“A jewel amongst the chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you go to Morocco, you MUST stay at a Riad for at least one night and while I can't say I am a "Riad" expert (this was virgin ground for me), the Riad Yasmine seemed to really encapsulate what one should be. The staff was extremely friendly, the courtyard was like an oasis, and the rooms carried with them a real feeling of authenticity. The cab driver that took us from the train station somewhat led us astray and we ended up having a tough time finding the place and ended up having to have local kids guide us back...they tell you it's for free (we knew otherwise, but were completely lost and had no choice), but when you give them money they ask for more over and over, which was frustrating. But I digress. When we entered the Riad Yasmine it was a complete 180, going from a chaotic environment to complete tranquility in a matter of seconds. It's hard to explain - it's one you must experience. Not that I would recommend the getting lost part :). Lastly, of the 3 hotels we stayed at during our Moroccan visit, it had the only advertised Wi-Fi that worked!

I can't say enough positive things about our stay at Riad Yasmine. Besides the accommodations of the riad itself exceeding my expectations, the staff were some of the nicest and most helpful people around. The staff arranged taxi service to/from the airport, gave us directions on how to get to various sites, and were always attentive to our needs (bottled water, towels, etc.). I so appreciated how they had a kind smile in everything they did. I highly recommend eating dinner at Riad Yasmine. We had lamb and chickpea tangine with cous cous one night and chicken tangine the next. The meals were by far the best we had the entire trip. If I return to Marrakech some day I would definitely stay at Riad Yasmine again.

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 !
