“Wonderful stay in Riad Celia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We (three girls) stayed in the RIAD CELIA in March 2012.
It was really a wunderful riad: nice staff, clean rooms, nice terrace,cool patio, great location.
It is close from the Jemma El Fna (5 minutes walk) but really quiet.
We loved the place and will come back, should we be in Marrakesch again.
Nevertheless, the pillows were a little bit to hard and the staff could only speak little english.
But all in all I would really recommend the RIAD CELIA.

Room Tip: Take rooms 8-12 which are on the second floor and therefore more quiet and with lots of natural ligh...

Riad Celia is in an almost quiet spot set just a few minutes walk from the traditional markets in Jemaa El Fna. The rooms, although not modern by any standards, were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. Tea seemed to have been included in the price as we never paid for it. Highly recommended!

I have just come back from a fabulous holiday with my family (hubby and 2 kids) in Essaouira. We decided to leave Essaouira one day earlier to spend our last evening in Marrakech. We travelled by car so it was an easy decision. I rang Riad Celia to enquire about availability and we were offered the grand suite for a very good price. Parking was no problem on the Bahia parking. We paid 40 dh for the night (twice the price as in Essaouira) which was absolutely fine. When we arrived our room was nice and warm....what a treat! Our breakfast was the best of that whole week and the coffee tasted like 'coffee'. It was warm enough to sit out on the cozy terrace with the morning sun coming up. A pity i didn't get to meet Samira but i am back with a whole group of ladies in March when we leave for our anual trip into the South, so i know i will get that chance. A good place to stay with kids (8 and 5).

Room Tip: i would probably recommend the top floor rooms when travelling alone or with partner. For us the gra...

We stayed in the Kaidal Suite here & it was really nice. Great bed, great space & after walking through the medina all day lazing about on the couch with an ice cold drink gazing at the amazing tiles was the perfect way to cool down before heading out again! All the staff were really friendly & helpful. Sitting in the sun on the rooftop for breakfast surrounded by the smell of jasmine (which every now & again would also drift under the door of your room) was beautiful. We had dinner at the Riad on our first night & it was amazing. Location is fantastic, just a few minutes from Djemaa el-Fna.

Stayed here twice, once on the middle floor, and once on the terrace level. The Terrace was superior. Both were fine, with plenty of hot water, and a nice breakfast; I found the staff to be efficient but never intrusive. I think the middle floor was a little noisy as the bathroom window opened into the courtyard and some guests came in late one evening, but nothing serious. The terrace level was silent and lovely--and better than other places in Morocco.

I would not hesitate to stay here, and it is a good value for money.

I made the reservation, based only on reviews I read in this site. So, I was a little afraid of to find, and, trust me, we were 16 friends, we all adored the hotel. Charming, clean, central, everything we wanted, and very cheap.
Don't hesitate if you're trying something cheap, clean, quiet and friendly.
