“Feeling home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We had a wonderful time in Riad 41 due to Marina and Mark who were so helpful and friendly and made us feeling like home. It's a perfect place to calm down and relax in the heart of the medina - especcially at the wonderful terrace at the top. The staff of Riad 41 Amina and Mohammed are amazing and make you feel like a king. The Riad is wonderful decorated, you can have tea in front of the fire, the lovely cat gucci on your sapling, while listening to fine music - everything fits perfect The room on the terrace is a small lovely nest to resile. We want to thank you all for your hospitality and we are sure, that we will come back!

What can I say about Riad 41! The adjective "amazing" cannot enclose all graceful feelings we have experimented in this magnificent Riad. Catapulted from modernity to the dreaming tale of Marrakesh, we passed through alleys crowded by the colourful inhabitants of Medina until we reached this oasis of peace. Then, another vision has been disclosed to our minds: intimate, warm and elegant Riad 41 hugged our souls. All the staff was superb; Mark and Marina, the supervisors of the guesthouse, were incomparable and helped us to make our stay as pleasing as possible. Not forgetting the attentions of Amina, the most amazing Moroccan woman I have ever met, her mint tea was always served with her delicious home-made biscuits. We really miss them all, Hopping to come back again, inshallah!

Outstanding Riad in every respect and we can not recommend it highly enough.

From dawn until dusk (and between) you are exceptionally well looked after. Being upgraded on arrival to suite 2 was a very welcome surprise. The breakfast was delicious and the evening meal we had there was the best meal we had in Marrakech by a long way. The Riad was stunning and certainly lived up to the pictures. The attention to detail in the Riad is outstanding (hats & towels laid out each day on the sun loungers on the terrace, tea lights in the room are lit each night etc). In terms of location it is ideal – you are only 5 mins from the main square and in easy walking distance of a vast majority of the places to visit. As it is just short walk off a main street it very quiet and welcome haven from the hustle bustle

All the staff at riad 41 are superb – friendly, considerate and with exacting standards. Nothing was too much trouble and we were always meet with a warm welcome. They were happy to organise taxis, day trips and book restaurants for you. All in all Riad 41 helped to make our trip to Marrakech one of the best trips we’ve been on.

Room Tip: Suite 2 was amazing! The light in the room was stunning

staff -> very friendly and supportive, more friends than hosts
location -> in the heart of the Medina but still calm
atmosphere -> very charming decoration
room -> we were in suite 1, but all rooms are decorated with a true sense of details

We will definitely return and choose the RIAD 41 for accomodation !!!!

Room Tip: ask for the shuttle arrangement to pick you up at the airport in advance. It is not far, but Taxi is...

Riad 41 is an amazing place and Mark is really a gentleman and very helpful.
Everything was perfect the breakfast, the place, the service and the position just 5 minutes from Jāmiʿ el-Fnā!
The room and the bathroom on the terrace are small but everything is well kept.
Thanks a lot riad 41 for your hospitality!

After originally having planned to stay in Marrekech for 2 nights we endend up staying there for 4 nights, as both the city itself but expecially the Riad 41 were just great. The location of the riad right in the heart of the medina but still in a quiet side street is just perfect. It is beautifully decorated with an amazing attention to detail. The rooms as well as the rooftop terrace with an amazing view over the city were fabulous. Riad 41 is like a quiet oasis in the middle of a loud and busy but yet beautiful and athmospheric city. Mark and his staff took great care of us, prepared great food, recommended wonderful restaurants and even took us there as well as everywhere else we wanted to go. There was nothing too much to ask. They definitely make you feel more than welcome and at home. No, even better than at home, because actually, when you're there you don't want to go back! We can't recommend our Riad 41 highly enough! And Mark, be sure we'll come back as soon as possible!!!! Keep our Aladdin's Nest ready for us...

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!
