Riad Amira Victoria
Ranked #474 of 1,167 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stayed here as a family of 5 with very young kids, and had a great time. The riad is a small, family run operation in the small streets of downtown Marrakech. Finding it is hard without either a good map or a mapping app with GPS on your smartphone. The traditional building is beautiful with rooms clustered around two courtyards. There is also a nice roof terrace. Our rooms were small but very nicely decorated and clean and had arconditioning. We had two connected rooms over two floors which worked out perfectly with kids. The baby crib we had ordered was waiting for us when we arrived. On a Ramadan week-end the streets around the Riad were busy until after midnight, but the noise wasn't too bad. Free Wifi worked great. Overall highly recommended!

So when we arrived it was pretty late. Got dropped off by taxi on a road and taken to riad by a random guy who knew where the riad was. During the walk a few other guys had decided to also show us. After reaching the riad we was demanded to give them 200 dirhams ! Shouting and abusing at us. Pretty scary experience for a first night. Anyway if you are arriving late arrange taxi service with the hotel to avoid random people hassling you. The riad is very hard to find if you are not familiar with marrakech. Part from that everything else was perfect.

The property, though hard to locate (ask at the spice store) is well furnished and has an authentic feel. Breakfast on the roof garden is lovely, if a bit random, and alcoholic drinks can be purchased in the evenings (with some effort) and brought up here for a nice bit of star-gazing. The porter is helpful but speaking french is a real advantage. At the end of my stay the owner decided to rip me off by converting the moroccan price into euros and then back into dirahms with brutal and contradictory exchange rates, I refused to allow this mad and blatant scam, instead offering to pay in the dirham price as advertised and agreed by e-mail (a copy of which I had) this was met with a threat to call the police, so, fearing missing my flight I paid up, but would caution anyone else to avoid this place.

Room Tip: whatever you do don't stay by the entrance hallway, you'll be woken up at 04:00

Although this Riad is beautiful, the location and hospitality leave a lot to be desired. Absolutely no welcome or information about the facilities given. No English spoken by any of the staff. An extremely grumpy doorman who seems to have a problem with people coming back after 7pm. A little challenging to even get them to answer the doorbell, which is disconcerting when you have people hassling you on the street. We arrived via the train station and none of the taxi drivers had any idea where the hotel was located. Navigating the labyrinth of streets in the Medina is tricky day or night and the distance from the square makes it more difficult for anyone wanting to soak up the fabulous atmosphere at night. We arranged transport to the train station through the Riad and they failed to inform us that the train was no longer running at that time, consequently we missed our flight and are delayed 24 hours. My advise stay closer to the square and venture out to further parts in daylight hours, not stumble through deserted souks late at night.

This is a well-located riad, just around 5 minutes away from the busy souks an the place Jemaa el fna. We visited Marrakech as a couple and it was truly a romantic, atmospheric place to stay at.
I especially loved the delicious Moroccan breakfast at the sunny roof terrace with an amazing view of the medina and the snow-covered peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Also, I recommend to make reservations for dinner at the hotel ( book the day before or in the morning of the same day) - the food is really worth it!
Furthermore, the staff was very friendly and polite, as well as the friendly, helpful manager, who speaks at least 5 languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Arabian...).

I would love to come back to this lovely little riad!

Many tourists to Marrakech are more than happy to spend a few days in the sun in a luxury purpose-built hotel either in the new town or on the outskirts of the medina. They can enjoy all the comforts these hotels offer, have English speaking staff, the security of a tour representative, and having ventured into Jemaa el Fna and the Souks for a few hours with hotel transport provided, share their experiences with other English speaking guests.
However, if your idea of a holiday to Morocco is to immerse yourself in the culture of the country then you won't find better accommodation than the Riad Amira Victoria. Your sense of adventure will be tested from the very start! Finding this Riad in the Northern Medina amongst the labyrinth of alleyways; not being knocked down by cyclist, motorbike, or cart whenever you venture out; and of course not being parted of your money by every conceivable trick most male Marrakechis will bombard you with should you pause in the street for a split second to look at a map or gaze in a shop window. Survive this, then you will be tough enough to turn a blind eye to the eccentricities of the Amira Victoria. These include:- no overt greeting on arrival, no helpful welcome pack in your room ( you have to find out for yourself remembering any French you learnt at school ), the one-way mirrors from your bedroom into the courtyard, and the lack of heating in the dining room for the duration of our seven nights half board stay gave rise to memories of feeling cold rather than the quality of the varied meals.

Instead and hopefully, your favourite memories from this Riad will be the alfresco breakfasts on the roof terrace (individual bays for each room) with views of the snow-capped Atlas mountains in clear blue skies whilst being served by the consummate professional Mustafa dressed in his pristine black uniform, white gloves, and occasionally sporting a red Fez.

That's a memory to go with your Moroccan adventure.

Room Tip: Avoid the two smaller rooms on the ground floor.

Merely two blocks away from the throbbing maze of the Medina, this is the perfect refuge from which to visit the city. Elegant and very authentic moroccan ambient, very polite staff, good food and its very own spa where you should really enjoy a soothing hammam. The manager is extremely friendly, helpful, engaging and fluent in many languages.
We were made to feel very welcome indeed. There are only 12 rooms, so you will feel at home immediately. But although the building is small you will find an amazing number of terraces, balconies and private corners where you can enjoy some privacy.
Full breakfast served on the terrace upstairs, includes baguette bread, pancake, croissants, fresh orange juice, boiled egg, yoghurt, butter, jam and coffe (quite strong) or tea. Varies a bit, but not by much.
Dinner is served in the very cozy lounge and feels like it has been cooked at home for you. delicious, ample portions.
Altogetther a very satisfying experience. The photos on the website, although nice, don't completely convey the ambience.
Highly recommended for a couple or small group of friends as a nesting point in this fascinating city.
