“Lovely hotel in the heart of the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

This a really lovely hotel right in the heart of the Medina, close to the souks and the main square. It is light, cool and airy, with charming rooms organised around a central courtyard and a peaceful roof terrace overlooking the city. The staff are really attentive and helpful. The breakfast is good. Dinner is available too, but you have to book in advance.

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs are cooler, but darker, whereas the top floor is warmer but brighter.

My wife and I chose to come to Riad Lorsya because of the proximity to the souks and the square. Abdul and his staff were fantastic. He was very helpful figuring out prearranged tours. The Riad was beautiful and a great place to begin our discovery of Marrakech. They were flexible on the breakfast to accommodate our tours. We would definitely return to Riad Lorsya. Thank you for helping us have a memorable vacation.

We spent for nights at this riad and I have to say it was an amazing experience. it's close to where everything happens but yet quiet and the atmosphere is very romantic. Having breakfast on the roof with beautiful views of the city was amazing. The food was great, the service, the cleanliness and the rooms, all together made our stay very special.

To experience the true Marakech Medina one must travel down narrow alleyways to a secluded Riad with all the hidden beauty behind well locked doors. Riad Lorsya takes some navigating ( or escorting) to find and does make it a real adventure coming and going but Abdul (by day) and Mustafa (by night) were so friendly and helpful it was well worth the navigational challenge. The decor was colourful and stylish, the rooms narrow but comfortable and there were plenty of couches, tables and seats both inside and outside up on the roof terrace to research dinner, shopping and sights from the abundance of supplied guide books, magazines and advice from fellow travellers. The breakfasts are fantastic with a different combination of bread, fruit, eggs each morning and if you want to eat in you can enjoy a tagine and moroccan salads ( like chunky dips). The terrace is the best feature with lovely views over the Atlas mountains in the distance and ragged rooftops that catch the glow of dusk and the setting sun. Bring a bottle of wine or champagne (from home or previous country) if you like a drink and store in the Riad fridge and enjoy on the rooftop at sunset as there are only 2 places you can have alcohol in the old town. One is Cafe Arabe, conveniently cloe which serves great cocktails and reasonable meals, the other is Hotel Tazi down in the Jeema el F'na but a bit dodgy. Also hard to find snacks so bring or buy nuts in the square. Abdul is very helpful for organising train tickets, taxis or guides, although our guide at 50 Euro for four hours seemed v expensive and was not that friendly. Abdul will supply a good map and bus card that shows how to get to and from the Riad to the square and surrounds. A word of warning: chances are if you book an airport pickup you will need to find your driver amongst dozens of men holding up Riad name signs at the exit then you will enjoy a short drive to the outskirts of the medina where your luggage will be unloaded into an old cart manned by an even older man who will run off through the narrow streets and you simply must stay close and follow until you arrive at the Riad door. You will need to pay 20 Dhirams to the cart man - all this was unexpected for us arriving late at night! Overall a great Riad experience with super friendly staff and as long as you are a good navigator, a great place to stay!

We stayed at Riad Lorsya for a long weekend in March and found it to be the perfect setting for our trip. The staff are friendly and incredibly helpful and the accommodation is beautifully decorated, clean and calm. Roof terrace is great and the Raid serves a very good breakfast and evening meal if you want it. The location is very close to the main square, quite hard to locate down winding alleyways but once we had found our way it was a great location from which to explore Marrakech. the local people are friendly and will help out if you get lost. Good value for money.

The riad is OK but a little basic. The riad location is terrible. It is in the middle of dank smelly small narrow alleyways. Leaving the riad and coming back was a struggle as you need compass. the food on the riad was basic but fine. friendly staff. the shower was faulty as was the toilet cistern.

Room Tip: Try another riad, lol

Riad is placed a short walk from the main square, so position is great.
Decor inside is wonderful, roof terrace is great.
Rooms were clean and comfortable, management were really helpful, organised everything we needed.
I would recommend this to anyone
