“traditional riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

just returned from short stay, the amiris is a traditional riad that is in the middle of the medina and 5 mins away from the main square.
the tangines cooked by Khadija are lovely, and you will be welcomed with a mint tea and maderia cake,
the rooms are all different, 3 on ground floor off the innercourtyard, and others up stairs. mine was on ground floor and was long but narrow, but very pretty and rustic, no windows or locks on doors, but felt safe and comfortable in beautiful bed.
the roof terrace was fantastic, and recommend having your breakfast up there, breakfast was breads,crepes and jams, with fresh juice and coffee.
the amiris is traditionally decorated, comfortable and clean, it may be shabby chic in morrocan standards, but i feel it has its own special ambience, and depicts standard that is favouable in this price bracket.
mant thanks to the in house staff, Khadiaja and daughter fatima who catered for my requests for extra coffee and mint teas.

We booked this riad on the back of the very positive reviews. One word would sum it up - disappointing! We stayed in the etoiles room. The paint was peeling off the bathroom walls, the sink was grubby with loose taps, when I dropped some clothing behind a chair and picked it back up it was covered in dust, the room was never serviced during our stay and we had to request new toilet rolls etc. If you like breads and jam then breakfast is fine but this was all that was on offer and it was the same offering every day. Rahdija etc were courteous and responded to specific requests but did not go out of their way to help. You are not able to lock your rooms and you do not have a personal key to the riad. The location of the riad is fantastic, very close to the main square etc. We had a really great time in Marrakech but it certainly wasn't due to staying here.

Room Tip: Do not choose the etoiles room - it needs a makeover. I think the rooms upstairs would offer more pr...

Had a lovely winter break in the Riad Amiris! the location was excellent, the staff were really helpful - especially Khadija! - the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and really spacious with en suites and a hairdryer! it was such a calm and relaxing place to stay considering the liveliness of the square during the day and in the evening! The new town was also only 10mins away from here and was great with all the shops & restaurants & amazing food! I would defintiely come back here and have already reccommend family and freinds to stay here!

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!
