“Treasure in the medina of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

It's like a small palace and you really feel to be in another time. The house is full of small details with fine Arabic arts. The staff and also the owner are very friendly and helpful! The Riad Melhoun is situated in the medina near the Jamaa el Fna square (10 min. by foot) and a lot of sights are within walking distance!

Our room was a bit small (due to the architecture of the house), the bathroom was quite big, but with small luggage it was still ok. If you have more stuff you should rather choose the suite.

We will definitely come again and enjoy this perfect Moroccan setting once more!

We went to Marrakech with friends for New Years Eve (taken a while to get round to writing review!) and had a fantastic time. One of the Riad's we stayed in during our holiday was Riad Melhoun and what a stay we had! From the time of making the booking to the time we walked out of the door, Youseff and staff went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a pleasurable stay. The Riad is beautiful, the breakfasts on the roof terrace were a delight and we even had a home-cooked dinner for our New Years eve celebration! We couldn't have asked for more and wouldn't hesitate to return whenever we get the chance. Can thoroughly recommend. Thank you very much.

Riad Melhoun, that was a very good service when we arrived in the Airport. A taxi was waiting for us for transport to Riad Melhoun, perfectly good for six person and the luggage. And when we arrived to Riad Melhoun, the dinner was ready to be served. Nice! WOW!! Fantastic.Riad Melhuon was perfect for us. Close to main square, restaurants, shopping and more. Riad Melhoun have nice and comfortable rooms, good environment and amazing architecture and decor. I loved it. All the staff were very helpful, kind and friendly. They cleaned the rooms everyday. So, i have nothing more to say: Riad Melhuon is the best in Medina!

Great staff, very comfortable. I like smaller places when I travel and the Riad Melhoun fits my needs perfectly. And, I didn't feel as though I had to compromise anything. Located ideally in the Medina, close to good restaurants and an easy walk to just about anyplace you'd wantr to go in Marrakech. Nice facility, beautiful rooftop garden. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They are simply terrific!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we were waved off, the staff at Riad Melhoun exceeded any expectations we had for our stay. We recieved a lovely warm reception of mint tea and patisseries and were blown away by the amazing tradional decor of this lovely Riad. Our rooms were absolutely lovely and were cleaned every morning. The roof top terrace was an amazing place to sun bath, swim and have dinner lunch or breakfast, or simply just to relax. All the staff were very helpful, informative, friendly and most spoke Arabic, French and English quite well. We really could not have asked for more even the location was perfect.

My husband and I along with another couple stayed three nights in this lovely Riad. The Riad is quiet, intimate and very tasteful. We were served breakfast on the roof top with excellent food. The staff really goes the extra length to make your stay wonderful and helps organize trips and other events you might like. They have their own arrangement with a taxi company who are also very helpful and kind. You feel safe staying at the Riad and taken very good care of. A place you should not miss if you are going to Marrakesh and the Medina.
