The riad 72 is an outstanding, unique and unforgettable place to stay.
" Thousand welcomes" was the first we heard, when we finally arrived there.
And this was the way we really felt ! Alexandra, Fatima, the beautiful young Morrocan lady & Rashid let us feel like in paradise, they red our lips........
The atmosphere is tranquill and just beautiful - it´s hard to leave this place!
And we still dream of the best dinner we had in Morocco - prepared by Fatima!
Thank you from the depth of our hearts!!!

Riad 72 is a stylish, unflashy, quality hideaway in the centre of Marrakesh. The rooms are spacious and elegant, the staff is wonderful, the food is unbelievable and the location is perfect for exploring the city.

My husband and I have travelled extensively and appreciate high quality accommodation, something a bit different, stylish, modern, yet authentic and Riad 72 fulfilled our expectations. From the communication we had with the Riad, prior to our arrival, about transfers from the airport, and being met by the concierge who loaded our bags into a cart and escorted us to the riad from the taxi, and preparing us dinner on our arrival (we had a night flight) we were thoroughly catered for and looked after.

Rashid was fantastic, he took the time and went through a map of the main tourist attractions, on our arrival, whilst we drank mint tea (the best mint tea by far!!!) In the uber gorgeous courtyard area whilst listening to chill-out music on the riads ipod. Nothing was too much trouble.

We had breakfast at the Riad, freshly prepared by Fatima, gorgeous! Which we ate on the roof terrace. The chef was amazing, by far the best tagine during our stay. Taxis were arranged for us and I had a massage in my room which was again by far the best I have ever had.

Overall our time in Marrakech will be remembered for the hospitality and friendliness of the staff at the Riad. We felt humbled by the experience and would definitely recommend Riad 72 to anyone wanting a bit of luxury and tranquility.

In terms of this Riad there is very little to fault it. It is stylish and elegant without being pretentious and the staff and service is impecible yet unobtrusive.

We stayed in the Amal suite that has the most amazing bathroom and a really decent size room, although if I was returning with my partner I would definately splash out on the Lile bridal suite (which is just amazing!)

The roof top tarrace has a beautiful panoramic view of the city and the Atlas Mountains and the plunge pool, although small, is a really nice (and very welcomed) touch.

We ate here two nights on our stay and the food was really very good. In fact it was much better and far more reasonable than the places that we ate out on (all of which were supposed 'top notch' in terms of food and cooking). We ate on the room terrace which was relaxed and comfortable.

The only real downside to this riad is if the other guest are inconsiderate it really will impact on your stay. Our last night was totally ruined by the other to sets of guests coming back very late with non-guests, playing music extremely loudly, shouting and singing and generally being louts. Although a member of staff was on sight (non managerial) the problem was not nipped in the bud and I had to deal with this problem after nearly an hour of Lady Gaga and rattling about as they helped themselves to the kitchen. As all rooms overlook the courtyard there was no way to avoid being impacted by this noise and as we had to be up for a flight a 6.00 am we were less than impressed.

However, this is as a result of very poorly mannered guests and is probably not a regular occurance. All in all a wonderful place but I would recommend the management consider how the riad is managed in the evenings

Warm welcomes and a pot of mint tea and home made biscuits made us instantly take to Riad 72. The service was spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble. We spent lots of time on the lovely roof terrace looking at the views over the medina and to the atlas mountains drinking rose.
Our room was clean and comfortable as was the rest of the Riad. It was so calm and restful. The perfect antidote to the hussle and bussle of the souks. Loved it.

The total experience at this riad was fantastic. The room was extreamly clean and beautiful. The staff are always polite and very attentive.
We had dinner at Riad72, their chef Fatima cooked amazing meals which I'm missing very much now...
The location is just outside the souk, it was convenient for shopping.
I cannot find any fault with this place. I highly recommend it to anyone who going to Marrakesh!
