“Stylish and Peaceful Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Me and my fiance had a great 2 day stay at this cool, laid back riad. After struggling to find the riad initially (it's not a very big sign and it's down very small, maze like streets) we were expertly greeted by Khaled and a pot of mint tea and some delicious pastries. We were given a map to show where the riad is situated and of attractions nearby (Fondouk restaurant which was excellent)

Our room in the riad was stylishly decorated and very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was delicious and served around the beautiful plunge pool. The rooftop terrace was brilliant for sun bathing and early evening relaxing and sun set watching.

All in all, a terrific stay in a beautiful riad in the heart of the medina. We recommend it very highly.

Fantastic 5 day stay.

Rooms: All rooms are stunning, varies in size but all very comfortable looking. The Merinade suite had an incredible rainforest shower head with wonderful pressure.

The whole place is super stylish, not to mention this riad is wonderfully maintained. So so clean!

The people here are super helpful and genuine! The food here was also far better than the restaurants nearby or in the supertouristy recommended stalls found at the Jemma.

It's also an easy walk to the Jemma.

Tips/etc:

Absolute must - book a transfer to the riad. You will not find it on your own.

Be sure to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper (morning prayers).

Wifi will not work with Apple products in the upstairs rooms.

Room Tip: Do upstairs for better natural light and quietness, or downstairs for much stronger wifi connection!

Owner Thierry created a stylish and peaceful oasis in the north of the Medina, with one of the highest rooftop views to the Koutoubia mosque. This is a new riad decorated in very good taste: luxurious but subtle, surprising and comforting. Close to main attractions as the Medersa Ben Youssef and the Musée de la Photographie (a must-visit). Thierry's staff is very friendly, and the meals they serve are delicious. Rooms are new, bright and airy, beds comfortable, shower pressure perfect. I felt very much at home at this Riad and gladly recommend it to anyone visiting this beautiful town.

Room Tip: All the rooms are situated around the central court, with natural light in the bathrooms (a rare sig...

Only stopped here for one night on arriving in Marrakech, as we were heading to the coast. From the initial booking to leaving the Riad Matham everything was wonderful. From being contacted to have pick up arranged from the airport, being greeted by the friendly staff, welcomed in to impeccable accommodation which was decorated well and most importantly clean and tidy. It was a shame we could only stay one night at the Riad Matham, and I would certainly look stay again if returning to Marrakech, as well as strongly recommending to friends and family.

Thanks Thierry

We loved this Riad - probably our favourite in Morocco! Thierry is a real artist and we really loved what he had done with the Riad - it was like staying at an Art gallery - so much to see!

The rooms were huge, decor was perfect, breakfast was fabulous, and the two Fatimas were lovely. Just gutted we only had one night there and couldn't stay longer!

Great value for money. We'll stay again.

We visited Marrakech again in February and I was curious to try out Riad Matham, which had been newly opened in December 2012. The riad was excellent - newly refurbished and tastefully decorated. The owner is charming and his staff very friendly. The roof terrace was a great place to chill out with uninterrupted views of the Atlas Mountains. On the two occasions that we “dined in”, dinner at the riad was delicious, prepared by the in-house chef. I am dreaming of a calm oasis...and looking forward to returning to Riad Matham soon.

A suggestion: For a hassle free arrival, take the taxi transfer offered, as the riad is tucked away down a small side street, 2 minutes walk from the taxi drop off point, but can be a little difficult to find.

I spent three days in that riad. The bed was really comfort and the room clean and spacious. The breakfast was served in the courtyard (3 different kind of bread, jam, fresh orange and banana juice, fruitsalad and coffee).
There was a terrace, where you could relax and enjoy the view. It was well decorated (manimalistic style) and I couldn't stop taking photos.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
It was only a 10-minute walk to the Jemaa Al-Fna.
You may find it difficult to discover the riad -especially the first day- but the owner will give you a map.
