Riad Noos Noos

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2013

I spent 4 nights in Riad Noos Noos with my family and had a very relaxing and lovely stay. The riad was beautiful, but the main thing was how helpful, welcoming and friendly all the staff were, particularly Jack, Myriam, Laurent, the house keeper (I can't recall his name sorry) and Fatema. They took the time to show us routes through the spicy market, and helped us buy excellent quality cooking tajines. The cooking lesson with Fatema was very useful and lots of fun, and the lunch was very tasty. The day tour to the Atlas Mountains we organised through the riad was wonderful. I loved our stay! We really appreciated how accommodating and helpful everyone at Riad Noos Noos were! Although the riad was so peaceful and lovely, it was all of you that made our stay so memorable.

We stayed at the Riad just a couple of weeks ago, in Mid may and it was an absolutely wonderful experience.

Location and transportation
The Riad is tucked away in a back alley of the spices market, the one by the Bahia Palace, a "real" souk for locals off the beaten track of the main touristy souks. If you are taken aback as soon as you get here please be sure that it is perfectly safe to walk these alleys, even at night!
The street of the Riad is pedestrian so taxis cannot stop in front: the owner picked us up in front of Bahia Palace and from there it's like 4 minutes walking, right through the souk. We booked the transportation with the Riad so the driver called whine we were about to get here and the owner was waiting for us. If you book your own transportation (I don't see why since the one of the Riad has a very competitive price) just ask to be dropped of at Bahia Palace and then call to be picked up. Jemaa-el-Fna is just 10 minutes walk up Rue Riad Zitoun el Jdid a lively alley full of shops and eateries; after one day we really understood how nice it is to be a little outside for the hustle and bustle of the main square!

The riad
It's absolutely lovely, right out of a fairy tale. Once you walk into the main door you enter a world of pure taste a mix of Arabian style, African handcrafts, and colonial pieces. The common area at the ground floor is relaxed really tastefully decorated. It was too cold to use the little Jacuzzi but it seemed inviting. On this floor they serve breakfast on rainy/very cold days, and there a re a big library/homeroom and the Hammam. Perfect spot to enjoy a book or rest while sipping a cup of mint tea and listening to chilled music.

The rooms are located on the fist floor and they are just beautiful. We had the Janen el Afia suite (number 4) and it was a dream: incredibly clean perfectly comfortable and spacious and decorated with taste from the bed spread to the furniture. It smelled wonderful and it was relaxed and silent (muezzin going off at 5am for morning prayer but that's all over town so no escape from that...you get used to him after the first night!). The door and windows open on the balcony running above the central patio, so it's always fresh inside but with good lighting.

On the top floor there's a wonderful terrace with outside dining (and breakfast) and sun beds. The green is luscious and well kept. If you want to dine at the Riad you need to book in the morning: we always forgot and really regretted it!

Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 usually on the terrace and it's very tasty: fresh bread, home made jams, cake, freshly squeezed orange juice, plenty of coffee and tea and crepes and omelettes made on the spot!

Service
This really made the difference. We travelled quite a bit but the kindness and service level we encountered at Noos Noos is hard to match. The manager Jacques really made us feel at home. He picked up us upon arrival, welcomed us with cake and mint tea as soon as we got there and gave us a very useful introduction on the Riad, its services and on the townl. And after that he was a unique source on information: he suggested restaurants according to our needs (more casual dinner or special dinner), walked us to the taxi the first night we had to take on and actually talked to the driver for us, arranged a massage with zero advance booking and was generally always available for a chat! The rest of the staff was wonderful too weather you needed a bottle of water at night of just some general information. We just didn't want to leave anymore, since we felt so pampered and well treated!

We recommend this Riad to anybody who's looking for a real Marrakesh experience and we thank Jacques, his wife Miriam and all the staff for the wonderful experience: gold medal to Riad Noos Noos, hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: Room #4 was lovely! Try to have dinner at the Riad (booking mandatory in the morning): we didn't...

We arrived to Marrakech late at night, Laurent had all arranged for us. Jack even helped us park the car at the parking at decent rates and Laurent helped us get dinner at a nearby restaurant despite the late hours. The Riad is beautiful, room was clean and spacious and breakfast was amazing. Jack and Myriam helped us get on our way to Essaouira early in the morning. What else can I add? If I were visiting Marrakech I would stay at Riad Noos Noos, no doubt! Thank you Jack, Myriam and Laurent!!

It truly is an oasis of silence and peacefullness in an a very loud and crowded city. I loved the inner yard and the roof terrace, the lovely staff and the nice food. We recomend the dinner on the terrace by chef Fatima or just relaxing in the library. The hotel is very close to the city center and despite the bad advertisement made by locals i found the neighbourhood quiet and friendly. All in all very nice!

We had a very nice, comfortable and pleasant stay in Riad Noos Noos. We felt very welcome and had a great time at an beautifull decorated riad!

The rooms were all different and comfortable! The breakfast was good, with fresh orange juice every day and home made confitures!

The host and hostess of this riad were very helpfull in planning our excursions and had nice information. On what to do and what not to! They are willing to help you with everything.

The mosque, which is nearby, gives you every day an early wak-up call! But you cant escape this with 80 mosques in this city!

We would really recommend this riad to anyone who would like to visit this city in the comfort of a riad which feels like home!

Thanks to Jack, Myriam, Laurent and the rest of the people at NoosNoos for an excellent stay. Great roof terrace, beautiful rooms, and good breakfast. Really nice atmosphere and very friendly and helpful place - will come back. Yes, there is a mosque nearby, but that's part of the Marrakech experience.

Excellent stay here - you will be very well looked after by Jacques and his team who are considerate and helpful at all times. Breakfast was good and the one evening meal we had also excellent and very good value for money. We liked the fact that the Riad was south of the Djemaa, it locates it nicely for the main palaces and the Kosybar, a great restaurant nearby.

The only area for us where the Riad loses out is sleep quality, it is located next to a mosque so expect a 5am wakeup every day and the beds were way to hard for our liking. However, neither of those things would prevent us staying at Riad Noos Noos again such is the overall quality and good value offered.
