“Amazing Riad in the Medina with the BEST food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2011

My boyfriend recommended Casa Lalla after a trip there 5 years ago when he just had dinner in the Riad - for ages he has been saying how wonderful it was and that we must go there. The rooms were beautiful, the roof terrace was spectacular but the best thing about Casa Lalla is the food and the owner Pierre.
The food is chosen that morning from the markets and then made into a 4 course delight! The setting is beautiful and it is an extremely special place.
Anyone who is wanting to sample French-Moroccan cuisine to the highest standard in a wonderful riad must go there

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

I have just come back from a week in Morocco with my partner and our two teenage children, we stayed three nights at Casa Lalla and would definitely recommend it. First the location is ideal, very central and just a short walk to Jemaa el Fna and the souks, Maison Tiskiwin museum and Dar Menebhi palace. The riad is situated off a busy street so there is everything you need close by but the actual location is really peaceful and calm and makes an ideal retreat. The decor is simple and elegant, the lighting is low which contributes to the atmosphere of privacy and seclusion. There is a wonderful roof terrace with great views and comfortable loungers. The owners Pierre and Annabel were welcoming and helpful and helped us acclimatise quickly. They arranged a hamman and helped us organise transport to our next location.

This beautifully restored & very pretty riad with 8 rooms (including suites), all en suite, owned & run by Pierre-Olivier & wife Annabelle is right in the heart of the old city so ideally located for access to all the extraordinary sights of old Marrakech & the nouvelle ville.
It features a room terrace & hamman where luxurious spa treatments are available. The hosts will organise shopping trips if desired & taxi or bus excursions (for 1 day or longer) to the many interesting destinations outside Marrakech.
In all a most charming & very tranquil & private place to stay with very amiable hosts & staff run on a very personal but professional basis.

We have just had 3 glorious days staying at Casa Lalla, having booked with a little trepidation having read a previous review. The location is perfect - a 3 minute walk to the centre, yet quiet - we woke to bird song and the call to prayer - extremely comfortable rooms, and a delightful roof top breakfast. The riad is charming - simply furnished and elegant, not big and not as grand as some - which was exactly what we wanted. It has been restored with charm and simple good taste - and is therefore not a pastiche, as some foreighn owned riads seem to be. The owners, Pierre-Olivier and Annabelle could not have been more welcoming or helpful, and the tour that they arranged for us, into the Atlas mountains and to a Berber village was the highlight of the trip. We will certainly go back (there is still a lot of the souk I haven't bought!) and I will happily recommend Casa Lalla to any potential traveller.

Very nice house, kind and welcoming staff, place with personality, owner kind and attentive, perfect location, very nice atmosphere in the whole riad, massage-hammam simple but done with care. We will go back to Casa Lalla in the next visit.

The service was not at the level of the price :
durty sheets with apparent holes
lights not working
sink blocked
very poor breakfast (just unacceptable)
no soap in the bathroom

Very low quality/price ratio
Avoid this hotel

Voila des clients Français qui préfèrent rédiger en Anglais...
Nous avons reçu comme toujours avec beaucoup de plaisir ce jeune couple pour quelques jours dans notre riad.
Après une arrivée autour d'un verre de vin et de quelques discussions forts sympathiques devant la cheminée nous avons bien sur présenté la maison et ses services ainsi que la chambre choisi par leur soins sur notre site.
Nous avons compris leur de la présentation de la chambre qu'il y avait apparemment un problème quand à leur choix de chambre.
Ce couple a choisi la plus petite chambre du riad et aussi bien sur la moins chère, pouvons nous être responsable de leur choix, je ne crois pas.
Les salles de bains des chambres ont toutes bien sur du savons du shampoing, un sèche cheveux des serviettes propres qui sont changées tous les jours.
Les draps des lits sont changées également tous les jours un service pressing de qualité à Marrakech s'occupe de tout cela.
Les chambres sont faites tous les jours également, ménage complet avec des produits adaptés.
Lorsqu'une ampoule grille malencontreusement la nuit celle-ci sera bien sur changée que le lendemain, quoi de plus normal.
J'aimerais juste donner la description de notre petit déjeuner à CASA LALLA : pain, beurre, confitures aux choix, jus d'orange, café, thé, lait, chocolat, thé Marocain, salade de fruits, oeufs au plat omelette à la demande ou encore brouillé à la crème, et encore deux sortes de crêpes Marocaines et cake maison fait tous les jours. Je me demande bien ce qui est inacceptable.
Il est dommage que certains clients déchargent leur mal être sur des propriétaires amoureux de leur métier qui feront toujours le maximum pour satisfaire leur clientèle durement acquise à force de travail sérieux depuis 1O sur la place de Marrakech.

For the money, this place is unbeatable. The roof terrace is divine, the rooms are intimate and hidden away and I discovered that if our restaurant reservations were made under the name "Casa Lalla", (which they often were thanks to our excellent concierge), we had the best table in the restaurant, everytime. I don't know why, but we sure enjoyed it. 5 stars.
