“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this stunning Riad in April 2012. The hospitality by Dani and Julien was exceptional, and the location, cleanliness and morrocan charm was exactly what we were looking for in our short stay in Marrakesh. We would highly recommend this Riad.

We were based at the Riad Khabia for our 5 nights in Morocco. Julien and his Mother were the most warm and pleasant hosts we've ever had the pleasure to meet. The Riad itself was stunning and tranquil, essential after a hot day on the streets of Marrakech. On arrival we were given a comprehensive overview of the city, along with a map complete with highlights and recommendations.
Our hosts assisted us with our travel arrangements, gave us an orientation of the city and tailored their suggestions to our personal requirements as photographers. We've never taken photos of the place we were staying before, but the Riad and in particular our suite (the Africa Suite) warranted the attention.
The added bonus of the whole trip was having mint tea and conversation with Julien. He is charming and full of useful information and is almost as interesting as Marrakech itself. Sipping mint tea with him as he informed us about the country and its rich history was a delight. He really is proud of Marrakech and its people, and the Riad Khabia truly is a great base for anybody to see the best of the city.

Room Tip: The whole riad was lovely, but we certainly enjoyed the suite which had a balcony over the pool.

My boyfriend and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this Riad for 5 days, 4 nights.
I was not expecting the level of service that we received! It was amazing.
The owner and his mother welcomed us very warmly and gave us an excellent orientation tour of Marrakech with a map with their personal recommendations on it (because it is notoriously easy to get lost). They also went out of their way to help us when booking our atlas mountains tour, and they booked us (and took us to!) a traditional Morroccan restaurant (which was excellent!). This was all done out of the kindness of their hearts and not for commission, which is how a lot of places in Marrakech do business.
The room was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Large bathroom and we had lounges and a coffee table. It was also cleaned every day so when we came back from being out, everything was fresh and tidy.
The rooftop terrace was lovely to sit on while having breakfast to soak up the spring sun. It also has an excellent view across to the atlas mountains and some comfy sun lounges to relax on and enjoy the sun set.
All in all, the owners of this riad couldn't have made our stay any better. I will definitely be recommending this place to all friends and family!!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the suites but all rooms looked as good as each other. I would recommend the ai...

We can only agree to all the other fantastic reviews: beautiful room, absolutely clean, great location, very tasteful decorations...

But here are the things that stuck out for us:

The service that Dani and Julien offer is the best we ever experienced. No 5* hotel can keep up with this. Any question was answered and we couldn't express any wish since they were fulfilled without asking. They arranged for excursions and reservations at any time of the day. The mint tea - also any time of the day - is great, especially since we were travelling in January and the temperature dropped about 15°C when the sun was gone. That was one of our worries before travelling, that the room was too cold. But they had little heaters in the room and turned them on before we came back from our outings so that the room was very cosy and warm. And the room was so clean. Anything we had lying around was put away or arranged, so harmony was back in our room. It was like coming home, and that is what you need after the crazy - and wonderful - days in Marrakech.

One of the reasons we chose Riad Khabia was the view on the terrace. It is magnificient. The Atlas mountains seem so close and you overlook all roofs of Marrakech. On the other side you have the Koutoubia mosque, which is beatifully lit at night.

Our tips:
Eat in the Riad. Dani is the most wonderful cook and she combines maroccan cooking with here own ideas - simply delicious. We only regret of not having eaten more often "at home".
Take the cooking course that they can arrange for you. It is a wonderful experience not only for cooking but also for getting to know the berber traditions and life styles.

Thank you for making our vacation a dream.

My brother and I recently returned to Riad Khabia for our second stay. Everything is clean, orderly and otherwise comfortable. Julien and his mother provide a great example of all-inclusive, professional hospitality, from comprehensive information on Marrakech and surroundings to delicious mint tea and a genuinely tranquil atmosphere.

My family and I had a wonderful time when we stayed in Riad Khabia in December. As soon as we arrived Julien prepared a pot of mint tea and gave us a great overview of the city. He even walked us from the Riad to the main square, providing suggestions on where to eat and answering our numerous questions.

On our second day in Marrakech we had a scheduled cooking class and had asked Julien for directions. Much to our surprise instead of simply providing an idea of how to find this class he personally walked us all there. It was a good 20-30 minutes from the Riad and exemplifies the level of service above and beyond what we expected. We were daily amazed and appreciative of the kindness shown to our kids from finding videos they would enjoy watching to enduring endless Harry Potter trivia questions. None of us wanted to leave.

The room (Yakout Suite) was perfect for a family of 4 - very clean, nicely decorated and quiet.

By far the nicest hotel owners I've ever encountered, this was the finest place I've ever stayed in. Faultless rooms, service, and the amount of advice and information from Julien was brilliant - I would have happily stayed there permanently. You won't regret staying here for a second, it was the place I enjoyed most in all of Morocco
