad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Stayed in the Sun room. 3 night short break. Room was fine except for lack of hot water. bathroom basic with loose taps and peeling paint. Location is perfect for a short break. within minutes you enter the hustle and bustle and NOISE!!of Marrakech, but close the Riad door and all is quiet. Good breakfast with great Jams.
Not suitable for unrulely young children with water pool in centre of Riad.

Arriving in Marrakesh to the traffic, hustle and bustle is a great experience , but what topped it was when Rhadija opened the door to the riad. A beautiful oasis of calm, that is so close to all the major sights. We stayed half board in the "birds room ". The room was gorgeous as was all the decor in the riad. We could not believe how quiet it was inside the riad and also how fantastic the service was, nothing was too much trouble for Rhadija, she constantly had the biggest smile and really took great care of us. she cooked for us every day and would cook us anything we wanted. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning was wonderful, reading in the courtyard was very relaxing and we slept like babies in the most comfortable bed after a day sighteeing. We would highly reccomend this riad, you are guaranteed great service, a lovely atmosphere and a location that is unbelievably close to the square and all the other great attractions of Marrakesh. Thankyou again Rhadija for making our stay so wonderful, we wish we could have brought you home with us!!! Mr and Mrs Ross

Room Tip: Ask for the birds room, gorgeous and quiet

We really enjoyed our time in Marrakech and at the Riad Amiris. The owners are very personable and helpful and the staff are friendly and helpful as well. The Riad is decorated beautifully and is a peaceful oasis right next to the hectic and beautiful Jemaa el-Fnaa. It was great being able to go out and explore and then get back to our room quickly. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to enjoy a bottle of wine at sunset and listen to the call to prayer.

We stayed in the star room and our only suggestions would be: improve the shower situation (water doesn't stay hot for long and the shower head sprays water all over the bathroom when attached to the wall), soften the beds up a bit and add a bit of protein to the breakfast (the breads and jams are delicious though).

All in all we would definitely stay here again!

The service was wonderful, my dad commented that it was one of the most beautiful hotels he had stayed in- breakfast was great, there was a a nice fountain and a great terrace. At night, we slept very well, you couldn't hear any of the noise from the streets, but as soon as you walk out the doors you are in the middle of shops and restaurants. As with all hotels in the windy streets of the medina, it is a bit difficult to find, but it is centrally located and close to all the sites in and around the old town.

Also, we had a problem with our car when we were leaving, and the owner was kind enough to come to the parking lot with us, talked to the parking guards, and get cables to try and start the car. He stayed with us for over an hour!

Overall, great hotel, highly recommended.

This Riad was the most wonderful place we could have wished for,from the beautiful inner courtyard to the roof terrace from where we could see La Koutoubia mosque whilst eating breakfast or dinner.
Khadidja is a true star........she prepares lovely breakfasts and mouthwatering Moroccan tagine dinners on request...and don't forget to try the Moroccan 'grey' wine; Michel wil tell you all about it!
Fabienne arranged our transport to and from the airport..essential as there is a 5 to 6 minute walk from the car parking to the riad along narrow alleyways.
She also arranged a local guide who took us around the major sites of Marrakech and gave us great advice about where to buy goods and how much to pay in the souks.
Fabienne also arranged a day trip to the Atlas mountains where we visited a Berber market and ate lunch in a Berber home,then climbed up to the source of a waterfall...an unforgettable day.
The rooms in the Riad were atmospheric and a real historical experienceto stay in..we have travelled to many countries over the past 25 years but have never stayed in such a romantic place...we shall return.
Ignore this Riad and you will regret it!
