-When we arrived, we felt really welcome. -The riad looks very beautiful, even more beautiful than on the pictures that are uploaded by other reviewers. -The manager and the people working in the riad were very kind and helpful. One man even walked with us to Jemaa el-Fnaa to show us the way. -The rooms were really nice and clean and the airconditioning worked very good. -The staff speaks proper English and makes breakfast for you every morning.

Lovely hostess is Madame Marie, makes delicious breakfast. But i wouldnt stay there again. Too difficult to find. Creepy neighborhood at night. Get lost in a laberynth and not find your way out!! Even native taxi drivers cant find it and it will cost you a fortune in tips to have the locals of any age help you find the place. And they dont want just a $1 or Euro either. they expect 10, 20 euro or dollars. Intimidating. Old and rundown area.. very creepy.. The Riad is very lovely though. Just terrible location.

The Assaada was the most wonderful place to stay. Marie, the owner is an extremely special person. She is exceptionaly kind, full of charm as is her Riad. She could not do enough for you. She organised all taxis for us, all excursions, also outside Marrekesh. She made sure we had everything we needed and her home is truly exquisetly decorated. One is welcomed like a long lost friend. All the rooms are charming...well equiped and were a dream to stay in. We will definitely return because of Marie. Her Riad is not far from the center ans taking a taxi is very very cheap. The area around the riad is full if charm and bustling with life and safe. Her Riad is a few minutes away from the Hermes Villa but sadly one cannot visit. Anyone contemplating staying there, I just cannot reccommend it enough....it is a MUST..A wonderful experience the only Riad to stay in Marrekesh..... .

Marie the owner is a very kind and elegant woman and this place indeed reflects her personality. The Riad is located in the Medina 20 min walking from the main square (2 euros by taxy) and close to the Museum of Marrakech and school of Quran. Marie will welcome you and this place will become your oasis of peace and relax in the chaos of the city. I definitely recommend it!

This traditional riad is the best choice I have ever made by far. Located in the northern part of the Medina, the heart of Marrakech, we reached it thanks to a shuttle service arranged by Marie, the host: this was only the first of the many amazing things she kindly set for us, immediately followed by a delicious typical breakfast that served as refreshing welcome for us, people landed in the early morning. The riad is bright and quiet, furbished in style; bathrooms are very clean, as much as the rooms which are big enough to accommodate luggages leaving room to move around; beds are extremely comfortable and the overall sensation is pure relax. Marie introduced us to Marrakech, providing hints and suggestions along with a map of the city and walking us towards the closest "taxi stand". She has been always ready to assist us as any other guest of the riad. In terms of distance to the main attractions, just to mention a few: the souks are 15-minute walk from the riad, depending if you get lost in the labyrinth of Medina streets :) The same it takes to get to Jemaa El-Fna, the central square; 30 minutes is the walking distance to Jardin Majorelle. If interested in day tours or restaurants, she is also very well connected and is able to arrange any sort of treatment, including hammam and massages.
