“Beautiful Riad in the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Spent 4 nights here and absolutely loved it. It's location is perfect in the Medina and within walking distance of most attractions. Valerie is the perfect host, she greeted us on arrival with mint tea and pastries whilst giving us plenty of useful information about Marrakesh, this also included hand drawn maps and a mobile phone to call her if we had any problems. The Riad is kept very clean and has a wonderfully calming and relaxed feel to it. Breakfasts were delicious with Saadia's home made yoghurt (probably the best I have tasted), fresh orange juice, homemade brioche, pastries, pancakes....all extremely tasty!

I would definitely stay at the Riad Cherrata again, it was a truly wonderful place with a real personal touch. Valerie and her team should be very proud of themselves.

This was our first trip to Marrakech and I am very happy we chose to stay at Riad Cherrata. Valerie greeted us with tea and Moroccan treats, explained how to get around in Marrakech, which is very important if you are visiting for the first time. Very delicious breakfast every morning, beautiful, Moroccan style room, very comfortable and cozy, very clean. Stunning views from the rooftop. Valerie helped us with everything, reservtaions, taxis. She made our first stay in Morocco truly amazing! My husband and I were treated like part of the family. I highly recommend staying at Riad Cherrata!

Riad Cherrata is hidden in a quite side alley close to the main square (about 10 minutes walking distance). We were overwhelmed by the personal service Valerie (the owner) is offering. She even passed us a phone with a local sim card for our person use. Moreover, she has given excellent dinner recommendation with fantastic food, which we enjoyed a lot. The riad is tastefully decorated with high attention to detail. We would definitely come again if we were in town and this is place cannot be beaten. Thanks Valerie & team.

This is a wonderful place to stay, Thankyou Valerie & your lovely staff for taking such good care of my daughter my friend & myself. The three of us can not speak highly enough of the experience we had in Marrakech which was made all the more special by having such lovely accommodation with such a personal touch, Valerie was so very attentive & helpful in guiding & advising us, answering any questions we asked. The food & service was excellent! Lovely quality accommodation, everything you see in the pictures & more. Good location with an easy 10 minute walk into the heart of Jemaa el Fna & the historic souks, etc. Breakfast was excellent, lovely choice & varied from day to day...servings are VERY generous, I find it difficult to eat so much in the mornings...but I did my best...was just sorry to see so much return to the kitchen... ;-). The place is spotless & very well maintained. We stayed for 4 nights all up, next time I would book here again for at least a week. Ecellent experience!!!. Thankyou Valerie xxx

There are many beautiful riads in Marrakech - but only one is hosted by Valerie! Valerie and her team make the difference. No other place have we experienced a service like the service offered at Riad Cherrata. You feel personally taken care of, and everything has been thought of. Besides that, the riad is really beautiful, the beds are good, and the standard of cleanliness is high! The breakfast is also really something, most of it homemade. This is the place to stay. Enjoy your stay!

There was only one problem with our staying at Riad Cherrata.......Not enough days to enjoy such a special place. We had planned a three day stay and I regret the fact that it was not long enough not only to visit Marrakech but also to enjoy the service and the accommodations offered by Valerie and her wonderful team. Impeccable rooms, wonderful breakfast, beautifully done interiors, and the most caring and thoughtful host.... Valerie with all her recommendations (including her hand drawn map), the cell phone She provide us with (That She actually answer when we need her) , Her going out of her way to buy me a set of her beautiful breakfast dishes. Abdue (taxi driver), gentle , sweet man that help us with no understanding of each other language, I'll definitely plan to come back and tell all my friends about Riad Cherrata. Thank you Valerie!

Fantastic riad, quiet and tucked away in the very centre of the Medina.

Valerie could not have been friendlier and more helpful and was a marvellous host during my stay, even coming to find me when I got lost in the souk (the mobile phone with the local SIM she gives the guests is a great, thoughtful touch).

Breakfast was probably the best I've had anywhere.

Highly recommended.
