There's nothing like being in the bustling, lively Medina...I'll taken this any day, over a staid sojourn in a typical city hotel. Our hosts were the epitome of pleasant hospitality. Our every need was catered for with a smile. Road Shaden is down a long narrow alley, a very short walk from Bab Aylen. And a 10 minute walk from...

This riad was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there last year. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff, who were always around to give advice, recommendations etc. Wish we had been able to stay longer, but at least we know where we will be staying on our next visit.

Spent 3 nights beginning of October 2016 at Riad Shaden, which was just not long enough. The Riad is a lovely traditional hideaway and we were welcomed by Said who was lovely and very helpful. It was lovely to relax on the rooftop with a bottle of wine after a hectic day and we can recommend the food at Riad...

We stayed here for a short break, everything was excellent, rooms were as shown on the website, the staff were lovely, friendly and always helpful. Breakfast was good, different every day and dinners good value and good choice. Close enough to main square but far enough away to be able to experience local life. We loved it.

We stayed at the Riad Shaden at the beginning of June. We were very pleased with our hotel rooms. The rooms are very clean and very authentic to the region. Breakfast came with our stay and that was a great way to start our day. The staff was wonderful, always helpful and made us feel very welcomed. They arranged to...

We are just back from a week in Riad Shaden and had a very enjoyable stay. it is an easy and interesting walk from the main square and we found it to be within walking distance of all the Marrakech "must sees." The roof terrace is a pleasant place to enjoy a siesta and the Riad is quiet at night...

We stayed at Riad Shaden from 16-19 March 2016 and Youseff and the team made our stay extremely enjoyable. The Riad organises the airport transfers to make your arrival as stress-free as possible. The Riad is very comfortable and homely, and you could easily spend a relaxing afternoon reading on the rooftop terrace or in the small lounge if you...

Quiet and peaceful. Very pleasant staff. Bit of a walk from main square. All added to the experience. Used tuktuk to come back to riad cost 25 mad. Very safe for two ladies on their own. The souks are good fun if not really good value. Interesting trip to mountains showing Berber house and Argan factory.

I would normally always respond to a 3 out of 5 review, however I am at a loss to know how to reply to a review which does not in fact mention any problems or areas where we could improve our service. We know that these guests in fact had a great stay with us, which is evident from the...

The location is 15 mins from the main square and will give you the opportunity to see life as it is! Out of the touristic atmosphere...To find it can be a challenge as fascinating! Our room was basic but comfortable! The safe isn't safe! It should be attached to the wall. The team is ready to help you any time!...
