“Fantastic! Faultless! Excellent value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

What a fantastic holiday. The Riad is in the medina which is a wonderful experience in itself. Staff are amazing so helpful, one day we lay in bed until late, so in true hotel style I expected to have missed breakfast, not here the staff are only interested in giving you exactly what you want from your holiday. I had a wonderful massage and my husband really enjoyed a cooking class, I would recommend you have a meal at the hotel it's wonderful authentic Morrocan cuisine served on the roof terrace in a romantic setting. Rooms are beautiful and air con is very effective, the plunge pool is great for cooling off burning feet after lots of walking. The welcome is great lots of information on where to go what is the correct price to pay and even walked to the main square to get our bearings. The only complaint I have is that the bed was too comfortable, hence one very lazy morning, it's hard to get out! I can't speak highly of this hotel and it's staff stop looking elsewhere and book you won't regret it.

Riad Argan is a wonderfull place to stay in Marrakech, we loved th peace an calm of the riad compared to the bustle of the city outside. Françoise and the team were so welcoming and helpfull.
The location is perfect, just five minutes walking from the square.
The rooms were very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The roof terrace was truly lovely, perfect for the breakfast or or time out with a mint tea at any time.
The dinner was by far the best meal we had in Marrakech, congratulations to the three sisters !!!
I would definitely stay here again an recommend it to anyone.

Riad Argan is an oasis of calm right in the heart of the medina. It is beautifully furhished with good sized rooms and ensuite bathrooms. Breakfast is taken on the roof top terrace where you can also sun bathe later in the day. It was nice to see that the breakfast was somewhat different every day so that you had something new to try. The service we recieved while staying at Riad Argan was so personal, like nothing we had ever experienced.
We can only highly recommend this Riad.
Françoise and her team make all the difference.

I love Marrakesh and Morocco, it's the first time I was so welcome in a Riad, the owners (Françoise & Bernard) were there offering us a nice tea with local cakes, giving us a lots of very interesting advises about the city, where to go and what to see.
You feel like visiting friends more than just rent a place.
If you have to choose between different Riads, don't any more that's the one and only..!!
Thanks again for treating us that well.

Room Tip: They are all very nice and they are exactly as they look on the pictures.

Riad Argan is in the perfect location for visiting Marrakech. It's within the medina walls but not too close to the main square that you feel it's too central. It's situated just off one of the main routes into the medina which is perfect as you get as much of the hustle and bustle as you want, it in a really peaceful location and the rooftop terrace is perfect for sitting down to breakfast, laying out in the sun or a late afternoon mint tea!

Francois and Bernard are the perfect hosts and I would recommend using their airport transfer service as we got out of the car just outside of the medina walls to a warm greeting from them and with someone to carry our bags to the road while we had a mini tour from Francois en-route to the riad. Once we'd arrived Francois offered to take us into the square and point out some key highlights such as the best food stalls to visit and she offered great tips on bargaining and what would be a fair price for all of the souvenirs you may want to pick up on your visit.

The rooms were great, each individually decorated but with a Moroccan theme, the rooms were comfortable (best few nights sleep I've had in a while) and also very clean.

The staff within the riad are also a credit to the efficiency and general pleasant atmosphere.

I would recommend the riad to couples, friends and families alike.

As a female traveller in a very different cultural environment I felt completely safe and this was in part due to Francois and her team and the location of the riad and also the advice they offered which was priceless!

If you want to try something a little different Francois can help organise a day trip to the Atlas Mountains which had its fair share of sales pitches along the way but it also offered great insight into mountain life and the beauty of morocco.

My wife and I just spent 3 perfect days at Riad Argan. The location is perfect-- a short stroll to the main square, the souks or the kasbah. Francoise, the owner could not possibly have been any more gracious or helpful... the riad itself is everything you'd want.. cosy, inviting with a well-decorated touch that makes it hard to leave ... fab breakfasts on the terrace... and be sure to have a romantic dinner there... the three sisters and Sufjan(sp?) on staff are great-- friendly and super nice...always looking to make your stay enjoyable ... all in all, I highly recommend Riad Argan!
