“My best hotel experience - ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I cannot remember having a better hotel experience while travelling - ever. Riad Al Nadine is kept so clean that my allergies even went away when I was inside the hotel. I couldn't believe that the glorious breakfast was included in the price we paid. But most of all, the unending generosity of Alain and Nadine in freely providing information - and even escorting us to unfamiliar places within the city, just blew me away. In a city of vendors bargaining for every penny, Alain and Nadine were trustworthy, reliable and - although completely unnecessary - overwhelmingly generous hosts. And all this says nothing about the Riad itself, which is so beautiful, I had days where I wished I was stuck in the Riad instead of exploring Marrakesh. I still can't believe how little we paid to stay in such magnificent comfort. If you are visiting Marrakesh, stay here.

This is my first time ever writing a review, but I absolutely need to do this to share how amazing the Riad Alnadine is. I stayed there for a total of three nights (31 May, June 1, June 5). Alain and Nadine did everything possible to make us feel at home. They were extremely accommodating, helpful, kind, friendly, always smiling, and made our stay absolutely perfect. After returning to Riad Alnadine after a few days away, I felt like i was coming back home. When I think of Marrakesh, the first thing I will always remember will be how perfect my stay was at Riad Alnadine. You definitely cannot go wrong with such perfect hosts. You will wish you could stay forever just to be friends with the lovely couple. Also, it's a great location, and the Riad is STUNNING - absolutely beautiful beyond belief. It's such a peaceful and quiet place to return to after being out and about on the busy streets of Marrakesh. Alain and Nadine were so helpful and even walked us to where we needed to be to make sure that we didn't get lost. They were truly perfect in every way!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sabbah room. It is absolutely lovely.

We stayed for a week at Riad Alnadine and it was perfectly hassle-free. From the ease of booking, to being picked up from the airport, and then a personal tour to the Jemaa Al Fna square, and feasts on the rooftop terrace, we felt safe, stress-free and pampered. Each morning, we had a fusion of moroccan and european breakfast, so we never left hungry or for want of anything.

Alain and Nadine were very warm and friendly. They were also every accommodating - even ensuring we had breakfast extra early to ensure we could make our excursion on time. The Riad has all the comforts you need, in a beautifully decorated building. You definitely get a sense of the orient, along with a good dose of modern comfort.

The location was also great, as it was close to all the activity in the medina, but sufficiently tucked away (not in a dark alley like other places, but on a kid-friendly street) to be quiet. It was also very safe. Highly recommended!

I dont think I can add anything more than all the previous reviews. Here I would like to thank Alain and Nadine for everything they have done. They were inspiring to me as a bed and breakfast owner in Montreal. I learned quite a few things from them which I will implement as soon as I go back home. Thank you again.

There are so many wonderful things that I can say about this Riad and its owners I'm not sure where to start.

First this riad is simply lovely! It's about 10 minutes from Jma Al Fnaa (the large shopping square in Marrakech) and is beautiful. The decor, the layout the feel is one that is very Moroccan and peaceful.

Nadine and Alain arranged a safe pickup from the airport for me as I arrived past midnight. When the transfer arrived to the street closest to the Riad, (The street of the old city are often small) he called Alain to come and pick me up and take me there.

Within a few minutes we were there, and oh what a sight when Nadine opened the door. It was like walking into a palace! My room was huge with a beautiful large dark wood door, and the doorways inside of the room were styled in a Moroccan manner. Stunning!


The breakfasts that are included in the price are fit for a queen, between that and a small lunch I was usually just fine for the day.

Nadine waited for me to come an excursion (that wound up arriving much later than planned) so that I wouldn't get lost getting back to the Riad at night as I was still unsure of me way. Alain walked me to the street to show me how to get to Marjorelle gardens and he even drove me to the bus station so that I could take a trip to Essaouira.

Talk about going above and beyone! Nadine and Alain really went out of their way to make sure I felt safe in getting around and comfortable, it felt like staying with friends and I look forward to getting back there, seeing them again and staying at lovely Riad Alnadine.

I stayed in this riad as a single female traveler and I felt entirely safe and welcome in Nadine's care. Nadine was so genuine with her welcome and really went out of her way to ensure that I was happy and had everything I could possibly want. I was really grateful to Nadine for showing me how to get to the main square, even accompanying me all the way there. The food for breakfast was absolutely delicious and exceeded expectations. A wonderful and peaceful oasis that was such a treat to return to after a day out in hectic, hot Marrakech!

Nadine and Alan have created the most elegant and tasteful house in this old riad. The colours are mainly muted neutrals but the materials and designs are traditional, which combines to give the house a feeling of great calm and elegance. Every detail is just so beautifully done, and this also applies to Nadine's welcome and hospitality. As we were only there one night and wanted to make the most of such gorgeous surroundings we asked Nadine to give us supper, which was truly delicious, as was the breakfast. The children loved watching and feeding the tortoises on the roof terrace, and I only wish we had been there longer to make full use of the lovely loungers up there. A really special place to stay.
