“Feels like home”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I stayed in this wonderful Riad in October with a friend of mine.
We could not have asked for anything better ... an intimate, quiet, and confortable place.
The cleaning was perfect and the staff was extremly kind and helpfullness.
Jalil, the guy who works the front desk was a great guide and also a good friend. He suggested to us very good restaurant and places to visit.
David, the owner, has distinguished himself for his extreme kindness and honesty, which is rare in Marrakech! We decided at the last moment to change the room getting a suite for the same price of a standard double room. Certainly, if we will go to Marrakech again, we will definitely choose this Riad again!

Good adress for staying in Marrakech. Clean rooms, good beds, bathroom is neat& clean, wonderfull simple breakfast at the rooftop terrace in the sun, good price/quality ratio, 37€ with breakfast through Booking.com.
Friendly staff, internet available.

From the stop-off of the taxi it is hard to find the first time, but somebody is allways ready to change some coins for some directions!

The walk to the Jemaa-el-Fna is a nice one, seeing Marrakech street life unfold. The evening in the square was wonderfull and impressive.

Love the riad, would go there again & reccomend it to friends!

Peace-out!

Riad elsa is a wonderful riad in the southern part of the medina. Very easy to walk to the main square. It is very clean and has a lovely rooftop terrace and pool to chill out by, a lovely break from the noise of the medina! The staff are very helpful, they organised our bus tickets to Essaouria and left them in our room for us. The breakfast is also very nice. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice riad in the medina.

Riad Elsa is a lovely small riad on the inside of The Marrakech medina. I cannot describe the calmness experienced once you walk through the doors out of the heat.
While not all the rooms have air conditioning, they are clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable.
The indoor plunge pool is divine! Deep enough so you can take a dip or just lovely to sit around the edge and dangle your feet in while drinking delicious mint tea.
Staff are lovely and so helpful with maps, recommendations etc.
We had a lovely stay in fact we decided to return a week later!

Great little Riad with amazing service from the staff, Adbullah and Ismael. Amazing breakfast to set you up for the day on the lovely roof terrace which was perfect for catching some rays.
Only down point is it is about 20mins walk from the Square- great if you want some quiet but it is not very central although ideal to get to the Palace from.

The hotel was definetly above al expectations. Very clean, very comfortable and beautifully traditional. We arrived at night and walking through the alleys to get there felt a bit dodgy but it was just a matter of getting used to it, quite safe. Abdullah will help you with your questions and needs and was very kind. Breakfast is very good, you get everything freshly made since there is no buffet but they serve specially for you. The location is perfect as it is just around the corner from where all the to-see things are happening which makea it noise free and calm but only on walking distance to everywhere. All in all a very good experience and I would without hesitation recommend this hotel. Do use the taxi service the hotel offers. It's 150 dhm and they walk with you all the way to the front door, which is basically imposible to find on your own the first time due to the maze alleys you have to go through. Also 150 dhm is the normal going rate, i've talked to travelers who payed up to 200 but never less than 150.

Our stay at Riad Elsa was amazing! The riad was lovely and very traditional, and breakfast was delicious. Ismael was so helpful in organizing all the activities which were excellent! He was a great help as he was available 24/7 and whatever we needed he would provide that very day! Brigette, Mustafa, and Saadia were also so welcoming and helpful! We would definitely recommend staying with these guys as the service is on point! Will definitely stay here again!
