The Riad was simply perfect. The staff was super nice. Everything was clean and everyone was super helpfully. When we wanted to do trips, the staff helped and planned it immediately. When there were problems, it was their biggest pleasure to help. Thank you for making our journey to Marrakech that awesome. :)

very clean , spacious and tranquil Riad within a 5 min walk from the main square / market. The staff are one of the friendliest and helpful I have come across. Going out of their way to help us make the most of our stay. The Riad is hard to find at first so I would recommend getting a transfer... More

This riad really made our Marrakech experience. The rooms are spacious, elegant, and fully air-conditioned. The staff is friendly and helpful. The terrace offers beautiful views of the city, and all rooms open up to the courtyard pool (or a balcony overlooking the pool). The location is very central, though you have to look for the door to know you're... More

I order room on hotels.com, but quickly get a E-mail where the staff at the Riad offers to pick me up at the airport. Nice i think. Are you good at bargaining, you can clear 50 dirham from the airport to Hotel Tazi located 200 meters from the riad. But normally it costs 100 dirhams by taxi. Al Assala offering... More

This riad might be difficult to find in the first place but that should not be the reason to put you off. This place offers good value for your money in overpriced place to stay like Marrakesh. I would suggest booking transfer service directly from the hotel. You will pay a little bit more but it will remove the hassle... More

If you are going to Marrakech, this little hotel right off the Big Square (Souks) is a must! Wonderful sanctuary after the craziness of the city. Hotel manager (Hajiba) and staff were wonderful. Hajiba could not have made us feel more welcome. She went over and above to make our stay special and even sorted out an issue I had... More

Riad Al Assala is the perfect place to stay during your visit to beautiful Marrakech. From the moment we arrived, my sister and I received excellent service from all staff members, from reception to cleaning to management. There are only 6 rooms but all decorated uniquely in a traditional Moroccan way. There's a beautiful rooftop terrace and even a pool... More

I was most happy to discover the Riad Al Assala Medina on my recent visit to Marrakech. The property was delightful, very clean well equipped and comfortable. Moreover, the staff, particularly Hajiba were incredibly hospitable and extremely helpful and accommodating. If and when I return, I'll certainly book again at this marvelous property.
