“A fabulous place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Riad Chayma was an excellent place to stay. It is so beautiful and peaceful. It couldn't contrast more with the hustle and bustle of the street outside. We were greeted by Sharif who gave us refreshing mint tea and cold towels, which was a very welcome and nice touch. We stayed in the Saffron Suite, which was decorated beautifully. Breakfast on the roof terrace was also excellent and varied.

We also organised through the Riad to go on a 3 day tour over the Atlas mountains to the desert with the Riad driver, Aziz. This was the absolute highlight of the trip. Aziz's knowledge of the land and history was exceptional and it felt as if we were travelling with an old friend. Whilst we were on the excursion, we were able to keep the rest of our luggage in our room at the Riad.

This Riad is an absolute gem. The staff there couldn't be more willing to help you in every way possible, it made for one truly unforgettable holiday.

My partner and I celebrated our Honeymoon at the Riad Chayma, staying there for a total of 7 days and we cannot rate it highly enough. Riad Chayma was just perfect, they could not have been more helpful providing a wonderful oasis of calm from the madness that is Marrakesh. The Riad is in a great location, not too far from all the main attractions. Rooms are very stylish and nicely decorated with a lovely roof terrace. Sherriff and all the staff are all friendly and attentive. Breakfasts were absolutely divine something different every day.

Room Tip: All the rooms are individually designed and are all very special

The riad is clean and beautiful.the staff is attentive and very helpful.From the airport transfers, the excursions, the breakfast everything is given a personal touch.When you get to the market it can be a bit daunting so it was a pleasant surprise when we stepped into the emaculate peaceful riad. It was quiet and you don't hear any noise.I Loved it .I will definately go back. Many thanks to aziz, sherif and adin

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.
