The Riad is in the Medina. It's a nice place to stay and to rest after one day visiting Marrakech. Every places are at a walking distance. The surroundings of the riad feel very secure also till late in the evening/begin of the night (after we didn't try).
The owners and the staff are very nice and helpful.
There are also a good number of good restaurants at walking distance.

Pascal and Pierre-Alain are exceptional hosts, and take great pride in welcoming visitors to their riad and to Marrakech. Pascal in particular went far above and beyond, not only offering helpful advice on the city but gracefully accommodating our fluid travel plans with the help of another riad it seemed he was responsible for -- he even had our bags we left in Marrakech moved to the other riad when we returned from a side trip. He was also all to happy to offer a ride to the train station when he realized we were going there at the same time as he was going to purchase a ticket for a guest who had fallen ill. The riad itself is charming, and the breakfasts were excellent if a bit repetitive. Only complaint might be that Pascal very highly recommended a small family-run desert tour company (Desert Life - Mohamed Boulfrifi) that turned out to be a disappointment -- the scenery along the route and of course the desert itself were not to be missed, as we had been told by Pascal, but we felt taken advantage of and were disappointed with a generally unprofessional approach from the company. I imagine riad owners who are likely to recommend the services get better treatment!

Pascal and Pierre run a lovely Riad here. They were very friendly and Pascal's English is good so that you can ask him the many questions you have about Marrakech. When we arrived Pascal greeted us warmly and gave us mint tea and pastries while he talked us through vital information and provided us a with a decent map to find our way to the main square.

We stayed in the suite there and it was beautifully decorated but just a tad too dark. Also the internet did not work for some of the time we were there which was a shame as we had paid for the suite with a computer. Appreciated though that this could not be helped. The suite was kept clean throughout our stay.

Breakfast was served in good time - 8:30am till 11am. It tasted lovely but would have been nice to have a choice some days. Waiter service was great.

Make sure you try the mint tea - Pascal makes it beautifully.
Also take good ear plugs - the early morning call for prayer across the city will wake you.

Excellent service. Brigitte, Herve and staffs were friendly, helpful and attentive, they make sure that we were well looked after all the time but not being intrusive on our privicy. It is located close to most of the main attractions and good for shopping at the Souqs for leather goods and local crafts. The Riad is full of characters and we could experience true Moroccan living.
The room was too dark at night, it would be perfect if stronger lighting were fitted. Because of it's location, taxi could only dropped us off at the main street and we had to walked through dark alleyways to access the Riad, we were a group of three so we felt safe but would not recommended for lone female traveller.

We stayed here for three nights. Hidden in a side street, Riad Nomades is in a perfect location to experience the bustling life of Marrakesh. It is close to the main square (5 minute walk) and souqs.

The owners gave great advice for getting around and haggling and a lovely breakfast is served unti 11am each morning which can be enjoyed on one of the two terraces.

Fully recommended for a relaxing stay.
