This small hotel has only six rooms, all conveniently located around an inside square. Though in the middle of the old town of Marrakech, you feel far away from the hustle and bustle once inside. Every room is largely decorated in Moroccon style. Grant and Michele are the hosts of this boutique style hotel and they have done absolutely everything... More

Really. I could go on about how wonderful the owners and staff are. I could go on about how this was the best meal we ate. I could go on about how great the pool feels after a hot day. But I won't, because it has been said over, and over, and over again in these reviews. The one question... More

Modern contemporary Moroccan riad next to Bahia Palace. We enjoyed our two day stay. The small touches made a big difference: - Environment: Riad Assakina was bought and renovated by an English couple, Grant and Michele. It is located in an obscure alleyway guarded by iron gate, so little hard to find. But once inside - beauty and tranquility. Interior... More

Michelle and Grant are the most helpful, gracious hosts we experience in the five weeks in Morocco! Highly recommend staying here. Great location and their lodging is one of the most elegantly and well appointed...and comfortable! Loved it!

We were very pleasantly surprised at the peacefulness and finely decorated rooms at Riad Assakina. The staff spoke English well and was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. It is located in a convenient place right next to the Bahia Palace in the Jewish Quarter, about a 20 minute walk to the Djemaa al F'naa. The owners are collectors... More

Without doubt, one of the best places we have stayed. Michele and Grant make you feel right at home at their impeccably styled Riad. We arrived on their doorstep with no plans and little time and within a few short hours, Michele and Grant had helped plan our stay in Morocco. We were put in touch with Nour Edine (spelling)...

We felt very much at home in beautiful Riad Assakina and enyoyed the quiet, the wonderful hospitality and the warm welcome by Michele and Grant. From the moment of booking all the staff, especially Naoual and Hisham, made our stay perfect with that extra smile and many warm words. The Riad itself is the most gorgeous place, beautifully decorated and... More

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
