“The most amazing Riad I have ever stayed at...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This place is beautiful. I am a frequent visitor to Marrakech and this is definitely the best Riad I have stayed at by a long way, the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. T he rooms are spacious and are all uniquely designed there is a lot of outside space lovely terraces to relax on. It is peaceful but not far from the main attractions. I wouldn't stay anywhere else now I have found this gem of a place.

The staff at this riad couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Mohammed was exceptional in his attention to ensuring everything was perfect. The meals we had were so good and the dining room was romantic with candles and an open fire made just for us.The pool area candle lit at night was serene, peaceful and also romantic. The rooftop breakfasts in the sunshine were memorable and delicious . We had to move rooms after our first night as there was a problem with our toilet, we found ourselves up graded to a suite that slept 8 people. always helpful in making sure we found taxis, smooth transfers to and from the airport and our one night in the Ourika Valley at Kashbah Bab Ourika. Charming new French owners at the riad. A memorable holiday for us....felt sad to leave!

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw looked beautiful,has has a recent refurb, and a lovely mix of old Moroccan furn...

Stayed here in November for a long weekend to celebrate a special birthday with some friends, 14 in total. Beatriz and her staff made us all feel totally at home in this lovely riad. Everthing was taken care of, nothing was too much trouble, including airport transfers, food choices, drinks on terrace or in rooms, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and superb breakfasts for all 14 of us on the terrace!
Slightly further away from the normal tourist riads making an enjoyable walk to see the real walled city not normally seen. All rooms had their own Morrocan charm with en suite bathrooms, clean and comfortable.
With their sister hotel Bab Ourika in the mountains, we had a great Day trip out for lunch and some of our friends extended their holiday to double their Morrocan experience.
Have been to Marrakech before but would return to Riad Edward again.

Rooms authentic, artistic, clean , breakfast on the terrace in the sun was very special, supper in the courtyard candle lit was very atmospheric, food brilliant, very quiet, and lovely Beatrice and her team just could not do more to help, this is a treasure of a place brilliantly restored.

So when walking to this Riyad, you will ask yourself..."where the heck are we going...omg". you open this tiny door, and go into an incredibly beautiful Riyad - amazing rooms, courtyard with pool, roof etc. Great place - and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Definitely stay here!

What we were looking for we finally found, not easy with the loads of offers at Marrakesch: a Riad which preserved its 500 year old original charme thanks to the affectionate and careful restoration of its owners. Who's looking for the hip and stylish Marrakesch is definitely wrong here, but who loves the feeling having stepped back in time and diving in an almost declined world will feel at home. Riad Edward is situated outside of the main souk shopping frenzy, this makes you feel part of the normal life of the Medina. Not far away is the lively square Bab Tarzout with its daily market and many small shops, a 15 minutes walk through the souks or a 5 minutes taxi drive takes you to Jemma al Fna.
Our light and tastefully furnished suite with high cedar ceilings and beautiful old tiles was situates on the 1st floor and opened to the tropically planted patio with a magnificent pool. In the evening we relaxed on the the bedrooms fireside with a glass of red wine. The roof terrace with panoramic views of the Medina is a dream, at the beginning of April it was yet to cold for us using it often. Beatriz and her friendly and attentive staff made us feel at home and helped us in many ways. Riad Edwards is an oasis of peace and calm, early in the morning birds and the muezzin from nearby Sidi Sliman are greeting the new day. We will be back, inshallah!
Don't miss I Limoni: excellent italian restaurant nearby, chill atmosphere.

The hotel looks old. Almost impossible to find it yourself if you don't know the road. The staff was very friendly. The hotel itself and the rooms were clean. There is a small pool in the yard. Breakfast is available in the morning. There is a nice view over the city from the terrace upstairs.
