“Beautiful Riad, Amazing Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

I was compelled to write my first Trip Advisor review because of the phenomenal service we received from Bernard and Jamal at Riad Menzeh. We arrived to the Riad and were greeted with mint tea and cookies. After we were situated, Jamal walked us to Djemaa el-Fna and oriented us to the Medina. Bernard also provided us with excellent restaurant suggestions during our stay (try the tride!). The hotel truly is a peaceful and relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The Riad is beautifully decorated and is clean and comfortable. Bernard helped us plan our itinerary for our time in Morocco, including arranging a guide for our 5-day Atlas Mountains/desert excursion (which included unique and lovely hotels and a friendly and safe driver) and purchasing our bus tickets to Essaouira on our behalf while we were traveling. Bernard also brought a henna tattoo artist to the hotel so I could get my tattoo from a reliable and extremely talented woman. One evening I had a bit of a stomach bug and Bernard had his staff prepare a plate of buttered rice for me as I couldn't go out for dinner. Talk about amazing service!
I highly recommend this hotel. From the service to the great location to the beautiful decor, you will not be disappointed!

We had an amazing stay at Riad Menzeh. Bernard and Jamal could not have been more helpful during our stay. In addition to being perfect hosts, they were literally our life savers by coming to our aid when we were lost in the maze that is the old city! They also helped us to organise a day trip to Essaouira, suggested places to eat and took their time to walk us to our destination in Marrakech.
Coming back to the Riad after the craziness of the Medina was always a pleasure with Bernard and Jamal's excellent tea and friendliness providing a more than needed recomforting feeling.
Breakfast was another higlight of the day with a special mention to the selection of jams and crepes.
The room we had was beautifully decorated and very clean.
If you are looking for a place that can immediatly feel like home then you do not need to look further as this is The place.

My in-laws just stayed and here is their experience:

"Service, food, warm hospitality was excellent. We would definitely stay again and would recommend any family and friends to stay here as well.

Bernard did an excellent job of making us welcome the very minute we walked in...from arranging the taxi to just sitting and having wonderful conversation. We appreciated his recommendation on restaurants and the sites to see.

The only drawback was not having a key to your own room when you leave. I trusted the workers and Bernard, but I would be leery of the fellow tourists. Luckily, nothing bad ever happened and we had a wonderful experience at the Riad Menzeh."

This is the most lovely traditionel riad, spotlessly clean, furnished in traditional style, entering here after the frenetic noise and bustle of Marrakesh it is an oasis of calm. Added to which is Bernard the perfect host, warm and welcoming , a mine of information on all things Moroccan without being too intrusive. It was our first visit, and something of a culture shock, but Bernard was there , recommending good restaurants, even on the first evening taking us there, getting us taxis, and one one occasion when we wished to go out of the city helping to plan the day for us,[ we are too old to go trecking.] We cannot praise him and his riad enough, it was like visiting family. One of our most interesting and fantastic holidays, thank you Bernard.

This was one of the best places i've ever stayed. Everyone was so helpful with making restaurant reservations, getting us a cab, showing us the places to go, even walking us to the restaurants at night (we were four girls). Every afternoon when we came back after a long day of touring they would have mint tea and cookies ready for us. The rooms were very nice and clean, and decorated beautifully. I would HIGHLY recommend Riad Menzeh!

A beautiful riad with all the modern trimmings set in a traditional home ( try the Haman scrub and massage), situated in the heart of Marrakech it is the definition of a oasis of calm in a wonderfully crazy city.
And Bernard is the host of Marrakech, he showed us all we needed to know on how to get about and survive without taking the fun of exploring out of it. He made us feel at home, made excellent recommendations that helped us enjoy our stay, by far the best place on our Ten day tour.

We had a way too short but delightful break here. It is a lovely, traditional Morrocan house, spotlessly clean, simply but beautifully furnished and very comfortable. It is a 10 minute (longer if it's 42 degrees out as it was this week!) walk to the square, but easy to find and through a really interesting part of the town.
Bernard has certainly found his forte and appears to love helping & chatting to his guests. And he was so sweet, worrying about my palid English skin getting burnt.
I find it hard to believe that you'll find a better place to stay in Marrakech...
