This Riad is simply delightful. If I ever come back to Marrakech I would most likely come back to this Riad even with all of the other options out there. The staff here are incredible. You are always greeted with a smile and treated as a valued guest. The rooms are clean and very nice. There is a pool in...

JJ was very responsive, the room was nice and the little pool in the middle was cute / not too cold . The rooftop view isn't the most spectacular, as you can't see much beyond your immediate rooftop but it has a breeze for warm weather visits.

Dear Sir. How sorry I am to read your comment. But is your comment very fair ? ? When you choose to pay a price under the market price and at a very low fare. You should be honest with yourself.

The manager Jean Jaques took a lot of time to talk and converse about the city, country, culture and history. It was very helpful to get a feeling of being welcome in the country. The typical food was excellent prepared by Neeza. We would definitely recommend the stay. It's easy to find from the main Square!

We had a great stay of one night there. The room was very nice, spa&cious and clean. The traditional morrocoan breakfast was great. The location is quiet, but yet near the main sights. The staff members were very helpful, and even brought us to a restaurant in the evening.

Excellent service by Eunice and his team. They consistently went above and beyond in providing a wonderful stay at this beautiful Riad, conveniently located a few hundred meters from Jemaa el Fna in the center of the medina. Food was excellent as well. The entrance is unassuming and there is a dirt construction lot right next to the Riad but...

the Riad itself was nice and the location was good but the management and organisation was bad. They provided drinks and shieshas, along with organising trips for us but they charged exorbitant pricing for each item. They had no available list of prices and we did ask for most things but occasionally quite basic things were charged at extremely high...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riad des Arts is a traditional riad in Marrakesh. Located just a few steps from the Jamaa El Fna square, not far from Bahia Palace, this inviting boutique riad stands within the narrow streets of the city's medina. There are palaces and souks close by, and the riad is ideally placed for exploring the Ourika valley and the Ouzoud. Airport transfers are available to guests. The hotel terrace offers sweeping views of the medina and the tip of the Koutoubia Mosque. Guests can relax on the solarium and in the hammam, taking in the mesmerising vistas, before retiring to the patio, where palm trees and touches of authentic Morocco frame the glistening pool. Guestrooms at the luxury Riad des Arts are immersed in Moroccan style. Interiors drenched in warm shades feature comfortable furnishings and modern amenities, such as WiFi access. The hotel's two salons offer homely comfort, complete with art deco armchairs, televisions and a fireplace ... more   less

“Don't believe them if they say the room you booked is unavailable, demand to see it. The best room is the Arcade room in terms if aesthetics, but it doesn't have A/C. And demand for toiletries otherwise they won't provide it. That's IF you stay here - you're better off going somewhere else!!”
