Bed & Breakfast Riad in the heart of Marrakech Medina. Le J is born from a “love at first sight” of two Italians for Morocco, the desire to return to this magical city that is Marrakech and, above all, to take part. The atmosphere is very nice and comfortable, decorated in French colonial style, enhanced by exotic touches and sophisticated details. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed: a private residence in order to feel “at home”. The Riad is located in the heart of the Medina, just 300 meters from Jemaa el Fna square and next to the entrance of Souk. The Mouassine district is one of the oldest and most fascinating of Marrakech, originally occupied by the Jewish community is known for its important Mosque built in the 16th century by the Saadian dynasty with an attached monumental fountain (Mouassine Fountain) which has become a point of reference within the Medina.

Tastefully decorated, central location -- everything was great. But an extra special mention has to be made for the staff. Friendly, professional and more helpful than I've known anywhere I remember, these guys made our stay perfect.

This is the second time we stayed at Riad Le J. It is perfectly situated in the center of Marrakesh. The breakfast is superb and sumptuous, the rooms are large and air conditioned with a private bath, and the common spaces are beautiful. It is a small riad and feels like a family home as the staff and owners are very attentive and helpful. And the value is excellent. Very highly recommended!!

Don’t try to find Riad Le J on your own. Just don’t. Seriously. This Riad is in the middle of the Marrakesh Medina and it’s nearly impossible to find. When I read reviews like this prior to coming to Morocco, I thought, “oh, maybe people aren’t used to making a few turns here and there.” No. Wrong. The Marrakech Medina is labyrinthine and crowded. The last thing you want to do when you’re tired and hot is to spend 45 minutes going up and down little passageways, hoping that THIS is the one! Trust me. Been there. Done that. Ask for the host to walk you in. Ok, with that out of the way, let’s talk about what’s special and great about Riad Le J. The breakfast – the BEST we had in Morocco. Ibrahim (thank you!) set up our delicious morning meal on the private terrace outside our lovely room (Cannelle – look up and don’t miss the ceiling!!) and it was delicious, fresh, and kept us going through mid-afternoon. The showers were excellent (and just what the doctor ordered after 2 days in the Sahara!) – good water pressure, and amazingly soft and fluffy towels, complete with big pompom tassels! Don’t miss the rooftop terrace!

Very cozy Riad. Excellent staff. The rooms look exactly as they are advertised. The staff was also very helpful in arranging taxi pick-ups (train station), drop-offs (airport) and for a private, all-day driver to the Imlil Valley (very worth it). I do not have his name but the man who stays in the hotel most evenings and makes breakfast the next day, made my trip for me. On my last night in Marrakech I was the only guest in the Riad. So he decided to accompany me to drop off some post cards are the post office. Hours later we were still out and he showed me parts of the city (and local foods) I would never have seen otherwise. We even took a city bus (about $1) to go to other parts of the city (less touristic) which I would not have thought of or known how to navigate. PS. There are no TVs (that's a good thing). It made the Riad perfectly quiet. If you want to catch a game then the Riad can direct you to bars or cafes that will have it. I would certainly stay here again

We had a lovely 4-night stay at Riad Le J. Abrahim was warm and welcoming and helped us, as needed. As others have stated, it is not typically Moroccan in decor, but that didn't bother us. It is not super easy to get to from the main square, but we found our way. Oh-one thing that I thought was odd is that our rooms didn't have locks and we didn't have key for the front door. The latter wasn't a problem, as we were always welcomed in quickly when we rang, and the former wasn't a problem, either--it was just not typical.

Great staff and intimate Riad, which was value for money. Enjoyed a great home cooked meal at the Riad on our last night. Would return here when next in Marrakech, which I hope is soon as we loved it there.

Although nicely decorated (but not really Morrocan) the experience here was... well unusual and I would not return. 99% of my reviews are 5*but tripdadvisors works because we want honest reviews. I was the only guest as apparently some of the rooms were being renovated and overall it felt isolated and quiet. I was awoken in the night by someone banging on the door to be admitted (I was the only guests) and in the morning two men where asleep (one face planted on the cement floor) behind a curtain on the main floor courtyard. No one was awake, breakfast was not ready and despite their alarm ringing - no one was waking up. My guide arrived (I let him in) and we decided to just leave them sleeping with their alarm ringing. Maybe comical at some level but on the other hand not really. Sorry Riad J - I'm pretty chill as an adult male traveler but other travelers and particularly young women travelling alone would have had the right to be very upset and somewhat worried. Bonne chance... I'm sure it was a glitch as your reviews are mostly strong

Response from Riad-Le-J, Proprietario at Riad Le J
Responded Jul 31, 2018
Dear Francois, i'm very, very sorry and disappointed for this problem during your stay. Unfortunately I did not have your email address to write you and submit my personal apologies. The main night guardian had a problem that night, and the substitute sent was certainly not up to the task, as you have noted. This disturbs me even more because, as you may have noticed, our staff is a strong point in our reviews, above all the night guardian. That still does not justify what happened and i'll take measures to avoid any possible recurrence of these facts. If you plan to be in Marrakech in the future i'll be glad to offer you an "amends night" so try to convince you that, unfortunately, it was an isolated event. Sorry again and kind regards, Antonio Micheli

My husband and I stayed at Riad Le J for 4 nights total in April, two in the Safran room and two in the Menthe room, and had a great stay overall. The Riad is in a very convenient location, an easy walk down to Djemaa el-Fna, many of the major historic sites, souks, and restaurants. The staff at the Riad were helpful with suggestions and provided a good breakfast. The riad itself was nice- the rooms were pretty, comfortable, and generally quiet, as there are only four rooms (though, if you are a light sleeper like me, riads can be bit challenging with the central courtyard.) We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
