“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

An excellent riad, in the perfect location, extremely well run by friendly and efficient staff, fantastic breakfast on the rooftop terrace, and beautiful, quiet rooms. The food, especially at dinner, was to die for - by far the best we had during our two weeks stay in Morocco. Overall, could not be better.

Absolutely loved it!
The riad itself has been lovingly restored and furnished in keep with the character of morish architecture enriched by sumptuous fabrics and soft lighting that enhances the beauty and subtle sophistication of the building.
it is convenintly located in the Medina within easy reach of all the main places of interest and perfect to soak in the atmospher of the local community.
From the moment we arrived with a warm welcome from Massimo who picked us up at the taxi and walked us to the riad and the informative chat over a mint tea and lovely homemade
biscuits up to the moment we left,thanks to his and Giorgina local knowledge we did not put a
foot wrong.The advise they give is invaluable and they will go out of their way to make sure
you will have a memorable stay and enjoy the wonderful city that Marrakech is.
Their work ethic is second to none and this is reflected by the standards of all the fantastic team that works under their supervision,always with a smile and available to fullfill any request.
The food served is to die for and a total authentic culinary experience from the fresh and varied breakfast to the homely dinner tagines this has been some of the best food we had.
It has been like staying with long time friends.The only downside was that we eventually had to leave.
Thank you Giorgina,Massimo and all the staff for a wonderful experience!
We will be back soon!

We stayed here with our kids (9, 13 and 15) and we all had a great time!

The stay started with an informative and pleasant reception by the owners of the Riad. They quickly familiarized us with the dos and don'ts assisting us to make the most of our days in Marrakech.
The Riad is an oasis of rest and comfort within the middle of the buzzing city. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well-furnished and the food and service is great. The location is optimal to explore this amazing city!
We felt very welcome and spoiled by our hosts Giorgina and Massimo, a great couple. We can recommend this address to all.

Thanks Giorgina and Massimo!!!

Had a wonderful stay at this Riad, a peaceful and pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
Massimo and Giorgina who run the Riad are so helpful and make you feel welcome, and prepared for your stay in Marrakech.
We enjoyed our stay here and would defiantly recommend it.

My wife and I wondered before our arrival whether the glowing reviews of this wonderful Riad would be justified but in fact we were unprepared for the well nigh perfect nature of our week's stay with Massimo and Giorgina. We can only echo the numerous glowing comments made by previous reviewers which do not need to be repeated here but we would like to make a special reference to the staff who were uniformly excellent and looked after us with unfailing courtesy and kindness. We had a wonderful time and are already looking to book a return trip next Easter, the anticipation of which will help us through a long Scottish winter!! John and Pamela

We stayed at Le Clos Des Arts for a week and have nothing but praise for Giorgina, Massimo and all the staff. The rooms in the riad are beautifully decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts on the terrace were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. We also had two evening meals and the food was wonderful - we could have happily eaten there every night. The pool area was a real bonus - after the hustle and bustle of the city, it was a lovely spot to relax in the late afternoon. Giorgina and Massimo are the perfect hosts - knowledgeable, helpful, ever smiling and both go out of their way to look after their guests. We had the most memorable stay with them and will certainly return.

A superb 3-night break. We were hosted like friends of the family. The Riad is beautifully appointed and maintained. Massimo and Giorgina are delightful and their staff friendly, courteous, and efficient. Everything was done to ensure that our holiday was perfect. Thank you.
