A truly local experiencePosted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: Very clean accommodation with very friendly and helpful staff. Always happy to help, even on a national holiday!
Cons: The hot water was patchy and the TV intermittent, but this may have been typical for the city rather than unique to the hotel.
Location: The hotel is right in the city centre, near the main square, the Souk and nearly all top tourist destinations.
If you don't want to stay in a traditional hotel and get more of a local flavour, this is definitely the right choice. The hotel is down some narrow back streets, not for the faint hearted, but the locals are friendly as are the street cats! Take up the offer of the free hotel transfer from the airport, especially if travelling at night. The staff are friendly and the accommodation is clean and quiet. It's right in the town centre so good for being in on the action. The hotel is a courtyard though, so the common areas are open to the elements and can be cold at night and early morning.

The warmest welcome you will get anywhere.Posted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: The Staff The location The staff
Location: Just a minutes walk from the heart of the medina, but still very quiet and peaceful at the same time. All off the sights and attractions are walkable.
From the second you book with the Riad Granville they are looking after you, a few hours after I made my booking I received a telephone call from Hicham introducing himself and arranging a complementary airport pickup for me. When I arrived at the airport a combination delays meant I got out of arrivals over an hour later than expected, but the driver was still patiently waiting for me. Then because of the layout of the medina you can only be dropped off at the edge of town, but a member of staff was waiting for me and they took my bags and escorted me through the rabbit warren of streets to the Riad, with a ad hoc tour thrown in on the way. Once you are at the Riad you are taken care of so well, no request is too much, the staff will cater for your every need and want, you want to go on a tour? they sort it, dinner reservations-done, back needs scratching at 4am? then I'm pretty sure they would do that too (I didn't try that by the way!!). The riad itself is very clean, the courtyard is a great place to have breakfast, although you can have this on the roof terrace or in your room as your preference dictates. My suite was very nice, It does lack a few of the luxury facilities you get in 5 star hotels (like a pool, spa, Jacuzzi, gym) but it is perfectly located 2 minutes from main square but is very quiet because of its location down an alley. But it is the staff that really make this place special,and are a credit to the management and I thank them for making my stay perfect

Great location if you want to stay near the souksPosted Nov 16, 2013
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: Breakfast was the same every day. Was eaten out of neccesity rather than anything else.
Location: Right by Jema el Fena. The Souks, the madressa bin Yousef, Marrakech museum and also the Khatoubia mosque. Fab location.

Great ServicePosted Sep 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
My girlfriend and I were very pleased with the service provided by Isham, the host. He was tremendously hospitable and helpful in providing or sourcing relevant info as we made our trip plans for Marrakech and elsewhere. The room was fantastic as well.

Riad Granvilier: Jewel of MarrakechPosted May 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
When planning my trip to Marrakech, I decided to stay in a riad (a traditional Moroccan bed and breakfast) rather than my typical habit of luxury hotels. It's a decision I'm beyond happy I made! Not only is the Riad Granvilier beautiful - with its lovely interior courtyard, private rooftop and breathtaking rooms - but their hospitality is unmatched. Mohamed, Mustafa, and the rest of the staff were amazing and, by the end of the week, became more like friends. They had a genuine concern to make sure our stay was perfect: indulging in our many questions, helping with itineraries, and even helping me beat a terrible cold (tea + honey worked miracles!). The Riad is also perfectly located in the Jemaa el-Fna medina, which was exciting and very convenient. I highly recommend the Riad Granvilier and hope to return again soon.

Simply WonderfulPosted Oct 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
We absolutely wanted to stay in a Riad in the Medina for the true experience of Marrakesh and we chose Granvilier due to their excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Knowing that most Riads are quite impossible to find on your own as there are so many hidden in the narrow and lively streets of the Medina, I called the Riad from Casablanca before arriving. Hecham, responsible during the day was so lovely and gave me an appointment at an easy to find spot near the Medina, saying he would wait for me for 2 hours if we were late on the road. 2 hours! no one ever waited two hours for me with a smile. We fortunately arrived on time :) Hecham and his team did everything to make us feel home and special in this beautiful Riad. Very quiet, no noise at night, wonderful breakfasts served in the courtyard with birds, the greenery and the sky above us. We stayed in the suite "La Mamounia" which is beautifully decorated and remains cool, although it was hot during our stay in Marrakesh. Great customer service, decor, TV, air conditioning, and Moroccan tea and pastries served all day. We strongle recommend this Riad over all others. Price very correct. Thank you to all the team Granvilier for giving us such a great experience in Marrakesh is an unforgettable city.

Peaceful Riad close to centrePosted May 3, 2012
Extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location in quiet "derb" a few minutes walk from the main square. Can't be many better places to stay in the centre of Mararakech. My wife and I had 4 very enjoyable nights here.

5-star luxury riad in MarrakeshPosted Dec 31, 2011 on Hotels.com
Stayed at Riad Granvilier for one night during our trip around Morocco. Fantastic quality of restoration! Would recommend to anyone looking for small boutique hotel type stay. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, top terrace sunny and comfortable Bed and bathroom linen top quality. Make sure you are picked up on arrival as a bit tricky to find for the first time, but once you are there you are ok. The host was super friendly and helpful! Other places we stayed at on this trip do not compare! Beautiful riad, and high quality service. A family from London with a 4 year old.
