After stepping out of the taxi (which was not allowed further into the medina at that time of day), we were met by a fellow with a pull-cart. Into the cart went the backpacks and off the gent went with us; through the maze. After many turns and a final one down a deserted, dim and narrow alley, we stood...

Very good place for few days stay in Marrakesh , just few minutes walk for Jemaa El-Fna , hidden in the "real" part of Medina - not that turistic (few times in the street local people were trying to explain us that we missed our way :o). Very nicely decorated. Staff really excellent. Delicious breakfast - every day something new...

We only stayed for one night on our last night in Morocco but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I loved this riad's traditional decor, every detail was handcrafted, there was a calming water fountain and wonderful scents running through the halls. Our room had a massive bed and massive bath tub and plenty of hot water which can't be said for...

The taxi dropped us at the end of a busy lane and took us to a dark alley way where the riad is situated. The big wooden door of the riad opened and we were transported to a different world. We were welcomed with mint tea and sweet nibbles. The owner and the manageress greeted us and we felt at...

If you go to Morocco, I would recommend you to stay in a Riad instead of a hotel. You can stay in a hotel anywhere else in the world but a Riad has it's own magic. There are only 5 rooms in this Riad so the service is very personal and you do not feel like you just an other...

We stayed at Riad El Wiam for 5 nights and absolutely adored it! We were picked up at the airport by our driver and taken straight to the main square, where someone took our luggage and led us to the Riad. We would definitely recommend booking a transfer through the Riad - it is very tricky to find for the...

This is a lovely Riad to stay in. The manager was really helpful with recommendations for trips and restaurants. Some of our trips had an early start so we requested an early breakfast which was no trouble at all. Breakfast was different every morning with a choice of croissants, pain au chocolate and pancakes. The rooms are beautiful and the...
