Stay in Marrakech

Posted May 3, 2015
Pros: Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who are exceptional helpful and welcoming
Cons: Nothing
Location: The location is typical for Riads in the Medina, and it is quite hard to find (we were met to be shown the way).
A great little Riad, beautifully renovated. Small so you get personal attention. We enjoyed our stay and were made very welcome. Good breakfast, comfortable room with air conditioning and a generous shower that we used two or three times a day in the heat. On the northern side of the Medina it was a longish walk in the heat (30C+) to sites in the southern part of the city.

Riad el mansour

Posted Apr 18, 2015
The staff was wonderful. The rooms too small to be comfortable. No elevators, no tv. To get to hotel it was impossible. No cars can drive within 1block of property. If you are looking for adventure this might be your place. Steps were dangerous for walking, gym was lousy. Fun was delicious

Perfect Hosts

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Riad El Mansour truly lives up to its reputation as a fantastic holiday experience. All staff were attentive from start to finish, going above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They cleaned our room several times/day, accommodated any request we had (including a rapid turnaround on washing and drying a pair of slacks!) and prepared a delicious authentic breakfast for us no matter how late we got started. The service was absolutely 5 star. The location is in the heart of 'real' marrakech, which allows you to experience this amazing city in all its glory from the moment you step out the door. It's also one of the few central Riads with a spa in the complex, which my gf certainly appreciated. Couldn't recommend it more.

A true Oasis

Walid, our contact during booking was amazing. He gave us rides all over Marrakech and showed us the GOOD places to get quality Argan oil and Moroccan rugs. He also helped us to book train tickets and get lost luggage recovered for us. Its in the old part of the city so if you are too western and unadventurous you may not like it, but we loved it!

This is a great hotel!

Thank you Riad El Mansour for wonderful week stay. It is a quiet, authentic, cultural retreat from the crazy-wonderful city. The staff were amazing and helpful and provided lots of personal attention. The daily roof-top breakfast was a perfect day-starter, but the dinners were even more amazing. Oh my, we will remember that fantastic tagine dinner for a very, very long time. This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. Dont forget to ask about airport pickup - its totally worth it over a taxi ride. And ask them for a day trip to the mountains while you are there.

Traditional Riad and peaceful haven

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: Authentic Riad with fantastic staff and high quality food and surroundings - the personal touch you would not get in a large hotel.
Location: Situated to the NW of the Medina. Approx 20 minute walk to the main square, 10 minutes to the most northern part of the souks.
We stayed at Riad El Mansour for 4 nights at the end of October 2014. We stayed in the Amethyst room on the ground floor which had everything we needed for a comfortable stay - beautiful decor, comfy bed, hair dryer and adaptor plug, nice toiletries, bathrobes and slippers and iPod Dock. The room was supplied with flowers, bottled water, fresh fruit and a bowl of dried fruit/nuts on a daily basis and we had a plate of delicious Moroccan pastries on arrival. A nice touch is the maid preparing the bed and leaving out your slippers in the evening. Very welcome after lots of walking! The whole Riad is furnished with high quality Moroccan furnishings and decor and has a wealth of original features. The hammam/massage package is not to be missed! Breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the whole day. Arriving in the evening, we arranged a meal for our arrival and if was delicious and beautifully presented on a table strewn with rose petals. What a start to our stay! The staff at the Riad are fantastic. They are friendly, helpful and want you to have a positive experience. We arranged airport transfer with them and would recommend that option to get to the Riad as quickly as possible. Abdess the manager gave us an orientation briefing before we went out on the first morning, providing us with a map with recommendations marked on. This made our walk to the centre easy and straightforward. This Riad is a hidden gem in the middle of a hectic city and we look forward to returning soon

Good service close to jardin Majorelle

Posted Oct 10, 2014
Picked up courteously by Mustafa... I would never have found the Riad without him. Abdess then helped me with sightseeing advice and showed me the premises. Air conditioning was welcome even in october. It's a 30 minute walk to the square, 10 to Majorelle gardens and 15 to Medersa Ben Yoseff and souks. Dinner was wonderful and enormous, breakfast very nice too. Clean rooms, at times left unlocked by cleaning staff but in a small hotel it wasn't an issue. The little gym looked pretty good, dinner room was quaint but I ate by the plunge pool. It would b extremely hard to find without initial assistance and streets are not labelled/ signposted. I stayed in Jonqil room.. Bed comfortable Lovely place.

Wonderful oasis of calm in fantastic city

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Pros: The beautiful tiles and designs throughout the riad. Each room was different and the artwork and sculptures through were beautiful.
Location: The staff are very knowledgeable about the city and will happily suggest places to visit. We loved the Saadian tombs and the Jardin Majorelle.
Right from the start the staff took amazing care of us from the moment they met us at the airport, even though it was about 1.30am. Every morning we were treated to a generous and tasty breakfast with lots of freshly squeezed orange juice. Our room was very comfortable and was cleaned twice a day. The care taken over our room was amazing, during the day our bed had a beautiful golden cover with lots of multi-coloured scatter cushions, and during the night we had white cotton covers. We had rosses in our room and a constant supply of bottled water. The riad is beautiful, and at the end of a days sightseeing it was bliss to go back there and relax on the terrace, watching the moon rise, drinking cold drinks and trying to spot geckos. The staff also very thoughtfully gave my partner a birthday cake which really made his trip. I cannot compliment, or thank the staff enough on how hard they worked to make our stay an experience of a lifetime. If you are looking for a place to stay that offers five star service with a personal touch then look no further.
