“Fifty-fifty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Very nice and comfortable rooms, with different decoration for each one, but... air-conditioning and WiFi are both weak. Only acceptable connection in reception: there are no signal on the rooms or on the terraces, so if you need to check your mail you must go downstairs.

I stayed at Riad Assalam for over a week and I can whole-heatedly recommend this riad to anyone without hesitation. The staff were friendly, helpful and engaging and the rooms were clean, comfortable and stylish. It was a wonderful place to relax after the bustle of the town and I felt entirely at home there. I will definitely return to Riad Assalam if I ever find myself in Marrakech again.

This is a very good Riad and is in a very good position. The owner and his staff are lovely and will help you if you need it. Value for money is excellent and the roof terrace is well kept and a wonderful addition. Wifi and breakfast could both be stronger.

This riad exceeded all expectations. The room was beautiful and the open terrace overlooked the city, the walls of the Baddi palace and a row of storks on their nests. It was near enough to walk to the main square in ten mins but far enough away from the central madness and the very touristy hotels nearer the centre. The staff were very helpful (best for you if you do speak French). A tip to find it is that its location is just through the gate where the Baddi palace and the first alley way on the left (if the palace is behind you) and then first right and it is on your right. One other tip is to bring earplugs because sound tends to travel upwards from the central courtyards of the riad and also the early morning call to prayer will wake you earlier than you may want otherwise. We had a really fantastic stay.

we had good holidays in Marrakech Riad was not bad , despite the cockroaches in the room, the price of the room was a bit expensive compared to the quality of Riad , staff was frindly, even if they do not speak well English, it is necessary to add a Panel to find the Riad because the adress was difficult to find .
Good luck !

Stayed in this Riad on our way back from a tour of Morocco(by hired car). The Riad is very beautiful and very peaceful in an easy to reach area near to Palais el Badhi. It is a very short walk from the main Square and no problems at all getting back to the Riad at night. It is a very peaceful and quiet area where you sleep so well.

We had booked one room which Said upgraded for us at the same price as he considered it too small for two people. Said also picked us up at the airport. He is a really friendly guy who speaks English and French so no problems. Catherine, the owner arrived on our last day. She is also a really friendly woman. The staff looked after us really well.

The Riad is kept very clean. The cockroaches in Marrakech are normal even in a five star hotel, but in this Riad, we didn't even see one.

Breakfast is served in the dining room and time after 8 in the morning. If you need to have breakfast earler as you have a flight or are leaving on a tour, no problem, you only have to tell them and they will organise everything for you.

Would reccomend this Riad to everyone as it is very quiet, good area of Marrakech. Wouldn't agree as suggested by another person here that the road to reach it is "Shady". It is one of the quietest and safest roads which I saw in the whole of Morocco.

Thanks again to Siad and the rest of the staff for a wonderful time.
