“Wonderful surprise!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

My trip to Marrakech was at the beginning of June. I went there and surprised my friend who was a guest there. Linda made sure my friend did not know I was coming and her staff, Rasheed, Wadii, & Fahdillia (not sure if I spelled their names correctly) also kept the secret. Wadii collected me off the taxi and off we went. The Riad is located down small alleys but close to the Souks. It is a beautiful brightly colored place. We stayed in the Orange Room which was plenty big enough. The staff made sure we were comfortable and basically let us do our thing. When I left I was concerned for my friend as she uses a wheelchair when she needs to but Wadii whisked her off each day for tours, shopping and meals. Thank you all for taking good care of her! Breakfast was served each day and was delicious! I am so glad that she chose your Riad to stay in!

Room Tip: This isn't a room tip but be careful of the "monkey" guys. They will take your money...

Thank you to all at Riad Linda who made our trip to Marrakech such a great experience. We stayed in The Douiria which was very spacious and very clean and comfortable.
From making the booking with Linda, who offered such good advice and tips, from arriving to Jemaa el fna to be met with the very helpful Wadeer, meeting Racheed , who assisted with any request we had, and Fatila who cooked a lovely breakfast every morning and who makes a mean lemon chicken! Not really any more we could have asked for.
We would have no hesitation to recommending this delightful, homely Riad!

Room Tip: Would recommend the Douiria - well worth the little extra

Easy to find - right in the heart of the Medina - staying at the fabulous Riad Linda gives you a great base to explore the city.
It was 48 degrees C when we stayed - the Air Con in our room was brilliant!
Staff were great - very helpful - and provided a lovely breakfast.
A real flavour of Morocco - I've got no hesitation in recommending this little hidden gem to you.

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this beautiful riad. Only a few minutes walk away from the action, but such peace & quiet here. the sun was shining & all the staff made us feel so welcome & were always helpful & polite with a great sense of humour! The rooms were very clean, comfortable & most importantly cool. The air conditioning here works a treat, very important when you visit here during the summer months. we didn't do very much, lots of lounging about & relaxing & enjoying the cool terrace in the evenings. - a wee gem! Thank you all at Riad Linda

This was my first trip to marrakech & I was feeling a bit nervous & did not know what to expect. Rachid, wadii & fadila could not have been kinder or more welcoming. they made me a very refreshing glass of mint tea & i was made to feel very welcome. The riad is in a small derb just a few minutes walk away from the souks & the location is ideal. I could not believe how peaceful it was when I turned into the little derb. It was so lovely to be woken by bird song each morning. I also highly recommend the breakfasts on the lovely terrace each morning. The staff were alwys smiling & always made sure that iIwas happy & comfortable. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Blue Room on the first floor which was light, airy & cool.

Riad Linda is a sanctuary amid the chaos of Marrakesh. Linda is a delightful host and her personality is reflected in the calm atmosphere of her riad, tucked away in a quiet corner just a few minutes walk from the main square. The house is in an ideal location and is excellent value for money. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, we stayed in the Douria Suite which is very spacious. Rachid and staff were very pleasant and helpful and a resident wee bird fills the atrium with his beautiful songs. I was unwell during our visit and was very fortunate to have been staying in such a comfortable and welcoming house. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at Riad Linda for four nights at the beginning of May. It is an excellent place to stay, right in the centre of Marrakesh. You will not find a better location for exploring the town. The main square is a few minutes walk away, as are the souks and other cultural attractions.

The Riad itself is also superb. Tucked away down a small derb (side street) it is a wonderful place to retreat to after the intensity of Marrakesh.

The accommodation is very clean and tidy. We had new towels and bed linen every day. Furthermore, Fasila (the chef) also folded our clothes for us. The rooms are spacious, cool and clean - we had the orange room. Breakfast was really nice on the terrace in the morning sun with fresh coffee, juice and a selection of breads/omelettes.

The staff are lovely; very welcoming and helpful. The manager Rachid gave us lots of useful advice on how best to enjoy our stay - making us aware of what is the right price to pay for something (e.g. taxis/tours/hammams etc). My friend had mentioned how much he liked the honey at breakfast... on our last day Rachid presented him with a whole jar as a gift. A small gesture but so kind and thoughtful - made us feel like we had genuinely been "guests" as well as just customers.

We HIGHLY recommend this Riad. Given the low price, it is excellent value for money. Would stay there again.
