“Calm amongst the chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

The attention to detail in this place is amazing, it is ornately decorated and everything is spotless. However it is the welcome and attention of the owners that tops it off. Guido met us on arrival personally and from then on we felt very welcome. Guido is forever joking and having drinks with him and Mikael on the first night on the terrace was lovely. Isham was also lovely and kept coming to say hello to our daughter. this was their first baby tourist to arrive (our ten month old daughter) and we were treated to a newly made high chair and a lovely travel cot which was perfect. The food was cracking and tbe portions huge! be prepared for some serious cake for your third course. eating in the courtyard was lovely. The only downside is a slight smell coming from drains, which may well be a Marrakesh thing.

Thanks for the lovely stay, good luck with the venture and all the best,

M,B&A.

This riad is wonderful. Our room was very clean. It´s quiet and feels like an oasis in the turbulent medina of Marrakech. The owner is very nice and explained everything We had a warm welcome. The breakfast is absolutly unique and was served on the roof top of the riad. It´s a bit hard to find, but the owner organized a transfer from the airport and met us at Djemaa el Fna. An amazing riad!

Room Tip: Our room had no windows to the outside of the riad - only to the atrium. That was good because it wa...

We stayed in "les nuits de Marrakech" for 4 nights and felt more than welcome from the moment we get out of the taxi. Miguel (and Isham) explained, gave tips, served delicious breakfast and cooked great dinners. Superb hospitality!
The riad is located in the center of the medina, super clean and decorated with so much taste. Our holiday felt like a fairytale!

How rarely do you find a place that you feel genuinely sad to be leaving? This beautiful, tranquil riad was a perfect retreat from the mad exuberance that is Marrakech, and after five wonderful days here it was indeed hard to tear ourselves away from Mickael and Guido's hospitality. Never were the words 'Arrive as a guest; depart as a friend' more appropriate. From the moment we arrived; walked through the door and into a magical flower-filled courtyard, with the scent of orange blossom everywhere, we knew we had made the right choice. There are just five suites, each subtly different, but all spacious, spotlessly clean, and decorated in traditional Moroccan style, with intricately carved plasterwork ceilings, lantern lights, well equipped bathrooms and comfortable beds. There are so many delightful nooks and crannies for chilling out, plus the roof terrace with its dozens of potted plants, sun loungers and breakfast tables, and the courtyard pool which doubles as a jacuzzi, that you could happily spend all your time here - but of course, the lure of the souks will draw you in. So a wonderful 'home base' like this is exactly what's needed. Breakfasts on the roof terrace were lovely, with fresh orange juice (naturally!), fruit, omelettes, Berber-style pancakes, bread, croissants and pastries, plus unlimited coffee and tea ('normal' or mint), all served by the ever-smiling Ishan (apologies for the no doubt incorrect spelling...), with Fuziya (apologies again...) doing sterling work in the kitchen. Her talents are also evident in the delicious evening meals which can be ordered in advance, and on our first evening we thoroughly enjoyed a beautifully spiced tagine, followed by seasonal strawberries, all accompanied by a very pleasant bottle of Moroccan white wine. Dining by candlelight beside the pool with classical music playing in the background - not a bad introduction to Marrakech! Compared to many, this riad is also easy to find; no more than 7-8 minutes' stroll from the main square, and just off one of the main routes through the medina. Yes, you will probably get woken by either the muezzin from the nearby mosque, or by birdsong, but hey, this is Morocco and it's all part of the experience.

Its many, many architectural, decorative and culinary delights apart, what really stands out about this riad is the kindness, friendliness and sheer desire to make your stay as perfect as it can be on the part of Mickael and Guido. In over half a century of travelling all over the world, I can honestly say we have never met such wonderful hosts - they don't just go the extra mile; they take very obvious pleasure in doing so, and I can offer no higher praise than that.

Stepping into the peace and tranquility of this beautiful riad from the hustle and noise of the souk is like entering another world. Nothing is too much trouble for Michael & Guido, they are the perfect hosts, always on hand with a recommendation or a plate of pancakes... We looked at hundreds of roads before choosing this one, as we wanted somewhere that felt authentic, and we really felt we made the right choice. Wonderful breakfasts on the roof terrace, and a fantastic tagine on our first night, accompanied by Moroccan wine - even had the rugby found for us so we didn't miss the six nations! If you want your trip to Marrakech to be something special, don't even look at another riad...

Michael and Guido make this place, the Riad is beautiful and spotlessly clean but their dedication to make your stay perfect is what makes it. Plenty of delicious food should you want a really great place to stay.

We use to stay in Riads in Morocco for years now. “Les nuits de Marrakech” is exceptional and the best one we never seen. It is a wonderful place, with a typical and sophisticated decoration. The bedrooms are spacious, decorated with good taste and very clean. It is the same for bathrooms, so nice, so original. The Riad is located at 2 mn from Jemaa el Fna Place, with all facilities for different visit in Marrakech. Guido and Mickael, the owners, are so welcoming, very very pleasant, available and helpful at any time. We really have appreciated the very clean swimming pool and Jacuzzi, always available at any time. Breakfasts are delicious and varied. Meals are also very nice, prepared and served by the so pleasant local staff, including Moroccan specialties or not. It is a quiet place, simply marvelous and unforgettable…
