we went to marrakesh for a short trip to celebrate my birthday and after long research I found the Riad Belbaraka. I emailed the riad directly and got a better deal than what it was advertised on booking.com. we also had the airport transfer arranged through the riad(highly recommended) as you won't be able to find the riad if not escorted on your arrival. The location was great as well, 10-15 min to the main square, but still away from all the hassle and noise. Also if you ask Rashid he will direct you to two nearby restaurants which were amazing also. The staff is more than friendly and attentive. We were welcomed with mint tea and Moroccan pastry, which were all delicious. The rooms were clean, cozy, without any modern amenities like tv or phone, which made the atmosphere even more authentic to the old spirit of the city. Breakfast was more than amazing, freshly baked Moroccan pancakes and amazing jam made out of figs. This was served on the roof terrace where you can enjoy the sunshine and the quietness of the surroundings.
If you want a place where to relax after long days of walking around the souks this is the right place.

I couldn't recommend riad belbaraka highly enough. The riad itself is gorgeous with amazing furnishings, the location is fantastic and the staff are really lovely, keen to help you out in any way they can. Charlotte, the manager, is just a really lovely lady who is genuinely keen to ensure that you have a good stay in Marrakech. Also the breakfast is delicious! I would definitely recommend splurging on one of the riads more expensive rooms as i think they are well worth it.

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Morocco in January 2010. Our Riad Be Baraka was the perfect place to spend our time in marrakech, about a 10-15 minute walk from the Djeema El Fna but this gave us the perfect opportunity to explore the less busy and cheaper souks deep in the medina. Warning - shopping even for small souvenirs is not as cheap as you might think!
The riad is wonderful, clean and stylish. Brekfast on the terrace in the sun is delightful, and we were able to spend our evenings relaxing on the terrace with a shisha pipe, mint tea and moroccan pastries! Low season meant that Marrakech was not too busy, we weren't hassled too much, and the Riad was nice and quiet although even if all teh rooms were full it would still be very peaceful.
Charlotte and Rachid were fabulous hosts. We took a day trip to the Atlas mountains and a three day trip to the sand dunes near Merzouga. The drives were very long but their 4x4 was very comfortable and the scenery absolutely spectacular the whole way there. It was worth spending a little extra to go on these trips with Rachid as we could stop whenever we wanted and only ate and slept in places with good repuations. Much better than some of the minibus loads of tourtists we saw once or twice gettin gout to stretch their legs! The only slighlt downside was that Rachid's english is not very good to tell you all about your surroundings but this wasn't a big deal to us.
Morocco is fabulous and we would highly recomend this Riad. Email the Riad directly to get the best price. We paid less than it says on the website for low season but it will depend on how buys they are.
Enjoy!

We had a lovely three night stay at the Riad Belbaraka at the end of November 2009 as we wanted a base to explore Marrakech. We got picked up at the airport and taken to the square nearest to the Riad and then walked to the Riad down the narrow alleyways (we would never have found it ourselves if we hadn't asked them to collect us). The Riad was lovely, had a wonderful calm atmosphere and Charlotte greeted us with mint tea and pastries and took us through the best places to visit in Marrakech before leaving us to settle in our rooms. The room cafe was on the ground floor and, although dark, was plenty big enough with a huge bathroom to soak your feet in after a hard walk around Marrakech. We did find some noise problems at night from other guests chatting with no consideration that it was a Riad (which echo's) and from the call to prayer (which no-one warned us about) but it didn't ruin our stay. If anything would have ruined it it would have been the scary alleyways and the long walks, fortunately the good points made up for the bad ones and I would recommend Marrakech to those who want to feel like they've been on an adventure!

This was our first time to Morocco, so we wanted a relaxing place to stay where we could wind down in case we needed to. Marrakech itself was *very* friendly and there was no real need to "escape" anything. But the riad was the highlight of our stay anyway. The place is beautifully decorated and renovated in a mix of traditional Moroccan style and some influences from other "exotic" places, quiet and sparkling clean. The rooms vary in size but they are all very pretty indeed -- in particular the bathrooms. We stayed in Diva downstairs -- right next to the kitchen, but we didn't really mind. The roof terrace is a real winner -- the perfect place to have your breakfast in the morning or some mint tea (yummy!) in the afternoon. Rachid the owner and his staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (despite our very limited French -- Rachid speaks English), and the food was simply delicious (try the meat tagine with prunes and cinnamon).

The cat may indeed be a bit of a problem (as one of the previous reviewers said) but at least (s)he's as friendly as the rest of the staff. There was free WiFi; we couldn't connect at the beginning but just ask Rachid and he'll help you.

As far as the location goes, well, it sure is at the end of a narrow little passage and not so close to the main square (Jemaa el Fna). So it may be a good idea to book the transfer from the airport at least on your way in -- the driver led us to the riad. But once you get used to it, it's not a problem -- we had the excellent Rough Guide map with us (a must!) and only got lost once :)

I'm sure there are plenty of plusher, more luxurious or more impressive places in Marrakech. But in terms of the quality-to-price ratio, this is among the best places I've been to.

Overall, warmly recommended!
