“Excellent Riad in the Medina”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We stayed at the Riad over the New Year for our second visit to Marrakech and it was a fantastic experience. We stayed with our 6 year old son and enjoyed the Riad's close proximity to the Square and the New City, Gueliz. Khamisa was particularly helpful and made us feel very welcome and recommended some excursions and places to eat. We highly recommend this Riad for those looking for a welcoming Riad at the heart of Medina, right next to local shops and markets.

After looking at loads of reviews, we finally settled on the Riad Pachavana and it turned out to be an excellent choice for our family Xmas break. this was our first time in Morocco and all the staff made us feel so welcome. The Riad is ideally placed for all the main attractions, only about 20 mins from the main square, and about the same to the Majorelle Gardens in the other direction. It is also a haven of calm after the noise and bustle of the city. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean, also nice and big; ours were in the first floor overlooking the courtyard and pool. the road organised a christmas Eve dinner with traditional entertainment, really good fun; they were also very helpful in booking taxis for trips out and recommending restaurants - thanks Natalie. We spent Christmas Day in the Atlas Mountains - blue skies and sunshine and Christmas lunch eaten outside! We also visited Essaouira a long journey but well worth it - lovely fishing port and load to see. We will definitely recommend this Riad to our friends and hopefully one day will return.

Room Tip: look on the website, all the rooms are shown - we were able to choose the rooms we wanted, so that w...

The whole team and I thank you very much for your comments regarding your stay at Riad Pachavana. The dinner show for Christmas Eve actually had great success with all our guests and we are delighted. I just brings a small correction to your comment: it is Khamissa, our manager at the riad, allowing you and given all the good advice for your stay. I unfortunately was not present at this time.
We would be happy to see you again one day at Riad Pachavana and wish you a wonderful New Year.

I did LOTS of research and ended up choosing to stay at Riad P. We loved it there & felt "at home". The service & people their are GREAT! I've been to LOTS of places, but this was
SUPER! Location is within walking distance of Markets, neat sites, etc. I got the "real feel" of this great city. Staying in a typical hotel would NOT have been the same. I miss it & readsy to go back there!

Thank you to Rashid and Hamiza for your hospitality. Great place to stay and in the perfect location to explore both the old Medina and the new city, on top of this everyone was incredibly helpful with organising taxis, reccomending great places to eat (Yacout if you are there is amazing!) and for organising our amazing city tour with Mustafa.

If I was to go back to Marrakech I would definately stay here again.

This was the perfect destination for our long weekend break in Marrakech. This beautiful riad is tucked away behind an unassuming door off a pedestrianised lane (there is a short walk to and from the taxi). The ground floor is tastefully appointed with tables and chairs around the pool and lovely alcove seating and planting. This area is cool and welcoming by day and simply beautiful in the evening with exquisite locally made lighting. Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so happy - with a particular mention to Abdul for his helpful advice on what to see, and directions on how to get there.

We were fortunate to meet the owners, Natalie and Thierry who made us so welcome - thank you!

Room Tip: All the rooms look beautiful. We had the only room on the third floor (top floor) which also has sun...

We stayed for 3 nights on May 2013. We arranged the pick up service from the airport. We actually had made a reservation to stay in the Riad l'Orchidée but there was a problem with the reservation and they kindly offered us to stay at the Riad Pachavana instead. We got a free update to the junior suite.

The hotel is situated in the center of Marrakech, near the souks and 10-15 min walk from Jemaa El Fna square. The area may be a bit shocking in the beginning but it is a safe area and very close to the interesting spots. There are many small stores around where you can buy some drinks or food.

The staff in the hotel is excellent and speak some english and spanish. They were so personal and friendly that made us feel at home.

The junior suite room had beautiful decoration and was modern, clean and very confortable. There were ammenities provided (the orange scented shampoo, gel, body milk and soap smelled incredibly good), bathrobes, slippers and hairdryer in the room. The room has a safe box.

The breakfast variety and quality of the products was very good. Each day we were offered different specialities such as M'smmens and baghrirs.

I really recommend this place.

We had a great time at Riad Pachavana! The room was beautiful and the staff were friendly and helpful. In a quiet location about 15 minutes walk from the main square, very relaxing after the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Would definitely stay there again.
