“clean comfortable riad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

we were 3 friends staying in a triple room at Riad Nesa
We were met with a friendly welcome and as we arrived quite late we asked for the dinner which was tasty. comfortable beds, good shower and air con.
the breakfast on the terrace was really nice, 3 types of moroccan flat breads which we saw all over the town served with butter, honey and jam. Best fresh orange jucice ever!! and a decent coffee with hot milk set us up for the day.
we were only in marrakesh for one day so the location was great, less than 5 minutes to the main square and the souks
the staff were very friendly and helpful and if i was going to marakesh again i would stay here or recommend it to a friend.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 different rooms as we stayed on 17th and 21st. one room was on the road but not noisy...

The rooms were clean, nice and adequately spacious. The people working at the riad were very kind, helpful and attentive and made our stay in Marrakech even better. Breakfast was very good too. Definitely recommended. It is also located very close to the main attractions in the city.

Stayed for one night only and for that purpose money well spent. Riad had a funny smell of urine in all hall ways and in our room too. Nice decor but not as well maintaned as some of the other riads we saw. Good breakfast but no pool or sunbathing tho they have a roof top terrace. Excellent location, but if you want to sleep in the markets down on the road starts buzzle at 8am with motorbikes etc.

This riad was excellent from the moment we arrived. We were met from our taxi by a member of the riad staff and shown the way.

We had requested dinner on the night we arrived and the food we were served was amazing! Diner was served on the roof and consisted of a selection of 6 different starters, followed by meat and vegeterian tagines then a chocolate dessert. The food was of a very high standard, all freshly prepared and the setting on the roof terrace topped it off. Breakfast was also served on the terrace each morning and consisted of coffee, Morrocan pancakes and orange juice.

The location on the riad couldn't have been better, right in the centre of Marrakech and a 5minute walk from the central square, souks and all of the main sights. the staff were always really helpful and friendly making us feel welcome.

This was our first visit to Marrakech and I would definitely recommend this riad to anyone planning a trip as it was a great start to our holiday!!!

Stayed her in early January having returned from a trip to the desert. Staff were very excellent and offered us tea upon arrival. The room was lovely and so was the bathroom with nice hot water!! Breakfast was very good and upon leaving the guy on reception helped us with our bags to go and get a taxi. The street the Riad is on is not accessible by taxi however it is only a couple of mins walk to the main street. This Riad is also very close to Jamaa El Fna Square. Would def recomment

We have just come back from 4 days in Marrakesh. We booked this riad because it was within our budget and we wanted a family room. If you are offered the above room for 4, don't take it. The fact that you can wedge in 4 beds does not make it a family room. We did also see the Idrissedes room however which is also a family room and much more spacious with a proper bathroom, choose that one instead.
We pre booked a taxi both to and from the airport. Much more than you will pay if you do it locally, but worth it in my view as it saves any hassle. The riad itself is french owned, and according to hotel staff seems to be the case of most Marrakesh property as locals cant afford to buy it. The two lads who worked the reception work ridiculous hours for 300 euro a month, yet were the happiest lads I've met.
The riad is well located, although you cant go wrong anywhere within the medina as it so small and walk-able. It feels like its down an alley, but its actually on a main drag and a 10 minute walk to the main square. The food-stalls in the main square offer great food. We ate there every night including the kids and nobody was ill.
The breakfast at the Riad is carbohydrates in every imaginable form, but the orange juice is fresh and the coffee great. Dont have high expectations for breakfast. Mint tea is available whenever you want it, but it wasn't to our taste. Bring some tea bags with you if you miss a cuppa either in the morning or afternoon. There is a sun terrace on the roof, and the TV has English news channels. All in all I would say the staff are fabulous and welcoming, the riad nice, but I'm sure there is better to be had. We enjoyed, but wouldn't go back as our room was cramped having to climb over beds to get to a tiny bathroom. Room fine if only 2 of you.
