“The highlight of our Marrakech stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful riad. I didn't know what to expect from either the riad or Marrakech, and both exceeded our expectations. The owner, Maryk, was incredibly helpful, from our extensive email questions to organize a walking tour of the medina and day trip to the Atlas Mountains. She never hesitated to make time to personally help, not just us, all her guests. We really appreciate her hospitality. Her staff were all genuinely friendly. Their cook was amazing....the best dinners during our visit were all at the riad! The breakfast on the roof terrace was incredible too - not only was it a lovely setting with sunshine and views, but the home made local breads / pancakes were just too delicious, plus he freshly squeezed orange juice and mint teas were a highlight! The riad itself is stunning and stylish. Every room is tastefully decorated. We had the Taznarth room, which was very elegant and spacious...loved the big bathroom, tall ceilings, big windows and a separate room for the closets & luggage. We had plenty of hot water and the rooms were very clean + tidy. Overall, the riad was very relaxing and a great oasis from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. It is in a great location...super convenient to walk to the famous square, medina and other highlights in the center. Staying in a riad is the best way to experience Marrakech, and staying at Riad Azzar was the highlight for us! Beyond the riad, I wanted to comment on the nice local people in Marrakech. Nearly everyone we met was friendly, not pushy, which was a pleasant surprise. I would not hesitate to return to Marrakech and to stay a the Riad Azzar!

Being our first time to Marrakech, my girlfriend and I wanted to stay at a Riad but wanted one that had two beds, larger bathroom and on a second level. The Taznarth room was perfect as it has a double bed and they added a single bed, which was very comfortable. I travel a lot and have stayed at many places. I couldn't find one negative thing about this Riad. It was beautifully decorated, wonderful hospitality with staff that cater to your every need, the lady owner is an amazing host with wonderful guidance on where to go, super clean and delicious breakfast on the roof terrace. Although you are right in the hectic city centre you leave all that behind the minute you walk through the door. Such a relaxing atmosphere after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping. This was one of the highlights of my trip!

Fantastic location, minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Souks and Jemaa el Fnaa. Cees and Maryk are excellent hosts; the staff are friendly and efficient and we will definitely stay here again.

Not one detail has been overlooked in this exquisite Riad. After a long day's travel and maneuvering through the chaos of Marrakech, Riad Azzar could not have been a more perfect place to land. Apart from the magnificent surroundings, the staff could not have been more welcoming and attentive. The food is also impeccable. I almost didn't want to leave the riad as it is so magnificent! What stands out most though, is the care that the proprietors take in assuring their guests feel at home. I would in fact say that if it weren't for the guidance and suggestions given by the Lady of the riad, my trip to Morocco would not have been what it turned out to be. It was definitely among the best travel experiences I've ever had. When in Marrakech, don't dream of going anywhere else - let Riad Azzar be your oasis...

We stayed for 4 nights in November. The staff were attentive; anything we wanted was taken care of, and done with a smile. Breakfasts were great, as was the lunch, the one time we ate in. The Riad itself is beautiful and well maintained, the decor is stunning as well as feeling homely.

I had emailed the owners before our arrival for advice on things to do and they responded quickly and helpfully. The location is great, just around the corner from the main square and almost in the Souks itself, so easy to get everywhere.

A charming stay, thank you.

A lovely quiet oasis in the middle of a hectic hectic city. All of the team are lovely - it helps if you speak a little french but you can easily get by with english. Contact the riad before you travel and ask them to arrange transport from the airport. A guide is very very useful to find the riad. Breakfast on the roof terrace is lovely and we had a couple of lunches and dinners during our stay which were also gorgeous. Well located for all of the sites - the best place we went to was the ben youssef koran school - highly recommended.

We stayed in this beautiful Riad in October. If you want to be near the Medina this is a perfect haven. The owners and staff are lovely, intelligent and helpful people, who went over and beyond to make us comfortable, informed and welcomed.
