Thank you to Abdula, Mustafa and all the staff at the Riad Lorsya - we had an amazing Holiday. This was our first trip and we loved the place, people, weather,food everything about our trip exceeded our expectations.

A special thank you to all at the Lorsya for looking after me and my dietary requests. We stayed in the Samsara Suite which was great - lovely hot shower, relaxing the whole experience felt like a home from home.

Right in the heat of the souks lies the most welcoming retreat you could hope to stay in. Our host, Abdul, could not do enough for us. We stayed in Suite Samsara which really was amazing. Great decor. We had the tagine avec legumes on the first night and tucked into the hearty, fresh breakfast. Got well lost on the first evening as it really is tucked away!

Stayed here for a few nights, it's a good Riad, nice decoration, good condition and near the central square. The service is excellent, very friendly and always available to help.
There are a few negatives tho, the room isn't cleaned that often, it had some dust and hairs that were not cleaned, the sheets on the bed are quite old and should be replaced.
They suggested a day trip to the Atlas which was ok enough but nothing special and other people bought the same trip on the streets for almost half the price.
Finally, the there is a problem with the location, you have to go through a maze of tight alleys until you reach the Riad, even after 2 days staying there i still had some doubts about the right path.
Note: there is no TV in the rooms or the Riad, this was ok for us tho.

Riad Lorsya is quite a little gem tucked away as it is in the alleyways of the Medina. It is ideally positioned for getting to the souks and the main square and all they have to offer. Similarly, it is an easy walk to many of the local sites of interest and a number of restaurants. Most importantly, you feel safe when you walk back down the alleyways to the Riad in the dead of night.

The staff are what make Riad Lorsya what it is. They are very friendly and will do anything to make your stay comfortable, hassle free, interesting and enjoyable. In essence, nothing is too much trouble, they will even escort you to various venues so that you do not get lost etc. A great crew and the owners should be very proud of their greatest asset - the staff.

As for the Riad, "shabby chic" is the kindest way to describe it, but regardless, it is a great experience. The breakfast is very good for this part of the world and the optional dinner is really very good value and better than most of the local restaurants.

Went in Jan 2012, stunning Riad best by far in Marrakech, staff couldn't do enough for you so helpful super friendly.

Book a suite the normal rooms nice but the suites gorgeous, wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech thats for sure

One tip though if going to the Souks don't tell the stall holders that you stay at the Lorsya when they ask where you are staying as the price rockets

Room Tip: All rooms amazing but suites extra special

We stayed here for 4 nights and were incredibly impressed. The Riad is well located about 5 mins walk from the main square. I would definitely recommend organising a transfer with the Riad as it is not accessible by car. They will organise a car to collect you form the airport and bring you to a point 5 min walk from the Riad. A porter will meet you to carry your luggage. It is a bit daunting the first time you do this walk but you very soon remember the main routes.

From the minute you arrive the service is excellent. Mustafa and Abdul looked after us incredibly well. Nothing was too much trouble and they organised everything we needed. The complimentary dinner on the first night was absolutely delicious! It was my birthday when we were there and Abdul helped my wife organise a delicious surprise cake. Special mention must be made of the breakfasts! They are fantastic and will tide you over until at least mid afternoon! The ladies who do the cooking are really friendly and do a great job, making the breakfasts a little different each day for variety. They will also provide a cooking lesson for a modest charge.

In terms of accommodation the Riad is comfortable. Our suite was quite dark but from experience this is not unusual for Riads. The facilities in the room are good though you need to accept that it is a Riad and not what you'd get in a 4 star European hotel.There was an AC unit in the room that does an effective job of providing heating when needed.

In summary I would totally recommend this Riad for the great service, delicious food and wonderful service! A big thank you to Abdul and the team!

Room Tip: I did not see the regular rooms but I think they may have more light than the suites. I would avoid...
