We arrived in the middle of the night and didn't have a chance to communicate this beforehand to our host - no problem; they just climbed out of bed and made us feel very welcome. And this held true through our entire stay (8 nights) - amazing friendly and charming service - the host (Youssuf) and his staff did everything they could to make our stay great and helped us with advice and made us tea at very odd hours.
The riad is a charming old arabic style building with 6 rooms and a central courtyard, where breakfast is served under the citrus trees full of chirping birds. Our room had a good double bed and wc and bath. That's of course the basics. But the decor! - this is the first "hotel" we've ever stayed at that actually looked like the pictures. We were instantly in love. Even little details as the bottles with shampoo and body shower were beautiful.
And breakfast was great. It varied a little from day to day, but it was delicious and filling. Be warned - BonBon (the resident cat) is a real cuddler and loooves the cream cheese from breakfast. She likes to eat it sitting in your lap.
It was our first time in Marrakech, and if we ever go back there, we're definitely staying at Riad al Nour!

Guide:
It can be a little tricky to find (as almost every address in the old part of the city). If you take the bus to Koutoubia Square just off Jemaa el-Fna Square, you just head north by the street that goes between the two big cafés/restaurants (it's called Fatima Zahra, but there's often no street signs in the bigger streets). Ignore the side roads until you come to a Y-fork - then take the left fork (still Fatima Zahra). Follow the road until it curls right around a walled-in mosque - there's a big café/restaurant on your left hand. Right after the café you turn left down a smaller road (Rue Bab Doukkala) - continue on this until you see two palm trees in the middle of the road. Stop in front of the trees and turn to your left - there is a small sign high on the wall saying "RiadAlNour" - go down this small alley right to (almost) the end - nr. 7 is Riad Al Nour.
If you take a taxi, let the driver worry about it and ask everyone in the street. That's what you pay him for. He should drop you off right at the sign in the beginning of the alley (the taxi can't fit down there). Just go down the alley yourself - you don't need a local to guide you so that you have to pay them afterwards.

Great riad in Marrakech! Thanks so much to Youssef, Younes and the whole team for a wonderful stay and for making me feel so welcome! The riad is in a great location and beautifully decorated. The airport transfers are a great price too and a very generous, filling breakfast! Love the way the riad is decorated and the tiles!

We loved our stay at Riad al Nour. Yousef and his family where so helpful and kind and it was genuinely sad to say goodbye. My husband and I only stayed here for a couple of nights but could have happily stayed here for the whole trip! It is conveniently located between the medina and the new city. The area felt safe and the riad was a welcome escape from the hussle and bustle of city life! Yousefs sister cooked us delicious food, highly recommended! Daily breakfast was tasty with great coffee and service with a smile, always lovely to wake up to. We are planning on returning here again next year and would highly recommend this lovely place for a visit. I could write an essay on how welcoming and helpful the family where as hosts. From booking our desert experience to recommending off the tourist trail eateries, this place is great :)

Yusuf and his family are amazing hosts who really took good care of me and my friends. The riad is just off a main road, but close enough to both the old and new cities. It's a lovely little setup with comfortable rooms at an affordable price. But the best part was the personalized service from Yusuf and his family. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a riad with a more personal touch.

First of all, the riad is located off a main road which led to many sights of Marrakesh. Youssef , the manager,was welcoming and provided excellent helpful tips on sightseeing, money exchange, and where to eat fabulous food at non touristy establishments. The ample and delicious breakfast served at the riad was a great start to the day. The romantic room opened up into the courtyard with the wonderful aroma of the orange trees,and the sound of the many birds that roosted there. This was a wonderful experience.
