“A GEM AND WE LOVED IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Situated less than a 10 minute walk from all the exciting action in the market square and souk but set in a secluded and quiet lane, this riyad is owned and run by the delightful Gabrielle. She has developed both the building itself and the whole concept over the past 15 years, puting her individual stamp both on the decor and with a small staff, on the day to day running of this charming and attractive small riyad of 7 rooms.

Our air-conditioned/centrally heated room was a delight with a comfortable bed and room furniture, an attractive en-suite bathroom containing a complete range of toiletries as well as dressing gowns and slippers, not forgetting tea and coffee making facilities and a hair dryer. Free wi-fi is available throughout together with satellite television for those that want it.

The whole riyad provides a relaxing and comfortable oasis away from the bustle and hustle of Marrakech, with a swimming pool (a bit cold in February), courtyards, balconies and terraces. A tasty and complete breakfast was served on one of the terraces by her attentive staff. We could not fault any part of our, unfortunately short stay of only 2 nights and we would love to return. Thank you Gabrielle and your staff.

Room Tip: They are all delightful - you won't be disappointed.

An absolute haven- so peaceful and beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff. It was like being in someone's house but we were left alone to do whatever we wanted. Only 7 double rooms. Everything you could want in the room- air conditioning, gorgeous en suite shower room- fully equipped with hair dryer,shower cream,shampoo,body lotion,cotton wool pads,cotton buds and tissues. Towels, dressing gown, slippers etc, all provided. We ate breakfast and dinner on one of the roof terraces, which were wonderful. The food was also outstanding and beautifully presented. There is also a lovely pool. Really recommend it.

This was our first expereience of Moroccan hotels and it set a high standard. From the warm welcome even when we arrived at midnight to the delicious breakfast on the roof terrace and equally wonderful sunset, it couldn't have been bettered. Quite easy access by car and our room was very comfortable and well equipped.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in this beautiful riad at the end of a wonderful trip around Morocco. It is an extremely comfortable riad with only 9 rooms,each one different and designed in a traditional but modern way. The atmosphere is one of calm and comfort. The food was particularly good. We had eaten out in several expensive restaurants in Marrakech earlier in our holiday but the food in the Riad Noga beat them all! I could go on and on- the pool, sun terraces, comfortable beds, the lovely parrot and 2 tortoises!! It was lovely.

This Riad is lovely, it's set at the end of a tall, narrow, typical marrakech street so arriving at 11pm was quite nerve wracking but once inside it's paradise. Breakfast can be taken on the roof in the sun, where there are also loungers for bathing and we had a wonderful dinner in the courtyard. The pool is great and gets the sun and the shade - it's in the centre of the Riad and makes you feel a million miles from anywhere! The staff were friendly and really helpful - we had never been to Marrakech before so they pointed us in the right direction. It is about a 10 min walk to the main square where there are plenty of restaurants, outdoor market and souks - which as perfect for our 3 night stay for sightseeing. We walked to and from the square at all hours of the day including late in to the evening and felt safe doing the walk even though when you first arrive its quite overwhelming. The room we had was traditional and comfortable and ensuite was great with amazing ceiling feature and very good walk in shower. I'd really recommend this Riad if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Marrakech.

From the welcome cup of tea to allowing us to check out very late they made every moment of our stay a joy. Friendly staff who never stopped smiling and made us feel right at home. Great food. Way too much food at breakfast so that we never finished it. Breakfast on the terrace and superb dinners in the dining room. Our room (the Grey room) was comfortable and clean. All in all a great little place to stay. Only minutes away from the madness of the Medina but a real gem of a place to relax in peace. Highly recommended. Watch out for the tortoises!

Heard about this gem via an article in the Guardian. Every aspect of our Riad Noga experience was perfect and we certainly go again. We loved every minute of our stay.
