The Riad is an absolutely stunning oasis, so tucked away that it just felt like heaven to retreat to after a day romping the Souks! The hospitality was remarkable and attentive, from breakfast, throughout the day with tea and cake, until the bed was turned down at night- it was the best place we've ever stayed at! Amazing advice and... More

This is a lovely Riad, decorated with real taste, not just the usual Marrakech tat. The owner is the soul of helpfulness. Their store is filled with tasteful (tho pricey), well-chosen items. Food quite wonderful. Drinks a balm at the end of the day. It's a good location, with easy walks to most of the sights. The current repairs in... More

Michele, Grant and the Riad Assakina team are, quite simply, the finest Marrakech has to offer; a warm welcome, gracious service, sumptuously-appointed surroundings, wonderful food and unrivalled local knowledge. You won't want to leave - I certainly didn't. Whether travelling on your own (as I was, on this occasion) or with somebody else, Riad Assakina is the perfect destination, whatever... More

Deep in the Jewish quarter of the Medina lies an oasis of calm, as we arrived, we were led down a small side street towards an ornate gated front door. Tired and grumpy from travelling, we were greeted with big smiles and a warming smell of incense. Instant calm! Some homemade mint tea later (extra sugar) and we felt refreshed... More

Excellent break. 5th visit and never disappoints. Staff welcoming and Michele continues to look after you well. Excellent restaurants and tips for visits. Love Marrakech with all the hustle and bustle. A different holiday to normal hotel and big city which is what makes it magical, and a welcoming staff and good food at the end of the day means...

There are so many riads to choose from in Marrakech but I am so so SO glad we stayed at Riad Assakina.

It felt like I was staying in the very glamorous home of good friends! Michelle and Grant are the perfect hosts! They recommended the best restaurants, but our most romantic dinner was at their Riad. My husband was coming from running the Marathon des Sables and this was the absolute best place for him to rest and recuperate. We are... More
