In general, we really appreciated our stay at this riad and we overall rated it very good. We would have like to rate it as good but no intermediate rating stop were available between average and very good. The details that will require more attention are the bathrooms. The quality of the amenities is significantly lower than the competition, plumbing... More

Rock_Critic, Owner at Riad Assakina, responded to this review

We have absolutely no record or recollection of any clients from Bangkok ever having stayed with us. Nevertheless, on the assumption that the review might somehow be genuine, it is certainly worth responding to. Our plumbing is new, our beds are the finest (super-king size, imported from the UK) and our bed linen is 100% pure Egyptian cotton. We take... More

We travelled to Marrakech October 2010 for our honeymoon, Michele (Riad owner) arranged for us to be collected from the Airport to be taken to the Riad, our driver was ready and waiting for our arrival.

After weeks and weeks of extensive research in search of the perfect riad we were thrilled when we finally set foot inside this beautiful Riad. From the smooth transfer from the airport in a pre-arranged taxi to our departure when the owners Grant and Michelle personally said their goodbyes, this was an amazing 4 night break which was, in the...

We stayed for 5 nights in November and it was a great location for exploring Marrakesh. Don't be put off by arriving at the end of an alleyway, once you reach this Riad it is a really lovely location. The staff are really helpful and pleasant. One our first night Michelle helped us find somewhere to eat and there is... More

We stayed here in early December, the Riad is truly beautiful and would have no hesitation in recommending. It is located in the Medina but takes around 15 minutes to walk to the djemma el-fna square. All the staff provided a great service, all maps and any information was readily available. Breakfast was also very good. Marrakech is a very... More

Traveling solo can be a little daunting sometimes. After researching Marrakech riads, I decided to stay at Riad Assakina and was very glad I chose this hotel. As a solo female, I was a little nervous about visiting Marrakech but the owners of this hotel, Michele and Grant, as well as their staff, made me feel right at home. With... More
