“Amazing oasis of calm with wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We stayed here for a week in October 2012 and cannot praise this riad enough! Entering in through the small door (it's a bit of a challenge to find) from the dusty streets of the medina, it really does feel like you're entering an oasis of calm. The owners and staff (Laurence, Alain, Said, and Asma) were all incredibly welcoming, warm, and friendly and went above and beyond the call of duty, even offering us medicine when the inevitable Moroccan stomach malaise set in. We stayed at a few other riads during our visit to Morocco but none of them compared to Riad charme d'orient. The attention to detail at this riad is flawless, from the amazing breakfasts with a myriad of tiny pots to the tangia cooked in the oven of the hamam across the street. We would definitely return if we come back to Marrakech.

We spent three nights at this wonderful Riad. Laurence, Alain and Said will welcome you with open arms and set the tone with wonderful customer service right from the moment you step out of the cab. She will imediately welcom you with tea and tell you everything you need to know about the city. We arrived late on the first evening and decided to eat in, you will not be disappointed, the food was soooo good. The Riad is just simply gorgeous, in a great location and customer service everyone desires!!! Would go back there in a heart beat!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights - this place is an absolute haven away from the madness that is Marrakech! Laurence, Alain and Said were great hosts ensuring that we knew where we were going, how to get there and what to expect! Our room (Moulay Ahmed) on the first floor was perfect. We decided to try one of their evening meals on offer and have to say it was delicious! The lamb tagine was amazing.
The roof terrace has plenty of seating and sun beds - ideal for the end of the day after the hustle and bustle of the city.
We would definitely recommend this Riad.

Room Tip: Most rooms have double beds only though I do believe there is one guest room with singles. First f...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The riad itself is beautiful - comfortable, stylish and relaxing. A perfect retreat from the busy crowds.

Nice roof terrace for breakfast and lounging in the sun. Owners and staff all really friendly & welcoming. Helped us organise day tours to the Atlas Mountains & recommended things to do in Marrakech.

Highly recommended!

This riad is a little gem. It has only been open for 2.5 years and everything inside is brand new and of amazing taste. Laurence is a wonderful hostess. She does it with the heart and as a guest, you will feel incredibly looked after. She works so hard in the riad, taking care of every little detail. Our room was very nice (Moulay Ahmed on the first floor) and offered privacy. The riad also has a great terrace and a brand new glass roof which makes it probably the only riad in Marrakech to have that sort of roof protection over the central patio. Good breakfast, very central position. We highly recommend it (and we are fussy, typically only go to 4-5 stars hotels).

This is a lovely riad in an excellent location within easy walking distance to all the attractions. Laurence, Alain and Said were very helpful and welcoming, making our experience there a very relaxed one and creating a homely atmosphere. Breakfast on the terrace was delicious. All highly recommended and the best of the 3 riads we stayed in in Marrakech.

Positives:
Beautiful riad. Every architectural feature was carefully thought out. The bathroom was spacious. The rooms were very well decorated and furnished. This is a top quality riad with incredible service.

What I really liked about this riad is that Laurence and Alain welcomed us with splendid hospitality. Laurence was very keen to ensure that we had properly experienced Marrakech by making recommendations for us. They did not charge extra 'pick up' service fee when I required a taxi to pick us up from our car rental place. They simply arranged for a taxi to fetch us.
