The Riad is really a hidden gem located in the beautiful Medina of Marrakesh. The manager Luca and the staff are very kind and helpful and made us feel welcome! They gave us many recommendations prior... More

Had such an amazing stay at Riad Samarkand, beautiful rooms and interiors, meticulously curated with a warm and wonderful staff. We had 2 nights of amazing home cooked meals prepared by chef Boushra and their manager Luca was super helpful. Definitely planning on returning and staying at the riad again.

Beautifully decorated, wonderful roof terrace, gorgeous garden and public spaces. We enjoyed our breakfast in the garden. The location is close enough to all sorts of attractions and far enough from hustle and bustle.

Beautiful small Riad in a good quiet location but only 15 minute walk to main sites of Marrakech. Stayed in the Samarkand suite which was huge with nice balcony over the courtyard gardens, large bathroom with domed roof. Staff very friendly and helpful, Luca made reservations and helped with dinner recommendation which made our first visit to Marrakech more enjoyable.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Riad Samarkand. The place is small and very picturesque. The manager and staff are most helpful, smiling and willing to walk the extra mile to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Thanks a lot for a nice time in the midst of Marrakech.

Amazing Riad in Marrakech. Samarkand was the perfect oasis from the bustling, busy streets. Very quiet with lovely areas to enjoy tea or afternoon siesta including a gorgeous rooftop! Staff was friendly, professional and courteous... Luca was a star and made sure all our needs were completely taken care of including setting us up with a fantastic Saharan adventure. Thank... More

Spent four nights / two dinners . Excellent ambience, reception and excellent food , both breakfast and moroccan dishes. Beautiful views of the atlas mountains. Good area for visiting the medina. Nice antique moroccan decoration and large splendid rooms . Would go there again anytime. Hopefully they soon will have a hammam.

I treated myself to a holiday in Morocco to celebrate my 38th birthday earlier this month and stayed at Samarkand. I'd heard about the Riad from a few colleagues but their descriptions couldn't possibly capture the true beauty of this place. It's exquisite! From the moment I arrived (at the airport nonetheless - as they arrange transportation for guests) straight... More
