“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Lahcen not only made us welcome but acted as our guide to the City, finding us a car to take us to the Atlas and a wonderful English-speaking tour guide for a morning exploring the Medina. The room was lovely, the breakfasts were delicious and the supper we had at the Riad was the best food we ate in Marrakech. The roof terrace acted as a rest spot - calm and quiet after the bustle of the town. Warmly recommended.

Already a lovely simple but well designed and tasteful riad, the commitment of the staff, led by Lahcen, is exactly what every traveller looks for. We were truly taken into Lahcen's care and he made sure we had the best experience we could have in a very short vacation of 3 days/2 nights.
A gem of a building behind a simple black door on the outskirts of Marrakech medina, it was still lovely to sit on the roof terrace at the end of November to eat the lovely breakfast. Breakfast was a lovely combination of local specialities, including the most tasty yoghurt I have tasted in a long while.
Lahcen, the manager, went to great lengths to make sure we had a good time. He even took the time to go with us to the Atlas foothills, which made the half day trip so much more interesting and informative. His restaurant tips were also spot-on. I would recommend this riad to everybody. Great value and a great break in another world!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, situated on the courtyard. Really quiet, despite the hum-drum of Marrakesh...

Had the most marvellous autumn holidays ever, love the simple charm of the Riad Honey.
With its pretty inner yard and terrace on the flat roof, where you can relax wonderfully, it is one of the most beautiful hotels I have visited.
After a fascinating day out in the city or the mountains around, entering the Riad is like coming home!
The food is delicious and the possibility of having dinner was a delight on any evening I spent there. The rooms are clean and lovely furnished, the service excellent.
As it is right in the Medina, you hardly have to walk 5 Minutes to visit the Souk, the Djemaa el Fna Square, Quessabin Mosque and other interesting places.
Highly reccomendable for anyone who'd like to spend some time in a most fascinating city!!!

This is a truly wonderful Riad in the heart of the Medina - about a 15 minute walk from the main square and very easy to find (even in the dark!). We stayed there for 2 nights in October and it was absolutely lovely-really peaceful and quiet. The Riad itself is beautiful and the rooms are of a very high standard. The breakfasts with freshly squeezed orange juice, pastries, eggs, home made yoghurt and mint tea on the roof terrace are a real highlight! The family that run the Riad are amazingly friendly, honest and helpful. We cannot recommend Riad Honey highly enough. You will no doubt have a fabulous stay here!

Imelda, Lahcen and the rest of the staff create a wonderful welcome team at Riad Honey. They arranged an airport transfer to get us to them and were quick to answer any pre-trip questions via email about our 5 day new years trip. We were able to relax on the beautiful roof terrace with mint tea to plan our stay. They were always available to hear about that days adventures or to give advice and help booking tours, activities or to print maps to direct us. The Riad has a great position in the medina allowing Mum and I to walk to all the key places. The food was great (and they were happy to meet any needs/requests) and the breakfast was incredible (especially the yoghurt!). We had in fact split our stay between this an another (more expensive) Riad, and were disappointed by comparison as there was none of the atmosphere and welcome of Riad Honey at the other place. We will certainly be going back and highly recommend it to anyone considering Marrakesh as a destination.

It is very peaceful and tranquil in the riad, which makes it a great place to relax after a busy day out and about in the very busy city of Marrakech. Breakfast is a nice assortment of home made yoghurt (yummy), breads, fig jam, boiled egg, cheeses, honey and tea / coffee which is served on the lovely roof terrace. The riad is situated about a 15 minute walk from Djemaa el Fna. We deliberately chose a riad that is not right on Djemaa el Fna so this worked really well for us. There are also a lot of local shops on the way, so the walk usually took me 20 - 30 minutes as I would stop to look at the shops and take photos along the way.

The folks who run the riad are lovely and really go out of their way to make sure that their guests are comfortable, and are extremely hospitable. We really enjoy chatting to Imelda who enjoys having a good conversation with her guests. My partner also got rather severe food poisoning while in Marrakech (20 toilet visits in 1 day!), and Lahcen called a doctor to the riad for us. The doctor managed to come in the evening, but by the time he left at 7pm, the local pharmacy had shut. So Lahcen used his motorbike to go to a pharmacy out of town with the doctor's prescription to obtain the medicines for us. He also took me 25 minutes out of town on his motorbike to go to the large supermarket (in the new part of Marrakech) to hunt down gatorade / powerade for my partner. We did not manage to find any gatorade in the end, however, I really enjoyed the ride on the motorbike!! Youssef who cooks and brings us our meals at the riad is also simply lovely and always has a very warm smile for us.

The riad is also able to organise private tours out of Marrakech for their guests. We wanted to do a 4 day road trip to the Sahara and south of Marrakech. The riad owners organised a driver for us, and recommended some nice accomodation as well. Lahcen's young son, Ibrahim, who happened to be free on 1 of the days, also joined us to help explain the sights along the way. We really enjoyed his company and it was great having a cheerful local with us.

We had a wonderful experience staying with this family and would not hesitate to go back if we were to return to Marrakech.
