Reviewed 19 November 2013

Manuela, Luca and the rest of the staff at MonRiad were so wonderful and welcoming. Upon arrival, we were greeted immediately with mint tea and maps of the city. The riad is located within a 5 (or less) minute walk to Jeema al Fna, and short walking distances to most of the other sights in the Medina. The breakfasts were delicious with home made pastries and yogurt and the staff was accommodating to my partner's dietary restrictions (he has Celiac so he cannot eat anything with gluten). Having a drink on the roof terrace is a must!

Our room was a bit small, but I think that is normal for most riads in Marrakech, and the plunge pool was awkwardly placed in the middle of the common area so we would not have felt comfortable lounging there in our bathing suits. I also would recommend splurging on the airport transfer, as the riad is hard to locate if you are not familiar with the area.

Overall, a great stay in a lovely riad with great people!

Stayed in this Riad for 3 nights! It was very close to the main square in Marrakesh - approx. 3-5 mins walk! The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had such a great time with Luka and he gave great guidance on what to see and look out for in Marrakesh. Without him I am sure we would have been ripped off and probably not seen the interesting cultural aspects we wanted to see. Definitely would stay here again! Highly recommend this to first timers in Marrakesh!

Breakfast could have been better though. Thanks for all your help Luka!

Thank you, the best way to enjoy the sun here in Marrakech as you said, is on the terrace. There is a second Marrakech made by terrace, satellite, muezzin and stark. While you are sunbathing with your eyes closed, here comes up this second city, and here on our terrace the show is guaranteed!

Thank you again!

The riad itself it's quite hidden but once you spend some time in Marrakech you will realise that all of them are. Staff is extremely helpful, they recommended us great restaurants, told us what prices we should expect to pay which was a massive help, I knew what price I should bargain towards. Our room was small but clean and all we needed, loved the top terrace, great place to enjoy an evening drink. Breakfast was tasty. I would recommend this place for sure and would come back without hesitating.

Thank you so much to have dedicated some of your time to talk about us. I'd like to underline that is not only that we care about our custumer but we also know that Marrakech could be a hard city for a tourist, specifically tricky I would say. We provide all of this type of hints and suggestions in order to let our host aware of the "marrakech's atmosphere".

Thank you again and hope to see you again!

Loved this place. Lovely little hideaway right in the Medina and around 10 minutes walk to the main square. Staff very welcoming and make you feel at home. Breakfasts were great but didn't eat any other meals in the Riad. Rooms small but lovely.

Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it. Next time you should try some Moroccan food prepared by our chef, or our international menu just in case someone would like to take a break from the spicy moroccan cuisine.

Thank you again for choosing Monriad and spread your voice!!!

Found this Riad as it was in the TA top 20 best value. Stayed there for 4 nights in October with partner and 15 year old son. Very clean tidy centrally located riad. The owners and staff were always very charming and helpful with all questions and queries. We would highly recommend. Room traditonally decorated pleasant and clean, not large but more than adequate. Great views from the roof terrace. Breakfast fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, local sweet pancakes and cake.

We stayed at 7 other riads within Morroco and this was unfortunately at the bottom of the list. The location is good and the staff was very nice, even upgrading our tiny room to a less tiny room on our last night of three. But the rooms are tiny and without charm. There is about 1 foot on each side of the bed and very little space from the end of the bed to the bathroom, perhaps 5 feet. Had to step into the shower in order to close the bathroom door. The place was quite noisy. Any sound from the main area travels to the other rooms. Perhaps the guests were not well mannerred, but all talking in the main areas and on the stairs is heard all through the place. Breakfast was spartan, although the home made yoghurt was a nice touch. The advertised piscine is little more than a foot bath. If budget is an overwhelming concern, this is perhaps a good choice.

Thank you for your quotation, and thank you for being here at Monriad.

Unfortunately this building was not meant to be an Hotel when it was built, and none of the Riad here in Marrakech either was. The structure was a family house and if you go in other type of Riad you will find the same situation. This is part of Marrakech and the culture.

Thank you again
