“Riad Amina is a great place to stay in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2011

An excellent Riad - small and friendly, with superb service. Nora and Miriam, always made sure we had everything we needed, gave good advice and sorted out trips, taxis, restaurants etc for us when asked. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the Riad is a true oasis. When you are dropped off from the taxi in the main square, there is a guide to show you how to get to the Riad - only a few minutes walk - we changed some money at the Riad so we could give him a small tip of 20 MADs. (just under £2.00) a lovely restaurant called Dar Zellij is "round the corner" and a member of staff will walk you there to make sure you find your way and collect you if you are worried about the streets at night. We felt very safe though.

I am writing this whilst still in the Riad which goes some way to showing how they have blended tbe modern (free wifi) with the old and traditional without compromising on either! From the moment you arrive, which in our case was late due to delays the staff were their waiting and had refreshments on hand and a no pressure approach to everything. As previously mentioned the staff are fabulous in that nothing is too much effort including fresh flowers each day, even down to folding, ironing and organising our clothes which due to the late hour we had hardly unpacked properly! Breakfast is a relaxed and varied affair with fresh breads and orange juice always available. The riad also sells local beer and wine which although slightly pricey is a rare commodity in and around the old town! I would have no hesitations in recommending this place to anyone as it really is a fabulous little location, as long as you can find your way back!

We stayed at Riad Amina four night in June 2010 and wish it was a more extended visit. The riad is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of marrakech. I couldn't praise the staff more. The room was immaculate and every day they added a nice little touch to our room with fresh flowers or scattered rose petals etc, you certainly noticed the attention to detail. The staff are very helpful and speak good English as most people in Morocco do. Riad Amina is situated in the heart of the old town just a short stroll to "Djemma El Fna Square" and the Souks. It's the perfect location if you wish to see, feel and breathe Marrakech at it's beautiful best. Anyone who stays at one of the big international hotels in favour of a Riad is missing out on so much. I'll finish on saying Marrakech is very safe to walk at any time of the day or night, just watch out for the scooters.

Following the debacle of the Icelandic Ash Cloud when we were due to travel here in April we eventually arrived in September. We are so glad that we persisted because this little Riad (just 16 rooms) was absolutely lovely. The trip from the airport to the Raid was typical of travel within Marrakech, fast, busy, noisy and just plain crazy. We stopped at the side of the road and walked about 150 metres to the Riad along narrow alley ways so typical of the city with chattering people, mopeds and the busy lifestyle of the locals. Then we came to a large wooden door in a wall with a heavy knocker. It was opened and we were warmly invited into a haven of peace and tranquility where you were able to hear the birds singing in the small courtyard.
We were invited to take mint tea and petite fours whilst we completed the local paperwork and our cases were taken to our room. We had a lovely chat with the staff who explained the end of Ramadan and told that as we were the only guests at the moment we were automatically upgraded to the best room. There were only two other couples the whole five days we stayed at the Raid.
That night we took our evening meal at the Riad which was home cooked and very tasty.
The Riad itself it about ten minutes walk from the Souks which then lead directly to the main square at Jemaa el Fna so it is ideally placed within the old city walls for access to the main tourist spots.
Thank you Riad Amina for a wonderful short stay.

We stayed 2 nights in Riad Amina and our stay was very pleasant en a little bit too short. The staff is very friendly and give you good en helpfull information about Marrakech. They really want to give you a feeling like you are at home. The Riad is wonderfull with a nice terrace on the roof which shows you a view over Marrakech. The rooms are clean and with a lot of atmosphere. So we really can recommend this Riad to other travellers.

We stayed in Riad Amina for five nights with our teenage children. My husband and I stayed in the downstairs Junior Suite whilst the children were in an upstairs twin room. The rooms were beautifully decorated with fresh flowers in the lounge area and bathroom. The beds were comfortable.
We loved the Riad! We felt we were completely at home! Apart from the beautiful courtyard where we enjoyed breakfast and dinner on two occasions, there is a comfortable lounge and dining room. As some of the nights were cooler we ate in the lounge. The table was beautifully presented with rose petals. The home cooked dinner was absolutely delicious. Fresh ingredients and so tasty.
Although the weather was too cool for us to use it there is a lovely rooftop terrace with plunge pool and sunlounges.
The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good English or French.
We enjoyed the private hammam opposite the Riad. It is highly recommended and quite an experience.
It is sanctuary in such an interesting city. We highly recommend Riad Amina and will definately return. It is a little hard to find but hey, that's Marrakech!
