“A beautiful oasis in the midst of an amazing city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Wonderful staff. A beautiful riad - perfectly placed close to everything but also very quiet surrounds. Excellent evening meals. The rooftop garden is such a great place to sit and listen the the many sounds of nighttime Marakech. The Tajines prepared by the kitchen staff are beautifully spiced and flavoured. Highly recommend this Riad.

We would like to thank Laurent and Aziz for their fantastic help, warmth, generosity and hospitality during our stay. Laurent had the best stories, anecdotes recommendations of local attractions and restaurants, and Aziz was always on hand to ask about our day, or provide us with free water or delicious mint tea. The Riad itself is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and felt like a wonderful little haven from the busy heat of the city. Large, comfortable, meticulously decorated rooms and a fantastic roof terrace where we spent our evenings. Really made our holiday perfect, and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Marrakech. Too good to keep a secret.

My wife and I stayed at the Raid Aguerzame for 5 nights. We cannot speak highly enough of the Riad itself nor of the hospitality we experienced.

Laurent was a fantastic host, helpful, gracious and kind. The service was excellent and Laurent's team of Aziz and Leila were simply brilliant. Aziz for his considerate and helpful manner to us as guests and Leila for her superb cooking- dinner at the Aguerzame is highly recommended!

Nothing was too much trouble -whether trips out, advice on where to eat in Marrakesh or what to see- Aziz in particular was always ready and willing to help.

Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and the whole place was atmospheric and peaceful.

The Riad is central, and convenient but quiet and restful-an ideal retreat after a hectic day in Marrakesh. If you go to Marrakesh-stay at the Aguerzame- you will fall in love with it-we did!

Laurent, Aziz, Leylah & Aziza - thank you for a great six day stay. We had a great first evening meal and a personal tour, led by Aziz of the approaches to that mad, mad square, the ATM and tips on avoiding the more obvious sneaky ploys of devious characters. The Riad was a much needed oasis and we particularly enjoyed the supply of chilled "big drinks" at the end of each busy day. Great excursions were booked (all with helpful and informative taxi drivers and guides); our washing was done and folded; mint tea was always available at no cost and all our questions and concerns were fully and promptly met and answered. We love Laurent's vast selection of music - particularly his Breton collection. All in all, we couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy all that Marrakech and its surrounds had to offer.

Room Tip: We loved the view from our balcony room of the courtyard and orange trees.

Great spot, great staff, great team, plus great location. A good choice. Would love to get back there. Recommended; relax after a day out at this lovely riad. Worth checking out and what a town to visit. The best place in all Morocco. A great cultural experience. And this is a good place to stay. Ted

What can I say that hasn't already been said about Azuerzame. This is a wonderful Riad with wonderful staff. There was 4 in our group and we were looked after front start to finish, we were told to treat the Riad as if it was our own home.

I booked a mid-week package which included airport transfers and dinner at the Riad, the transfer was seemless and our driver was there to greet us as expected, the meal at the Riad was superb and I would certainly recommend you have a meal at Aguerzame, in fact the meal was so good we booked a meal for our last night. Laurent also organised a trip to the Atlas Mountains which included transfers, guide and lunch at an isolated Riad. make sure you have comfortable walking shoes if you do this excursion.

You cannot fault this Riad location wise, you are just a few minutes away from the Medina\Souks and craziness of Marrakech and yet step into the Riad and you are greeted with calmness.

To Laurent and all the staff - thank you so much for making our stay at Aguerzame such a wonderful time.

Staying at Riad Aguerzame was one of the highlights of my recent trip. Laurent and his team are friendly, welcoming and the Riad felt just like a home from home. The place is gorgeous, well designed and feels like a luxury boutique place that's filled with cool books, magazines, photographs, plants and furniture. I had to force myself to leave and fortunately it's very conveniently located for sightseeing and getting to the souks. Laurent will give you plenty of recommendations for things to do that are off the beaten track and that you won't find in standard guide books. He also has great taste in music which is constantly being played in the background. I can't recommend this place enough and I will definitely stay there again when I head back to Marrakesh.
