Atmospheric and HiddenPosted Dec 1, 2013
I loved this Riad. It's 30 seconds from a bustling, pedestrian street, 2 minutes from the Djeema el-Fna but once inside it's so quiet and peaceful. It's also on one of the very few streets with an actual street sign at the entrance, so easier to find than I expected. Breakfast is the same every day, but who doesn't like pancakes, bread, cheese and jam? The only downside some might find is that the owner/receptionist is quite taciturn. Not rude, I don't think, just very quiet. On the whole, a great place and a great price!

No internet in rooms despite description in hotels.com listing. very basic, and can be very loud in your room.

Good locationPosted Mar 31, 2013
Pros: It has a real Moroccan feel to it.
Cons: Cold!! Bed room floor never cleaned so wear shoes at all times.
Location: Good location in the medina .
Good location around the corner from the square. Hard to find at first especially at night in the dark. Could be scary if you travel alone as it is up an alley which is quiet. The owner was very helpful.

Great for couples / friendsPosted Jan 30, 2013
Pros: The location.
Cons: The hardest bed and flattest pillow I've ever had the misfortune to come across.
Location: Fantastic location close to the square but far away enough from the hub bub and noise
This riad is in a great location. Close enough to get to everything quickly and easily but far enough away that you don't get any noise (other than the calls to prayer several times a day). The breakfast wasn't fantastic but your not going there for a good breakfast so it didn't bother us. I personally didn't find the manager super-friendly but he did help a couple of times with booking taxi's.

A Classic Riad experience in the MedinaPosted Oct 6, 2012
Pros: Josef the manager was a gem.
Cons: Adapting to the hard beds.
Location: Close to Place de Jamaa El Fna, easy walking distance to the Souks, short taxi rides to other main sites of interest.
A classic 7 room Morrocan Riad, located close to the Place de Jamaa El Fna and within easy walking distance of the Souks. Josef is the manager, a gentle trustworthy individual who will take care of you. The rooms are small, clean, with ensuite shower/wc, good a/c, in-room safe. Breakfast is simple fare but tasty. The beds were hard, but my wife and I slept well at the end of each full day sight-seeing. You may be disturbed by early morning prayers broadcast from the many mosques, all the city Riads are affected and part of the old city's charm. We stayed three nights at Riad Marakiss and we plan to return in the near future. Arrange the taxi pickup at the airport through Josef to ensure a hassle free trip to the door of the hotel.

Great riad only minutes walk from the main squarePosted Sep 23, 2012
Pros: The staff were so helpfull
Cons: Towels could have ben softer
Location: Great, so easy to find and only a short walk from the main square and souks
Great little riad, we found it easily from the main square down a covered alley,directions from the website were easy to follow. Our room was very clean with a cute little en-suite, all in traditionbal marrakesh style. The bed was quite hard but we slept very well non the less! Air conditioning was very good and needed as the night temperature was still in the high twenties in September. The rooftop terrace was a godsend and I spent a couple of hours catching the rays each afternoon, lovely loungers and tables and chairs available. Breakfast was adequate with bread, jam or cheese, fresh orange juice and mint tea(yummy) or coffee, served in the enclosed courtyard with the sun shining down. The staff were very heplfull and even arranged a hamman for me, offering a tourist or a traditional one (undertaken at the local baths..females only..where I joined local women and got scrubbed, buffed and massaged!) This is a very clean and well maintained riad, within easy walking distance of the square, I would reccomend it if you enjoy getting up close and personal with the locals.

Very Accommodating.Posted Apr 11, 2012
Pros: Very friendly staff.
Location: Only 2-5 minutes walk from the main square.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean each day. Our room was a little dark, only having a window in the door, but most rooms are pleasant. There are two outdoor terraces overlooking the city. The main square is very near by (2-5 minutes walk depending on the street crowds). Overall it was a very good experience in a very good location.
