“fantastic oasis in a city of hustle and bustle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Just returned from a week at the Riad Linda and can recommend that anyone visiting Marrakech,whether for the first time or not could not find a friendlier,calm oasis as Riad Linda.
The Riad was kept spotlessly clean by Fidella who, although didnt speak english was aways smiley and helpful to us.Thanks to Wadeer who fetched for us anything we were in need of and we enjoyed our mornng chats with Rachid who spoke perfect english.
The sun roof with loungers and tented area with cushions was welcome after a good morning of bustling souks.You were able to unwind and rest before the evenings eents in the main square.
When we arrived we were slightly cautious about getting lost but thanks to the little map suplied by LInda and once with help froma local,we were easily able find our way down the alleys tothe Riad which was perfectly situated within a fw minutes walk of the main souks, ideal if youlove to shop and savour the atmosphere. We found plenty of restaurants within a couple of minutes in the square.
Thanks also to Habib who was our driver from the airport.he really went out of his way to look after us and he also took us to the Atlas mountains for the day and we were able to choose exactly how much we wanted to do or not to do. He was great,please thank him from us both.
All in all the holiday was an experience not to forget and hope to be back to Marrakech in the future.

Room Tip: we had orange room as I think only room with single beds of which there were three.Large comfortabl...

My girlfriend and I had a four night stay in the Douria Suite, which was very clean, spacious and well appointed. The Riad is well located - a 5 minute walk from the main square and souks etc - and the staff are very polite and attentive. Breakfast was served whenever we wanted it and set us up well for the day ahead. The roof terrace was a great place to relax in the evening - we sat out with some wine and watched the sunset most evenings before heading into the Medina for our evening meal. Would definitely stay again if we make a return visit to Marrakech!

Stayed as a couple in the Douria Suite at the end of Sep 2012. Nothing negative to report.

Riad Linda was a fantastic base for our exploration of Marrakech; with easy access to the Medina and the numerous fantastic restaurants and sites. The riad had a lovely sunny terrace with a shaded bedouin area which was lovely for relaxing after a hectic morning in the souks, palaces and gardens.

Breakfast was ample and the staff were always on hand should you need any help with anything or a cup of mint tea! Their local knowledge was a great help also.

My partner, having never visited Marrakech, was apprehensive about personal safety etc. However, having visited, he was amazed at how safe the city really is and how friendly the locals are.

Restaurant Recommendations: Le Tobsil is a must, although difficult to find! Would also recommend Kosybar for rooftop sunset drinks and Cafe Arabe

Must also visit the spa "Les Bains de Marrakech"

Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful little riad. Literally only a few minutes away from the square it is very peaceful & tranquil. It was lovely to wake up to bird song ,then enjoy a substantial breakfast on the terrace. The rooms were very clean & the beds comfortable. I slept like a log. Marrakech is very 'full on' & it was lovely to come back here & chill. Very kind staff.

Room Tip: the rooms on the first floor are light & comfortable.

Riad Linda is a wee gem, situated right at the heart of the action in Marrakech's magic medina (mind the motorbikes! and cats!). Linda and the friendly staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming, arranging transport from the train station and a delicious meal on arrival. The place is clean and new and the terrace is definitely the highlight.

We felt really at home in this beautiful riad. The location is very central -only few minutes walk from Djemma El Fna Square & great for shopping but it is also very peaceful & tranquil. this was ideal for afternoons sunning ourselves on the terrace. Rachid the manager & all the staff were alwasys smiling & made us feel very relaxed & welcome. The rooms were spotless & comfortable. The whole riad is kept very clean. Breakfasts on the terrace were substantial & all home made. A lovely way to start the day. A great find & good value for money. It was a great way to experience our first visit to mMrrakech.

Room Tip: All the rooms on the first floor are light & airy.
