“Just book it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I honestly have to stay that this is one of the best places I've ever stayed. It's a beautiful building, just as one imagines a riad to be, and the facilities are very good. It's really well located near the souks and only 10 minutes from the main square yet it's tranquil and relaxing. The staff are superb and the owner, Emmanuelle, couldn't be more helpful. We loved everything about this riad and would recommend it unreservedly.

Room Tip: If you're tall, don't book the room with the low ceiling in the bathroom!

Stunning. Just stunning.

Beautiful place, perfectly located, friendly and helpful staff, Emmanuel (the owner) was a delight, fabulous food, excellent rooms, wonderful terrace garden.

Go. You couldn't possibly be disappointed.

This is a delightful place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Perfectly situated in the Medina just 5 minutes walk from the souks and 10-15 min from the main square. Our room was large and really comfortable, overlooking the courtyard pool. The outside space is brilliant - either in the shade around the pool or in the sun on the roof terrace with plenty of loungers to choose from. Breakfasts are sumptuous and you can also have simple lunches and dinner in the riad. The airport transfer is a nice touch (an extra) and saves you the hassle of a taxi and finding your way through the alleys to the riad! Wi Fi is free. Riad Chergui is a perfect oasis to stay in the crazy city of Marrakech!

Room Tip: We liked Room 1 (Duff) overlooking the pool - not all rooms have such a nice view.

We've just returned from a week in Marrakech where we spent our first 3 nights here. After a long journey from Luton with the notorious Ryan Air we were thrilled to see that Riad Chergui is even more delightful in person than it looked when we booked online. Ahead of our visit they'd got in touch to offer us a transfer from the airport (highly recommend taking them up on his as central Marrakech - The Medina - is VERY confusing, particularly at night after a long journey) and dinner (which was delicious). The entire property is stunning, peaceful, cool with lots of nooks and crannys to relax and read a book with a glass of wine. We loved our stay here and would recommend it without hesitation.

My wife and I spent 4 days there last September and we simply loved it. The beds were so comfortable, the service welcoming, the bathrooms flawless and the countless nooks to read or take a nap so beautiful. In the heart of the Medina, it is an oasis in a magical world and a bargain for all that you get. Wow!

a marvellous stay , Emanuelle is a delight and very welcoming , the Riad is a short walk from the main square , be careful of people wanting to show you around and ask you for money .

Breakfast was very good , we had dinner there on our first night , it was excellent , they also do snacks and light meals during the day .

It is very clean and beautifully kept .

Room Tip: higher floor rooms are better

I first stayed at Riad Chergui in July 2011 on a side trip from some business. I am happy to say that my stay this July, two years later, was just as great. Even better really. I brought my 18-year old son and his reaction was just as mine was in 2011, the Riad is jaw-dropping beautiful. Sabine is a thoughtful and accommodating hostess and the staff is very attentive.

The Riad is an oasis of peace and tranquility in Marrakech; the pool is particularly wonderful. It is well-located and the perfect place to relax between morning and late-afternoon outings during the blistering midday summer heat. The staff prepares a sumptuous breakfast each day and accommodates requests if you need to leave early for an excursion before regular breakfast hours. Lunch and dinners are available with notice, though I have never tried them, I imagine they are as good as everything else at the Riad.

Two great discoveries for food near the Riad this trip: Chez Yassine- great, cheap local fare. Henna Cafe- great food, good prices- all profits go to charity to help local Moroccans (artwork for sale too). Both have listings here on TA.

Room Tip: If the Riad isn't full, ask if an upgrade is available.
