My wife and I have just returned from our trip to Spain and Morocco, and the highlight of our trip was without a doubt our stay at Riad Kheirredine. We chose this Riad because of it's high ranking (#3) and all of the great reviews previously from satisfied guests, and it greatly exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed for 4 nights so the Riad arranged for a transfer to and from Marrakesh airport. The driver was waiting for us as soon as we exited the terminal and brought us to Sidi Ben Slimane where we met Ismail, who helped us bring our bags to the Riad. Ismail immediately made us feel at home, as he was truly one of the kindest hearted people we have ever met in all our travels. After dropping our bags, he brought us to Jemaa El-Fna, showing us a a number of landmarks along the way and ensuring that we understood the route back to the Riad. He was a wonderful guide and a tremendous help throughout our stay, as we could always count on him to help us find certain sites or advise of things to do and see. The Riad is run brilliantly by Yajaira and Valentina, who continually went above and beyond to ensure we had the best stay possible. They were always there to provide recommendations on sites, restaurants, and provide support to ourselves as well as any of the other guests whenever needed. We had a meal cooked at the Riad on our first night, which I would highly recommend. The meal was huge and included 6 salads/mezzes, soup, various breads and pastries, tagine, and dessert. It was one of the best meals we had during our stay and was a perfect introduction to Moroccan cuisine for our first night. Due to an overlap with some other bookings, we stayed in 2 rooms during our stay; Verveine the first 2 nights and Rose the last 2 nights. Verveine was a basic room, but much bigger than we expected and well worth the cost. The Rose room was a suite, which was also spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and more than big enough. We have stayed at a number of small and charming places throughout our world travels, but Riad Kheirredine was without a doubt the best. The Riad itself was in a perfect area in a more residential area of the Medina, not too far from Jemaa El-Fna, but it was the incredible staff that makes this place so special. From Valentina and Yajaira, to Ismail, Ibrahim, Abdul, Elena, and on and on, we have never felt so at home, so cared for, and so special as we did during our stay at Riad Kheirredine. These people were so kind, so humble, and so hard working; they truly touched our hearts and made us sad to leave this wonderful Oasis in the middle of such a crazy and chaotic place! We will be planning another trip to Morocco someday, in large part to return to this wonderful Riad. For whatever reason, their ranking has dropped in the past couple weeks, but I cannot imagine a better place to stay in all of Marrakesh. I have reached out to TripAdvisor to get the matter resolved, but in the meantime, you should book this Riad as it is without a doubt deserving of it's previous #3 ranking. Thank you staff at Riad Kheirredine for everything you did and for making this the greatest and most memorable trip of our lives!!
We stayed in Verveine and Rose; both were incredible and all rooms appeared to be uniquely decorated...
