“Great mini holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2008

We have just returned from Marrakesh where we stayed at the Riad Assouel. We had a really excellent stay and couldn't have wished for a warmer welcome, nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a sitting area and large bathroom and the other members of our party also stayed in a larger room, both were excellent.. Don't be put off by the location in a narrow alleyway off a dusty street, you'll enter another world when the door is opened to the riad. It can be difficult to find when you return after a day out but we found no problems locating it after the first day.

  • Liked — The warm welcome and the overall helpfulness of the staff
  • Disliked — The difficulty in finding it!

If you are planning to visit Marrakech then I would recommend the Riad
Assouel as a beautiful tranquil haven to retreat to after wandering round the amazing and fabulous mad chaos that is Marrakech.

Our welcome was so good. Immediately we felt we could relax. The place
is a gem; pure delight. It is comfortable, great food and excellent service. The staff were so lovely and couldn't do enough for us.

Moutta the manager was great and having her mobile number with us whilst out and about was helpful and reassuring. Do have a Hammam. We found this so relaxing. Fabulous place. Hope to return soon.

  • Liked — charming in every way
  • Disliked — no dislikes at all
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled as a couple

If you have ever seen Mr Ben on the TV when he walks out of the door to a different world the image could not be more fitting. Marrakesh as a city is colourful, busy and one of the most unusual places you can explore. But after a day in the Souks or town centre you will want utter peace and tranquility and you get it here. All the staff make a real effort to ensure you feel welcomed and all your needs are considered by the wonderful hotel manager, who will arrange visits anywhere with fantastic recommendations, organise taxi's where the driver will be instructed to walk you safely back to the hotel door. Accomodate any food preferences you have and cater for your every whim. I have never stayed anywhere before where they cared about you - going to the pharmacy if you are unwell or calling the local doctor for advice. Purchasing local produce to create tailored menus, through to geniunely wanting to ensure that you enjoyed every minute of your stay. The rooms were very clean and beautiful, each with their own identity and different decor. The top terrace has views of the Atlas mountains and is great to catch a few rays and have your breakfast. Generally the ambience is peaceful and relaxing. If you deserve a treat............stay here and be looked after.

Stayed March 2007
