We loved Riad Awa! It was like being in someone's house, but with privacy. The staff were ALL so friendly and welcoming, they were really helpful with booking excursions and recommendations etc. The riad is kept very clean and it's in a great location in The Medina. Close enough to walk anywhere but far enough out of the hustle and bustle. The staff were also great with our 20 month old and he loved it there too. Many roads won't allow children in case they disturb the other guests. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely go back, we had an amazing trip thanks to them!

I spent 3 days and 3 nights at Riad Awa for my birthday earlier in July. What a lovely place! The staff were very welcoming on arrival and were very attentive in helping with activities, restaurants and generally making the stay very comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The secret escapes offer we had allowed us to sample the hammam offered at the Riad and we also had a wonderful massage to follow. The Riad is well placed to get to the Souks and also to journey outside of the city very easily as well, the Atlas mountains are a must if you have the time. I'd definitely return!

Just arrived home after spending 2 days and 2 nights at the lovely Riad Awa. It is perfectly located, and a beautiful oasis in the city. The whole place is calming and cool, the rooms are generous and well designed and the roof terrace is amazing, breakfast there was one of the highlights. The staff were brilliant, can't rate this place enough, we had a fantastic time.

Room Tip: Look at all the rooms on their website, dont think you can go far wrong

Browsed through most of the Airbnb and Booking.com listings before choosing Riad Awa for a 3-nights stay in the Medina in Marrakech.

Riad Awa lived up to and exceeded my expectations. I was looking for something modern, well designed, roof top terrace and completely hassle free. Riad Awa was this and more.

The staff had arranged with airport transfer which I highly recommend (€15/170dhr), it's not the cheapest option (but correct price) but trust me it's worth it not having to haggle with the taxi drivers and navigating your way in the Medina is impossible.

They also arranged with a lovely dinner at the roof top terrace at my arrival, again correctly priced in my view.

I can praise the staff enough, they are incredible and will make everything to ensure you have the best stay ever.

The place is just fabulous, from the moment you step inside the door throughout your whole stay. You will not be disappointed.

I was there for my birthday and it was just magical, the staff had arranged with 30 white roses, dinner and breakfast on the roof top near the pool.

The location is great just inside the old city walls (Medina) in the less busy Kasbah area.

If you are looking to stay in a Riad in the Medina, that is modern, luxury, has sunny roof top terrace, great staff and beautiful rooms, look no further!

Riad Awa is a gem. The rooms are all very personally decorated and also very quiet. We had heard that Riads have problems with the water systems but we had no such problems. The rooftop pool and area is perfect for hanging out after a busy day in the Medina. The staff is brilliant! Kind and willing to help with everything.
I definatly recommend this place and will hopefully be coming back soon.

We stayed here in February 2013 and had a truly fantastic time. Perfect location. Friendly staff - couldn't be more helpful (thanks Mohamed - top man!!). Great rooftop breakfast. All in all a fantastic little oasis in the middle of everything. Couldn't rate it more highly. Thanks.

Just back from another fantastic stay at Riad Awa. The staff, including Mohammed were helpful as ever, especially providing copious amounts of mint tea. Were had a lovely meal at the riad on our first night, which was delicious. When staying here once previously I didn't meet Henri but did this time.

Once again I would recommend this riad to anyone. The location feels safer than I would expect staying in the souls too and it is a very easy walk to the main square. Great location for visiting the palaces and saadian tombs too.

I can't wait for my next trip
