“Lovely Riad, helpful staff, excellent stay all round!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our stay at Riad Elsa was amazing! The riad was lovely and very traditional, and breakfast was delicious. Ismael was so helpful in organizing all the activities which were excellent! He was a great help as he was available 24/7 and whatever we needed he would provide that very day! Brigette, Mustafa, and Saadia were also so welcoming and helpful! We would definitely recommend staying with these guys as the service is on point! Will definitely stay here again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had a very pleasant stay in Marrakech due to this hotel. The rooms were clean, the staff were very frriendly and the breakfast was a good start for the day. The room was probably a bit moist and had no airconditioning, but the beds were fine, the swimming pool was very refreshing in the Maroccan heat.

I stayed here off and on during 2 weeks in Morocco, using Marrakech as a travel base.
Brigitte and Ismael and the team gave a very warm welcome and were always helpful with arranging trips and taxis, buying train and bus tickets for me, etc.

Location is good yet quiet, hidden in a network of alleys in the Berrima district, a few minutes walk from the royal palace and El Badi palace, and about 15 minutes (I think) walk from the big square (Djemaa El Fna). It is hard to find first time. The hotel arranged a taxi from the airport when I arrived and they met the taxi to guide me on foot for the last 100M or so to the riad.

Rooms are comfortable. Some have aircon, some don't (not that it mattered when I was there in November).
There is a pleasant roof terrace but no view (unless perhaps you can see over the walls).

Some evenings they served a delicious meal when a group wanted to eat in.

Good value and warmly recommended.

This riad has a true Moroccan feel. It is near to the main square and tourist attractions about ten minutes walk. Breakfast is good (continental) and the bedroom was clean.
The staff are very friendly and more than helpful, the hospitality was excellent. The staff couldn't go out if their way enough advising on the best places to go, taxis etc

Very cheap, value for money.
