Stayed a year and a half ago, but doing lots of reviews at once. Really helpful owner and team, large sympathetically decorated if not a little basic room. Great views over the city, and perfect location. We went in feb so too cold for swimming etc, but that is the only compromise. Refreshing change to the chains, very personalised trip.

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in May. The hotel was ideal for our requirements. It was a 2 minute walk from the square which was brilliant because the week we were there it was unusually hot for the time of year (104 degrees), so we could return easily to cool off with the air conditioning in our...

I would highly recommend this Riad to anyone. It is conveniently located and within short walking to all the major sights, stone's throw away from Djemaa El-Fna, all the amenities you would expect in a modern set up, including round the clock wifi. But what made it all memorable were the people who run the place, Cristelle and Abas. Their...

I booked the hotel by e mailing them directly and managed to get a decent discount. Cristelle got in touch with me as soon as the room was booked and booked a taxi and rental car for us in advance.

The riad is beautifully decorated, very calm and welcoming. Its the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the action but also want to be able to retreat to an oasis of calm and comfort in the evenings. As there are only 5 rooms you're treated like a special guest and well looked after and it's...

Tranquil oasis of calm a two minute walk from the bustling Jemaa Al Fna square. Perfectly situated and full of character. Although Cristelle has only been running the riad since last October she was the perfect hostess and was always very helpful, informative and friendly - she even greeted us on the first night with a mint tea! Well worth...

Riad Abad was an excellent place to stay. The owner of the Riad organized a taxi to pick us up from the airport and we arrived at the Riad in about 20 minutes. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the owner and offered mint tea and some Moroccan sweets. She asked us whether this was our first time to Marrakech...

A home away from home. The location cannot be better. You roll out of bed and land virtually into the Jamaa AlFnaa hustle and bustle. The riad was clean and well kept. Service was great and so were the hosts. They picked us up at our point of arrival with little notice and before we knew it, we were at...
