“Great place, great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

I came to Marrakech with 3 more friends and we stayed four nights in the Belle Epoque Ryad. The staff is great, everyone was very attentive and nice, the breakfast is amazing, even more when taken on the rooftop and the rooms very clean and comfortable.
We had a great time!

My friend and I stayed here at the end of October and we loved it. Our hosts were so helpful, meeting our taxi at the square late at night, helping to make reservations for cooking classes, restaurants and spas and giving us tips on navigating Marrakech. We needed all the help we could get! The decor and food was also great. Breakfast is a great meal that held us over for many hours of walking.
We hope to return for a visit!

My cousin and I loved this Riad and the wonderful staff, very professional in every way, yet warm and friendly! We arranged for a pick-up at the train station (20 euros), and the driver was on time and was very courteous. We were met at the parking lot by Rahall, and he helped us with our luggage. On our first night, we were so exhausted from a 29-hour flight from Manila. The staff went out of their way to prepare a last minute dinner for us -- the best beef tagine!!! Our room was always neat and the towels were always fresh! On every occasion, we were always greeted with a warm smile and genuine attention; they were very courteous and helpful. The Riad is walking distance to the souqs and to the square; the main attractions (eg Sadiian tombs, Bahia palace, etc.) are just a 5-10 dirham cab ride away. I forgot my Marrakech travel book, and the staff lent me their copy for the whole duration of our stay. We missed every bit of the Riad and of the staff the moment we stepped out of the door on our last day -- it was home away from home! We will definitely stay here again when we go back with our family!!! Wonderful!!!

Room Tip: We stayed at the Josephine Baker room, which has a twin bed; perfect for my cousin and I, as we did...

I loved staying at the Riad de la belle epoque. It had everything we needed, as well as what we just wanted. As model going to work i was very happy to find a place with good service, good people(international), well location and peaceful environment, and i dont even want to get started with the good food and confy beds:) i needed my energy and rest and i got everything here. Best cous cous and mint tea youl ever try plus its cookies! At my stay in the hotel i felt like at home, it is small and very quiet too. And since it can get very hot in marrakech it has a fresh pool in the middle of the Riad where you can freshen up and then continue your sun bath on the roof top.
I also loved how it was in the middle of the town of Marrakech it was easy to leave the hotel and get to know Marrakech more profoundly, and learn by experiencing the life in Marrakech. It was also very good for our pictures, everything turned out great.
Hopefully ill visit again !

This is a great place to stay: fab staff, fab food, fab rooms, fab beds and the sun helped too! It's a smal riad but that gives you more personal and friendly relationships with the great staff. Good location too.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are probably quieter

I loved this place. My kids and I spent two nights here, and I fell in love with not only the place but the people. Everyone was very attentive and seemed genuinely concerned about my family having a great experience. We even came back one evening just for dinner (we stayed at another riad for 2 nights because I messed up our reservations). They helped arrange airport transportation and an excursion to L'Ourika Valley. I was concerned about being on my own with two kids in Morocco, but everyone at La Belle helped ease my concerns. There is no doubt I would stay here again.

It was an amazing place to spend 5 days in Marrakech. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful from start to finish. We were very well treated, almost like royalty. The plunge pool was perfect for the crazy Moroccan heat in the summer. The air-condition helped a lot too. The breakfasts differed from day to day, were traditional and well-prepared. LOTS of towels provided. There is almost one for everything you could think of. The room was nothing short of luxurious, possibly the best we've ever stayed in. Even the toiletries provided were of amazing quality - produced locally as well. They made staying in a chaotic albeit beautiful city effortless for us, arranging everything from our taxis to and from the airport, excursion to Ourika Valley, providing maps and directions for around the city etc. We couldn't have asked for any more. Thanks guys.
