“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

Stayed here for 2 nights, in a room on the first floor. Really close to Jemma El Fnna (less than a 5 min walk). As with every other Riad in Marrakesh, not v easy to find so I wish the staff would set up a meeting point after arrival in the city. However, we were able to call them and they met us and showed us the way.
Breakfast is ok- standard breads, OJ, and jams.
Room was clean
Bathroom was clean, but seemed almost unfinished- perfectly adequate for a couple days
Overall, an awesome value for 45euros/night

Hi

What made the whole experience while staying in Marrakesh, was the friendly and very attentive staff especially Aziz, nothing was every any bother or hassle. The beds were quite small but the views over the terrace and the quant decor made it a very pleasurable stay

Our biggest issue here was that our plans altered a bit and I contacted the raid 4 days ahead to change our reservation from 4 to 3 nights. The French owner insisted on charging for the full 4 nights. He claims the policy is on his website, but I cannot find that. No negotiation at all. This issue put me in a pretty grumpy mood-not so fun on vacation. Riad was otherwise charming and assitants Aziz and Massoud were great. Decor more French Moroccan (French owner) than Moroccan Moroccan.

Unlike my Riad in Fes, this Riad was a gem. When Aziz picked me up from Djemaa al Fna, I was surprised to see the excellent location of the Riad, very close to the square, and also secluded and quite. There is a great terrace (2 levels actually) from which you can watch the beautiful sunset, and the rooms are decorated beautifully, with very comfortable beds. It is also very safe. Aziz is something on his own. He is very friendly and helpful, a very good soul. I was there the first day of Eid, and he shared with me the food his mom had sent over for him. The place will certainly see another visit from me, and this time with bunch of friends.

Stayed here with some girlfriends last weekend and had a great time. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was perfectly adequate and good value for money. Ideally situated for the main square and sueks. 5 star hotel round the corner for pre dinner cocktails and après dinner wine, pricey but worth it after a hard days haggling in the sueks.
The best bit about Riad Chouia is the roof terrace, fab views over the roof tops of Marrakesh and very comfortable. We checkout at 11 but didn’t have to leave for the airport until 3.30, we sunbathed on the roof terrace until it was time to go. We were provided with water, coffee, a room for our luggage and a shower room to freshen up in. This was particularly appreciated.

We arrived at the Marrakech train station in the early morning. We were informed that a taxi ride from the train station (in Ville Nouvelle) should cost about 15 dirham to the Jemma el Fna, close to our Riad. We had a hard time finding a taxi driver who would turn on his meter to drive us there, but after a few, we found one that was willing. If you don't have a lot of luggage, the walk is about 25 min. There are no signs pointing to this Riad, but by now, we were used to not having any directions on the streets. There is a small passage way close to Jemma el Fna that leads to a small maze of passageways that leads to this Riad (the door is at least marked). We were greeted by the owner of the Riad and his young son. The courtyard of the Riad is spectacular, with lots of greenery, large fountain/pool in the middle, many artifacts, maps and art around and on the walls. It's very charming and tastefully decorated. Our room was on the main floor, and we were surprised at how big it was. It had plenty of storage space. It was clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was very spacious and clean and even had a bidet. The bathtub was showing small signs of water damage, but nothing too concerning. We had plenty of hot water, although, again, no shower curtain :). In the morning, we had breakfast on the roof terrace, which had amazing views and was very spacious. Breakfast was a typical Moroccan breakfast - tea, pancakes, jams, fruit, bread.
We had put down a deposit to reserve this Riad, and to pay the difference we had the option of paying credit card or cash, however, they charge 10% extra to use the credit card, so it's better to pay by cash if you have it. Also, all the Riads in Morocco charge a 'staying tax' on top of the room rate, so beware of this, as it may not say that when you book the room. It's usually very small - about 3 euros per room (or per person - can't remember).
Overall, we really loved this Riad - it was so beautiful and spacious, and the staff were very helpful and nice. It was close to the Medina and all the sites. We would definitely come back here again.
