If you wish to stay in a modern hotel sterile and without soul this is not for you ! If you prefer the authentic yet comfortable AND with human warmth then this Riad is what you are looking for ! We arrived very late and yet we received a warm welcome from the night person - one of the nicest...

We stayed in this riad for our third trip to Marrakech. This riad was by far the best. The location is just perfect just minutes from the Jamaa el Fna, the souks and the Koutoubia. This riad is accessible by taxi, which is quite rare and precious in the medina. The riad is quite large and has a modern, mixed...

I have just returned from a visit to Marrakech, where I had booked into this riad and was informed it was a five star establishment.this is not the case.i would be hard pushed to give this riad a 3 star rating as it's biggest virtue is the location (and that is only if you don't mind listening to the poor...

Unbelievably convenient for all the action and fantastically friendly and helpful staff. Very very comfortable rooms, child friendly (two beds in our suite) and awesome terrace with spectacular 360 degree views over Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains - a real gem. Hard to imagine anywhere better for the price as way better than the pretentious Mamounia. Far more authentic and...

Great staff ..quiet in a busy location .. Convenient located at the jfna square.. We had a huge room.. Apparently the biggest .. Design was grand. It's not hotel quick service it's more laid back and just what we like. Little bit hard to locate on the first time as it was only a door. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Admittedly, we didnt get off to a good start, this place is SO, SO hard to find, I wasnt put off when I read this as I thought it would be a bit tricky, but seriously, you can't find this hotel for love nor money. The taxi driver dropped us just outside the medina walls and pointed us in the...

We have stayed in Riad for 3 nights in the beginning of April. Definitely recommend to organise a taxi from the airport. We have done so as advised by other travellers. Location is fantastic 5 minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna square, although alley the hotel is based is bit scary looking and smells of urine. There is no sign...

Checking into the Riad Al Assala, one might be wandering whet they have signed up for. The location on a side alley in the Medina may make you a bit nervous. But fear not. behind the door is a small bit of paradise in the wild and crazy Medina of Marrakech. The service was tremendous. There are two different English...

This was the most fantastic experience of a place to visit. Marrakesh itself is quite a culture shock, and the tranquility of the Riad was exceptional Please remember you will have to pay taxes to the Riad when you leave
