This Riad is excellent. Tucked away down a little alleyways minutes from all the action of the Jamaal El Fnaa but very quiet. It is Quaint and we'll serviced. Beautiful breakfasts on the rooftop every morning. The staff are helpful and friendly. Moroccan mint tea whenever you want. Like most of the hotels in Marrakech , the only downfall is... More

Wonderful location, great hosts and fantastic staff. Choose the Green Room, it's lovely and very comfortable. Thank you to our owners/hosts and to Aziz and Yassine -- walking with us and carrying our suitcases to and from the Riad was very much appreciated . Upon your recommendations we really enjoyed dinner at a nearby restaurant (whose name escapes me) and,... More

I stayed here for two nights in December 2015 and it was one of the best places I stayed in Morocco. The riad is very clean and nicely-designed, but the highlight was the breakfast! Best in Morocco! The showers also had the hottest water I had in the 6 difference places I stayed at throughout my trip...... The staff are... More

While this wasn't the most palatial Riad in Morocco, it was the one we liked most as we really felt like we were staying with friends. The location is just far enough from the madness of the Night Market but close enough to easily walk to it, and a myriad of good restaurants. My Mother and I shared a room... More

From start to finish, I had a fantastic stay at Riad La Cigale. Jalil, Hassan, and Aicha are the consummate hosts. They do everything in their power to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Jalil was great at arranging tours and providing insider information on where to visit. Hassan and Aicha prepared excellent breakfasts and always had a cup... More

I recently spent a few days in Marrakech and can't stress enough how good the decision of staying in this riad was. Situated just a couple of hundreds metres from Place Jamaa El Fna, it allows you to fully experience life in the heart of the Medina but in a very quite environment. The rooms are nicely furnished, clean and... More

Stupidly we didn’t take up the guys offer of meeting us at the square, but by some miracle we did find our way to the Riad. The street was so narrow, the door was only about 4ft high but once inside it was amazing. The place was so tranquil, everything was hand crafted and beautiful. We were greeted with mint... More

We stayed here for only one night on a very quick trip to Morocco. We arrived at night and were met by the charming manager at the edge of the Medina. He guided us to the Riad through the chaos and bustle of the Souk. It was a total surprise to go through a tiny doorway and leave all this... More
