“Better than Average, but not Very Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We spent three nights at Riad Mirage. The staff is very good and the location is great. The room itself was beautiful - on the ground floor and opened into the courtyard where folks had breakfast. I booked something with "a balcony" for a few extra bucks and we got the courtyard. It was very nice, but... we heard the door bell ring whenever anyone came in late - which was often - or when folks had early breakfast. And, it was quite warm. The first night is was very humid, almost too much for me. Each night we had to open our doors to the courtyard to get any air, which was a little awkward. The breakfast was bread and coffee/tea only. A little less than I expected for the price.

Like a previous reviewer, we were due to stay at Riad Amiris. On the day we were due to arrive we were offered a free upgrade to Riad Mirage due to a cancellation. For the price we paid the hotel was excellent.
We arrive at the airport to be greeted by the bus the hotel had sent (we had booked it for a mere 15 euros) and were then greeted by a worker of the hotel about 100m from the riad. The worker was named Mohamed and he was very helpful. He took us to the riad, showed us our rooms and then spent about an hour telling us about Marrakech including giving us a map and telling us the best destinations. In general the recommendations were spot on except a restaurant named Cafe de France (see previous review).
All in all the hotel was great value, very clean and the breakfast included was reasonable.

I came to Marrakech for 5 days with a group of girls. We were meant to stay at the Riad Amaris but got upgraded to this (same owners).

It's a beautiful place to stay. The room is simple but everything you need. It is nice that it is small so only a few guests in one place. The food is delicious and cooked fresh for you, the chicken tagine here is a must. Location is close to Jemma El fna square so not far from the market and souks.

Mohammed our guide was a blessing. Always helping us with any questions or if we got lost! He also provided us with an essential map.

I highly recommend having a traditional hammam. Such an experience and good value for money. This can be organised through the Riad.

As a group of young girls we were seen as an easy target while shopping and general walking around. Just make sure you stand your ground or say no and walk away.

This Raid is so much nicer than the Riad de la Semaine (a few blocks down from this one)which we spent two nights a few days ago. Even though they have the same owner it is run a bit differently. The rooms are much bigger and atmosphere is just so much more pleasant. The owner was here and we enjoyed very much meeting her.
First impression when you walk in usually makes a big difference in how you like the place. This is a good one.
This Raid bathroom has a blow dryer, soft down comforter and a working air conditioner/heater.
You may need to shower quickly or you run out of hot water for the second person.
Breakfast has fresh orange juice, Danone yogurt (the other one dont have, not even enough coffee), French baguette, and Moroccan pancakes.

Room Tip: number of people determines what room you are going to get. It's a Raid, there aren't so ma...

Riad Mirage was close to the square. The hostess is French speaking so it is a bit tricky at times if English is your only language. The breakfast became boring with bread and more bread and wrapped plastic cheese. I felt safe returning late in the evening after dining out. The Riad was spotlessly clean. The roof terrace was a great space. The pool was dirty and the in house Hammam was not working? Ayoub the Moroccan male house manager speaks English and was very helpful

RIAD MIRAGE - This well located Riad, about 5 minutes from Djemaa el-Fna Square, was very pleasant. It was a very French experience, including the breakfast, although they added some eggs for the last 2 days. The hostess is a primarily French speaker, so brush up your high school language skills. Our nice clean room was directly over the medina street so it was rather noisy at night for a few hours. Ask the hostess to recommend you to experience the very nice French restaurant nearby that she took us to and we ate there several times.

Stayed at here for two nights and it was a great end to our morocco tour! Lovely terrace to relax from the busy streets, clean rooms, fantastic breakfast and a great location. Felt that all our belongings were safe and staff was friendly! Would recommend to family, friends or stay here again for sure!!
