Riad Moullaoud

Reviewed September 18, 2013

The riad is located at the less known end of the souk, so when you are outside it looks like anotherhouse in the street with a nice door but once inside you get the feel of the riad experience. Small litlle rooms connected by stairs and small hallways, with small intimate saloons with very inviting chairs and sofa's, add some very small pools and you have a good feeling what it's all about. During my stay of three nights I've managed to find four ways to enter the roof terrace, the place to be after a long day in the souk or the nearby touristical sites. Unfortunately they are closing the small pool on the terrace but there is still the jacuzzi to embrace.
My room was clean and not that big, but with the salons everywhere you're not spending that much time in your room. I didn't had any daylight coming in, but it didn't matter at all.
The staff is very friendly and accomodating, the spa infrastructure is nice, and prices are not that much higher than the hammams around the town.
Breakfast is outstanding and quite local, don't expect a wide variety but it get's your day started, and if that doesn't work, drink a cup of coffee and it will.
Nearby is the restaurant "le fundouk" which is actually one of the best places to enjoy the Moroccan food at his best, while sipping on a cocktail and atsting of the rather good local wine.
Nice stay and recommandable.

Room Tip: There are rooftop rooms, but the experience is enhanced if you take one of the other rooms, mine was...

We had a very pleasant stay in Riad Moullaoud in late June. The interior is an oasis from the chaos outside and such a lovely building to walk into. The rooms are okay with the main issue being that the bathrooms are not seperate. There is a half wall to seperate but no door. The rooftop pools are small but lovely. The breakfast was really good as well with plenty of food being served. Would definitly stay at Riad Moullaoud again.

I stayed here with my partner in July 2013 - it was one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed.

We stayed in the suite (next to the reception) it was set on 3 levels and was beautiful! The roof terrace has several little plunge pools and sun loungers dotted all around...when we were up on the rood, it felt like we were a million miles away from earth, it was so peaceful and tranquil.

The riad is about a 10 minute walk from the square, if you look like you dont know where you are going, the young boys on the street will take advantage of this and you'll end up paying out for someone to show you the long way, try and find your bearings as soon as you get there.

Room Tip: The suite on the ground floor next to the Reception is 100% worth the extra cost.

Riad Moullaoud is located in the middle of the Medina, in old town Marrakesh and is a silent oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is the Medina. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, this was shown more than ever when my purse and camera was stolen and they drove us and came with to help translate at the police station not only once, but twice without us even having to ask.
The view from the rooftop terrace is amazing and both the breakfast and the rest of the food served is wonderful! The pools are a bit small, but fortunately it's four of them so it's not a problem.
I don't think anyone would regret staying here, so I would recomend everyone to try this amazing hotel in the middle of fantastic Marrakesh!

Riad Moullouad was, in my opinion, the perfect place in which to pop my Moroccan cherry.

With a late flight into the city airport the Riad arranged a no hassle transfer which was ready and waiting to whisk our bags and ourselves the 20 minute drive into the city.

Throughout our stay the guys in the Riad were nothing but friendly and helpful. No matter what our query was, it was never any bother or hassle for them. Always extending the warm Moroccan welcome, taking an interest in our days activities and sharing their infinite wisdom to help us plan the next days adventures.

Location-wise the Riad is located a slightly confusing(first time) but easily memorable ten minute walk into the Main Square.

We stayed here for three nights, this is really a hidden treasure, there is no where like it there is complete privacy around every corner, the decor is fantastic, amazing staff amazing food, the rooms are quiet small but be decor takes your breath away, I mean some thought has gone into this Riad, that's for sure its a complete mixture of Moroccan & Indian it is just lovely
The food is lovely but the set dinner the first night we arrived was so fantastic I don't recall ever tasting anything so lovely indeed, it's a must have at least one evening meal here, you owe it to yourself to taste the tangible here at the Riad, I can't fault the staff they are excellent. Enjoy this Riad to the full, ill be back that's for sure and I most defiantly will be eating there again. Also ensure you ask the staff to arrange taxis for you, and right opposite the riad is a dressmaker who will make fab dresses for you or very cheap indeed.
