Make sure you book airport transfer to the Riad, which is 15 Euros. We were massively ripped off by the airport taxi by paying 250 Dirums, approximately £19.60 and although not a lot the going rate should be no more than 100 dirum. We got further ripped off by street kids who surrounded the taxi when we arrived at our Riad along with an adult on a motorbike who grabbed our suitcases out of the trunk of the car and walker 20- steps to the door of the Riad and demanded we give them a ‘present’ for doing so. The confusion and not knowing if this was really our accommodation led us to stupidly offer 150 dirum for their service. The Riad was pleasantly clean and presentable – about 15 mins walk to the Medina on a very busy ‘road’ no pavement where the excitement of competing with the traffic of cars, horse and cart, motor bikes and push bikes is a must experience. The Riad manager was very welcoming and friendly. He was very helpful in terms of printing out maps for destinations and giving guidance on places to visit. Breakfast each morning on the rooftop was pleasant and enough to start the day. There are no picturesque views to mention. Now and again you can smell the drains. The bedroom was comfortable and clean with typical Moroccan décor. The pictures on the website are very true to real life, however, there are large mirrors in each of the room which is deceptive to the size of the rooms. Similarly the same can be said about the Spa. We did not use the Spa as it was very small had low ceilings which didn’t bode well with myself and my daughter who are quite tall. Be warmed: DO NOT leave any cash in your wallets or purses anywhere accessible or visible as over the course of 2 days cash went missing from our purse that was left accessible in our suitcase from a padlocked room. First day it happened we questioned if we were mistaken, however on the 2nd day after checking the cash remaining from the 1st day we noticed that more cash went missing. We alerted the manager who said the cleaner could not have done this and because we didn’t have proof there was nothing we could do

The riad was very hard to find by yourself. Not all the staff speaks English so the communication was hard sometimes. They do not accept credit cards and they prefer if you can pay with euros. The location was good, approximately 20-25 minutes walk from the centre. The room was not so clean though and on the last day, we did not have warm water, a problem that took some hours to be solved. And generally, the riad did not look so clean either.

We have booked a suite which we couldnt wait to stay in however after we wanted to park in the „promised private parking” we found out that all the way around is construction and the only place we can park is in the crowd far from the hotel. Since we had a rented car with high deposit the parking was a cruicial issue. Moreover the surrounded area is quite dangerous, we have been attacked by some locals (who were friends of the hotel staff and he did not do anything). Overall we had to escape from there to keep the car and ourselves safe – everything happened infront of the hotel staff and after all they have withdrawn the money from our account due to „not showing up”. It is impossible to contact them, they are careless and do not inform the guests if there is any change but requests the money for no service. I do not recommend this place to anyone, there are many other in the nearby area with caring and helpful people working in.

Spent 4 days at riad. Nice and clean room with own bathroom. The host took care of us , organised tours , highly recommend the quad bike tour 😊. Nice breakfast on roof terrace. The only minus is that it is located far from new town centre. On evenings we were taking taxi to go to cafe or lounge , for a taxi for 5people we payed 100 dirhans which is 8pounds for one way.

If you're looking for a traditional Moroccan experience and want to stay in a genuine Riyadh then I'd say this is probably one that you should consider. Tucked away from the Medina Square you really are not in the hustle and bustle. The owners were really pleasant and helpful and they were extremely courteous and friendly. We also had our first hammam experience here which was amazing and I had one of the best body massages I've ever had. I am only giving it four stars because annoyingly there were a couple of things that could have made it five. The lighting in the rooms is very very dark and that is not good for make up application! Also the selection at breakfast was very limited bread, bread and more bread with tepid coffee. All in all I would highly recommend this Riyadh.

