“Oase of calm in heart of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Long 3 day weekend trip with family (2 kids) within the city walls of Marrakech. Worked out very well due to the great stay at the Alegria Riad. 2 spacious rooms avalailable which allow you to stay with all 4 in same room without having any feeling of it being too small. The location allows you to do almost everything by foot (avoiding headache of taxis) as it is very well located. Some trendy restaurants closeby as well altho the great food produced by the 2 nice ladies in the Riad and served by Brahim in the communal living room is an easy, quiet and convenient alternative if you want to stay inside after being out in busy Marrakech for the day. Brahim is very nice host and able to help on anything you wish for (does the guy every sleep ? :-) ). Furthermore worth pointing out the 1 hour massages that can be booked for any time during the day ! Pretty cheap and professional on top ! We would go back for sure as the balance between being in busy lively marrakech (instead of the standard hotels outside town) and the oase of calm of this Riad is just perfect combination. Pick up and return from Airport sorted by them as well. PS. the roof terrace is awesome as well !

Room Tip: From the 2 big (family) rooms they have the one on the roofterrace has advantage it is the only one...

Set in the heart of Marrakech, this Riad is probably one of the best. Close to everything and a great terrace. We stayed 3 nights and were met with a warm welcome mint-tea by Ibrahim who was on hand to offer advice and could not have been more helpful.
There is nothing that can be faulted from the smiles we saw every morning at breakfast, to our room being made up whilst we were out (including folding our clothes) and being made to feel at home. The room was extremely comfortable, the location a nice walk from the main square, and the breakfast is delicious... absolutely no complaints... a great experience, we would definitely recommend it.

We have lived in several Riads in Marrakech throughout the years, but decided to come back to Riad Alegria. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are great, the food is excellent. Riad Alegria is easy to find when you arrive from the airport, it is situated close to Jema el Fnaa and the souks and close to a guarded car park. It is very quiet at night, and the terrace on the roof is an oasis.
If you get tired of all the excotic places, you can visit the " Cosy Bar" or the very good restaurant " Tangine" just round the corner.
The manager, M. Olivier Deschamps, arranges excursions to the south of Morocco through his company Sahara Experience.

A wonderful stay in Marrakech, in a great spacious suite, 3 of us sharing, wonderful roomy bathroom and bath, shower dreamy. Was a bit further from Jma al Fna, but easy to navigate. Close to Palias Bahia and the sadinian tombs. The food was wonderful, and the dinner we had was one of the best in Morocco. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would go back. Lovely balcony too and great view of the stalks

I had purposefully wanted to stay south of the Medina near the Melah and was aware that Alegria would be a 5-10 minute walk to the place Jemaa el Fna but this shouldnt put anybody off, its a very easy uncomplicated walk.
Alegria has been beautifully and tastefully restored by Marie Christina. I stayed 2 nights at the beginning of my trip and 1 night at the end, so I enjoyed two different rooms and must say that both were a very good size, extremely comfortable and offered large bathrooms with a good water supply.

Mohamad was extremely helpful and escorted me through the labarynth of the Kasbah to Kasbah La Rotonda an Italian/Moroccan restaurant, so well hidden that a guide is essential

They arranged my pickup and drop off to the airport for euro 20 which was very efficiently done.

Definately would return.
