Great riad a nice safe 10 minute wak from the main square. Great service from Mohammad, best fresh breakfast I've ever had in a hotel/hostel/b&b. Amazingly quiet for a place not far from the action, so a good few night's sleep. The great service has lots of advantages... great mint tea, fresh fruit, luggage storage etc... Will most probably be... More

Beautiful little riad in the Kasbah region. A taxi was pre booked to meet us at the airport (less than a 10 minute drive) Once we got to the area we were met by Mohammed who took us to this stylishly decorated and peaceful riad. Our room had everything we needed, comfortable bed, beautiful little bathroom with a nice hot... More

More than anything in Marrakech, it was this little Riadh that made the most lasting impression on us. For breakfast, we had crunchy warm pancakes with honey, and cinnamon flavoured coffee, planning our day with Lidie, who took the trouble to help us make any bookings, show us walking routes, recommend places, and prices to expect. After lunch we made... More

We stayed in Riad Albizzia during our whirlwind trip around Morocco and would certainly return. It is ideally located and though hard to find at first we soon worked our way around and it's very close to the centre of everything. The rooms, though small, were perfectly appointed and the breakfasts a work of art! Thank you Lydie for a... More

Riad Albizzia was beautiful. On booking, we were contacted by email to arrange a taxi and for a member of staff to meet us as it is hidden down a few alleys (but you soon learn everywhere is hidden down alleys in Marrakech!!)...and I would recommend taking the owner up on this offer. We were shown straight to a beautiful... More

This riad was recommended to us by the owner of our first riad who had no room for us when we wand to extend our stay, and it was a great recommendation. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast is great and there is a lovely roof terrace to relax on. The owner is absolutely lovely and went out of her... More

Lydia, I really enjoyed the 2 days I spent in your Riad. The Riad is in the center of old town where you are safe from cars or motorcycles, and where life still is authentic. All is very clean, excellent food, with top service . I'll be back on the next visit. Thanks Again. Caspar

A pleasant place will be nothing without a good manager ! The manager, Lydie, gives a soul to this riad. Don't forget, the house is in downtown, without the noises of the cars but with the children's neighbours. So : a very great food, a great service, good advices, good team A good trip "I'll be back"
