Beautiful Riad, good location, friendly staff.

Posted Jan 10, 2015
Pros: Nice luxurious decor, good location, very friendly.
Cons: Room heating in winter
Location: Close to the souks, main square and restaurants, Marrakesh museum and stop for tourist bus or horse drawn carriages.
We very much enjoyed our four night stay at the Riad Granvilier. We enjoyed the location which was quiet but very close to the main square and souks. The Riad and our suite were beautiful but a little chilly as we stayed over New Year and the Riad by design was built for the Marrakech summer. However we were able to make use of the rooftop terrace which was a sun trap even in winter. The staff were very helpful and informative. Breakfast was good as was the mint tea after the hectic streets. This isn't a large modern hotel on the outskirts of Marrakech but it is a fantastic Riad, close to the action and just what we were looking for.

A very nice Riad only 300 meters from the Square.

Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: The convenience to the places of interest within the old town
Cons: It would be nice if a range of alcohol was available. However it should be bourn in mind that this is a Muslim country.
Location: Very convenient to all the attractions within the old town.
An oasis of tranquillity among the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Breakfast on the top floor terrace is not to be missed. The manager and staff are most attentive and ensure that one's stay is memorable.

A beautiful Riad

Posted Nov 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
A warm welcome with superb staff. Our stay was made special by the attention to detail at the Riad. Jalil and his team cared and wanted to ensure we had a comfortable stay and helped us quickly get to know the city and some good places to go. Thoroughly recommend staying at the Riad Granvilier

One night at Marrakesh

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Hotel stuff and localization near by the Jamaa el Fna square.
Cons: I will recommend to put somewhere map of the location with the drawing of detailed road from Jamaa el Fna square to the RIAD. It will be very helpful.
It was my first experience of such style of accomodation (RIAD) and I was really surprised with the services. Only problem for me was to find the RIAD and I had to use local teenager as a guide.

Inaccessible by taxi, long walk,guide is a must

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: The bath rooms are exotic, they carry the local ambiance.
Cons: I suggest that the hosts leave their guests alone, don't ask if they want some tea ten times. Give them free access in and out, don't lock the gate
Location: The walking access to the center of the Bazar is great.
Hosts of this Riad are young men trying to comfort guests too much, and this often comes across as artificial and overbearing. There is a discomforting silence as a result of less than 10 total rooms and at least 15 minutes of walk to a taxi or any road. Their 5 star claim is a misnomer, either sneaky dishonesty or a hyperbole, and this hyperbole is quiet routine here. Realistically this is a good 3 star motel, give it 3.5 at best. How can an 8 bed room Riad claims to be 5 star is beyond me. If you like the anonymity and privacy that comes with large hotels, just getting lost in the crowd, this is not for you. But if you travel light and are not intimidated by narrow streets with no access to taxi, especially when dark, then this place is not for you.

Fantastic Riad!

Posted Sep 26, 2014
Pros: Staff were amazing. It is a luxury place. Jhalil, Badar, Mohammed and the staff offer a customer service unlike any I have experienced anywhere else.
Cons: Showers are temperamental at best but I think that is all over Morocco!
Location: Shopping and eating. Usual City Break things. Not many huge world famous monuments etc. The attraction is the souks, markets, people and food.
The Riad was a few minutes walk to the main square yet still remarkably peaceful and quiet. Staff were absolutely wonderful. The Riad, which means, large house has 3 rooms and 2 suites. It has a beautiful courtyard which is exactly as it is on the website. We booked both suites for 3 nights and they were decorated differently yet very similar in layout, size and luxury. Marrakech is a fantastic place. We felt very safe and most places are well lit. Locals are friendly and haggling seems to start at 25% initial prices. This seems to work quite well and many things that started around the 200 Dirham mark were purchased for under 50 which is quite remarkable but that's what the guidebooks suggested. A little tip -Try to walk with purpose when lost in the souks. A local joke seems to be sending tourists the wrong way so don't ask for directions! Just stick to a route and when you come out the other end get a yellow cab. You can travel anywhere in the city centre for under 50 dirhams, usually around 20.

Our happy place amidst the chaos of Marrakech

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: The tranquility and the service. The staff went above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, safe and happy.
Cons: No complaints. We were very happy.
Location: This riad was very easy to find in comparison to the other places we stayed in Morocco. A 5 minute walk from the main square. Very conveinent.
We arrived in Marrakech 21/2 hours late, we were VERY pleased to see our driver waited for us at the airport. He took us to the city where we met the Manager, Jalil. He was very friendly, professional and informative. He walked our bags through the main square at night and with the help of his staff we arrived safely. The hotel is beautiful. Very clean. Very comfortable. Good bathrooms. No complaints. The dinner we had the evening we arrived was delicious. Our table was prepared for us when we arrived. Jalil sat down with us in the morning during breakfast and went over directions on a map so we could find our way to the attractions. The homemade yogurt was fantastic. We had the opportunity to sit and talk to the staff at night exchanging stories and learning about each others cultures. By the end of our stay we would consider Jalil and his staff our friends. We stayed at a lot of hotels and riads around Marrakech and we found Riad Granvilier to be the best of the best. We enjoyed it so much that we actually returned to say good bye at the end of the trip even though we were staying at a different riad across town. We forgot a few things in the room and the manager kept them for us till we came back. When we arrived again he provided free drinks to us and listened to our travel stories around Morocco. It was an amazing experience. We actually got the feeling of being at home with Jalil and his staff and I can honestly say I've never felt that way about a hotel stay.

Outstanding Riad... all the staff were welcoming and helpful. The staff definitely made it feel like home. The room we stayed in was beautiful. Breakfast was very nice and filling. Location is good if you want to be near the square :). If we were to go marrakech we'd stay there again. 10/10! :)

Riad bien situé et service impeccable

Posted Aug 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Cet hôtel est très bien situé dans la médina de Marrakech, à quelques minutes à pied de la place Jemaa el-Fnaa. Il se trouve au fond d'une rue bien calme comparé à l'animation de ce quartier. Il nous a été un peu difficile de trouver le Riad la première fois mais les jours suivants, la tranquillité de cette rue c'est avérée une bénédiction. Sinon rien à dire de plus sur le service et le lieu que formidable. Tout le personnel est très attentif et les chambres sont magnifique. Nous recommandons cette adresse chaudement.
