“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Budget prices but am unsure what else you need. Beautiful bedrooms. Sunny roof terrace and small pool for cooling off. A lovely snug of a lounge for a night cap. The staff were excellent and made us feel at home. Breakfast was fresh juice, coffee, pancakes and toast. The welcome meal was also very good. Not all the staff speak English (all speak French) but that didn't deter them from always being helpful. I would go to this riad again.

At Riad Adika, your escape starts in the courtyard equipped with a pool and follows you to your room! The food is delicious. People are proud of their hotel and they offer a great service. Nothing's missing! You'll have a great choice of activities and services. All of this enchantment in situated in a lively area, just next to the medina.

From where I'm from, the expression ''right up your street'' meens that if something is ideal for you, it is right up your street. Riad Adika was ideal for me! Choosing this hotel was the very best choice I could have made. It should be your very first step into Marrakech!

My only advice: you should take it for a test drive!

Our stay in Riad Adika will remain in our minds for long!
The owners, Dominique and Guillaume welcomed us in their most friendly and warm way. The ambiance and the decoration of the riad contributed to make our stay an enjoyable and delightful moment.
The staff is so thoughtful and gentle that we were feeling in a palace!
Food was excellent and tasting local recipes thoroughly and nicely prepared by the cook lady was of a great experience!
We (we were 2 couples) highly recommend Riad Adika for those who like to make a break and dip into a nice, smooth and friendly environment!!
Well done Dominique and Guillaume!

I was looking for a beautiful place to spend the week the holiday with my husband.
We were so happy: the riad was beautiful, quiet and so close from Jemaa el Fna!
We loved the atmosphere, the traditionnal food, and the kindness of the owner.
The staff was really nice and helpful!
We completely enjoyed our stay and really recommend it!

We spent a week in this Beautiful and Peaceful Riad Adika. This is a very special place, with very comfortable rooms. Everybody, working here is just so "welcoming", that we found our vacation time too short. They are the reflect of the wonderful Moroccan hospitality. We just love the Riad, and cannot wait wait to come back !!

We needed to find a riad in a hurry after being let down with hotels in Marakech and this one came to our rescue. Although it is quite out of the way, you can find your way around quickly and easily and the peace and quiet is a nice contrast to the souks. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are really helpful and friendly. The rooms are lovely and all unique in style. The riad has a little pool which is ideal after being in the heat on the roof top terrace. I can't really fault this riad one bit and would like to say a huge 'thank you!' from my friend and I for looking after us so well.

Riad Adika is a peaceful place to stay among the maze of narrow streets in the chaotic medina of Marrakech, although it is a bit out of the way -20 minute-walk from the famous Jemaa El Fna- so you need to take a taxi specially at night. To get to the riad you have to pass through a good 500m of narrow poorly (or not lit at all) streets that get narrower and narrower. It is actually quite intimidating getting to the riad from where the taxi leaves you, since the neighbourhood is the old and dirty part of Marrakech. The staff was friendly and helpful but on the whole the riad is too expensive for the facilities it really offers. We booked three nights there in a" luxury hotels" page. The photos made it look bigger than what it really was.There was a sitting area with TV and small library. The so-called pool- really a pond with a little fountain and a slight smell of sewage- was in the middle of the dining area where you had breakfast or dinner. Although the solarium on the top floor was a nice place to relax-with all kinds of plants and small trees-, the covers of the sunbeds were broken and had soaked water so you got all wet when you lay down. The so-called fitness centre was a couple of exercise bikes and an eliptic walker. The hammam was a small steam bath and a massage room. We had booked the room Qamra on the ground floor. The rooms on the ground floor opened directly onto the dining area. They had little wooden windows and old doors so they were dark and had no privacy. We, therefore, asked the manager for another room on the first floor. It was a so-called suite. And although it was beautifully decorated, its only facilities were a minibar and a safe-box. No satellite TV, heating or air-conditioning. The bathroom was poorly illuminated and the shower tray didn't drain. Similarly, the breakfast was also quite disappointing: O.J., tea or coffee, butter, jam and bread. Finally, when we checked out , what a coincidence! they had a problem with their credit card machine and we had to pay in cash! As I say, on the whole rather disappointing.
