“Wonderful and serene in a great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The owner guided me in by phone to an area with plentiful parking just inside the medina gates (if you know Marrakech, it is the bab or gate right behind the bus station/gare routiere...opposite the Aswak Assalam). He immediately dispatched a gentleman on a moped to guide us the last 200 meters by foot to the riad and help with our bags.

One of the best things about Riads is feeling like you have stepped out of the hustle and bustle into the calm...Riad Clementine does this to perfection. It is a good 10 degrees cooler and smells divine the moment you enter. The decor is clean, simple and elegant. It has fruit trees and a fountain in the main court yard and Moroccan but modern decor.

The rooms are lovely, spacious and our bathroom had this fantastic dropped tub you have to see to believe. Wonderful bathrobes and a wonderful and clean little pool were so welcome after a hot day in the medina.

The owners can show you how to easily navigate the backroads to the main shopping streets...10 mins max by foot. You can also easily walk to the Majorelle gardens...a wonderful change from the hot and crowded streets. We ate at the Riad two nights in a row (its the easiest option with a baby) and the food both times was excellent. The staff were also friendly and welcoming.

All in all, I can't say a bad thing about it.

Room Tip: We liked our room with the dropped tub. on the same level as the pool.

I'm a hotel snob so spent lots of time looking for a good riad in Marrakech before settling on Riad Clementine. My wife and I were driving around Morocco and wanted to treat ourselves and this riad was the perfect place. The aesthetic is calm and refreshing compared to some other riads that are perhaps truer to historic form but go a bit overboard on mosaics and pillows. The riad is owned by a couple, Antoine and Angela, who were extremely friendly and helpful.

Our room and the bathroom was very nice. The pool and terraces with loungers were a great addition and one of the reasons I picked the riad -- after walking around the souks it was great to come back for a dip in the pool.

It's also got a great location: while it's in the medina it is only a couple blocks from the medina walls, so it was an easy, 15-minute walk into the Ville Nouvelle area of Marrakech. We'd explore the medina during the day and then head into the Ville Nouvelle in the evening for a different atmosphere.

This Riad was recommended by the travel agent and it turned out to be wonderful. We stayed here for two nights and loved every minute of it. The owners provided us with a warm welcome and were on hand to explain all about the riad and its surrounding sights.

The room had a wonderful mix of Moroccan charm complimented by crisp linens and plush towels. The swimming pool (plunge pool) was on the same level as the room, making it great to just jump in after a day seeing the sights.

We made the most of our first evening by having dinner on site which was a set menu. It was beautifully prepared Moroccan food.

This Riad is within the main walls but is a good 15 minute walk from the main square. Is suited us perfectly.

We had a fabolous stay at enchanted Riad Clementine. I can highly recommend this beautiful retread in midst of buzy Marrakech to all those people out there, who adore special interior, sensuality and discrete but very professional service. The hosts and owners are very kind people. We felt at ease and at home. Thank you very much!

This place is amazing. I can't say a bad word about it. Rooms, Pool, attention to detail, staff, quality of food, breakfast, dinner, all of it was amazing. If you want a touch of luxury in Marrakech then this is the place

Great place to stay, the hosts were friendly and helpful... Breakfast daily was a feast, and the rooms spacious, well decorated and clean.

The roof terrace is great, and unlike many Riads, the pool is on the roof, not on the ground floor, so perfect for sunbathing.

Would definitely return!

After extensive research my husband and I booked Riad Clementine for a 4 night break. It was our first time in Marrakech and we were looking for somewhere we could easily explore the medina from as well as enjoy some quality relaxing and peaceful time together.

Upon our arrival at the medina wall we were a little taken aback and unsure what to expect as we walked down the busy narrow streets to the Riad. (That's Marrakech!!)

We walked through the door and it took our breath away!

Everything from the decor to the smell to the ambiance of Riad Clementine was fabulous.

Angela and the team were brilliant hosts, we got a map, a whistle stop tour on the best places to go and advice on trips out if we wanted them (with no pressure to buy)

Our room (7) was the only room on the top floor and was perfect! I highly recommend booking this room as its private and has a lovely sunbathing terrace right outside the door. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and lunch up there, perfect for that alone time we were after!

The medina is a wonderful and fascinating place and Angela's advice to embrace it and get lost was spot on... And so we did!

The Riad is around a 20 minute walk from the main square. The walk is great and allows you to see and feel 'real life' - I loved it!!

Alcohol is not widely available out and about but there was always a cold beer and glass of wine available at the end of our evenings back at the Riad.

The added advantage of this Riad is the pool, this was very much welcomed to cool us down in the mid day heat!!

Believe all of the fabulous reviews about this Riad, we did and had an amazing stay!!!

*1 point to mention... The staff don't speak much English, although this didn't bother us!
