Riad Ambre et Epices
Ranked #49 of 1,167 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2012

This Riad is a gem - home away from home. From the minute we walked in to the moment we left we loved it here. The manager Patrice is really helpful and friendly and the rest of the staff is very welcoming. I even hurt my foot while I was swimming and Patrice immediately provided a bandaid. Patrice was able to arrange a massage for me on very short notice as well. Once given a map the Riad is easy to navigate and is about a 15 minute walk from Djemma el Fna and the souks. The rooms are elegantly decorated and the property is peaceful and relaxing. The pool is a great way to fight off the heat and the terrace was really nice as well. All in all we had a great stay here!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the riad over the August bank holiday weekend. A friend also joined us for one night on the Saturday.
The whole place is a magical little oasis right in the heart of the medina. The square and the souks are an easy stroll away and everything you could possibly need is provided by Patrice the very friendly and kind owner. All the staff are excellent and extremely friendly.
Don't hesistate in stopping here! The pool and setting is just beautiful and was a great relief from the extreme temperatures of August.
Patrice was happy for us to enjoy the riad on our whole last day even though our train didnt leave until 9pm. The room was great, clean and very beautiful. The suite where our friend stayed was magnificent!!! Breakfast served on the terrace was amazing!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the cheapest one and it was just great. All rooms are quiet.

The riad is an oasis of peace and elegance in the heart of the medina of Marrakech. The rooms (very clean) are tastefully decorated in the traditional Moroccan style. Patrice, the owner, greeted us, making us feel right at home. On the evening of our arrival, Patrice arranged for us a delicious dinner on the terrace of the riad. Fatima is a fantastic cook who prepares traditional Moroccan dishes that are delicious. It 's great dinner on the terrace! What about breakfast? The breakfast is rich and varied every day.
The solarium / terrace has sun beds and the pool is the ideal place for a refreshing bath and drinking a drink.
Patrice has organized a wonderful hike to the waterfalls ouzoud as well as transfers to and from the airport. Patrice personally takes care of every detail, and the staff is always available.
So if you want to spend an unforgettable holiday, we recommend the Riad Ambre et Epices!

Stayed here for 4 nights and was looked after by the lovely Patrice. The riad was well presented modern oasis to stay after venturing out. The property itself is well located within the walled city (Medina) and everything is in walking distance. Patrice and his team look after all your needs and he even catches you when your falling!! ;) The WIFI is great to use throughout your stay, the breakfast on the roof terrace is a great start to the day and a nice place to relax at the end. We were collected and returned to the airport which takes so much stress out of the travel and again, Patrice arranged this plus a dinner reservation at Restaurant Au Comptoir du Pacha.The food is highly recommended here. You walk past this on the way back to the riad. This will test your navigational skills. If there is one thing I would suggest, but probably because it was 43 degrees, is a small fridge to put your water in, in the room. I never drank so much water in my life!! but im sure if I asked Patrice to use his it would be no problem!! Thanks for the great stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in the suite racines. Great room, but if you have stiff knees, this bathroom is not for you...

Riad Ambre Et Epices, a traditional oasis of a riad in the Medina, walking distance from the souks. We had a magical dinner arranged for us on the terrace and the rooms really do speak for themselves, stunning. The service we had from Patrice and his staff was the best we experienced in our whole 2 week stay in Morocco and when we return to Marrakech we will be sure to come back to Riad Ambre Et Epices.

Room Tip: Arrange dinner for an evening, incredible food.

This is a fantastic Riad in a great location with excellent facilities and pleasant, professional staff. It is located in the old walled city but within walking distance of the Nouvelle district. We stayed for three nights in one of the larger rooms before heading to the coast for a night. The hotel manager was very generous in allowing us to leave our luggage in the hotel (without paying for a room) so that we could take only an overnight bag. When we returned we asked to try one of the smaller rooms (45 euros instead of 60), and this was of an equally high standard. The Riad offers a delicious traditional breakfast on the roof terrace. The optional evening meals were of a higher standard than many of the restaurants in the city - which all tend to be overpriced for tourists and of questionable quality. The hotel also offers an airport transfer for those that stay for three nights or more. Overall, our stay in the Riad was the highlight of our trip, and a desperately needed corner of tranquility and serenity amongst the hustle, bustle and hassle of Marrakech.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this secret hideaway - the people were absolutely fantastic, helpful in every way. The rooms are georgous. In the medina, close to the souk, great place to have a wonderful big breakfast and dinner on the roof top terrace or in the nearby Restaurant Au Comptoir du Pacha. The swimming pool is small but beautiful and refreshing, and massages can be booked at the reception.

Room Tip: All six rooms are phantastic!
