“Excellent, perfect - and Elsa:-)”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

What a fantastic perfect excellent first time in Marrakech. Riad W, our host Elsa the most wonderful lady, and her very nice, serviceminded staff of 3 girls.
Excellent breakfast, excellent dinner - Elsa is there for you to help you in any way - when you arrive, she will make sure that you from the beginning feel at home:-). Take you to the square the first time, a 4 min walk - if you want to be in the authentic Medina in the middle of everything choose Riad W. When you come back after a long day of mystery and adventure, RIad W is the most peaceful and beautiful place to relaxe.
My daughter and I will come back very soon - we already miss Elsa and her wonderfuld home Riad W.
Thank you so much Elsa!

Only 5 minutes walk from "La Place" you will find this hidden paradise. Riad W is an elegant gem of Marracech dusty alleys, it was a great feeling to come home after long days of shopping in the teeming labyrinths forming town. All is quiet (no minaret nearby), nice and quiet, the whole place breathes grace and elegance, we were more than happy with our week in this place, highly recommend to all who wants to enjoy their holiday and their room.

Riad W is a lovely place to stay. Elsa has managed to create such a gorgeous place with such a stunning courtyard which was great to sit in after a 'hard' day out in the thick of it. The Riad felt both traditional and contemporary and its stylish and yet still felt cosy.

When we arrived Elsa kindly upgraded us as it was quite that part of the week which we were very grateful for. The room and ensuite was very spacious and we would have breakfast in the courtyard itself, or if too hot in the dining room that leads onto the courtyard, that had really comfy purple sofas. The staff were lovely too and always greeted us with a warm smile in the mornings and when we got back in the evenings. I also think the location is pretty perfect for exploring the city as you're just minutes away from the main square, but far enough away to feel that you're away from the frenetic nature of the city and can actually relax.

We loved it. Location is great - 3m walking to the main square. Service is excellent - Elsa and her staff. The Riad is perfect - simple and tranquil!

I can't recommend this highly enough. My partner & I, (both 30), were recommended this Riad by friends. They cited the great host, Elsa and great food as the reasons. They were totally right. On arrival, Elsa had upgraded us, as the Riad was quiet during our stay. We ate in on the first night and were not disappointed - waited on hand & foot, in tranquil surroundings. The Riad itself is a contrast to the busy Marrakech surroundings - tasteful in it's design and furnishings - mostly white walls and polished cement. (In a good way). You will not be disappointed if you stay here. We weren't.

Located within the Medina, Riad W is a beautifully restored Raid combining both contemporary and modern designs. We had two rooms for 2 nights. The Suite was very spacious and decorated nicely. The open courtyard had a lounging area and a dipping pool which was a treat for our daughter. Elsa was not their, however the lady who was looking after was very helpful and always smiling which is something you want to see when you are with family and kids. Breakfast was good with a selection of bread, yogurt and traditional Moroccan crepes. Mint tea is available upon request and always goes down well! Location is perfect. a 5-10 minute walk to the main square but away from the hustle and bustle which is important as people are out wandering the square till very late! Overall a very nice and pleasant experience, highly recommended

After my stay at the Riad W last november, my longing for that place made me fly back to Marrakesh and enjoy it again.
To be able to live in such a quiet and sweet place, beiing in the middle of the city, so close to the medina , wich transports you back in time is a marvel.
I simply adore it !
therefore, I highly recomend this experience, with all the magic it involves, with Hammams, good food and mystery.
At the riad , I felt like a princess, so well taken care of a the girls working there and the Hostes, who really is absolutly helpfull in all ways !
