The staff are experts at customer service, the Mgr Patrice, his assistant Ibrahim made us feel so welcome and it really felt like a home from home. The Riad is enchanting, with great air con which we really appreciated. The roof terraces...

My wife and I went to Marrakech for the first time. We loved the city and the atmosphere. And we also loved our Riad. The location was really good (10 minute walk to the heart of MK), in a place that always seemed absolutely safe for tourists. The only caveat is that for the come back to the hotel late...

A beautiful riad in a great location - just a 10 minute walk from the main square in the medina. The riad in general is beautiful and the room we had in the modern part of the riad was lovely.

We stayed here for 4 nights, booked through BA holidays. It was a perfect hideaway, down a maze of alleyways. Once through the busy, and sometimes, smelly souk, you are greeting by a peaceful & tranquil courtyard, where upon checking in are served mint tea and asked to fill out the paperwork. You are then giving a tour, shown your...

We spent 4 nights at Riad Ambre et Epices in May 2014. We traveled with family and stayed in 3 rooms in the more traditional side of the riad. After reading online reviews regarding the more modern annex, I was worried I would be disappointed with our rooms. However, I ended up liking the more traditional side of the riad...

We stayed here for 3 nights for a short break to Marrakesh. The location is perfect! It is just under 15 mins walk from the main square and souks and still in the old town so plenty of the old atmosphere. At first the narrow alleys are daunting but you get used to it. The Riad is clean and spacious....

We felt like we were in an Indiana Jones movie, driving into the Medina in Marrakesh. Our GPS couldn't find the location, cars, motorcycles, and pedestrians were going every which way at full speed, and finally we just parked and asked a young kid to take us to the Parking "Maison d'Arabe." We twisted and turned like lunatics and about...
