I'm currently a student studying abroad and stopped here for the first part of our spring break with five of my friends. Altogether we travelled to Marrakech, Fez, and Chefchaouen and despite paying nearly twice as much in the other cities, this was by far the nicest, cleanest, and most hospitable Riad we stayed in. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfasts were great. However, what brought me to write this review (I rarely do) was the extent to which the staff catered to our needs. The single gentlemen who works at night surprised me with his willingness to help. When I didn't have enough cash, he borrowed his friend's motorbike and accompanied me late at night to the nearest ATM which was quite a walk. Do yourselves a favor and stay at this riad. From the airport pickup to the beautiful layout of the rooms, everything was perfect.

I found that Riad El Noujoum was perfect for my stay in Marrakech. The place was very clean, it had an amazing rooftop and hot tub, and it is situated nicely in the old city. The staff was amazing, sincere and helpful in every regard.

We have just returned from Marrakech and had the pleasure of staying in one of the suites (Sirius) at this beautiful Riad. We couldn't have wished for more. The Riad itself was simply stunning and so peaceful and the staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. We really enjoyed sunbathing on the roof terrace and the hot tub, it was so relaxing to chill out there listening to the bird song and occasionally the call to prayer from the nearby mosques after a hectic day in the medina. The room was huge and the bathroom was amazing with large bathtub, 2 sinks, beauty area and separate loo. The Riad is situated some 20 mins or so walk from the main square, but the Kasbah neighbourhood was lovely and perhaps we wouldn't have had the opportunity of seeing it if we had not stayed there. All in all an amazing experience and holiday.

After navigating your way through the warren of alleyways to reach the Riad, you will be more than pleasantly surprised when you enter. The courtyard with its sunken pool and the total calmness that awaits you, disturbed only by bird song, relaxes you in an instant. The staff are superb, nothing is too much trouble despite having to communicate in virtual sign language due to my lack of French ability. The rooms are as they appear in the pictures, authentic Moroccan, welcoming and clean. You may wish to opt for a massage and relax further on the roof terrace with a glass of wine in hand whilst the madness of Marrakech carries on around you. I highly recommend this beautiful Riad,

Room Tip: As breakfast is served in the courtyard, I would recommend a first floor room

The taxi driver booked through the Riad waited for one hour at the airport (our flight wad delayed) and welcomed us with a bunch of roses.The Riad is a beautiful building clean and well maintained in the Kasbah district close to the Saadian Tombs. The room was impressive, spacy and had a huge bath tub. We were served a delicious breakfast. Since it was my 50th birthday the Riad invited the two of us for dinner which was served on the terrace. It was high quality delicious typical food accompanied by a bottle of red wine. We hardly heard the other hotel guests and had a relaxing stay and would definitely recommend this Riad.Thank you to Khadija and your team!

Room Tip: go for the Venus Suite if you are looking for a romantic getaway

As soon as we walked into this beautiful riad from the madness of the streets in Marrakech we couldn't believe how instantly the atmosphere changed from chaotic to totally peaceful.
The place is spotless and beautifully decorated and furnished in the traditional Moroccan style.

Our room was on the ground floor and was very nice but then we were upgraded on our last night to a suite on the 1st floor which was fabulous.

The staff are lovely, some do speak limited English though so a few words of French are useful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast didn't seem to have a set time so it didn't matter if you got up early or late. We generally slept until late as the rooms were so dark at night.

Beers were cheaper in the riad than anywhere we found that sold them elsewhere (220 dirhams as opposed to 600). There are only a few places selling alcohol in the medina so its a good idea to buy some on the plane, especially as a lot of the rooms have a fridge.

We were told a couple of days before we left that we would need to pay our bill in cash but we were given plenty of notice about it and paid on our last night.
On our last day there was a bit of a mix up with our transfer to the airport but the staff sorted it out very quickly and the riad owner gave us a lift there straight away.

We had a hammam session there which left our skin lovely and smooth, and the plunge pool was very refreshing. Unfortunately the hot tub was out of action, not sure why but it might be worth checking if this is important to you.

Overall we found this a very relaxing and good value stay and would certainly return here.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are quieter but ground floor are cheaper
