“A lovely surprise behind an old door”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We opted to stay in Riads in Morocco instead of hotels in the newer parts. So glad we did as Riad Yasmin was amazing. Beautiful Moroccan decor, wall to ceiling mosaic tiles, lovely little pool in middle of courtyard and really big rooms. The staff were so friendly and helpful. So much better to stay right in the medina where there is so much to see.

Our stay in this riad was amazing. The location is really nice and thenservice was so good.
We had a Chocolate room and was very pretty and "sweet". The staff was very helpful and they booked for us a local guide for a walking tour into the Medina. The cost was very cheap and the breakfast very good and tipical. We want to come back soon. Grazie di tutto !!!

The Riad is set just a short walk from the souks, in streets that hit all the senses with so much happening, so much noise and exotic smells. Step inside and you enter such a calm and peaceful setting that it is almost unbelieveable. The Riad was beautiful and immaculate. The young staff, all very well educated were only too pleased to provide excellent service. Our room, was actually an apartment, and very comfortable. We stayed for 5 nights and felt that we had both the comfort of the Riad, whilst also experiencing life in the real Marrakech. On our first night we arrived quite late and asked for a recommendation for a restaurant. Not only was the recommendation top class, but we were personally escorted there and back. On the Monday night when many restaurants are shut, we had a good meal in the Riad itself. We would certainly recommend it!

We have booked one of the suits and found our room spacoius and clean. The decoration was very morocan and beautiful - it definetely looks like photos on the websites.
The breakfast was good and sufficient. We were so overwhelmed by the city that we were happy to take our first evening meal at the Riad. It was very good, although a bit expensive for morrocon standards (25€ for a 3 course meal). The rooftop and the courtyard were a great welcome after the stress and noise of the city - you did not hear anything (besides the call of the muezzin). The staff was very nice and always willing to help. On the day of our departure they even got up at 4.30 in the morning to serve us breakfast - with a smile.
In conclusion we enjoyed our stay in Riad Yasmine and would go there again.

We (an older couple ) stayed here mid Dec.
Thought the location was good - enjoyed the challenge of the walk via the Souks to 'the' square.
So much better than staying in one of the 'outside town' Hotels.
Loved the traditional Riad and our first floor room was good. If visiting when the air conditioners (on roof terrace) are on then it may be that you would hear the noise from them on the first floor which is under the roof terrace.
But for us Riad Yasmine WAS the proverbial 'Oasis of Calm'. The staff were good - only had the included 'continental' breakfast which was spot on !

We stayed at Raid Yasmine for 3 nights. It is in the north section of the Medina, so a bit of a walk to the souk, but near the Medersa. Really nice place, clean, stylish - big rooms. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

We stayed for two nights in October order to be with friends who were on a tour. Our room was quite spacious, everything was clean, the outlook onto the courtyard was pleasant.

However, we were very disappointed that the roof terrace (mentioned on the hotel website) was not in a state where one could sit - the furniture was rusty, there were no cushions, no lights.

The food was expensive and average - 25 euros each for a mediocre and small 3 course evening meal. When we checked out the receptionist tried to give us a very poor rate on the dirham/euro exchange, not a problem we encountered elsewhere.

We were astonished when we went to another riad in Marrrakesh later in the week to find it superior in every way - for the same price per night!
