“Moroccan food for dinner and the fireplace - all you need for romantic stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Been here for the weekend from 13 till 15 of January. The Riad Chorfa is owned by French and was renewed in 2002. The manager Hanane is very friendly and speaks good English. Has 12 rooms and terrace. In winther it is very cold in medina, so please take the slippers, socks and sweater with you. The most amazing thing is the terrace with the panoramic view on the Marrakech, recommend you to spend as much time there as possible. In the evening in winter please ask to make the fireplace in your room work. It will make your stay even more romantic. We had a home made Marrocan dinner snd breakfast, which was fantastic.

Staff great but overall this is a very tired looking Riad in need of a complete refurb. Roof terrace - rusty chairs, filfthy cushions - lots of things broken - rooms had lightbulbs not working and never replaced. Evening meal was expensive and not worth it.

Marrakech - we ended up booking in for the day into the Club Med for the day just to get away from the heat and noise - £28 with towels, all you could eat - absolutely fab food - and all you could drink - including fresh, very good bottle of wine at lunch.

Souks - the prices were way over the top in a lot of the souks - managed to find some items at a really good price with no haggling - only to ask further down the alley and they were five times the price! Got fed up with the haggling when going after a light - the final price was £22 and we found one almost identical in TK Maxx over here for £13.

Paid a fortune for a suite but was a disgrace!! Looks as though it hadn't been cleaned for months! Dirty bed linen and generally a filthy room! Never again! Wouldn't appreciate this in any country and especially with the prices they charge!

We stayed here while travelling around Morrocco on our first and last night and our room hadnt been cleaned in between. Very basic and not what had been described to us when booking.

This ryad was part of our travel package so we didn't know what to expect. We took a petit taxi from the train station to Mouassine mosque (30 dirhams for 2p plus luggage). We were dropped off near the mosque where we paid 20 dirhams to a man with a cart to bring us to the ryad, because we didn't want to get lost in the medina. There are no signs along the way to indicate the location of the ryad, so our decision turned out to be a good one. The souks is located around the corner and it's a 10min walk to the Djemaa square.
The ryad was nicely decorated with a big courtyard that had birds and turtoises. Our room was spacious and clean with airco and an ensuite bathroom with plenty of towels. We chose to have dinner at the ryad (3-course meal for 150 dirhams) because it was our last night before flying home and we had seen plenty of Marrakech already. We rated our dinner to be excellent, with our culinary knowledge of being in Morocco for the past 3 weeks where we were spoilt for choice.
We were due to leave at 7am the next day, so the ryad prepared a breakfast to go (oj, bread, pancake, cake, butter and plastic knife). The ryad also arranged for a petit taxi to pick us up in the morning, so we didn't have to hail one on the street. Excellent service.

We stayed 2 nights on arriving in Marrakech. Arrived in the middle of the night, but were nevertheless welcomed very friendly and offered a drink. Breakfast was good. The location, decoration and interior perfect. After having travelled to the south we returned once more to the same Riad and really looked forward to it. We got other rooms, but they were beautiful too. It makes a difference which type of room you have, I guess, one is bigger than the other. The rooftop view (snow on the Atlas) was great. The muezzin surely woke us up, but seeing the huge amount of mosques you can't miss that and certainly not blame the riad for it. I would surely go back there, it's a little gem.

I stayed at the Riad with my wife and 3 kids, we were made to feel very welcome the minute we arrived. The staff are lovely and very helpful and always offered us tea when we arrived back at the Riad after a long day in the Souks. My kids particularly enjoyed the 3 tortoise in the Riad and of course the internet access! Breakfast was pleasant with a nice variety each day. The Riad is in a brilliant location only a 4 min walk to the main square Jemaa Al Fenaa. Would defo go back.
