My brother and I spent 3 nights at Fatima's amazing riad. Fatima and her family were extemely nice and kind and helped us with anything we needed. The room was extremely clean and beautiful and the riad was perfectly calm. The only thing to take into account is that the rooms themselves are quite dark (there is a terrace though)...

Returning to Marrakech for the second time this year, I chose Riad First for our stay as I was impressed with some of the photographs i'd seen online. It was my mum's first time in Marrakech and what a great choice it was to stay here for her first experience here! Our room was so spacious and everything was spotless...

I have visited Marrakech for the first time this winter, staying in a different Riad. This time I have chosen Riad First and I just couldn't go wrong! It is a hidden gem inside vibrant Medina, with interesting modern decor and lovely relaxing atmosphere. I was greeted with a traditional Moroccan dinner which was delicious. My room had an amazing...

My family and I rented the entire riad for ourselves. What a treat to have this beautiful home to enjoy in its entirety. It's location in a very quiet dead end "derb" inside the medina was absolutely perfect to enjoy the 'true' feeling of being in Marrakech. The owner, Vanessa, is a delight to deal with: always quick to answer...

We really liked this riad in the lively neighbourhood. The hosts are really friendly and helpful. The riad is quiet and nicely designed. Have breakfast on the roof terrace and enjoy the local people on the nearby souks

Beautiful little riad within the medina. The riad is owned by a French couple and run by a Morocco mother and son duo. Fatima and her son are helpful and genuine. It's true that it feels like you are staying in a friend's home as it is not exactly professionally run. Breakfast is mediocre and though the room was clean,...

It was an amazing adventure our stay on Riad First. The owner and the son were always very kind and always present when it was needed. Very nice and complete breakfast by the pool. By the way, the pool is amazing. The rooms are all of them very beautifull and clean. I truly recomend.

We received an extremely warm welcome at this lovely oasis in a very busy part of the city. Extremely stylish and comfortable accommodation with excellent service. The rooms are very well-appointed. The riad is in an excellent location for exploring the city on foot.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Riad First. All staff were friendly and accommodating. The Riad is beautifully designed and has a luxurious feel. All rooms look over the pool. The establishment has a roof top and several areas to relax in. It is well maintained and very clean. The only issues we faced were a lack of lighting in...
