“Magic in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

My wife, two daughters and I had a truly wonderful stay at Riad Anjar. Nour-eddine, the manager, provided outstanding attention and service throughout our stay. He and the owner Zahra were very helpful in making arrangements for us, from a car to pick us up in Casablanca when our flight arrived before dawn, to our guide in Marrakech and for a day trip to the High Atlas.

When we arrived from that very early morning landing in Casablanca, Nour-eddine offered us a breakfast that immediately restored us. He then showed us the basics of the city and we never had any trouble getting around the city and back to the hotel. The breakfasts during our four night stay were consistently delicious (and lovely when served on the rooftop terrace) as were the dinners at the Riad, which were superb and very generous in portion. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and well-appointed, with wi-fi that functioned perfectly.

Nour-eddine and Zahra were both incredibly warm and gracious hosts and made our stay truly memorable.

I would add that Riad Anjar has a terrific location quite near the Djemma el Fna, but at the same time offering a true relaxing respite from the incredible energy of the city. I would recommend this Riad to anyone traveling to Marrakech.

Couldn't Recommend this place highly enough. really welcoming staff, comfortable rooms, immaculate throughout and the location is only 5 mins from the main square. Would definitely recommend to any one (I have have already recommended to work colleagues). Norre-edenne was charming and couldn't do enough to help.

Stayed for 3 nights and had a brilliant time. From being met at the airport to being taken back to the waiting cab on departure.
The whole property is very high quality, and the service absoloutely 5 star, perfect position in the old town.
Would definately go back or recommend to anyone.

We had a family vacation in Marrakech: my wife, our 3-year-old daughter, and me. Marrakech was an amazing city, but just the wonderful experience at the Riad ANJAR was worth the trip!

First, the service was top notch. We were met at the airport and were treated with special care from the moment we left customs to the time our vacation ended. We felt like the riad was our home, while at the same time were treated to never ending wonderful service. I can't say enough nice things about the manager, Nour-Eddine, who made our stay special (taking us on a tour of the medina, helping with suggestions for traveling Marrakech with a toddler, always greeting us with a smile). The owner, Zahra, was warm, friendly, and ensured all our needs were met. It was really a perfect vacation with our daughter, though it would have been an equally wonderful trip for just my wife and I.

I recommend bringing a big appetite. We ended up eating dinner at the Riad twice because the food was so good. The breakfast each morning was a great start of each day.

Other points:
-Very convenient location - a few minutes from the souk, very safe and quiet neighborhood. The Marrakech streets are confusing and I am not great with directions, but Nour-Eddine gave us a few landmarks and we never had any issues with getting lost! No problems.
-Our room, Ajat, was the perfect size, immaculately clean, with a spa-like bathroom.
-Zahra arranged a day trip to the Atlas Mountains. I would highly recommend it if your schedule allows. Nice break from the city. We had a perfect, kid-friendly, hike/mule ride.
-No problems communicating if you don't speak French

Room Tip: All the rooms faced the courtyard, which was very peaceful at night.

Being from Canada and having never been to Marrakech we were a bit apprehensive about getting by in the city. Once we made it to Riad Anjar this was no longer a concern. First the Riad is truly beautiful. Our room was large and five star hotel clean. The accents and attention to detail paid to the decoration in every room, dining area and terrace parallels to the fine attention to detail that Zahra and Nour Eddine paid to us to ensure we had a great trip. The first night we were welcomed with a home cooked meal (made by a lovely Marrakechi woman). After eating at many places in Marrakech and Casablanca we realized that none of those meals were as good as the one prepared by the Riad (not sure why one of the reviewers said they had canned soup, I saw the woman preparing the food when I arrived). After our meal Zahra (the owner) and Nour Eddine sat down and helped us plan an itinerary. They made sure we saw the most important parts of the city and planned our excursions including our entire desert tour. We only had to pack our bags and show up (Nour Eddine even walked us to the meeting point).

Nour Eddine is the on site manager and was absolutely fantastic. Having little experience in this part of the world his attentiveness and willingness to always help makes an already amazing Riad a truly unique one. He helped us navigate through the city, made sure our excursions ran smoothly and was always there for us to ask questions (which we had many). He truly cares that you have a wonderful experience in not just the Riad but Marrakech itself.

The location of the Riad is excellent as it is very close to the main square and the exciting souks.

My only recommendation is to make sure the credit card machine is working alright (I'm sure Zahra is fixing it as I'm writing this). We ended up paying cash in the end but paypal is also convenient and works fine.

Overall this was an amazing experience. It is important to note that Zahra worked at Aguerzame which is a very highly rated Riad in Marrakech (her husband is the owner). She brings that same high level of service and commitment to your experience. Riad Anjar is truly flying under the radar right now and is a hidden gem in Marrakech.

Our stay at the Riad Anjar was perfection. We were promptly met at the airport and dropped close to the Riad, where Riad Anjar manager, Nour Eddine met us to bring us into the medina that was not accessible by car. This was the beginning of the personal attention that we experienced throughout our entire stay at Riad Anjar.

While we were finishing a delicious homemade (and complimentary tagine dinner), Laurent the owner stopped by to show us the layout of Marrakech and made insightful suggestions about tourist attractions- most of which we heeded. His effort was greatly appreciated for not only for its factual information, but also for the time and energy he spent to ensure we had a nice vacation in Marrakech. Later in our trip Zahra, Laurent's wife also spent a lot of time and energy to ensure we wanted for nothing and that we has a wonderful vacation.

The ambiance is Moroccan and well manicured. We wanted for nothing our entire stay. The rooms are very clean and well-kept. The Riad is very close to Djemaa el Fna, and other tourist attractions, like the Ben Yousseff Madressa and Marrakech Museums and steps from the souks.

Nour Eddine was the most attentive manager I have ever experienced. His kindness, energy and willingness to help in any way in unparalleled in all my travels.

I would recommend this Riad to anyone traveling to Marrakech.
