Located in the medina of Marrakech close to the soukhs and bustling Jemaa-el-Fna square, Riad el Mezouar is a tranquil and unexpected hideaway. The villa was constructed in the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries by the royal household for one of their important members of staff who was called the Mezouar, or head of royal protocol at that time, which explains its graceful and subtly grand architecture. Now a Maison d'Hotes, the riad offers 5 spacious en-suite rooms situated around the courtyard pool or on the first floor gallery level. Depending on the season, breakfast is served on the roof terrace, around the pool in the shady courtyard, the fireside winter salon or in the guest rooms. Dinner is available on request, prepared by a Moroccan cook. The aquamarine pool and rose fountain surrounded by flowers and mature trees provide a sanctuary for birds and offer shade during the heat of the day. From the roof terrace there are splendid views of the snow-covered Atlas mountains.

This was a late winter escape from endless lockdowns and greyness in London which we had had to postpone twice from November and December last year due to Covid. We knew we were coming to a wonderful retreat as I have stayed here several times before. But it was particularly sweet this time. Romaine has spent the last two years of restrictions refining her glorious old riad and it was looking magnificent in the warm spring sunshine. Her warm welcome and hospitality were brilliant as ever. The rooms are really superb and I slept wonderfully every night. The streets of Marrakech have also become even more sophisticated with lovely things to browse in the souks and shops and excellent food in numerous restaurants and cafes. We had a really lovely holiday and will I am sure be back again soon. Thankyou to Romaine and her charming staff who are so helpful and welcoming.

The hostess Romaine is one of the most gracious hostesses we have ever met. As soon as we arrived we felt at home and comfortable in her beautiful riad. The interior of her place was amongst one of the most stylish in an understated way, combining modern and classical interior. Overall looked like it was straight out of an interior design magazine, very aesthetically pleasing. Her staff were discrete and lovely, constantly paying attention to the smallest of details to ensure our stay was of the highest quality and enjoyment. The terrace was stunning and a great sun spot amongst the plants. The pool was fantastic for a quick dip when it got too hot. Romaine gave us many brilliant recommendations for restaurants and places to visit, which completely exceeded our expectations and made our visit to Marrakech all the more enjoyable. Overall, a very special experience which I will treasure forever, we have already planned our next trip back as we loved it so much!

I have had the pleasure of staying in Riad El Mezouar twice during the pandemic: once over Christmas/New Year 2020 - 2021 and again in June 2021. During both visits, the Riad provided a safe haven from the COVID storm we were all living through! The Riad itself is a model of cleanliness for the entire place which include masks, gel and social distancing. I felt safe and looked after during both of my visits. Over the years since the Riad opened, I have stayed there many times, so I have noticed that the place is consistently being updated, always with an eye for the safety and comfort of the guests. In tandem, the attention to food (delicious!) and the needs of guests is such a huge plus! The terrace now has mature plants, which offers a quiet refuge from the thrum of life outside. I can't wait to return!

In all languages the Riad El Mezouar just gets better and better. This was my third visit in 5 years. From delicious breakfasts on the terrace to dinners in the salon in front of the fireplace, Romaine Lancaster's care and hospitably made my recent stay memorable. Concerning COVID: From the moment I arrived she and her staff took the necessary sanitary precautions and protections seriously, which was a huge relief to me. Truly a restful stay with all the trimmings throughout the recent holidays and respite from these turbulent times we are all living through.

The owner Romaine has a lot to do with making our stay so enjoyable. Besides her wonderful engaging personality she pointed us in the direction of locales, restaurants, sites, etc that would interest us. Her Riad is beyond amazing and tranquil after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Delightful food, drinks, and lively conversation. Romaine has made her surroundings an Oasis in the desert with decor that your eyes will drink up and savor for years to come.

Friends who had stayed here the previous year for a special birthday celebration, highly recommended Riad El Mezouar to us and we're glad they did. This is a stunning retreat in the hustle and bustle of the medina. Romaine, the owner, has created the most tranquil haven, where service is exemplary and the finer details taken care of - delicious brunch, drinks by the fire, dinner indoors overlooking the pool, a hot water bottle in your bed and the most exquisite bedroom suite. It was a such a special way to end our travels in Morocco.

A beautiful riad in a convenient location for seeing some interesting parts of the city. We walked everywhere but it’s easy to get a taxi from nearby as well. Romaine and another of her charming guests welcomed us warmly and we had a delicious meal and lovely conversation the night we arrived which happened to be Christmas Eve. A very pleasant start to our few days of holiday! A word of thanks must go to the wonderful staff. Ismaeel, Mustafa, Khadija and her colleague whose name I didn’t catch, all looked after us perfectly and the food in particular was extraordinarily good. Brunch on the terrace each day was so generous that we didn’t need lunches. If you feel like eating in one night I heartily recommend it! Booking direct secures a discount so well worth seeking out the website and emailing Romaine. If we are ever back in Marrakech we would definitely be staying back here and I’ll be recommending it to anyone who asks me where to stay!

We stayed at Riad El Mezouar recently and found the establishment to be really most exceptional. Romaine was a fantastic host being both really friendly and helpful. She gave us invaluable tips about the locality and what to see in the relatively short time we were there (three nights) The riad itself is stunning and it has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. We really liked the fact that it only has a handful of bedrooms. The staff are charming and attentive and the food we had there was the best we had in the city. If you haven't been to a riad before, then this is the place to stay! It comes highly recommended. Thank you to Romaine and to her staff for making our stay so memorable.

We were welcomed whole-heartedly by the fabulous Romaine, the Châtelaine:-) ,and her excellent staff! Top rate experience as our Junior Suite offered a very comfortable space, and whilst we were going through gallons of fresh mint tea at all hours of the day, nothing was ever an issue, even last minute changes to our diary resulting in access required to the Riad at ridiculous hours. We ate fantastically well there, with tables romantically placed by the pool side, as, much to our enjoyment, the whole place is very stylishly decorated! The private atmosphere offers a heavenly space and the perfect escape from the hustle & bustle of the busy Medina. Love the fact, that you can almost take over the hotel for a private function or special occasion, as it's very 'boutique and intimate', which is just perfect for welcoming friends and family in a 'home from home' surrounding.

My second stay here at El Mezouar. Love it! It is a delightful place and was perfect for our small group celebrating a significant birthday together. Our host Romaine is a superwoman ... her attention to details is unsurpassed in my experience of small hotels. She and her staff are attentive but unobtrusive, managing our stay with ease though it was Ramadan. The breakfast was abundant, varied and delicious. Highly recommend this stunning riad.
