“Amazing hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Riad Granvilier and had an amazing time. Hisham the manager and the rest of the staff were absolutely wonderful. We stayed in a suite which was huge and stunning. It is just off the main square and as soon as you walk in the doors its an oasis of peace from the hustle and bustle outside. They have a wonderful roof top terrace and the forecourt was beautiful. But the staff and their hospitality was just outstanding, I have travelled to many places and have never experienced anything quite like it - wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: They have just five rooms and all are beautiful, go for a suite if you want a treat

This was my first time in Morocco and what a crazy experience. What made it the most memorable was this Riad.

Everyone here was nice, personal and welcoming. Their service made my trip stress-free and extremely comfortable.

But what topped it all was their food - especially their chicken tangine. It was to die for! I had many tangine throughout the trip but nothing beats the taste here. It was absolutely delicious!!

The Riad Granvilier is truly an oasis in the centre of the Medina of Marrakech.

This was our first trip to Morocco and we booked a weeks' accommodation at the Granvilier in the Oriental Suite, we were not disappointed!
The Riad is a tranquil bolthole in the centre of the hustle & bustle of the Medina.
We were greeted at the airport in the evening by a member of staff who drove us to the Jemaa el Fnaa, we were then escorted through the thriving square at night by Hicham who thoughfully pointed out various "landmarks" to help throughout our stay (We would never have found the riad without him). Hicham then gave us a tour of the Riad whilst other members of staff make us a welcoming drink of Moroccan mint tea and carried our luggage up to the suite.

The ambience of the Riad is wonderful and the breakfast's & dinners are amazing with all the staff genuinely "going the extra mile" to make sure your stay is one to remember.

Thankyou to all of the staff at Riad Granvilier for a very memorable holiday. ( you truly deserve the high praise in these reviews).

This was our favorite place that we stayed while in Morocco. What made it stand out so much was the service (as mentioned in all the other reviews, Hicham went out of his way to make sure that our time in Marrakech was enjoyable and went smoothly). But even without the service, the hotel was beautiful and comfortable. Our room (the oriental suite) looked better than it did on the website, there were nice toiletries, hot water was fine, the towels were SO fluffy, heater for the winter, safe in the room, wifi....I had been expecting to have to give up on nice hotel amenities to experience staying in a riad, but was so pleasantly surprised! Location was perfect as well.

For me, being in Marrakech was beautiful! I loved the place! Never had traveled to a place like this! Also, I was very pleased with where I stayed, Riad Granvilier! Truly a hotel with 5-star service, excellent quality service. Rooms super comfortable and well appointed and very clean. Food, pleasant surroundings! It was a dream!

The Riad Granvilier has to be one of the best places we have every stayed. Our room (the Oriental suite) was exactly as pictured on the website, comfortable and more than enough space for a 7 night stay. The staff were amazingly helpful and so, so friendly. The location was perfect - so close to Jemaa el Fna and the souks - but a world away once you were inside the Riad. The food was unbelievable, so fresh, so tasty, so good. Our highlight - watching the sun set on 2012 from the rooftop terrace of Riad Granvilier. Simply perfect.

We should have written this review a long time ago.

I wish I could pay extra to be able to rate this Riad higher than 5. This wonderful little slice of heaven is a diamond in the rough. When we arrived we were greeted by the charming and all knowing host, Hecham. We didn’t know at the time, but he would be our guide to everything wonderful and enchanting about Marrakech. We have never had better service (or better food) anywhere in the WORLD than at Riad Granvilier. The day we arrived, Hecham guided us from the busy square to our Riad, pointing out milestones and (VIEWPOINTS) along the way. We later appreciated that these hints helped us find our way to and from the riad for the rest of our vacation. Marrakech can be quite a maze but Hecham’s directions made it easy as pie.

Arriving in the riad, we were instantly offered breakfast before continuing the tour. We didn’t know it at the time but that was the best advice we’d ever heard from a concierge. When we had eaten after our very long journey we suddenly realized we were in a gorgeous setting. Having a little food in our tummys made us so much happier and excited to take in the sites. The first sight being the stunning Riad. We could see straight up into the blue sky, and all around us was beautiful tile work and fluffy pillows. It was a dream!

We have travelled a lot, but at the riad we met people that we truly considered to be friends, and surprisingly enough this was the riad staff itself. Asna, the chef makes the best yogurt we’ve ever had, and ever will have, and anyone will ever even think could exist, and so, and so on, and so on ☺. The food there was the best we have ever had abroad. Ever.

Hecham pointed us out to a few places, and took his time to draw us a detailed to ensure that we wouldn’t get lost. And his help made our stay comfortable and kept us from feeling vulnerable, which as two women was very important.

At every juncture, someone at the riad was suggesting something that turned to be magical. From the palace, to the Medina, to the dinners on the terrace; there is no way to accurately express how utterly enchaining our experience was. But we know without a doubt that Hecham and the riad were the reason we fell in love with Marrakech.

Morocco is still our favorite place we have been in the whole world, and we truly believe that is thanks to the staff at the Riad Granvilier. We miss you all!!! See you next year!

Fondly,
Chelsea
