“Gorgeous Riad”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This was the perfect place to stay on my first visit to Marrakech. The Riad has a cool courtyard with a plunge pool and Palm trees, and each room is beautifully decorated with its own character.

Thierry, the owner, and his team were great. We were a party of 8 and Thierry was always on hand to offer help, advice and maps to help us navigate our way to the souks and back. He organised taxis transfers to and from the airport and the Jardin Marjorelle. As well as arranging for 8 of us to have a spa hammam at Bain Bleu which I would thoroughly recommend.

Breakfast was always plentiful and after a long day of bartering at the souk it was great to come back to the tranquility of the Riad and enjoy and glass or 2 of wine on the roof terrace.

Marrakech and the riad was the perfect location for our girls weekend away but I would definitely return for a family holiday here with my boys.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper then chose a room on the first floor and don't forget that there...

I booked this riad for me and my girlfriend after a camping trip to the desert as I wanted something a bit special for us to come back to and we were not disappointed, it was just what we needed! We were made to feel very welcome by Thierry and his son who were both lovely, kind people. They really have done an amazing job refurbishing the place and as mentioned in other reviews, it's all been done in such a beautifully tasteful way, it just feels so nice to be there.
Loved our room too, we stayed in the Mérinide suite which was light and very spacious with a sofa with a lovely bathroom finished off with rose petals. Also we had the sun streaming into the room in the morning which is a rare thing for a riad.
The roof top terrace was another thing that drew me to this riad, you can take a small staircase up to a tower in one corner which gives you an amazing panoramic view over the entire Medina with a backdrop of the Atlas mountains, pretty cool.
Totally recommend staying here, can't fault it, it's even in a great position, about 10 mins walk to the square which is good fun in itself, enjoy!

Me and 7 women stayed here for four nights. Desperate for a bit of rest and relaxation from our busy lives. Riad matham is really authentically beautiful. It has been sensitively restored back to its former beauty, with beautiful art work and lovely Morrocon wood panelling. Its in the perfect spot for feeling like you are right in the heart of Marrakesh. There is a beautiful roof top terrace where you can listen to the call to prayer, a truly magnificent experience and relax in total comfort and luxury. We had many a lovely bottle of wine up there whilst laughing about the funny little events that had happened to us in the day.
Thierrey is your perfect host, he organised our transfers, met us from the taxi, whipped up a delicious meal on our first night and was always in hand to attend to our needs. He even showed us the way to the souks as we failed our first initiative test by going right right instead of left left. He has lovely staff as well and straight away we felt relaxed and truly at home here. What would I change? Nothing it was lovely and we want to GI back.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Riad Matham. We were met from our taxi by Thierry who showed us to the Riad where our beautiful rooms and dinner was waiting. In the morning we woke to a lovely breakfast served downstairs on the first day and then on the roof terrace on other days. Theirry was incredibly helpful and patient with us - being eight ladies who are all quite noisy!! He provided maps, ideas, booked taxis, sorted a hamman and was just generally lovely. His staff were also very helpful and friendly. The Riad itself is tranquil and beautiful and all the rooms are equally special. The roof terrace has spectacular views and is ideal for a cool drink after a hard days bargaining on the souk.
Just wonderful - thanks to Thierry and team.

This Riad is a wonderful place in the (north of the) medina.
It has very nice and tasteful furniture and is not overloaded with things.
The roof terrace has an excellent view because the house is higher then the surrounding buildings.

Just keep in mind: If you choose a Riad don't expect a hotel.
Rooms are dark without opening the windows to the atrium (Which means everybody can see you) and there is no corridor to the rooms. Open the door and you are already in the inner courtyard

Room Tip: We had a room on the floor which gives you a nice view at the inner courtyard

Positives:
Beautiful decor, small Riad yet spacious large rooms, very clean, good price, the food is really good!, the lady that attents the guests is really nice and helpful

Negatives:
They don’t speak much English, the location is a bit hard to find and also is within the chaos of the market inside Medina. You can always take taxis to go to the square or other places, yet you will find yourself walking 5 minutes of narrow passages to reach to your taxi. The bed was a bit hard to sleep in.

A nice friendly Riad.

In hindsight, there is not much more that can be said about
Thierry's Riad.

Key points however...

10 minute walk from the square
And 20 from the majorelle gardens and the way to the new town.

6 unique and beautiful rooms all with individual character, perfect for relaxing.

Go on the terrace for sunset and get beautiful photos over the city.

Have breakfast every day rather than skipping and enjoy a lovely meal on the hotel at least one of your evenings.

Use Thierry's knowledge to help you out around the city.

Book a transfer through the riad as it saves hassle.

Use the riad to relax however possible after a crazy day in the city.


The place is stunning, tranquil and perfect for your stay in the city at a great
Price. Highly recommended!
