The riad is a very friendly family run business with approximately 6 rooms? The desk staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist with tourist info, directions, cups of tea and general good service. The riad is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and has a lovely inner courtyard. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. After battling round the souks all day it was lovely to come back to such a peaceful little haven. The staff were great, food was excellent, rooms clean and comfy.

This review is based only on my experience with Riad Alwachma in trying to make a cancellation to the hotel. I'll start by saying I appreciated that the management reached out to me personally after I booked the room to offer taxi service and dinner. We, unfortunately, had to cancel our trip to Morocco at the last minute. I'd made...

We stayed three nights at this lovely riad a short walk all from the main square and souks. It was amazing going through the door to the tranquil calm from the hectic life outside. The room was very nice and the service attentive. At night all the candles and tea lights give a lovely atmosphere. This is a great place...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Riad Alwachma from 8 to 13 November 2012. The accommodation was fantastic in terms of facilities and cleanliness. Our room (Amal) was the smallest (and cheapest), but was big enough to relax in and very comfortable. It looked onto the main courtyard and was very quiet. Other rooms, I noticed, had small windows out...

I am just back from four nights at the Riad Alwachma with two friends that flew over to meet me from Barcelona. I had to chose the riad we were going to stay in so I was a bit nervous about making the right choice. We couldn't have been happier! The correspondence with the owner, Anne Helene, was really helpful...

The Riad Alwachma is conveniently situated in the Medina and a quick ten minute walk will find you at the Jemaa El Fna and its labyrinthian souks. Our hosts Jérôme and  Anne Hélène made us feel truly welcome. Meeting us upon our arrival with cups of Berber Whiskey (hot sugar sweetened mint tea),  Jérôme provided us with a map and many helpful...

This riad was stunning. This was my first visit to Marrakech with my friend and we were warmly welcomed. The riad arranged airport transfers and everything was explained to us upon arrival. We were given a map and talked through recommendations for sites to visit. The treatments were heavenly and the food was amazing. Breakfast on the terrace was a...

We have just returned from a 2 night stay here with teenagers and can find no faults at all. The riad is very clean, well managed and all the staff are welcoming and helpful.
