Reviewed 21 March 2012

Very nice Riad in the Medina of Marrakech, friendly staff and excellent breakfast on the rooftop. Even a small pool is available. The rooms are furnished in a trendy traditional way with great love to detail.

Room Tip: All romms are very nice, but best is suite on rooftop.

"We have chosen wisely"... this sentence we have said to each other a few times after we left Marrakech to our home country, the Netherlands. At first, our attention was drawn by the wonderful decorated rooms and of course, the good comments on tripadvisor. We finally decided to book the Royal Moucharabieh Suite and the Rouge Chambre. Both beautiful rooms to stay, so it seemed.
We asked Jean, the manager, to have a dinner prepared for us on the evening of our arrival and we were pleasantly surprised by Touria's effort in the kitchen, so we decided to have all our evening meals at the Riad and enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the sun before departure.
The rooms were clean and met all our expectations; the beds were comfy and the warm welcome, hospitality and information given by Jean and this team were wonderful. Staying in Riad 144 is staying in a little gem in Marrakech, with excellent location in the Medina. A true home away from home. The only problem you will face when you are seriously interested in making reservations at this Riad is that it is hard to decide in what room one would like to stay. Each room has its own beauty. The Carbon room and Rouge room are conveniently located on the ground floor; Beldi and Secret Suite on the 1st floor and the Royal Moucharabieh Suite is situated on the top. There is no elevator in the building. Royal Moucharabieh Suite is very spacious and gives you a nice view over Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains and is located at the same level where breakfast/luch is being served and only one staircase away from the roof terrace. There is no need to look further in the innumerable list of Riads; as said before .... "we have chosen wisely!" We hope you do too!

Riad 144 is a perfect place to stay, with amazing rooms, great view from the roof. Touria's food will want you to have more! And of course, Jean, is the best host ever!
Riad 144 feels like a home away from home, a quiet place in the very busy Medina of Marrakech.
I highly recommend the Riad 144, it is the best place in Marrakech.

I was looking for a perfect place for our romantic getaway and out of hundreds of Riads in Marrakech, I chose this one.
First of all I fell in love with the decoration, the owner (Jean) has really beautiful taste... he pays attention to even the smallest details.
Our favorite part of the day would be breakfast on the rooftop... you can see the beautiful view of the Medina while enjoying Touria's Pain perdu...hmmmm.. we just can't get enough of it!!!!
We had a wonderful time, and will definitely go back :)

The riad owners Jean and Ståle combine an eye for style and sophistication
with hospitality to create an oasis of comfort in Marrakech`s wonderful lively medina.
They are fantastic hosts and great guides for what the city has on offer.

The cooking is just superb and you can breakfast on the roof terrace with a spectacular view over the city to the Atlas mountains. We also took advantage of the hammam and the great massages that the riad offers.

Riad 144 and its team makes a special city that bit more unforgettable. We will definitely be back.

The new Riad 144 is just the best, coolest and most relaxed place in the Medina of Marrakech. It's like staying at your best friends home an enjoying a caring attention by the little management team around Jean. The Riad itself ist dreamlike. They must have spent nights and days to decide how to restore the several centuries old little palace. All new suites are highly desirable. It's regardless which they offer you due to availability: They are all cool, affectionately furnished and offer both space and style. What else to say? Perfect roof top with magnificent view onto the roofs of the median. At evenings Tuira, probably the best private cook in the Medina, serves typical Morrocan style food of highest qualtity. We've been there 7 days, really each day included a joyful breakfast and dinner. We've never had any problems with our stomachs - a real big plus in that town.

What shall I say finally? There are only reasons to go there. But prepare for a waiting list: We've heard that the are allready fully booked at some time next year.

Best wishes for the future!!! Enthusiastical regards from Munich/ Germany!

I stayed at Riad 144 over a weekend (3 nights). It was simply incredible in every way. My first impression of the riad was how tastefully it was decorated and designed - it even had a baby grand piano and massive chandelier! I stayed in the "secret suite", which was spacious and cozy.

The chef, Toriea, cooked amazing meals. Her tajines and couscous were fantastic, not to mention the great pancakes in the morning.

A great feature of the riad is the fact that it is one of the tallest structures in the medina. This makes for nice sunsets on the rooftop lounge. There is a hammam in the riad as well, which is an added bonus. My wife got massage and really enjoyed it.

The only challenge is that the riad is tucked away deep in the medina, but this wasn't a problem because I was picked at the airport, the porters carried my luggage, and I was guided to the riad. After a day or so, you know your way around.

The hosts were also very friendly and helpful. I stay at many 5 star hotels and this is some of the best (and most personal) service I have received. Definitely coming back!
