“Sanity is a crazy town!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Very well presented...friendly helpful staff. Lovely food. Nice terrace to sunbath ...not dark and enclosed like some raids. Open bright space with designer feel. Highly recommend. Do not be put off by dark alley outside riad ...but recommend arranging a transfer from airport as taxis will not drop you outside riad. Good location for sight seeing and the souks.

Riad Cannelle is just a really lovely and tranquil place to stay. Perfectly positioned in the Medina, it is easy to find and is very close to the souks and all of the cafes and restaurants are a short stroll or taxi ride away. The courtyard is such a cool area to chill out in, listen to music or drink mint tea. The roof terrace is also a nice spot to have breakfast in the mornings or to just lay in the sunshine when you need time out from the chaos of Marrakech! The rooms are spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, complimented by stunning, ornate, morrocan furnishings. You are guaranteed a peaceful nights sleep here. The staff are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to help make your stay a wonderful and memorable experience. Adil, Badr and all of the staff at Riad Cannelle offered us a very warm welcome. Absolutely fantastic! You will love it!!

This Riad was perfect- an amazingly quiet haven from the madness of the souks that are pretty much on the doorstep. It is incredible how peaceful and serene it is once you step through the wooden door into the pretty little court yard, considering it is so close to all the action of Marrakech.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed coming back to the Riad to relax after sight seeing in Marrakech. Badh and Ali were excellent hosts- very willing to help (even walking with us to various locations to help us get our bearings) and very welcoming. The food is absolutely amazing - we ate twice in the Riad during our trip and the meals were delicious. We are also both vegan and the cook, Fazia, was really accommodating with providing us a vegan meal.

Great location, nice rooms and lovely roof top terrace to watch the sunset from. Would recommend this Riad to anyone.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and we would definitely recommend it. The location couldn't be better if you want to wander around the Souks or even venture in to the new town. Adil and Badr were absolutely wonderful hosts and they made us feel very welcome. We ate at the Riad one night and the food and atmosphere was fantastic. The Riad is beautiful and serene and we slept great.I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Guests are given a really warm welcome at Riad Cannelle. Upon arrival, you are welcomed with tea and biscuits by Adil, the very pleasant, courteous Manager. The chef, Fozzia cooked the tastiest meal I ever had in Morocco over 15 days. It was simply delicious and served by the most attentive waiter, who provided us with good advice and recommendations about food and shopping. We were given telephone numbers by the male staff, in case we needed an escort to our destinations, or needed help. The staff were extremely friendly and solicitous. My friends and I would certainly return to this riad for further short breaks as it is clean, pleasantly furnished and close to the souqs and main square.

Room Tip: It hasn't got a pool or fitness centre but can't remove the buttons!

We spent 5 fantastic nights at the riad with Adir and Badr and nothing was too much. Past posts were spot on regarding the excellent hospitality and assistance and nothing was too much trouble. Great location, fantastic team who were constantly looking after our every need and the food at Cannelle was the best we encountered in Marrakech. The Medina was a whirlwind of culture and new experiences and Cannelle was an oasis for us in the Medina. If you are looking for an authentic Marrakech experience look no farther, we will be back.

Just returned from a week spent in this wonderful Riad. A calm oasis after the hustle & bustle of life in the Medina. The staff couldn't do enough for us, they made us feel like very specail guests. We mostly ate in the Riad as the cook produced wonderful dishes. The manager Adiz, arranged a taxi from and to the airport, which was a wise choice on our part. Badr the day manager was extremely helpful with choice of restaurant and even took us through the maze of streets. Adiz also showed us the way to the square the first day with some helpful hints to find our way about. He spent time going over the map with us.
We chose to stay in a suite which was spacious & kept beautifully clean.
Staff also arranged a day trip to the Atlas mountains. So thankyou staff at this lovely Riad, you made our stay most memorable.
