We had an amazing week at the raid. Mohammed the owner was extremely helpful along with his Scottish wife!!
We were blessed to have a traditional meal with the couple in the courtyard.
The location is 25 minutes away from the main le place and the souks, but we were given a handy map which was ok.
Rooms very clean. Hot water came eventually.
Great value and put us in a great mood to explore the city, and yes buy a carpet!!!
Tip: Pre book a taxi from the airport as to find the riad first time is extremely difficult
Try some of the roadside cafes by the riad. If you speak French you will eat like a king!!!

Room Tip: Do not take a room on the ground floor. Too much noise and smoke................ The terrace is gr...

Unfortunately, google maps doesn't give an accurate walking route for Riad Jakoura and after pacing up and down Rue El Gza, we were extremely relieved to find the door to the riad after working out the directions provided in the email. The riad is lovely and cosy and has got a nice terrace for guests to enjoy. At 21euros, the price is very reasonable too, considering how we only booked it the night before! The owner let us choose between our own double and a triple which was vacant for the night. We picked the triple room and so essentially, we got an upgrade, which was really nice. It's a pity we only stayed a night and left early in next morning. Wish we got the chance to try the breakfast after reading about its rave reviews though!

The first night I was given a very small room with poor lighting. When I complained about this, I was given a larger more comfortable room Even so, the lighting was dim and the switch was outside the room.
The breakfast of crêpes, flaky pastry, bread with jam and honey was good. Coffee and mint tea flowed. This was served in the small mosaic-adorned central patio. Very pretty here!
Mohammed walked with me to find an excellent restaurant, which I couldn't have found otherwise.

Comfortable small riad run by a nice family. The owner is very polite and doesn't disturb you. We had a feeling that we were living in our own home. Rooms are clean and spacious. Nothing luxury but they have everything you need and a great value for money if you are on budget. Good breakfast. Was easy to find with instructions provided by the hotel. Located in a small derb (lane) away from the street noise, very quiet. Close to the bus station (Bab Doukhala) and there is a car parking very close to the riad. There was always WiFi and hot water which sometimes is a problem in other hotels in Marrakech. A bit long walking distance to Jemaa el Fna square (around 20 minutes), maybe there is a shorter way but we couldn't find it. The hotel's owener organizes different excursions if you want.

Riad Jakoura was a real exciting find for us. It’s nestled into the historic district only a few minutes walk from the market but in a secluded off the main street location that affords privacy and a peaceful environment in which to enjoy the Riad and all of its personality and ambiance. Rooms are small but well done. A big hug and a warm welcome from the owner/operator Hamid sets the tone for your entire stay. He and his staff will attend to your every need – meals, sightseeing, transportation, day or overnight tours, shopping and much much more. The breakfasts are truly superb and the top level view deck is a real plus. For us, this is what the Marrakesh experience is all about.

We stayed for one week in december. Nice, clean room, with ac to warm it up during cold nights. Located in the medina, about 15 min walk to Jema El Fna, and 5 min to the central bus station. Great value for the money, continental breakfast, with coffee and ment tea included. Our host Mohamed was very helpful, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this riad again.
Highly recommended.
