“Haven of affordable luxury!”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

After staying one night before travelling to Essaouira, we were so taken with this beautiful Riad we were determined to return which we did for another three nights on our return journey to Marrakech. We have stayed in Marrakech many times but have not found a Riad as calm,relaxing and immaculate. After the hustle and bustle of the souks we could enjoy the peace and tranquility this modern Riad offered.With spacious room and contemporary decor it was a delight to return and unwind.
The staff were friendly, helpful and very consciousness in caring for us especially after I took ill after eating out. We can not thank them enough for their care and attention which made a difficult time so much more bearable. I would recommended Riad Samarine to everyone.You will not be dissapointed.
Thank you again Sam and staff.

I recently stayed at Riad Samarine and I had a wonderful time. It is a new and modern riad located right in the medina. This riad is a mix of Moroccan culture with a hint of modern luxury. The room was very nice and clean with plenty space. I will recommend this riad to anyone who plans to stay in Marrakech.

Room Tip: This riad has rooms for groups of three.

It is already the third time I am staying in Riad Samarine. Perfectly centrally located it offers a calm place to relax with a staff that could not be more helpful and service-oriented. The rooms are very spacious (what is seldom due to the traditional construction of riads) and furnished and decored in a calm and pure way - the perfect relaxation after the busy and colorful médina. For me a place to recommend to friends but also to come back at any time.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very calm and spacious. My favorite room is the one with two windows (whereof one...

We stayed at Riad Samarine for 2 nights.we were warmly greeted by Ismail. The hotel is in the souk itself. At first were quite shocked to see the hotel in the souk.. but to our surprised the hotel is nice, the room is big and clean. Mr Abdelatiff was very friendly and he is always around to help us. If we go to Marrakech again for sure we will say there again.

I stayed at Riad Samarine for four nights last week with a couple of friends and had a wonderful time. We were very warmly welcomed by Ismael who came to meet our taxi driver at the Koutoubia mosque and accompanied us across the main square and through the souk to the riad. Whilst the riad is right in the souk and only a few minutes walk from the square, it is at the end of a very quiet street and quite tranquil inside. Our room was very spacious and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were very generous and the staff were keen to provide whatever we asked for - eggs, yoghurt, fresh fruit, delicious Moroccan pancakes and some of the best fresh orange juice I have tasted! Thanks to everyone at the riad for making our time in Marrakech very enjoyable!

Great hotel, tottaly worth to stay there, because of location, design and stuff witch is one of the best i have ever seen. Great terrace on rooftop. I don't know if in nights the streets is npisy but in the rooms there was no souen of it at all. Other bonus is that Djemaa el-Fna is just 3 min walk from hotel. During the trip we stayed in other places to and the orange juice here was the best. :D
