Riad Jakoura
Ranked #972 of 1,168 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 October 2012

Once we found the riad (down a side street next to a pharmacy), it was clean, friendly and convenient. Our host was very chilled out and helped us get our bearings and organise a trip to Essaouira. Our room was clean and functional and there is good wifi connection in the courtyard, although it was less reliable in our room. Breakfast is basic (bread, jam, coffee and tea) but we were able to ask for it to be taken early at short notice with no fuss. If you are looking for a good value, friendly and honest riad then this one is for you.

We had a bad experience to arrive in this Riad because out taxi driver left us too much far but when we arrived we had just great time.

Thanks to Staff for great time and conversation about life and experiences on terrace.

Good location (10 mins to Jaama El-Fna Square), clean room.

Spacious and comfortable rooms, beautiful decor, and the most pleasant staff. The guys working were all very helpful and friendly. Hamid even taught me how to make Moroccan tea! Clean, comfortable and close to everything, I could not have hoped for a better experience. I feel as if I have a home in Marrakesh waiting for me whenever I go back.

We arrived in Marrakech and after trouble with the taxi driver, Hamid (the owner) and his son smoothed over the situation and welcomed us in with a cup of mint tea. The staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. The riad was in a perfect location - walk-able to the main sights of the Medina. Also Hamid's tour to the gorges and Erg Chebbi is a must if you get a chance!

Clean and quiet, our cosy room was comfortable and was kept warm thanks to the air con unit which also served as a heater in winter. The shower was not the greatest though!
The highlight of the stay was the delicious breakfasts which were filling and set you up perfectly for a day in the medina. In relation to the nightly rate, this Riad was very good value for money.
The location was good, close enough to the bus station but an easy walk to the Djemaa el Fna.
We booked a day trip to the Ourika valley through Rachid at the riad. After looking around, it seemed to be about the going rate. In hindsight, however I would have preferred to have done my research and attempted it independently. Elements of the trip felt very much like being on a tourist conveyer belt.
