“Peace amidst the chaos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Situated next to the Jewish cemetery and a good 15 minutes from the main square jemaa el fna, this Riad is a lovely place to stay. The staff were attentive and eager to please. My wife and I stayed for 5 nights over Christmas. The room, (suite) we had was number 7 on the first floor, a large spacious room with a separate seating area and access to a shared balcony over looking the plunge pool, the room and the Riad are showing signs of wear and tear, a bit shabby in places. We only ate in one evening, it wasn't a massive culinary delight but adequate never the less. Breakfast was the same every morning, mixed fruit salad, yogurt and a selection of breads, all OK but quite limited especially as we were there for 5 days. The terrace was a pleasant place to sit and soak up the winter sun. The route to and from the Riad is rather tortuous and not for the faint hearted at night, not that you are in any danger from the locals, far from it but the pavements or lack of and the uneven roads are a death trap, sadly my wife fell foul of the uneven roads and broke her ankle. The staff at the Riad were superb and one of them went with us to the hospital and stayed with us all the time, then they sent someone out to the chemist for the necessary drugs she was prescribed. One last thing unless you're used to a noisy environment , ear plugs will be a necessity to get to sleep as outside the Riad chaos ensues.

Room Tip: room 7 was nice

Stayed two nights with my familiy (2 kids) 22, 23/12... the riad is near to jemee el fna approx 15min walk through the souk. Nothing to c fm outside d hotel but once ur inside then u will realize ur in heaven - total peace, beautiful decoration n architecture, quick check in wit the best mint tea wit biscuits. Our room was absolutely stunning n amazed to c such a well design room. Very clean, wifi, hot water...cannot fault anything. Staff very caring n helpful...my son also watched a movie in their small/mini cinema hall...view fm terrace nothing much. Didnt hv a meal in d riad as whn ur in marrakech thn best is to eat outside to enjoy wit a busy square. Breakfast is good. Very safe while walking to n fro fm hotel...the best Riad n will definately recommend!

We were the only people here - myself, spouse, daughter - during our one night stay in early June 2012. There was confusion about our "plan" it was to include dinner that night and breakfast the following morning. We had to insist they make a call to our private tour operator to straighten it out.

The facility is nice enough - new, clean and basically comfortable. It is located on the edge of the medina and across the road from a huge cemetary. The food is only average and it was not some place we'd return to or recommend. Reservations were made by our tour company.

Lovely Riad , great service and staff. Very close to the central square , a ten minute walk. A 15 minute taxi ride to the new town . If you want to be in the heart of the real life of the city then this is for you . Not the prettiest of surroundings when you step outside BUT gives you a good insight into that section of Marrakech .

We found Ksar Anika an extremely friendly and lovely hotel. We were traveling with friends and had rooms that met on a balcony so at night could sit there before we had dinner. We arrived late on our first night and they had dinner organized and it was yummy. There was nothing the staff couldn't do they went out of their way with organizing trips,drivers whatever we needed. We will definitely be going back we felt like it was home Thankyou Ksar Anika

We are a party of four traveling through Spain, Portugal and morocco for 5 weeks. We found this to be one of the best accomodation experiences. We arrived one hour late because of flight delay and they had someone at airport waiting to pick us up. As soon as we walked in the door of the riad we were treated like family, dinner was organized which was beautiful. The assistant manager organized a day tour to atlas mountains, walking tour and all our connections to eassouria and back, nothing was a trouble. Our rooms were spacious and beautiful decor. All the staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast delicious. The pool, rooftop were fantastic. If we are ever in morocco again I would not stay anywhere else, we were recommended by friends who had stayed here and we were not disappointed. Thanks to all staff at Riad for making our stay in Marrakech a highlight of our trip.
