“Like Home away from Home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Zahra runs a seamless operation of managing this tasteful riad. It is situated in the heart of the medina, walking distance from Djema el fna and you can literally walk to pray at the Mouassine mosque. The riad is brand new in its fixtures and decor and yet somehow exudes the traditional Moroccan ambience. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms and amenities are more than adequate and most importantly you feel like you are living in a home around family. Very child friendly, breakfast is like a lavish feast with variety and huge quantity!

As a first-timer to Marrakesh, we didn't know what to expect and were hopeful that we could rely on the staff at Riad Anjar to orient and acclimate us (and suggest a couple of good restaurants and hammams). We were not disappointed and impeccable service came in the form of the always charming Nour-Eddine.

From the moment we entered the Riad to the moment we (reluctantly) left, Nour-Eddine provided us with everything we needed to enjoy Marrakesh to the fullest. In addition to serving a delicious, massive breakfast each morning, Nour-Eddie was happy to recommend and book for us restaurants, hammam services, car rentals, taxis - anything we asked for.

In addition to service, Riad Anjar is a very beautiful riad as well. Well-designed decor in the main courtyard as well as in the rooms. The rooftop deck is a relaxing, enjoyable place to eat breakfast in the mornings as well, weather permitting.

Location is ideal as the souks and main market are a close walk away and the Riad is tucked away down a quieter alley off a louder, busier road.

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.
