“The heart of the Medina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This was the first place we stayed in Marrakech and its in a great easy to get to location. The people were friendly when we first arrived and the room was clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sunset. This place could improve on its service though, we arrived around 5pm and there was no food available at the riad even though they have a working kitchen. Okay I understand but then I wanted to call and make a reservation for a restaurant they acted like they were bending over backwards for me to use their land line.

I stayed here with a friend last week. We were only there one night and chose the riad based on TripAdvisor reviews.

The riad is in a great location, very close to the souk but the street it is in is very quiet. It is really nicely decorated and is very pretty.

The room was nice and well-looked-after, as was the riad in general. However, the hot water in the shower didn't last long and the shower ended up being cold.

The roof terrace was beautiful, we spent a morning sunbathing there before heading out of Marrakech to Essaouira.

Breakfast was pretty standard - bread, pancakes, orange juice etc. Nothing too spectacular, but nice and included in the price (as was the case with all the places we stayed).

Overall, I liked the place, mainly for the location and how well-maintained it is. However, having stayed at several other places during my trip, I am not sure the price, which was considerably higher than everywhere else we stayed, was entirely justified.

We were delighted with this Riad in Marrakech. Arriving at the end of March for two nights, after a week of trekking in the Sahara, we were pleased to find this Riad, quiet, clean and very welcoming. The staff were polite, efficient and helpful. the room was spacious and bright. Bathroom was well fitted and all amenities were in working order. The sun terrace was beautiful. I would recommend this to any traveller wishing to stay within the Medina.

We chose the Riad Itrane based on Tripadvisor reviews, and have been very happy with the result. The hotel is located down a narrow corridor off the souk near the main square. This means it has the great combination of being convenient to all the action, but far enough away not to be noisy. The rooms feel "authentic" but still have all amenities including very fast Wi-Fi (useful as we didn't arrange for an international data plan for our phones). A small confusion over how to swipe our American style credit card resulted in immediate attention by Patrice, the owner, even though he was away in France (and a very kind compensation for my trouble). The staff were all friendly and helpful; always smiling.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the terrace.

Myself and my friend had an enjoyable stay in this riad. The riad is very nice with beautiful decor. It is situated in a peaceful alley. Once you go out from this alley it gets very hectic. The location is very safe but overall I felt that all of Marrakesh is quite safe. The staff were very friendly and gave us tips on what to visit. Although breakfast starts at 8am, on three occasions we had to leave the hotel earlier and they still prepared us the breakfast which is also very rich, diverse and abundant. The terrace of the hotel is also lovely and offers nice views over the city, especially at sunset. The only downside is that we could easily hear noises coming from the adjacent room so one must keep very quiet but overall the stay was very good.

We've had a very pleasant and comfortable stay in Riad Itrane, and we enjoyed it very very much! Great hospitality and a warm welcoming place. Just the right size. Food and service are excellent. It was wonderful to relax in the riad with a good book and moroccan tea in beautiful surroundings. We got great advices for alternative restaurants, which we really enjoyed. They arranged a trip to the Atlas-mountains for us, a great chauffeur with lots of knowledge! We enjoyed it very much. The nature and surroundings of Marrakech are very different from the city, and interesting to investigate.
The owners have a good eye for details, colours and harmony, the riad feels very authentic. The staff is nice and charming, we felt we were in the best hands all the time! We wish them all the best in the future!
Marrakech as a city has wonderful architecture (inside the walls) and the local craftsmen are superb in woodcarving, metal-work, leather and carpets. The food is very good, and the inhabitants are very friendly and helpsome. But you never know if they are begging for money after showing you the way around a corner. That's a pity.
The "big square" is a lively place, but the traffic is a mess. Be aware! The only place we could find a trash-bin was in the riad, the roads in the city feels a bit "dirty". Before you go shopping in the souks, it can be practical to visit the "state-operated" cooperative for arts and crafts: "Ensemble Artisanal" . They have fixed prices, often lower than what you can find in the souks after bargaining.

Room Tip: It was a very good feeling to wake up in a harmonic and beautiful authentic room. But the beds cou...
