“Great Riad, Just like photos on Trip Advisor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Riad Al Jazira is a great authentic Riad in the heart of the Medina. This was our first time in Morocco and I wanted to get the real feel of this city. My only recommendation is not to stay there if you have small children. I didn't feel so safe walking outside of the Riad, and would have stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel. There is a lot of haggling, and everyone wants money for helping you. Not to mention that this place is like a maze and impossible to find. We were totally lost with my girls in tow and they wanted 20 euros to walk us 5 blocks through the maze of the medina to our hotel.
The rooms are very clean, comfortable and the Riad is beautiful. Loved the mint tea- sugar is added so make sure to say no sugar if you don't like sugar.

My son and his wife both work for the UN like I did myself,and their lonely marriage down in Liberia last year needed a family follow up reunion.So we were some 80 people from all over assembled there last weekend for an awesome fiesta.The sundown rooftop cocktail party, the services as well as food and drink was overwhelming,as is the included breakfast and ordered food.
The rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable and everything works,but having the even colder winternights to come in mind,I suspect that the split type air con. units may not be able to cope(they may have added solutions of course)-especially as there are no window panes,only traditionel arab light openings-which leads me to the only complaint I could think of:
namely the very noisy staff-from very early on competing with some birds with extremely shrill voices-the latter maybe being harder to muffle.
But Marrakesh is surely worth a voyage and I can recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Take rather a room to the poolside than towards the entrance

This delightful small Riad is well decorated and furnished in traditional style. The bedrooms are small but comfortable and most are around one of the courtyards. Fabulous views of sunsets from the roof. Breakfasts are very good and the staff are really friendly and helpful. You need a guide to find this place as it is tucked away down one of the many alleys, but it is well worth the few minutes walk dragging your suitcase from the nearest place the taxi can stop!

I think the proviso here is that this is a clean, stylish Riad for the price. It has everything you need, and once you get your bearings, its in a good position and is a haven of tranquillity from the chaos outside. There are better, more glamorous places to stay but if you're on a budget this is the one. Our only disappointment was the dinner which was not good and expensive and in a rather soulless setting, so I would advise eating out.

The riad is beautiful, with great breakfast and nice people. Very good value for money.

The service could be better, but they were all very kind and helpful. Our room was very good but in the morning a little bit noisy because of the breakfasts and the swimming water running.

We had an awesome stay in Riad Al Jazeira in November 2013.
This is a small and very nice riad located in the middle of the heart of Marrakesh.
An oasis of silence out of the hectic and fast city-life of this big and beautiful city at Marocco.
It is well located, very calm, to "la place" you have to walk about 15 min. but easy to find and it is perfect to
see and feel the real life in the streets of marrakesh.
The staff and people around there are very very friendly and at this place you can explore
the real marrocian life at its best.
And thanks to Khalid, he served the breakfast and even learned us some arabic words and was
always there for us. The man at the reception Hamid organzied a nice trip to the atlas mountain
and the women at hamam and massage they made our stay really perfect.
This nice place is also recommended at the very famous magazin GEO, this is how we heard about
this place. "...pool with filmset-quality and a very large rooftop for a whole croud of people..." - this is really true.
We really want to come back to enjoy some days again at this oriental paradise.
Thanks a lot, Felix and Fina

A beautiful classic Riad in the Northern Medina. Tucked away but only about 15 minutes stroll from the main square once you've worked out how to find your way round. Very traditional, spotlessly clean. The place itself is fantastic but it's the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff that makes it so special. From a great evening meal to freshly squeezed orange juice on the roof terrace everything is possible and nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: We had a 'prestige' room on the first floor which was spacious, cool and comfortable - well...
