This looked like a lovely Riad so my wife booked a packaged flight/ room reservation through Expedia. The trip was booked and confirmed through Expedia. We were very excited. Within a half hour the Le Riad Monecue emailed saying they had received multiple reservations nearly

Response from RM-management, Propriétaire at Le Riad Monceau
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Guests, Our clients' opinions are very useful - to us as well as to other travelers - so please let me thank you for writing this review. As stated by yourselves you didn't stay at our hotel. You made a booking request through a third part (Expedia) and as several requestes came in at the same time for only one room available we had to inform you with the very short delay of less than half an hour that we won't be able to welcome you. We also informed at the same time Expedia of the situation and advised them that we were of course ok for a 100% refund. It's true it then took almost 2 days to Expedia to react and definitely solve the problem. Expedia, not us and we are of course very sorry for this delay. You say poor management. We say efficient reaction : less than half an hour after you made your booking request you wre informed we coulnd't welcome you and Expedia was informed of the situation. You give us 1/5 but didn't stay at our hotel whist most our actual guests give us 5/5. I say this is unfair. Thank you to TripAdvisor to allow us this management’s response.

We did stay for three night in this nice riad. The riad itself is very nice, spotless and well maintained. But the staff especially the front desk needs a lot more training to fulfill the expectations given by the high price range. You can not ask five star money and deliver

This was my first stop on my tour of Morocco and it set the standard by which the rest of my accommodations were measured. A high bar. The included breakfast was plentiful (great orange juice) enough to set me up for the day. The top deck was great for improved WIFI (worked in

Overall great experience at Riad Monceau. Soufiane, the hotel's manager, made sure our stay was nothing short of spectacular. If you are looking for an authentic Riad experience in the heart of Marrakech's medina, look no further than Riad Monceau. We did the cooking class here

After long travels from the Sahara, we checked into this beautiful riad in the heart of Marrakech. We planned to nap in our hotel room until we were shocked with jack hammering right above our room. This went on a couple more times before I came outside and spoke with the

Yes. If I recall correctly, they provide you with Dammann Frères green tea - at least in the junior suite. Additionally, they'll welcome you with some Moroccan mint tea and pastries - at least, they did so with us.

The toiletries are really nice. Shampoo, soap, conditioner and body lotion. Very good quality with argan oil made in Morocco by les laboratoires azbane Hope that helps

We did exactly the same as you but try calling them anyway because their English is very good and they are very helpful. I suggest you make a note of their full telephone number in case you need to call them once you've arrived at the airport, we did because we couldn't find the right taxi driver. All sorted within 20 minutes though so no problem.

"My room was on the ground floor facing the pool and restaurant, no noise issues at all, occasional cigarrette smoke whiff."
"Best rooms are upstairs"
"There are only a few rooms and they are all excellent!"
"I think both rooms with access to the pool and the rooftop terrace are great."
"Pick one of the suites if you get a chance"
