“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We booked direct via email and all emails were replied to really promptly with Rochelle giving me lots of useful info re car hire.
If you are coming to the Riad straight from the airport I recommend the transfer. We were driven straight to the Riad, we had no hassles and didn't have to worry at all.
The evening meal we had on arrival was the best we had in Morocco! The breakfast on the terrace was yummy too. We also had lunch, which was very good value as the portions were a good size! We stayed in the saffron suite which was beautiful, we made use of the air con and wifi and the water in the room was replaced every day.
We were really well looked after by all of the staff at Riad Chayma, nothing was too much trouble.
The location was great, on a busy market street for locals so you could browse without getting hassle. The BBQ meat stall smelt so good, we wish we'd bought something. When planning our trip, I wasn't sure if the Riad was too far from the square, but when we got there, we found it was a fair walk, but there was always something to see and actually handy because the Riad wasn't too far to the supermarket where we bought some wine. It looked very easy to get a small taxi, but we always walked.
I spent a lot of hours looking for a Riad, and there are a lot of them! I am so pleased that we were a able to stay at Riad Chayma and I have been recommending it to all my friends. We'd love to be able to return one day!

Room Tip: The Saffron suite is on the first floor along with 2 other suites. They were all gorgeous, if you ca...

Our stay at the Riad Chayma was really excellent. The service was great, with all the staff going out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The Riad was really beautiful and in an excellent location. A short walk from the main square and other attractions, but also really peaceful and relaxing. Our dinner at the Riad on the first night was excellent, as was breakfast on the roof terrace every morning. I would highly recommend staying at Riad Chayma!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mint Room as it was the only room with twin beds (I travelled with my Mum), but I b...

The riad is perfect located for a visit in Marrakech. The way to the souks is only a 15-minutes-walk, the location is calm enough to get some relaxing hours between the vibrant time in the old town. The welcome at the riad was very warm, you feel like at home. We got all informations and best help for any questions we had. Even the breakfast on the terrace was familiar: Fresh orange juice as well as fruit plate or homemade bakery. We also recommend the offers from the riad to visit sights, landscapes or towns outside from Marrakech. Ask for Aziz and his great journeys. You will love them!

A little oasis in the middle of all the hustle and bustle that is Marrakech. Shareef and his team were outstanding in the quality of service that they provided and their attention to detail. The breakfasts on the roof terrace every morning were delicious and varied from day to day. We have already highly recommended this Riad to our friends and would to any one reading this review. Exceptional!

Room Tip: All rooms were tastefully interior designed.

I have visited this particular Riad THREE times - and that wouldn't be the last.
it may not be the biggest Riad, but it's the best.
The staff go above and beyond to make you feel like it's your home, breakfast is just brilliant with Morroccan inspired dishes with little English touches like yoghurt, fruit and little cake sprinkles!
Enjoy dinner under the stars - we did, and enjoy amazingly affordable rates for something so high quality, with outstanding service.
You are met by one of the hotel staff who will happily walk you to the Riad, its at the end of the Medina - and almost like the madness of a James Bond movie!
The hotel can fix up any trips and advice you of excellent restaurants - no motives. And again, hotel staff will be happy to walk and direct you to either a car or to the venue.
Amazing.

リヤドの場所は、少し汚めの野菜と肉市場の通りを横に入った場所にあり、入口の扉もまるで昔の倉庫に入るかの様で、とても中に宿泊施設があるとは思えない環境だった。
しかし中に入ると別世界の様だった。
今回、デラックス・ジャスミン・スウィートに3泊したが、バスルームも広くセカンド・ルームも綺麗で、€125/泊のチャージはかなりリーズナブルと思える。
朝食をとった屋上テラスも綺麗で、特にオムレツの具が日替わりで毎回とても美味しかった。スタッフの対応も非常に良く、様々なリクエストもそつなく時間厳守で答えてもらえた。
あえて難を言えば、マイナス面はバスルームの蛇口からお湯が出るまでに時間がかかった点と、朝に鳥の鳴き声が少々うるさかったくらい。あるブログで、近くのモスクから聞こえる早朝のコーランの声が気になるとのコメントもあったが、これはさほど気にならなかった。
日本人宿泊客は、リアドのオープン以来私たちで二組目とスタッフから聞いたが、ぜひ日本の旅行者にも宿泊して頂きたい。(少しばかり英語でのやり取りを勉強して)

This riad is located on the back street of local jumbled vegetable and meat market, and the entrance door looked like the traditional warehouse, but once enter into inside its interior is so luxurious.
This time we stayed 3 nights in “Deluxe Jasmine Suite”, the bath room is so wide and the second room is so neat that room charge EUR125/night is reasonable for us.
The rooftop terrace is also luxurious and especially the omelet of breakfast at this terrace was delicious with daily changed ingredient.
The staff had courteous reception, they cope with our several requests punctually and sincerely.
If I dear to mention the defect, it needs slightly long time to supply hot water from the tap of bath room, and in the morning time it is noisy by the twitter of small bird.
Just before our visiting we saw some comments in the web log that the Koran voice from the nearest Mosque had annoyed in the early morning, but it was no problem.
We heard we were the second guest since the riad opened, so I’d like Japanese tourists to stay Riad Chayma when they visit Marrakech, with just a little pre-study of English communication.

Excellent Riad, great location, very friendly and helpful staff. Agree with all recent reviews we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back. Nothing was too much trouble for Shareef and his team they were extremely helpful as and when the need required. Excellent breakfast on the rooftop terrace which we enjoyed every day of our visit.
If you we're to pick a Riad this would be top of the list, I'm sure we will return one day.
