I originally made my booking at the Riad Charai, however, upon arrival at the door of the riad I booked, I was told by a porter that the Riad was undergoing construction, and they would take us to their sister riad the Riad Shama. I was given NO prior notice whatsoever (the manager later claimed this was because the works...

Riad Shama is an excellent place to find tranquility in the middle of the bustling and chaotic Marrakech. It will take you around 15-20 mins to get to Medina. You have the option to take a taxi or bus as public transport. I tried the bus from Medina to the bus stop, ca 25 m away from the riad and...

We stayed here for our first visit to marrakech and it did not dissapoint. Located just out of the hustle and bustle of the main square it was a tranquil and serene escape. Very easy to find as near a main street and taxis all seem to know the place! The staff were amazing and couldnt have been more helpful....

I loved my time at the Riad Shama. It was quiet, cool, beautiful and relaxing. Staff were attentive, breakfast was nice, room was fantastic. The roof terrace is the perfect place for a glass of wine while to sun goes down!

I stayed here overnight last week, whilst on a motorcycle tour of Morocco. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were clean and food was excellent. Although being April the pool was chilly! After the madness of the Madina it's a real surprise to walk through the door into the peace and quiet of the hotel. As were...

Excellent service they arranged everything for us: excursions, restaurants, taxis. The bed and pillows were amazing, best I have slept in a long time! Bring your soap and shampoo though, as I couldn't figure out which one was what :) I recommend it 100% thanks to all the personnel, they were very nice and helpful.... And the massage was great!
