The photos really could not do this place justice. The Riad is stunning, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It's a short and very simple walk to the main square - lots of people talk about getting lost in Marrakesh but it's a really easy, safe and short walk to all the wonderful sights. The transfer from the airport was arranged... More

First trip to Morocco and this Riad was stunning! On arrival we were greeted with mint tea and almond cakes which was perfect after a long journey, and our bags were kindly brought to our room. The riad is beautiful and immaculately kept, and the staff are very helpful, even booking a bus for us to go visit Essaouria after... More

We enjoyed our stay for 3 nights in Riad Alaka. Especially the hospitality of both Younnes and Aziz was very generous and very friendly. Rooms were big enough, clean and good bed. A baby bed was arranged without any issues. It was nice to experience Marrakech from a Riad in the medina. Also location was good, between the famous square... More

We spent four nights at the Riad Alaka and found it comfortable, convenient and kind. Aziz and the other staff are extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was simple and lovely. Beer was available. Nice jacuzzi, too! Be sure to let them know if you want to book anything special - tour, massage, dinner - they offer more than they... More

Would highly recommend this riad. Beautiful interior, lovely beds and rooms and the staff were extremely friendly. We opted for them to organise the taxi to/from airport and it was seamless. Very warm welcome when we got there with refreshing mint tea. The jacuzzi was lovely to come back to and this place is totally a haven from the busy... More

Close to one of the main games of the medina. Greeted with mint tea. Staff incredibly hospitable and friendly. Tucked away so it's quiet. They cooked dinner for 13 friends and didn't mind that 2 canceled last minute due to travel problems. Dinner was delicious. Wine is available, and we enjoyed drinking wine on their rooftop terrace jacuzzi. Highly recommend.

You will not find more friendly and kind hosts. I was welcomed with tea, sweets, and introduced to my room, which was both clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and served on the rooftop terrace. Here you also find sun beds, jacuzzi and lounge-area. My flight was late in the evening and I was offered not only to leave my... More

We arrived at Riad Alaka around 9pm, we had an arranged driver pick us up from the airport. He led us straight to the riad (it seemed at first difficult to find but after being here for a few days, it's actually really easy to find!) The riad is located within a small market Bab Doukala. And within walking distance... More

It is hard to imagine a more friendly and welcoming place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Aziz, who will also cook you delicious dinners which take account of personal preferences and let you watch him prepare them in his kitchen.
