“Great Riad and Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

LOCATION: This riad is not close to a gate or super close to Djemaa el fna, but it is about a 15 minute walk from Bab Laksour (a gate into the medina) and 10-15 minutes from Djemaa el fna. On a main 'street' just outside derb abib Allah (the street entrance heading to the riad) is Café Arabe and a few other restaurants are only a few minutes away. There are souk-like shops just a few minutes away, closer than Djemaa el fna and the major souks. The first time you learn the route to the riad, it is super easy to find.

BEDROOM: We stayed in Suite Saphir. It is smaller than it appears in the photos. The room with two beds was difficult to regulate the air conditioner in such a small room. It was either super warm or cold. The staff is very helpful in assisting you to adjust the air conditioner though. The room is very dim, but this is typical of all riads. The décor is absolutely beautiful. There are lots of hand carvings all over, including around the door way and furniture. Very extravagant.

BATHROOM: The bathroom was very spacious. It included a toilet, shower, two sinks and a bidet. No different from many Moroccan sinks and drains, the water is slow to drain; and the(detachable) shower head is low pressure. There is lots of hot water available. They provide you with lots of fresh towels.

BREAKFAST: Breakfast is prepared fresh for you. Most of it is the same every day with bread, jams, yogurt, fresh orange juice, mint tea, coffee, sometimes egg etc.

WI-FI: Wi-Fi reception on my laptop was excellent from inside the room.

TV: A tv was available in the room but the reception was not good, so the tv was of no use. All the stations were in Arabic or French.

STAFF: When we arrived the staff sat down with us and made small talk. We thought that was nice because it made us feel like they had a genuine interest in us. They served us mint tea and biscuits. They explained the map to us, and even walked us out to help us with directions to djemaa el fna. When we wanted them to recommend a restaurant for dinner, a staff walked nearly 20 minutes plus with us so we wouldn't get lost. They even helped us with laundry arrangements. Whenever we had any issues, they resolved it. Whenever we had any questions or requests, they were there for us. They never had a negative response. It seemed they were ready to accomodate anything. The staff take great pride in their riad and their work. Our thanks to Mustapha, Ghizlan and Samira.

We recommend this riad.

Very clean beautiful decor and moustafa so helpful with everything even showing us where to eat. Breakfast taken on the terrace was the highlight every morning. We had three teenagers with us and they found everything very luxurious they shared the perle Lorient suite.

My Husband, kids and I stayed here in June. The Riad is beautiful, tranquil and all the staff were lovely. I fully recommend taking the taxi transfer organised through the Riad, as you will be highly unlikely to find it on your own, furthermore a man with a barrow / hand cart transports your luggage which is most helpful. We did see a few tourists pulling cases looking lost and fed up, you truly don't want to be that person or family!
Our room was beautiful and I would highly recommend it to families as our kids had a separate twin bedded mini room within our room. The decor was beautiful and so much attention to detail.
The roof terrace was perfect and tranquil, we ate breakfast there which was fresh and delicous, and relaxed after a long day trailing round Marrakech.
My kids liked the hot tub on the roof too. The Riad is quiet and feels far away from the hustle and bustle , but was a few minutes walk from the Souk and then on to the Main Square.
My initial reaction was that I would never find my way to and from the Riad, but we were given the best instructions and walked to the main square noting landmarks on the way by Mustapha, who was wonderful.
I loved our trip and I am so glad we stayed here. I highly recommend this Riad. We can't wait to return!

Mostapha and everyone else at Riad Reves d'Orient made for a perfect stay in Marrakech! Mostapha went above and beyond to ensure I knew exactly what was going on, and was in communication with my tour guide and taxi transport to the airport. Breakfast in the morning was filling and delicious. I even had the opportunity to have a traditional Moroccan meal cooked for me in the Riad. The rooms are beautiful and extremely clean. I stayed on the main floor and despite other people coming and going, I had no issues sleeping.

This place is the most unique and beautiful hotel i have ever stayed in,the attention to detail is incredible. It is located in a maze 10min from the main square so its really peaceful but organise an airport pick up or you will never find it. Samira was a wonderful host providing restaurant recommendations, booking trips and organising a cooking lesson in the riad kitchen. Breakfast on the roof was the best way to start the day.

A great place to stay. The staff are really friendly and Samira was a great host. It's a lovely quite Riad away from the hustle and bustle of the market. The rooms are great - we stayed in the Pierre de Lune Suite on the second floor and it was lovely. I'll be recommending it to any friends thinking of visiting Marrakech.

Room Tip: I wouldn't choose the room on the bottom floor just because it must be quiet noisy. Plus request...

This riad proved to be everything we wanted in the hectic city. Just a few minutes walk to the centre square, but in a very quiet area in the medina.
The hospitality could not be faulted, even to the extent of offering us tea or coffee with biscuits any time we were back at the riad for a rest. The breakfast was extensive and very fresh. This we enjoyed every day on the wonderful roof terrace which was comfortably furnished, providing also a great relaxing area.
Our bedroom with bathroom were quite roomy and very comfortable.
When a group of other guests became very noisy one night, Mustaffa wasted no time in quietening them - very much appreciated by other guests.
The morning of our departure was before the usual breakfast time, but he offered to provide us with this meal regardless.
Perfect hospitality and wonderful 'home' for three days!
