Perfect location for market and street food
This is a really lovely riad. We was in Marrakesh for a week and stayed here for the first three days. None of my party had been to the city before and staff there were more than happy to help and give advise about how to get round the city and the local culture. The riad is beautifully designed had a roof top area to relax with sun beds and a covered area. This was ideal for when the sun went down as we arrived in 40 degree heat in the middle of May! The breakfast was lovingly prepared by the house cook. I would highly recommend the onion and carrot pancakes. The market is a 2 minute walk around the corner and is open until late at night. For dinner i would recommend the street food (also in the market). There are dozens of stalls that normally set up from about 6pm. We ate wherever there was a queue so the food was bound to be good! the 3 of us ate for less than £3! The only criticism I have is that 3 of us stayed in the orange room, it was a bit cramped so it more suited to for 2 people.

A superb week in authentic Marrakech
We stayed at Riad Linda for a week - a week that we will long remember. We loved the experience of being in Marrakech, particularly during the festival of Eid, and we loved staying in the Riad. For most of the week we had the place to ourselves - which was nice, but for a couple of days the owner, Linda and her husband, Gordon also stayed. This was a bit of a bonus because not only are they a lovely couple but very knowledgeable about Morocco and suggested a couple of day trips which we went on. Since we came home we have been telling all our friends and family that they must experience Marrakech and we have also recommended Riad Linda as the ideal place to stay. I need to mention the staff because they were so important in making this a successful holiday. Rachid, the general manager, isn't there all the time but often enough to advise on where to visit, where to eat, to arrange a driver for trips to the Atlas Mountains and Ait Ben Haddou (I recommend both these trips) and generally keep you right. He speaks very good English. The concierge, Waddi is quiet (perhaps a bit shy) but very helpful and friendly. His English is limited,but communication was never a problem. The third member of staff is Fadilla who does the cooking and cleaning. When you stay at Riad Linda you must eat in one evening and have Fadilla prepare the dish with the balls of fish. It was excellent, one of the best meals I've eaten in years. All in all, we would heartedly recommend Riad Linda and if we return to Marrakech ( which we hope to do next Oct) we will be booking in there again.

An excellent place to stay
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Riad Linda Marrakech recently. Before landing at Marrakech we had been in touch with Linda herself, the owner of the riad, a Scottish lady with genuine love for Morrocco. We had requested her for a taxi to pick us up from the airport , and that proved to be a very wise move indeed. A first time visitor to this Riad, or, for that matter, to any riad in Marrakech would be well advised to arrange for a taxi to take them to their Riad since the riads are initially difficult to locate and the usual taxi drivers can overcharge you badly. The manager of the Riad received us at the main square (Medina) and escorted us to the Riad. Riad Linda, like several other riads in that neighbourhood, is situated at the end of a series of narrow but clean lanes. The moment you enter the Riad, you arrive in a haven of peace and tranquillity compared to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech's main attraction, the Medina, which is about a five minute walk away from Riad Linda. We were welcomed with Moroccon tea by the Riad manager Raschid and his assistant Wazir. Raschid gives you all the information that you are looking for and would arrange cars for local sightseeing or day trips from Marrakech. The Riad has a small but beautiful central courtyard surrounded by rooms on the ground floor and first floor. The Riad has been lovingly restored in traditional Moroccan style. Still, the rooms have all modern amenities like air-conditioning, hot/cold shower, western style toilets and very comfortable beds. Breakfast is had in the central courtyard and is served with great affection and care by the staff. They are ready to prepare eggs according to your choice and serve hot local pancakes with honey which are a delight to eat. Riad Linda is very reasonably priced and is well worth the money. We would like to congratulate Linda and her staff for the excellent service they are rendering.

Lovely clean accommodation and friendly staff
Had a wonderful long weekend in Riad Linda - so close to all the hustle and bustle of the main square yet perfectly peaceful and serene once in the Riad. The staff were really friendly and helpful and had a great day trip to the Atlas mountains organised by Rashid and many thanks to our driver Mohammed. Breakfasts were lovely and the roof terrace was georgous with our own soft seating area (not on the photos) where you could really lie out and relax in the shade. Loved how you went down little alleyways to get to the riad entrance and once inside your own beautiful space opened up. Great value and thank you to Linda and her staff for making it such a wonderful stay.

perfectly authentic experience
I would not have changed a thing about our stay at Riad Linda. Linda was super-nice, the staff on-site was more than accommodating. Staying at a Riad is the only way for a truly authentic experience in Marrakesh. Do not expect a luxury hotel. Do expect a lovely bed & breakfast open to the desert sun, tucked back through the windy alleyways off the square. It was just perfect! Anything you wanted to do was quickly arranged by Rachid and for a very nice price. This is really the only way to do it in my mind.

The Mairs -:- Edinburgh, Scotland
Peace and comfort in the heart of the old town
We had a great stay here at Riad Linda in October 2009. The Riad is very well situated at the end of a traditional narrow street just a few minutes from the main square: Place Jemaa El Fna. We took a petit taxi from the airport and then a porter took our bags on his trolley to the Riad. The Riad is in the heart of the Medina (old town) which is not accessible by cars, but is full of intriguing shops and stalls as well as people, bikes and carts. We were also very impressed by how clean the whole town is. A great place for practising your school french, but most people also speak good English. There is a real buzz to the place. We didn't do any of the out of town excursions available, we'd come to rest. Having said that we visited a Hamman, for a steam bath and massage, took a trip in a Caleche... a fabulous horse drawn carriage, and spent hours wandering, drinking the beautiful fresh orange juice and people watching from the cafes. The restaurants are all good, local Morrocan food is tasty and inexpensive. If you want to go back to the west for a while, then go to the new town up Avenue Mohammmed V, you'll find restaurants and shops just like at home. The Medina though is full of life and you can haggle and bargain to your heart's content in the tiny shops and narrow streets. Remember to set a price in advance though if you go by carriage or taxi, and just smile lots, people smile back! The Riad itself has been recently modernised and is clean, fresh and very comfortable, we felt very safe and secure. You can buy everything you need in the shops round about and the concierge will help if you need it. The bedrooms are a good size and beautifully presented with en-suite facilities and each has air conditioning. There's a large well fitted kitchen if you want to cook and plenty of room to lounge around in the sun on the terraces. We can highly recommend Riad Linda.
