I stayed here in 2011, and again in October 2012. They now have 5 riads, and I have stayed at 3. this time I stayed at Abhar 2. The property is in an excellent location, a mere 3 minute stroll to the Djema el fna, but far enough to have a quiet oasis away from the mayhem !. The staff is excellent, the property beautiful and spotlessly clean. I was trying to arrange onward transportation from Marrakesh to Essaouira over Eid, and when I asked for suggestions from the Houria (staff), she actually remembered me from the previous year and arranged for free transportation in the company van for two of us..yes free! This is just one example of how staff can be such a benefit to your travels, they make certain to make your holiday as carefree as possible. I would definitely recommend this riad to anyone ..it is a gem and I will be back!

We had booked this through a KGB deal, it was for our honeymoon. On arriving, we were shown to a room with 2 single beds which had been pushed together, but were told we would be moved the following day to a larger room. To be fair, they did honour this and the room we were moved to had a double bed and was larger for the rest of our stuff, so made the rest of the stay more comfortable.

If you are a coeliac like us, it is important that you tell the Riad staff in advance what you can and can't eat, as we were nearly left without breakfast on the first day - it seems traditional to eat bread, pancakes etc, which of course we couldn't. However, after asking for different food through a local guide who could translate our requirements, we were given omlettes and fruit for the rest of the stay at breakfast time which was great. We didn't go hungry again!

The rooms are spotlessly clean but fairly basic and very comfortable with the air con a much appreciated extra. They take a real pride in the cleanliness of the entire Riad. The staff are also very friendly. If you know basic French, it'd be best to brush up on it as sometimes speaking English wasn't always easy for the staff to understand, but we got through!

The staff helped oragnise some great trips out which weren't expensive and helped make the trip more interesting. Thye location of the Riad is great, its close to everything, but really quiet once inside.

Yes, the Riad is down an alley, but it isn't unsafe at all. People aren't out to rob you, its not like in the UK where you at risk of getting mugged down a quiet alley. Of course you will always get opportinists anywhere in the world, but the locals would much rather get your money by bargaining with you in the market than through any sinister means so don't worry about that!

Overall, despite the disappointing start, we ended up having a really good time and would definately stay there again.

Marrakech is the kind of place to experience at least once in your life and staying in a Riad gives you a more authentic experience of the city, better than staying in a hotel in my opinion. We would recommend this to anyone thinking of booking it!

We stayed at the Riad with a coupon deal. This entitled us to half board stay for 3 nights, a massage, hammam, transport from the airport & tour of the city. Firstly, despite looking for around 20 minutes for our driver ar the airport, we did not find him. We took a taxi into the centre of Marrakesh and muddled our way through to the Riad. To be quite honest, we were quite scared. We had no idea how to get to the Riad, as we hadn't prepared to find it by ourselves. We paid a local to take us to the Riad, which was, terrifyingly, down a quiet alley. Luckily, I'd read another TripAdvisor review stating it was down an alleyway. Once inside the Riad we were suitably impressed. Our host, Abdul, couldn't do enough for us. He was very accommodating with our dietary requirements and supplied us with bottled water on our first night. Our room wasn't enormous, but it wasn't a holiday to be hanging about inside. The shower cubicle is a thing of beauty, however not the most practical. Every single morning we flooded the room due to the lack of shower curtain. Whilst waiting for our lift to the airport, we witnessed how meticulously the rooms are cleaned - you cannot moan about the cleanliness of the place. The Riad is in a great location, about 5 minutes walk from the main square (Djeema-el-Fna). The extras from our voucher were fantastic and we also took advantage of a tour run by the Riad. For 20Dh we were driven in their minibus to a Berber village and then on to the mountainous region. We did a brilliant hour and a half walk up to a waterfall. Again, we paid a man to lead us up. Be sure you take suitable walking shoes with you if you decide to go on this. We were hugely unprepared. If you decide on this mini adventure, be sure to watch out for the local cafes on the side of the mountain with tables and chairs situated in a running stream. The tour that was a part of the voucher was fantastic. However, we were taken to a number of vendors and pretty much expected to buy from them. This included a carpet seller who insisted on showing his products despite our protestations that we could not afford to buy anything and hadn't the luggage space to take home. Overall, this was a fantastic holiday for the price we paid. The Riad honoured the transportation and paid for a taxi back to the airport on the way home.

The staff try to help as much as they can by organising guides for you etc. We got a superior double room by paying a little bit more, but didn't feel like the room was worth it's price. However, they did give us a surprise massage for free. The breakfast was nice and the give it to you when you want: served especially for you :) Fairly clean by Moroccan standards :p

The Riad has an excellent location, a couple of minutes away from the Djeema-el-Fna and from the souks, yet it is very calm and quiet. We stayed three nights thanks to a Groupon offer and it was absolutely great value for money: we got a very pleasant massage, a hammam session, a good dinner, transportation from/to airport and a free tour of Marrakech included in the price. The tour of Marrakech was excellent as the guide (Hassan, I think) was very expert, kind, well-read and he spoke Italian perfectly. The room was clean and very spacious; maybe the bathroom should be a little more comfortable and needs a little more maintenance (the sink was leaking from below, the shower caused water spilling all over the floor and the toilet seat was unstable. Breakfast could be improved a little, with more Moroccan pancakes and local delicacies.
The bed was excellent and sleep very pleasant.
Staff was local, frendly and helpful. Marrakech is an exciting place, this was our second time in Morocco. I'll definitely come back.
