“A little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

You know when your accomodation doesn't quite match up to those enigmatic professional photographs you viewed on the internet, well Riad Vert is certainly NOT one of those. This little gem of a Riad far exceeded our expectations, it is tastefully decorated, comfortable and spacious, and a tranquil escape from the chaotic hubbub of the Medina directly outside its doors.

We travelled as a party of eight to celebrate my birthday and took four of the seven rooms available. Each room has it's own charm and we were all smitten with our individual accomodation. The public areas are traditional yet stylish and Isabel's good taste is evident throughout the Riad. The roof terrace is divine! There are a lot of steps but my 84 year old father made it up them (although he did have the bedroom on the ground floor which is worth considering if you struggle). Though the Riad is not in the tourist area of the Medina, it is a short taxi ride to Jemaa el fna if you'd rather not get lost in the maze of alleyways. That said, it is an interesting walk to the Souks and the square, and is not very far once you get your bearings; I always felt safe. It's worth keeping a few coins or a small note to give to the many locals who will offer their services as a guide should you lose your way!

The staff are wonderful. Azziza, last to bed and first to rise, who crept around making sure we had everything we needed and always had a gentle smile. The lovely Sanna put up with the varying needs of a mixed age party, with patience and a sense of humour. She advised us on everything, booked restaurants, taxis, trips and the Hammam (a must do!) and had the grace to compliment us on ther bargains we had secured at the Souk even when we knew we could have got a better price! Fatima cooked us the most delicious meals, even preparing something in advance before returning to cook for her family during Eid. She provided us with the tastiest Morrocan dishes we would experience during our stay. Aicha, with her cheeky smile, tidied and cleaned up after us and kept the Riad spotless. Isabel and Dominic have chosen all their staff wisely and everything runs seamlessly. Riad Vert feels like a home from home.

If you like your accomodation to have a plasma TV, power shower and wired in hairdryer and rate it on the quality of the toiletries you stash in your suitcase to come home, Riad Vert isn't for you. This was my second visit to Marrakech, I found the city magical the first time, this trip I found accomodation to match and I will certainly return to Riad Vert.

Riad Vert would be highly recommended for any visit in Marrakech. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful - full of useful trips to make sure that you get the most out of your stay! Nothing is too hassle - they take the time to make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive and help you to navigate your travel around Marrakech and organise excursions, taxis etc! The rooms are extremely clean - cleaned on a daily basis and tastefully decorated. The food at the Riad is excellent, due to the culinary skills of Fatima, who cooks a variety of Moroccan meals on a daily basis and never makes a bad dish! I would definitely recommend this Riad to anyone who is planning to visit and hope to return there myself on my next trip!

Our arrival at the Riad Vert was a considerably later in the evening than planned, due to flight delays. We had booked our transfer via the riad and the driver was there to meet us at the airport despite our late arrival. On reaching the riad we were met by Sanna who made us feel so welcome. We registered and were then shown our room and the rest of the riad. After a quick freshen up we sat down to a meal that we had pre-booked.
Sanna was a mine of information and the help and guidance she give us regarding navigating our way around the Medina and sights of Marrakech were invaluable.
It had been our intention to eat at a variety of restaurants in the evenings, but after spending a good proportion of our days walking and sightseeing we were more than happy to return to the tranquility of the riad and have our evening meals there. Fatima delighted us with different dishes each evening and the food was without a doubt the tastiest we have ever had in a hotel. After a relaxed meal we retired to the roof terrace with a bottle of wine and took in the sights and sounds of the northern medina.
All the rooms are individually and tastefully decorated and whilst our room did not have a window it was well lit and with the help of a very efficient air conditioning unit, lovely and cool.
I would most difinitely stay at the Riad Vert in the future and would like to thank Sanna and her team for making our first trip to Marrakech truly memorable.

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Riad Vert. Sanna did everything to make our stay enjoyable. She offered advice about shopping in the souks, booked day trips and taxis, gave us remedies when my husband had an upset stomach. She also made sure we tasted something different each day when we booked evening meals which were always very good and reccommended local restaurants. She was friendly and cheerful, nothing was too much trouble. Her help and advice was much appreciated as Marrakech is not the easiest of places to navigate around!
As the riad only has about 5 rooms, it is a lovely homely place to stay and it was interesting to converse with other guests and share our holiday experiences.
Sanna went above and beyond to make our stay very memorable. Thank you so much. This is a holiday we wont forget.

I am not sure what more I can add to the very positive and glowing feedback that has already been written on here about the Riad Vert, but I will give it a go! From the moment we stepped through the door, to a welcoming Sanna and a refreshing mint tea, to the time we left, we couldn’t have wished for a more charming, relaxing and friendly place to stay. Sanna was brilliant in making sure you knew where you were going with her map directions, and also making sure you didn’t overpay for anything when haggling! She also gave us good tips on restaurants and day trips too, the day long trip into the mountains is a must, but wear sensible shoes! The food at the Riad was excellent, Aziz is a master in the kitchen, and I even ate courgette and aubergine for the first time ever, which gives you some idea of the quality of the dishes he put together. And as Shaun J wrote earlier, we were fortunate to have other fantastic guests staying at the same time, Shaun and Paula, and Mia and Linda, it is the sort of place that seems to draw likeminded travellers!! This is one city and Riad that I would definitely return to, and I would have no hesitation in recommending. Next time though, maybe we will go when it isn’t 48 degrees!! Alan and Kat

Room Tip: Arrange your transfer with the Riad itself, they take you right to the door.

We returned from a week at Riad Vert. I can only agree with the other comments posted here. Yes, it is a bit of a walk from the square, and at first glance you may wonder where on earth you are going, but once through the big door you are in an oasis of calm. I'm so glad we stayed here and not at one of the big hotels - we soon found ourselves at home in this corner of the Medina, chatting with the locals. Isobel, Sanaa and the staff are great. The Riad was very clean and our room was lovely. The roof terrace was also a great place to relax and cool down as we had exceedingly hot temperatures when we were there. Special mention must go to Aziz who is the most unobtrusive, kind and sensitive man. Of course you have to be careful in Marrakech but if you can get past the unofficial 'guides' who will try to get a 'present' from you if they show you round a corner, the people are really friendly. Riad Vert is a great place to stay - 7 rooms, all different, very clean and the staff are very hospitable - can definately recommend it.

Had a great time at the Riad Vert, from the time we arrived Sanaa and her team, Aziz, fatima and Aisha looked after us like family, soon as we arrived we were treated to a mint tea which relaxed us straight away, great air conditioned room which was very comfortable. Great food, Chicken and lamb tagine that melted in the mouth.
We were lucky to have some other lovely gusts staying as well, Alan & Kat also Mia and Linda.
Sanaa was so helpful, from booking taxis to recommending places to eat, all in all we had a fantastic time. ;0)
