“Excellent Value, Service & Location”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

This review is way over due! This is especially so given the extensive help that I received (at no additional charge).

So, first, location. Very close to the main parking lot for the Medina and the Palais Bahia. It's approximately 140 meters walk from the edge of the parking lot to MonRiad, but getting there the first time can be a little tricky with necessary twists and turns in the Medina. From the parking lot you walk north about 75 meters on Rue Riad Zitoun el Jdid. At that point you run into an intersecting walkway that heads west. If you quickly pass a laundry on your left you're headed in the right direction! From the intersection with Rue Riad Zitoun el Jdid walk a short 35 meters and turn left into an open area with buildings on three sides. Proceed 30 meters with MonRiad being the last door on the right. The GPS position is approximately 31 degrees, 37 minutes, 21.48 seconds North and 7 degrees, 59 minutes, 6.49 seconds East.

The Riad itself is well equipped and new compared to my other accommodations in Morocco. MonRiad was opened in 2010 and I found the creature comforts, including heating, to be much appreciated during chilly winter evenings.

There's a nice area up on the rooftop where you can get sunshine and your bearings from, although photography of adjacent buildings and their residents is off limits.

Breakfast and other meals are served on the ground floor and I generally positioned myself near the whirlpool/water feature.

Now, for the outstanding service! Jonathan really shone! This was during the first major tumult in Egypt and my next flight was to Cairo on EgyptAir. Due to civil unrest flights into and out of Cairo had been cancelled for days. Jonathan made repeated calls on my behalf to try and find out if there would be a flight on the day I was supposed to fly. While I was still at the Riad, I was watching TV downstairs near the fireplace when I saw the live announcement on TV that Mubarak had resigned.

His resignation aided my travel plans and Jonathan was able to confirm my reservation onto Cairo.

Also, MonRiad was an absolute bargain price wise. My all inclusive nightly rate in February 2011 was only 40 Euros which was less than half of what many other Riads were charging. I think that the prices may have come up some since I was there, but still very reasonable from what I could see.

So, treat yourself by staying at MonRiad and pass along "thanks" to Jonathan for assisting a Wayward American with EgyptAir during the Arab Spring.

This is a place within 10 easy mins walk of the main square of Marrakech, situated in the buzz of the Medina but nevertheless in a quiet spot with wonderful staff. Hotel is clean & authentic with a nice sun terrace. I know they have a dinner menu but we didn't try it, so can't comment.

This is the place for an authentic experience - the rooms are clean and comfortable but but don't expect 4/5 star luxury.

Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Mon Riad both at the beginning and end of our Morocco trip. Its location is great - in the heart of the medina and close to the Djemaa el Fna and the palaces, but very near a parking area for getting taxis etc. It's quiet at night despite being in the centre of things and is very secure - you have to ring to get in the front door and there is always staff around. The rooms are very comfortable and we loved the open roof terrace. Jonathan is a great host and all the staff are very friendly. Would definitely recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Marrakech.

You get exactly what is advertised - a lovely decorated and quiet riad in a great location in Marrakech. The manager is fantastically helpful. We were overwhelmed by wandering the streets of the city and ordered the hotel traditional dinner, which was exquisite both in taste and atmosphere. Very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to anyone.
