Lovely riad which served delicious elegantly prepared food. Attractive room although not a lot of floor space. Arranged horse riding for me, the stables came and collected me from the hotel. Helpful staff.

My wife and I spent four wonderful nights here. The riad is located on a very quiet side street. The rooms are comfortable and the place is in great shape. I recommend getting the top floor Berber suite if possible. The manager, Mohammed, is a great guy. One evening, he cooked us probably the best meal I've had in the... More

We stayed in Riad Alech for four nights and we loved it. Mohamed is the host and he is an exceptionally nice man and made us feel very welcome in his home. In fact, our stay coincided with Ramadan and he invited us to the evening feasts with his family where we got to share the experience which was absolutely... More

Located in the middle if the Medina. The owner was very accommodating and helpful and prepared some omelettes when we arrived. Our room was on the ground floor and it was very humid. Unfortunately the room doesn't have a proper door on the patio so during the night we could hear everything that was going on. Not a problem if... More

We stayed 4 nights in this Riad, the rooms are individually decorated, clean and comfortable. The location isn't the easy to find on arrival, but we emailed the Riad and arranged to be met at the Supratours office by a carrier who took our cases and showed us the way. Very central to everything. Our stay was over Valentine's Day... More

We enjoyed the worm hospitality of the owner of this nice and well kept riad. After the long way from Marrakesh to Esauira and the stressing task of avoiding some annoying people offering a place were to stay just entering into the Medina of Esauira we could relax on the terrace of Riad Alech resting with a delicious maroccan meant...

The incredible host (Mohamed), romantic rooms and extensive breakfast are making this Riad a place you don't want to miss. We had a great time here during NYE. The host cooked a traditional diner, invited a live berber music performance and hired a calligrapher to write our names as a special memory. It's a small Riad that I can highly... More

The building and all the rooms were saw inside it were of a high quality, nicely decorated and kept very clean. Considering there are only 3 bedrooms the inside and rooftop communal areas offer ample space to relax. The main thoroughfares and sights of the medina are all within 5 minutes walk. The staff were very friendly. If we were... More

I'm only giving this riad a good rating because of the staff that work their. Boushra; the housekeeper (moroccan girl), was amazingly friendly and attentive, and was able to interact well despite her limited English. She made us feel welcome and at home, and I felt sorry for her climbing up and down the stairs every morning for breakfast! The... More