I stayed in Riad Jnane Jdid (or Jnane Agdal and Spa... the names were used interchangeably) for five nights. Upon arrival, Hanan, the riad host was warm and helpful. She printed me out a map noting all the main tourist spots and shortcuts, noted the places where I had planned on visiting, and gave me the phone number of the hotel in case I needed help. She even told me how to use the bus system when I visited Jardin Majorelle, explained how much taxis should cost, and during her break one day, took me to the souks and helped me haggle. The breakfast was always delicious, but I rarely had a chance to enjoy it since all my excursions left so early in the morning. I will say, if you want eggs for breakfast, which quite a few guests did want, tell them the night before. Things like that aren't just stocked in hopes someone wants it. They prefer to buy things fresh. Which is what you want, right? It's like going to France and saying,"Hey, that day old baguette, can I have it tomorrow for breakfast?" Like, why? On one occasion I requested dinner before leaving for my daily jaunt and returned to couscous, chicken tagine, a medley of vegetables, and harira (a soup). If I could replay this meal for the rest of my life, I probably would. The couscous was exactly as you'd imagine it to be. While there, I treated myself to a hamam treatment and massage, which may have been the most amazing spa treatment ever received. I had a hamam treatment once at the Shangri-la in Toronto, and another time in Austria. Both were star-worthy experiences, but there's something about having it done in a place that locals get it done weekly. It felt authentic, and the massage was the best massage I have ever had. And finally, the accommodations. I don't think I'll stay at another Riad, unless they don't have space during my next trip, but this place will be my go to spot. Every morning I was awoken by the chirping birds on my sill (I slept with the windows open for air circulation), and the natural light of the sun. It sounds like a fairytale, but part of me really thinks it was.

Quaint is the word that comes to mind. The Riad Jnane Jdid is a beautifully restored old private residence that has been turned into a guesthouse at some point. It only has 6 rooms. The accommodations are very nice, just not luxurious. This Riad is right next to the garden Terrain Charij that seams to be newly planted. In time the place will be a real asset to the Riad. The Quartier Jnane Lâafia, south of the Riad is under renovation so the hole area will be very nice in a few years. But now it is in a quiet area of the city with only a short walk to anyplace in the old town. They offer every available service, but cant quite deliver. If you want dinner, let them know at the start of your day. They get dinner delivered so it is a good idea to let them know early. Your best bet is to skip dinner at the hotel and go to one of the restaurants in a walking distance from the Riad. The place is clean and the service is very friendly. If they would just stick to what they are good at, this would be a 5 star guesthouse in stead of a 2 star hotel. A good idea is to go online and read the online revues of restaurants. Just skip the most glorying ones. It seams that there are many places that cant quite live up to their online revues. You can quickly spot the ones that are written by visiting tourists and not friends.

I definitely recommend this Riad, it is so beautiful, the rooms are so luxurious, you feel like you are in a Moroccan palace. The staff was so amazing, especially Benjamin, he made sure we always had anything we needed, gave us his personal cell number so if we got lost at any point we could call him for directions, or if we needed anything. Always willing to give us tips on good things to see and do while in Marrakech. He always made us feel like we were his only guests. He was so friendly, there were a few nights when we stayed up just joking and talking with him and made us feel like we were with friends, not in a hotel. There was also a woman who worked there named Khadija she was the one who made breakfast for us and made sure our room was always made up, she made amazing breakfast pastries, when you visit, make sure you eat breakfast there, you will know what Moroccan pastries are supposed to taste like. :) The entire Riad was so very beautiful, like a palace, made us feel like celebrities, but the real reason we can't wait to go back is the staff. Benjamin and Khadija were more like family we were visiting while there.

I cannot recommend this riad enough. From start to finish the level of hospitality, the rooms, the food all outstanding. On arrival we were met by Riaz who served us tea and cup cakes while he drew up a map for us noting tourist spots and directions to the square and back which is about a 15 min walk. Next to our room which was beautiful, a 4 poster bed, crisp white sheets, intricately tiled bathroom, all solid wood Moroccan style furniture with picturesque stained glass windows looking down to the courtyard and pool area below. Our room was serviced everyday to a high standard and a laundry service was also included in the price. The riad is a little oasis in every way you could define one. The pool area is peaceful and cool, upstairs on the roof terrace where breakfast is served you have views across the city and onwards to the mountains. On the terrace there is the kitchen, breakfast was Moroccan pancakes, yoghurts, mint tea, fruit juice and a selection of pastries. There are also sunbeds. The staff at the riad are some of the best you will ever meet. Shout out to Ayoub! (from Jane & Ollie) who's hosting skills never ceased to amaze us. He is very happy and super helpful, he did anything he could to make our stay more comfortable. If you want advice on where to go and the best excursion companies to use he is the man to ask, curious about local customs he's happy to explain it, no red wine left - he'll go fetch some more! :) All in all a fantastic stay and we were very impressed with the service and beautiful rooms.
