“Great little Riad.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We stayed 5 nights at the Riad Villa Harmonie. It was our first time in Morocco. First impressions of the approach to the riad were quite scary as it is situated at the bottom of a dark alleyway. After speaking to the owner, Katerine we then decided to venture out and found that the area is totally safe.The riad is very quiet with only 7 rooms in total and is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The rooms are very dark and quiet at night .Katerine is a mine of useful information about places to eat, see,how much to pay for things and for general advice on getting the most from your trip. The staff Miriam, Fatima and Abdul could not have been more accomodating to our needs and were always bright and cheerful. Breakfast was lovely and different everyday.Great private sun terrace at the top. Cant wait to go back next year.Forget 5 star hotels this riad is far better.TIP take a travel kettle, a hairdryer and some warm nightclothes (it is very cold at night at this time of year).

Room Tip: Standard rooms have no heating via the A/C,superior rooms do, both rooms have showers only. Grand ro...

This was our first time in Marrakech and we are so glad we chose to stay at Riad Villa Harmonie. It was near to the centre of the city but a friendly and peaceful place to retreat to at the end of a busy day. Even though we were a bit wary at first at the thought of walking back down the little alley in the dark, in fact we never once felt threatened and were met by smiles and greetings whenever we went out. Do get Katherine to organise a taxi from the airport on arrival though, as you will never find your way on your own.

All the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated, querky and fun, but we did change our standard room for a larger one on the upper floor, and think it well worth paying the extra. However the rooms on the ground floor are nice too, and very good value.

Katherine and her staff could not have been kinder, and we would not hesitate to recommend staying here. Thank you for making my dream of coming to Marrakesh everything I hoped it would be, and more!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floor are fine, though a bit small. Rooms on the upper floor are much larger and...

Stayed here with a friend 5 weeks ago. Arranged a pick up from the airport to the Riad by emailing them, which was just aswell as I am not sure we would have found it! Tucked down some alley ways! But although looks slighlty unsafe it is ok as plenty of people around to help you if you have any hassel! They do not like tourists being hasseled as they value their tourism too much!
The Riad is so pretty, lovely rooftop garden, especially nice around sunset with a chilled glass of wine listening to the mosque calls! Just ask the owners for a drink and they will bring drinks too you and add on to the bill for the end of your stay, nice touch was the complimentary olives or nuts.The owners are lovely and french but speak English which is just aswell as my french is as good as my arabic! Poor! Able to book tours for you here and advise on where is nice to visit, walking distance, directions etc. Rooms were lovely and cleam, very peaceful place to stay, would stay here again. Marrakesh is a crazy magical place, the souks, the atlas mountains (suurounding villages) the main square, the YSL gardens, all worth wandering round and getting yourself lost and emersed in the culture of it all!

We started our stay in Morocco here. The hotel sent a driver to fetch us at the airport-this worked seamlessly. Our rooms off the courtyard were comfortable and a good value. I appreciated that the riad was close to more things I wanted to see but away from the hustle and bustle of the square. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

If you come to this beautiful country and want to feel it's real spirit, you have to stay in this amazing Riad!
It was not my first time in Marrakesh so I can confess that it was the right choice.
It would be a real find for those who travel here for the first time because the riad is located in the Meddina, the historic area of the city, ideally placed for inquisitive tourists) just ten minutes by feet and voila- you are in the main square of Marrakesh Jemma el Fna!
One more thing I cant help describing is the interior. Cosy rooms are decorated in a very sophisticated way and wonderful colours. Everything here is created for chillax!
I would like to say special thanks to lovely Katherine who made our long vacation in Marrakesh so pleasant!
highly recommended!!!

We stayed here while attending a friends wedding. Rooms are charming, and Katherine, the lady who owns the Riad will give you all the recommendations you need. Lovely breakfast and would recommend eating here as well. Great value, enjoyed it, deserves to do well.

this was my first trip to marrakech and it will not be my last, had an amazing break in a lovely peacefull riad, nestled just off the main road only a few minutes walk from the souks of medina the riad was very clean spacious and friendly, the staff cannot do enough for you and the room, bright and very clean, i felt very welcomed from the moment i arrived....which happened to be 1am because of a 3 hour flight delay, but the time did not matter as i was show to my room upstairs, large bath good shower and aircon room....id highly recomend the upstairs suite, on the saturday evening we were treated to a beautiful dinner of cuscus and wine, and the day after katherine booked me a spa and massage which was very refreshing, fatima who looks after the place is a very nice lady also, even tho i cannot speak french or arabic there was no lack of communication, i wish i had stayed for longer, but i shall return later in the year for sure, i would highly recommend this Riad to anyone for its location, staff and cleanliness, there is a family feeling all around, the owners son who speaks very good english was also on hand to advise where to go and what to see, i was lucky enough for him to take me on a tour of the city on his day off, so many thanks to katherine, fatima and vicos for a great stay :)

Room Tip: i stayed in the badi room, with comfortable bed, aircon bath and shower, great room
