“Lovely Riad - recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Chose this Riad based on others reviews and couldn't have been more pleased. Surprised how spacious, beautiful, clean and well kept the Riad was after walking down a narrow alley to get there. Staff really friendly and helpful, what more could you want for a short break....except perhaps some fruit at breakfast :-)

Me, my husband and our friends came to Marrakesh in Feb2013 one of our friend was in Morocco but we were first time in Marrakesh so that was a big shock for us to see how people live. When we arrived to Riad L'Oiseau du Paradis, there was a staff of people welcoming us. We had only brakfast included, becouse we thought that the prices in the Riad were too high(20Euro each), so we ate in Place Jamaa El Fna. Breakfast was very good, and everything was fresh. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed with our bathrooms becouse water in the shower did not drain, but apparently it's very common in Morocco to happend. Riad is very clean and nice decorated. It was wonderful just to sit down and relax in this peacful atmosphere. The best in the Riad was the staff, especialy a man named Mouad who look after us and everything we needed was there. It was a great experience for us, and hopefully we come back again.

First holiday in Marrakech to beat the winter blues... Our choice for the riad was based on cost, location and previous complementary posted comments about the French owned, l'Oiseau du Paradis. However, how good people's feedback can be, it is somehow not that easy to know what to expect until getting there. In fact, our personal experience was even better than what we had expected. Mouad, a smart - smiley - young man manages a friendly and professional team. Mouad and his team know how to make their guests feel at home. He provides an efficient and personalised service from airport transfer to guided visits inside and outside Marrakech. He can also recommend the best places in Marrakech. L'Oiseau du Paradis is a haven of tranquility amongst the hustle and bustle of the medina. The staff cook delicious Moroccan food: the best Couscous Royal and Mouad's mouth watering beef Tagine with plum, almond and cinnamon. Finally, we treated ourselves with a highly recommended exfoliating hammam, followed by a massage and relaxation on the sunny roof terrace. Can't wait to go back...

We had stayed a few nights in another riad in the kasbah at the beginning of our 12 day trip to Morocco, whereupon we drove at an unscheduled pace to Erg Chebbi and back. We ultimately decided we wanted to come back and spend one more night in Marrakech to make the return of our rental car a little easier. We contacted the owner of the original riad but he was booked so we looked on TA and found Riad l'Oiseau du Paradis and are SO glad we did.

After a phone call to figure out how to get there, Muad (from the riad) ended up deciding we would never be able to find it or the car park where we had to put the rental car for pick-up, so he told us to stay where we were and took a taxi to come find us. He hopped in the car with us and guided us to where we needed to park the car and then led us to the riad.

The riad is lovely and the rooms were wonderful. The small courtyard is so inviting and relaxing and Muad took such great care of us. He made homemade yogurt for our breakfast that was among the best I've ever had.

The riad is a short walk to the square but once inside the doors, it truly is an oasis of peace and calm. Although I loved the initital riad we stayed at in the kasbah, f I were to return to Marrakech, I would no doubt stay at l'Oiseau du Paradis as a first choice.

The riad is beautiful with a lovely roof terrace. The breakfast (included) was of a great standard and the service was brilliant. Our room was along a small lane which was quite loud throughout the night, but it did add to the Marrakech experience! Great escape from the craziness of djemma.

My girlfriend and I arrived in the hectic marrakech to be welcomed into l'oiseau du paradis by the kindest staff you could meet.
The riad is beautiful , it's immaculately clean , the rooms are spacious and decorated beautifully.
The hotel is also in a perfect location , do not look for a hotel closer in , this hotels only a 5 minute walk from everything and away from the noise of the busy city.
I highly recommend this hotel/riad to anyone looking to stay in marrakech :)

We stayed for 4 nights at Riad L'oiseau du Paradis in April; the riad is absolutely beautiful and Kadija and Habiba looked after us wonderfully. Nothing was too much trouble. My daughter loved the sun terrace coming home with a tan. I went sightseeing which was easy due to the riad being near to many of the main sights. Overall a 5 star experience.
