Riad Djebel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We received a welcome email shortly after booking and Sylvian was quite responsive to email in the weeks leading up to the trip. They arranged for pickup from the airport and train station and our arrival was (relatively--only due to hiccups on our part) seamless.

You don't need a guide or tour to navigate life inside the walls--Miguel showed us to the square (approx 10 min walk), spent several minutes going over a map with us and it was quite easy to get around once we got our bearings. We were able to walk to see all of the sites, with the exception of the Jardins to which we took a taxi. The riad is located down a couple of alleys but we found it without trouble and never felt unsafe coming back at night (2 female travelers).

Nothing but kind words to say about the hospitality and quality of the accommodations. Also recommend having at least one dinner here--the chicken tajine was better than the restaurants and cheaper! Note, there is no view of the medina from the rooftop as some of the reviews seem to indicate; the roof is amazing but the walls are high and in peering over you see a sea of satellite dishes. Not a downside, just don't expect to be people watching from the roof. The rooms themselves also do not have windows (but do have A/C). Wireless is pretty strong, better in the downstairs common area than in the room or on the roof we found.


Ask to see the photos from before the renovations, what they did with the place was amazing!

Room Tip: all of the rooms are nice. we had a suite which had a lovely bathroom with a bath big enough for 2...

We stayed at Riad Djebel for four nights. We got in quite late the first night, a taxi driver picked us up at the airport and we were greeted by Mustapha. He was really nice and made us delicious egg crepes because we were starving. The place is really beautiful. Our room was on the first floor and it was so serene and relaxing after a day out in Marrakech, which is such a contrast. Marisa (a friend of Sylvain, owner) showed us around and walked us to the main square and made sure we knew the ropes of Marrakech before we went our own ways. She's was so helpful and fun to talk with day in and day out. Her and Mustapha helped plan a day trip to Imlil, a city surrounded by five Berbere villages. We hiked to a waterfall, stopped by a Berbere market, and even got a dromedary (camel with one hump) ride on the way back. Our trip was a fun adventure with the help of everyone at Riad Djebel. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

We stayed at riad djebel for one night with my husband.. Our transfer from the station was organized by the owner Sylvian... We were greeted with a warm welcome... The riad is charming, stylish and clean. Sylvian was so helpful in everything we asked. He walked with us to the main square, so we could find our way back to the riad easily.... It is a pity that we coul not stay longer.. We certainly recommend riad djebel....

We stayed at Riad Djebel 3 nights and we were very satisfied of everything. The accomodation is excellent and the staff is very nice and friendly.
The breakfast is very good.
They also have a wonderful terrace to enjoy the sun.
I definitely suggest it!

Everything about this Riad was fantastic. The staff was so helpful and accomodating, the rooms were unique and charming, the food was fantastic, and the price was very reasonable.

Breakfast on the rooftop every morning was a fantastic way to start each day - amazing and fresh breads, oj, yogurt and mint tea.

The riad arranged all our transfers to / from the airport and trainstations flawlessly. Door to door service at it's best.

The Riad has a few 'green' conservation elements which was a lovely surprise.

The Riad is a bit away from the main square however the walk was easy and a great way to see a bit more of the city away from the tourist center

Room Tip: rooms on the second floor have a bit more light, rooms on the first floor are a bit more quiet.

I can highly recommend Riad Djebel, the owner Sylvain and his team are first class. They arranged restuarant bookings and assisted us in finding our way around Marrakech on arrival. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would recommend if booking to ask Sylvain to arrange airport transfers as this will make life on arrival easy and stress free. We ate at the Riad on the first night and along with the daily breakfast the food was very good. There are many Riad's in Marrakech each offering something different for a wide range of prices, Sylvian's is very good for the price but what stood out for us was the staff who make it one of the best in our eyes. Thank you for a wonderful stay and looking after us.
