“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Single female traveler, first time to N. Africa. Spent 4 nights at this AMAZING gem. Simplistic accommodations in a prime location. Staff is STELLAR!! Food delightful!! The souks were just steps away and so was the square. I was in the heart of the Medina, and could ask for nothing else. Oh and that mint tea, YUMM!!

We spent a wonderful 2 nights at this Riad, it is located right in the heart of Marrakesh, 10 Minutes from the main Square (which is full of life) and only a few minutes walk from the Souks. Even though it is in the middle of hustle and bustle of Marrakesh it is nice and quiet in the Riad and the great thick walls keep the building cool from the penetrating sun :) breakfast on the terrace was gorgeous with cinnamon flavoured coffee will keep you going throughout the day
Beautiful mint tea and biscuits on arrival were very special after the flight and the heat. The Bed was also nice and comfortable, I usually do not sleep well when I am not in my own bed, but I had no problems in this Riad and slept wonderfully. The staff were great and extremely helpful with directions and recommendations, and always cheerful and smiling :).
Well recommended for the Marrakesh experience.

An excellent riad, run by extremely kind staff. The entrance of the riad is located in a dark, narrow alley, so that it could be easily missed when first getting to the hotel. My room's door had no lock, neither other rooms' doors I suspect, which is something rather odd. The inner patio and the terrace - where breakfast is served - are amazingly beautiful and quiet. Jama'a al Fna square is at 10 min walk across Medina, and the souq area is really very close. I would highly recommend Noor Charana to travellers that look for unexpensive, quiet, guest friendly hotel in Marrakech's medina

A fabulously comfortable and excellently decorated Riad. From the mint tea on arrival with a Medina map and advice, right through to an early breakfast on our final day, Rene was an excellent host. The bed was comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and varied and the Riad is only 10 minutes walk to the main square which is very easy to find. Fantastic value, can't recommend it enough.

This place is amazing but we never would have found it if we didn't have a guide who we tipped 20DH to get us here. Marrakesh can be overwhelming but you feel like you are transported elsewhere when you get behind these doors. There is a tranquil atmosphere and a beautiful rooftop terrace for tea and breakfast. The rooms are subtly decorated and so comfortable and the staff are so gentle and kind. We thoroughly recommend a stay here.

The Riad is not easy to locate but once you are there all will be fantastic.
It offers a perfect value accommodation. Rooms are big and nicely decorated.
The staff is really friendly, helpful and makes you feel at home.
I loved the breakfast with fantastic food changing daily on the terrace prepared with love by the owner.
The riad is also very nice and has a nice patio and chill-out area :)
Location is great as in a few minutes you can reach the big square El Fna and the Souks.

The only think we were disappointed with was the internet connection. There is NO wi-fi in the room and if you need internet there is a shared computer in the patio. However, it wasnt a big deal as we wanted to fully enjoy the city and forget emails & stuff.

The approach to Riad al-Noor is a bit difficulty. I don't think you could find it if you were arriving at night or didn't arrange to have the hotel staff meet you out front. But in the midst of the bustling Medina, it was amazing to walk into the clean, white quite of the this beautiful Riad. Moha, our host, and the rest of the staff could not have been kinder. We had some special meal needs (vegetarian, low-carb) that they worked with us to meet. Our rooms were just lovely.

We ended up spending more time at the riad than we anticipated because some of our party got a bit sick during our stay. Moha was great about going to get us medicine and providing us with some snacks during the day.

We highly recommend staying here!
