The riad was nothing like what was advertised. When we found bedbugs and checked out early, the owner (who was absent - we only dealt with her on the phone) refused to give us a refund or even acknowledge that anything was wrong. Her staff, on the other hand, told us the bed bugs were a recurring problem that ownership... More

Loved this riad! Perfect location, and very helpful staff, felt at home the whole time. The courtyard was beautiful and we loved relaxing there in the evenings. Our room was clean and so was the bathroom - shower was lovely and warm! If I stayed in Marrakech again I would love to come back here. Perfect price too. Breakfast was... More

This Riad is in a great location. Redouane is a great host as all the staff, very friendly and attentive. The bedrooms are huge and have all you need, and the inside patio is great for a chill after a long day at the souks! Only little minor for me, privacy in the bedrooms by the patio could be better,... More

We spent 6 nights here in October and were not disappointed. From the start this Riad caught our eye when we were looking and I'm glad we chose it because it is very good value for money and offers a very calm, cool and pleasant retreat from the chaos and bustle of the souks! Our airport pick up and subsequent... More

We booked this on airbnb.com for $50 for one night. Having being in Marrakesh the week before, we were pretty familiar with the square area and knew exactly where the Café de France was per the directions. ****Warning*** If this is your first time in the square area, try to have the Riad meet you in the square to lead...

I stayed here in 2012, April with 3 other friends. The staff was very friendly. We had a massive room with closets and everything was pretty clean. The only downside was the absence of a door for the toilet (which was a bit uncomfortable only because we were boys and girls staying together), but easy to overcome. It was a... More

We stayed here for 8 nights. It's very well located, close to the square and souks with lots of little convenience shops nearby, aesthetically beautiful and very Moroccon, which is great, and it's very tranquil and relaxing. However, there are a few things that stop me from rating it as 'very good'. Firstly, we arrived there at 9pm. As someone... More

We stayed at Riad Media Azahara aka "So cheap so chic riad with pool" as a group of three in early July. It's very well located, just off Derb Dabachi and is less than 5 minutes from Jemaa El Fna. The place itself is relatively simple to find except that there is no name on the door besides the door... More

The environment is belo, the structure also, the breakfast good and the staff pleasant. the only problem that downgrades the riad are animals. I love animals, but not qunado have access everywhere and are not educated, they leave their droppings everywhere including sofas and pillows where you sit and eat.

“Rooms on the upper floor”
 of 5 bubbles AmvAmorim, 27 Apr 2016 | Read review
“Rooms on first floor are more secluded from people traffic (staff/guests coming and going) and probably are a little brighter too.”
 of 5 bubbles 546lucyg, 4 Nov 2015 | Read review
“Go for the first floor, not the bottom/ground. People tend to talk late into the night around the pool on the bottom floor, they also eat breakfast in this space in the morning.”
