“Nice breakfast!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

The courtyard layout makes the windows orient towards the corridor & hence can be noisy sometimes. Leafy courtyard is an excellent place to have the fabulous breakfast. Clean toilets. Air-conditioning helps during summer. Good value for money.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

We have stayed in Le Gallia for two nights this august and enjoyed every minute of it. The roof top terrace is wonderful as are the whole building and the breakfast. The hotel is located really good right next to a big street with lots of restaurants and bars. Djema el fna is only a 5 minute walk away.

I can only recommend this place to everyone visiting Marrakech!

Very beautiful little hotel right in the middle of the medina. A short walk from both the Djemma el Fna and the Koutoubia mosque. Quiet despite the location, the inclusive breakfast of bread, croissants and coffee was fine and eaten in the decorative courtyard among birds and tortoises. Would recommend

this riad is excellent value given its cleanliness, location and great breakfast. the rooms, bathrooms, common areas are all very clean. it is a 5 min walk to the square located down a small alley off the main street leading to the square. so its a great location to be close enough but once you enter, its truly a quiet respite from all that is Marrakech, you'll be needing your quiet get away! breakfast is excellent, its the same Moroccan fare of breads, butter, jam, fresh OJ and coffee, but the friendly ladies make your breads(msmemen, crumpet style pancakes etc) FRESH every day. Relaxing common area with tv and sunny terrace. Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Easy going well established place that runs smoothly and efficiently.

Great place to stay with wonderful moroccon style interior, very clean. Just one Internet PC but also free wifi at reception. A double room ensuite is about 220 to 250 DH depending on your bargaining skills and the area is a bit run down.

Le Gallia is a reasonably priced, peaceful and fairly comfortable riad, 2 minutes walk from Djamaa el Fna Square. Spotlessly clean. Satisfactory breakfast. Rooms look out onto two pretty central courtyards. Rooms a bit dull and drab with little natural light especailly on the ground foor, but this help keeps them cool in the summer I'd imagine, and there is aircon. Breakfast was served in the pleasnt inner courtyards. Not much of a view from the rooftop terrrace, but a lovely place to sit out. The staff are not shy in asking for a tip for routine service.

For approx $40 USD, I was very happy with this riad, where I stayed for 5 nights. It's very easy to find the riad from the main square, which is definitely not the case for many other riads. I was in town for a wedding and a lot of my friends were constantly getting lost and having to get taxis or pay kids to guide them back to their riad. The rooms were cleaned daily - mostly very thoroughly although sometimes it was a bit spotty. The breakfast is excellent, and the courtyard and roof deck are beautiful.

The main problem I had with the riad is that I came back very late one night after the wedding and the night staff was extremely angry and rude at having been woken up. A few nights later I asked for a wake-up call to be sure I would make my flight out, and he was again very discourteous about it. They don't have an official curfew, but acted quite put out at needing to provide these standard services.

Also, don't ask the riad staff to get you any taxis. You can get a much better price if you walk a block to the taxi stand and negotiate yourself.
