Stayed here for three nights at the end of January. A lovely charming Riad hidden away in the backstreets of Marrakech. When we first arrived, I was a little concerned at the need to meander through some rather narrow alleys to find the place, but I needn't have worried. Rachid, the local carekeeper, made us very welcome with a cup...

I'm so sorry for the problem with the hot water in the Jasmine room - I have spoken to my house manager and he tells me that as the plumber had been the previous day to fix a small leak in the shower he had not realized that the plug had been pulled out. He will now check each shower...

Stayed in the Jasmine room for 3 nights. It is very nicely decorated in mint-green and white and has a very comfortable metal 4-poster bed, heating/AC. The bathroom has nice fittings, lots of hot water and decent water pressure. There is a very nice and cosy sitting room on the 2nd floor, where a fire is lit on cooler nights,...

Absolute gem in terms of value and comfort. Riad Merstane was indeed a sanctuary after a chaotic day out and about in Marrakech. Though it is situated north of the Medina (and not immediately around the main square), all the main attractions were conveniently close and entirely walkable. In fact, I enjoyed the opportunity to observe the local activity/scenery/culture during...

From our first e-mail enquiry (answered within hours) to booking us our taxi to the airport, the service at Riad Merstane was flawless. The staff operate in a relaxed, friendly but very efficient manner, nothing is too much trouble. While we were there Kate (one of the owners) happened to be staying and she is an excellent resource for all...

Travelling with children aged 9 and 13, Riad Merstane was a haven in a friendly, authentic locality of the Marrakech medina. The beds are comfortable, the plumbing works and there are quiet comforts - a well-stocked English language library, card and board games, internet access, a salon, shady nooks and crannies and a huge roof terrace with lovely plants and...

We stayed in this riad (booked via the HipMarrakech website) for a few days. It is small and homely and full of character, in a non-touristy part of the city. It has a lovely small courtyard, where breakfast (and dinner by request) is served, a first floor sitting room, and a nice roof terrace. The house staff are very helpful,...

This was a perfect retreat and base from which to discover the city. Room was simple but cosy. Bathroon again simple, but with a fantastically hot shower which we needed. It was a bit cold at night but I think we just didnt pack the right clothes and had a bad spell of weather. Food was AMAZING! Lamb with prunes...

Myself and a large group of friends stayed at the Riad Merstane recently, on what was my first visit to Marrakech.

I recently stayed at the Riad Merstane with a group of friends and had an extremely pleasurable stay at this delightful guesthouse gem. The riad is located in the north of the medina, a 15-minute stroll from the hustle and bustle of the tourist-filled main square (though right on the doorstep of a magical 'locals only' market - Fridays only!)....
