Hard to find location

Posted May 29, 2017
The area is not safe. I will not recommend walking at night especially for those who can not speak French or Arabic. Taxi driver had to stop 3 time to ask the locals for directions. Kids follow you at the street to the riad and ask you for money.

Fantastic riad, close to the main square

Posted Mar 28, 2017
Location: Main square is 10min walk away. Perfect location to walk to restaurants and the souks.
Lovely riad. Great rooms and roof terrace is real sun trap. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We booked a massage and hamman in the riad which was lovely and relaxing, and the lunch they cooked us was super tasty. Would definitely recommend Riad Mariana.

Awesome Riad

Posted Nov 22, 2016
Aside from the authentic Moroccan atmosphere, the food was equally fantastic. The riad is located only a few minutes from Jema Dl Fna and Phillipe, the owner, will gladly assist you with directions, a ride, or any excursions you want to experience while in Morocco. Although wifi is available at most restaurants and hotels in the area, we found that the wifi at Riad Mariana was much more reliable. In Morocco, you learn not to take the little things for granted (a working, reliable toilet is a good example). Riad Mariana offers all the amentities of home while still maintaining the culture people come to the country to learn about with a great staff on top of it. We very much enjoyed our week at the Riad and hope to visit again soon.

The place to stay in Marrakech

Posted Oct 15, 2016
Location: Just to the east of the middle of the old down/medina of Marrakech. A short walk from one of entrances ("bab") to old town. Its where you want to be
Extremely friendly owner/operator. Had suggestions on getting places, being safe. He was looking out for my welfare. Room was large, powerful A/C. He gave me a key to the building so i could come in at any time. I left early for my departing flight and he slept on a coach where i would unavoidably wake him up - just so he could say goodbye. (I was already paid up.) Gave him the biggest tip for staying at any hotel in any of the 30 countries i've visited - about 50% of the room cost. Nice breakfasts. If I ever travel to Marrakech again, i will certainly stay there.

For me the Riad had a fab atmosphere, lovely staff

Posted Oct 9, 2016
Location: Central about a ten minute walk to the medina.
The amenities are great the bath to die for, will never be the same !!! Not to mention potpourri, for the staff nothing was too much trouble. Phillippe had us collected from the Railway station. It was a nice tranquil place following the chaotic medina.

Beware of low room rates. Taxes are astronomical.

Posted Jul 14, 2015 on Hotels
From the moment we arrived, the administrator was focussed on collecting extra €50 for taxes. We thought It was way to much. He came down to €25. At the end of the stay, he found the way, to over charge anyway. We paid extra €50 plus 275 Dirhams.

Dear guest , you paid the real and normal rate for the tourism tax for a guest house in Marrakech ( this tax is not for us ) - Never we asked for 50 € for nothing - very sorry for the confusion - best regards - Philippe , owner of Riad Mariana

Very good value.

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Air conditioning. Nice big room. Friendly staff. Quiet location.
Cons: The only problem I had was that breakfast seemed to get smaller and smaller as our stay went on.
Location: Most of the sites in the old town.
This is a very nice place to stay. It is very clean and there are plenty of facilities available. I can't comment on quality of the facilities as we did not have the opportunity to use them as we had already made plans. The hotel itself has a very nice calm atmosphere, that was very welcome after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Its near to most of the places in the old town but they can seem further when walking in the heat, however there is a tourist bus that stops not far from the hotel which will take you to most of the sites.

Home away from home!

Posted Jun 9, 2015
This is a great Riad not far from the hustle and bustle of Jemaa El Fna. It's a quiet oasis with a real family vibe. Breakfast was lovely and rooms light and clean. Abdou, Fatima and Tamou are fantastic - very friendly, helpful and make you feel right at home. Fatima cooks the best meals and dinner was a delight at the Riad. Each dish was freshly cooked with local incredients - definitely one of the highlights of our trip! The roof terrace was also a hit - it's lovely to come back to after a day of exploring. Beautiful flowers and plants adorn the roof terrace and it's a perfect area to eat as well as catch some rays of sunshine! A well-run place with a laid back and friendly atmosphere. Definitely recommended!
