“The epitome of authenticity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The moment I stepped into Riad Aguerzame, I was overcome with a peaceful vibe of good energy contained within the home. It was a nice surprise considering the riad is within the maze of the busy Medina. The high level of hospitality was set from the get go. From the helpful emails preparing for the trip, to meeting a driver upon our arrival at the Marrakech train station, to the fresh breakfast every morning, to getting us acquainted with our surroundings when venturing away from the riad, to helping us with exceptional tour activities (ie. hikes along the Atlas mountains), etc. For every need we encountered, the staff at Riad Aguerzame helped us every step of the way.

My party and I enjoyed everything about the place - the beautiful decor, the absolute cleanliness of the rooms, the thoughtfulness put into anticipating the needs of their guests, but most of all the team working there that made it all possible and ensured the riad was more our home away from home.

Also, it wasn't until we tried the dinner prepared at Riad Aguerzame did we fully appreciate Moroccan cuisine. It was so delicious, that we wished we had dinner there every night. I could rave on about every aspect of our stay, but I will just say how grateful we are to have come across this sanctuary of Moroccan heaven. I highly recommend that anyone visiting Marrakech stay at this place.

A very welcoming owner and staff with a simple message, enjoy your stay, but with a great deal of advice on who what and where! Lovely room and bathroom with a/c all in a well run establishment and so convenient for the city attractions.They have a brilliant chef who will do a great dinner, wine included. The breakfast could have varied a bit more but the overall stay was fabulous and v hot for late Sept,40 degrees!! Loved it. Thanks to Laurent and all the staff.

Room Tip: Choose a rom on the first floor as downstairs could be noisy at breakfast!

My wife and I stayed at Riad Aguerzame for 4 nights in September. Laurent (the owner) arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and taken right to the door, where an excellent Moroccan dinner cooked by Leila was waiting, The courtyard dining / relaxing area proved to be an oasis of peace in bustling Marrakech, and Aziz would provide free mint tea (or beer - not free of course) whenever we went back to the riad for respite.
Every trouble was taken to show us where to go and what to see, and a map was provided showing us the way back to the riad. Also Aziz walked with us to the main square (via the currency excahge) to make sure we could not get lost.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay !

Room Tip: We had a first-floor room with windows out to the courtyard. These are preferable to the studio roo...

Beautifully decorated, well located, comfortable, good value and really friendly. I would strongly recommend a stay at Laurent's Riad. He is the perfect host to make you feel at home and give some great advice about Marrakech and Morocco.

We had the most amazing time staying at Riad Ageurzame!We spent it celebrating my husbands 50th with a group of friends.It was perfect from the beginning to end. The Riad was beautiful,tranquil and relaxing.Our bedroom on the 1st floor was lovely, infact all the bedrooms on the 1st floor were.However the most important thing that made it perfect was Laurent and his team. Nothing was too much trouble. The meals were wonderful. I looked forward to the breakfast every morning, especially the homemade yoghurt and freshly squeezes orange juice! We had a lovely meal the first evening and they had made a delicious chocolate birthday cake for my husband.I wanted it to be a perfect trip for my husbands birthday but it was better than I could have ever of wished for.
Thank you so much Laurent, Aziz, Laziza,and Laila ,
We will return again soon !

I spent few days in Marrakesh and I decided to stay at Riad Aguerzame, mainly because of the opinions I found in Trip Advisor. I was not dissapointed in the least! I had a great room, decorated in Marroqui style. Laurent, the host, was super friendly and helpful (as you will read in all the others reviews), and the cost of the room was very reasonable.
You cant go wrong by staying at this Riad.
