Riad Cinnamon
Ranked #351 of 1,170 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Myself and my 2 daughters have just spent a week in Marrakech a tthe Riad Cinammon. What a lovely Riad it was the staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. You are given a mobile phone on arrival and can ring if you get lost which we did the first couple of days and Hussein would come and find us. The riad is very quiet and peaceful and the roof terrace gives amazing views. It takes a couple of days to get used to Marrakeck life but then just enjoy it. the people are so friendly and helpful. Vist the henna cafe it is a charity run cafe owned by Lucy and George. We met some lovely people there including Fatima who is the best henna tattoist. I would not recommend get a "calech" from the square as I felt a lot of the horses are not cared for properly, but the riad will organise one for you and it is a lovely way to see the city once you get used to the bedlam on the roads!!! I will definitely go back and enjoy more of Morocco hopefully into the sahara and atlas mountains. My only gripe about the riad was the noise AC. It was very hot when we went and so had to keep ac on all night and it was not that powerful and very noisy. There is plenty to do and see in Marrakech and it is full on everynight. Do visit the Artisan market as here things are a fixed price so it gives you a good idea of what things are worth when bataring. We sooned got used to bataring and it does become quite addictive when you start to feel confident. Most shopkeepers speak English but as always you can get by with sign language. the people of Marrakech have great sense of humour my daughters are young women and were plagued by the men, but we soon got used to handling it and felt it was all just in good humour and got to know most of them in a friendly way. We felt totally safe even at night. The medina has a tourist police force who are very vigilant in looking after tourists.

If you're looking for a great place to stay in the old Medina this is it!! Great staff, great service! Get lost in the souks while working your way towards Jemaa el Fna. I will definitely be going back. Thanks Abdou!!

I cannot say enough about this riad. The staff is Fanastic and really takes care of you. They actually give you a cell phone with their numbers in it in case you get lost. We stayed in the Essaouira suite which was very comfortable. We had a meal prepared for us the first night which was excellent. The riad is centrally located, easy walk to the jemma el fna, souks.

This was the first stop on our honeymoon in morocco and I couldn't have asked for a better place. Great location, fantastic staff, and piece and quiet in the medina. Mustafa and Abdu were there every step of the way to ensure we had a great experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Casablanca suite. Beautifully decorated!

Riad Cinnamon feels like my second home as I have stayed there many times, it is always a delight to go back. The riad is ideally situated in a quiet part of the Medina but within easy reach of everything you could wish for. The staff are lovely and extremely helpful and the facilities are excellent.
