We had a great week at Riad Villa Harmonie. Katherine and the staff were So friendly and helpful. a big thank you to all that made our stay so pleasant.

Close enough to the centre " Jemaa El Fna" 5-10 mins walk, but far enough away feel relaxed back in the calm of the Riad. Breakfast on the Terrace watching the Storks was lovely, as was a welcome beer in the late afternoon.
The Riad is clean and tidy with lovely period décor, , a very cool and calm place to relax after the madness of the town.

The Entance to the Riad is down a narrow and not pretty lane that some would initially find intimidating, (most Riads are the same) but like the rest of Marrakesh is totally safe.
After seeing the entrances to other Riads, we were glad ours was away from the hussle and by comparison, easy to get to from the Road.

Top tips:
Get Katherine to arrange airport transfer, it may be 20 euro's but you simply wouldn't find the place on your own and local taxi's would probably rip you off anyway.

Room Tip: We stayed in a ground floor room which wasn't air conditioned, but this wasn't an issue, as...

We stayed here for three nights. Before we arrived the hotel was very helpful and organised a taxi to meet us at Marrakech airport and the taxi driver took us to the hotel door. General overview is that the staff cannot do enough for you as in helping you with directions or advising where to go to book trips. Its a good location for sights and very clean Riad. You also can relax on the terraces. The breakfast we received was excellent, my wife loved the freshly cooked bread with fresh fruit. It feels like you have a Moroccan experience here and Katherine and her staff are always there to help you. Thanks for making us have good memories of Marrakech.

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!
