“Wonderful Arabian Nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful Riad in Marrakesh. It is in a league of its own as far as quality is concerned. The decor and fittings are very high class with beautiful authentic touches. The service is magnificent. The food is delicious and charmingly served. Altogether we would definitely stay at Riad Noir D'Ivoire again.

We spent two nights at the Riad Noir d'Ivoire to celebrate a special birthday. It was an absolutely magical experience. We stayed in the top floor suite. The decor is beautiful and creates an authentic Moroccan mood. We enjoyed a sumptuous dinner by candelight in the courtyard. The service was superb. We have been to Marrakesh before and will always choose this one in the future.

Spend a wonderful weekend here late May of this year. All I can say is words dont describe the level of luxury and yet 'at home' feeling. The weekend felt like weeks of pure relaxation. I would love to go back again next year. Cant wait!

Room Tip: There are suites with a private roof terrace and jaccuzi

The Riad Noir d'Ivoire was simply spectacular. It has a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere and the architecture brings out the culture of Marrakech. It is located in the depths of the Medina and has a lovely traditional feel to it. Personally, I love to see the culture and liveliness of the Medina, the experience was made better as we had our luggage taken by "Couscous" the riad donkey. The service is very good, special thanks to Rebecca who was wonderful at suggesting things during our stay. There is a warm, luxurious feeling to the riad. Overall, I had a wonderful stay and I am looking forward to going back soon.

Room Tip: I would suggest the Panther Suite. Extremely Luxurious!!!

This luxury hotel, tucked away on a small Marrakech street, is like a secret oasis in the middle of the crowded city. The room was hugely spacious, the view over the new courtyard unbelievable (especially at night with the waterfalls and pool illuminated) but what really made our experience was the very attentive service and the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The private hammam is something I would personally really recommend; I don't think I've ever felt more pampered. Altogether a great place to stay.

Room Tip: I recommend any room in the new courtyard especially in the summer months, as they overlook the beau...

First, I would echo all of the wonderful things others have said about Riad Noir d'Ivoire. The place is beautiful, and Rebeca is an amazing and attentive manager. We stayed in the Zebra room, which looks as if it was designed for Coco Channel with a private terrace and jacuzzi. The spa was also fantastic.

But what really stands out are the attentions to detail. It starts from the time that Cous Cous the burro carries your bags through the narrow hectic streets if the medina. When you arrive at the Riad, it is like you are entering another world. Rebeca greeted us with a welcome drink as we soaked in the magic atmosphere around the pool that was transformed as night fell and the area was bathed in candles and moonlight. The entire hotel is impeccable, with great attention to detail in every corner. Rebeca has clearly assembled a first-class team.

Rebeca gave us great recommendations for restaurants and sights in the city, and other useful tips on navigating the place and the people.

The entire staff was fantastic and very attentive. For example, one morning my wife couldn't find one of her earrings despite us both searching the room. We informed Meriem, one of the staff, and she immediately went to our room and returned with our earring before we had even finished our tea.

We had a fantastic exerience all the way around. We travel extensively and favor small boutique luxury hotels. Riad Noir d'Ivoire is a gem, but the real magic lies with the staff and the service.

We are very seasoned international travellers and had the pleasure of spending three nights at this gem in Marrakech. We echo all the other excellent reviews in the comfort, style, service and location. What sets our experience apart was our unusual request for assistance with kosher meals and guidance with synagogue services. In advance of our stay Rebecca was exceptionally gracious and willing to accommodate our requests.
She found a kosher caterer to provide our two kosher sabbath meals which we enjoyed with the personal service of the staff in the comfort of the riad. The staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. They helped us with directions to the synagogue and overall we had a most memorable sabbath experience. Thanks to all the staff.
The private individual experience in the onsite hammam is an experience not to be missed. We would highly recommend a stay here.
