This riad is just great! Very typical house and decoration. Very clean and staff is so nice. If going back to Marrakech I will choose this same place. Don't be scared about the location, dirty and narrow road... But yeah... It's the Medina! Taxis don't go to the door of the riad, but staff will come to you so you... More

Lovely Riad. The owner and all the staff are really friendly and so lovely and helpful. We had special requirements for disability, and everything was attended to easily and without fuss. It was like a little oasis of calm and serenity in the madness of the city. Green, cool, and welcoming. Would most definitely go back here. Oh - and... More

Stayed here for the start of our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. The Riad, the staff and Didier, the owner, were delightful and ensured that we were well looked after. Really couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip to Morocco...we will be back!

A wonderful place in every respect. Peaceful, beautiful small hotel in a great location. Didier and colleagues could not do enough to help and made the stay excellent. Very much recommend the Road Rafaele.

Riad Rafael was the perfect start and end to our Morocco adventure. We stayed a total of 6 nights and we will for sure return. From the minute we arrived Into their beautiful riad through the peculiar white hallway and the gorgeous fronylt door, we felt right at home (perhaps wishing our home was as beautiful) . The beautiful courtyard... More

We stayed at Riad Rafaele for 5 nights, and had a wonderful time. Although our room was on the ground floor, is was so peaceful and we were never disturbed by other guests. The staff were brilliantly friendly, and catered to our every need (including recommending some fantastic restaurants). We definitely recommend to anyone visiting Marrakech!

Riad Rafaele is in the heart of the Medina, which is a crazy and busy place. Inside the riad is the complete opposite: it is so peaceful and tranquil. You cannot hear any noise from outside. I believe that there are seven rooms within Riad Rafaele, ensuring quality service from the staff. The staff, in particular Hisham were superb. He... More

Having loved everything Marrakech we went back for a 2nd time and chose to stay at the same beautiful riad - why change when you have found one that ticks all the boxes ! It's in a great spot for exploring the city and is right in the heart of the souk for shopping trips . The staff are so... More

I had never heard of a Riad until my boyfriend mentioned to me that they are better than hotels as they are more like a traditional experience and a traditional Moroccan home with different levels. I thought it sounded fabulous but as always check trip advisor and could only see fantastic reviews. Riad Rafaele was definitely a beautiful place to... More

The riad is located in the medina, about a 10-minute walk from Jma El Fna square, and is easily accessible. The riad itself is beautiful and wonderfully decorated, with a very attentive staff, and owners who are extremely helpful to travelers. The work they put in to renovate the structure is truly amazing. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts in... More
