This old hotel, actually a riad, is in one of the many alleyways in the heart of the Medina. Our room was smaller than we anticipated - it had a double bed and 2 twin beds, leaving little room for luggage, or anything else - it was not well-lit, and there was a slight sewer smell from the bathroom. This... More

Stayed here three years ago and it was just as lovely second time around. Staff were very helpful in advance, organising rooms and transfers etc. The riad is in a great location and staff are brilliant, always recommending restaurants, spas ect. Brilliant value for money, would not hesitate to recommend

A beautiful place with great hosts. Staying here for night, wasnt enough but our stay was made so relaxing and comfortable. Its set in the heart of Marrakesh, about 5 mins walk from Jama al fana, this little gem just sits inside the old part and once you have entered the doors you are greeted with a beaiutiful scenic and...

Great Riad in Marrakech old city center! Not so hard to find. Nice room, cleaned everyday. Very relaxing! The young guy who lead the Riad is very friendly and kind. He explained us everything we needed to know and offered us a tea and suggested with a map some things to do. Very very good!!!

We arrived around 9pm in front of the Riad. It is located in a small alley which was not that difficult to locate as it had a sign overhead the alley entrance. Its a quaint old house refurbished and converted into a beautiful mini hotel with a nice little patio. We picked the Bahia Suite which was fit for a... More

This Riad was perfectly located, under 5 mins walk from the main square yet quiet enough for a goodnight sleep. Our family room (2 adults and 3 children ages 9, 6 and 3 yrs) was perfect size. Comfortable beds, clean bathroom, pleanty of hot water and a good breakfast (BUT me and my hubby both found a hair in the... More

Despite arriving in the middle of the night having been scammed by our taxi driver (not the fault of the riad!) the welcome that we received could not have been better and reassured us more. In a amazing central location down a safe shopping street, it was less than 5 minutes walk to the main square, and was a oasis... More

Parking close to the hotel seems impossible, so I hope you travel light. The riad is very exotic, very traditional. We didn't eat there, except for breakfast - a nice breakfast. Rooms are comfortable, there is no windows to the outside like in most riads. There was a bad smell from the bathroom in all our rooms. Service was good.

Far from the madding crowd, an oasis of calm. Lovely and quaint, Anwar was an excellent host, breakfast was a Moroccan delight. The room was clean and spacious for 4 people, beds just a little hard but after a day walking around Marrakech it didn't matter, slept like a log.

Riad l'Arabesque is a nice little riad located in the medina, a few minutes from the Jemaa el-Fna. While it was at fist a bit hard to find, it is a pleasant and quaint haven from the bustling old city. Rooms were clean, breakfast was good and generous, service was also pretty good (the staff arranged a private car for... More
