On deciding to visit Marrakech we chose Riad Elizabeth on the recommendation of friends (who had stayed there a few years ago) and we were not disappointed! Prior to our trip Elizabeth and John, the owners of the riad, were in touch with us via email and provided us with all the information we could have required before our arrival. We decided to book an airport transfer to the riad, which they organised for us, which we would strongly recommend, especially as it can be tricky finding places in the medina when you are unfamiliar with the area and it is dark!

On arrival we were taken to our room (we stayed in 'Alessia') which was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious, with a lovely touch of rose petals scattered for our arrival. We found the room very quiet throughout our stay and it had very effective air conditioning. There was also a lovely welcome letter and a map (which also had a list of very useful numbers for during our stay, including the mobile numbers of John and Elizabeth and those of trusted taxi drivers).

As we arrived late in the evening we decided to have dinner at the riad. The food was fabulous (including the best tagine we had during our stay in Marrakech) and the service fantastic. The lovely breakfast that the riad provides (Fruit, yogurt, toasted breads, preserves, pancakes/omelette, tea/coffee and the freshest orange juice) really sets you up for the day and is served on the beautiful terrace.

Prior to our visit Elizabeth booked us in at the recommended hammam, Les Bains de Marrakech, which we thoroughly recommend booking through the riad. One of us went for the 'Traditional' package which included the traditional hammam and an hour long message (which was amazing!) whilst the other had the hammam and a facial which was also superb.

John also recommended a local restaurant, La Fondouk, which was reasonably priced for the quality of the food (and we highly recommend trying the pistachio creme brulee with dark chocolate mousse!) and the atmosphere was fantastic. He also recommended 'Maison de la Photographie', a local museum which we really enjoyed.

We can not thank Elizabeth and John enough for the warm welcome and level of hospitality we received from all the staff at the riad throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. On our first day John walked us to the souks and gave us a few pointers before we set off exploring which was really beneficial and helped us get our bearings. The friendly and welcoming nature of the staff, in beautiful surroundings, combined with the owners attention to detail and local knowledge, made our stay both relaxing, stress-free and memorable.

We can not recommend Riad Elizabeth enough to friends and family, and we would definitely stay again if we visit Marrakech in the future, which I am sure we will do!

Marrakech offers a lot of choices, everything from 5 star international chains to the local phenomena known as the "Riad". These are often large elegant homes that have been converted into small hotels. Located for the most part in the ancient medina, the 1000 year old walled city that provides Marrakech its unique charm. The Riad offers the traveller the opportunity to experience the culture of this vibrant city by virtue of being a vital part of the medina itself.

There are a number of reasons for making this recommendation for the Riad Elizabeth, first and for most are the owners, John and Elizabeth are extraordinary hosts, they stop at nothing to make sure their guests are enjoying their visit. They arrange everything from airport pickups to restaurant reservations. The Riad is great, clean, excellent breakfast and a wonderful, unforgettable experience. The Marrakech choice is easy.

Riad Elizabeth is a fantastic place to stay and explore Marrakech. It's close to all the excitement of the Medina yet still a quiet enough area to enjoy a peaceful break. Mint tea in your room after dinner is no trouble!...and in general the staff were happy to help with any request. We had a great second visit and would highly recommend a visit.

Staff were excellent and helped us to find our feet in the busy city.Location was excellent ...5 minutes from the souks.The owners John and Elizabeth were lovely and even helped us to buy 2 rugs at a reasonable price.Also arranged a birthday trip to the Hammam..amazing.Only slight criticism was the breakfast not the same quality as the Riad.

Room Tip: we were in felicity which was excellent.

This review is a bit overdue, and a bit repetitive considering the comments below, but we had an absolute amazing stay. As it was our first time to Morocco, my friend and I did tons of research on riad/hotel options before finally picking Riad Elizabeth. We definitely weren't disappointed. The location is great, the rooms and decor are spotless, and the price is fair. The real gem is however the incredible staff at this Riad. There are so many we want to thank, but here are a few. We probably couldn't have survived without Dagmara, the manager, who fielded frantic calls from us at midnight when we got lost in the labyrinth that is the streets of Marrakech (Note: MEMORIZE the map that the Riad gives you. or be prepared to pay the touts. or be like us and run away from anyone offering help and pray that circling the same streets multiple times will somehow lead you to your desired destination). Ask her for help booking excursions, her favorite shops in the souks, etc. We took a tagine cooking class (HIGHLY recommended) with Bahija (the cook) and Aisha, both of whom are among the kindest people you will meet. Plus, their cooking is mouthwateringly good. Random notes: 1) we are heavy sleepers so basically ignored the call to prayer, but be warned (this is a general Middle East thing); 2) take advantage of the mint tea (sooo good); and 3) don't assume you'll just magically remember how you got from point A to point B when there are a million indistinguishable points in between. Long story short: five star at Riad Elizabeth. Looking forward to coming back (soon)!

Room Tip: The Louise room is cozy and on the ground floor. The shower design could be a tiny bit better to prevent flooding (glass partitions help some, but still an issue, though not major!).
