“An absolute must!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in Sept 2010, and that was the only problem we had.... we should have stayed for longer. The Riad is an absolute must for any visitor to Marrakesh.

The Service - Outstanding. Abdou and the team go out of their way to help and make you feel at home.

The food - Divine. We only had breakfast but what a breakfast it was! On the roof terrace with the a great selection of the freshest and finest food.

The location - Excellent. No more than 3 mins walk to the Souks and 5 mins to the Main Square. Abdou provides you with a mobile phone so if you need any directions or help you can contact him directly.

The Rooms - Wow! We stayed in the Chefchaouen suite which had air con, mini bar, ipod docking station, twin shower and snug (hidden area with 32 inch plasma, DVD and lots of cushions).

Facilities - are room had great facilities, you wouldnt find such gadgets in most 4 star hotels and the rest of the Riad is no exception. We had full use of the dipping pools, roof top terrace, book library, small DVD library and the small selection of (current) English and French magazines.

This Riad was recommended to me by a Friend and I would most certainly recommend it to anyone else. Marrakesh is a beautiful, vibrant and very busy city - but this Riad provides the perfect tranquil hideaway.

My wife and I stayed at the Riad Cinnamon in early sept 2010. The place is superb. The staff are great too, they cant do enough for you. The Riad is situated in a good place, just north of the Souks.
Would definitely stay here again.

Only open a few months but run to a really high standard. The accommodation is very comfortable, all 5 rooms decorated with a different Moroccan style, en-suite and air con. Food is typically Moroccan, plentiful, breakfast and evening meal can be served on the roof terrace if you prefer. All the staff are so helpful, and understood my poor French!! Loungers on the terrace have plenty of scope to sunbath or just sit and read, it's very peaceful. Situated in the Medina you don't have far to walk to be in the Souks and main square. Plenty to see, places to go and excursions can be booked through the Manager. I thoroughly recommend the Hammam! All in all a brilliant week exploring Marrakech and beautiful weather.

I have just spent two nights at Riad Cinammon, travelling with my 15 year old we had teh Meknes suite. Every detail of this Riad is very well thought through and credit should go to the owners for the standard of the accommodation and interiors. Abdou was a wonderful guardian and looked after all our needs including arranging Taxi's etc... a nice touch is the house mobile that helps you trying to find your way home after a hard days haggling, trust me you will need it...

One small niggle was that the air-conditioning did not have much effect on the overall temperature and we had no hot-water but the two kind of cancelled each other out.

Acid test is that I would stay here again and also recommend to friends.

I have just returned from a 3 night short break at Riad Cinnamon, and although thi is not my first time to Marrakech this is by far the best Riad I have stayed in. The Riad is clean stunning without being to fussy, and the staff are great and always willing to help. The manager Abdou was always making sure we were happy, and the dinner we had at the Riad was lovely. I love Marrakech but fell in love wuth this Riad so much I am planning my next trip back for November already!. I would reccomend this Riad to anyone wanting value for money without compromising on quality or service.

The attention to detail set this beautiful riad apart.
The Staff were wonderful, and the old adage 'nothing is too much trouble' was most certainly true.
The Moroccan mobile phone for each guest was an inspired touch.
The rooms are beautifully appointed with every little extra to make you feel pampered.
