Reviewed February 16, 2013

A nice very central located hotel in Marrakech. Everything was quite nice and worked nicely. We have breakfast and lunch on the hotel and the food was good. The rooms are not big but clean. The staff is nice and some serviceminded. Our paid ride from the airport to the hotel was only 1 hour late:-).

Dear Guest,
thanks for taking the time to dedicate us a review.
We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the appreciation of the service of our team.
The Riad offers a variety of different sized rooms and accordingly different rates.
We are very sorry for the delay of your transfer from the airport.
As you may remember the conditions of the weather the day of your arrival caused delay to most of the flights landing in Marrakech.
Many flights arrival time were postponed several times causing a bit of confusion in the planning of the transfers from the airport.
Hope you ll excuse us for the inconvenience caused.
Wishing to have you among our guest in the future, best regards
Massimo and Giorgina

Giorgina and Massimo are warm and natural hosts, making our first visit to Marrakech much easier than it may otherwise have been. We were greeted at the nearest car park to the Riad where Giorgina was waiting with a porter to help with our bags. It's only a couple of minutes walk to the Riad and all the way Giorgina pointed out directions and memorable signposts so you don't get lost in the tangle of narrow alleys. The Riad itself is beautiful with very tasteful decor and the welcoming scent of orange blossom as soon as you leave the dusty little alley way outside and step in. On arrival you are greeted with glasses of mint tea, little biscuits, tangerines and a very useful introduction and map to what can be an intimidating town.
We stayed in two rooms, the Rubis room on the ground floor - small, comfortable and (I think) the cheapest option and on our return from a few days in Essaouira, we had a couple of nights in the Corail room in the first floor, larger, lighter and just gorgeous!
Even in early Feb you can eat breakfast on the terrace each morning served by the multi lingual staff. The selection is tea or coffee with freshly made yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, a variety of breads and the offer of eggs how you like them.
If you choose to eat dinner here, let them know in the morning and prepare to be spoiled! We were served a very generous mix of salads followed by delicious tagine and fresh fruit jelly. Afternoons on the terrace after hectic haggling in the nearby souks are accompanied by mint tea on request. Nothing is too much trouble.
Le Clos Des Arts really is an oasis of calm and we very much appreciated the obvious thought and care that goes into making everyone's stay here special and memorable.
Thank you Georgina, Massimo and Team.

I just returned from Marrakech and recommend this wonderful Riad to everyone! The food is exquisite (we ate dinner here two of our 4 nights in Marrakech) and the service is incomparable. Giorgina gave us wonderful recommendations for the nights we did venture outside of the Riad and also set up our excursion into the desert which was perfect. Beautiful accommodations, great location, and you truly feel like you are a guest in someone's home.

We are really looking forward to our trip to Marrakech. From reading reviews on TA we decided we'd love to stay at this Riad. We couldn't find any availability so e-mailed the hotel direct. Giorgina and Massimo were able to offer us accommodation for part of our stay. They have also been able to give us so much useful information on the options for the things we would like to do and try while we are in Marrakech. Local knowledge and experience is so useful in planning a trip.

Rather cheekily I asked if they could recommend another place to stay for the remainder of our trip - and they did - giving us a range of choices they were happy to suggest.(We settled on Riad Azoulay, that also looks lovely.)

We haven't even reached Marrakech and I think I have had the most attentive service I have ever received.

Many thanks to Giorgina and Massimo. We are so looking forward to meeting you and experiencing your Riad.

Just returned from a blissful 5 days in this quiet, intimate and well run Riad. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is provided with a smile and good grace. The food is outstanding, rooms extremely comfortable, and the roof terrace inviting and restful.
It is conveniently located to the main square, and as others have said, the owners and staff are wonderfully helpful and attentive. I will definitely be returning and would recommend it to anyone.

I have just returned from a wonderful stay at the Clos des Arts - the Riad is beautiful and the attention to detail incredible. Giorgina & Massimo are the most friendly and helpful hosts and all the staff are eager to please. The food is absolutely delicious and the surroundings make you want to just relax there all day, but there is so much to see in Marrakech and Giorgina arranged everything for us. A really great experience - I hope to be back!

I can't remember how many times I have been to Riad Clos des Arts but I think it is about 8 times in the last three years. It is perfection. I have been with my husband, with my sons, with friends and just recently with 7 others and we took over the whole Riad. Georgina and Massimo are perfectionists and the Riad is fabulous and very good value for money. Couldn't speak more highly of it. But don't tell anyone otherwise there won't be room for me when I next want to go!!
