This riad was a haven in a busy area of Marrakech. The staff were superb and provided for our every need. I must be honest and say I didn't like Marrakech. I found it a bit full on.My wife had surgery just prior to the holiday and it was probably not what we needed at this time. The riad however provided us with a quiet retreat . The food was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. Nothing was to much trouble to the staff who were happy to help with any problems.They also showed us were to change money and get the best rate and advised about where to eat. Be warned however this is in the centre of the median and some things you may see are not nice.the animals used for entertainment are not treated well and many people in this area see tourists as a cash crop.

The Riad is about a three minute walk from the north east corner of Jemaa El Fna. It is a bit like first star on the right and keep on till morning. You wind around several turns enter through and old door and emerge into a white washed, balconied quadrangle. It is an oasis from the chaos of the Souk. The walls are punctuated with solid black doors with their ornate silver locking bolts. As far as I could tell there were no exterior windows. The only windows looked out from the rooms onto the courtyard with its wall fountain and pebble pool.

Our room was also black and white with a splash of red in an alcove. It's open style was a bit of a shock at first, but we quickly adjusted. There is an intimate, homely feel about the whole place.

Adil welcomed us and nothing was too much trouble for him. With his colleague Mustafa we were well looked after. The chef did an excellent job to providing excellent local quinine at any time of the day. Adil told us this was our house. I can say the service has never been so good in my house.

We have had a really enjoyable time able to step out into the mayhem and madness of Marrakech and then back into the calm of this excellent Riad.

My partner and I stayed in this Riad for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although getting there is a little tricky (it is located right in the heart of the medina, only accessible by foot), once you arrive the winding way there it is totally worth it. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean, and the terrace is great to relax on after a busy day in the city. The breakfast was amazing, much better than we expected. You are given plenty to eat and it is all very tasty! But what really makes this Riad is the service... the two gentlemen who looked after us really went out if their way to ensure we had the best possible stay, happily catering for our late arrival / early departure. I would recommend this Riad to anybody. I was so impressed that I am looking to send my mother over for a stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights to experience the true culture of Marrakech, before going on to a resort at the Palmeraie; for our two young children. Had it not been for the kids, we would have been delighted to stay here longer.
From arrival to leaving, we had a memorable stay here.
We were picked up from airport in a comfortable 4x4. Given that most cars in Marrakech are rusty old mercs, this was somewhat a luxury. We were then dropped off at the square and met by a very nice old man who towed our baggage through the swarming night time crowds and spindly souk alleyways. On arrival we were warmly received by the glasses-wearing, ever so kind and hospitable member of staff. Couldn't help noticing the place was a bit dead. But for a small Riad, this was nothing to complain about really. And strengthened the ambience and experience of being a guest in someone's home and being looked after attentively and personally. Our room was tastefully decorated, modern with traditional features. The four-poster bed, ottoman bed box, hand carved bathroom door, high ceilings, his n hers basins in the bathroom and luxury toiletries were real plus points. The two male staff who manned the reception were both very amiable, polite, and sincere. They offered to take care of our every need and this included map of local attractions, the loan of a pushchair (which proved invaluable as we only brought one and in hindsight it was probably essential to have both 1 and 4 yr old in pushchairs, given the chaotic traffic of people, buzzing scooters, veg carts, donkeys, gaping gutters and cobbled paths.), warm milk, specially tailored kids meals, etc. The room was clean and bed was comfy. Each room is decorated differently, albeit tastefully. The lobby/courtyard is very small but adequate for the no. Of guests and rooms. The rooftop terrace is small, pretty and has a jacuzzi/hot tub (which we opted to avoid due to concern surrounding the hygiene of jacuzzis in general). Food is prepared as per your requirements and is served in a classic fine dining style, The location of this Riad was fab. Just 3mins to min square and such an interesting and intriguing walk down. Overall the Riad doesn't offer everything in terms of amenities/facilities, but the personal service and warm hospitality amid this tranquil retreat juxtaposed in the centre of a bustling hotspot, was a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Only biggest room has door to adjoining bathrom

Riad Villa Wengé was one of the best places I have visited. We were made to feel completely welcome and the staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The staff were all very friendly down to the cleaners, the chef and we have kept in touch with staff to send pictures of our stay. The staff gave us lots of tips for whilst we were out and about in Marrakech. Communication before we arrived was regular so that when we arrived all our requests were in place (and we had a lot). As we were a group of girls the night duty staff went out of his way to meet us every night to walk us back to the Riad without needing to. The food was fantastic and authentic, the place was immaculate at all times. The manager even went to a recommended restaurant to bring us back menus and asked the restaurant to personally make us food that wasn't on the menu. Staff also made sure that we were well treated by the locals, shops and souks. I would highly recommend Villa Wengé to all groups and ages. We were blown away by the 24 hour, incredible service and will definitely be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful and very classy design.
