I totally agree with everything that is said about Riad Lorsya - we had 3 nights there last week and it was fantastic. We could not have wanted anything more. Our first trip to Marrakech was made very special by the way that Ilyas, Abdul and the girls will do anything to make your stay perfect. It was also fun to have a traditional dinner with the other guests at the Riad on our 2nd night which was included in the price.

Definitely have a taxi collect you at the airport as it is very tricky to find first time as you come through the markets by foot - once you arrive at the Riad you are in a lovely little peaceful and beautiful place. Would recommend a trip to the Atlas Mountains (arranged by Ilyas) although make sure you wear sturdy shoes if you are going to climb up to the waterfall - also Le Comptoir for dinner/belly dancing was very good. One thing we were not expecting was all the scooters everywhere - look out as they come from every angle!! We had a wonderful time in Marrakech and would definitely recommend the Riad Lorsya without hesitation.

We spent 4 wonderful nights at Riad Lorsya last week, and we wish it had been longer.
I travel a lot for work, and this is hands down one of the most wonderful little places I have stayed. Abdul, Elyas, and the girls go out of there way to make you feel you are in a home away from home. There a hundreds of Riads in Marrakech, but I can't imagine that you would be better looked after than in this one. I deserves to be higher up the list. Book early though! There are only 4 beautiful rooms, and you don't want to be disappointed :-/

We have just arrived back from the best holiday we have ever had. This riad is stunning. We only had a week but had wished we stayed for 2. It is so clean and tidy everywhere - staff were only too pleased to assist you with anything.

What can I say – the Riad Lorsya is wonderful. The room we had was gorgeous and perfect as a peaceful base in a very full on city. My husband our 11 year old daughter and myself where made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for Abdul to organize from restaurant bookings to taxi pick ups. The ladies kept us topped up with coffee and mint tea as and when and made sure our room was clean and tidy for our return after a hard days shopping – I cant thank them enough.
The evening meal provided was lovely and set a high bench mark for the week – and the breakfast was great, fresh orange juice, mint tea, coffee, hot chocolate, yogurt, fruit, pancakes and fresh bread a great start to each day.
One touch which really made it for us was being given a mobile phone number we could call at anytime in case of emergency or even if we where just lost – we didn’t use it but knowing we had it was good. In saying that, I felt safe at all times in Marrakesh during the day and after dark wondering through the small alleyways back to Riad Lorsya. If cant decide where to stay just stop searching now as I’m convinced you cant do better then Riad Lorsya.

What can I say about the Riad that hasn’t already been covered. It is bliss. My friend and I stayed in the Rose and Orient room respectively and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. So much so we joke about going back daily. It’s quiet, immaculately clean, comfortable and as the Moroccans’ say ‘ it is your home’. The roof terrace is delightful and worth a visit after sunset to relax and listen to the sounds.

The staff are wonderful, Ilyas and Abdul are fabulous and couldn’t be more helpful, nothing is too much trouble and the mint tea is gorgeous.

Location is perfect, right in the middle of the souks and yet far enough away (down a quiet alley) to have some peace. It’s five mins walk to the main square where all the mayhem that is Marrakech is unveiled.

Advice.
• Definitely take up the offer for collection from the airport, it’s worth every euro. When dropped off by the tax and picked up by the man in the cart be prepared to have to tip him! 20-40 Dirham needed
• The first night it’s worth finding a restaurant with a view of the night market to get a ‘feel’ for how things work
• A big smile and a ‘no thank’ is all that is really needed to get by in the souks – everyone is friendly ( they’re just trying to make a living)
• Find the Kosybar near the Badhii Palace square – it’s a lovely calm oasis above the square where all the lanterns are made
• The breakfast is delicious – fill up, it’ll keep you going!

And remember if you get lost Ilyas and Abdul give you their number and will come and rescue you if needed.

Finally.... when can I go back?

It is a superb setting in Marrakech right by the souks and main square. Abdul and all the staff couldn't do more for you. It is a beautiful Riad with superb furniture, a lovely roof area to relax, and the staff will make you tea, coffee whenever you like.

The only things you need to know, and this isnt really a problem if you know in advance, is that the way the Riad is designed the noise echos and so if you can hear everything in the main area in your room, and if you are there for a romantic time, the next door rooms will be able to hear you. Also again not a problem for everyone, there is no radio or TV in the room. So you get total relaxation.

The only problem we had was that they didn't take Visa when we got there to pay, which came as a shock booking via Expedia, but they were so helpful with this, even when I had problems with the cashpoints Ilyas the manager let me use his mobile to call my bank in England.

In summary, it's a fantastic place, and definitely book the cab with them, as it's a hell of a place to find first time!
