“A Relaxing Retreat in a Hectic City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Jean was the perfect host and the Riad was beautiful. The Riad offers a peaceful paradise in the middle of a busy city.

The service from Jean and the other employees was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble to ask for. You can arrange transfers, massages and dinner at the Riad.

Jean was happy to show us the easiest and most direct way into the main square in Marrakech which was helpful. Jean also arranged a meal one evening for us, the other evenings we ate out at his recommendation at a wonderful restaurant in the city centre.

The design of the rooms is down to the finest detail encompassing comfort and relaxation with stunning Moroccan design.

We will definitely return here, and have already recommended it highly to our friends and family.

This was our first time in Marrakech and every aspect of our stay was truly delightful. Jean, the owner and host had organised our airport transfers and met us from the taxi. He took the time to show us the easiest route in and out of the Medina, which would prove to be a huge help for the days to come - it can be very easy to get lost.

Arriving at the Riad after a day of travelling was one of the highlights of our trip. I am struggling how to describe quite how beautiful it is is - Jean has thought of every possible detail. His eye for design is just amazing, beautiful books, candlelight, great music - just a wonderful atmosphere where you feel as if you have escaped from every stress of life and the outside world.

We stayed in the Secret Suite - such a romantic multi-layered room with a huge, elevated bath-tub surrounded by beautiful Moroccan lanterns. You couldn't wish for a better standard of comfort, the rooms are spotless, there is complementary wifi and bottled water, good air-con, comfy beds. The Riad reaches every expectation of European standards with the elegance and beauty of Moroccan design.

Jean makes you feel as if the Riad is your home. You can roam around freely - sunbathe on the terrace and order in house-dining if you wish. He will tell you where to shop, where to eat, how to bargain and will even organise you a private traditional bath and massage in the Riad's own beautiful Hammam. We only stayed for three days but wished that we had allowed longer just to have more time relaxing in the Riad. It truly is a little paradise and we cannot wait to return.

I honestly don't know where to begin my review of Riad 144, was it the exceptional service, the amazing food,This place is one of the best riads in Marrakech. I was there for only two night, unfortunately, but that was so relaxing and much needed after having traveled for a week already.

The fact we have returned to Marrakech in less than 6months was partly due to this amazing Riad and the service we received last time.

This time we returned with friends from Boston and yet again had a seamlessly lovely stay.

Jean, the owner, was forever charming, helpful and a joy just to chat to. We arrived on our first evening with another amazing meal prepared for us and set out on the stunning rooftop terrace with twinkling lanterns and a beautifully decorated table. The quality of food served was, again, one of our best meals during our 4 day stay.

This time we stayed in the Beldi Suite which was a delight. Cool, beautifully designed and an absolute pleasure.

We were all actually surprised at how comfortable the weather was considering you read so many reports that August is unbearably hot.

Jean again organised for the driver to take us on a day trip - this time to the Kasbah du Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains with a stop off at Richard Branson's Riad Tamadot for a hammam and afternoon cocktails.

Jean knows all the best places to eat and drink and used his contacts to get us on reservation lists and tables.

We shall be returning - thank you Jean

we rented out the whole riad for the 12 of us. It was absolutely stunning! Perfect location for us. Very close to all the tourist sites but the actual riad was situated in a more residential area. It was beautiful inside, quiet serene calm and very very clean. The breakfast on the terrace was lovely, apart from the buzzing of wasps as we had such lovely homemade jam and honey on our table! Would next time take breakfast in the courtyard, or better yet in the bedroom. The top terrace was stunning. Views were lovely, but most importantly the sunbeds and hammock was comfy!

Jean and all the staff were fab, so accommodating and really made our holiday special. Abdul is such a fun person to be around and gives brilliant service that i havent experienced elsewhere.

All in all, come here if you are going to Marrakech. Beautiful clean riad coupled with excellent staff makes is all that special!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful but the The Royal Moucharabieh Suite is the best.

The best place to be.
Not only to sleep, but also to eat. Jean, Abdul and Touriya thank you so much!
The Hammam was heaven. The Wifi connection perfect. The rooftop breath taking

Riad 144 exceeded our expectations. The owner Jean is one of the most helpful and genuine guys on the planet and he enhanced our stay with good food recommendations as well as helping to chart our other trips around Morocco. We felt very much at home in Riad 144 which is beautifully decorated. I would strongly recommend Riad 144 to anyone seeking a unique experience in Marrakech.
