“1001 Arabian Nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Riad Fabiola and enjoyed the calmnes in the riad.
The great and lovely staff took very good care of us. Aziz will provide you with at the whereabouts in the city and Naima the cook is THE sweetest person. Every evening she amazed us with a very tasteful and good looking dinner. Experience here cooking your sell.
We had a great stay, enjoyed the hospitality and hope to visit soon again!

Stayed in June .Used their airport pick up service but could find riad with local taxi if you had a better map of where it was and this would be cheaper.Riad is close to main square 10 mins walk felt quite safe walking back even at night.Lovely riad plenty of character in the decor, although some furnishings could do with being replaced,eg cushions on sofas were dirty.
Staff were helpful welcomed with mint tea,given maps and info on area.Not all the staff speak English so can be a problem if you don't speak any French.
Stopped in the Rose room which was fine except the bed was very hard and the safe boxes do not work.There is a nice roof patio to sit out on, needed as it was very hot in June.Indoor pool looked a bit cloudy so wouldn't fancy using it.Breakfast was a bit boring ,bread ,cake ,pancakes every day.Some fresh fruit would be nice.Overall the riad was fine, reasonable value for money, and in an ideal location

The staff here are helpful, the riad and pool and lovely, the rooms have a lot of character and the breakfast is great. For the price, I think this riad was excellent and a very pleasant surprise (we were slightly wary due to some negative reviews on here).

There is a mosque quite near by, but you are in morocco, so you are never far from one.

With regards to location - it is a 10 min walk to the main square. We walked back late at night and I never felt threatened or unsafe. However, I cannot say the same would be true if I was on my own (young female).

We were welcomed by Azziz in the reception who brought us a cup of mint tea and a map of the place too with all the directions and details we needed.

He was available throughout the weekend to assist with any queries we had. There were builders working next door to our room one morning and after I went to complain, he immediately went to ask them to stop, which they did, and we were able to snooze a bit longer.

The room, Indigo Suite, was lovely and clean with a comfortable bed too, and we felt rested after staying there and we really enjoyed the room.

The only thing is that you hear a very loud call to prayer from 4 am to 5am 3x in the morning, (this is during Ramadan) but if you don't mind that it is very quiet and and you can relax on the three level balconies where they have sofas with cushions throughout your stay there

Riad Fabiola is about 15-20 mins walk to the main square, not 10 mins as advertised.

Over all enjoyed our stay very much although we did not want to have a dip in the little pool despite it being 40 degrees!! it looked a bit cloudy...

Room Tip: We stayed in the Suite Indigo, which was very clean and perfect for a couple as you have a little lo...

Based 5-10 minute walk from the old town we found this Riad very friendly and welcoming. Our initial thoughts were concern as the street looks pretty dodgy, but after a day in Marakech you realise that its all reasonably safe. Our room was large and pretty clean, the breakfasts were lovely. Good value for the price.
