“Perfect riad in the heart of the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just spent 3 perfect days at Riad Argan. The location is perfect-- a short stroll to the main square, the souks or the kasbah. Francoise, the owner could not possibly have been any more gracious or helpful... the riad itself is everything you'd want.. cosy, inviting with a well-decorated touch that makes it hard to leave ... fab breakfasts on the terrace... and be sure to have a romantic dinner there... the three sisters and Sufjan(sp?) on staff are great-- friendly and super nice...always looking to make your stay enjoyable ... all in all, I highly recommend Riad Argan!

Couldn't ask for more the Riad argan is simply Devine and well located for the square. The owners provide a service second to none and even located a chemist late in the day to go and fetch medicine I needed. Totally brilliant

We had the most amazing stay at the Riad Argan. Francoise and Bernard and their staff are outstanding. If you stay here you really MUST eat at least one meal there - we were in Marrakech for 4 days and ate a meal there three times - the food was exquisite. The rooms were immaculately clean. There was limited space around the bed - but that wasn't a problem to us- if you are used to the large American hotel rooms it may surprise you though. The staff were very helpful, flexible and served unobtrusively. It was reassuring to have Francoise meet us in the near by car park ( with the pre arranged taxi transfer) . The location is excellent - about a 5 - 10 min walk to the main square and only 1 minutes walk to the nearest 'shops/traders.' The bed was comfortable and they had a safe with a key - so we could safely leave our passports and money in the rooms. I would highly recommend this accommodation - If we return to Marrakech I will definitely book in here again.

We stayed at the riad for 4 nights over the Easter weekend and it was fantastic. Francoise & her staff went above & beyond to ensure that our stay in Marrakech was unforgettable. The rooms are beautiful, breakfast is delicious & most significantly, everyone at the riad is incredibly helpful & friendly. We highly recommend this riad for its great location, great accommodation & fantastic host & staff!

The most outstanding feature of this Riad is the superb service. There were some minor issues with the airport pickup that were quickly resolved by our host Francoise. On arrival, Francoise gave us some very useful tips about the best places to go, prices to pay for taxis and were even given a personal guided tour in to the heart of the madina. She further helped with advice on tours to take out of the city and even introduced us to a local agent to make the bookings.The breakfast was excellent and the service efficient and courteous at all times. The room was very comfortable, with an excellent shower and all the mod cons of a hotel. The roof terrace has great views of the mountains and is a relaxing place to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink. We particulary liked the small gazebo area featuring a comfortable seating area. All of the staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way at all times to make our stay as pleasant as possible. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Marrakech then look no further than ariad argan! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All of the rooms seemed to be of a high standard. As the Riad is away from the main roads there is v...

We arranged a taxi from the airport through Francoise at the riad and she met us at the car park to walk us through the small streets to the riad. We were given mint tea on our arrival and Francoise provided us with a map and highlighted places of interest and what we should expect to pay. We were taken to our room and freshened up before Francoise took us to the bureau de change and to the main square, pointing out landmarks and recommended restaurants on the way. We ate at the roof terrace that evening at the riad and the food was fantastic. Wine and beer is available to buy with your meal. Francoise organised a hammam for us which was a brilliant experience leaving us with very soft skin. She also organised a day's cookery course for us with Fatima which was fantastic, a most enjoyable and insightful day. On our last evening we again ate at the riad as we had enjoyed the meal there so much. We could not fault the hospitality shown to us and would not hesitate in recommending this very central riad.
