We had a wonderful two days here. The staff were lovely and friendly. The rooms comfortable and traditional decor. Breakfast was wonderful buffet style. The roof terrace was heaven and perfect for sunbathing. We didnt bother with the pool as it was too chilly. Service was impeccable and staff were very helpful.

We just loved this little oasis in the middle of old town Marrakech, it took a bit of navigation on the first day to find our way around but that was a) just what happens when you are in Marrakesh and B) all part of the fun!! Marrakech can be a pretty daunting place to arrive in no matter what...

Lovely Riad with a very friendly team who helped with recommendations, bookings and information. Enjoyed being close enough to everything but in quiet corner of Marrakech, with less of the hustle and bustle. Very comfortable room and lovely breakfast.

We stayed at Riad Shemsi early October. It is a beautiful Riad with very friendly staff, comfortable rooms and delicious food. The location is great, as it is in the Medina but not right next to the main square (15 min walk) meaning you can still relax in the busy city! Would 100% recommend it to anyone can't wait to...

I booked this riad for its location: still in the Medina but close to the new city and in particular the conference venue of COP 22, a big climate conference. It was a 20-minute walk, and although Riad Shemsi is located at the end of one of the Medina's windy maze pathways, one of the women working at the riad...

The Riad Shemsi is an oasis of cool and calm right in the heart of the hustle and bustle that is Marrakech. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The only criticism would be that the bed was really quite hard. Would recommend requesting one of the larger rooms.

Further to our 3 night stay in the Widiane Suits and hotel as part of a holiday booked through secret escapes we were transferred to the Roah Shemsi in the heart of Marrakesh. Upon arrival we walked through a shabby looking door to be met with an oasis of calm. We were given some mint tea and local pastries before...

This is a lovely calm and relaxing riad. The welcome and service is exceptionally friendly and helpful. It provided to be a superb base from which we could explore Marrakech and then retreat to when we had enough of the hustle-and-bustle of the city.

This was a 2 night stay following 5 nights in the High Atlas at a very remote resort - suffice to say, Shemsi couldn't be more of a contrast to where we came from. We arrived mid afternoon, and the driver stopped in a tiny side street and called Shemsi for someone to come e and fetch us - we...

Visited for a short break with my daughter early October. Riad Shemsi is beautiful,tranquil and relaxing we couldn't believe how peaceful the roof terrace was and the pool a lovely bonus when its 30 degrees. Tagine on first night was delicious!
