Very reasonably priced with Authentic Morroccon food st the terrace under the sun. Mohammad, the host is v down to earth and bery very helpful. If you want to experience Morrocco the old style. Stay there, no 5 star hotel would beat the experience.

My daughter and I came to Morocco to celebrate our birthday's and were not disappointed with this gem of a Riad. From the airport transfer to being met and the welcome we received and the choice of breakfast to the very helpful staff, it could not be better. The room is very comfortable and there are plenty of places to...

Although a little tired and worn around the edges, it felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. Ibrahim and Mohammed made us feel as though staying with them in their home. They were helpful and welcoming; they brought in take out for us some nights and brought us Moroccan mint tea each day. Breakfast was basic...

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in August 2016 and had a great time. It was only £200 plus taxes. The staff are really friendly and helpful (they popped out to get us a take away when the weather was too hot to move!) and frequently offer delicious mint tea for free. Small things that could be improved...

The conversation got heated when I refused to tip them what they wanted. Ibrahim, the riad manager, interceded but did not introduce himself...

I returned to this lovely riad after staying there eight years ago with some friends. My two children (now in their 20s) loved the place. The calming peacefulness, together with the attentive staff helped make this long weekend in Marrakech so enjoyable and relaxing for us all. It's location in the medina was ideal and really added to the whole...

We have just got back from 4 days at the Riad Sofia. We were greeted by Ibrahim who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. He gave us maps, directions and tips to help us out, and even went to the supermarket and got us wine and bottled water whenever we asked. The Riad is situated down one of the...
