“Great Raid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

As many others, I found Riad le Clos des Arts via Tripadvisor, and our stay went far above our expectations. As opposed to staying in a hotel or guesthouse, this really is like visiting a wonderful family in a beautiful home. Massimo and Giorgina
have assembled a fantastic team, who will look after your every need.

Thank you for an amazing stay at your beautiful Riad! The location is perfect, 5 min from Jemaa El Fna square, in a beautiful, secluded area. It's extremely peaceful and beautifully decorated. The service provided by owners is just as described by other reviewers. As an example, I asked them about certain spices and they bought them for us as a gift! The map they provided was perfect - every street mapped out, which our guide books did not have, useful phrases, customs, souk locations, etc! The hamam they recommended and booked for us was a unique experience and a perfect way to end our stay in Marrakech. We had to have a dinner at the Riad as well based on other reviewers' comments and it was an incredible meal. I understand now why the cook gets marriage proposals from other guests ;-)

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Les Clos des Arts. Faultless attention to detail, a fabulous room and excellent food, all in a perfect location. Hosts Massimo, Giorgina and their staff all did their utmost to ensure we made the most of our stay. Will definitely stay here should we return to Marrakech in the future!

We have just returned from 4 nights in Marrakech, staying at le Clos des Arts. It was our first trip to Marrakech and we were a little apprehensive about the city's lively reputation. We needn't have worried. The lovely owners Massimo and Giorgina were wonderful hosts. Massimo personally met us from the taxi but also made sure that we knew the route to the riad for the rest of our visit. That level of care continued throughout our stay, with recommendations on restaurants and places to visit, local advice, taxi bookings etc. The riad had a friendly family atmosphere for both guests and staff.
We're really glad we opted to stay in a riad instead of one of the hotels outside the Medina. The riad design is incredibly tranquil and also quiet at night, yet you're right in the middle of the bustling city - the best of both worlds! When we visit Marrakech again, we'll certainly stay at le Clos des Arts.

Room Tip: We stayed in Amethyst, which was traditionally decorated and spacious

We stayed three nights in the Citrine room and then returned for two nights in the Amethyste room. The entire riad is wonderful and Georgina and Massimo couldn't be more lovely and helpful and knowledgeable. Natural hosts! I particularly loved the Amethyste room, its size, lovely colors--everything. Massimo's careful instructions about getting about in Marrakech were wonderful, and all recommendations were spot on. Georgina even arranged for a car to take us several hours south to Tourandant--the driver was very good and the ride was a fine way to see some country. We had two dinners at the riad which were very good (one, the keftes (?)tagine, was really terrific) and breakfasts were lovely. The staff are great as well. Really a very special lovely place. Already planning a second Morocco journey and will return here.

we stayed here for four nights at the start of a trip around Morroco, staying in 5 hotels in total. Other reviews explain why this hotel is special much more eloquently than I ever could. All I can say is that the rooms are very good, the food and service is excellent and the location is ideal. If you are going to Marrakech you really should try the Riad experience, and this one must be as good as any. the hotel arranged a guide for us for half a day - by no means essential but his enthusiam and knowledge made it well worth it in our opinion.

I have just arrived back from a 4 night stay with my family and felt compelled to write this review up straight away!
We had a wonderful time in Marrakech, but I can generally say that the trip was made even better because of this riad, Massimo and Georgina. The riad itself is beautiful through out, lovely rooms, courtyard, pool, bathrooms etc. But what really stands out is the care and attention that we were given from Massimo and Georgina (and staff). They helped us book restaurants, trips, made a beautiful meal one evening, and amazing breakfast every morning on the roof. They are generally lovely and very interesting people (Massimo was especially lovely with my daughter! - thank you Massimo).
I have been to Marrakech before and stayed in a riad, but the whole experience was nothing like this. If you are looking for a perfect location, lovely food, beautiful riad and 5 star care, look no further. I also think its a bargain!
Well done and I hope to visit again one day very soon! :-)

Room Tip: They are all beautiful!!
