“An cool oasis of calm in the middle of the mystical medina of Marrakech.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Winding your way down the magical narrow streets with concierge in tow to take care of your luggage you are greeted by your hosts as you enter into the sanctuary of Riad144.

The regular cares of work and life wash away as you relax into a delectable Moroccan afternoon tea on the terrace and become accustomed to the tranquil lifestyle you will adopt for the duration of your stay.

Vivienne and Jean, together with their discreet and excellent team of staff are the most perfect hosts, ensuring your every desire is met - whether it be an incredible Hammam upstairs followed by the most relaxing massage experience you have ever had, housekeeper and chef Touria's mind-blowingly-delicious tagines served above the rooftops of the Medina whilst listening to the soft chanting of prayers, softly swaying in a rooftop Hammock - day or night, cooling down in the plunge pool, early evening apéro in the courtyard - or whilst still in the pool!, or playing with Tobias and Eduard - 144's resident Tortoise.

Each of the exquisite rooms have been designed as a labor of love and combine Moroccan influences together with touches of French and Madagascan taken from both Jean's and Vivienne's colourful tapestry. The suites are vast and scattered with interesting finds and books where you can sit whilst soft white voiles gently sway in the scented breezes that circulate the Riad.

Riad 144 is our favourite boutique escape in Marakech for those with a love of great design, stunning surroundings and a home from home ambiance.

PS Don't forget to sample Vivienne's chili tapenade, you will never have tasted anything quite like it.

Room Tip: If The Beldi or Secret Suite are available - you simply must!

From the moment we arrived at Riad 144, every effort was made to make us feel welcome. The charming host Jean and his friendly staff certainly have an eye for detail and they continuously went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy and that all our needs were accommodated.

The Riad itself is absolutely gorgeous and it is obvious that a lot of love and effort has been put into it. The interior is lush and the rooms are breathtaking; each of them spacious, very nicely decorated and comfortable.

Even though Riad 144 is conveniently located right in the middle of the busy Medina, the inside is a peaceful haven. When it gets too hot, a dip in the plunge pool on the patio is the perfect way to cool off. During our stay, we also enjoyed a relaxing massages from a very friendly and professional masseuse and I would encourage anyone to do the same.

I would highly recommend Riad 144 to anyone who is visiting Marrakech and who is looking for a place to stay that offers excellent service and comfort in an intimate environment. I loved every second of my time there and have no doubt that I will be returning very soon!

Riad 144 is a stunning place 2 stay people. The view, the owners,the rooms. The owners are good friends and are neighbours of mine. I live in ( Amsterdam) Marrakech for 2 years now and a couple of weeks ago i was there with some friend of mine. We had such a nice time at Riad 144. They not only treated me as a king but also my friends. I left Marrakech before my fiends left for London and it is so good to hear that they had the best time of their lives in Riad 144.Trust me it is worth it 2 stay at Riad 144. And thank you Jean. Riad 144 Rocks !!!!! xxx Avi

Room Tip: Guests ask for the hidden room with the blue light. You will never forget it. I love that room.

I spent my most beautiful birthday at the RIAD 144 (and it was already my 46th birhtday). The owners have organised a marvellous party like in 1001 night. We were a group of 22 friends and each of us loved to be in the Riad and we enjoyed the warm atmosphere like being at home. All of us are looking forward to go back there and for my 50th birhtday it is already booked to celebrate it in the Riad 144.

This was with no doubt the perfect choice. Riad 144 was just perfect, and the service excellent. We were able get into the true Marrakech atmosphere at this wonderful Riad, located in the heart of the Medina, but just out of the busy souk steets.
The Riad has been newly remodeled, every room in a different style, , every detail covered. Of course very clean, and confortable beds. The common areas in the Riad were great, the inside patio with the swimming pool, the terrace in front of our room,but specially the top terrace with 360 degree views of the Medina, perfect spot to sit in the sun or relax.
The service was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. First they arranged for transportation from the airport. We felt welcomed, and Jean, the host, personally showed us around how to find our way through the laberinthic Medina. He recommended the best places to visit, and the best Restaurants( they were all unique). But after trying homemade cooking at the riad you also feel like staying for dinner. You go out to fell the atmosphere in Marrakech, but you wont find better food. Breakfast was absolutely delicious.
And the Hammam experience, well you have to try it... And the massage was great.
All the extras( transportation, dinners, hammam,massages) had very reasonable prices.
Thank you so much Jean for your attention, we were very lucky to meet Stale too( specially for his great cocktails and his recommendations for our next trip to Norway). We really felt as if we had stayed with friends.
We will surely come back!!!!!!!!!!

Riad 144 is a wonderful place to experience Marrakech. Jean is a fabulous host who will help you to navigate the medina as well as offer insight on anything you may need to know. (If you have not been to Marrakech before-this is invaluable). He is a wonderful man who truly has a passion for Marrakech. The Riad itself is gorgeous, and any room you choose will be a treat. We stayed in the secret suite which was perfect for our family with children. We both had separate areas but the rooms were connected. I especially loved the huge luxurious bathtub in the master bedroom which was most welcome after a previous night in the desert. The suite has a lovely shower area as well. The beds were really comfy and the room was very quiet. We slept very well. We had dinner at the riad which was our best meal in Morocco. The food, the company, the setting- all were amazing. Just writing this -I want to go back.

Room Tip: Secret suite is perfect for families. It is a beautiful two room suite where we had our own area se...
