RIad Al Loune
Ranked #128 of 501 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This Riad is an amazing oasis in the chaotic Medina of Marrakech. It has six beautiful bedrooms, each of them decorated with a special charm. On the terrace, there are some deck-chair where you can lay and enjoy the sunset and the view of city heart and surrounding mosques.
The breakfast is delicious and plentiful. “Thé a la menthe” with some great cookies is served whenever you like to. We also had dinner (that you need to pre-order) in the fantastic courtyard. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere pretty romantic (and at a great price too)!!!
The service is really awesome. Simon and Kadija go beyond your expectations, always happy to help you with whatever you need.
I totally recommend the transfer from the airport as well since the Riad is in a small alley and not easy to find.
Before our arrival, we got an email from the general manager Cecilia with useful information and things to do before getting to the Riad.
Summing up…a wonderful Riad with awesome people in it!

Fantastic Riad. From the moment you walk into the Riad you feel relaxed. The owner is very helpful and ensure that everything you need is arranged. If you want breakfast on the terrace but then five minutes later you decided it's too hot and want it by the pool, it's no problem. The rooms were cleaned beautifully. The breakfast was plentiful and the dinner was wonderful. We will definitely be recommending it to friends.

(Probably would not recommended for a single female traveller as location is down some narrow allies, however the owner am sure could arrange safe escort to souks)

Riad Al Loune certainly lives up to expectation. The service you receive from the team, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave is amazing - attentive but not overpowering. Nothing was too much trouble. The Riad is kept in fantastic condition - beautiful toiletries provided in the bathroom. We ate at the Riad twice - pre-ordering our meal in the morning. The food was lovely and traditional and served with a glass of wine. The lovely colourful Breakfast set you up for the day. This Riad certainly offers you a serene calm base which is needed after a day in the madness of Marrakech. Congratulations Riad Al Loune!!

What an amazing place is this Riad. You can't believe that behind a door of a narrow 'derb' (allie) you will find such a beautiful building. The whole Riad is so grand and it has been decorated with such great taste. It was a pleasure to come back every day to this oasis after visiting a hectic and busy Marrakech and enjoy a ‘thé a la menthe’ in the courtyard. The place is kept spotlessly clean and in perfect condition.

Our room ‘Vert’ was incredibly beautiful, every little detail was special. Mohammed and Kadija were always eager to help and organised a lot of things for us such as reservations to restaurants and taxis.

Breakfast was excellent and abundant, and it was different every day!

I’m also very grateful for the emails I received from Cecilia, the general manager before we arrived, with very useful information. Booking our transfer from the airport to the Riad with them was a very good decision as we arrived quite late and knowing that somebody was waiting for us was really reassuring.

I would not hesitate to recommend this Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech.

Room Tip: There are only seven rooms in the Riad and they are all amazing. We chose the Vert simply because i...

This Riad is the best! We just returned as a couple and we felt so relaxed during our stay here. It's such a serene place with personal attention. You really feel like they take good care of you. The 'mama' cooks delicious! Her artichokes are out of this world!

The service and the atmosphere in this Riad is incredible!!! After booking, we received a friendly email with all the details on how to get there and an offer to book a transfer organised by the Riad, what we finally did. We were picked up by taxi at the airport and then guided by a friendly staff member on the short walk through the Medina to the Riad. Once there, we were in the middle of the peaceful and lovely oriental atmosphere of the Riad Al Loune. Fresh mint tea and delicious Moroccan cookies were offered to us and we were asked to feel like home. This was not difficult! The staff looked after us in such a friendly way that we really felt like home.

The building and the rooms are in an oriental style and there are so many details in decoration that you just cannot believe how beautiful it is. You can choose if you want to have breakfast on the terrace or in the patio and you will get a rich Moroccan breakfast with pancakes, pastries, cake, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad.... We can also recommend to have an original Moroccan menu in the Riad cooked by the very friendly cook Rachida. A massage in the Riad is a must. It is done with Argan oil (be careful, in the Souks, the quality of Argan oil is not that high, but you can buy a bottle of good quality Argan oil in the Riad).

The Riad is located at the eastern end of the Souks, so you can be in the middle of the Souks after 2 minutes walk. The beautiful previous Koran school "Medersa Ben Youssef" and the Museum of Marrakech are reachable within 5 minutes walk. The famous square Djemaa el Fna is around 10 minutes walk away and on the way to it you will pass the beautiful spice market "Place des Epices". As the streets around the Riad are not allowed for cars you can take a taxi to visit places/have diner outside the medina directly from the Djemaa el Fna square.
