“Peace and quiet with exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

The Riad is lovely. The staff are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Atlas Mountains is just lovely. The Riad is 10 to 20 minutes walk North of the main square, Jamaa el Fna, through a labyrinth of narrow passages between buildings. The Riad provides guides... And mobile phones.... Both are invaluable and, fortunately, extremely reliable!
The staff are extremely attentive and you should make use of their help to get to and fro from the Riad. You do need to be able bodied and willing to walk. Don't be put off by people standing around on the corners. They are part of the City and are not to be feared. Just enjoy the experience!

We stayed at the Riad Kheirredine for a long weekend at the end of January to enjoy the blue skies, sunlight and fascination of Marrakech.

The rooms are beautifully designed and are as lovely as the pictures on the website suggest. We stayed in the Ambre room which has Moroccan décor, with a fireplace, sofa and coffee table as well as a comfortable bed. Nice touches included the 'cornes de gazelle' cakes on arrival, plus free soft drinks and fruit throughout our stay. In the morning you can have breakfast downstairs or on the roof terrace where you can look out over the Medina towards the mountains and enjoy the sunlight. The roof terrace is also a great place to end the day in the sun as it's well-furnished with sofas and sun loungers from which you can order drinks.

If you don't go out in the evening, the riad's Moroccan dinner is a good option. On request they can also do a lighter version from what's available on the day. Wine and some other alcoholic drinks can be purchased in the riad, and enjoyed with a meal, by the pool in the courtyard, or on the roof terrace.

The lovely staff look after you very well indeed. Indeed I would say the service at the Riad Kheirredine matches that of the very best and most expensive hotels I've stayed in. Nothing seems too much for them.

They also go out of their way to make you feel at home and safe in what is quite a chaotic city. On the first morning Ismael guided us through the maze of alleys to the taxi stop and from there through the busy covered shopping lanes to Jemaa el-Fnaa. His directions were faultless both in getting us there and in teaching us to find our own way back. The riad also provides you with a local mobile phone so you can call them if you get lost, need help, or want to be walked back from the taxi stop at night.

Mention must also of course go to Valentina, who made us feel welcome from beginning to end, and whose knowledge and advice was always valuable, and also to her colleague Yajaira. The proprietor, Marina, wasn't around when we were there, but it's clear she recognises that in a well-run business, happy staff make for happy customers. And we were certainly happy – go there, you'll love it!

My husband and I spent our four days in the Sandal room in January. We had a great time. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. The food was amazing and I never expected the wine in this area of the world to be so good. Thank you very much to Valentina and the rest of the Riad staff for welcoming us into their family. If you have an opportunity to visit morocco staying in the souks is a must to fully appreciate the culture and history and I would highly recommend this property.

I took my wife for a special holiday to celebrate her xxth birthday and this Riad exceeded our expectations - a truly amazing place. Located in old city and accessible only by foot, going through the front door was like entering another world. We stayed in the Eucalyptus suite which was spacious and luxurious and we had the delicious breakfast each day on the roof top terrace. Valentina, Yahaira, Ismael and the rest of the staff were outstanding - very welcoming, relaxed and friendly. As first time visitors to Marrakech the experience can be intense but their attention to make sure we found our way around and the provision of a phone in case we got lost ensured that we enjoyed our stay

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Vervienne room, which was amazing, relaxing, cute, cozy, romantic, quiet and comfortable. The service, especially Valentina and Ismail were great! Friendly, helpful, nice and mutlti linguistic. Drinks like mint tea, juice, wine etc were offered to us constantly. The terrace, either for breakfast or for a late night drink was beautiful with a scenic view and sense of calmness within the Hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Definitely recommend this to any age couple or family.
Thank you for a wonderful stay

Room Tip: Choose Vervienne.

This is THE best place we've ever stayed and to put it in perspective, Morocco was the 53rd country I've visited. Let me begin with the owner, Marina. I instantly felt like she was welcoming us into her beautiful home when we arrived. She made us feel like family. We were welcomed with a delicious breakfast to start. Following that, we sat outside in the courtyard by the pool and fountain as beautiful Valentina told us all about the Riad. There was no doubt in our minds that she would make our visit perfect. She showed us to our room on the top floor where fresh fruit and pastries were waiting. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, and very cozy with a fireplace. The light smell of incense and fresh flowers filled the air. The bathroom had handmade soap, shower gel and shampoo, and bathrobes hung perfectly on the wall. It was absolutely beautiful.
After our room tour, we took a few minutes to freshen up and Ishmael (spelling was waiting for us to escort us on our venture out into the Medina. He had previously walked us into the Riad after the airport transfer dropped us off at the nearest road. Ishmael is wonderful! Having lived in the Medina his whole life, he knows everyone! He escorted us to the square and gave us tips on good restaurants, etc. He always has a smile on his face and is so very helpful and humble. We had perfect directions from him and felt confident we could return to find the Riad by ourselves, but we had the cell phones from the Riad in case we ever got lost.

On days 2-3, we took a desert trip and camel ride. The Riad set everything up for us and it was PERFECT! In fact, when we arrived in the desert, they specifically asked if we were from Riad Kheirredine and we were taken to a better, more private camp than the rest of the people on our van.

The last two nights we stayed in the Riad were just as amazing as the first. With Valentina and Yajaira taking care of us, everything was perfect. We ate dinner at the Riad one of the nights and it was absolutely delicious. On the morning of my birthday, I was surprised by a bouquet of flowers at breakfast. Who does that? It was incredible! On our last afternoon there, we brought some cakes back from a local bakery and sat upstairs on the rooftop with two other couples from the Riad. Ishmael and a server climbed all the stairs to ensure we were well taken care of up there with wine, cheese, bread, olives, etc. They were wonderful!

The Riad is perfection. I only have praises for the "family" who allowed us to stay there. It truly was an exceptional time!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful. The first night we had a suite and the last two nights we had a stan...

I have done a fair bit of travelling in my time and I can confidently say that this riad is one of the top five places I have ever stayed. With its open air courtyard with a fountain and pool, this riad is not just an island of tranquillity in busy Marrakesh. What makes it extra special is the hospitality of the owner and her amazing staff. By staying here, you become part of what amounts to an extended family who go the extra mile to look after their guests. The level of service they provide is five star quality. From booking your train tickets (even sending a courier to pick them up from the station - free of charge) to lending you a mobile phone that you can call in case of emergencies to sending someone to pick you up if you get lost in the Medina to offering mint tea and snacks every time you pick up the phone for reception to remembering exactly how you like your eggs done in the morning to building a log fire in the fireplace of your room when you come in on a cold night to offering to help you negotiate the price for a Moroccan lamp in the market, this is one incredible find. The rooms are tastefully arranged with Moroccan antique furniture and they are well decorated. Pick the superior rooms - they were worth every penny. You will be glad you picked this place.
