Reviewed 7 October 2013

Very pleasant place to stay. Felt very homey. Excellent service from Simon. Not very luxurious, but comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms. Very clean and quiet, and in the middle of everything. Very efficient aircondition. My son enloyed the very cold water in the plungepool after a hard day of shopping. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a separate bathroom/shower

My 5th visit to Marrakech and this is by far the best place I've stayed. Location is brilliant, close to the square (2 minutes walk away) in the heart of the Medina but equally very easy to find and safe. Everything in Riad Bamboo was spotless and bedding and towels were changed daily without request. Everything in the room worked and was quality with some lovely touches that made it all feel very special. Staff couldn't be more helpful and offered help and advice throughout without being overpowering and 'in-your-face'. Breakfast was excellent and served when we wanted it. I look forward to returning there very soon and have no hesitation in recommending it to good friends and family.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Rubis Suite that had everything that you could want - Air Conditioning, beautiful en-s...

Amongst the hustle and bustle of the Medina this is a gem of tranquility and worth spending more than one night, we spent three. Very friendly and helpful staff. Ask if you need a guide or advice on purchasing things in the Medina.

We made the tour of the imperial cities and, with a break in between due to a tour to the desert, we spent three nights in Riad Bamboo, sleeping in two different rooms. Both were great, welcoming was warm, friendly and helpful. We stayed at various riad in Morocco but Riad Bamboo really represents the proper riad experience, with familiar and easy going atmosphere. Breakfast was very high quality, dinner could be improved. We would go back and recommend the riad to anyone. Thank you Sonia, Simon and all the staff!

We stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't fault the Riad or its staff. Sonia welcomed us and provided us with maps, recommendations and advice for our few days in Marrakech, the staff were brilliant and couldn't have done more to help us from organising pool days at out of town hotels, to early breakfasts on the day of our departure. We stayed in the smallest room on the ground floor and its was perfect, only occasionally was there noise from other guests sitting outside our window but I suppose that this is one of the downsides to being in a Riad. Given how close it is to the main square in Marrakech, there was no noise from outside at all!
The roof terrace was great for sunbathing and the plunge pool very much needed at times!
Breakfasts were great and the meal that we had in the Riad was the best food that we had in Marrakesh! Would absolutely stay here again.

Just got back from our stay at Riad Bamboo (6th/13th Jul 2013) and we must say it has been simply amazing!The propriety is 2min waliking distance from Djeema El Fna but as you walk in it seems to be miles and miles away from everything!The Riad itself is very tastefully furnished,especially the quiet patio with its tiny swimming pool which is just what you need to find after an entire day of souks wandering!Our room was spacious and so charming,in perfect Berber style (fyi AC is in each room and works perfectly)
Breakfast is served in the patio or on the rooftop terrace at you choice. Every morning some good homemade food and a fresh orange juice...Yummi!!!
Sonia,Simon and Ibrahim are simply brilliant. They gave us some good advices which just made our stay perfect. We want to truly thank you all for the outmost assistance and help you gave us...we appreciated it so much!Last but least one comment on the city...you will just fall in love with her!!!

Stayed 2 nights in this Riad. Despite being in the heart of town near the market, it was a very relaxed place and we were warmly welcomed by the excellent staff. Facilities were excellent. Sonia and the rest of the staff gave us some useful tips on activities and restaurants. The wi-fi can be a bit patchy though, especially on the roof terrace. Would recommend an airport transfer on arrival as well, it can be quite difficult to find if you don't know your way around the side streets!
