Our first trip to Marrakech. On our arrival the Hotel transfer was there to meet us and chatted all the way. Definitely recommend the Riad's transfer as not the easiest place to find. We were greeted by Patrice and shown to our quirky room in the original Riad. It was so different, very clean and well laid out. The map... More

A wonderful stay at the beautiful Riad Ambre et Epices. I travelled with two other female friends, I booked a double room and it was fine for me, but might have been cramped for a couple. My companions shared a suite and I would recommend this for a stay of more than a few nights. Having said this, my room... More

This was our first trip to Marrakech so we had no expectations but high hopes for something different from our everyday experience in the UK. The Riad Ambre et Epices did not disappoint. It's situated well off the beaten path yet close to the souks and Place Jemaa el Fna. Patrice's map is excellent. Don't bother purchasing one because the... More

From initial emails, arranging taxi pick up from the airport, welcome and meals - the service here was excellent. Patrice and the guys really look after you. We had a room in the new part of the Riad and enjoyed the stylish new rooms with a huge stone bath behind the large bed in the bedroom as well as a... More

We stayed here in March 2014 for four nights in the annexe. Beautiful riad, very evocative, traditional interior, clean and well looked after . impeccable service from Patricea and Ibrahim, nothing was too much trouble. Both very smiley, helpful and attentive. The breakfasts are delicious and different every day, it is served on the terrace if warm enough. The riad... More

The small room was on the ground floor "next door" it comprised of a bed and mirror that leant against the wall and that was it. No TV, no wardrobe or draws so don't bother unpacking just leave everything in the suitcase. The bathroom had a large open shower and no bath so more a shower room with a sink.... More

We are very disappointed about this message. But it's true that we can't please to everybody. When we read your comment (TV on the room, little street, view of medina, little swimming pool...) we think that you would have prefer an hotel in the modern district of marrakech, not a traditional guest house on the medina. There is some precisions... More

Very high quality Riad - rooms were furnished to a top quality. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - couldn't have asked for better Breakfast was perfect 10-15 min walk to the square, close enough to walk, but also far enough away for it to be a quiet place to relax after a day's exploring Just one thing to note...

Returned last night from a trip to Marrakech, I visited with a friend and we were very lucky to have found Riad Ambre et Epices. The riad is a 20 minute slow walk from the souks and although seems very complicated to get to,, once shown (ask Patrice for a map) it is actually quite simple, you will need help... More
