Very good location, 2 minutes walk from Jemma El fna square. Doesn't look like much from outside but when you step inside, it's beautiful! Very friendly staff! Can't do enough! Would recommend if wanting to stay in the medina!

This wasn't my first visit to Marrakech, my previous visit I stayed in Palmeraire which was a bit quiet, so chose the Medina this time. The Medina delivered exactly what I expected, 24/7 insanity which I like, although please be warned you will be challenged by various African nations every 10ft, they're harmless but can be irritating when it gets...

We stayed three nights in a beautiful duplex suite on the second floor. Extremely clean, excellent king size bed, and nicely decorated. The staff was super friendly and attentive to every need. It was wonderful coming back to a peaceful swimming pool after walking in the Medina. The pool is small but it serves its purpose. We had breakfast by...

In the very special city of Marrakech, the Riad option is the best. In my opinion, (I am a frequent traveller of 5* hotels) that s the best way to live the "Medina" experience. This Riad is a tipical Marrakesh villa with a central court (and a small but nice swimming pool). You see nothing from the outside but a...

The Riad was simply perfect. The staff was super nice. Everything was clean and everyone was super helpfully. When we wanted to do trips, the staff helped and planned it immediately. When there were problems, it was their biggest pleasure to help. Thank you for making our journey to Marrakech that awesome. :)

This riad really made our Marrakech experience. The rooms are spacious, elegant, and fully air-conditioned. The staff is friendly and helpful. The terrace offers beautiful views of the city, and all rooms open up to the courtyard pool (or a balcony overlooking the pool). The location is very central, though you have to look for the door to know you're...

I order room on hotels.com, but quickly get a E-mail where the staff at the Riad offers to pick me up at the airport. Nice i think. Are you good at bargaining, you can clear 50 dirham from the airport to Hotel Tazi located 200 meters from the riad. But normally it costs 100 dirhams by taxi. Al Assala offering...
