“We always came back”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

The Ryad: The Ryad is located in the northern medina. It took about 15 minutes by foot to the Jemaa el Fna. The Ryad has a shuttle servic to the Jemaa el Fna and the Airport. The prices are absolutely ok. We payed 40 DH to the Jemaa el Fna and 100 to the Airport (for 2 People)

We stayed three times during a week in morokko in the Ryad Laarouss. The reason why we always came back to this ryad is the really friendly and helpful personell and the comfortable rooms which are clean. The Food, which is cooked "fresh" in the clean looking kitchen is good, the spaghetties were exellent. Overall, you cant make a wrong decision with this Ryad.

We stayed in Marrakech 5 days all together, with only first 2 booked at Laarouss, but we immedeatelly decided to cancel the other booking and extend the stay there. The ryad is beautifull, with extremely charming styled furniture, very kind and helpful staff. You can book various trips from the reception with very good prices... All together highly recommended!!

We arrived at the ryad after having stayed at two other riads on previous nights. Ryad larrouss is poised distinctively along the main street, which made it "easy to locate". We were impressed by the comfy terrace that provides a pleasant view over the busy streets. But shocked us was our discovery of unclean linen over our quilts, with spots of substances that proved them potentially unwashed & unchanged. Though we got them changed immediately, this left us paranoid and we ended up not using the "new" covers at all. The inadequate capacity of the heating system, which left us with no hot water to shower at night also caused us much disappointment. This especially since we had "higher hopes", having paid more for this riad than the others before. Moreover, we were told to wait 5-10 minutes for it to come on but...nothing. I think we let the water run for at least 20 minutes, waiting for the hot water (which never came). A terrible waste.

As compared to other smaller/"more personal" riads, ryad larrouss comes across as more commercially managed. This also proved so as breakfast here is served in a ready-made buffet style, in contrast to one-on-one order & serving. Nonetheless, we acknowledge and good customer service and helpful attitudes that the staff exhibited throughout our stay.

Authentic Riad located in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech. Getting there was a different story as we were dropped off a couple of streets down at night by a cab driver and things are not marked properly, or marked at all. We chose this place as it had direct access from a main road in the medina, so make sure your cab driver knows where to go.
The inside of the Riad is beautiful. They serve complimentary breakfast. It's basic, very basic, just toast, some croissants and coffee. There is no fruit, eggs, or anything else. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. Limited menu, but everything is very fresh and delicious. There are lots of restaurants in the area we went to for other meals.
The rooms are great, truly authentic and comfortable with lots of character. There is no elevator, but there is a bell boy to help you with your luggage. There is free internet too. We used their driver a couple of times to go around town, outside of the medina. He was pleasant and very reliable.
The front desk staff could be nicer, found them to be a little rude. Not very customer focused.

It was very nice Riad and my room with balcony was just perfect. It was spacious, nice furnishings, nice bed and nice environment. Bathroom was large with no direct bathtub but something similar. The only thing I missed there was hot water, it was not exactly cold, but not warm either. Lukewarm so it was a bit of a shame.
Staff were really nice and helpful. I lost my passport at the airport and they quickly arranged a taxi for me so that I could go back and forth - happy with my passport. Driver helped me at the airport to find the right, I myself might wander there to begin with.
Dinner was good too, only breakfast could be a little better. It was just bread, maybe some pancakes which disappeared pretty quickly.

I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Ryad Laarousse and I must say that for what we paid it exceeded my expectations. Both Mohamed and Faisal at the front desk were really helpful and never said no to any request we had. The other members of staff were always cheerful when we came across them. The rooms were very clean and remade every day.I would recommend booking the transfers both from and to the airport as it is much cheaper than getting a taxi. The continental breakfast consisted of freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, as much toast, pastries and pancakes as you'd like! The Ryad is about a 10-15 min walk away from the main square but beware that there are no pavements so you are sharing the traffic with many mopeds, bikes, donkey carts and of course other pedestrians which I felt added to the experience but might not be for everyone.
The public areas were decorated with an abundance of local paintings and sculptures and the terrace offers a nice place to get away from it all and have a nice rest.
There was free Wi Fi available however we did have to move around in the room a bit to get a good connection. There was also a pc available for everyone to use on the first floor.
There were a few excursions available and we even had a camel ride organised for us.
I do however at this point have to mention a minor criticism. The hot water in the shower wasn't always hot immediately. We had to sometimes wait 5 mins before the water got hot so start running the water a bit earlier if you want hot water.
Overall I would definitely recommend this place and will be staying here again should I be fortunate enough to visit this beautiful city again!

Room Tip: Our room didn't have any windows but this wasn't an issue for us as there was a sky light fl...

Let's face it, this part of Marrakesh is not for the faint hearted.
This Ryad is a haven in the midst of madness and within 10 minutes of the square.
Staff very friendly, rooms clean and breakfast is plentiful.
Why pay more?
