We arrived home today from our holiday in Marrakech, where we stayed at Riad Diana. I booked this Riad on the strength of the previous reviews and it was a good decision because this Riad is beautiful.
We booked the Arbour suite as we travelled with our teenage son and he had his own room. The suite was lovely with beautiful decor and comfortable beds. It felt like staying in someone's home as it had lovely personal touches and not like the anonymous experience of staying in a large hotel. The Riad is centred round a court yard with tables and chairs and a plung pool. There is also a cosy dining room with a tv and arm chairs. We ate in the Riad twice and had amazing, home cooked meals. They were probably the best meals we had during our stay.
What really made this Riad special was the staff, who were fronted by Boujammaa who runs the Riad and worked so hard to make us feel at home. It was my birthday while we were there and the staff presented me with a birthday cake on the day and also put flowers in our suite. They were all so kind and I cannot find any fault with our stay with these lovely people.
The Riad is on a narrow cobbled street in the Medina only five minutes from Jemmaa el fna, so it's location was excellent. Although it is down a quiet ally, we never felt nervous as there appears to be very little obvious crime in the city. The shop keepers all call to you to try to drum up business, but it is not aggressive and if you are firm they will leave you alone.
We dis all the usual sites in Marrakeck such as the Badii palace, the museum, the mosque and the medersa Ben yousef which are all woth a visit and within walking distance of the Riad. Jemmaa el fna is just amazing and we spent time during the day and evening just soaking up the atmosphere. Look out for the Marrakech version of hook a duck, which our son loved. It's a game where you have to try to hook a bottle do pop with a fishing rod and all the locals join in. We sat with a group of musicians in the square and as long as you understand you need to pay ten to twenty dirham to watch an activity, you can spend as much time as you wish.
We found the Marrakechies so friendly and proud of their city. We got chatting to a teacher in a local cafe who gave us some tips. He recommended two restaurants in Jemmaa el fna, which were both good. tourcal and chez Chegouni were both good and so cheap. We ate in tourcal for £12 for three of us including soft drinks. No alcohol in the restaurants, but the Riad serve wine and beer and Boujammaa was happy for us to put our own in their fridge. We bought some at duty free and would recommend doing this, as the only place we found selling drinks was kosy bar outside the Riad. Kosy bar is worth a visit as you can sit on the foor terrace with a drink and watch the stalks flying to their nests on the Badii palace next door. It's in the place ferbrantieres where they make the lovely metal lamps and there are also some nice snack bars there for a tasty, cheap lunch.
We did an excurtion to the cascades of ouzoud with Riad Diana which wes amazing and I would recommend. The cascades are amazing, but what really made our day was feeding the wild monkeys on the walk round the cascades. You will need strong shoes and some energy as its not an easy climb, but so worth it. Do take some nuts or bananas for the monkeys and they will take them gently out of your hands.
We fell in love with Marrakech and with Riad diana and will definitely return. Dont stay at this Riad or any other if you want a high tech hotel with advanced facilities. Book this Riad if you want to really experience the real Marrakech and be welcomed by some of the nicest, kindest people you could wish to meet. A big thank you to Boujammaa and all the staff for a wonderful trip.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked lovely, but the Arbour suite is the only one with two separate bedrooms and could sleep a family of four.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this riad and honestly cannot fault it. Found the location perfect to reach the main square. The staff couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. There were 3 of us staying in the triple room and it had ample space. We had a meal at the Riad one night which was served on the terrace and was really lovely. The owner Boujamaa spoke very good english and was very helpful from organising airport transfers to arranging a driver and guide to get to Atlas mountains. Everyone at this Riad were very pleasant and we will definetely be back .

Three corners from the busy and noisy street this Riad is as quiet as heaven. Mr Buschmann (phonetically I hope we hit the correct form of addressing) and Mr. Badda were great help, if it was getting bus-tickets for an excursion or securing taxi-service. We enjoyed the candle-dinner. the table decorated with rose-blössoms and the food deliciously prepared by Sabriya, much better than in a tourist-filled restaurant. My wife also enjoyed the hammam plus massage, and I certify that her skin afterwards was perfect! We were lucky to have been recommended the Riad Diana, only a few minutes' walk away from the vibrating center of this impressive city.

My sister and I decided on a mini-break to Marrakesh and staying at the Riad Diana was the perfect choice! It's in a perfect location, just a 5 minute walk to the main square and souks yet completely serene. Boujamaa and his team where the perfect hosts going out of their way to accomodate us and make us feel at home at every opportunity, especially on a couple of very early mornings. I highly recommend trying the dinner - fantastic! We stayed in the room on the terrace which had a very relaxed feel and it was nice to be 'outdoors'.
I will definitely be recommending Riad Diana to friends and family. Thank you for a great stay!

We just returned from our wonderful holidays in marrakech. Riad Diana ist a perfect place to stay, it is very nearby the big place, just some minutes to walk.

The rooms are very nice decoratet and Boujamaa and his team, they are so helpful, really nice and perfect.

We specially liked the hammam and massage afterwards aswell as the cooking class we booked directly in Riad Diana! The food relly was excellent and the decoration of the desk was beautiful!

The terrace on the roof of the Riad Diana ist a peaceful place to stay and rest for a while from the busy medina. The location ist perfect, very nearby the Jemna el Fna and the Souks, it`s just a five minutes walk!

Leaving after a week was a little bit hard, so we will come back soon:-)

Thank you very much Boujamaa for all, we hope we will see you and your stuff soon!
