“Perfect for the true medina experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed for 4 nights in March in the prune room - we had problems with the toilet working properly and the noise from neighbours (not guests the people next door) as walls were very thin.

However, the riad is situated in a beautiful building and breakfast in the courtyard or terrace is very pleasant. The location in a narrow backstreet of the medina is not far from the souks and main square but it is easy to get lost.

Staff are polite, friendly and helpful - they arranged a taxi for us from the airport and met us from the drop off point which was very handy as we'd never have found the Riad on our own. They also sorted us out with an English speaking taxi driver for the day to go into the atlas mountains. Unfortunately when it came to booking a taxi to the bus station for the next leg of our journey there was a mix up but they did manage to resolve and we made the bus just in time but it was an expensive ride.

This is an absolutely fabulous place to stay in Marrakech Medina - I would recommend it to anyone. We stayed as a group of 4 friends, but this would equally suit single or couple travellers. The rooms are beautiful and very well equipped with lovely (if unlabelled!) toiletries. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and big enough to set you up for the whole day. The staff were very accommodating, taking our collective desire for more savoury items at breakfast in their stride and providing delicious omelettes as a result. We ate there the first night and the set menu they served was superb from start to finish. Very much a friendly, family run affair, the staff all made you feel extremely welcome - even up to springing an unrequested surprise birthday cake on one of our party. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Take care on the marble floors - particularly when the plants have been watered!

Room Tip: Whilst the riad itself is very quiet, the downstairs rooms do suffer from arrival / departure noise...

This Riad is an amazing oasis in the chaotic Medina of Marrakech. It has six beautiful bedrooms, each of them decorated with a special charm. On the terrace, there are some deck-chair where you can lay and enjoy the sunset and the view of city heart and surrounding mosques.
The breakfast is delicious and plentiful. “Thé a la menthe” with some great cookies is served whenever you like to. We also had dinner (that you need to pre-order) in the fantastic courtyard. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere pretty romantic (and at a great price too)!!!
The service is really awesome. Simon and Kadija go beyond your expectations, always happy to help you with whatever you need.
I totally recommend the transfer from the airport as well since the Riad is in a small alley and not easy to find.
Before our arrival, we got an email from the general manager Cecilia with useful information and things to do before getting to the Riad.
Summing up…a wonderful Riad with awesome people in it!

Fantastic Riad. From the moment you walk into the Riad you feel relaxed. The owner is very helpful and ensure that everything you need is arranged. If you want breakfast on the terrace but then five minutes later you decided it's too hot and want it by the pool, it's no problem. The rooms were cleaned beautifully. The breakfast was plentiful and the dinner was wonderful. We will definitely be recommending it to friends.

(Probably would not recommended for a single female traveller as location is down some narrow allies, however the owner am sure could arrange safe escort to souks)

Riad Al Loune certainly lives up to expectation. The service you receive from the team, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave is amazing - attentive but not overpowering. Nothing was too much trouble. The Riad is kept in fantastic condition - beautiful toiletries provided in the bathroom. We ate at the Riad twice - pre-ordering our meal in the morning. The food was lovely and traditional and served with a glass of wine. The lovely colourful Breakfast set you up for the day. This Riad certainly offers you a serene calm base which is needed after a day in the madness of Marrakech. Congratulations Riad Al Loune!!

What an amazing place is this Riad. You can't believe that behind a door of a narrow 'derb' (allie) you will find such a beautiful building. The whole Riad is so grand and it has been decorated with such great taste. It was a pleasure to come back every day to this oasis after visiting a hectic and busy Marrakech and enjoy a ‘thé a la menthe’ in the courtyard. The place is kept spotlessly clean and in perfect condition.

Our room ‘Vert’ was incredibly beautiful, every little detail was special. Mohammed and Kadija were always eager to help and organised a lot of things for us such as reservations to restaurants and taxis.

Breakfast was excellent and abundant, and it was different every day!

I’m also very grateful for the emails I received from Cecilia, the general manager before we arrived, with very useful information. Booking our transfer from the airport to the Riad with them was a very good decision as we arrived quite late and knowing that somebody was waiting for us was really reassuring.

I would not hesitate to recommend this Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech.

Room Tip: There are only seven rooms in the Riad and they are all amazing. We chose the Vert simply because i...

This Riad is the best! We just returned as a couple and we felt so relaxed during our stay here. It's such a serene place with personal attention. You really feel like they take good care of you. The 'mama' cooks delicious! Her artichokes are out of this world!
