I stayed here for four nights with a friend - the place is shabby chic, with the most lovely hostess, Ibtisam, who collects you from the taxi, makes mint tea and breakfast and keeps the place clean and tidy. She took us to a bureau de change - no commission - and showed us the route to the main square...

My family stayed at this Riad in the heart of the media in Marrakech. What a beautiful place and the hostess was amazing. She met us with coffee and mint tea and was there for us for the remainder of the day. She prepared a wonderful breakfast and arranged for a valet to take our bags on a cart when...

My friend and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for a weekend and had a grand old time. There are not many rooms so if you're lucky, as we were, you'll have the whole place to yourself. We spent the evenings on the roof where there were brilliant views across the rooftops of Marrakech before going out for...

This Riad is a very pleasant place to be - quiet in a hectic town, very centrally located, with nice bedrooms, marrocan style and good wifi connection. Kept very clean by our friendly hostess, who also accompanied us a first time to the central market, provided nice breakfasts in the morning, and arranged for transfer to and from the airport.

We spent a wonderful 10 days here. Ibtizam, our host provided lovely breakfasts and even stayed overnight to be able to make breakfast for us before our 7am departure. She also organised our transfers and a day trip to Essaouira. The Riad itself was cool even during some very hot days and we hardly used the air-conditioning in our bedroom....

One word - amazing! The decor, the atmosphere, the staff - everything was wonderful. You're in the heart of the medina but the riad still feels peaceful and secluded. Great views from the rooftop terrace of mountains that surround the city.

Communication with the riad owners was very good and they answered all questions prior to our visit. They even arranged a birthday cake and bottle of wine at a small charge- thank you :) We arranged transfers through the riad owners and were met by the housekeeper so found it easily. We booked the whole riad for a 3 night...

Loved this place so close to the main square and amenities but also a quiet oasis. Perfect for small groups as you can hire the whole riad with 4 bedrooms and 3 ensuite. Thoroughly enjoyed the roof terrace where we congregated at the end of the day.

The Riad is very central located, and once you are in you can mostly forget the rush at the Marrakech main streets (just 50 or 100 meters from the Riad). The woman attending us was the whole time ready to help, also with things that weren't actually her job to do. We had the breakfast everyday ready at the time...

We were a group of 10 people and spend 10 days at Riad des Droles and enjoyed it a lot. Our host was very friendly and helpful. The house is quiet inside and from the rooftop terasse you have a lovely view. I highly recommend it!
