“Nothing to add to the other reviews really!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Lovely little place, lovely rooms, lovely staff. And pretty affordable too. Could not recommend more highly.
The guys really couldn't do enough for us, and the recommendation to visit the Photography Museum was a great one!

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at this Riad while in Marrakech, it was my first time in a Medina so as i was walking through the tiny narrow streets i wasn't too sure what to expect but as soon as i walked in to the Riad it was extremely serene and peaceful.

The rooms were very clean, well maintained and looked after but best of all were the extremely warm and friendly staff who were willing to go to the end's of the Earth to fulfil our needs!

We stayed at Riad Menzeh for 2 nights over 2 separate stays. The team at the riad were particularly helpful even before we had arrived, organising our airport pick ups, dinners on arrival, next day transfers to Ouarzazate and pick ups a week later. The service was efficient and friendly before we had even arrived and this did not disappoint during both our stays.
We stayed in the upstairs room which suited us as it was on the upper terrace and away from the main rooms. The room was of a decent size and the bed is comfortable and you can either use the air-conditioning or sleep with the windows open like we did. The bathroom is sufficient with plenty of hot water available to enjoy a shower. Though not overly luxurious it is perfectly comfortable and clean, and provided us with a good nights sleep on both occasions.
Breakfast is a really tasty spread, very filling, with traditional Moroccan style pancakes, bread, jams and orange juice and coffee. We asked them to cook some fried eggs and it wasn't a problem.
We had a dinner and lunch during our time at the Riad and both were exceptional. Dinner was one of the best tagines we had ever eaten with tender lamb that just melted in your mouth. Served with a chilled bottle of wine in the gorgeous courtyard with great service it was a meal to remember. We enjoyed some lunch on our last day, another tasty tagine, with a super fresh tuna, cucumber & potato salad and fresh strawberries to finish off with. We had arrived back one day with a selection of olives, oysters and crackers, which the guys were happy to plate up for us and serve to us up on the roof terrace along with a bottle of chilled wine which really made our day.
The hammam and massage is definitely worth a go. A really great experience, private and comfortable, we felt scrubbed clean and very relaxed after a massage to finish off our holiday.
The riad isn't in the heart of the medina, but is an easy 15 minute walk to Jemaa el Fna.
The staff are what make this riad so special, they were all so willing to help and nothing was too much bother.

We have just come back from Marrakech where my husband, two children and I spent two nights at Riad Menzeh.
The Riad is small (only 5 rooms) and located just a short walk to the main square. The staff are incredibly warm, nice and helpful. Jamal was always ready to help and answers any questions. The rooms are small but very clean and with character. Breakfast was great and varied and we loved coming back to mint tea and Moroccan biscuits at the end of a long day out. I can only recommend this lovely place and commend its staff/management. A pleasure to have met them!

I stayed at the Riad Menzeh when visiting Marrakech early in April and just had to write and say how much I enjoyed staying here. It's in the heart of the old Medina in Marrakech, so most of the sites in the old town are within walking distance. Clean and comfortable, Riad Menzeh is a nice, calm place to come back to and unwind a bit after the hustle and bustle of the medina. And I have to single out the staff: Jamal and Yassin helped us in so many ways small and large, really making us feel at home. I heartily recommend staying here.

We had a simply lovely stay at the Riad Menzeh! Starting with the warm reception as we arrived from a 9 hour car ride by Jamal and Yassin (Bernard was out of town) walking us back to the Riad, to the gracious teas, their personal attention to our needs, and questions it was everything we could ask for and more. Riad Menzeh is a lovely little oasis of calm in the middle of the medina, and we nd our young children really enjoyed it. Little touches like the guide books to read in the cozy sitting area, with a cup of Moroccan tea and fresh bake Moroccan treats also made it a refreshing spot to get back to after a packed day in the Medina. Thanks also to all the reviewers who recommended it - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Menzeh, and the warmth and helpfulness of Jamal, Mercin, Yessin and the rest of the staff.

Thank you thank you thank you. Simply put: this was one of the best places we have ever been to in every way. Let me explain why. From beginning to end Jamal, Jassim and Bernard have delivered more then we would have ever expected. From the uncomplicated booking, to arranging transport, picking us up, welcome us and makes us feel home to cooking explaining the city and culture through to helping us with finding a Hamman. No wishes were left unfulfilled.

The hotel itself is a beautiful original style riad wich had the comfort and space of the fotos. Made with original materials in a original but most spacious and comfortable style we been very happy to have stayed here. The location is just outside the tourist bit and will give you the chance to have a true feeling of the actual people from Marrakesh and their lifestyle. Still it's just a 10 -15 min walk to the big market square. Amazing to come from the very lively and buzzing streets of Marrakesh into the quiet and calm oasis of riad menzeh perfect to relax and rest after a day full of impressions.

The food in riad menzeh was also very delicious. Every day we had a different breakfast although please keep in mind that you are in a different part of the world. Enjoy original food and don't expect an English breakfast! Buns Marmelade pancakes fruits case and one of the best coffee I had.

Our room was on the rooftop and although not the largest absolutely fine for this price. The decor was very nice and the bathroom big enough to fit two relatively big persons.

The riad was very clean and had many places to relax without necessarily sharing an area with other guests. The rooftop terrace was beautiful to get the last sunlight of the day and listen to the birds before having a well deserved sleep.

Overall one of the best holidays I had thanks to Jamal, Jassim and Bernard.

We will definitely stay there again and can highly recommend the Riad Menzeh.
