Minutes from the jeema el fan place and souks.Posted Jul 29, 2014
You live in the souks. Best way to enjoy your stay in Marrakech. Rooms are nice and clean. Not a 5 stars either but yet very good service.

Nice, clean riad right in the heart of Marrakech.Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: The hotel was in a perfect central location which allowed us to experience fully the culture of the Moroccans, also offered excursions.
Cons: The beds were a little bit hard, which some people are fond of, but not to our liking.
Location: The location was perfect, right in the centre, which meant we could experience everything with only a few metres walk.
This was our first trip to Marrakech, and it was certainly a memorable one. Upon arrival at the airport, we found out there was a miscommunication which led to a lack of airport shuttle. This was quickly remedied though after a quick call to the riad, and we were soon on our way. The riad is in a perfect place, I cannot stress that enough, right in the city centre, perfect for a city break, it's not for a relaxing holiday! It's a clean place, with good friendly staff who always attend to any requests. The breakfast is good, and provided decent moroccan coffee as well as authentic street food. The riad had a lovely open roof, with sunbeds (which could benefit from a little clean) which meant you could just roast away in the burning sun. All in all, definitely a riad I would recommend. The riad is situated in a quiet alleyway, just off the central square, which meant you weren't bothered by the loudness of the market! Now, the markets have an average pace of a million miles an hour. Everything is fast paced, and you are constantly asked to view the markets goods, which you never pay full price for. Just say your price, if they refuse, walk away, and they'll call you back and agree to it! Local food is good, one restaurant I would recommend is Chez Brahim, which provides fantastic food for a great price. With regards to locals and staring at women who were dressed for the sun, we didn't experience any hostility! A trip we'd do again!

Friendly StaffPosted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: Hotel location was ideal for as long as you don't have too much luggage as you have to walk about a kilometre to get the taxi, staff were very helpful
Cons: Room size was too small for us but we have been told there were slightly larger rooms also available, toilet was too close to beds, NOT ideal at all
Location: Hotel is within the souks and you have to walk through small alleys, location is great for shopping and plenty of restaurants and cafe's within walki
First time in Marrakech and found that a week was too long as there is not a lot to see or do in Marrakech

Great budget riad in the heart of the MedinaPosted Jun 12, 2014
Pros: Clean, well located
Cons: Soap in the rooms
Really recommend this Riad. Good price, it is really located in the heart of the Medina which is what you want if you want a truly Marrakeshy experience. The staff were always very helpful and nice. Rooms were impeccable. Just a few things to bear in mind: they don't provide soap so bring your own (I personally don't carry soap when flying on a budget airline, but this wasn't a problem for us as we bought some around). Also we were told by several local people that the food found in restaurants and the main square lacks spices and is very tasteless compared to home made meals. So we were told to eat in the Riad for a better experience, but this Riad as is small doesn't have a restaurant. Again this wasn't a problem for us because although we were disappointing at first that we were going to miss out in nice Moroccan food it turned out we were out most of the time and far from the hotel at dinner time so ended up eating outside (there are plenty of places to eat as you would imagine).

Nice Riad Close to main squarePosted May 11, 2014
Pros: Location, peacefulness and staff.
Nice, clean Riad 2 minutes walk from the main square. Nothing fancy but great value for money, lovely rooftop terrace and great friendly staff, nothing was to much trouble for them. Riad Marrakiss was well presented.

A great little backstreet RiadPosted Apr 26, 2014
We stayed in central Marrakech for two nights. This riad is perfectly placed off the central square (about 5 mins) and is seconds away from the souks. Given the proximity to the hustle and bustle of the city, the riad is really quiet and relaxing. There is also a great roof terrace from which you can see over most of the city. Our room was lovely, with stained glass windows and a wonderfully roomy shower. My only personal issue was how firm the bed was, but I like a really soft mattress normally. Breakfast was basic, but good and the perfect start for a day exploring the city.

Best little Riad in MarrakechPosted Mar 22, 2014
Pros: Friendly helpful staff, good breakfast, very clean rooms and all anyone would want for a short city break - even a smart terrace/sun roofequipped with
Cons: Sometimes a bit noisy from outside.
Location: Five minutes walk from bus stop after a twenty minute ride from the airport. Many museums and tourist spots,souks shops gardens to walk in,spas etc.
This is the third time I have stayed here at Riad Marrakiss. For closeness to everything that Jemma El Fna has to throw at you - stalls, souks, story tellers, acrobats, snake charmers, restaurants and mint teas. It is an excellent place to get your barings ( sometimes tricky in Medina) and is only a walk away from most of the museums and tourist sights. Wonderful - will go again.

Good Riad..Near to centre. GOOD Value.Posted Mar 16, 2014
Pros: I liked the Staff and the good breakfast...also near to the 'Place' (square) and the centre great for looking around, but quiet down a back street.
Cons: The only thing was the room (floor) could have been a little cleaner, but this is dusty Morocco.
Location: Jardin Marjorelle + Museum there, a must! Badir Palace etc you can walk in few minutes, no need for taxi. The square can be a culture shock at first!
For Riad, think a guest house and this one has 5 or 6 rooms. It is WELL WORTH THE MONEY and the staff are very helpful ( try and speak French, however little you know and this will go a long way ANYWHERE in Marrakech). The Manager (Jonas) was very helpful to me and the other members of staff the same...school boy French got me through. The breakfasts were 'Hearty', large bun and cheese, orange juice, honey crepe, jam and a mint tea ( my choice). It was hearty fair and kept me going through the morning. Almost anywhere in Marrakech you will hear the call to prayers ( especially Friday ) take this as a part of the experience ! The bed was clean, good (firm) and I slept like a log. Ask Jonas for help in locating places and eating out, he recommended a great place to me and so cheap, I avoided eating on the stalls in the square, but the food in the place he recommended, was good ( Lamb Tangine), also ask about taxis, back to airport, when you get there. He was always helpful, even if he was working.

Ok for a RiadPosted Mar 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
The welcome is warm and friendly but it stops there. There is often no one around. The hot water is hit and miss and the noise of the boys that gather outside of the riad at night is overwhelming. The room is cold and I would have asked for a blanket if I had seen anyone to ask. It is my opinion that the riad stay is over-rated but do it once and for one night to experience the medina OR stay at the Ibis which is one the edge of the medina and cheaper than this place.

Very close to the square but still peacefulPosted Mar 7, 2014
I would recommend this Riad to anyone, its a 2 minute walk to the main square yet once inside the Riad its lovely and quiet. The rooms are clean and the staff are very helpful. On our last day our flight was not until the evening, but we were allowed to come and go and use the facilities throughout the day. The rooftop terrace is a great suncatcher! I would stay here again.
