The Riad Hikaya is a wonderful oasis of calm within this wonderful but frenetic city. Beautifully decorated, with an extraordinary attention to detail, the hotel provides wonderful service and in luxury that is excellent value.
Run by Brit John, who is fluent in Arabic and French, this is a very well run establishment that anticipates your requirements before you realised that you had them! John's knowledge of the city is really useful in helping you to shape the sort of visit that suits you. He can arrange transport, visits, recommend restaurants (although eating here is pretty special too), and help you to make your visit really memorable.
Can't recommend this place highly enough.

I can't add much more to previous reviews which are spot on. As a quick read summary:
- stunning accommodation - amazing interior design, all handmade - exquisite, comfortable and clean
- perfect hosts. John is incredibly helpful, interesting and makes the visit stressless with his local knowledge. Staff are attentive but not intrusive.
- Food - enormous and delicious breakfasts. Order in the morning if you want an evening meal. Eat on the roof terrace and you will not be disappointed.
- plenty of nooks and crannies to relax in - take some books to enjoy as Marrakech can be a bit overwhelming if you don't like crowds or want to buy something!
- try a massage and/or hamam in the spa on the roof terrace - a real treat
- we took the Sharaf room - lovely little private terrace area and gorgeous design
- John makes good recommendations for restaurants although we wouldn't go back to the Grand Cafe de la Poste - nothing wrong with the food but we felt we could have been anywhere in the world and it was full of foreigners. Perhaps it was trying to be a bit slick and quite expensive by local standards. If you want a very special and authentic blow out go to Tobsil - but make a reservation.
- in summary - Hikaya is a feast for the senses - do not hesitate to book this accommodation

Room Tip: Am sure they are all amazing. We took the Sharaf which is the largest I think. Would recommend it (bath is incredible!)

We stayed at Riad Hikaya for three nights two weeks ago, what a relaxing place after the hustle & bustle of Marrakesh! We loved the larger Amal room while my daughter & friend stayed in Karma, a smaller room but still nicely appointed. When we first arrived, it was wild and crazy along the Medina, but John offered us mint tea and took time to welcome us in his gathering room wanting to know what we wanted to see and offered to help facilitate our last member who was having transportation issues which impressed us greatly. He was extremely agreeable and always helpful with this knowledge about Marrakech-, concerns & recommendations-he called for taxis and helped with every needed translation. John even wined and dined us one night even though it was later at night (the Riad food is delicious by the way). It just shows his dedication to his hospitable service along with his very friendly staff!
My daughter’s friend is living in Marrakech currently doing time in the Peace Corps and she even told us that John’s Riad was the BEST she has stayed at and would definitely go back. He acted like her adopted father while she was there as he made sure to arrange transport for her back to her Peace Corps site. He truly is the best host we could have asked for! We enjoyed ourselves immensely at his Riad and would highly going staying there without any concern. We would have fruit in our rooms and slippers at our disposal. I would recommend going to eat at the “Al Fassia Restaurant”’-this was another recommendation from John. EXCELLENT FOOD!! We are missing the beautiful Riad and food now!!

My beautiful wife and I stayed at the Riad Hikaya for three nights in April 2014.
We were meet at the airport by one Johns transport team and were at the riad within 15 minutes. Once we arrived at the riad John and his great staff welcomed us with traditional mint tea,sweet pastries and talked us through all we needed to know.
The pictures don't lie the riad is an amazing retreat hidden in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
Thank you to John and your great staff you made our trip

After the assault on the senses as you reach the street where lies Riad Hikaya there is a moment of dread about your choice of hotel until you take your step into this haven of tranquility where the hosts 'extraordinaires', John and Jane, welcome you into their home. The accommodation is beautifully furnished with such attention to detail that you know you are in a special place. Our overriding memory is how the hustle and bustle of Marrakech is made easy for you by placing your arrangements in the very safe hands of John and Jane who brace you for what lies ahead as you make your way to La Place - beware the henna ladies - and Souk. Nothing was too much trouble with taxis, restaurant reservations, horse drawn carriages and even souk purchases made on our behalf by John and team. The attentiveness of both Loubna and Mesda was terrific and they both contribute to making a wonderful stay with their gentle smiles and warmth towards guests in their care. It is very convenient to be able to have a taxi pull up immediately outside the door of the Riad which is quite unusual. I would absolutely recommend this Riad to anyone wishing to enjoy the flavour of Marrakech for a few nights. You can sit on the roof terrace and have an aperitif before dinner by gas heater if the night is a little chilly or after a morning sightseeing you can relax in the jacuzzi. Can't praise it highly enough and would return without hesitation. Thank you John and Jane for making our trip even more special:)

Room Tip: The room called 'Love' is particularly nice.
