“Scented sanctuary in the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place is a lovely tranquil riad in the old city. A great place to stay while you explore the city. Staff v helpful. Heavenly pool in the courtyard surrounded by citrus trees, flowering in spring. Great roof garden with views over town. Close to main square.

We returned to Le Rihani after a fabulous time there the first time we went to Marrakech. The second time we were there we got engaged on the rooftop terrace at sunset! It is a beautiful spot and the staff take great care of you. Relaxing on the sun beds on the rooftop with a mint tea is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle, yet you are still right in the middle of action in the medina. Lovely breakfasts and lovely rooms. I had a fantastic massage too. We will be back.

Lovely welcoming riad Souat and Mahmoud were attentive and helpful throughout the stay . We had been in contact with Cecile in advance to arrange trips and transfers and she was so helpful. The riad is lovely, perfect place to relax and yet only five minutes from the main square. We had two excellent dinners great spa treatments and Cecile arranged the balloon trip and guided medina tour to our exact requirements , both are must dos and Kamal the city guide is excellent. Thank you riad Le Rihani for a memorable and great stay. Would recommend highly

This Riad allows you to spend a few days in reasonable comfort in the heart of the Medina (in our case a full week). Our suite was less spacious than we expected - low, narrow archways leading from one room to the next. The dim lighting coupled with small windows may be a pleasant antidote to the hot summer sun but on balance we'd have preferred a bit more light. The maintenance leaves a bit to be desired - squeaky doors, loose bathroom fitting. Sound insulation is also poor - luckily our neighbors and the staff were quiet and discreet. Breakfast was tasty but unvaried. We were particularly happy with the friendly, hard-working local staff who made our visit a memorable one. We ourselves probably wouldn't repeat the Riad experience but it's certainly worth a try for couples without kids.

Room Tip: Just be aware in advance of the type of accommodation a Riad involves.

Perfect place to stay if you want to be in the center of Medinaen. The manger and all her staff did their best to make us all feel at home - which we did! Our two teenage daughters and we stayed in one of the two suits. ( 2 doble + 1 singel bed) Enjoy it very much and can recommend it to everyone.

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this centrally located Riad, easy to get everywhere. The food that was prepared when we ate in was terrific and true Moroccan, breakfasts also very good. It is a charming Riad with lovely central courtyard with the compulsory lemon trees. We found the rooms to be more than adequate, a little tight in the bathroom area but then one does expect that when travelling in other parts, especially older cities.

The staff were extremely friendly and would do anything for you. Also gave excellent suggestions for local restaurants which were superb. Would def stay there again.

Great location right in the Medina, close to the main square but in a quiet backstreet. Beautiful Riad with staff very willing to please. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely and the evening meals are traditional and tasty. Haman was a real experience. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Grise was fine but there are bigger rooms
