“Couldn't have picked a better place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at Riad Diana for 3 nights and have to say that it was the best place we stayed on our trip to Spain and Morocco. We chose to have them pick us up at the airport with the service they offered since we'd never been to Morocco before, which was a smart idea because it was so easy to get from the airport to Riad Diana without any taxi drivers high-balling because they knew we were American tourists.

Then we were greeted by Boujemaa at the riad and he gave us DELICIOUS mint tea and was so kind and patient with our questions, all while we sat in the most peaceful riad setting ever. Then he took us to our terrace room which was AMAZING. It was so much more than we ever expected, especially because the price was so reasonable! The view from our terrace room was great and there were lounge chairs and a rooftop deck to boot!

Boujemaa gave us a map and showed us all the places we would want to see and was just so kind and genuine throughout the whole experience. He and the rest of the Riad Diana staff are incredible people.

Location: The riad is in a fantastic location, very central to the dJemaa el-fna which is where all the action is, but is off on a street that is very quiet so you don't get all the noise. It's down a side street from the djemma el fna that is so great because the store keepers seem so much nicer, genuine and don't hassle you as much.

I'm SO glad that all the reviews I read on tripadvisor were 100% right about Riad Diana. It made our Marrakech experience incredible, especially when you so look forward to going back to your Riad and sitting in silence and peace, away from all the craziness in the medina.

Room Tip: we didn't see the other rooms, but our terrace room is the only one they have and it was AMAZING...

Stayed here with our teenage daughter, we all loved it. Easy to access the places of interest, the palaces, the souks, taxis, restaurants & the square are all within easy walking distance. We went in August, it was even hotter than usual, 44 or 45 degrees every day, which is a bit too hot to go out in the afternoons. The Riad has a plunge pool which was lovely to cool down in in this weather. The roof terrace is lovely for sunbathing, and has a good view of the roofs of the Medina, you can also have candle lit dinners here. The food is excellent, and you can have cooking lessons here too. The staff are very helpful, and will arrange day trips to the mountains or other places if you wish. It's worth getting the Riad to send a taxi for you, although it is easy to find once you have been there, it's a little tricky to find at first, as are all the Riads in the Medina, as taxis can not go all the way down the allies. A man with a barrow will take your luggage to the Riad, so you don't get lost. We will definitely be back, when its cooler. We stayed in the Riad Diana for 4 days, and went to Les Maison Des Oliviers, which is 10 minutes outside the centre, for a relax by the pool, for a couple of days, which was a perfect combination. Marrekech is definitely a place not to miss.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed excellent, the upstairs rooms were very peaceful, but the one on the ground flo...

We were warmly welcomed into Riad Diana following a pre-arranged taxi from the airport. A short walk into the narrow streets (inaccessible for cars) with a trolley pulling porter for our baggage brought us to the riad.The rooms were beautifully decorated and kept superbly clean and airconned. The plunge pool was greatly appreciated and the views form the top were excellent.A short walk (5 mins) took us into the main square. A 22€ 1 hr massage in the riad is very recommended and was arranged at short notice. A request for cold tonic (bring your own Gin as Ramadan was in full flow!) was quickly accommodated via the manager.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms were lovely. There was a separate room on the roof terrace which looked appealing fo...

My friend and I have just returned from a 5 night stay in this lovely little riad only a few minutes walk from the main square. Couldn't have asked for more- fantastic, attentive service, both prior to our arrival via email and throughout visit. Clean and friendly with delicious home cooked meals, heavenly hamman/massage and convenient location. Arranged airport transfers and staff went out of their way to ensure a comfortable, relaxing visit. Excellent value for money, highly recommended.

We started our summer trip with a superb 2 night stay here. This is suitable for a romantic getaway but will also suit families. It offers sound value for money and is well located for the medina. If you can, ask for the roof top room as it allows for enjoyment of the terrace. We did a cookery lesson and hamman massage both of which are recommended. The breakfast is simple but filling and all the staff are friendly and ameniable. If I was in town again I would stay here.

PS Please feed the kittens who live outside.

Great traditional Riad. Close to Jamaa el-Fnaa and in a quiet side street just away from the buzz of the city. Staff couldn't do enough for us and spoke very good English. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Would recommend!

Although we only stayed for one night the staff at the Riad were outstanding. They not only went above any expectation we could have possibly had but made our visit to Morocco start off right. We arrived somewhat late in the evening but were still greeted by the owner and our room was top quality- air conditioning, complimentary bottled water, map of the area with highlighted information, all amazing especially as I hadn't properly had time to research places to go prior to our visit due to exam-stress. Our stay was certainly stress removing which made it all the better

Room Tip: The terrace room is wonderful for an added feeling of remoteness and makes the evening time enjoyabl...
