“Fabulous Fiftieth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I returned two years after my first visit to Noir d'Ivoire to celebrate my 50th birthday party with friends and family, so taken had I been with it the first time I visited. I booked the 6 rooms which make up one of the two wings of the Riad and we had the exclusive use of the roof top for breakfast and evening drinks and the courtyard below for our fabulous celebratory dinner complete with local musicians and belly dancers. Asaf and Hassan were extremely attentive and nothing was too much trouble. My plans and instructions for the weekend, were complied with right down to the last detail: the horse and carriage rides were ready and waiting, our tour guide was extraordinary and the atmosphere they created for our special celebration was sublime. The staff were so very friendly and accomodating and they even danced with us to the music..... No detail was spared, fresh flowers in my room, rose petals and candles in the bathroom, on the dinner table....It was indeed the truly magical place I had imagined it would be, to spend some very special moments. Everyone who accompanied us had a wonderful time!

Room Tip: All the rooms labelled as suites are fabulous. Of the two which are double rooms, Gazelle is the roo...

What a magical getaway that was specially planned by my husband for our 20th anniversary. Highlights for our stay at the Riad Noir d"ivore are the warm hospitality from Hassan and Afaf; the romantic dinner on the terrace; and the dip into the jacuzzi early morning. The elegant décor, attentive yet discrete staff, and playful cats all added to the luxurious and welcome feel of our private residence in Marrakech Medina! We hope to be back!

If you want to live a in a fairytail, the Riad Noire D'Ivoire is the best place to be. Excellent service. Very pleasant and kind staff always there for your well-being. Hassan, the guest relation manager, makes everything possible: Reservations for superb dinners in roof-terrace restaurants, tour-guides, expeditions to the High Atlas Mountains or tips for outstanding shopping experieces. Mama pampers you with flavourful tajines and delicious bastillas. Mme Coco introduces you into Marrocan Hamam rituals. You can have breakfast 24/7 and may choose between "poolside" or "rooftop". Probably the only riad having a transport mule named Cous-Cous in the Medina!
The rooms are huge, furnished elegantly and very tastefully. Silver sinks, separate bathrooms, huge chandeliers tone on tone. In short: a perfect place to be. I would at any moment travel to Marrakesh again and at any rate choose Noir D'Ivoire again. After one week I felt like a family member and was sorry flying home again.

I booked the Riad as a weekend away birthday present for my husband. The Riad from start to finish was just amazing from the beautiful zebre suite the staff and the lovely breakfasts of fresh fruit and freshly baked pastries on our private terrace! We ate in the little alcove round the pool on the first night which was very romantic, with rose petals scattered on the table and delicious food. Hassan also kindly invited us to watch the belly dancers that had been privately hired by another group staying at the Riad (who had also kindly agreed to us watching) which was a lovely experience topped of by arriving back at the room to rose petals and candles. Nothing was too much hassle from restaurant bookings to shop recommendations and the staff were all very kind and friendly. We would love to return to Marrakech one day and would definitely go back to Riad noir d'Ivoire.

We do not need to add much more to the amazing reviews shared thus far, simply fantastic. We needed to unwind after a manic 6 month home refurb and the stay exceeded our expectations. Nicely chilled, unassuming, breakfast at a time you want - perfect!
Great location - easy walk through the medina and the new town.
Tip: If rooms appear full on a travel site, worth contacting the hotel direct.

Room Tip: If a light sleeper ask for an internal facing room as there can be street noise. Also avoid the loca...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Noire d'Ivoire and it was beyond amazing on so many levels and definitely the best place we have ever stayed. The riad itself is stunning and so beautifully designed with lovely touches everywhere you look. It's super peaceful, calm and amazingly relaxing. This itself may well be enough but on top of these exotic luxury surroundings comes the most fantastic utterly effortless service I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely, friendly and kind staff who are always on hand should you need anything but never intrusive. We literally spent the whole holiday marvelling at how wonderful everyone in the riad was. We ate out a couple of nights at other luxurious riads in the Medina and although they were also lovely in their own way, nothing was as good as the Riad Noire d'Ivoire and we always felt relieved to come through the door back "home". We were also upgraded to a suite which was such a treat, the room was beautiful as expected and just added to the wonderful experience. If you are thinking of going to Marrakech, believe the hype and book Riad Noire d'Ivoire, you won't be disappointed! We would like to say a huge thank you to Hassan and his amazing team for creating the perfect holiday for us, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech now, so really look forward to seeing you all soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely (I saw 3 price bands, ranging from cheapest to most expensive) but if you c...

Outside, chaos. Hawkers, cats everywhere, beggars, vendors selling fish on the sidewalk, meat hanging from hooks, men selling goat hooves, mopeds whizzing by an inch from your children, smells, sights, people. But once you ring the bell at the beautiful door of the Riad Noir d'Ivoire, you know you're home. And when you step inside, the chaos recedes and you are in a truly beautiful haven away from the insanity of the outside world. I don't think our family could have made it in Marrakesh without the rejuvenation of Noir d'Ivoire. It's not only the beauty and taste of the riad itself -- it's the feeling that, while there, you are family. Afaf and Hassan made sure every single day that we were taken care of, had what we needed, knew where we were going. Their staff went out of their way to take care of us, greet us with beautiful smiles, do our laundry, even escort us to places we couldn't find on our own. Each morning they asked us what our plans were for the day and offered advice and help, arranging an excellent guide for two of our days there. Initially we booked Noir d'Ivoire because of its gorgeous decor and ambiance, but we got so much more. I will never forget our incredible stay there, and hope to return!
