We were amazed when we walked around Marrakech above all the first night.

We made the reservation directly with the Riad via e-mail. Notice that you should do that in advance due to the fact the Riad is always fully booked.

Familiar treatment we received is which characterize the Riad. All the staff is continuously taking care of you and whatever you need (excursions, sightseeing places, taxi driver, tourist guide, etc …).

Concerning the Riad itself, the most important is its cleanness. They serve breakfast and it is possible to have dinner there as well.

We spent three nights in CITRONNIER Room and then four nights in JACARANDA Room. For a special stay we recommend the last one (it’s well worth to see the bathroom).

We want to thank the owners for their kindness towards us since we wrote our first e-mail to them.

Finally, we sincerely recommend people the Riad Ariha for one of the best option of accommodation in Marrakech.

Riad Ariha

We have just come back from the Riad Ariha and found it to be every thing we expected. From reading Trip advisor we booked a beautiful room with it’s domed bathroom, and stars in the ceiling.
The whole room was tastefully decorated at first we couldn’t see the air conditioning it was so discretely tucked behind a screen .
I am glad I read trip advisor before I went I do not think I would of liked to stay at ground level as the rooms opened onto the courtyard where you ate and people relaxed. The rooms again were very attractive and tastefully decorated.
Breakfast was variable on the first day it was a feast: there after not so good mainly bread and a foil wrapped cheese. The last morning we had been promised breakfast but there was no one around except the other couple who left with us, so we left with no breakfast.
The Tagines cooked by Hatija (Not sure of the spelling) were magnificent and by far the best tagines we ate any where in Marrakech
The roof terrace was lovely and relaxing a good place to sun bath or just to sit and catch a gentle evening breeze. The riad was defiantly a romantic. place to be. When we first arrived we thought we would never find our way about but it became quite easy.

Positives:
the Riad itself is very pretty and oasis-like, which is important because Marrakech can be so manic and crazy;
the Riad staff were very helpful and kind;
the rooms were nice (especially the more expensive ones, the less expensive ones were a bit small);
the air conditioning actually kept the room cool (a bit of a rarity in Morocco);

Negatives:
the Riad is soooooo far from the attractions in Marrakech, you can take a taxi, but then its still a 10 min. walk through winding allies with occasional signs telling you that you are on the right path. To make the trip worse, there are teenage boys harrassing you the entire time and telling you they can take you where you want to go, then demanding money. (and they take you in convuluted circles so you cannot find your own way for next time). We stayed 4 nights: the first (especially) as well as the 2nd and 3rd were very frusterating, but by the 4th night, we finally had figured out how to make the 20-30 mins walk from Djemaa el Fna to the Riad. Ask the riad staff to help you find your way!!!! (they are pretty nice about it).

Riad Ariha is an oasis of calm reached after a five minute walk through the narrow streets of the old medina. You will be surrounded by kids wanting money to guide you, and the way can be confusing, but they are not threatening. Some have learnt English phrases and like to try to talk, others just want the money! Amina, who was running the riad whilst we were there, is an absolute delight - a very calm person, maybe she is like that anyway or maybe the atmosphere has rubbed off on her! She was very helpful - we were looking for door bolts in the souk - and she wrote it out in Arabic for us. It is an easy walk distance-wise to Jemaa el Fna, the road is busy with people, donkey carts, cars, mopeds which all adds to the flavour. Our upstairs room was spacious and clean, fantastic domed ceiling in the bathroom. It was great to sit and watch the sun setting from the roof terrace. A great place to stay if you're not put off by the route to get there.

I was a bit apprehensive when we selected Ariha to stay at in Marrakesh, but that quickly went away. The place is lovely. A divergence from the dark all Moroccan style riads to a brighter, warmer riad which is very well maintained and clean!!!!!!!!
The staff are excellent and helpful and the owners are a delight.

The bathrooms were my favorite though, and I very seldom say that. An andalucian, moroccan, deserty feel to them. everything in shades of white and copper. gives you a real sense of serenity.

We highly recommend.
