“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We arrived to Marrakesh and had a booking on a different Riad but it was one huge problem. The Riad didn't exist so we had a problem, we had no living arrangement for our first night in Marrakesh.
Then we say a door with the name Riad Amin and we were lucky, they had a room available and we were overwelmed by the personal who were really nice to us. The room was great, the service was good and the mood of the staff was great.

Overall good quality Riad with perfect location in Marrakesh.

I had a fairly average experience in Marrakesh, but it was made much better by Riad Amin. The hotel is very well located, only 5 walk from the center of town, meaning everything is in walking distance. It is set back down a small alleyway, meaning that it is very tranquil. Indeed, the interior has a very oasis feel to it. (Marrakesh can be quite overwhelming, so the oasis nature of Riad Amin is *even more* welcome.)

The rooms are beautifully appointed (one might even say adorable) and the common area downstairs is simply gorgeous. It was exceptionally comfortable. The Riad also has a lovely roofdeck, and the staff are happy to serve you breakfast up there. It is a pleasant place to sit and hang out. The staff are very friendly (and are keen for everyone to join them in watching football).

The only problem was that my room safe malfunctioned, and so it required a manager to bring a master key from Casablanca, meaning that I was separated from my valuables for longer than a neurotic individual like myself is comfortable with. It took about 36 hours to resolve the problem, and in retrospect the staff handled it as well as could be expected and I learned a valuable lesson. But that experience, though nerve-wracking, did not subtract from my overall experience at Riad Amin. I would *definitely* return there again ... though maybe I might eschew using the room safe next time.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. The rooms are small but thats because the beds are huge and also equipped with egyptian cotton sheets. A very nice touch.
There is a little plunge pool in the courtyard, however it was too chilly as we were quite early in the season.

We had a lovely Tagine for lunch provided by the riad, which was huge and could probably have fed twice the amount of people.

I stayed in a room on the roof, so unless you are feeling strong, do get the staff to help you will your bags, which they are more than happy to do so.

The only faults are its a little further from the main square than other riads and is you are staying on a weekend the credit card machines dont really work some bring some cash to pay for your stay.

With traditional architecture the interior Is nicely decorated. The bathroom is nicely fitted with brass fittings. I liked the style. However, the room I stayed was bit small fitted with a bed that has large metal frame at the bottom. I stumbled with the frame and got hurt several times. The wooden doors seemed not enough to give a feeling of security. We had a nice breakfast.

It was now for the second time I stayed in this adorable little Riad Amin near the Royal Palace and opposite the Sahadian Tombs. The location is ideal as it's a bit set off the full buzz but still only a five to ten minute walk to Djemaa-El-Fna. The Sahadian Tombs are across the street.
The Staff super friendly, competent and very attentive. Anything you ask them gets taken care of straight away.
Upon arrival one receives a warm welcome with a pot of famous peppermint tee and Moroccan biscuits. From that moment onward the rush we come from ceases.
The rooms and suits are all tastefully and individually decorated. The roof terrace is spacious and offers a wonderful view over Marrakech and beautiful sunsets.There's not a too much or too little. There are the odd small appliances that might need a little bit of fixing and adjusting but in the end one has to bare in mind that this is Morocco and a part of Africa...Things take more time to be done and that sense of more time is what we visitors appreciate, no?!

Room Tip: Some rooms are smaller than others. Depending on the length of stay you might want to chose a bigger...

Myself and my girlfriend went to Marrakech in Summer 2012 and we trawled trip advisor for a riad to stay while we were. The city itself was beautiful and often sapped you of your energy and it was a delight to return to the riad amin in Kasbah, a perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of the Djaama El Fna. The staff could not do enough for you and were always on hand when you required any assistance. Breakfast was served as and when you arose and it was fresh and served with a smile. The room was fantastic and a typical riad sized room with a bathroom that was a pleasure to shower in. The riad did have it's own pool but we opted to venture elsewhere as it didn't receive a huge amount of sunshine. The location of the Riad is perfect if you want to be just that perfect distance from the centre, a 5 - 10 minute walk and safe at all times of the day. Fantastic views from the roof of the Kasbah Mosque and sun loungers on the roof which catches the sun all day. Would definitely recommend and a big thank you to the staff there.

Room Tip: stating the obvious but room quality increases in price, contact the riad directly for discounts as...
