“Wonderful place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011 via mobile

We loved it. Location is great - 3m walking to the main square. Service is excellent - Elsa and her staff. The Riad is perfect - simple and tranquil!

I can't recommend this highly enough. My partner & I, (both 30), were recommended this Riad by friends. They cited the great host, Elsa and great food as the reasons. They were totally right. On arrival, Elsa had upgraded us, as the Riad was quiet during our stay. We ate in on the first night and were not disappointed - waited on hand & foot, in tranquil surroundings. The Riad itself is a contrast to the busy Marrakech surroundings - tasteful in it's design and furnishings - mostly white walls and polished cement. (In a good way). You will not be disappointed if you stay here. We weren't.

Located within the Medina, Riad W is a beautifully restored Raid combining both contemporary and modern designs. We had two rooms for 2 nights. The Suite was very spacious and decorated nicely. The open courtyard had a lounging area and a dipping pool which was a treat for our daughter. Elsa was not their, however the lady who was looking after was very helpful and always smiling which is something you want to see when you are with family and kids. Breakfast was good with a selection of bread, yogurt and traditional Moroccan crepes. Mint tea is available upon request and always goes down well! Location is perfect. a 5-10 minute walk to the main square but away from the hustle and bustle which is important as people are out wandering the square till very late! Overall a very nice and pleasant experience, highly recommended

After my stay at the Riad W last november, my longing for that place made me fly back to Marrakesh and enjoy it again.
To be able to live in such a quiet and sweet place, beiing in the middle of the city, so close to the medina , wich transports you back in time is a marvel.
I simply adore it !
therefore, I highly recomend this experience, with all the magic it involves, with Hammams, good food and mystery.
At the riad , I felt like a princess, so well taken care of a the girls working there and the Hostes, who really is absolutly helpfull in all ways !

The Riad W is located in the Medina, very close to the famous Jmaa El-Fna square. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the Riad is pleasant enough.
Our group occupied 3 rooms in the Riad and there were a couple of problems with the air-conditioning in 2 of them: one stop working on the second day and wasn't fixed during our stay (which is a disastrous considering the temperatures were between 42º during the day and above 30º in the night ...) and the other leaked water inside the room.
The staff was friendly, but unable to solve that problem; the hostess Elsa was in Spain so maybe things are smoother when she's arround.
Another two negative notes: a) it's a cash-only Riad so be prepared (I've just checked the site and there isn't any reference to that...) and b) there is no place to take a shower or change your clothes (in case of leaving in a late afternoon flight ), just a tiny-tiny (less than a single m2...) wc.

...helpful, superb food, great service...I could go on for pages! Elsa was there on our first morning to talk about Marrakech and suggest some of the best sights. We still got thoroughly lost but always felt totally safe in what is a mad but friendly city.
I would strongly recommend the Riad W, it is about 5mins walk from the Souks and is a little bit of paradise to return to when you have had enough of the hustle and bustle of the Medina. A big thanks to Elsa and all of her team for making our stay so enjoyable and relaxing, not forgetting Ahmed our taxi driver who took us for a great day to the Atlas mountains, hugely enjoyable despite the torrential rain!

fantastic, would recommend it to anyone. Elsa was so helpful, even walked us to the square so we could find our way easily. The staff were so lovely, so smiley and efficient and amazing cooks...had dinner the first night and it was a great start to Moroccan home cooked food. ideal location, right in the middle of everything but somehow still peaceful. only thing negative were the pillows for me...very hard...i'd ring my own if i went again!
