Riad Soumia

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We stayed here for four nights and loved it. Great hospitality from the team and a fantastic peaceful retreat after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. It is close to the main square but far enough away to feel like an escape from the centre. Highly recommended.

We were in Marrakesh for two nights and this was the perfect place to stay! Andre, Abdullah, and the rest of the staff were great. Sorry we missed Christine. The Riad was in the best location. In the middle of everything. Andre gave us great suggestions (ie, excellent Indian restaurant, Les Jardins de Bala). Rooms were nice and comfortable and the courtyard was lovely. Definitely will recommend this Riad to my friends and family! Our tour guide Fouzia was excellent too! Great recommendation Andre! Thank you again for everything!

Andre, Christine and their staff, Abdullah and Zahira, were the most hospitable hosts. The impeccable service and suggestions made for a wonder stay in Marrakech. We spent 3 nights in a triple room. The rooms are spotless and the beds were comfortable. We were able to enjoy happy hour in the courtyard and relax from the day of shopping and sightseeing. The riad is within walking distance to Jemaa el-Fnaa and all of the souks in the medina. Breakfast was very good consisting of freshly made yogurt, breads, jams, cheese, and fresh juice and coffee. The hosts paid special attention to each guest. Christine was very helpful in booking spa appointments and dinner reservations/suggestion. If visiting Marrakech, I recommend you consider staying at the Riad Soumia.

We stayed there for 4 days and we highly recommend you this hidden and lovely riad. It is very quiet among the birds...
The owners Christine and Andre welcome us with mint tea and home made pastries and make us feel at home. Their advice and suggestions help us in medina and day trips.
We appreciate their hospitality. The bedrooms are spacious, and particularly home made yogurt for breakfast

I would highly recommend this beautifully restored riad for a place to stay. A wonderful welcome from the owners Christine and Andre warm smiles from the staff. We spent 4 nights here and its central position was fantastic for the hustle and bustle of life in Marrakech. The owners gladly gave us suggestions of things to do and places to see. We will definately return
