#269 of 738 in Marrakech

Located in the heart of the Marrakech Medina, in the area of Bab Doukkala, easy to reach by car or a ten minute walk from the JEMAA el FNA Square and beautifull Majorelle Gardens, this 17th century Riad has been restored with full respect to the Moroccan tradition, keeping its original characteristics: a patio shaded by trees, the coolness of its very old marble fountain, peaceful living-rooms and a beautifully planted terrace where you can enjoy the Sunset and the view of the Medina...

The RIAD ASRARI is a traditional riad with wonderful moroccan craftsmanship such as sculpted plaster ceilings, exquisitely carved Cedar doors, colorful tadelakts and zelliges skilfully composed of delicate oriental patterns.

You will be welcomed with traditional pastries and Mint tea by our thoughtful and discreet staff.

You will discover peaceful places to rest: the terrace and sun-beds, comfortable sofas and the kaidale tent under which you can have your breakfast. You can also relax, read and dream in our beautiful living rooms...

On the patio, you will be enchanted by the magestic pace of our two tortoises as they follow their daily sunbathing ritual If you are patient enough you might also see our chameleon who plays hide and seek in the trees !

The furniture and decorative objects were procured during the owner's numerous travels, or were designed and made on site by Moroccan craftsmen. Many Primitive Art pieces are exhibited throughout the riad...

All of these well considered elements have been combined for a perfect getaway.

In the RIAD ASRARI, you can forget television and noisy pools...You will discover another Marrakech, in the heart of the Arabic Tradition: authentic and refined

Nice little riad with only five rooms. Tasty breakfast, freshly prepared in the morning. Lovely mint tea when we returned in the evening. In a quiet little alley, no cars, no noise at night. Although not in the inner circel of the medina I would stay there again.

We stayed at Riad Asrari on our last night in Marrakech. We can definitely highly recommend it since the inner courtyard with fruit trees is beautiful, and the junior suite in which we stayed was very comfortable and decorated in local character. Staff are friendly and helpful. The Riad is situated in a bustling local ( and completely authentic) area of Marrakech, and once you get your bearings ( ask the Riad to help you!), is close to the souks through which you can walk to the central square and mosque in about 15 minutes. Our breakfast ,elegantly served on the roof terrace ,was one of the highlights of our journey through Morocco. If we had our time again we would elect to have dinner on the terrace as well since it is a romantic and private setting! Given its authenticity and that the Riad is tucked away in a quiet passageway we would strongly suggest that you ask the management to arrange your transport to the Riad so that part of your experience is smooth. In any case, let them know your travel plans so they are expecting you. If you use Marrakech taxis agree the price before you travel and don't accept any nonsense.

An authentic stay in the heart of the real Marrakech. Friendly staff and very welcoming though we had booked for a private dinner on night of arrival but they knew nothing of that when we arrived! No restaurant so that to find somewhere to eat. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace which is pretty and relaxing. You are served bread, pastries and yoghurt with traditional mint tea. You have to walk to the Riad as no road to it and very easy to get lost! Beware unofficial guides who befriend you and take you through the narrow alleyways until completely lost and then ask for money to get you back. Book an official guide to overcome the problem of being hassled.

It's a small cosy hotel in the heart of the medina not too far away from the souks, with almost all sights of Marrakech within walking distance. The owner and the staff members are lovely and always look after your wishes and needs, trying to help and assist whenever you need something. Rooms are rather small but have a very particular design, especially the bathrooms, and the interior patio is a beautiful example for authentically Moroccan architecture. If you are travelling with a family or a group of friends, I am pretty sure that you can ask for a buyout in order to have it entirely for you, since it's only 5 rooms and suites. Breakfast is limited but you have plenty of options around. It's a very reliable property in a convenient location.

This small and excellent Riad is everything you need for a wonderful trip to Marrakech. Superbly located, very very clean, beautifully decorated rooms/suites and the staff are so friendly...!!! Be sure to ask for a transfer from and to the airport, do not miss out on a cooking class (Nezra) and make sure to enjoy a romantic dinner on the Riad’s roofterrace. Abderrahim, Nezra, Adil, Naima and ofcourse Franck, thank you so much for an unforgettable stay!

A beautiful retreat from the bustle of the medina. Every single member of staff was kind, helpful and a real credit to the Riad. Breakfast on the terrace was simple but lovely, and it was such a relaxing break to rest there each afternoon with a cup of mint tea and pastries after an busy morning exploring the souks. The Riad is perfectly located; just in reach of the main attractions, but also far enough out to maintain an air of tranquility. I would recommend the Riad to anyone; thank you for helping to make our memorable holiday!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days and really enjoyed our stay. The Riad is clean and comfortable in a traditional style but what made our stay so memorable were Adil and Naima who were staff members. Both of them were so helpful and gracious that it made our stay really memorable. Thank you to both of you being so kind.

Not easy to locate (make sure you have their local phone number, not the French one). But very friendly and hospitable. Local character. Worth upgrade to larger room. On sunny days, breakfast on upper terrace wonderful. A place to use as a base if out most of the day.
