“An amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stayed at the Riad Noir D'Ivoire for 3 nights and attended a friend private party. It was truly a wonderful experience. First of all the location is great. In the middle of the Medina you can walk everywhere. The staff was very kind and helpful. You have in this Riad everything you can think of, a pool, a spa, a library, a lovely bar, a shop.They have a delicious breakfast with a wonderful home made yougourt. The atmosphere is very special, very cosy and intimate. The room are very spacious and nicely decorated.
We highly recommend the Riad Noir D'Ivoire, it worth the trip.

We stayed for 4 nights and this place managed to exceed our expectations despite being ranked number one on this site.
Its run by lovely people who genuinely could not do more for you.
The breakfasts were lovely, the best mint tea we had during our stay. (we had many )
It was not difficult to find our way to and from the Riad , but you are lent a mobile phone to call them if you get lost or need any help in any way. (we never used it in 5 days)
The staff will also escort you to any local restaurants or shops.
Marrakech is lovely, welcoming, and a fascinating place but I believe we enjoyed the experience more from staying at the Noir d'Ivoire

Room Tip: If you are a first time visitor to Marrakech read this site so you know what to expect when you arri...

The arrival sets the scene. A walk down a narrow high walled street in the Medina to a doorway that gives no real hint of what lies behind, but passing through is right out of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” – a magical world opens up. My wife and I were there for a private party and what can I say – the modern-with-respect-for-the-past architecture generally but the two courtyards as romantic as it gets, top flight food and service, everything was perfect in fact. Simply the most romantic small luxury hotel we have ever seen.

My friend and I came to stay at the Noir d'Ivoire for a short stay before Christmas. We were met by Mohammed - the wonderful taxi driver that we used throughout our trip. Mohammed brought us into the Medina and one of the helpful Riad staff met us along with Couscous the donkey to bring our bags along the labyrinthine passages to the Noir d'Ivoire. The Managers' Rebeca and Damien met us at the entrance and immediately made us very welcome. They both have a great knowledge of all the different experiences that are available in Marrakech and discussed our needs and advised and made arrangements. The bedroom was very comfortable and throughout the Riad there was a vibe of understated elegance.

Room Tip: All the rooms are highly individual . The room we stayed in overlooked the internal courtyard and wa...

My boyfriend and I spent an unforgettable weekend at the Riad Noir d' Ivoire, early in December. We had been invited to a private birthday party which took place at the Riad.
As soon as we arrived at the Riad, the friendly staff made us feel at home and welcome. At the same time the Riad itself put us in an atmosphere of elegance, romance and absolutely in peace of mind. It was indeed the perfect place to relax from the relative chaos of Marrakech.
The decor is refined, a mingle of a modern and a Moroccan style. It makes all your senses travel back in the old time of Marrakech and at the same time you can enjoy all the luxuries you could possibly desire. It has an indoor and outdoor ( heated) swimming pool and a spa.
The food was amazing, cooked and prepared in the Riad from its own chef.
The service is great in every possible way. Rebecca and Damian, were great hosts, very helpful and gave us a lot of useful tips and advice.
Its location is perfect as well, on a quiet street, but within walking distance of the main market Jemma El Fnaa and the adjoining Souks.
Can't wait to visit again Morocco and of course to stay at that beautiful and lovely Riad Noir d' Ivoire.
Thank you all over there for such a wonderful time. See you soon!

We stayed at this place for three nights in January 2013. Riad Noir d'Ivoire proofed to be a very good place for our family. The best part for us was the roof terrace which is an oasis in the otherwise wild and crazy Marrakech. Spa Treatments were also fine and staff was extremely friendly and helpful at all time. The Riad has a modern and beautiful style setting.

There are a couple of things to consider before you go there though:

- There are 4 to 5 cats around living in the hotel. If you are allergic to cats as I am you may want to look for another place in Marrakech
- Our room was very beautiful but also with some open space to the lobby with noise and light emissions til late in the evening and early in the morning
- Breakfast was excellent but sloooow. We needed 60-90 minutes for the breakfast and if you are short of time this might make you unhappy.

We recently stayed at the Riad Noire D'Ivoire and would highly recommend
it. When you first arrive in the Medina you're met with the hustle and
bustle (which you soon get used to) but as soon as you enter the Riad Noire
D'Ivoire it provides a complete contrast - a sanctuary of peace and luxury. The
Riad itself is very well appointed and atmospheric (we couldn't stop taking
photos of the place!) and for us was exactly what we were hoping for in
terms of how a Moroccan Riad should feel. We stayed in the Cameleon Room
which was perfect for what we wanted and again very nicely decorated with
local themes. The Riad has a nice pool and bar together with a beautiful
inner courtyard area around which the rooms are based. There's also a
lovely roof terrace where you can have freshly made breakfast every day as
the sun comes up and the city awakes. The service is attentive and the
staff very pleasant. Above all Rebeca is a wonderful hostess and ensures
that all her guests are made welcome and that they're aware of the many
options that Marrakech has to offer. Rebeca took the time to give us
directions, provide tips on dos and don'ts in the Medina, book restaurants
and day trips and look after our transportation (which included Cous Cous
the donkey pulling our luggage). Rebeca even arranged for us to be
escorted by a staff member a couple of times to ensure we found our way.
All Rebeca and Damien's recommendations worked out really well. The Riad
is probably about a 10-15 minute walk to the main Square and about a 5
minute walk to catch a cab if going outside the Medina so everything is
within easy reach. All in all we had a very memorable stay in Marrakech
and this was largely down to the Riad Noire D'Ivoire
