“Friendly Riad in the Heart of Marrakech's Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I have just returned from Marrakech where I stayed at Riad Aloes for a week. I chose Riad Aloes due to its location, price, and a VITAL small pool to lounge in. The riad is difficult to find without help, and is situated just off Rue Sidi el Yamani. If coming by taxi from the airport, DO NOT get ripped off by the taxi drivers; you can get a ride for less than 200 dhirams easily. The Riad itself is really lovely, with air conditioned rooms and solar panel heated showers, a patio area in the middle with small pool/jacuzzi and a roof terrace with shaded loungers. The staff are all so helpful, with Olivier the owner always willing to help, the lovely Mustafah on night shifts and a fantastic cleaner. Location is great, just a few minutes walk to the main square.

With fantastic value to top off the impressive accommodation, Riad Aloes is a hotel that I would highly recommend.

My friend and I stayed for 1 week in July/August 2013. The riad is really close to the main square and on a side street so it is quiet. We got a really warm welcome with tea and Olivier and his team were always very friendly and chatted away to us. Our room was really comfortable and cool with a fan and air conditioning (we needed it!) and it was really good in the July heat to have the cool jacuzzi to dip into. The breakfasts were freshly prepared each day for us and it was always something different- crepes, fresh bread, pain au chocolat, as well as fresh fruit and yoghurt; we could eat on the terrace in the sun or indoors under the shade of the huge palm tree. I would definitely recommend this Riad- our friends were very jealous, and we will definitely be visiting again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Jasmin suite which was lovely

Stayed here for 3 nights during Ramadan. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Jemma el fna which was great! The pool is refreshing and a must as a cool down from the 40 degree heat! The roof terrace was beautiful and well kept! The host was very friendly and always there to help! For the price I would recommended this riad to anyone!

Stayed here for three nights in July 2013 during Ramadan. Picked up by taxi arranged by Olivier from the riad. We would never have found it by ourselves. Tucked away in a small alley close to the markets. Room was authentic Morrocan and was excellent, It was situated on the ground floor - Hibiscus. The breakfasts were served on the roof terrace and were delicious. Used the small pool/jacuzzi regularly to cool down and chill out under the beautiful banana trees. Olivier arranged the taxi for a day out to the Atlas mountains. He was extremely attentive and always available to answer any questions we had. No hesitation in recommending this beautiful riad.

Room Tip: Hibiscus was on the ground floor facing the courtyard and only a few steps from the small pool/jacuz...

A charming riad in the medina, a very easy ten minute walk to Djemaa el Fna. The rooms, which are set around a beautiful courtyard., are comfortable and immaculate. The breakfast is very good. Everyone was very helpful and very pleasant. Definitely would recommend this riad.

Room Tip: All rooms face the courtyard, and all are excellent.

We stayed 4 nights in March2013 and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were ever so helpful, nothing was too much of problem. They prepared ealy breakfasts for us on a couple of days as we had to set off early for our trip to the mountains and then to the coast. We were also greeted with sweets and mint tea on our arrival which was a nice touch. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms as we were planning to spend most of the time out and about.The room was clean and comfortable with nice tiled bathroom. Bed was very comfy and we had good night sleeps. We had breakfast on the terrace and liked to chill out there after our trips in the afternoons.The riad is located very close to souks and the main square. Overall, very happy with the stay and would recommed to others.

What an excellent place, arrived at 23.30 and was greeted at the door by a most pleasant lady who showed us to a most delightful and authentic Moroccan room. Then we were offered a drink
and relaxed by the petit pool/Jacuzzi under the giant leaves of the banana tree ahhh!!
In the morning we found that we were so close to the square and all the must see sites, perfect!
Hot water flowed in the shower +, could do with a fixing point for the shower head.
When we left there was no pain in the bill...
Stay you will not be disappointed.
