I really enjoyed my stay at this riad. It is well located in the medina on a quiet lane close to the main square, however, I'd recommend having them help you get to the riad from the taxi drop-off point when you first arrive, because the medina can be a bit of a maze. The staff were very friendly and... More

If you are easy to get lost in small streets and around many corners, this might not be your place. But if you look for a quiet place, hidden away from the Marrakesh city hazzle, this might be perfect. We spent four days (3 nights) here in the Chambre Royale, and we absolutely loved it. The house offers 5 rooms,... More

We stayed for a week in the end of January and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location, facilities, food were just perfect for us. Noel, Fabrice, Simo, Abu and staff were so welcoming and warm without being overbearing. The breakfasts on the terrace were a treat and all these home made jams were a particular hit! They made it look... More

I could not think of a better way of experiencing a city like Marrakech than in the hospitality of the team at Riad Villa El Arsa. The room (el Kantara) was on the ground floor (so ideal if you require easy access) and extremely comfortable. It was very warm for our Feb stay, but I imagine would be lovely and... More

Our 6 night stay at Riad Villa El Arsa was a treat in Marrakesh! The minute we stepped in, we were swept away by positive vibes. The owner Noel, an extremely courteous gentleman, welcomed us with sincere warmth. He gave us a tour of the villa, or Riad in Arabic. We felt at home right away. A tiny oasis, the... More

This was our first visit to Marrakech and the staff/owners at the Riad were very very hospitable and welcoming . Breakfast was delicious every day and the mint tea and sweets were a delight on our return from the Souks and sightseeing. Would highly recommend and would love to come back one day .

We highly recommend a stay in this riad. Noël and Fabrice and rest of their team were excellent hosts, and made us feel home. Communication prior to our trip and the booking went seemless. Everything is well thought of, from transportation to/from the airport, delicious and varied breakfast and option to dine in as well. Good recommendations for shopping, dining,... More

Our family of six stayed here in January 2016. I was not the one who made the arrangements to stay at Villa El Arsa but it could not have been a better choice. It was our first trip to Morocco and any doubts I had about staying in a hotel in the souk vanished the moment we stepped inside. The... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this wonderful Riad with a family of 6 in 3 rooms. The Riad is decorated and maintained in a very authentic style as opposed to some riads which are extensively updated with modern fittings. It is wonderfully decorated. Both Fabrice (who cooks wonderful meals) and Noel are wonderful, welcoming and friendly hosts who go... More

This ryad is excellent! The service they provide is awesome. Before arrival, Noel sent us a email including the map telling you how to arrive the ryad from the big square. We ordered a transfer service from the airport the day of arrival, which is very good. We had tea and patisseries every night. The breakfast on the terrace is... More
