“Worthy of a Romantic Movie Set”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

From the introduction to the charming, old Marrakesh Medina, being led to the Riad Honey by the hotel mamager through the narrow streets, to the first view of the towering hotel interior with candles and lanterns everywhere, this small hotel was a romantic destination and a experience worth remembering for a long time. The city of Marrakesh is lost in ancient time, busy at night, and full of charm. It is worth the trip to Morocco all by itself. The stay at Riad Honey made it all come together in a safe, friendly environment with great meals, comfortable accommodations and plenty of photo opportunities. It is designed with artistic flair, leaving you with great memories of a comfortable world, enclosed within walls, yet open to all visitors with a friendly and helpful style.

Lovely riad managing to avoid the disney-fication of some traditional places. The staff were so warm and friendly, coming out to search for us when we met our navigational nemesis in the souk and were in danger of being alte for our flight. Lovely food and great place to chill out. Only slight downside is that it is a bit away from the main tourist haunts of the medina so a bit of a walk but it more than makes up for this in character and atmosphere.

We can't say enough about the amazing staff at Riad Honey. Lachcen and Yousef are the kindest, most welcoming and helpful hosts any vistor to Marrakech could possibly hope for. The food at Riad Honey is also excellent: generous complimentary breakfasts, well-prepared dinners (wine is also available), and abundant mint tea. Our room, and the riad itself, was very peaceful, nicely kempt, and clean, with charming and tasteful touches of traditional Moroccan decor. Although the riad's location can feel a bit removed from the main souks and the Place Jemaa el-Fna, it is only a 15 minute walk away, and this distance can be a great relief from the hectic tourist bustle. Plus, the Riad is very close to a main gate, where you can easily catch a petite taxi into the new city or wherever.

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!
