“Truly stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I cannot recommend Riad 41 highly enough! Having travelled extensively, I must say that my experience at Riad 41 has been the most memorable travel experience to date. Truly exquisite! So beautifully and stylishly decorated with such attention to detail, peacefully quiet, and perfectly clean, I have never stayed somewhere with such delightful ambience. Riad 41 is a luxurious oasis that will not fail to impress. From the moment we arrived, Mark and the staff made us feel most welcome and nothing was too much to ask for. The service was impeccable! Mark was the most delightful host with exceptional knowledge of the area and his recommendations enabled the most of the visit. Everything the riad has to offer, the beautiful rooms to the stunning rooftop terrace to the dining room to the peaceful study to the delicious food to the relaxing massages, were all exceptional! Riad 41 is a true paradise! Words cannot describe my amazing experience in Marrakech, all due to Riad 41!

From the delicate scent of incense and the calming mint tea upon arrival, to the breathtaking views and luxurious furnishings of the roof top terrace- this is guest house that will not fail to impress. Mark and his team were very kind and thoughtful; nothing was too much trouble for them and the attention to detail in the rooms and communal areas was exceptional.

We stayed at the Riad for the first and last nights of our trip. Both myself and my boyfriend looked forward to returning to this little piece of paradise amongst the bustle of Marrakech and it was the perfect place to spend our last night, with a cold drink in hand and the starry Moroccan skies above us.

Room Tip: The Suite 4 (Aladdin's den) was very cosy and well decorated. Amazing to open the shutters onto...

We stayed for 5 days and were looked after very well. Riad 41 is very beautiful. All the staff are extremely attentive and helpful. It is very central in the medina, and Mark and the staff are very helpful with booking things, getting you to places and looking after you. The décor is stunning, and food and refreshments are fantastic. 5 star!!!!

Room Tip: Suite 2.........

I stayed here in the beginning of March with my mother, and it was a pleasure. The Riad 41 is a very beautiful little oasis in the Marrakech medina. It is located about 5 min from Djema el Fna in the Kennaria - in other words perfect location. The interior and design is exquisite and the moroccan staff working there are really attentive and nice - a huge thanks to Nordine, Mustapha, Rachid and Zakia who showed us perfect service and made our stay even greater.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, and we were upgraded from Suite 3 to Suite 1 which was a very nice thing. S...

We visit Marrakesh last February, with some opinions of friends that they had spent bad time during their visit to the city but, thanks to Mark, Marco and their team, besides the wonderful building that is the Riad 41 itself, they made us feel great as visiting family, confortably as if we were at home and very safe regarding the whole visit.
Warmness, good taste and feel supported is in few words the felling of our visit.
No doubt to come back to Riad 41 and say hello to our friends.

Room Tip: Make a plan with friends to fill the Riad as it has just 4 bedrroms.

The Riad41 motto reads, "It is our ultimate goal to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and completely at ease. As you are our guest, we want to assure you that we are here to fulfill your every wish and we will endeavour to meet your every requirement"

The Riad41 did not only live up to this promise, but excelled in it in every possible way - truly unforgettable!!

To Mark, Marco and the wonderful team at Riad41, thank you for giving me this experience.

Stayed here in January and had the best time. It is peaceful and there is nothing that Mark and the team leave you wanting. A truly exceptional place.
Very stylishly decorated, very comfortable and felt like home...well, actually a lot better than being at home! The food here is delicious too. Loved the roof terrace where there are sun loungers and a little platform right at the top of the riad where you get an incredible view of the city by day and night. This is truly a jewel.
The staff were so helpful with pointing in us in the right direction and walking us to local spots when we weren't sure which direction to go in, booking restaurants, and any number of requests. Great location in the medina and was really quiet too. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautifully decorated (we had a look at each one!) and just vary in size so really...
