“great riad, with plenty of nice touches to make it a great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

after visiting a number of riads on our trip, this was a great riad to stay at last. With free refreshments it meant we had Moroccan tea and water on tap. room had A/C, great en suite and little touches that made you feel as home, like sheet and duvet if you required.

great restaurants recommended, the only disappointment was Aziz, the fluent English speaker host was only about on our last night to discuss payment and airport transports. The staff, although not all fluent English speakers, worked hard and were welcoming and friendly.

Room Tip: room are just over two levels which is good!

Really lovely hotel - helpful and friendly staff, lovely rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and definitely will recommend it to others. Plenty of nice little touches, and the roof even had a nice little pool (more a for a dip that laps!).

Location is good - it is a short walk to the central areas but feels a little calmer than those areas; don't be alarmed as you approach the hotel - the area might not look the best, but it seemed safe to us and we didn't feel nervous going back late at night.

Highly recommended.

My sister and I stayed for 5 nights and celebrated a 50th birthday. We could not have been happier with our choice of riad, selected because of the plunge pool on the roof and the excellent reviews. Aziz and his team really are the perfect hosts, making you feel at home and providing every sort of information required to make the stay completely stress-free. We wandered in to the kitchen to help ourselves to ice, drinks or plates, etc, and loved the laughing ladies who cooked and served the meals. Breakfasts are substantial but with a range of options and each day we explored the city full of energy after the comforts of the room and refreshments. On our last night we requested an evening meal and ate it on the roof under the floating linen hangings over a low table and soft calico sofas. It could not have been more perfect - with fading heat and the mesmeric call to prayer at dusk. We were privileged to have stayed during Ramadan and felt honoured to witness the riad staff - and the whole city - observing the strictures of this festival.

We did not visit any other riads but spoke to other guests who had transferred to Les Trois Mages after being dissappointed with their first choice. We could see that nothing was too much trouble to arrange, and the graciousness with which Aziz and team operate is humbliing. We could not recommend more highly.

Room Tip: We moved up from 2 nights on the ground floor to a double on the first floor, which we preferred thr...

We had the most amazing time here. Aziz, the manager, arranged for a taxi to collect us at the airport and deliver us practically to the door. At the riad we were greeted with mint tea and pastries, and Aziz spent a good half hour giving us an orientation - pointing out on a map some sights to see, how to get to the souks and the square, and even gave us a few tips on bargaining.

The riad itself is a dream - between our gorgeous and comfy room (Jasmine), the rooftop oasis and its pool, and the wonderful music room and its mini-library, we often found it hard to tear ourselves away to see the incredible city of Marrakech. As for the location, all the major sights are within an easy walk - the square and souks are about ten minutes away, depending on how long it takes you to make your way through the hordes of friendly Moroccans stopping you to say hello (and detour you through the tanneries - be firm!).

The food at the riad was excellent. Saida is brilliant cook, and the meals we had here were excellent value and as good as the posh restaurant we went to on our last night.

Finally, if you have time, do look into the excursions offered by the riad. We went on a tour of the Berber villages, and our guide Mohammed was friendly, well-informed, and delightful company.

We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Jasmine, on the first floor. Very quiet and cosy, with a beautiful bathroom (shower on...

This was by far the best and most beautiful riad we visited. The management and staff were so incredibly friendly and accommodating - even leaving the read to pick up a pizza for us. We were looking for a driver to drive us to the Casablanca airport in the middle of the night and the management arranged everything for us! They even let us stay at the riad during the day after check-out. Everything was so clean and beautiful. There are multiple eating areas and food is excellent. They also allow guests go into the kitchen at any time and grab free bottled water. The pool is beautiful and there are amazing cushioned pool chairs to lay on. There are also multiple instruments (including a piano) and beautiful areas outside your room you can hang out in. Definitely a five star experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing! We stayed in two different rooms and they both were great and beautiful!

Les Trois Mages is really special. Recommended to us by Rachel Blech from SheherazadVentures this riad is in the heart of the medina and beautifully appointed with rooms named after the three wise men – we stayed in Balthazar, the wise Arabian scholar (we couldn’t find the 12 litre bottle of champagne of the same title though the ‘wine did floweth’ at dinner earlier). The colours, fabrics and furniture, along with gold fittings in the bathroom made us feel fully indulged! We made friends at dinner, including the owners Annamay from Donegal and her partner Tony, and the tagine of fresh fish, cooked by ‘in-house’ cook Saida, was simply sublime. The riad is full of surprises, on the roof terrace there is a swimming pool and snug chill-out zones, and off the central courtyard there is a music room with piano and assorted instruments – the perfect party room. We experienced a very warm welcome, great generosity and hospitality. We want to go back, again and again. We can think of nowhere better to stay (and have a party!) when in Marrakech.

Declan and Angela.

It was my second stay at the Riad Les Trois Mages, and it was just as beautiful as I remembered. This time I was eager to share it with my girlfriends, so for a small extra cost three of us slept in the Melchoir room. My friends were absolutely delighted with the Riad: from the roof terrace to the music room, absolutely everything is as pictured - if not better! Breakfast is plentiful and fresh, and the lunch absolutely fantastic - some of the best food we had out there.

Where the riad comes into its own is the staff. Aziz was absolutely wonderful in welcoming us, providing a very detailed and clear map - if we could follow it, anyone can! Nothing was too much trouble, and the complementary mint tea is always a bonus. I unfortunately became ill on my last night - and the women on duty took the best care of me. Fresh honey and orange water was delivered to my door, slices of orange to suck on, iced flannels and a huge fan - everything someone with heat stroke could possibly desire/need was delivered to me without fuss/extra cost. I couldn't be more thankful.

We went on the guided tour, something which we found both fascinating and informative - and had dinner every night in the square. The highlight of the trip for me has to be our hammam experience at the Heritage Spa. It is also worth visiting the Henna Cafe (which is near the spa) as it not only does fantastic food and henna which is the authentic brown (not black and cheap like in the square) but is also a non profit organisation for those in need. As a group of three female 20 year olds, we were worried that we would be a target for trouble. And whilst we were a subject of great attention, never once did I fear for my safety.

I would 100% recommend this Riad to anyone.
