“Great little Riad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We stayed at Riad Birdy and the staff were so helpful and wonderful! It was recommended to us by a friend, and after reading the reviews we had no doubt that we would enjoy our stay there. The different breads we had (freshly made every morning) for breakfast were delicious. Vincent and Latifa were great and very warm and welcoming. Overall a great stay!

A haven of peace and tranquility amidst hidden inside the bustle and tustle of the Medina in Marrakech.... quiet, clean, impecably decorated, with a refreshing pool outside you window to cool off. You walk through the door off the street and discover this little paradise, perfect after a days out in the heat and chaos...
The Riad is a bit further outside the Medina than some, but the walk there we did not find too long. Also this means that it is really very quiet and ideal for a great night´s sleep.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor are naturally cool, did not even need to turn on the air-conditionning!

We only stayed one night at Riad Birdy but it was a delightful experience. The staff was very helpful, they helped us find a restaurant in the area late at night. The room was amazing, with our own terrace, a spacious bathroom and a view on the swimming pool. There is also a sun terrace with sunbeds where you can relax away from the buzzing streets of Marrakech. The riad itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Whilst it is only a few minutes walk to the main square, it is very peaceful and safe. All in all, it was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Marrakech.

My husband and I stayed for a week in March 2013. I spent a long time looking at riads on the internet, looking for the perfect place to stay. Birdy defiantly lived up to my expectations and was as good as the photos on the website. Birdy has been designed with great care and attention, a work of art. It is especially beautiful at night time with lots of lighting. Amina, who was working there was very kind and friendly and my husband and her chatted in Arabic. We were told to make ourselves at home by Vincent and Latifa which made us both felt very relaxed. The roof terrace has views of the mountains, the medina wall and pretty birds flying around. The weather was mixed but at the end it was hot and we went in the pool and lay on the roof terrace, very nice! The Riad was also in a quiet area which made it even more relaxing and peaceful. What can I say we loved it, perfect place! Marakesh as a city is also very exciting and we can't wait to come back and visit again.

A great pleasure in this Riad, for those with clubs, and those looking for the relaxation and welcome of beautiful club house. We took the double room Sonia with charming linens and decoration. Breakfast is very convenient and tasty, served all morning.
The whole establishment has lovely furnitures, and although every riad has its pool, this one is a perfect evocation of a refreshing water feature.
The Royal golf course is just 5 minutes away, so once you have had your comfortable night and delicious breakfast you can get straight out onto the greens.
All round, I cannot recommand this exquisite hotel too hightly! Whenever I am in Marrakech again, I will be going straight back here.

I have just come back from spending 6 nights staying in Riad Birdy on a trip to celebrate my 50th Birthday, with my son and partner and another family. The Riad is just beautiful, and a much welcomed calm retreat after a crazy day in the city. Neema and Meena (sorry if I have spelt your names wrong ;) were amazing cooking some of the best dishes we had in Marrakech. The Riad is beautifully furnished, stylish and very comfortable and the bedrooms are stunning.
We were made to feel very special, and looked after very well.
Definitely to be recommended and I am sure we will go back some time.

Room Tip: We had the room without the door to the bathroom! Just make sure you know your sleeping companion w...

My friend and I were exhausted after a week of mad Morocco and we were looking for our haven that night. Vincent was so welcoming and we were upgraded at no extra cost to the Yasmina suite which is out of this world. My friend and I were back packing and when we walked into the riad it was lit beautifully and we walked into the court yard and said 'oh my god this is amazing.' our suite was epic and we felt a bit scruffy for this beautiful place but Vincent made us feel very special bringing us mint tea on the roof top, incredible food, wonderful service. Vincent helped us in knowing where to go, escorted us to the taxi to get to the airport and secured a price for us with the driver so we didn't get ripped off. The riad is just incredible. We were walking along the quiet streets away from the chaos and there were gorgeous children playing and suddenly we were shown into the riad and we could not believe this treasure was behind such bare walls. Highly recommend this place. Luxury but reasonably priced. It was such treat! Would definitely go back. Very romantic for 2 best mates :) thank you Vincent!
