“Great people and pleasant place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We passed by this Riad by accident and ended up to stay here for a whole week. The place was clean and well managed by nice people. We felt very much like home. The area was great as it was close to the big square with thousands of people but the building itself was located in an incredibly quiet street. Rooftop was our favorite place to stay. We almost ate in the raid every night. Food was good with reasonable price.

We did a lot of seeking for a moderately priced riad with great Moroccan style. Happily, Riad Almoulouk was as good as it was billed.

The courtyard is beautiful. Wonderfully tiled, relaxing furniture, plentiful mint tea... The bedrooms in particular are a delight. We chose Suite Jasmin and it was a stunner. From its sunken living space, to the exposed brick work and original ceiling, to the horseshoe wall arch, and the brass fittings - the room was wonderful. We loved being in that space and made each return to the riad very satisfying. We took a look at the some of the other rooms too and found them to be just as good looking as pictured on the website.

The breakfast was relatively standard, but the staff are very friendly and helpful. A great stay in a very romantic spot!

Room Tip: Suite Jasmin without a doubt.

This Riad, we found by chance, was the nicest place we have been to in Marrakesh. What a lovely warm atmosphere thanks to Nadja and the other women taking care about the guests! Thank you for everything! The rooms are large and beautiful decorated. Very clean and rose leaves make you feel as a very special guest of this house. The breakfast with home made crepes and joghurt (just deliciouse), served on the roof terrasse was relaxing and a great start for the morning. At night the whole house is decorated with candles and lamps. Only disadvantage is the coverage of the patio because the "natural" Air condition is cut of, but is replaced by air condition in every room (understandable because the patio is lovely decorated with wonderful furniture that would break under rain). It is located 5 minutes away from Djemna el Fnaa in the heart of medina in a calm and clean little street. The stuff is very helpful and makes everything possible (even a diet dinner not announced before!).

Riad Almoulouk is an excellent, beautiful Riad located conveniently in the Medina, just 2 minutes walk from the main square. We stayed in the Riad for 4 nights in total and in 2 different rooms. Both rooms are nice and comfortable. Beds are big and clean, rooms are spacious, there is hot water for bath and shower, and also free fast internet in the Riad. You can expect European standard from this riad. Nice deco, good quality towels, big beds.

The riad staff are very friendly and honest. Fast email replies, and breakfast is great! They are always smiling. And we always get a nice pot of sweet mint tea when we return to the riad after a day of shopping. For us, there are several reasons why we will for sure return to the riad if we visit Marrakech again.

One, we had a very personal and special welcome by the riad when we arrived. As we were on our honeymoon, they prepared a lovely cake, snacks and moroccan wedding drinks for us as a surprise. Our bed was decorated with rose petals in a heart shape, very romantic and certainly a good start for our honeymoon.

Two, we had problems with sending our moroccan lamps at the post (either it was a public holiday, or the parcel service for the day has ended by 4pm, or the Post ran out of big boxes to put our lamps) and the riad helped us with sending the lamps as we had to urgently rush to the airport after our last attempt to post. We paid a bit extra for the trip to the Post and the postage, and was glad that we really received the lamps within 2 weeks (you never know what happens at the Moroccan Post).

Three, we love the tea and breakfast, they have a good cook there.

Four, we trust them with our things. We left our luggage and the lamps we bought at the riad and left for 5 days to the desert. When we came back, our room was prepared with the luggage already brought there. Everything is still in the bag, all untouched.

Five, good quality rooms and fast wireless internet. Peaceful Riad for us to relax.

Overall, I highly recommend Riad Almoulouk to anyone staying in Marrakech. Small riad, very moroccan style, very personal. The riad is located in a small lane in the Medina and is not extremely accessible by car although it is possible. We tried it while on airport transfer. It's amazing how the driver can maneuver through the small lanes. A great experience.

We have just returned from a family trip to Morocco and a highlight was certainly our stay at the Riad Almoulouk. We were two families, each with two young children, and we spent five nights initially at the Riad. Allal, the wonderfully efficient and friendly manager, met us at the airport and sped alongside the taxi by motorbike, helping us weave our way through the medina to the rather unpromising entrance to the riad. However as soon as the door opened, we were whisked away from the hustle and bustle of the medina and into, quite literally, an oasis of tranquility.

The photographs only hint at how beautiful the courtyard and bedrooms are, The level of workmanship is superb and both our room and the one of our friends were beautiful. I never knew how many different types of pancakes there are and we sampled them all during our breakfasts, even trying our hand at cooking some of them under Soumia's laughing guidance. Soumia is a superb chef and she and Aicha cooked up a storm, again and again. We did try going out to dinner one night, while they babysat for us, but soon decided that we would much rather be eating sublime home cooked food on 'our' roof terrace. Nothing was too much trouble for Allal, Soumia and Aicha, and the children adored them as much as we did.

The location was perfect for exploring the medina and the market square, and it was always lovely to be welcomed back at the riad with copious quantities of mint tea and biscuits.

We were sad to say our goodbyes and head to the mountains and then on to Essaouira. However, unfortunately while in the mountains our daughter was taken ill and after a few days we decided to go back to the Riad for a night en route to the sea so we could see a doctor and enjoy a stolen day back in Marrakech. Allal was great, and within an hour of arriving back he was accompanying us to the doctor while our friends were being fed lunch at the riad! It really felt like coming home.

A heartfelt thankyou to Allal, Soumia and Aicha for a magical stay at the Riad Almoulouk.

We spent five nights at the Riad Almoulouk, a haven of calm and beauty, conveniently located less than 5 minutes walking distance from the lively Djemaa el Fna. It is exquisitely decorated, the rooms are spacious, luxurious and comfortable. The staff, was charming and warm and made us feel very much at home. Soumia's heavenly breakfasts on the rooftop overlooking the medina were a wonderful way to start the day. She even introduced us to the art of making Moroccan pancakes. Allal, the manager, was charming and helpful in every way, with helpful tips and arranging a day trip to the Eureka Valley
We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this Riad. Thank you Allal, Soumia and Aicha for making it such a success!
