staued there recently with my 2 daughters and my husband. Everyonr had a fantastic time. there really is something there for everyone. My daughters explored the souks whilst my husband and i enjoyed all the sigtes. This riad has a fantastic location. we were very central which made it asy for us to come back during the day for a reast before venturing out again. Lovely staff, couldn't do enough for us. Will all want to come back again soon. Will be telling all our friends

This is a very pretty, quiet riad in the heart of the Medina, tucked away at the end of a winding street leading off the bustling Derb Dabachi. We were in a group of nine, made up of two families and we took over the whole building. All bedrooms had an ensuite bathroom and breakfast was freshly prepared for us each morning, so the facilities were very good. There is also a lovely roof terrace where you can sunbathe or have a quiet drink. We'd booked our trip for August without any consideration for the heat, so it was great that the riad was so close to the souks and the Jemaa El Fna, as we could spend the mornings and evenings exploring and haggling and still stagger back each afternoon for a siesta and a bit of a cool down. We all enjoyed staying here very much and we would definitely come again.

i travelled to Morocco recently with my husband. It was our very first trip and we felt quite vervous. We needn't have worried at all as the staff at Riad Linda were incredibly lind and looked after us so well. We soon relaxed and were able to take in all the sites, sounds and smells that make Marrakech such a special place. Our favourite trip was to the Marjorelle gardens. we got there fairly early and we had the place pratically to ourselves. The riad was a very welcome place to return to at the end of each day & relax on the roof terrace. we had dinner there on night & thoroughly enjoyed fadila's chicken with olives and preserved lemons. can't wait to go back.

Don't be put off by the winding walk along the narrow street to finally arrive at this Riad. Once there, you will find superb and spacious rooms, excellent staff and courteous service. The Riad has a superb relaxing roof terrace and very welcome air-con in the bedrooms. The route to and from the Riad becomes suprisingly easy to navigate and you are on the doorstep of the main suqare and activities yet just far enough away to find the tranquility of calm on the roof tarrace area. Superb location and I woudl certainly have no hesitation in using this Riad again.

Riad Linda is about 5 minutes walk from the main square of Marrakech . There are other Riads in the same area which so there are normally other tourists around.. The local owners have put lots of large plant pots in the streets and keep the streets clean and tidy.

The riad is newly renovated and has been furnished in a traditional style. The accommodation is spacious and colourful. The roof terrace is excellent and has good views all round, on winters days you can see the Atlas Mountains .

The concierge, Sayed, is very helpful and speaks some English. He can point you in the right direction for local points of interest. If you need anything more complicated, as I did, he has a local contact, Rachid, who speaks excellent English and was very helpful.

I would highly recommend Riad Linda for a break in Marrakech

We had a great stay here at Riad Linda in October 2009. The Riad is very well situated at the end of a traditional narrow street just a few minutes from the main square: Place Jemaa El Fna. We took a petit taxi from the airport and then a porter took our bags on his trolley to the Riad. The Riad is in the heart of the Medina (old town) which is not accessible by cars, but is full of intriguing shops and stalls as well as people bikes and carts. We were also very impressed by how clean the whole town is. A great place for practising your school french, but most people also speak good English.
There is a real buzz to the place. We didn't do any of the out of town excursions available, we'd come to rest. Having said that we visited a Hamman, for a steam bath and massage, took a trip in a Caleche... a fabulous horse drawn carriage, and spent hours wandering, drinking the beautiful fresh orange juice and people watching from the cafes. We found some lovely carpets and fabrics as well as ceramics in the shops too.
The restaurants are all good, local Morrocan food is tasty and inexpensive. If you want to go back to the west for a while, then go to the new town up Avenue Mohammmed V, you'll find restaurants and shops just like at home. The Medina though is full of life and you can haggle and bargain to your hearts content in the tiny shops and narrow streets. Remember to set a price in advance though if you go by carriage or taxi, and just smile, people smile back!
The Riad itself is clean, fresh and very comfortable, we felt very safe and secure. You can buy everything you need in the shops round about and the concierge will help if you need it. The bedrooms are a good size and beautifully presented with en-suite facilities. There's a good kitchen which is well equipped if you want to cook - food is readily available in the small local shops and don't miss out on the local bread and patisserie either. There is plenty of room to lounge around in the sun on the rooftop terraces or in the ground floor seating area by the water feature. We can highly recommend Riad Linda.
