Reviewed 14 March 2014

Staying in a riad in the medina in Marrakesch is the only way to go for the discerning traveler. This particular riad close to the main square with all the action is brilliant value. Manuela and other staff could not be more helpful in all ways. Rooms were clean, breakfast fine and dinner will be served in traditional Moroccan style with fresh produce that day if requested in reasonable time beforehand. They also arranged a brilliant driver for an overnight trip to the mouth of the Sahara. Relaxing on the roof top with a superb view of the City surroundings and skyline and the Atlas mountains was a further bonus.
A word of caution to all travelers staying in riads in the Medina. Mostly vehicular access to the front door is not possible. However prior pickup at airport or other location can be arranged by the riad at low cost. Guests will be met at a drop off location and escorted by foot (minimal distances) to the riad. DONT LET THIS DETER YOU FROM STAYING IN THIS LOCATION as the experience is superb

Room Tip: Lower floor better for more aged travelers

Dear Owen,

Marrakech Medina Monriad: It was a pleasure to know you and Joan! I and all the staff are very happy that you enjoyed our hospitality. Monriad is located in the heart of Medina near the Main square.
Breakfast and dinner are homemade!
If you arrive in Marrakech for the first time MonRiad can arrange the pickup at the airport.
It is the easiest way to go to the Medina.
Waiting for your next trip to Marrakech to enjoy our wonderful terrace!

A short return to Marrakech and delighted to find Mon Riad as superb as previous reviewers had said. In the heart of the Medina, but easy to find from the nearby guarded parking. Super rooms, relaxed atmosphere and great roof top terrace to escape to. My 4th trip to Marrakech and would whole heartedly recommend Mon Riad to any-one looking for the Riad / Medina experience.

Made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Staff very friendly and always willing to help. Rooms cleaned daily and nicely decorated. Luca speaks good English and more than willing to give advice on things to see and prices to pay, very useful when bartering. Being five minutes or so from Djemaa El-Fna it makes a welcome oasis of calm from the hectic Marroccan daily life. Special thanks to Manuela who was able to quickly arrange a tour to the mountains when the one we had planned failed to run.

Tip: accept the transfer from the airport, MonRiad is not easy to find initially, you will be met at the airport by someone with a name card and you will be taken right to the riad’s door.

We stayed in 2 Riads in Marrakech and were impressed with the friendly and super-helpful staff here. ( we unwittingly messed them about but they were great about it) Lovely evening meal. We had a good large room with an enormous shower! We found it to be good value, and superbly positioned for all the sights of the medina. It is not far from the central square.

Monriad might be hard to find in the beginning, but its an excellent riad in the heart of medina. Great location - 15 min walk to THE incredible market, 15 minutes to Bahia palace. Stuff is really friendly and they do what they can to help you. Building is beautifull and everything is done with good taste. My room was really good - I really have no even single reason for complaining. When returning some day to Marrakesh I will surely check if Monriad has space for me. Molto grazie!

Not only is this riad wonderfully welcoming and genuinely hospitable, it is impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The staff are exceptionally helpful and accommodating; absolutely no sleaze!
The breakfast is lovely, freshly prepared and tasty. There is good/free WiFi and the riad is ideally located down a quite alley, close to nearby sites. In many ways this riad is an anomaly to what you find/experience in much of Morocco. If going to Marrakech, this is the place to stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in early Feb for a short break in the sun. Great location, and really useful to have Luca on hand to give us tips on what to see and what to avoid. We also had mint tea and dinner on arrival, which was absolutely delicious and the perfect start to the holiday.
