Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed just one night at Ryad Noura. It is tucked a way in the streets of the medina and form the outside you would not imagine that the interior would be so beautiful and stylish. We were made very welcome and with a little help from Youssef initially quite easily found our way through the seeming maze of souks. The plunge pool was particularly welcomed by the children after a hot day and we had our best shower in Morocco. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We spent 5 wonderful nights at Ryad Noura - I wanted somewhere where our children (aged 7 and 8) would feel welcome and comfortable, and where we would get an authentic taste of Marrakech. We found everything we needed and more at Ryad Noura. Just minutes away from the souks which lead down to the main square, it was a perfect location for all the main attractions, yet it was tucked away down a quiet alley, so a peaceful place to return to after a busy day's sight-seeing. We had a huge family room (Mona) with double bed and 2 singles, decorated beautifully in a simple, traditional style and kept spotlessly clean.
I can only reiterate what others have said about Youssef - he is the vital part of Ryad Noura. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with mint tea and pastries, to our sad farewell at the airport taxi, he made sure our trip was perfect. He accompanied us on our first outing into the city - at first glance it does feel like you will never find your way, but rest assured you soon become familiar with the winding streets, and we felt completely safe wherever we went - and he was organised a fantastic trip for us to the Atlas Mountains, with a berber guide and 2 mules for the children. On the one evening we decided to eat dinner at the ryad, we enjoyed the best Moroccan meal of our whole trip. The children were made to feel very welcome and they loved hanging out at the ryad - especially with Simba the cat and FBI the tortoise - and the grown-ups enjoyed chilling out up on the sunny rooftop loungers!
Our first trip to Marrakech was a magical experience, made all the more special by our wonderful host, Youssef, and our stay at the beautiful Ryad Noura.

Our first family trip to Marrakech was made so special by the amazing hospitality of Youssef in his beautiful Ryad Noura. Traditional Moroccan breakfasts on the sunny roof terrace set up our days. Highlights of our visit was the Atlas Mountain trip with lunch at Richard Branson's kasbah and the most delicious 3 course meal made by Youssef himself at his Ryad. An unforgettable trip to a fascinating city.

I recently stayed at Ryad Noura for only one night, but I really hope to come back soon....it is very cosy and chic and each single detail is so nice and very traditional....The hospitality is warm and spontaneous...Thank you to Yousef for the very early breakfast! The bathtub in the room is amazing! Maybe the surrounding area is not very nice, but I was with my friends from Marrakech....so I felt very safe! The only tip: change the quality of the towels and put a more "luxury" courtesy kit in the bathroom (and the hairdryer).

Room Tip: The room above the small pool located in the patio....has a wonderful traditional bathtub!

We stayed in the Ryad on August 2012 for 4 great nights.Youssef, its manager, welcomed us in a very pleasant way at the Sidi Ben Slimane square, the limit we could go further with the car in the medina. He showed us the way through the tiny and complicated streets, which became easier after. The first impression is that the location is not the very best, but as soon as you exercise you'll notice it is! It is not very close to the main square, but it worth it. He was all the time trying to help and showing attention to us, from getting us to the market or a place we wanted to go to dropping us at the airport in the end of the trip. Congratulations for his amazing work!

The place is very nice and beautiful, but do need some updates. When we arrived, we found problems with our room's A/C, but they kindly and immediately changed us to other room. The owner, Caryl, was also very gentle with us, indicating good restaurants and reinforcing the warm hospitality they have. They were all the time gathering efforts to make our experience the best.

The only bad thing was during the payment: they charge 3,5% extra on the invoice if you make the payment by credit cards. I've never seen that during all our 12-day-trip to Morocco. Besides, even i was absorbing this expense, the machine was not working with 5 of our credit cards, which have worked flawlessly north to south in all types of markets. Conclusion: we had to pay in cash, what was very inconvenient.

The Riad is an oasis in the middle of the market. Miriam was very nice with us, the hotel is lovely, food excellent. The only bad thing is the location, a little bit complicated to get there.

Myself and my husband stayed in the Ryad Noura. It was outstanding. Youseef who was the manager at the time made us feel so welcome. Unfortunately we were his last guests as he was moving away but the rooms were beautiful and he lit our fire in our bedroom every night. We also had two dinners cooked for us there. It was superb and fantastic value. We had a key to the door and we were allowed to put our beer etc. in the fridge. Make sure you get picked up by someone from the Riad as you will never find your way there. Don't despair as from the outside I thought "Where am I going" but once you enter it has fantastic charm and so clean. It is all windy streest to the square but you get a hang of it after getting lost a few times but it is safe. Go to the hamman, it is so worth the experience, scrubbed to an inch of your life but fab.
