“A Magical Oasis in the Heart of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2006

Riad Magi exemplifies the magic of the riad experience. Its simple elegance, serene courtyard, charming rooms, and, above all, welcoming staff provide a hidden sanctuary within the walls of Marrakech's vibrant medina. The riad is located just a few steps from Djema al-Fnaa (Marrakech's main square). We stayed at the riad for a total of four nights in April 2006, spread out over the course of a week (we used Marrakech as a base to visit other cities in Morocco). Riad Magi was extremely flexible in accommodating us (3 persons) and as a result we saw all but one of the six rooms. The rooms, each with its own bath, are comfortable and individually decorated with warm colors and local furnishings. The rooms vary in size and face the open interior tree-filled tiled courtyard, in which fresh rose petals are scattered daily. The staff -- Ibrahim, Abdul, and Hadassah -- were very friendly and arranged for guides and restaurant recommendations / reservations. Ibrahim even went to the train station to pick up our train tickets the night before an early departure. Breakfast (prepared by Hadassah) was included and consisted of both Moroccan and Continental foods. It was consistently delicious and Riad Magi's mint tea was the best we tasted anywhere! From our experience, we suggest that you ask to have someone from the staff come to meet you at a designated spot upon arrival as the riad's location is not immediately obvious. We would definitely stay at Riad Magi again.

We stayed in this delighful riad for just 2 days, but we were made most welcome by Maggie and her team. Staying there enabled us more quickly to grasp what Marrakech is all about, be told a little about the city - not the kinds of things you find inthe guide books. The breakfasts are sublime - and so much to eat. The vanilla yoghurt has to be recommended!

I would heartily recommend this riad to anyone seeking calm and tranqulity in Marrakech; it will give you an insight into life in Marrakech which you do not get in hotels, be they budget or 4 star
