From the moment we arrived at the Airport, to be greeted by a driver sent from the Riad to collect us, our four nights away proved to be an extremely relaxed experience. Location of the Riad was fairly central for the old town, less than fifteen minutes to the shiny new Airport. A very warm welcome by Michelle and Grant...

This riad is immaculate! It’s beautiful, in a great location, with friendly helpful staff, and I particularly would like to underscore one other thing – attention to details. It’s clear that the owners put much thought and effort and love into this place, and it shows! Anyone who is into interior design will certainly appreciate it. The décor and feel...

My husband and I have travelled the world staying in some of the very best hotels and never has a welcome been so genuine and warm. Michele and Grant are the perfect hosts. They take every care to ensure that each guest has the best possible stay at their beautiful riad. Their knowledge and love of Marrakesh is inspiring. From...

I again felt absolutely to be in the right place at Riad Assakina during my last stay in Marrakesh. Rarely have I seen a place as stylish, authentic and with such a welcoming atmosphere on my travels. Prime location in the Medina and luxurious breakfast round the experience. Michele, Grant and their staff all are fantastic hosts, very caring and...

Having stayed here 4 times in the last few years I can truly say that standards remain as high as ever and the breakfasts and afternoon tea are wonderful. Staff are obviously happy as I am always greeted by the same team. The hosts Michelle and Grant are incredible at making your stay special and my only complaint is that...

Riad Assakina more than lived up to our expectations. It's a true oasis inside the medina. Beautifully furnished and decorated in authentic and sumptuous Moroccan style, the whole place feels luxurious and extremely welcoming. The rooms were super, well equipped and a great size. I stayed there with my two teenage kids who thought it was great. We especially loved...

My husband and I absolutely love Riad Assakina, a luxurious intimate hotel, efficiently run by Grant and Michele. The suites are beautiful, the staff are friendly and efficient and the location in the Jewish Quarter is far enough away from the Medina to be peaceful, but not too far to be out of reach. We stayed at Riad Assakina for...

This nice warm riad really deserves #1 on Tripadvisor. You'll know why it is #1 for so long after a stay in the riad. The entrance of the riad is just steps from the road where taxis dropped me, I didn't have to walk through dark alleys. It is away from the busy area of the medina, so it is...

Firstly I want to applaud a personalised service provided by the owners (a lovely British couple) even prior to our arrival. Excellent communication and detailed support even before we arrived to their lovely Riad. Property is located literally 2 minutes from Bahia Palace ( one of the top attractions) and despite being so close to main attractions it was away...

After reading all the over-the-top reviews here - had high expectations. On the plus side - staff is friendly, breakfast is good. Location is perfect (minutes away from the Bahia and ElBadi palaces, main square, spice souk). Room was cramped. Checked in late (10pm) and was told all other rooms were 'taken' when I requested a room not on the...

We were obviously very disappointed to receive this review. The gentleman concerned booked our last & smallest room, on just a few days notice. The size of the room - a compact ground floor double with a 17sq.m floor area - was clearly shown when he made his reservation (along with a description, pictures etc.,). It obviously costs much less...
