“So Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We've booked this riad for our whole family 4 nights and we had an amazing stay.
Ali, the driver welcomed us at the airport for our pickup, it would be difficult to find the first time but after it's quite easy, and dropped us off at Main Square Jeema Al Fna where we met Hasia (hope it's ok for her name), she is in charge of the riad.
We walked together with a guy taking our bags and met the owner Patrick for the first time. We exchanged a lot of e-mails with him because in several books we saw that staying in the Medina could be hard sometimes with kids, but it was just wonderful.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Thank you so much.
All children definitely want to come back asap.

Room Tip: Book the whole riad is just amazing, home away from home.

Spent 6 days in this riad and had great vacation. Nice room, nice food, very well located in the heart of the souks. Warm in summer time, about 49° celcius but AC was ok, perhaps we'll come back with friends in april or november. Jeema el fna main square was amazing, women take care about your hands, a lot of strange women are trying to draw henna for an expensive price. Definitly come back, thanks every body.

We spent with my wife 3 nights in this riad. We took the airport transfer, hard to find the first time, after it was better. We had nice double room on the roof, it was really hot, more than 40° but A/C worked well. We took very good breakfast every morning on the roof, free wifi was also provided. Assia and Youssef are wonderful staff, welcoming, smiling, nothing was too much trouble for them. Recommend to my friends.

Spending our holidays first in Europe, than in Africa we've choosen this riad because of the show "vacation-vacation" and were not disapointed, nice staff, warm welcome, pickup at the airport, every thing was done just for us as if we where at home. Thank you.

We've booked the 5 rooms of this lovely riad in exclusivity for our family and we had a great stay. We spent 4 nights there and nothing was too much for the staff. We did one day trip to the Atlas Moutains organized by the riad. Thank's for everything, hope to see you all again.

Room Tip: Private Riad is a great deal.

Beautiful and peaceful riad. The Hammam/massage was an experience not to be missed. The staff Assia and Youssef are exemplary and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thanks the owner for the hand-made map.Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We took the room on the roof, it's the largest of all and very quiet.

We're just back with a group of friends from Riad Des Epices. We saw this riad on channel 4, vacation, vacation, from kirsty and phil and never regret our choice. It's so difficult to choose one of hundred and hundred riads in Marrakech, so we had a look at previous reviews on trip, we've also choosed Spices Riad because of low prices and we had there an amazing stay. Assia, Youssef, staff at the riad, Ali the driver as well as the owners were really helpful, always smiling, making a map for us. Definitly accept pickup at the airport, first time it's difficult to find but se well located after 2 or 3 days there? Definitly recommend and come back.

Room Tip: We took the room with Tv on first floor.
