We spent two nights there in May 2015 and had a wonderful stay. The top floor room was great and since the Riad wasn't too crowded we pretty much had the whole top floor area to ourselves. The local staff is so nice and helpful, they really make you feel you are staying at a genuine local spot.

We found the place to be a real deal compared to what we paid at more luxurious place. The Riad is gorgeous and serene.

Small drawback, while it's a 3min walk to the main square it is to be noted that like most Riad, you cant really get there by cab. Also, when streets get crowded on weekends, the walk becomes a bit longer. Also the wifi network is spotty on the top floor. But overall a terrific stay, I'd go back and send family and friends without hesitation.

Room Tip: top floor room seems to be the best

You cross the snake charmers & acrobats in Jamaa el Fna, wander through the crazy hustle & bustle of the souks in the Marrakech madina, then duck in a side alley, pass a traditional wood-fired oven bakery and under an arch... and arrive at Riad Maipa.

Centrally tucked in the heart of Marrakech, the riad is a peaceful oasis just steps away from the chaos that is the medina. Quiet, friendly, ornate, exotic. Mint tea under the orange tree in the courtyard. Birds chirping with a faint wisp of calls to prayer drifting down. Wow.

Beautiful rooms, clean bathrooms, free wifi, room service, friendly staff. My #1 destination next time I return to Morocco.

This is a very nice experince. We stayed several nights and found it a beautifull decorated Riad, well established and a very friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent with good choise of food. Rooms very nice, but the shower was close to not working, very litte water and not enough hot water. 5 rooms and French owned. Location very central,

Will in spite of this recommend it for future stay. If you book it, call the owner directly and get a good price. We were picked up by a taxi at the train station and guided to the hotel, all organised by Mr. Eric, the owner. Will definit come back when in town. A positive experience.

Room Tip: Book direct with the owner who gives a good service.

I stayed with 4 other friends at this place for two nights in March, 2012. You'd never know a place like this exists in the middle of the chaotic area of the Marrakech marketplace. Even more surprisingly there was no outside noise, it was very quiet. The receptionist greeted us with a smile. He even cooked us a 'tagine' meal since there were only 6 rooms I recall and we had booked 4 of them. He also gave us directions and advised where to go and what to see in the city. I must say it's more of a romantic place to stay with a companion, not a place if you're looking for some partying. Getting back to it late at night after a night of dancing at a club is not the easiest because taxi's can't enter the market place and you'd get lost in between the pathways of Marrakech. Nonetheless it is a quiet, relaxing little oasis.

There's a saying to the effect that while the souk is pergatory, the riad is paradise.

We stayed four days at Raid Maipa this past July. It's a short walk from the main square, down a cobble-stone street lined with small shops. The street vibrates with locals, tourists, bicyclists, moped riders and the occasional cart - all in constant motion. After making a right onto a narrower and quieter street you enter a hallway and come to the riad.

The rooms surround a central courtyard, open to the heavens, anchored by a fountain and banana and orange trees. The five bedrooms can accomodate a total of 15 people, I believe. They are immaculate, comfortable and quiet. We opted to have breakfast and dinner there (and two lunches) and were never disappointed. The third floor has one bedroom, lounge chairs and a jaccuzzi with blissfully cool water. A stair leads to a small fourth floor that affords views over the city. Inside the riad you find peace.

The owner and the staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The owner, Eric, will help orient you to Marrakech and can suggest various day trips. One day we visited a city on the Atlantic coast, Essaouria, and on the other we went into the Atlas Mountains.

Raid Maipa was terrific. It was hard to leave paradise.

Room Tip: All the rooms have air conditioning. Still, in summer, when Marrakech is hot, the rooms on the second floor are likely cooler.
