This is a beautiful Riad. My husband and I have just returned and we where well looked after by hasna and her husband. I will also mention the lady that cleaned and cooked and the young man who spoke great english and was so kind to my husband and i. This was our first time to Marrakesh and we where made very welcome. We had a beautiful meal at the Riad one evening. Hasna’s husband picked us up from the airport which was great. Thank you all so much for a lovely holiday Marie and sam
We cannot praise highly enough this beautiful Riad, the amazing city of Marrakech, and the fabulous staff who looked after us so very well. Yunis met us at the airport and parked his car just outside the Médina. We then walked to the Riad, which was a couple of minutes away down the winding streets. It was the perfect introduction. We were absolutely amazed at the place and the welcome of Hasna, who couldn’t do enough for us throughout our trip. Our room was lovely, comfortable and had everything we needed. In the morning we had breakfast brought to us by the wonderful Name. Nothing was too much trouble for this lady, including trying to teach me Arabic! Hasna explained they lay out of the Médina and gave us a map. She told us we could get in touch with her at any time. We spent the first part of the day exploring, it was wonderful. The afternoon was spent sunbathing on the roof terrace. We ate at the Riad on our first night and the meal was really good. The next day we booked a trip to some gardens, tombs and a palace. Yunis was our driver once again and was a wonderful guide. We ate at a restaurant just off the square then went back for more sunbathing. We did find a bar that sold alcohol on the square and went there twice. The second time there were belly dancers and musicians. Our last morning was again spent walking through the amazing streets. Yunis took us back to the airport later on...we were really sad to leave Marrakech, the Riad and the lovely people who had taken care of us so well. I would go back to Riad Ailen in a heartbeat 💕…
Stayed here in December for 3 days as part of my mums Christmas present. Big mistake made booking here. We were picked up by private transfer and taken to the entrance of the medina. The driver made a quick phone call and we assumed someone from the Riad was on their way to meet us. After waiting 10 minutes nobody turned up, the driver rang again, it took a further 20 minutes until a woman dressed in robes arrived to show us to the Riad. On entering the riad all seemed great, we were given biscuits and mint tea. We were then shown our room which was acutally nice with a double bed and what I can only describe as an iron settee frame with a mattress, pillows and a duvet on it, and a small bathroom. We were asked if we would like to do any trips, we booked the palaces and gardens and then were taken in a minibus to the souk. I've been to plenty of countries where the locals try and sell you cheap tat but this was on a whole different level. We went into a little cafe for a drink and were constantly hounded by men trying to sell us sim cards, fake watches, fake iphones, fake sunglasses etc. The final straw was 3 men doing acrobatics outside in the square who then came right into the cafe with a hat asking for tips, we left and went back to the riad after that. As it was late in the day we decided to have our evening meal in the riad which was lovely - things went downhill after that with the evening meals. Because we were cold the owners went and got a superser to try and heat us up, after dinner we decided we would go to bed. To our horror we found the pillows, sheets and duvet to be very damp, I reported this to a male member of staff who said he would fix it (he turned the air conditioning on which didn't help in the slightest). We both came home with bad chest infections caused by the dampness. Breakfast was a french stick cut up and some sort of fried bread, jam, half a glass of orange juice and a coffee pot that was filled with enough to do just 2 cups and no more. If it weren't for the lovely Welsh couple also staying in the Riad as well id think we'd both have been on antidepressants. On arriving home I complained to easjet who refunded me £60 and upgraded us on our flight to Egypt 4 weeks ago foc. Im just glad id Egypt booked for 2 weeks last month which was a far better experience than what we had in Marrakech.…
This was a girlie week away, non of us had been to Morocco before. We were not disappointed. As previously reviewed, the Riad is lovely with fabulous staff and not far from the outer wall so not far to walk from your transport. Hasna, Yunis and Name couldn't have done more. Yunis was happy to take us to Carrefore on a wine run when needed and there is no problem having the wine at the Riad. The Riad itself is very safe but be warned once outside.One of our party had a purse stolen but yet again Yunis was on hand to help. Can recommend a trip to The Atlas Mountains and cooking day both done by Yunis and Hasna. Thank you for a wonderful week.
The Riad is a short 20 minute stroll from Jemma el Fnaa. It is an easy interesting walk apart from the scooters which you soon get used to. If you do not fancy the walk back at night try a local tuk tuk - you will not be disappointed. The Riad is clean and comfortable and the staff all very helpful.Rooms are small but clean and beds were made daily and clean towels left. .We booked our trips with Yunis. All 3 trips were excellent and good value. Breakfast was simple with various fresh breads served with jam and honey. Tea, coffee and fresh orange juice was also served. The rooms had a safe and air conditioning which we used to keep warm in the evening. The pool was closed when we were there but there is a lovely sun terrace with loungers on the top floor to enjoy the afternoon sun. The Riad is situated at the edge of the medina so very quiet. If I returned I would not hesitate to stay there again.…
