“Such a lovely place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at Riad Arabe for a week over New Year. The Riad was the best thing with the whole trip togheter with the company. Marrakesh is steaming, especially over NY, and that´s fun but also a bit exhausting, It was so lovely to get back to the beatiful and quiet Riad, enjoy the sun or if you prefere shades up on the rooftop or by the pool.

Riad Arabe is a great place to hang out with friends at, or just spend relaxing days with books or partner or yourself. The breakfast is served in the morningsun. You can decide yourself if you want lunch and dinner at the Riad or if you want to try some of the great and very resonable priced restaurants in the area.

Rashida, who take care of the household is wonderful, cooks great food and is trying to take care of everybody the very best she can. One wish to bring her home :)

Can´t wait to go back!

“Amazing Riad, trendy little palace w great location!”

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful little riad and were amazed by the house itself, the interiors and Marrakech itself. The house is a traditional riad with excellent location in the middle of the medina. Its spacious and beautifully decorated, Moroccan style with a trendy twist. The cook Rachida was very helpful and prepared fantastic meals. We loved to relax on the roof terrace overlooking the city and Atlas mountains as well as by the beautiful pool. We will be back.

“Top location in the Red City with abundance of charm and morrockan style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

Great place. We rented it for an extended weekend and we were very well taken care of. One night we had a traditional morrocan tangine prepared as dinner in the Riad. The owners have full knowledge of places to go for dinner, drinks, hamams or clubbing as well as the must-see sites. Our morrocan stay was truly a magical one much due to our own little palace. Still dream of sundowners on the roof terrace overlooking the buzzling city roofscape. We'll be back!

“Excellent situated in the middle of the souks -beautiful roof terrace with view over Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Situated right in the middle of the souks this Riad has nicely decorated rooms as well as common areas and pool.The service provided by Rachida (serving breakfast and lunch/dinner upon request) as well as the local food was very good!
Enjoy the roof terrace with specacular view of the Atlas Mountain as well as the skyline of Marrakech! If it is too hot-use the nice tent on the roof terrace as well as enjoying a drink at night with just the dark sky and stars above you!

“Marrakech is magical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was the second time to Marrakech and this visit was just as good as the first.
Riad Arabe has a great location in the Medina. Everything is just outside the door. Fantastic and always smiling Rashida will make your stay pleasant and comfortable. She cook great Morrocan food that you can enjoy by the pool in the garden or at terrace on the roof the riad. Plenty of different spaces in the riad where you can relax and hang out with friends and family.
Let yourself get lost in the alleys and enjoy all that happens around you. Djeema el Fna the big square is amazing with all that is going on there. Shopping in the Medina is great, don't forget to bargain. In the evening visit one of Marrakechs many fantastic restaurants with great cuisine. And don't forget to ask Rashida take you to a tradtional hamam.
Marrakech and Riad Arabge is magical! I'll for sure will be back - soon!

“Excellent riad in the middle of the medina!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A fantastic riad located in the heart of the shopping district in Marrakech. The rooms are very nicely decorated with lots of arabic elements. The food was delicious and dinner could be served by the pool or on the terrace overlooking the sparkling city. I would recommend this place to everone.
