I spent 3 nights at Riad Chafia in late April 2013. This place is a peaceful haven in the madness of the medina - just 10 minutes from the Jemaa el-Fnaa square and within easy walking distance of all the main sites. Inside is beautifully decorated; the rooms are comfortable and welcoming. Tortoises roam free on the roof terrace - a great spot to enjoy breakfast in the morning and sunbathe in the afternoon.

The standout point of Riad Chafia is without a doubt Patrick, the owner. Patrick arranged my airport transfers, recommended good spots to eat, and showed me the route to all of the main attractions. When I wanted to do a little shopping, he even offered to come along and make sure I got the best price.

You can probably find more luxurious riads in Marrakech, but I doubt there are any as welcoming as here. Riad Chafia could (and - given the time and effort Patrick spends looking after his guests - probably should...) charge much more than it does. Absolute bargain for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: Room 5 ("Warda") has a large and impressive bathroom

I spent 4 nights in Riad Chafia in April. I really liked it a lot as it is located on a small alley which mean very quite to rest after the hustle of the Medina :)
It is located 15mn walk from Djema Efna square and 15mn walk from Majorelle.
My room was Lilac one, perfect size, clean, very good bed.
Owner Tareq is very friendly and helpful!
There's plenty of space to relax - terrasse, patio.
You can feed the turles on the terrasse, I named them Lulu and Geraldine :)
Breakfast is good (too many thinks for me as I am not a big eater!).
only 1 little thing to improve: I would have prefer frsh squeezed oragne juice and local jam :)
Other than that all good!

Fantastic experience at this accommodation. Walking down a small alleyway reminiscent of a charlie and the chocolate factory scene you arrive at a tiny beautiful door entitled Riad Chafia. The Riad itself is beautifully presented with unique touches and the rooms are immaculate, spacious and rival 5 star boutique hotels in the UK. The roof terrace with the riads three pet tortoises provides a lovely tranquil setting away from the main square and shops which are only a ten minute walk away. On an evening it is so peaceful you can forget you are anywhere near the square and its hustle and bustle and really get a good nights sleep in your room and the beautiful roof terrace is the perfect setting to sit and relax and reflect on your day and surroundings. Whilst the accommodation itself is fantastic it really is the owner who makes the place. From day one we were instructed to treat the house as our own, breakfast was plentiful and beautifully presented each morning at whatever time we chose and he provided very helpful guidance around shopping, prices, local advice and trips even giving us his phone number and places of contact in case we got lost. He even took us down to a local hammam he recommended and answered plenty of questions we had about the local culture and area, upon leaving he gave us beautiful business cards and pictures from his own collection. A perfect stay I couldn't fault.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are smaller than others but all are beautifully decorated, staying with a friend we chose to share a double room as there is only one twin room and the doubles are slightly better presented, each room has dimensions so its worth looking for the bigger ones.

We ended up at this terrific Riad by accident when we couldn't find the one we were booked into. (One tip is never book with a credit card in Marrakech if you can possibly help it because if you can't find the place they could charge you for your entire visit and everywhere is difficult to find). But Patrick, the French owner, although short of help, was a perfect host, showing us how to wind our way through the medina. He has a lovely terrace with pet turtles. The room was a bit damp, a problem we most likely could have solved by asking him to turn on the heat. He served a very special pastry for breakfast our last day--another little sign that he really cared.

We had a really wonderful experience here. Accommodation is as nice as promised. Service is excellent. Great location, just 10 minutes walk through the Medina to the main square. The owner Patrick was kind enough to walk us the route on our first day. We borrowed their travel books and they gave us some maps. Also Patrick materialised day trips for us as soon as we mentioned we were thinking about going somewhere. He is like a genie :-) We highly recommend this place.
