“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

For me what made this a wonderful stay, was the complementary taxi pick up from the air port, the welcome from Aldo - the manager, and warmth of the staff, Ahmed in particular. Very simple riad, but clean, with wonderful showers, and great breakfasts - freshly squeezed orange juice, hot pancakes, home made jams, and steaming coffee. Also the riad is wonderfully positioned only 5 minutes from the central square and souqs.

We loved our stay at the Riad Harmonia. Beautifully located, tastefully decorated, and very sweet staff. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to friends. My girls (12 & 10) enjoyed reading on the terrace and hanging out around the pool.

We just came yesterday from Marrakech, and I would like to send you a few words.
Generally speaking, all has been perfect.
Since we arrived at the airport, we were received by the van who drove us to one of the sides of Jemal El Fnaa. There, we had a bellboy waiting for us who took our luggage to the riad.
Upon arriving at the riad we were assigned to each of the rooms (all four rooms on the first floor).
Breakfasts were excellent and well prepared. Always with bread, jams Moroccan toasts (I don't know their name), tea, coffee, orange juice, and one of the days, an excellent omelette/fried eggs.
We were also offered one dinner and it was very good:
Some typical salads, then poulet caramelizé et citroné, that was very good. and some Moroccan pastries as desert.

All in all we have had a very good time. Rooms were always clean and ready when we came back from outside.
The decoration of the Riad is quite neutral, what I think is very good.

Ahmed, Aldo and the girl in the kitchen (I don't remember her name) were very handful all the time. La famme de menáge, I suppose was good also.

If there was something that I would like to have changed is the check-in process.
Instead of being wuite a long time filling up the documents, this could probably have been done by Ahmed the following day when we were having breakfast.

But frankly, you have very competitive prices and value for money the offer is very good.
Congratulations.

Indeed we will recommend the riad to our friends or will come back!

Located a minute's walk from the hustle and bustle of central Marrakesh. Unbelievablely quiet.

Very friendly and helpful staff, can even watch premiership football if you need a break.

Superior double room is absolutely amazing, def worth paying for. Someone around at all times of day and night. Although down alleys, they are well lit and very safe.

Would not even consider looking elsewhere if returning to Marrakech.

Aldo, the manager, attends to every need. Good breakfast and tea on request. Who could want more.

Room Tip: Superior double room.

We stayed there in 2010. Typical riad: no central roof and the wedding reception next door for one night went on till 4am! This was unusal. Excellent all round. You get to the riad through an escorted trip along a narrow lane to this door and then it opens up to something special. Generally quiet at night, hospitable folk. Not far from the central square but remarkably quiet. A week in Marakesh is really too long but the four of us hired a taxi for the day (several times) and went off to various places - even an "animal" souk - and Mr Virgin's retreat which costs a lot if you want to stay there!

Room Tip: all room are good

I traveled for four days with my friends and we were delighted and amazed at your Riad. The service was incredible and the staff were very hospitable and caring. 
The house is very clean, well maintained and with good finishes. The breakfast is very varied and good. The location is perfect, it's located just a 5 minutes walk from the main square, Djemaa el Fna. The ground floor room, where we installed, is fabulous and very clean. 
Finally, this Riad deserves Rating Excellent! 
I loved and recommend!

This riad was an excellent place to stay. We were here for three nights, and all three were incredible. The riad only has five guest rooms, so it really does feel like home. It was beautifully decorated, and captured the exotic Moroccan feel.

Lamia and her staff were excellent hosts, and always took the time to sit down and talk to us about things to do in Marrakech and she also arranged our airport transfers and such.

Despite what some reviewers have said, the breakfast is perfectly adequate. While it is not a big hotel breakfast buffet, it has many courses and is quite good. On all three days, we had eggs and crepes made for us, as well as bread and croissants with a selection of jams, jellies, etc.

Also the location only adds to the charm. When we arrived the first night after dark, navigating the alley was intimidating, but by the next day we had figured out where the riad was and had no trouble getting there and back. It is located centrally, just a 3-5 minute walk from the main square, Djemaa el Fna.

The riad was exceptionally clean as well, our rooms were freshened each day and we noticed the staff cleaning the floors each morning.

The pool shown in the picture is really a big jacuzzi. It is quite nice to use, but is not heated, so I would recommend taking a soak in the middle of the day, when the sun from above heats it naturally.

The rooftop terrace was also a great way to unwind after a day of walking and touring.

In all, I would highly recommend this raid for your stay in Marrakech. Nothing beats the personal touch and B&B feel of this riad!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the orange bay window.
