“I didn't want to leave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

Thank god I found this place! I loved it! The minute I walked in, I got a great vibe. After a bit of friendly banter/bargaining they gave us a discount on the room rate so we could afford to stay there on our travellers budget (hence the 5 star Value rating otherwise it's probably a 4 star Value rating). So we got our bags and moved in. The room was clean, large and well furnished. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was also big and clean, but the shower head kinda sucked. The breakfast was the best breakfast I had in my 1 month in Morocco. Homemade crepes, bread, jam, butter, egg, fresh squeezed orange juice and a WHOLE carafe of tasty coffee! They have wifi. At the time we were there they were changing the router so you could get wifi in the rooms instead of only in the downstairs lounge. Communication was not a problem as Yasine, their incredibly nice main employee, speaks English and can help you with everything. As with the rest of Morocco, speaking French makes things 100x easier as the cleaning lady and even one of the owners didn't speak English, but I never felt any rudeness while staying here as opposed to almost every other place I stayed. So all in all I really have nothing bad to say about this place. There's a first time for everything :)

Room Tip: room 4 had a window in the bathroom

We stayed in this nice Riad for 4 nights. It is less than 5 min walking from the place Jeema El Fna and from here you can walk everywhere in Marrakech.
The Riad is really nice, there is a beautiful terrace where you can have breakfast and the rooms are all quite nice. We were in the smallest one at the ground floor but was quite good, there are no relevant differences among all the rooms but in some of them there is also air conditioning (which you don't need in February).
The price are not really so cheap but before coming here we visited other 5 Riads and this was the best quality/price ratio.
The room was enough cleaned but not really perfect.
The staff was really friendly...the lady who cooks is fantastic and you could discover it at breakfast!

Of three Marrakesh raids where we stayed on this trip, this one was the exception-awful. It was empty when we arrived, and we quickly understood why. We had to ask for sheets for the bed, because under the dusty coverlet there were none. Those that were brought in did not match.

There was a thin pall of dirt over the rugs, surfaces and everything in our "suite". The showergel and shampoo were contained in glass tubes topped up with miscellaneous industrial gels which we saw later on sale in recylced water bottles down the soukh. . They were scentless, these gels, probably a blessing in this case. The brass taps and brass hand basin, once no doubt a glittering part of the riad "experience", had accumulated verdigris which reminded me of the reasons why we tend to chrome plate our sanitary brassware back in the UK. The towel rail had some time before snapped off its brackets, leaving two sharp ragged edged brackets projecting from the wall at hip height.

We asked the lad at reception if we could have breakfast. or at least a coffee for 6.30 am the following morning as we were setting off at 7 to join a tour to Ouzarzate, a not unusual request. This was not possible, he gestured, because no one would be there until 8am. Indeed, would we please give him all the money (50 euros) that evening and let ourselves out in the morning. So much for the service.

When seeking a riad, be aware that the wonderful photos were often taken in the heyday of the establishment before the owners moved on, leaving the place in the hands of an inexperienced relative who has instructions to collect the money, guard the entrance, and shrug nicely.

Andrea E, Owner at Riad azalia, responded to this review, October 13, 2011
My name is Andrea, recently my husband Adil and I have taken over the lease of Riad Azalia. Yes, indeed the Riad was tired and in need of some loving attention. So we spent the month of August 2011 repainting and updating the whole Riad including all the rooms. We hope to update the photos on trip advisor in the next 2 weeks. The response from our clients so far has been very positive we hope any potential new clients will like it too. We would love to meet you,

Andrea, Adil and staff.
