“Simple Riad in excellent location”
Reviewed 29 November 2010

On the plus side: the location is excellent, just a very short stroll from the Jemaa al Fna square and the souqs. The host, Rutger Jan takes excellent care of his guests. He knows the ins and outs of the city, will make reservations for you and help you find your way. He also made sure we had fresh roses in our room every day. Having breakfast on the roof terrace is a lovely way to start the day there.
On the negative side: the Riad has a spartan decoration with very little to remind you that you are in Marrakech. No decorations on the wall, plastic mats on the floor and IKEA bedside lamps. It all has a very cheap feel about it. The beds are very hard, the plumbing is temperamental and the chairs and sofas around the place are not comfortable.

Reviewed 24 November 2008

I can highly recommend to stay in Riad "Chambres D'Amis" in Marrakech, which is a lovely decorated riad. They do have 5 rooms, all with an own bath, the price for the room is between 55-85 €. The breakfast was ok, we had it on the roof terrace. You can also have dinner there, but we haven't tried it.
The rooms are spacious with a big bathroom, all made in tadelakt (Moroccan speciality). The patio is nice with a banana tree and you can sit down there and just relax.
The riad is situated only 2 minutes walk from Djemaa El Fna Square in the Derb Dabachi quarter. It is easy to find, once you have arrived there. I recommend to take an airport transfer because they will show you the way to the riad. It's not so easy to find the way the first time alone.
Although it is very near to Marrakech's main attraction you will find peace and calm in the riad, where you can have a rest from the trouble in the souks.
The only thing I disliked was e-mail communication. It didn't worked well, so I recommend to call them for reservation.
