“Beautiful calm oasis, excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

If you decide to visit Marrakesh, be prepared for extreme heat (in the summer), noise and getting lost in the labyrinth that is the inner city (Medina). While I found this to be an experience well worth having, coming back to the riad after a day of exploring the city felt like heaven. Very calm, with beautiful authentic interior and good rooms with an excellent bathroom. The owner was very helpful, showing us things worth seeing on the map and providing recommendations on where to eat and what to look out for. The staff was also very friendly and the location of the riad is a good one, close to one of the gates of the Medina. I can recommend this place to just about anyone.

Special message for Idriss: the airport is open during the night and you can find a lot of people sleeping on the ground there ;)

Riad Adriana was the first hotel we stayed at in Morocco, and the welcome was great. Our host took the time to get a map and show us the various sites, and to provide some general tips on visiting Marrakech and Morocco. As we had a further trip planned he also provided some advice on other places to see and how to get there.

The room was lovely, clean and comfortable, all the staff was very friendly and breakfast was good as well (usual Moroccon breakfast consisiting of yoghurt, bread, pancakes, fruit, honey, jams, coffee and tea, served on the beautiful roof terrace). The location is good, somewhat hard to find on the first try (as is the case with most Riad's in a Medina) but a breeze after that. Also nice to note is that, unlike in some other Riad's, we were not billed for coffee, tea and water we had outside of breakfast, even after we mentioned this to our host.

All in all this has been the most pleasant stay we had in Morroco and we highly recommend it.

Beautiful quaint Riad in a great location. Rooms lovely and clean and roof terrace peaceful. Owners and staff so friendly couldn't do enough for you, they organised a special anniversary meal with dancers for us which was amazing. The owner will meet you from the transfer point and walk you to riad so you don't get lost. She also booked spa treatments for us and again walked us to the spa so helpful. It made our short but memento able experience just first class. We actually visited February 2012 lovely sunny days but chilly at night x enjoy !!

To start with, Marrakech is a very exotic and enjoyable vacation destination: the architecture of the old city is very well preserved and authentic (id you disregard the many tourist shops they are housing), and as such, very photogenic. After our experience in late June, would suggest the following itinerary: 3 nights Marrakech in a Riad in the old city (Like Riad Adriana), 1 night in Imlil at the foot of the the Toekbal mountain, and 1 night in Essaouira on the coast.
About Riad Adriana, a fully concur with most ofnthe previous reviews: it is a lovely Riad in a local, less-touristic neighbourhood of Marrakech. And still very conveniently located. Melanie and her staff have been excellent hosts, helpful with giving all kinds of advice on whatbto do. and where to go. As we also stayed in another Riad, closer to Jema al Fna, I found Adriana to be good value for money. No need to stay too close to the square as after one or two visits you will have had enough of it. Morrocans are very friendly and most of them speak two or three languages, including French and english. It was quite hot though, and if possible, travel in Spring or Fall.

Riad Adriana was our first Riad in Morocco. We loved it...... the place was so beautiful, clean, decorated with so much taste, tranquil, relaxing. Moreover, Melanie, Idris and the whole crew were so nice and helpful and ready to do anything for us. We got great tea, treats, recommendations, help with reservations and a good breakfast. Idris even offered and got me one of the maids to go with me and help me buy spices from the market. Everything was wonderful and if we will visit Marrakesh again we will definetely stay again at Riad Adriana. Thank you Melanie, Idris and the whole crew!!!

Room Tip: If you like to have Internet stay downstairs, if you like more quiet stay upstairs :-)

This was my first time to Morocco which can definitely be overwhelming and exhausting but Riad Adriana was honestly like an oasis (which you need visiting Marrakech). They have a great shuttle from the airport, and staff are so helpful, warm and inviting. The riad itself is clean, decorated with beautiful moroccan touches. I was greated on my arrival by traditional moroccan tea and treats by their kind employee Toufik and every morning you are served an amazing breakfast outside on the terraces (SOOOOOO GOOD!!). Even when you don't ask for something the staff or lovely couple that runs the riad are there to help. They were amazing when I had to help my friend find a place to stay. I would definitely come back again. Merci

Riad Adriana is an oasis of tranquillity in a busy city. Idriss and Melanie are the best host/hostess we have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They arranged all our outings and coming back to the riad was like coming home in the evening, relaxing and satisfying. The food in the riad was the best we tasted anywhere in Marrakech, so much so that we ate in the riad four nights out of seven. The staff were courteous, very helpful and best of all, they were happy! Special mention must be made of Tewfiq and Samira who made our stay so special. You really do have to experience a stay at Riad Adriana to appreciate how good it is.
