“Nice Riad in the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

The Riad Fabiola is a clean, friendly and beautiful . It offers individual, well decorated and traditional bedrooms. The meal was good value for money and very tasty. The Riad is in the center of the medina and is about a 10 minute walk to the main square (providing you do not get lost, which is very easy to do in Marrakech, however all part of the fun!). The Riad fabiola offers a haven of peace and tranquilty, I would recommend anyone to stay at this Riad as it great value for money and the staff are just exceptional!

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Riad fabiola in october . It's a beautiful Riad right in the centre of the Medina in Marrakech a short walk from the main square (10/15mns).
The Riad is beautifully presented with appropriately themed moroccan style decor - each room is unique. The central courtyard area is lovely with a plunge pool which was welcoming after the heat and craziness of Marrakech!
The Riad was a welcome and tranquil escape from the bustling city.Terrace with a view over Marrakech's rooftops. Very quiet place only interrupted in the morning by the (short) calling to prayer in a nearby mosque.
I would recommend this Riad to anyone wishing to visit Marrakech - the friendly service from the staff.

(1) Room was cold and dark (but pretty like in the picture). (2) They did not have wi-fi as promised on the website which was highly problematic for me. For one thing, I was planning to book the next leg of the trip once I got to Marrakesh so had to find an internet cafe in town -- this was very inconvenient/unpleasant versus sitting in the Riad and shopping for hotels (3) On the second evening of three day stay, they told me they didn't accept credit cards.

Staff were helpful and told me that they couldn't fix the wi-fi/credit card problems. Apparently, this Riad is owned by someone who lives in France which seems to explain the absentee landlord-type problems I experienced.

Staff is very helpful

We booked 2 nights and after 1 nights before coming back home. We made last booking after soending the first two nights there, but when we returned to the hotel at 1am, we didn't have a room. ( full booking)

It was probably due to a language barrier misunderstanding but they were extremely helpful and let us sleep at the receptionist room for free.

Rooms are well decorated and the pool is beautiful.

It's a very nice place. Good prices, good service. The manager Adil It's perfect, and other people of the riad are friendly and ready to help you for arrange tours or what you want And the food It's good, if you want to eat in the riad: restaurants of Djemaa-el-Fnaa or Ville Nouvelle aren't so good. If you want to live a riad experience with a reasoneable price, Riad Fabiola it's a right address in Marrakech. Claudio, Italy
