“Wonderful riad, great for exploring the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Staff very friendly and always willing to help. Rooms cleaned daily and nicely decorated. Luca speaks good English and more than willing to give advice on things to see and prices to pay, very useful when bartering. Being five minutes or so from Djemaa El-Fna it makes a welcome oasis of calm from the hectic Marroccan daily life. Special thanks to Manuela who was able to quickly arrange a tour to the mountains when the one we had planned failed to run.

Tip: accept the transfer from the airport, MonRiad is not easy to find initially, you will be met at the airport by someone with a name card and you will be taken right to the riad’s door.

We stayed in 2 Riads in Marrakech and were impressed with the friendly and super-helpful staff here. ( we unwittingly messed them about but they were great about it) Lovely evening meal. We had a good large room with an enormous shower! We found it to be good value, and superbly positioned for all the sights of the medina. It is not far from the central square.

Monriad might be hard to find in the beginning, but its an excellent riad in the heart of medina. Great location - 15 min walk to THE incredible market, 15 minutes to Bahia palace. Stuff is really friendly and they do what they can to help you. Building is beautifull and everything is done with good taste. My room was really good - I really have no even single reason for complaining. When returning some day to Marrakesh I will surely check if Monriad has space for me. Molto grazie!

Not only is this riad wonderfully welcoming and genuinely hospitable, it is impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The staff are exceptionally helpful and accommodating; absolutely no sleaze!
The breakfast is lovely, freshly prepared and tasty. There is good/free WiFi and the riad is ideally located down a quite alley, close to nearby sites. In many ways this riad is an anomaly to what you find/experience in much of Morocco. If going to Marrakech, this is the place to stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in early Feb for a short break in the sun. Great location, and really useful to have Luca on hand to give us tips on what to see and what to avoid. We also had mint tea and dinner on arrival, which was absolutely delicious and the perfect start to the holiday.

We spent 3 days in MonRiad, with two kids. The riad is cosy and very close to all the main attractions of Marrakech. The room is well decorated and comfortable.
But the most important thing is the team that works at the riad they're lovely. The las night we had party time at the riad with a local music group and our kids loved it dancing with the music until bed time (at ten thirty the party ended).
We really recommend this place.

This riad is less than 5 minutes from the Jemaa el Fna and is really interesting and traditional. I was there for 4 nights and my experience was very good. The team working there are very helpful and the riad is very clean. During the evenings a fire was set in the lounge where there is a nice chimney. Breakfast was good too!
For sure the next time I will stay here.
