“Terrific new place in Marrakech; easy to find too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

We picked the Riad le Rubis among hundreds of riads in Marrakech because it was newly opened in 2011, it was recommended to us by our desert tour guide, and Philippe the owner, offered a very decent discount rate. We were not disappointed. Once you're oriented to it, it is not at all difficult to find, as it's very close to the Jemaa el Fna, perfect for hanging out in the square or orienting yourself to Marrakech's shopping scene.

We rented two rooms, the Jemaa el Fna Suite and the Ruby Suite. Both were well-appointed with comfortable beds, a wardrobe for clothes, nice colorful windows and doors, and baths with hair dryer and plenty of hot water. The large mirrors in each room are a nice touch that made the rooms seem even larger. Both rooms had air con/heaters and for our January stay, both heaters could have worked slightly better, but we were not uncomfortable. All spaces and the stairwells were very clean.

The ground floor foyer area has a lovely serene dipping pool which was WAY too cool in January but could be awesome on hot summer days. In January, the foyer and breakfast areas could have used a patio or other type of heater to take away some of the chill.

On our arrival, we enjoyed a Royal Couscous meal on the beautiful rooftop terrace that overlooks the Jemaa el Fna and looks to the Atlas Mountains in the distance. Awesome views! The meal was delicious and very graciously served by Hassan, who took care of all our needs on our 2-night stay. Philippe, the owner, was not on-site while we were there, but he phoned on our arrival and followed up with us by email after our departure. I consider that to be sign of an owner who cares and wants his riad to be the best that it can.

I would highly recommend Riad le Rubis and hope that my first feedback on TripAdvisor will prod others to check it out for a stay in Marrakech. Good luck, Philippe!

Room Tip: The Jemaa al Fna Suite is special because it has direct access to the rooftop terrace, but all rooms...
