“Lovely terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We have stayed quite a few times over the years in Hotel Sherazade - it's the one we come back to. Why? Perfect location - a couple of minutes walk from the square. Easy to find - in the Medina down a quiet street. The staff are friendly and helpful. The terrace is beautiful. You can sit out and look over the rooftops to the mountains. As much bread, eggs, jam and coffee as you can eat for breakfast. Yes - you can save a few dirhams by going to the square to eat, but you're paying for the convenience and the peace and quiet.

Reading the other reviews here before posting my own has made it clear to me that some people - particularly those new to Morocco - could do with some basic info before choosing to stay in this lovely place. So here goes: firstly, this is an old house. In fact it's two old houses joined together. That means there's quite a few stairs - so if you need a lift or can't carry your own luggage this probably isn't the place for you.

Secondly, the Sherazade is right in the middle of the city, so you will - emphasis - hear the call to prayer. No good moaning about it - put your ear plugs in or just get up early.

Thirdly, there are a whole range of rooms, which you can see by checking the hotel's own website. You can book the one you want by emailing the hotel direct via their website. Prices range from 180 DH-690DH, excl breakfast, depending on the room. There seems to be a bit of room for negotiation if they're not busy. Which room you choose will depend on the season. The lower rooms which look out on the internal courtyard will be cooler in summer. Personally I like the small rooms on the terrace, but then I don't mind a shared bathroom and I'm never here in the height of the summer.

Lastly, this is Morocco so you will be a target for touts, especially if you have just arrived and are getting your bearings. Print out a map before you go and have a look at Google maps. No need to book a taxi - there are plenty at the airport or a regular bus which is marginally cheaper. They'll drop you at far side of the entrance to the square then you'll have to walk across and down Rue Zitoune. If you choose to employ a man with a handcart to carry your luggage he'll want paying.

I've already been in Marrakech few times, but never felt so welcome like when I stayed in Hotel Sherazade. The atmosphere of this place makes you feel like at home. The staff is very welcoming and very helpful.

I have been in Morocco many times, in many cities, many hotels, hostels and riads, but for the first time me and my group, we were welcomed with delicious mint tea, that was served by tres sympathique & charming Bachir.

We were tired after the whole day in travel and the tea with welcoming smiles and incredible atmosphere of this place made as LOVE it from the first sight!

I can recommend Hotel Sherazade to those who are looking peaceful and relaxing place and wanna be in the medina in the same time.

Riad itself is a piece of art. Every element of decoration gives you this real Moroccan magic atmosphere. Every corner is small piece of art. Rooms are comfortable and prepared with taste. And what was very important for us (february)- warm in cold winter nights.

Bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. The water is hot and everything is working. In case you need something the staff will provide you any kind of help and advice you want.

We wanted to say a big "CHOKRAN" to Bachir especially who take care of our group and was our guide for the evenings in medina.

Lovely place with wonderful spirit. I would come back to Marrakech just to stay there again.

The best hotel we stayed during our Moroccan adventure <3

I spent a great time in that Riad. Reliable and friendly stuff. Thank you Bashir for going to the Hamam with my son. He felt so safe and secure with you! Thank you Said for helping me with my severe problems with people from outside. Lovely place, worth coming back.

We had a very good stay in Hotel Sherazade in Marrakech. There was plenty to eat for breakfast and the coffee was good. Special thanks to Bachir, who was so kind to let us stay at the terras and drop of our bags when we came back after a exciting trip through the desert!

I have stayed at Hotel Sherazade regularly over the last 6 years, and have always found it to be a charming and welcoming oasis an easy walk from the Jmaa el Fnaa, hospitable, helpful and perfect for a place to stay in the glorious hecticness that is Marrakech. The food in house may be a bit pricey in comparison to some of the places in the souks, but after a long day of getting lost it is a perfect choice, and delicious. Staff are charming, and helpful. It is not a modern style riad, and nor are its prices. The 5am call to prayer is not nearly as intrusive as the sometimes over zealous tourists who get up early without considering those of us who perhaps stayed up later the night before!

+ friendly, nice location in the medina, cosy sitting corner, small but nicely furnitured room, early breakfast at 7.00 was no problem
- not the most beautiful hotel building, we had to carry our luggage 2 steep stairs up and 1 down (and vice versa when we left), bathroom could be better

Nice hotel, very near Jamaa el Fna, easy to find in the Medina. Very pretty old Riad with nice tiling, lots of plants, lovely furniture and decoration, roof terrace, good breakfast en very friendly en helpfull staff. Rooms are very clean though maintenance is not as good as the other hotels we went to in Marokko.
Some things went wrong, but they did their best to get it fixed. Staff good English, some French.
You may need a man with a little car to bring you into the medina with your luggage. Pay no more than around 30 Dh.

Room Tip: Hotel has a ventilation issue, rooms on higher floors are better. We liked room 5 and 16. Room 4 and...
