a small jewel in marrakech close to the souks and the " ville nouvelle" .
elegant, clean, comfortable with affordable staff.
We had the chance to have the massages at "home" with excellent service.
Great breakfast on the roof and the possibility to have an elegant dinner in the patio.
The riad inside is very modern with a touch of moroccan style.

Room Tip: best room bougainville

We have really enjoyed staying here although it has been a bit cold. The location is great in the Medina but not right in the thick of things. The staff are great, breakfast is good and the rooms are unique. We ate here the first evening and it was delicious. Aziz has been taking us around and his English is perfect and he is very interesting. I think it makes a big difference to have someone knowledge and enthusiastic drive you around. Inside the Medina we have been on our own - getting lost and having fun.

The Riad Chayma is an excellent adress to stay at in Marrakech. It is located in the Medina of Marrakech within walking distance of the main Square and the Souqs.
The staff is very friendly, prices are good and the rooms are luxurious. Breakfest is a combination of continental and Maroccon. Diner was good.
We planned to stay 4 nights, however due to food poisoning after eating at the market, we stayed an extra night. The staff took care of us excellently.

Rashid and his staff were so helpful in setting up dinner reservations, guides, etc. We loved our room and saw other Riads which were much more expensive and the rooms weren't any nicer. My girlfriend and I had a terrific time in Marakech, thanks very much to Riad Chayma.

I took my husband for a three night stay for his 50th Birthday. The Riad is small, intimate, clean, well positioned, beautifully decorated and the staff were so friendly and helpful. My husband was so touched to receive a 50th birthday cake on the morning of his birthday - thank you Riad Chayma! We stayed in the Delux Bougainvillea Suite which did not disappoint. It is probably one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in that wasn't our own! The Riad is positioned well as it is near the main walls but only a 15 minutes walk to the main square. It is definitely an oasis of calm compared to the mad chaos outside the alleyway! We would definitely recommend this Riad to anyone on a visit to Marrakech.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in November. We were very impressed with the communication we had with Rochelle who was extremely helpful in arranging a day trip to the Ourika Valley (with the brilliant Aziz), to booking spa treatments and advising as to our trip generally.

The Riad itself is in a great location right by Bab Doukkala gate and an easy 10-15 minute walk to the Souks or main square.

We stayed in the Jasmine Suite which was beautifully decorated, with ample space and a gorgeous bathroom. Both the room and bathroom were immacutely clean. We had our towels changed every day and complimentary water left for us.

A delicious breakfast was served every day on the terrace.

Shareef was extremely helpful and assisted with general guidance around the city, restaurant recommendations and reservations (Marrakechi and La Maison Arabe are two must go to places!) and helped me when I was taken ill.

I cannot recommend this Riad enough! Thanks to Rochelle, Shareef, Aziz and all the staff!

Room Tip: Choose the Jasmine Suite!
