Travelers' Choice
Riad Joya is a luxury intimate retreat nestled in the very heart of the Medina of Marrakech in the historical and protected area of the Mouassine, just few steps from the Djemaa el Fna square, the main monuments, the souk and the most exciting attractions of the “red city”.A gem of timeless beauty and sophisticated atmosphere, where discrete luxury fuses with eclectic style.The property reflects the traditional architecture of the riads, built around a small courtyard which is an oasis of tranquility, and features two stylish salons and a panoramic roof terrace.The roof top is the best place to savor a sumptuous breakfast, unwind during the aperitif ritual or surprise the one you love with a romantic dinner under the stars.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and I cannot recommend the place enough. Everything from being picked up at the airport to the time we left was brilliant. I've stayed in all kinds of hotels from luxury chains to boutique hotels and I cannot say I've found more attentive service anywhere before. We were greeted by Noor & team and were offered some delicious Moroccan tea with biscuits when we arrived. The Riad is gorgeous & I personally loved the courtyard & the sunny terrace. It's perfectly located within walking distance of all of the Medina's must see places and with loads of eating options close-by. The way to the Riad is a typical Medina meandering route and we did get lost the first time but Noor luckily spotted us going the wrong way :D Our room was spacious & comfy. Very clean with lot's of space to store our luggage out of the way. I LOVED the bathroom decor. The housekeeping is impeccable. My husband and I are vegetarians and had Moroccoan breads, fruit, beverages & a variety of cheese & pastries for breakfast. They do do eggs but we don't eat them & did not find the breakfast to be lacking in anyway whatsoever. Everything was fresh and delicious. I like how they leave you alone to enjoy your meals. What made me fall in love with the place was the attentiveness & hospitality of the folks running it. From arranging transport for us to day trips, food recommendations, guides, where to shop and where to exchange money; Noor went above & beyond with helping us out. I will 10/10 recommend the place to everybody. It's worth every penny & more. I stayed in Sofitel right after my stay here & all I can say is a chain is a chain & you won't find the attentiveness there :)

This is our third day in this remarkable hotel, located in the center of the Mediná. The introduction, written by the hotel is really accurate. The food is wonderful. The attention to your enjoyment is impeccable. "Nor" was the most wonderful of all hosts as well. When he says "This is your home" believe him. This is THE place to stay in Marrakesh.

This Riad is very modern and difference from other more traditional. However the accommodation was stylish, sleek and super comfortable. Amazing breakfast. Shower was fantastic and the bed super comfortable unlike most of the hard beds in Morroco. Noor and his staff are super helpful, kind and took amazing care of us. We loved it and would definitely recommend and love to return

Beautiful riad in the old Medina, so calm and quite. The manager Noordin is just the best host along with the staff, and we felt very much take care of. Great service from the airport pick up to the wonderful food.

What a lovely stay! The service was lovely, no ask was too small. A great location in the medina once you find your feet and great food! Breakfast was nice every morning with fruit pastries yoghurt and condiments. Room servicing was a couple of times daily. Roof terrace was lovely for sunbathing. Overall, an extremely pleasant stay for a nice holiday and would highly recommend.

Nestled in the vibrant center of Medina, this Riad stands as a tranquil sanctuary, showcasing breathtaking architecture and seven generously proportioned suites, each complemented by spacious bathrooms. Throughout our delightful two-night stay, we received exceptional care from the attentive manager, "Noor," who ensured our experience was nothing less than extraordinary. The highlight of our mornings was the delectable made-to-order breakfast, with great varieties available. Service: Noor, the sole staff member attending to guests, gave the property an Airbnb-like atmosphere, which may be seen as charming by some but could pose challenges for others. Nonetheless, Noor's exceptional friendliness and professionalism left a lasting impression, as he graciously provided insightful recommendations for exploring the markets and beyond. The only minor drawback was the need to make reservations well in advance for on-site activities like massages and dinners due to the absence of additional staff. Hard Product: The property's contemporary architecture may differ from traditional riads, but the remodeled suites impress with their practicality, spaciousness, and modern amenities. The showers boast excellent water pressure, while bathroom amenities are not provided. Public areas are limited, as the property primarily serves as a peaceful sleeping area. Tucked away from the main streets, it offers a serene and quiet environment in the evenings.

If you ever visit Marrakesh (and you really should) then Riad Joya is the place to stay. From the moment we booked Noureddine and his team were so helpful, from arranging a driver to collect us from the airport, an excellent walking tour of the medina, to teaching us how to navigate our way around the city. The riad is beautiful and very contemporary - a welcome contrast to the noise and excitement of the medina. Our room was very spacious and had everything you could want including fresh fruit, dates and bottled water. The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax and either sunbath, watch the sunset, or enjoy the stars. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and the food was exceptional - a selection of Morrocan salads, followed by chicken with lemon and olives, and then poached pear. Breakfast (served from 7:00 am to whenever) was equally delightful with a selection of breads and pastries, fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. We hope to return.

We asked the owner to organise transfer from the airport, which is a good tip. The car takes you to the outskirts of the Medina, and a porter guides you to your Riad. if you're in Marrakech for the first time, I strongly recommend this, as there are so few reference points. Once you get over being guided down a dark alley, you're greeted by a simple door, concealing a wonderful, contemporary designed Riad. A simple but beautiful courtyard, and a warm welcome from Noureddine, the manager. The room was delightful, the A/C fully working (it matters here). What you're instantly aware of is the peace and quiet. The roof terrace is rather lovely; simple but spacious. We arrived late, and had pre-organised dinner. What came was just splendid; traditional salads (too many), a fabulous chicken tagine with lemon and olives, and poached pear for dessert. It isn't opened as a restaurant, but it certainly could be: the food is that good. The four nights we had here were just so relaxing, and the manager couldn't be more helpful in organising trips and offering directions. After a couple of days you get the hang of the old town, but it was great to have a starting point so centrally placed. I'm sure there are many lovely places to stay in Marrakech, but I can highly recommend Riad Joya as somewhere to wind down and relax after the madness of the Medina. It really is beautiful. We want to go back...

Riad Joya is right in the heart of Marrakesh, tucked away down a little alley. When the door opens it is like walking into another world. It’s peaceful, clean and relaxing. The whole experience of staying here was just great. The room was spotless and comfortable, we honestly felt so well cared for. Breakfast is pleasant and lots of it and the riad itself is stunning. The staff are all fantastic but Noor goes above and beyond. On our first night he walked us to the restaurant and gave us various landmarks to get us back afterwards. And we made it! He gave us plenty of advice and help with our visit. The transfer from airport to the edge of the medina and the medina to the hotel and back again was seamless. In the wonderful madness of Marrakesh it is an oasis of calm.
