Riad lyla Marrakech
Ranked #69 of 1,167 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2013

For a break for couple of days we visited Marrakech. On the net I found, though recommendations Riad Lyla. Correspondence with the Riad was swift and pleasant. They made arrangements for the transfer, gave ample advise on Marrakech things to do and see. Were instrumental in reserving restaurants, Hammam's and other things.

I was traveling with my wife. We are experienced travelers (I hitchhiked to Marrakech 20 years ago from the Netherlands) and used to making all arrangements myself. I found the service at Lyla excellent, always a pot of hot tea when we came in, a rich and varied breakfast each day. Service throughout the Riad, in the sitting room, in our room or on one of the terraces on the roof. And as said when requested the Riad accommodated with advise and action.

We spent 4 nights at Lyla and score it with 5/5 stars....

(only downside I can mention is the bed, mattress was quite hard/uncomfortable. The room/sitting room though was a joy to be in, nicely decorated with windows opening to the courtyard. Really lovely!)

We first found the Riad Lyla by default and having spent a delightful night there 2 years, vowed to return.
Wanting to plan something special for a 60th birthday this seemed the obvious answer.
We booked directly with Dominique, who really could not have been more helpful. He arranged our transfers from and to the airport, purchased our bus tickets to Essouaria, bartered for our taxi to the bus station, and even let us use the Riad on our return to Marrakech before our flight home.
Breakfasts were delicious, afternoon teas served on the roof terrace and even special 60th birthday cake was no trouble.
Evening fires were lit in the salon even though we were the only visitors and wine was forthcoming.
Dominique and his staff did indeed make our stay memorable for all the right reasons.
We look forward to an excuse to return.

The best way to describe Riad Lyla is simply WOW.
I'm not sure I could write a review that describes how wonderful this Riad is or how amazing the team, lead by Dominique, is in every way.
The Riad is located very centrally in the Medina and only a 3 or 4 min walk to the shopping paradise of the Souks and only a 5 to 10 min stroll to the central square of Jemma El Fna.
Each room as individually decorated and unique. We booked 4 rooms for our group I couldn't work out which one I wanted to stay in more. After walking around the crazy city this place is an unexpected oasis of tranquility.
The breakfast was amazing and everyone in our party talked about it for the entire trip. You can take breakfast indoors or on one of the many sun terraces. I am not sure how they made it but breakfast was simple but amazing.
The staff went out of their way to provide outstanding customer service. Dominique organised day tours for us, massages, and recommendations on anything that we asked. He even walked us to restaurants so we wouldn't get lost in the maze of streets and arranged for the team to show us where we could but the tea we were served at breakfast from.
If you have just started searching for a Riad to stay at in Marrakech or well into your search, forget everyone that you have looked at and just book this one.
Domonique and team: Merci beaucoup, nous vous devons le monde. Nous reviendrons à coup sûr.

Room Tip: As I mentioned each room is individual so have a look online and see what you would like. Definitel...

Riad Lyla in Marrakech is a wonderful place to stay while you want to visit Marrakech!
The Manager Dominique and his staf are so kind and helpfull.....the Riad itself has beautiful rooms. The roof terrace is lovely. You can take your breakfast over there. The delicious fresh pancakes, fresh orange juice are beautiful. The personal attention is just great.
The location is also very good. The Hamman just around the corner is a must to visit!
If I would come again to Marrakech I would defenitely go back to Riad Lyla!

Room Tip: all rooms are different and good!

We just spent a fantastic weekend in this riad. Not only is the location great, just a short walk from the souks, the service is outstanding. Dominique and his team manage to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. They can and will arrange everything for you: the best massage, marvelous restaurants, a hair dresser and transport everywhere you want to go. Dominique, on reviendra!
