This is a heavenly place run by beautiful people who are gracious, generous and kind. The attention, the food, the rooms and the overall service are outstanding. We feel so lucky to have stayed at Riad 72 and will return here without question.

I took my parents and aunt to Marrakech (They are around 70 years old and I thought It's gonna be tough trip for them!). However this riad relived their anxiety for this trip. We loved the decollation of our room and the reading space. Even towels were nice moroccan style!

The stuffs are so kind and they had great hospitality as 5 stars hotel!

We had lunch in here, but my parents and aunt are not used to eat short pasta. The stuff went to buy a spaghetti and they cooked our lunch as tender.
When my father fell and cut his arm deeply, they gave him first aid very quick.
I very much appreciate your kindness that made our trip perfect!

この様なホスピタリティあふれるリヤドはモロッコでは珍しいかと思います。
食べやすいスパゲッティを買ってきてくださり、少し深い傷の手当もして頂き、両親も不安ではなかった様です。
お酒もありますし、夜は静かで、とてもリラックスできました。外に出ると旧市街の土色の町並み、そして日常があり、とても楽しい場所でした。

I was glad to stay in a riad, instead of a hotel in my first visit to Morocco. Staying in a riad made me more immersed in the culture and traditions of the place. Riad 72 is located in a gritty part of the Medina, which gave me the feel of how the locales live. It is an easy walk to catch a cab to wherever you want to go. If traveling solo, and neighborhood seems intimidating, anyone who works in the riad can walk you to catch a cab.

Riad 72's decor is minimalist. The place is aesthetically pleasing. I stayed in room lile which is charming, but a bit dim for my liking. The room lacks natural light. There is no television, so if you have the curiosity to check out local stations when you travel to foreign lands, this might not be the place for you.

Riad 72 is a beautifull refuge in the amazing chaos that is Marrakech.

The staff were all great especially my man Rasheed.

I suggest a chicken tagine dinner with the local beer Flag on the tallest roof in the medina!!

I recommend Riad 72 100%

Our very generous friends booked Riad 72 in May 2013, so 4 couples had the Riad to ourselves and what an amazing property it is. Collected from the airport, the porter waiting to take our bags through the narrow alleyways; bags put in our fabulous rooms and mint tea and delicious biscuits served in a beautiful courtyard surrounded by palm trees; after months of miserable weather in the UK to be in the warm with clear blue skies - heavenly!
Superb, attentive service at all times. Delicious breakfasts with jugs of freshly squeezed orange juice. Clean and very comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the roof terrace where we had supper on the first night and as the evening was so clear we could see the Atlas Mountains in the distance. I would definitely recommend Riad 72 for adults who want to get away for a long weekend.

Room Tip: We stayed in the kingsize room with the huge bath (as I can't remember what the name of the room...

We had a fantastic stay at Riad 72. The service was above and beyond and they made us feel very welcome, especially providing us with tea and biscuits on entry. The riad was very clean, with an amazing roof top and wonderful staff. Look forward to a return visit soon.
