“Great for a group holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Very pleasant, clean Riad close to the main square with friendly and helpful staff. The size and layout was great for our party of 15 friends. I would have liked wifi in all areas, and soap in the bathrooms would have been useful, but otherwise a very decent, well located, little guest house.

Sorry, rooms are really smaller then I thougth! And the atmosphere is really cheaper then the majestic pictures you may see. No one really helps you there, because there's no one than the cleaning lady in the morning. No way to lock the room door, so good luck. The balcony is small and thirty and the forniture is old and not clean. We have been in Marocco before, you can really do better then this. No quality for the money we paid.

Thank you very leaving us a review. We always welcome all comments from our guests in order to provide the very best level of customer service. I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay with us. We do not market ourselves as a 5 star luxury riad. What we do pride ourselves in is providing a clean, friendly guest house in a great location offering exceptional value for money!

All our photos are an accuarate reflection of what is there. Many guests have told me that the riad was 'just like in your pictures'!

All of our rooms are lockable & there is 24 hour security on site as well as a safe for guests' valuables.

I was rather suprised that you found your room to be on the small side. You stayed in our Douira Suite which previous guests have described as 'huge'.

Your room was cleaned every day & your towels were changed daily. Given how many other guests have commented on our high standard of cleanlinesss I'm rather suprised by your remarks!

Our manager Rachid was there to greet you & provided you with a lot of help & information throughout your stay with us. Wadeer our concierge was also on hand to help look after you. Fadila is our lovely cook & housekeeper & is much more than a 'cleaning lady!

Our staff are regularly highly praised by guests for the level of service that they provide & how nothing is too much trouble for them.

As we have only been open since 2110 I'm not very sure how our furniture can be described as 'old'. We constantly upgrade & replace any items as necessary.

I think this reviewer was expecting 5 star hotel treatment for 3 star prices. We have had many happy & contented guests stay with us over the years & who return.

We all continually strive to ensure that our guests are comfortable, well looked after & that their stay with us is a wonderful & memorable experience.

I booked out the whole riad for my 40th birthday celebration for 15 people. From the moment I made contrast with Linda she was amazingly helpful, always responded back promptly and was a joy to deal with.

On arrival we just fell in love with the place. The roof terrace especially was just a great place for us to hang out. The staff were so helpful and friendly and went out of their way. They even bought me a huge bunch of flowers for my birthday :-)

The rooms were really nice especially the main suite which was huge.

The breakfasts were tasty.

The location is great as only a couple of mins walk to the action and probably 5 mins to the medina.

But the absolute highlight was my birthday party. I ordered a traditional Moroccan feast cooked at the riad and it was delicious. I had also booked a band and they were just fantastic really made the atmosphere we were all dancing and having the best time. Also a belly dancer who was also great.

I would without a doubt recommend the riad for a big group celebration it exceeded our celebrations and was just fantastic. It was one of the best holidays ever and surprisingly great value.

Room Tip: The suite is lovely :-)

This is a very good riad if you would like somewhere quiet but only 3 minutes walk from the main square. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff extremely helpful. The Wifi was a little weak in the bedroom - but I didn't really want to work on holiday anyway!
The riad has a good mix of private and public spaces and I would happily stay there again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Douria Suite and enjoyed having the extra space....

One of the most challenging things for me on a short break arriving in a new country is to be able to relax and stop worrying. Such was the organisation and welcome at Riad Linda that I really couldn't find anything to worry about. The eponymous Linda gave us hugely helpful advice by email before we set out; we were met by their regular driver; and then greeted by Rachid and Lina when we arrived late in the evening at their home. A perfect start, and our 5 day stay continued in exactly that theme throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for Rachid who advised us on every aspect of Moroccan life; and Linda who advised us on how much we should really pay for things! Armed with such knowledge we could really enjoy ourselves and did. We threw ourselves into the souks, museums and palaces, soaking up the atmosphere and history. The riad is perfectly situated for all this, never more than a few minutes walk away from anywhere. We returned every day and enjoyed the delight of relaxing in the sun on the roof top terrace, a silence broken only by the atmospheric sound of the mosques calling the faithful to prayer. Something that seemed entirely in keeping with the moment. We chose to eat every night in el Fnaa and enjoyed the enthusiastic banter of the salesmen at every tent! We took a day trip out and had a short sharp burst of exercise with a guided climb up to a waterfall in the low Atlas, but truth is, to see the real Morocco as opposed to the incessant tourist traps, you have to go further afield than a single day trip. Next time, and there will be a next time, we will take a two or three day trip into the desert. Will we return? Definitely!

This was my first time visiting Marrakech. I stayed at the Riad Linda for three nights, which is in an excellent position in a quiet street a five-minute walk from the main square of Djemma Al Fna. The Riad Linda was brilliant for me because it was the perfect base from which to explore Marrakech during the day, and to get some good sleep at night. Also, the staff were very accommodating - sorting out airport transfers for me, as well as a guide to take me round Marrakech one day, and a driver to take me into the foothills of the Atlas mountains (Ourika valley) the next. Oh - and they got a couple of beers in for me to drink on the terrace when I asked! Spot on. I had a great time, and will stay again. Thank you very much Linda, Rachid, and Wadir.

Room Tip: If you are a very light sleeper, it might be best to try and get a room on the first floor.

We arrived in marrakesh on new years eve and Linda had organised a taxi to meet us at the airport and take us to to main square where we were met by the concierge and taken to the Riad. it is situated in an alley which is typical of the medina, which although narrow seemed to be safe. The entrance to the riad opened into a a beautiful morrocan guest house and we were welcomed with tea or coffee.Our room was spacious and charming and the breakfast consisted of a delicous pancake and omlette. It is only a short walk to the square where all the stalls, entertainment and restaurants are. Unfortunately we could only be accomodated for one night as the riad was fully booked for the rest of the week otherwise we would have stayed there longer.
