“look no further, best riad in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

In our two weeks in Morocco this was the best place we stayed in. A brilliant location in the medina close to the main square, the riad was clean, roomy, cool, relaxing, beautifully furnished, and had exceptional staff. The plunge pool was a bonus and provided welcome relief from the June heat. If you have spent hours trawling the internet looking for accommodation you can now relax, your job is here is done :)

we had a wonderful time in marrakech in June 2013. the Riad we stayed in is located in a side-alley off Rue Riad zitoun el Khedim, which leads you to Jamaa el Fnaa in a 5 min walk. whereas the square is really busy, noisy and exciting, it is great to come back to a quiet place with extremely kind and helpful personel. everything was perfect: the room, the bathroom, tasteful dining area, etc.
I would recommend Marrakech and especially Riad les Bougainvilliers to anyone. We had diner in the Riad twice prepared by Hanna which was excellent, and enjoyed the spa. A small pool on the groundfloor and a wonderful spacious rooftop terrace. Moncef guides us to places we could not find on our own...
If (more like WHEN) we go back to marrakech we would definitely choose this hotel again.

We picked this Riad out after extensive research and it worked out fine. The best thing about this Riad was its location - just a few minutes from El Jamaa square. Also they had a great roof area for sunbathing and rooftop viewing, and a plunge pool at ground level. And it's lovely inside. Plus the staff are really helpful and friendly. Our room was absolutely fine; it was a bit dark due to the nature of a Riad (no outside windows) but was large and the bed was super comfy. I have to say that I was not quite appreciative of the Riad features - one significant one is that noise travels all around the courtyard due to the way they are set up so it can be quite noisy if people are talking in the central area late at night although this was not a major problem. We did not eat here in the evening here so cannot comment on the food really, but I thought breakfast was somewhat limited and a bit boring after a few days.
Note that the directions (from Jemaa el Fna) to the Riad on the website (www.riadlesbougainvilliers.com) are very good - although you need to translate from simple French - fairly easy online. We made our own way to the square and found the Riad quite easily once we had our bearings. What you have to do is find the Cafe Toukbal for the start of the directions - it's to the right of all the rooftop restaurants. And don't expect la rue Riad Zitoun El Kdim through the arch to be a road - it's just a narrow walkway, like a lot of the 'streets' in the medina. So just get a taxi to the square, and it's a few hundred yards from the arch and fairly easy to find with the directions.
At the end of our stay we thought it was a good choice to stay at this Riad, although to be fair we had nothing to compare it with being our first trip. Not sure we would come back to Marrakech; we were somewhat disenchanted by all the people here trying to extract money from you, often on the pretence of being helpful.

A lovely Riad in the heart of the chaos of Marrakech. A little tricky to find initially - down a twisting narrow alleyway (typical of the old city) - but behind the beautiful door you step into a quiet tastefully decorated courtyard which is a welcome respite from the outside world. Extremely friendly and helpful staff will take care of you and make you feel very welcome. Our twin room was simple but clean and had everything we needed.

I also recommend eating dinner there at least once - we found we did have to make sure we asked to book this at least a few hours in advance, but the food was delicious.

An excellent find! Everyone could not have been any more helpful. The rooms very comfortable, breakfast delicious. The Riad is just beautiful and in a perfect position to visit any area. A truly relaxing haven within a busy, amazing place. Thank you everyone for making our first trip to Marrekech very memorable.

Loved this little piece of heaven! Great and knowledgable staff, lovely rooms, very clean and typically moroccan. Would definitely stay here again if I were to return! I very much appreciated the organization of airport pick up /drop off and the fact that I was made to feel so at home.
Merci Beacoup!

We stayed at the Riad for two days over Christmas. Great service, beautiful room, and EXCELLENT food. We had a big room on the second floor. The bathroom was gorgeous, the bed was comfortable, and there was a great sitting area. We loved this place.
