“Great little Riad with excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this beautifully renovated Riad. The accommodation is stylish, clean and comfortable, the breakfast (served on the roof) is just right. But what really sets this little place apart is the service. Not only did they take care of us during the day (guiding us around the souks and the sights) but also arranged tables for us at some of the best restaurants in Marrakech and the best new bars and clubs too. They even arranged a pummeling at a very good hammam! Moreover, they always took great care to make sure we found our way there and back wherever we wanted to go - which is a big plus in a confusing city. This is the sort of attention you normally only get from concierges at the plushest hotels - here it's all part of the service at a little Riad on a tiny side street in the medina. What more could you wish for?  If you're new to Marrakech (as I was) and want to mix the lux with some of the authentic old medina experience, you really can't go wrong with this place.  I will definitely be going back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

We stayed at the Riad Asrari for 4 nights, end of November to beginning of December. The hotel was a delight, the scent of cinnamon wafted out when the outside door opened into the little reception area. From there, the central covered courtyard was filled with orange trees and a little fountain - there is even a pet tortoise! All the rooms are individually furnished with Morrocan antiques and curios - our room had brightly coloured little masks on the wall and a shower shaped like a little tent. The bed was extremely comfortable, so much so that a late afternoon 'doze' ended up as an early night! This place is extremely clean and welcoming. Breakfasts are served in a romantic Bedouin tent up on the roof by Adil, pronounced 'Adgie', who was so sweet and helpful in recommending where to eat. The breakfasts themselves consist of little pancakes served with honey and jams, home made yogurt, and a selection of morrocan cakes and pastries. This place was a delight to come back to after a day of hustle and bustle in the souks or sightseeing. Perfect for couples!

Located in the heart of the Marrakech Medina, in the area of Bab Doukkala, easy to reach by car or a ten minute walk from the JEMAA el FNA Square and beautifull Majorelle Gardens, this 17th century Riad has been restored with full respect to the Moroccan tradition, keeping its original characteristics: a patio shaded by trees, the coolness of its very old marble fountain, peaceful living-rooms and a beautifully planted terrace where you can enjoy the Sunset and the view of the Medina... The RIAD ASRARI is a traditional riad with wonderful moroccan craftsmanship such as sculpted plaster ceilings, exquisitely carved Cedar doors, colorful tadelakts and zelliges skilfully composed of delicate oriental patterns. You will be welcomed with traditional pastries and Mint tea by our thoughtful and discreet staff. You will discover peaceful places to rest: the terrace and sun-beds, comfortable sofas and the kaidale tent under which you can have your breakfast. You can also relax, read and dream in our beautiful living rooms... On the patio, you will be enchanted by the magestic pace of our two tortoises as they follow their daily sunbathing ritual If you are patient enough you might also see our chameleon who plays hide and seek in the trees ! The furniture and decorative objects were procured during the owner's numerous travels, or were designed and made on site by Moroccan craftsmen. Many Primitive Art pieces are exhibited throughout the riad... All of these well considered elements have been combined for a perfect getaway. In the RIAD ASRARI, you can forget television and noisy pools...You will discover another Marrakech, in the heart of the Arabic Tradition: authentic and refined ... more   less
