“Fantastic girly weekend at Riad Linda!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

I am a little late leaving this review but anyway, we had 3 fantastic nights at Riad Linda at the end of May (myself and 3 girlfriends) and can highly recommend staying here if, like us you wish to be central to everything and have a real Moroccan experience. The Riad is great for a group as you can also book the whole Riad if enough of you.
It was the first time visiting for all of us and we were made to feel very welcome by Rachid, Wadeer and Fatila (not sure if names are spelt correctly...). All our rooms were great, breakfast was lovely each morning on the sun terrace and it was wonderful lounging on the sofas with a nightcap after a busy evening out and about. (We did get some drinks from the supermarket and were able to store in the fridge which was fab)
Linda provided some really useful information prior to travelling and was more than willing to answer any questions. I would definitely book the airport pick up as there is no way on earth we would have found it on our own!!
We did have the best of both worlds while we were there as we did get away from the chaos of the square during the day by visiting the amazing La Mamounia hotel to laze by the pool. I think it cost around £120 each for a day pass which included the most amazing lunch and afternoon tea. It is definitely worth splashing out if you can.
We also spent a day at Beldi country club which was also a beautiful place, and day passes can be bought with or without lunch. It was about 20 mins outside of the centre but was also well worth it and much cheaper.
We all loved Marrakesh and would happily stay at Riad Linda if we return.
Thanks everyone for your hospitality, look forward to seeing you again soon!!

Room Tip: A room upstairs is probably quieter but we had rooms on both floors and were all happy.

My trip to Marrakech was at the beginning of June. I went there and surprised my friend who was a guest there. Linda made sure my friend did not know I was coming and her staff, Rasheed, Wadii, & Fahdillia (not sure if I spelled their names correctly) also kept the secret. Wadii collected me off the taxi and off we went. The Riad is located down small alleys but close to the Souks. It is a beautiful brightly colored place. We stayed in the Orange Room which was plenty big enough. The staff made sure we were comfortable and basically let us do our thing. When I left I was concerned for my friend as she uses a wheelchair when she needs to but Wadii whisked her off each day for tours, shopping and meals. Thank you all for taking good care of her! Breakfast was served each day and was delicious! I am so glad that she chose your Riad to stay in!

Room Tip: This isn't a room tip but be careful of the "monkey" guys. They will take your money...

Thank you to all at Riad Linda who made our trip to Marrakech such a great experience. We stayed in The Douiria which was very spacious and very clean and comfortable.
From making the booking with Linda, who offered such good advice and tips, from arriving to Jemaa el fna to be met with the very helpful Wadeer, meeting Racheed , who assisted with any request we had, and Fatila who cooked a lovely breakfast every morning and who makes a mean lemon chicken! Not really any more we could have asked for.
We would have no hesitation to recommending this delightful, homely Riad!

Room Tip: Would recommend the Douiria - well worth the little extra

Easy to find - right in the heart of the Medina - staying at the fabulous Riad Linda gives you a great base to explore the city.
It was 48 degrees C when we stayed - the Air Con in our room was brilliant!
Staff were great - very helpful - and provided a lovely breakfast.
A real flavour of Morocco - I've got no hesitation in recommending this little hidden gem to you.

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this beautiful riad. Only a few minutes walk away from the action, but such peace & quiet here. the sun was shining & all the staff made us feel so welcome & were always helpful & polite with a great sense of humour! The rooms were very clean, comfortable & most importantly cool. The air conditioning here works a treat, very important when you visit here during the summer months. we didn't do very much, lots of lounging about & relaxing & enjoying the cool terrace in the evenings. - a wee gem! Thank you all at Riad Linda

This was my first trip to marrakech & I was feeling a bit nervous & did not know what to expect. Rachid, wadii & fadila could not have been kinder or more welcoming. they made me a very refreshing glass of mint tea & i was made to feel very welcome. The riad is in a small derb just a few minutes walk away from the souks & the location is ideal. I could not believe how peaceful it was when I turned into the little derb. It was so lovely to be woken by bird song each morning. I also highly recommend the breakfasts on the lovely terrace each morning. The staff were alwys smiling & always made sure that iIwas happy & comfortable. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Blue Room on the first floor which was light, airy & cool.

Riad Linda is a sanctuary amid the chaos of Marrakesh. Linda is a delightful host and her personality is reflected in the calm atmosphere of her riad, tucked away in a quiet corner just a few minutes walk from the main square. The house is in an ideal location and is excellent value for money. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, we stayed in the Douria Suite which is very spacious. Rachid and staff were very pleasant and helpful and a resident wee bird fills the atrium with his beautiful songs. I was unwell during our visit and was very fortunate to have been staying in such a comfortable and welcoming house. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.
