We arrived late in the evening & were offered (the mandatory) mint tea & some bowls of dried frutis & nuts. We were asked what we would like for dinner. I had been battling a stomach bug all day & asked for soup. I was told there was no soup just tagine & couscous. Why ask in the first place?
We were taken for a tour of the place. The whole riad is quite poorly lit & navigating up & downstairs was a real problem. We were shown to our equally poorly lit room. The room was quite small, clean though. The room was not well insulated as we could hear everything from the other rooms - toilets flushing, talking, showers running. The real problem was some other guests - a group - were dining downstairs & the nosie from their talking & laughter gravitated upstairs & we had to wear earplugs to get to sleep.
The next morning - me still really unwell - headed downstairs for breakfast. I had orange juice & a black coffee (all my stomach could handle). There was 2 crumpets, cut in half, 4 small assorted puffed bread things & 2 "Moroccan Pancakes" with an array of condiments. No fruit.
The breakfast for our next morning was the same, only we had a bowl of fruit too!!!
The real downside was the staff - with the exception of one wonderful gentleman that tried his absolute best to keep us happy. The 2 women that run the riad smiled only once at us.
I was so obviously unwell on the second day we were there. They knew I was in the room on my own. They knew my husband was going out for a pre-arranged tour & not once did they come to check to see if I was OK, needed water - nothing.
The location is a bit "seedy". You have to nivigate past the markets & down a couple of alleys, ill lit & smelly.
There is no internet, no fridge in the room, no tv, no telephone!!!!
No smiles, no welcoming feel!!!.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Riad Moucharabieh and it was an absolutely beautiful riad. Upon arrival we were greeted by our hospitable hosts who offered mint tea, dried fruit, and nuts and we felt immediately welcomed. You really get the feeling that you will be well taken care of. There were fresh roses adorning the jacuzzi, which was a bit strangely arranged in the center of the courtyard, but pretty nonetheless. Our room was very spacious and there were rose petals on the towels placed before the shower (and even in the toilet!), such a nice little gesture! The mosaic shower was gorgeous, a piece of art in itself. Since I have a gluten allergy and can't eat bread, Majid prepared an omelette for me both mornings, and that was much appreciated. The location was good, right in the middle of a market, with an internet cafe very close by, and not too far from the Djemma el-Fna. It was very quiet within the riad and we were able get a couple of good nights' rest.

We stayed here for 7 nights on B&B basis.Welcome and explanation very good and sure that for 1 night it's OK but we noticed that this place needs a good refurb..it's got that Arab mystique,sure but you notice the peeling paint,the fountain that leaks on the terrace and the blast from the nearest mosque @ 3 and 5 am!Dinner was offered @ 35 Euros/person and some other UK guests,who had been there a few days,told us that the tajine was swimming in oil and the wine was awful..you can eat far better and much cheaper at loads of places in the Medina
The room was smaller than expected with terribly low lighting(so you can't see the poor state of decoration!) and the shower was poor.The location is off a side street from the market and you have to put up with the bikes,scooters etc which seem to want to knock you down all the time!
The staff,however,were very good,from Majid one of the managers to the cleaning lady,very polite and nothing was too much trouble.We were not charged for a load of beers which we had each night.
Breakfasts were boring..the same thing every morning and not too tasty either.For the price we paid we could have stayed in super luxury in the Sofitel! Had a better hotel in Fes,which was a tour group property and had half board for half the price of this riad!
Won't be going there again.

Stayed in Marrakech for 3 nites; had excellent breakfast daily; comp wine and goodies before dinner; ate one excellent dinner there. Staff good. Make sure you know what is included and what is free. Leave nothing unclear. Approach to riad is unappealing but once you are inside, excellent. Reasonable priced. Great roof garden facility. One minute walk into medina. Watch out for crazy motorcycle drivers there. Off season for tourism. Nice time to go. After New Years prices go down.

Excellent Riad, staff helpful, gorgeous sitting areas, reading rooms, library, and pool. Comfortable beds, nice fluffy towels. Neat, tidy, fresh roses everywhere. Dedicated cleaing staff, no dust bunnies! We found breakfast to be different daily over our 5 days. Location easy to get to since its on the edge of the Medina. Take a right at the spice stall with the large piles of cumin and lavender and go down the narrow street. We were booked into this Riad by our tour "Experience It" who handles Morocco exclusively and I have to say they choose very well for us. There were three of us in our group and the staff was very accomodating. Very much enjoyed sitting around the Riad in the evening with a glass of wine, a welcome retreat after our shopping excursions and ventures to the mountains. Riad has two large courtyards with the library and reading rooms, flanking them, easy to get privacy and quiet if you choose so. Would go back, no question.
