It was our third riad to stay at here in marrakech. It was really great place, the moroccan food is the best of the best you can have in the city. The staff are just amazing and always smiling. Great breakfast anytime u would have it morning or afternoon. Room are super clean and great location so u can visit some of historic buildings around there, very close to jammaa lafna Square and kotoubia too. They have great rooftop view and pool too. I really recommend the place for those who looking for great moroccan food, tranquility and great location. I would like to thank all the sta3ff there for the amazing hospitality and looking forward to back again. Regards Karim & Hannah

This was our third riad in Morocco...and whilst Ok, it was not great for the dollars spent. Same price per night as the amazing riad we stayed in in Essaouira...that had the wow factor, Awa, sadly didn’t. No instructions sent re parking arrangements (which you have to pay extra for) and no GPS coordinates made finding the place (we were self driving) very challenging. The lady who met us spoke no English but provided us with the usual mint tea....we weren’t asked if we wanted sugar or not and it arrived VERY sweet...so ask for ‘sans sucre’ unless you have a very sweet tooth! Furniture downstairs all looked a little tired (better when table clothes on tables). I was left ther when my husband went to relocate the car and was not shown to our room until I went and asked. The room we had on first floor was large, nice lounge area, bed comfortable but on the firm side, air con good. Clean, good towels and toiletries. Noisy as small windows (single glazing) to outside passage and a man shouting until 11ish one night, right outside the window. Breakfasts adequate, roof terrace with small pool a nice place to relax. Wifi good at some times of the day and slow at others. Location convenient for walking to souks, square etc. can’t compare to other riads in Marrakech, and had we paid in the region of nz$180, this would have rated higher, but at $220 a night, not good value.

We booked here due to TA reviews, location & parking. The location was great, easy to walk to just about anything you wanted or taxis were available right outside. Initially not an easy place to find when using Google maps... we were driving. then, the parking is 2-3 minute walk up the road, whereas you expect it easy to find. Once you drive into the Kasbah it’s a 1 way trip... it makes sense once you have been there, but beware. The Riad: for the price it wasn’t as good as the one we had in Essaouira for the same price, in that I mean the quality of the room, furnishings, customer service & breakfast. I’d give 7/8 out of 10 here for those attributes. A let down was the reception as the lady @ the time we arrived spoke virtually no English. Others did, so it was better when their shift started. We had a 3 course meal the 1st night... chicken Tagline loaded with olives... I hate olives!!!! Though the dinner was nice. Wifi was poor, usually better in the morning. Good stay, but they could improve on a few aspects.

Booked to stay at Riad Awa for my birthday. After a long and wet journey we arrived only to be told that they had overbooked and despite having my email decided to wait until we arrived to let us know. No info as to where they had booked and reluctantly showed us pictures after about 45mins. Spoke to manager/owner on the phone - very unhelpful as were the rest of staff - not a great experience. From what I saw - the Riad was tired looking and not like the pictures also an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke. Best thing about this experience was moving as we ended up staying at Dar Charkia which is amazing.

The Riad was perfectly placed for exploring Marrakech. Located right at the Medina walls, it meant that the taxi could stop right outside rather then dropping you off in the main square and then having someone transfer your bags through the winding streets. It was still only a 10 minute walk from the main square and literally round the corner from the Saadian Tombs. The streets surrounding the Riad had a number of nice shops and places to eat without being overcrowded like some other parts of Marrakech. Inside the Riad the staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. They have a hammam and can organise massages or other treatments for you. Breakfast is simple but tasty start to the day which was served for us on the rooftop terrace. There is a small swimming pool and sun loungers on a two height rooftop. The rooms are quite small but comfortable. A very nice stay.

A group of 6 of us stayed here last year - one of the travellers was pregnant at the time and they treated us brilliantly. Mohammed was an incredible host - really friendly and helpful at all times. This place made my stay in morocco a lot more enjoyable and I will definately stay there again!! The photos do not do it justice. Thank you for such an amazing stay.

My wife, myself and a couple of friends stayed at the Raid Awa between 6th & 8th April this year. Wonderful service, great location - walking distance to most places you want to get to. Rooms clean and comfortable - a really lovely setting. We would definitely go back should we find ourselves in Marrakesh again.

We had a really nice stay at Riad Awa last week. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is nice. Breakfast was also good. Everything is in close walking distance, so you don't have to take a taxi very often (expect at night we prefered a taxi). I would come back to Riad Awa!

A beautiful stylish Riad blending old with new, perfectly situated at the edge of the medina, next to the Kings Palace and Saadian Tombs. The staff are warm and lovely: Bouchra and Mohommad will help you organise or find anything you need. We have the Riad mainly to ourselves and were able to relax on the rooftop terrace and swim in the small pool. They also have a taxi driver, who again is lovely, and can take you out to the Atlas Mountains, to find a camel or a carpet. We had the Grand Suite and it was perfect. The kids loved it. A brill place to stay.

This is a peaceful and beautiful Riad made special by the people who own and care for those who stay. Big rooms, rooftop views, on the edge of the Kasbah. Meals cooked in house or many options including Cafe Kasbah just around the corner and the Clock 5 minutes walk into the Kasbah.
