Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2012

first time in North Africa and what an experience!
good job we had arranged airport transfers with the Riad as would still be looking for it now.
down the alleyway to a 'door in the wall', then open sesame and into a most wonderful Riad with helpful staff
we stayed in the ground floor Wahid room which was excellent - big bed
Boujeema was the manager who was excellent, arranging a guide on the first day (Abdoul who had excellent English) - think that this is a must for first timers to get to know the city- a trip into the Ourika valley on the second day with Mohammed, again an unforgettable experience.
third day we did our own thing which was good.
breakfasts were extremely good and sorry that we missed the cookery course
the rest of the staff - Ahmed, Sabria, Imane and Ghita made our stay comfortable and were pleasant and friendly
thanks to all for a memorable time and would recommend Riad Diana for its position, decor and staff
hope to return one day

Room Tip: probably miss the penthouse as the roof is used by other guests, but great for breakfasts and coffee...

We stayed 4 nights at the Riad Diana and were made to feel welcome as soon as we stepped through the door. The service was excellent and we felt very much at home. Our first room was on the terrace which was very nice but unfortunately the weather was not as warm as we hoped so we were unable to fully appreciate what it had to offer. On the second day, we were asked if we would like to move downstairs which we decided to do and the ground floor room was lovely. We took advantage of the cookery class and it was a good choice, including the trip to the market to buy the provisions. Be prepared if you choose to cook chicken!!!
The staff were lovely-attentive without being intrusive and I can truly say we received .first class service As other reviewers have said, this is a quiet oasis amid all the hustle and bustle of the medina. We would thoroughly recommend.

All you need for a pleasant stay, Riad Diana can offer it. It has a perfect location in the center of the Medina, near the Djemaa El Fnaa and close to the important places. The people of the riad are very friendly and offer you a very good service. The food is absolutly delicious. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. You have the possibility to book different excursions, cooking classes or the
typical hammam, very nice!

I would give everybody the adress of Riad Diana to stay there during their trip in Marrakesh!

We loved our stay at Riad Diana. The staff were warm and welcoming, looking after all our needs during our four day stay. And the location could not be better for accessing the main sites and sounds of Marrakech.

The room itself (the ground floor Wahid room) was extremely comfortable and spacious, with one of the largest beds I have seen!

The hammam and massage were superb - a really relaxing way to finish our stay before heading back to the airport.

Our only regret was that we were unable to join the cookery class as we had so much else we wanted to explore around this vibrant and stimulating city.

We would go back to the Riad Diana without hesitation.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, and the photos on the Riad Diana website (http://www.charming-riads-in-marra...

We stayed here for a joint birthday/anniversary holiday. Thoroughly recommend having the hotel arrange taxi pick-up else yo'd be very hard pressed to find it yourself. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and always available, especially good seeing as the riad only has 5 rooms.

We had the room on the roof which was lovely, if compact, and had the run of the terrace while we were there which was great. Breakfasts were good, varied and tasty. We had the hammam and massage which were brilliant, felt really soft and relaxed afterwards. We did the cooking lesson and made the best meal of our stay! Visiting the market to get the ingredients was an eye-opener, you'd have to be quite brave to choose chicken...

We ate most lunchtimes at Cafe de Place Des Ferblantiers which was excellent value with a tagine for under three pounds. Djemaa el-Fna was an experience as were the souks. You have to be very firm to get a bargain and the constant hassling from peddlers , some 5 or 6 years old, gets a bit wearing. Some of the guide books recommend visiting the fixed price stores, these are actually more expensive in most cases.

Anyway, all-in-all we'd go back and stay at the Riad Diana again and probably take some trips up into the mountains or into the desert to get more of a feel for the country away from the hustle-bustle of Marrakech.

I stayed at the Riad Diana just after Christmas - the trip was a treat for my Mum and we had a wonderful stay. The staff are friendly, and those on the front desk speak excellent English so all our questions were answered. They're super organised; we were emailed in advance by the Riad and pre-booked airport pick up and drop off, our first evening meal, a day trip to Essaouira, and a cooking lesson. Ahmed took Mum and I through a food market frequented by locals, where we picked out all our ingredients, and then we cooked and ate the best meal of our trip. The location is in the heart of narrow market streets, which we loved as we felt like part of the action! The only downside is the breakfast: if you are wheat or gluten intolerant then you will find the three types of wheat products served to each person (usually croissant, pancake and bread roll) a challenge! Mum had never travelled outside western Europe before, and the staff made her feel well looked after! Thank you Riad Diana xx

Room Tip: We were in the room on top of the roof! In summer, you would lack a little privacy with people righ...
