“Friendly, clean, new, quiet, and sooo convenient...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights before our desert tour. Conveniently 5 minutes from the square, very easy to find. Run by the friendliest couple. We stayed in the suite, which was fantastic. Spacious, clean, great bathroom & shower. Strong airconditioner. And very, very quiet. The decor is a modern Moroccan, and very tasteful. They have a private hammam & spa, which was great value and oh-so-fun and relaxing. Had dinner our first night, which was delicious. They also stocked pretty good bottles of Moroccan wine (get a bottle of their white wine!!!) But the star of this estabilishment is the night caretaker, Aziz. The highlight of our stay was chatting it up with Aziz on their great rooftop deck after dinner on our last night, learning about each others lives, cultures, aspirations.

This is an up & coming riad, folks. Great value. Book them before they get too popular.

I would recommend this riad to anyone wanting to stay in the medina on their first visit to Marrakech.
We were met at Cafe de France by Aziz (one of the staff), this eliminated the stressful haggling with an unofficial guide when tired.
We then met Sharif (the owner) who took us in and made us mint tea while introducing us to his wife Monique. Unfortunately we speak very little French and they little English but we were made to feel very welcome nonetheless.
Aziz returned later to give us a properly useful map and an explanation of how to get to the various attractions of the city.
His English is very good and loves to chat so he can practise, which was lovely.
He made us feel much more comfortable in Marrakech than we had on our initial night (at a different Riad, before heading to Imlil and Essaouira).
Riad Mirage has it's own hammam which we enjoyed on our last night before heading out for dinner.
It is modern and bright with sumptuous, elegant bedrooms, friendly staff/ owners, a lovely roof terrace (where we had breakfasts) and it serves alcohol :)
There is also a hot tub on the roof terrace.
All in all, a really nice place to stay.

My wife and I stayed in this delightful riad for 4 nights, one before the tour we were undertaking and then three nights at the end of our stay in Morocco. The owners are so helpful and friendly but it does help if you can speak un peu de francais.
The riad's location in the medina is ideally situated and just a 5 minute stroll from the main square where all the main action takes place. It is tucked away down one of the medina's alleys and offers a restful and quiet night's sleep. It also offers an excellent and very reasonably priced cuisine. We ate all our meals there and enjoyed every single one.
We stayed in one of the very comfortable suites.
This riad is a little gem. I highly recommend it.

Myself and my husband were a little worried when we were walking through the small and quiet lane to ge to this Riad.
But of course when we get inside the riad, we were pleasantly surprised by how bright and lovely the place is.
The couple who own the Riad speak very little English but they are very friendly and tried very hard to communicate with us to ensure we are comfortable.

Riad Mirage ticked all the boxes - great location a hop and skip to the souks and square, beautiful rooms, great food and hospitable staff. It was an oasis in the heart of the medina offering solace and refuge from the hot afternoon sun. We had our dinners in the riad as well and the food was fantastic! The owners and the wait staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. The hammam and massage in the riad are also must do. Definitely recommended!

My husband and I went to Morocco in July. We started off by staying at Riad Mirage for our first night. After walking through the craziness of the Medina, Riad Mirage was like our little safe haven. The little place tucked away from the big city. As you arrive to the Riad, you have walked through an alley and I was thinking to myself....what lies behind this door?? We were welcomed in by the friendly staff with some nice refreshing cold drinking water. Which was great after being out in the scorching heat. The atmosphere was calm and quiet. Very relaxing. It was decorated beautifully. And we couldn't be more happier to see that our room had AC. Later that evening, we met the owners and the night staff. The owners spoke French, but with the help of Aziz (the night staff) and with my husband knowing a little french himself. We were able to communicate just fine. They were all so very friendly and very attentive to our needs. We had over slept, because of the time change. But Aziz, was very nice and made arrangements to have our breakfast ready before we had to leave on our journey through Morocco. As we left, I was thrilled to know we were coming back to stay a few more nights before we left for home. When we arrived back to the Riad after about four days gone. We were greeted by the same friendly staff. It was like walking into home. We spent the next few days/nights getting to know the owners and Aziz. And had the best time. Very knowledgeable people. As we said our good-byes, I was sadden to leave. I felt like part of their family. I would definitely recommend Riad Mirage to any and everyone going to Marrakesh! On top of it all...the location of the Riad is in a great location inside the Medina. Just minutes away from all the excitement. :)

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Riad Mirage in August for 7 nights and if I had to recommend a place to stay in Marrakech surely would be it.
From the moment the owners we were picked up at the airport we were always followed with care. The environment is really very nice, clean and with stunning rooms. The Riad is situated in a central location, 2 minutes from the square Jam El Fna, very easy to move and to move every night. Despite the proximity inside the Riad enjoyed high peace. From the terrace in the evening you can hear the beautiful songs of prayer in the air.
The breakfasts and dinners at the riad were very good and plentiful, good pizza and grilled fish.
The guy who works at the riad, Aziz gave us all the necessary information about Marrakech, what to visit and how to move in the city, as well as advice on how to make our purchases. He has been our partner for the English language, always very polite and helpful made ​​us company on several occasions telling us a bit 'of their traditions.
If you wish to make a day trip or stay in characteristic places ask their advice and will organize everything according to your desire.
Could not have chosen better location! Could not have chosen better location!
