Ok, so the surprise to this Riad is the long walk through the labyrinth of Marrakeches alleyways. You finally reach a rather scruffy dead end, feel almost dissappointed if not worried, you go in through a little door and suddenly, hey presto you are in a little palace. Beautifully designed, roof terrace, small dipping pool, hammam, courtyard, everything and more you would expect of your Marrakech Riad. Rooms again beautifully designed. Wi Fi. Great traditional Maroccan breakfasts. Excellent staff - friendly personal atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this to all. You won't be dissappointed.

We have been made extremely welcome by Adil, Patrice and Abdul and cannot recommend this Riad highly enough. Everything is excellent!

A real oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle.

Just one tip - book an airport transfer to get you there - you will never find it without assistance the first time.

There are many Riads in Marrakech, and they aren't all that dissimilar. What sets this one apart is the location, tucked far back in the quiet residential streets of the medina, and the food. Our meal here was amongst the best we had in the country, and certainly in Marrakech. If you stay here, brush up on your French, as English is a challenge. But you should dust off your French anyways if going to Morocco.

Room Tip: Do not close the large wooden doors to your room when leaving for the night, as this is a sign you have gone to sleep. You will be locked out of the Riad. It is customary for the keepers of the Riad to close the large outer doors to your room once they have noticed you've turned in for the evening.

We spent a magical week in Marrakech walking every day in the Medina getting a feel for the place and people. Both were above and beyond expectations as was the riad. Patrice and his staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful, the breakfasts were varied and tasty and the riad was SO pretty. I was particularly taken with the tadelakt walls, the elaborate decoration and the location in among the back streets near the Dar el Bacha palace. The riad is very handy for the souks, the square and the jardins Majorelle. Patrice was on hand to give us advice about the best daytrips, where to get more money (you will always want to spend more than you thought) and the price you should expect to pay for things. We have no hesitation about giving Ambre et Epices top marks.

We spent five days in Marrakesh and in the Riad Ambre & Epices and we were absolutely delighted to have found this beautiful place and absolute oasis of peace in the middle of the medina. Coming back from a fascination but also noisy and chaotic day in Marrakesh, opening the massive wooden door and stepping into the cool and calm inyard with its little pool, the lounge chairs, quiet music and beautiful decoration was really like entering a different world. And after having had a traditional peppermint tea with some cookies, a chat with the super nice owner of the Riad and just some quiet moments we were refreshed and ready for the next adventure. The Riad is extremely beautiful - a traditional Moroccan house, nicely decorated and with everything you need for a relaxing and nice vacation - and the breakfast is just amazing. Everyday we had a little variation of sweets, fruit salad, bread - and what could be a better way to start your day than sitting on the roof top terrace in the shade and having a freshly squeezed orange juice while going over the possible plans for the day? All this beauty was absolutely perfected by the warm and extremely welcoming service we could enjoy during our stay. We always got good advice for nice places to eat, a perfect goal for a day trip or just had a little chat about the day. Finally I can only say: Travelers going to Marrakesh should absolutely not miss this place!
