We stayed at Riad Les Inseparables for a week and couldn't recommend it more. Julien, the French owner and charming host, has done a wonderful job restoring this 13th century riad into a beautifully authentic and at the same time modern haven from the bustling medina outside. The stunningly beautiful yet fresh and simple decor adds to the feeling of tranquility and the classic combination of traditional style with modern touches such as air conditioning and impeccable bathroom was perfect. We felt completely relaxed and at home in the riad and Julien's hospitality was second to none. He gave us a free tour of the medina, took us to visit the tannery, booked a restaurant for us and arranged an overnight trip to the desert for us and his knowledge and passion was such that he gave us a real insight into the culture and answered any questions/queries that we had. The best meal that we had in Marrakesh was on our last night when we ate in the riad, where we enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine (another perk of the riad being the bar!) and Julien and Khadija prepared the most deliciously tender tagine for us. I highly recommend this riad if you want to experience a bit of the 'real' Marrakesh without staying slap bang in the centre of the madness of the souks, which can be overwhelming at times. And if you enjoy your holiday comforts such as air conditioning, a decent-sized pool, licensed bar and great sun lounging area to chill and read your book for a while, then look no further. One tip would be to make sure you get in touch in advance to request a personalised airport transfer where you will be brought straight to the riad door; we requested for this to be arranged and I think that otherwise it would have been quite difficult to find.
We actually got engaged in the riad so it will always hold a special place in our heart.. :-) Thank you Julien and Khadija for a great holiday!

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, overlooking the pool and it was lovely.

We booked last minute for three nights at Riad Les Insperables and found the riad very authentic, clean and comfortable. The thing that really sets it apart is the service and attention from Julianne and his staff who are really dedicated to what they do and are very good people.

We went to Marrakech for New Year’s Day and arrived on Dec. 28th, I had booked 4 rooms, for 4 adults and 4 children. The welcome was great, with Julien, the owner, presenting his riad and making the visit. We had a pleasant dinner and afterwards we were driven to our bedrooms. As none of them was communicating and due to the age of our children (11 & 7), my wife and I went to a separate room, each with one child. The nightmare started at 5 am when we were awaken, with my son, by huge waves of water falling down from the ceiling into our bathroom, we got up and quickly evacuated the room. I went to the other part of the riad to look for the owner when I bumped into my friend and learnt that, in the same time my wife and younger child had almost suffocated because of smoke that had filled their bedroom while they were sleeping. My wife had got up, realized what was happening and had evacuated the room with my second son. It was 6 am, at least the owner had arrived but we did not know yet what had happened. By investigating near my bedroom, we discovered that there had been an electrical short circuit in a closed cupboard, that had caused a fire and then set fire to many plastic elements that were in this cupboard. The smoke came from this fire and we had the chance that a water pipeline running inside the same cupboard had melted and thus switched the fire off, that was the water that came down the ceiling... We were all traumatized but at least alive and with no major injury. We could not obviously stay there any longer and I had to look for a new hotel, for 8 people. The owner did not really understand why we wanted to leave… whereas the consequences of this fire could have been dramatic as the riad was full!! Furthermore he did not even offer to reimburse the “night” we spent in his riad, nor did he offer to invite us for the Dec 31st dinner, he made us to pay for everything. At the end of the day, this experience will be a bad souvenir but it is obvious that we will never again go to this riad as we would fear that such an incident could happen again!!

All aspects of this Riad are of the highest quality. Service, furnishings, authenticity, food and location are all excellent, and Julian is a tremendous host who was happy to share his vast knowledge of Marrakech, which added massive benefit to our sightseeing within the city. I'd highly recommend this Riad to anyone looking to see the authentic side of Marrakech whilst staying in comfort.

Julien went out of his way to welcome us to his riad. He showed us around Marrakesh, allowing us to see native sites which we would not have seen otherwise. His Riad is authentic and is a perfect, peaceful place to return to after a busy day in Marrakesh. Unfortunatley we visited on a day when the weather was a bit grey but I would have loved to have seen his beautiful roof top garden on a brighter day. Thank you Julien.

This place is quite simply amazing. Having chosen it for only a couple of days at the end of a mini road-trip around Morocco, we chose it because it was very reasonable. We therefore didn't necessarily have high expectations. However, it's the perfect mix of traditional Riad, with the comforts of a more modern hotel/Riad. The building itself is, however, outdone by Julien. He has to be the nicest and most helpful host I've ever stayed with. His unofficial tour of the town was one of the highlights of our time there. Nothing was too much trouble for Julien, and he really made our stay perfect. Aside from that, the hamman, dinner on the roof terrace, pool in the courtyard and the complete quiet away from the bustle of the medina made it a place I cannot recommend enough. We'll be going again.

Room Tip: We looked at a few rooms, and they are all really nice.
