“Fantastic Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I found this riad at a great price, I've never been to Marrakech before so didn't know anything about it in terms of location etc. I had emailed the riad to arrange airport transfer which worked really well. When we arrived at the riad it was all immaculately clean and there was always staff around to let us out.
The breakfast was great, all different breads, freshly squeezed orange juice, tea, coffee, and sometimes an egg or yoghurt, we rarely needed anything until evening dinner!
The location of the riad was a bit confusing at first and took us a while to find our way, but after getting rather lost the first couple of days we eventually found a route to the main square, however at night we then got disorientated again in the dark!!
Staying in the the riad was always very peaceful and quiet away from any hustle and bustle! The staff were helpful, despite limited English, however we met the manager later in the week who spoke excellent English, it was a shame we didn't meet him at the start when we arrived!
We also arrange to go on a couple of excursions to the Atlas Mountains which was a great trip stopping at various places in the way, and a great price at 25€ each for four people.
Overall a great little break (5nights) and a lovely riad to stay in, just make sure you have some sort of map, or we thought a compass would have been helpful so we knew at least which direction we were heading in!!

I booked this Riad through a travel agent. I have not been disappointed, the room was specious with traditional deco, very pleasant. The breakfast was generous and really tasty and fresh, the people were very helpful and and polite. We experience the Haman which was delightful. In general, we had a great experience and we highly recommend this hotel which was well located, in really good condition and amazing service.
Minuses: when we stayed there, the bathroom had sewage smell and the water wasn't evacuating properly in the shower and quite noisy in the morning only because our room was located close by the entrance of the Riad. Advise, ask for a higher up located room.

When you visit Marrakech and wonder what is behind those doors in the Medina you will never find out unless you stay at a Riad. The Amira Victoria is beautifully decorated with quality artisan work everywhere and the contrast of calm after the Souks is wonderful. A very warm welcome awaits, amazing rooms which each open on to a peaceful garden. The roof terrace, with it's pretty fountains and bougainvillaea is a lovely place to relax in the sun with mint tea - or a glass of wine! We had dinner on our first evening as we arrived late and didn't want to search for somewhere and were treated to simple tasty starters and a flavourful introduction to delicious Moroccan cuisine with a chicken tagine, followed by the most gorgeous strawberries, not in season in England! We had lots of requests before arriving, including a taxi from the airport which was very reasonable and most polite driver. I highly recommend a stay here and if you need anything please ask the Manager who is more than happy to help with everything. All the staff indeed were lovely.

Riad Amira Victoria is a fusion of authenticity and modern amenities. The ambience of the interior has a calming effect after the hustle and bustle outside.The courtyard is lovely, and typically all the rooms are leading from it. The Riad Amira Victoria is very centrally located, a walk to the square takes about 5 Mins. Along the way you may have to be firm with the locals whose enthusiasm to be your 'walking tour guides' can be annoying, the staff are the most reliable sources for those tourist activities and services. I believe Riad Amira Victoria is moderately price and their breakfasts were almost a banquet, and most importantly 'the fresh coffee was good'.
- I would definitely return.

Room Tip: The split level rooms are wonderful, very clean and well lit, allowing that extra privacy which is g...

An very nice Riad very close to the souks and the 'big square'. Kind staff and fine breakfast. Make sure you arrange a pick-up form the airport - the Riad is hard to find. The manager will be more than willing to arrange a trip to the Atlas mountains or Essaouira at the coast.

I was so delighted to return to Marrakech so picking a riad for the second time was tricky. But I could have not been more happy with my choice. Me and my friend were welcomed by the staff and the Manager like VIP after having been picked up at the airport by a kind and friendly driver. the Location was a little difficult to remember at first but we got the hang of it by the second day. it was centrsal yet lovely and quite, with a great ambience and lovely terraces where we could sip green tea and use our notebooks since wifi was free and very good. the room we got was excellent to say the least, spottles and beautifully decorated. the breakfast was there no matter ho late we got up, the gentle staff attended to us at anytime. I thank Mr. Sufyan and Mrs Najat for being so patient with us since were were often in and out at different hours but they would open and close the door for us anytime of the day and night. would recomend this riad to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and authentic stay in the Medina ..I would love to return myself :)

Location is so important in Marrakech. The Riad Amira Victoria is 5 minutes (on foot) from the Ben Youssef Medersa and the Musée de Marrakech; 7 minutes from the souks; and 15 from Jemaa f'Na. The Riad is extensive with a dozen good rooms, well furnished public areas, a hammam. Breakfast is copious and delicious. Dinners are simply superb with some of the best home-cooking to be had in Morocco. The staff are charming and efficient. Hassan, the owner, appears to speak all known languages and will organize transfers from the airport and so on. An excellent, fairly priced Riad.
