“Beautiful riad, fantastic location and great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We stayed here for two nights in February during a week long trip to Morocco, and this was the best riad that we stayed in. The room was beautiful, as was the terrace, and Guido and Michael are great hosts. Fantastic breakfast (bread, pastries, juice, tea, coffee, pancakes, yoghurt, fruit....)and a great location within the Medina.

If I ever go back to Marrakesh, I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for four nights in January and were delighted with this Riad. It is very well situated, being minutes from the main square and within the Souk. It is very beautiful and peaceful inside and the rooms are lovely. The main attraction is the wonderful owner! We only met Mikael briefly, but Guido looked after us as though we were family. We could not have been made more welcome. On arrival, Guido spent time explaining the different areas of Marrakech to us, giving us tips on how not to get scammed, how to get cabs and all those other things that make such a difference when you are somewhere that feels as alien as Marrakech. Guido also gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations and booked a lovely hammam for us.

The staff are friendly, polite and cheerful as well, a real credit to Guido and Mikael. If you get the chance to eat at the Riad in the evening, do so. The chef is incredible! We ate the best food of the trip here and that's saying something, as Marrakech has many good restaurants.

We visited La Mamounia while we were in town and my husband ideally talked about going there for a 'landmark' birthday, but we concluded that it was far nicer staying in this Riad, with its very personal touch. Can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: It is a small Riad, so there is nothing much to differentiate one excellent room from another.

Beautifully decorated riad of only 5 rooms in traditional style. Best feature is the helpfulness of the owners to help us find the main sights in this confusing city, and also how to bargain in the souks. Remember the leather shop they recommend is closed 12.30 - 3 (it's excellent). Guido is an excellent Italian chef if you choose to book a meal at the riad.

We stayed for 3 nights. What a lovely Riad, an oasis of calm in a "bustling, mad" city.
It is very clean, very comfortable and with lovely decoration.
It is situated within 5 minutes walk of the main square.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Michael & Guido.
They were very helpful and helped us to make the most of our 1st visit to Marrakech.
All in all we thourghly enjoyed our visit and our stay at Les Nuits, Michael & Guido contributed considerably to that enjoyment, even finding a slice of chocolate cake, and candle, as we were leaving, as ten minutes earlier I had told Guido that it was my wife’s birthday.
We would highly recommend this Riad and will certainly stay here again if we ever return to Marrakech.

Great location, lovely rooms, great breakfast, dinner available. Hosts, Guido and Michael couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly, helpful and informative, nothing was too much trouble - from recommending shops, booking restaurants, finding somewhere for New Years Eve or taking guests to the best bespoke leather shop in town.
Would thoroughly recommend for a long weekend or base for exploring Marrakech and it's surroundings.

Overall: on our trip around Marocco we stayed here for a total of 5 nights. the riad is perfectly located in the souk not more than a 5 minute walk from the main square and thus will serve you very well as a base to discover the beauty that is Marrakech.

our host: Michael, made our stay even more unique than it already was. Having gotten engaged on the top of North Africa, Michael helped me organise the details for the surprise dinner that i had planned. Transfers for both my and my fiancee's family (that wasn't even staying at the riad), perfect seating in the fully booked restaurant, roses in our bedroom upon our return from dinner, and and...Michael thank you again for your help with all of it. We will be forever grateful for helping us make this a unforgettable memory and day. So dear traveller rest assured you will be well catered to in this riad and if only TA would allow to give 6* this riad and host would definitely derserve each one

The rooms: all three rooms (and the ones we didn't sleep in) were all very spacious, clean and designed with splendour and comfort in mind. the traditional colours are well placed. the lights give the room a calm aura to it.

The bed: just perfect. the linen were nice and soft and smooth guarantying a refreshing and deep night's rest

The bathroom: best part of the room. Amazing design, lovely combination of colors, great comfort with fluffy, silky smooth towels.

The breakfast: is served on the roof terrace that is home to a lovely garden allowing you to forget the hustling in the tight allies of the souk. freshly pressed orange juice, fresh seasonal fruits (not apples and pears, but pomegranates or delicious grapes), traditional pancakes and delicious pastries from the famous bakery "Patisserie des Princes", that the host has picked up the same morning.

We stayed early November 2013 for 2 nights.

Fantastic facades, wonderful interiors capped off by a nice little pool and a top deck on top of the riad itself for food. All calm and beautiful in the face of the riot that is Marrakech.

All up though, the owners Guido and Michael are the biggest selling points! They are really nice, honest and so knowledgeable in local culture and always seem to have a yarn to tell. They gave great advice on where to eat, what to do, what not to do and all his recommendations/ advice were spot-on.

The only downside - On our first night, we had some festival of children going on outside our room (which apparently encouraged kids to play drums, be completely loud, and just be the sort of nuisance tourists generally find an annoyance). Guido and Michael were a little upset that we were upset, and went out of their way to help us including buying us earplugs!
How is that for service!!

Strongly recommended.
