We have had such a great experience staying in this riad! Great location! Super close to the big square (although a bit difficult to find without a porter), beautiful rooms, and the friendliest staff you could ask for! Ayoub helped us with every request from taxi rides to tips of where to visit to requests for converters, etc. He is... More

We had a great stay of one night there. The room was very nice, spa&cious and clean. The traditional morrocoan breakfast was great. The location is quiet, but yet near the main sights. The staff members were very helpful, and even brought us to a restaurant in the evening.

Excellent service by Eunice and his team. They consistently went above and beyond in providing a wonderful stay at this beautiful Riad, conveniently located a few hundred meters from Jemaa el Fna in the center of the medina. Food was excellent as well. The entrance is unassuming and there is a dirt construction lot right next to the Riad but... More

the Riad itself was nice and the location was good but the management and organisation was bad. They provided drinks and shieshas, along with organising trips for us but they charged exorbitant pricing for each item. They had no available list of prices and we did ask for most things but occasionally quite basic things were charged at extremely high... More

We booked 24 hours upfront with this riad for three nights. Right after i booked i needed to go to a hospital, so we had to postpone our trip by about a week. All calls, emails and offers where ignored/declined. We offered to pay 1 full night due to very short cancellation and asked to use the other two nights... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and our room was very nice and comfy. The bathroom felt damp and some ventilation would be welcome, but still was nice.

The room itself, the chocolate room, was nice enough. The Bathroom was worn and chipped and damp in the corner...Although no drinking water was found, no glasses or robes, or toiletries you would expect from the prices we paid. It showed on the website a lot more than what you actually got. The photos were beautifully stage set which give... More

The stay was not bad, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was nothing to shout about. The rooftop terrace was lovely and the location of the Riad was very good as it situated near the Souks.

Although the riad itself was beautiful, and the housekeeping staff were lovely, the manager (Murad) cheated us and soured the overall Marrakech experience for us. If you're after the Choclat suite, don't bother. We booked it months ahead due to recommendations, we emailed management twice to ensure the room was ours only to arrive and find it was being 'renovated.'... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riad des Arts is a traditional riad in Marrakesh. Located just a few steps from the Jamaa El Fna square, not far from Bahia Palace, this inviting boutique riad stands within the narrow streets of the city's medina. There are palaces and souks close by, and the riad is ideally placed for exploring the Ourika valley and the Ouzoud. Airport transfers are available to guests. The hotel terrace offers sweeping views of the medina and the tip of the Koutoubia Mosque. Guests can relax on the solarium and in the hammam, taking in the mesmerising vistas, before retiring to the patio, where palm trees and touches of authentic Morocco frame the glistening pool. Guestrooms at the luxury Riad des Arts are immersed in Moroccan style. Interiors drenched in warm shades feature comfortable furnishings and modern amenities, such as WiFi access. The hotel's two salons offer homely comfort, complete with art deco armchairs, televisions and a fireplace ... more   less
