“Treated like royals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We've booked this trip for our wedding anniversary and the staff of this ryad have made it very special. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIPs, the manager of the ryad Amin spent a lot of time with us finding out what we would like to see and do in and outside Marrakech. The owner of the ryad has offered us warm clothes when we went on the 3 day trip to the dessert which was organised by Amin and I highly recommend.
We preordered a dinner in the ryad cooked by Fatima which was excellent. We were very well taken care of, even better than in some of the best restaurants.
All in all if not for the staff and the owner of the ryad this trip would have been a simple city break but thanks to Amin, Sofian, Fatima and the personal approach of the owner Omid we have had one of the best holidays!

The riad itself is beautiful, decorated superbly, every inch. The communal area downstairs was beautiful, especially at night with the candles, and our room was equally as lovely. The staff were so attentive and helpful, booking us trips and guiding us. The dinners were absolutely delicious, I would advise everybody to eat at least one meal there. As soon as we stepped inside it was an oasis of calm amongst the chaotic surroundings. The only negative which cannot be ignored is the surroundings. If you're expecting clean, tidy, "new" Marrakesh this is not the place for you. The riad is buried deep within the Medina. It's busy and chaotic outside, as British tourists, especially women, you will get looked out, stared at, followed etc. But this is not the fault of the riad itself, the riad is perfect, it cannot help its location. Just one thing to bear in mind when considering booking!

This trip was a gift for our Silver Wedding Anniversary from my family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the Ryad Amiran. The hospitality was second to non. The welcome from the Manager and staff was superb and we were always greeted with a smile whatever time of day. The rooms and surroundings were comfortable and very clean. The food at the Ryad was authentic Morrocan dishes with different flavours and delicious and served at your leisure. The roof terrace is a place to relax and a nicely furnished. The Souks are amazing with an array of colours but you must be prepared to barter. If you don't barter, you will end up paying top prices for your goodies. We would personally like to thank Amin, Sofian, Hind, Rizlan, Fatma and Mohammed for their kindness and making our stay memorable...Shukran :)

Myself and my wife spent 4 nights at this beautiful little Ryad in the medina. We were taken to the front door by our travel rep and were greeted by the friendly staff, who sat us down and gave us mint tea. The place is a little palace, very nicely decorated in tradional Moroccan style. The manager, Amin was most helpful, he gave us a map and drew on there the best routes to the tourist hotspots. Amin knows Marrakech inside out and is great at answering any questions and offered us great advice when we suggested where we wanted to go each day. All the staff were very very friendly and we were always greeted with a smile and asked if everything was ok. The guest is treated as number 1 in this Ryad. The double room we had was nice and cool and was very tastefully decorated. the batroom was spacious and a nice big shower with lots of hot water.
The Ryad is located about 25min walk from the main square, a route that takes you right through the souks and markets. It was really nice to stay in the old town as you felt you were in the middle of the chaos! We slept very well every night, possibly due to all the walking and sightseeing we carried out.

The roof terrace is a nice retreat from the hussle bussle of Marrakech, with a lovely traditional covered area with comfy sofas underneath.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Ryad Amiran, you will be well looked after.

This is such a beautiful Ryad. I just can't fault it. From the moment we arrived we were treated like kings and our room has been a luxurious haven from the chaos of the Souks. The roof terrace is a wonderfully private chill out zone and sunspot for an evening drink. Fully recommend this Ryad.

From the moment we scheduled this impromtu visit through our departure within a day, we were treated with the highest level of service. Located in the Medina you feel like you step back centuries but are treated to modern amenities. As soon as the staff realized our visit was short, they offered their advice on essential things to see. They provided very practical advice on how to enjoy the culture and be thoughtful about the surroundings. The highest level of service ever experienced as a traveler. The dinner at the hotel was delightful. I had to depart at 3:00 a.m. for a flight and the staff prepared coffee for me. This is the place if you want to experience Marrrakech but feel like you are home at the same time.
