“Paradise in the middle of Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My boyfriend, friend and I spent 1 nights at Riad Aguerzame after spending a week touring Morocco with a larger group. It was the perfect way to decompress and relax. We spent the day lounging in the courtyard, drinking mint tea and fanning ourselves in the heat. The rooms are great, the Riad is super quiet and the staff was very accommodating, especially to help my friend when she got sick. It was truly a quiet paradise, and I would highly recommend!

Can't speak highly enough of this place. Nothing was too much trouble for Aziz or Laurent. Beautiful rooms and the worlds most comfortable bed. Perfect retreat from the madness of Marrakech. Had transfers and a welcome dinner as part of out package. Sardine tagine which was one of the best meals we ate whilst in Marrakech. Thank you all the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

We had a great 2 nights at this lovely Riad. It is close to the main square and the souk and easy to get to the Palaces and the Saadian tombs. Laurent was very welcoming with added finesse like walking us into the centre of town so that we could be confident of the route. The food was quite superb - in fact we ate there both nights because the food was so good on the first night ( and the free wine was very drinkable!). Breakfast was also excellent with tasty variations on rolls/pancakes/croissants/cinnamon bread and yummy strawberries, freshly squeezed orange juice and yoghurt. The team here works hard to maintain its deserved position as a top small Riad in Marrakesh.

We stayed at Aguerzame for 3 days and just loved it! Wonderful breakfast with homemade pancakes, fresh orange juice and croissants, always good help from the host Laurent and beautyful rooms. One of the best places I've ever stayed at.

My friend and I stayed in a 2nd floor room and really enjoyed the tranquility of this riad. This was the first riad we stayed in when we got to Marrakech and its proximity to Djemma el Fna as well as the palaces was helpful to see lots in a short time. Best of all was Aziz who took time to answer any of all of our questions and made sure we didn't get lost and always had somewhere to eat and something to do. Laurent was very kind, but since we saw Aziz more, I have to say he was a real gem.

The only negative I might say is getting to the riad the first time. We took the train in from Marrakech and although we were offered a ride from the station by Laurent, we weren't sure about our schedule and thought maybe we could do better than paying 15 euros as was offered. Unsurprisingly, we were given exorbitant prices by the taxi drivers at the station and worst of all, when they dropped us off at the closest point in the medina, we got suckered into being led to the riad by a entrepreneurial teenager. When we gave him a tip, he argued with us and demanded more money. Between him and the taxi ride, we probably spent about the equivalent in 15euros and the teenager especially was incredibly unpleasant to deal with. It would be nice if the riad could provide some directions since it's really not that hard to find once you're dropped off.

Overall though, wonderful place to stay, fun people to meet, and great staff to learn from.

My friend and I stayed here in the middle of a heat wave yet the hotel still seemed very comfortable. The first thing you notice is the short door that you crouch through to go in - a small entrance to a spacious courtyard (with orange tree!), beautiful decor, and gorgeous rooms. Laurent and Aziz were incredibly hospitable and welcoming, going out of their way to give us helpful recommendations and maps, and tips for navigating the Marrakech medina. Very nice stay!

My wife and I enjoyed a very happy stay at the Riad Aguerzame. Laurent and his team make you feel very welcome. The food - breakfast and evening meals - were excellent as too the Riad itself (rooms, courtyard, location in the Medina). Laurent has a fantastic insider's knowledge of Marrakesh and will happily advise on restaurants, shops, prices-to-pay, etc that - as a short stay tourist - you would otherwise be simply unaware of. Virtually no request seems too much - he even escorted us to a "secret tailor store" on the way to the airport so my wife could get a last minute fitting for a leather jacket. Oh, and if you do have an evening meal in the Riad, don't forget to ask Laurent to chanter le blues!
