“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I stayed at Riad Gallia this September for 4 nights and loved it. The owners and the staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, they even offered to take us to their own restaurant and teach us how to cook in 'true Moroccan' style. The riad itself is lovely, it's like a little paradise hidden in a crazy town. The rooftop terrace has sun chairs so great for sunbathing and views over the city. It is built around 2 courtyards decked with flowers and chirping small birds. Avoid the tortoises wadering aimlessly around, . The breakfasts were lovely although lacked variation consisting of butter jams, Danish Pastry, Croissant and French bread with good coffee. This was served in the courtyard although I am sure had we wished we could have had it on the roof terrace. There is also a common room off of the courtyard should the weather be inclement. This is the only spot where you could use the free wireless network. My room was spacious and well appointed, clean and comfortable with air conditioning that worked very well and it was free! The bathroom was the bathroom. Had a bath with a shower over but no bath curtain so the floor did tend to get wet. The location was ideal a 5 min walk to the Square and the souks in one direction and a 10 minute walk to the old palace, the tombs and the Jewish quarter in the other direction the souks are no more than a ten minute walk from the riad. It is situated down a small alley (perfectly safe) which is off of the main pedestrianised road which is full of life. The rooms are large in size and very clean. Overall we would highly recommend this riad to anyone going to Marrakech.

Lovely, clean and comfortable rooms with a beautiful view of the courtyard where roses and flowers abound. The terrace is well kept and offers a good view of the surroundings.
We stayed four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located, if you want to spend some time in the Medina which definitely deserves more than a day or two of your time. It was a peaceful place to come back to after a day of exploring and experiencing the ancient alleys, the markets and Jemaa El Fna, which can be pretty intense. The breakfasts were generous and tasty.
If they recommend a day trip for you outside of Marrakech, ask if your tour guide speaks your language. This was the only negative I experienced at Gallia.
On a different note, we wanted the opportunity to talk to the natives of the community and tried to find places to eat where it wasn't just tourists. It made our experience even more rewarding.

we spent only 1 overnight and we found the place pretty good. The double room was clean and quite, the location was excellent a few minutes on foot from Place El Fna. There are cheaper hotels, but for Marrakech the price is in the average. For the ones driving, there is a private garage next door. Good choice.

Friendly Marrakech welcome and great refuge from the madness of the square! Breakfast in the garden is lovely, the rooms are spacious (if the wiring is somewhat questionable!) and while the views from the terrace are a little restricted, it's a nice space.

The courtyard layout makes the windows orient towards the corridor & hence can be noisy sometimes. Leafy courtyard is an excellent place to have the fabulous breakfast. Clean toilets. Air-conditioning helps during summer. Good value for money.

We have stayed in Le Gallia for two nights this august and enjoyed every minute of it. The roof top terrace is wonderful as are the whole building and the breakfast. The hotel is located really good right next to a big street with lots of restaurants and bars. Djema el fna is only a 5 minute walk away.

I can only recommend this place to everyone visiting Marrakech!
