“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two weeks a year ago. It was great value for money. Our room was nice, comfy bed and the air-con was great. Mohammed was very helpful and helped us booking excursions at a reasonable price and cooked us both food when I was ill. Breakfast was very good and consisted of coffee, juice, croisants and savoury bread. The room was cleaned every day to a good standard and the airport transfer was spot on also. Mohammed also provided useful information about how much is reasonable to pay for things in the souks (useful for bartering)

Riad Awinati was brilliant - Joelle, the owner, made sure we were comfortable, helped us navigate Marrakech and contacted our next riad by phone to make sure we had directions. The dinner we had at the riad was really great and breakfast was always fab. Highly recommended.

The Riad Awinati impressive presents a very successful combination of oriental ambience with oriental hospitality. The tasteful decor of the rooms offers everything makes it a pleasant stay: comfortable bed, a reasonable sanitary and air conditioning. Within the riad is perfectly shielded from external noise of the street.

The hospitality of the house by Madam Fathia completes the whole from impressive. Their culinary skills conjure up dishes on the table that should be enjoyed absolutely.

The breakfast alone is legendary: bread, croissants, homemade cakes, pancakes and yogurt, cream cheese, jam, honey, fruit salad, eggs (if desired), coffee, tea, juice and almost everything what the guest wants.

During our time there, Jaques was responsible for the logistics of the hotel and cared for us very friendly. In addition, he offered himself as guide and city guide. Through its local knowledge and charming way we may make some memorable trips Marrakech.

The spatial position of the Riad's is perfect, right in the Kasbha one is always confronted with normal life and to other sites is not far (either on foot or by a kalesh).

Highly recommended!

Booked this riad because the price was reasonable for a solo traveler and was pleasantly surprised because it is really great value for your money. The staff was very polite and helpful, breakfast was great, loved the fried egg every morning. I stayed in the Turquoise room, it was very basic , nothing fancy but very comfortable, the shower head needs to be replaced but I was able to take a hot shower every morning. I liked that the riad is in the Kasbah, it was only a 15-20 walk to the main square but it felt like real life in the neighborhood and not just stuff purely for tourists. I passed the same shops and people everyday and became friendly with a few.

My wife and I thought this riad was pretty amazing. The workers that included Hyatt and Yassin were amazing. I think without them the experience would have been dull. They were quick to solve issues and spoke good clear english. I would highly recommend this riad.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear fine.

My boyfriend and I spent 3 lovely nights, located in the heart of the Kasbah with all the charachter and life of Marrakech. Once you get to know the route its a good 15 minutes walk but well worth the experience, you get to see the really side of Marrakech. The owner helped us with Taxi transfers etc and was a lovely lady who also served a very nice breakfast up on the terrace.

We stay for 3 nights in this riad, and its was very good.
Good breakfast and a very kindly hostess Nema.
Every day we had clean towels.
The loudness of the street was not in the riad.
