“Great location with lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011 via mobile

Have just got back from a lovely 4 day stay in Marrakech, the perfect amount of time for us. The rhiad is down some of the many alleyways Marrakech has but it's easy enough to find your way to the square, and most importantly back! We had a couple of meals here and they were definitely the best. The breakfast was lovely as well and Mostaphe gives lovely service, always with a smile, which makes a welcome change from the wordless, couldn't care less service elsewhere. We saw Samira every evening who was there to check that everything was okay, and that allguests were happy
Just one thing, the room we had looked different to the pictures and I couldn't see the hot-tub so think it may have been taken out during the refurb. There was also no television in our room, which was certainly not a problem. The friendliness of the staff here made our stay a wonderful one, and we would very happily return

Just back from a whole week in Marrakech with a friend of mine.
We stayed here for 7 nights and were looked after very well.
Eventhough the riad was not easy to find on the first day, we got to know the alleys pretty well after a day or 2.
Thanks a lot to everyone at Riad Reves d'Orient for making our stay one to remember!
Special thanks to Samira, Mostapha, Mona, Fatima and everyone else we met during these 7 days, for their help, their hospitality, their kindness,...
A la prochaine inchallah!

Amazingly tranquil when so close to the main sites in the heart of the Medina. Staff lovely, stayed 3 nights, had dinner on 2 of those, and 1 night in the main square, breakfast very nice. Morrocan tea in the afternoon on the roof terrace was lovely, cooled down in the jacuzzi a few of the days as wasn't used to the hot midday sun. I advise you to book direct with emailing via Riad's own website and appreciated taxi arranged for us on arrival. Would definitely recommend to friend. Would probably return with friends! As others have said made to feel welcome and at home.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of September. Prior to arrival Samira had organised for a driver to collect us from the airport and drive us to the medina (15Eu - a little pricier than a local taxi but very convenient). The Riad is a little tricky to find for those not familiar with the medina and is only accessible on foot so a porter met our car and escorted us to the door. On entry we were struck immediately by the tranquility of the Riad. We had the Jade suite which has a king size bed, sofa and ensuite shower room. The decor was immaculate and the high ceilings meant that the room stayed cool for quite a while after switching off the self-controlled air conditioning. There is a beautiful roof terrace with both a shaded area and sunbeds. We breakfasted here every day (at whichever time we chose) with a combination of crepes, local cakes, excellent eggs and jams. We were even offered English tea (but you have to ask specifically if you would like your milk cold). It was so relaxing on the roof that on some days we struggled to leave it at all! Dinner could also be taken up on the roof with the option of local wine or beer. Samira is multilingual and speaks excellent English, the other staff speak a varying amount of English (ranging to none) but most speak good French.
On the occasions we did decide to leave, the Riad is a short 5-10 min walk from the Place Jemaa el fna so is well positioned.
The rooms are usually 89Eu for a room or 139Eu per night for a suite. We were lucky with our timing as there was a special offer on which meant we paid only 69Eu per night which was amazing value. It is definitely worth booking directly with the Riad.
Overall the Riad was everything we had hoped it would be and all of the staff were fantastic. we will definitely stay here again if we return to Marrakech.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are immaculate and face the inner courtyard. If you are a light sleeper then first...

We stayed for just one night here, but left as friends, determined to return. Samira's wonderfully redecorated Riad is very clean, comfy and central, with a peaceful terrace for meals and relaxing. She is a super hostess, nothing was too much trouble and she arranged everything we needed to pack a lot into a short stay. Great place from which to enjoy the city.

Apparently the term "riad" derived from the Arabic term for "paradise". The idea being that when you passed through a nondescript door in the wall of a narrow passage in a busy city you would encounter paradise inside a riad. Indeed this was our initial impression of Riad Reves D'Orient two weeks ago on our arrival in Marrakech. The interior is exotic yet appointed with contemporary features- it was very recently renovated. It is amazingly quiet inside. The staff are gracious and helpful. Fatima offered to cook us dinner, giving us a choice of 4 or 5 dishes of four courses to be cooked fresh at any time. My wife and I dined alone and sumptuously on the rooftop terrace overlooking the city with a delicious bottle of Moroccan wine after a busy tour of the medina. We could have stayed a week easily.

Room Tip: All face a balcony over the central courtyard

We stayed here 3 nights and I really wish it could have been 3 weeks. This riad is located within the medina, but off some of the more narrow streets/walkways, away from the noise. Don't be dissuaded by the seemingly desolate alleyway walk - it is TOTALLY SAFE, as many locals with families live in this area. We even walked late at night with absolutely no problem. The location away from all the hoopla of the shopping area makes for a GREAT nights sleep. Samira, one of the owners, is so sweet and gracious, not to mention beautiful. She and the staff are very accommodating and always greet their guests with a smile. This beautifully decorated & designed riad is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but to all the senses - it always smelled so divine in there, and there was often soothing moroccan music playing in the background. There is certainly more of a focus on making guests feel at home - much more so than any of the other riads I stayed at. I recommend having dinner there if you can, as the food is EXCELLENT; I loved the chicken tagine, but my husband swears the lamb was the best he's ever had. Also, if you are looking to celebrate a birthday or special occasion, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BOOK. Samira and one of her sisters are also belly dancers and put on a fantastic show you'll never forget! I cannot rave about this place enough - the attention to detail is impeccable. There's internet, AC, laundry service, and a rooftop jacuzzi/ patio. I think they also offer massage,as I noticed what looked like massage tables set up in another room. I LOVED this riad - when I return to Marrakech, I will undoubtedly return either here or to her newest riad, Riad Zehar, which was also amazingly beautiful. We had dinner at Zehar, and like Reves D'orient, the staff works exceptionally hard to make you feel like royalty.
