This is a very welcoming Riad in the heart of the Medina. The staff were all very attentive and could not do enough for us to make our stay an enjoyable one. The courtyard and terrace were lovely and breakfast was excellent, setting s up well for the day ahead. The owners were charming and have done a great job...

I wanted to thank everyone at Riad Alwachma for a truly wonderful holiday. The Riad is beautiful, with comfortable bedrooms, a delightful terrace, excellent breakfasts, but most importantly, exceptionally friendly and welcoming service. All the staff worked hard to help us have a memorable stay, which we did, and I will certainly recommend it to everyone. Thank you so much....

Liked the location. Really like the rooms. Great common sitting area with fireplace. Best Reception. Location was perfect for me but might turn off those used to chic neighbourhoods. For us, it was a perfect place as we walked to most places recommended by friends and by guide books.

I was a solo traveller staying here in January 2013. Overall I was very happy with my stay. The Riad is well located - about a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el-Fnaa. Close, but far enough away to be peaceful. The inside of the Riad was very peaceful, clean and tastefully decorated. It was a pleasure to return here after...

My children, my wife and myself enjoyed the time passed in Riad Al-Wachma. the personal was friendly and helpful. We really appreciated the decoration, the quietness...it takes us back centuries. Also, it's in the middle of the town of Marakeche and near to the typical square of Jamaa El-Fna (10 minutes walking). P.S: if you want to stay more then...

The riad is a very friendly family run business with approximately 6 rooms? The desk staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist with tourist info, directions, cups of tea and general good service. The riad is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and has a lovely inner courtyard. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. After battling round the souks all day it was lovely to come back to such a peaceful little haven. The staff were great, food was excellent, rooms clean and comfy.

This review is based only on my experience with Riad Alwachma in trying to make a cancellation to the hotel. I'll start by saying I appreciated that the management reached out to me personally after I booked the room to offer taxi service and dinner. We, unfortunately, had to cancel our trip to Morocco at the last minute. I'd made...

We stayed three nights at this lovely riad a short walk all from the main square and souks. It was amazing going through the door to the tranquil calm from the hectic life outside. The room was very nice and the service attentive. At night all the candles and tea lights give a lovely atmosphere. This is a great place...
