“Beautiful Riad”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The riad itself is beautiful, decorated superbly, every inch. The communal area downstairs was beautiful, especially at night with the candles, and our room was equally as lovely. The staff were so attentive and helpful, booking us trips and guiding us. The dinners were absolutely delicious, I would advise everybody to eat at least one meal there. As soon as we stepped inside it was an oasis of calm amongst the chaotic surroundings. The only negative which cannot be ignored is the surroundings. If you're expecting clean, tidy, "new" Marrakesh this is not the place for you. The riad is buried deep within the Medina. It's busy and chaotic outside, as British tourists, especially women, you will get looked out, stared at, followed etc. But this is not the fault of the riad itself, the riad is perfect, it cannot help its location. Just one thing to bear in mind when considering booking!

Myself and my wife spent 4 nights at this beautiful little Ryad in the medina. We were taken to the front door by our travel rep and were greeted by the friendly staff, who sat us down and gave us mint tea. The place is a little palace, very nicely decorated in tradional Moroccan style. The manager, Amin was most helpful, he gave us a map and drew on there the best routes to the tourist hotspots. Amin knows Marrakech inside out and is great at answering any questions and offered us great advice when we suggested where we wanted to go each day. All the staff were very very friendly and we were always greeted with a smile and asked if everything was ok. The guest is treated as number 1 in this Ryad. The double room we had was nice and cool and was very tastefully decorated. the batroom was spacious and a nice big shower with lots of hot water.
The Ryad is located about 25min walk from the main square, a route that takes you right through the souks and markets. It was really nice to stay in the old town as you felt you were in the middle of the chaos! We slept very well every night, possibly due to all the walking and sightseeing we carried out.

The roof terrace is a nice retreat from the hussle bussle of Marrakech, with a lovely traditional covered area with comfy sofas underneath.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Ryad Amiran, you will be well looked after.

This is such a beautiful Ryad. I just can't fault it. From the moment we arrived we were treated like kings and our room has been a luxurious haven from the chaos of the Souks. The roof terrace is a wonderfully private chill out zone and sunspot for an evening drink. Fully recommend this Ryad.

From the moment we scheduled this impromtu visit through our departure within a day, we were treated with the highest level of service. Located in the Medina you feel like you step back centuries but are treated to modern amenities. As soon as the staff realized our visit was short, they offered their advice on essential things to see. They provided very practical advice on how to enjoy the culture and be thoughtful about the surroundings. The highest level of service ever experienced as a traveler. The dinner at the hotel was delightful. I had to depart at 3:00 a.m. for a flight and the staff prepared coffee for me. This is the place if you want to experience Marrrakech but feel like you are home at the same time.

Me and my husband spent the most beautiful time on this special oasis of a Ryad. It was truly a memorable experience with friendly staff like Amin, Fatima and Mohamed who made us feel at home and so so welcome. Both the Ryad and the food was wonderful and we would definitely love to come back - in fact we have already booked our next stay here at it was just stunning! I have and will continue to recommend Ryad Amiran to all my family and friends.

A++++++++++ for everything - the staff know how to treat you like royality and the rooms are exquisite and epitomise luxury!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were exceptional - so you wont be disappointed!

This Riad even being back in our own home, feels like home away from home. My wife and I truly loved everything about it, from the Staff, namely Mohammed who was a great joy always very helpful with a smile on his face. He was ever so helpful in getting us into the Riad once we arrived, and always was at hand for any questions in the evening.

Amin, the Manager was great, he provided us with an upgrade at no cost with petals all around the room. He was very prompt with his emails as well as providing with a warm welcome when we arrived, mint tea and buscuits. It was sad to leave this Riyad given we spent a great time here, and the location was very close to the Roads, that it was not difficult to find from being dropped off. For us it was good that the Riad was not too close to the Djma el Fna as having stayed in Marakech before, I knew how noisy and difficult it is to get in and out from you Ryad.

Taxis only cost 20-30dhms to and from your Riad and thus it is very little price to pay for quiteness and tranquility which you would definitely get at this Riad. A sevice with a smile as I remember this fondly.

We were also given a place to watch the Champions League Final too, all in English as well, this was truly service with a capital S.

I would definitely recommend this Riad, which is like a 5*hotel, it is very new and feels so homely.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, and you can advise what the occassion is, so the Riad can accomodate.
