“Amazing Riad in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I recently returned from Morocco and spent 3 nights at Riad Melhoun. Our stay there was fabulous! The Riad is clean, quiet and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or kind. Youssef checked on us everyday and answered our endless questions of things to see, restaurants to eat at etc...Additionally, the food at Riad Melhoun was the best I had in all of Morocco. You must not miss a meal there, I promise you won't be disappointed. The location of the Riad is very easy to find and has easy access to main paths within the Riad. They treated us like family and make our trip to Marrakech very easy. I highly recommend to any traveler.

We stayed in several riads in Marrakesh and this was by far the best. The design was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. Before long it started to feel like our home away from home. The prices are fair and very generous and unlike some other riads you don't get charged for every cup of tea. You ll never feel lonely because the hosts are so friendly and accommodating. The wifi was good, the rooms clean and my favorite spot was the rooftop terrace where you can tan and look at the city. The breakfast was very generous and the hosts are very accommodating to the guests needs. The location is very central and puts you in short walking distance to most of the major attractions and to the local spice market were you can shop like a native if you can pull it of.

If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the streetside Riads, but situate yourselves in a central location offering a great value for money, this is the place.

We just spent a week there and couldn't have asked for more. They took care of airport transfers, city taxis, tours and gave great directions to the sites.

Youssef and Hischam were so friendly and approachable they always put you at ease. I'd recommend this Riad to families and couples.

Eating there is a MUST! It's the best meal we had in Marrakech by quite a distance! It's a 5/5 and an easy 9/10 without thinking about it.

This is a newly renovated property in a central location within walking distance of many key sites. The Riad is lovely to look at, clean and very comfortable, well maintained, with a host of amenities. The staff were always attentive and helpful. It was an oasis of calm in a very busy city and a lovely place to come back to each night.

My mother and I had the best holiday ever. The Riad is breathtaking and so peaceful, after a few days staying there it began to feel like a second home. The staff were amazing, we could not have asked for more helpful people. There was nothing that they weren't willing to do and the manager Youseff was so hospitable and great fun to talk to. Marrakech itself is such an interesting place to visit but what made the holiday so good for us was this Riad. We are talking of returning to Morocco again as we had such a good time and should we decide to stay in Marrakech again there is no doubt that we would choose to stay at Riad Melhoun. I strongly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for an unforgettable holiday!

Although we didn't stay at this Riad we checked it out for our daughter who may visit next year. It is an absolutely brilliant location - away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the Medina.

The very kind owner gave us a drink on the pretty roof terrace after we had looked at the rooms and told us about the history of the building and the renovations to it.

We saw it in May but I lost his card and have just found it. Definitely a property to consider if visiting Marrakech. Authentic surroundings with a very friendly owner. I can imagine that the hospitality is very good.

4 days and nights in Riad Melhoun really made my time in Marrakech special. Great location, beautiful accommodation, wonderful quiet rooms and living areas, fabulous hospitality. Excellent breakfasts, and a most delicious meal was prepared for my sisters and I one night on request. After 4 nights away and a long drive back from my night in the Sahara, I couldn't wait to get "home" to the peace and amenities of Riad Melhoun. Always peaceful after a day out in Marrakech, especially having some quiet time to relax by the indoor pool or on the roof. The staff were really attentive, friendly and helpful.. The manager Youseff was just wonderful. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
