This was our first trip to Marrakech and it was brilliant mainly due to our stay in the Riad Jonan Hotel. Everything about it was first class and the welcome and service we got was brilliant. We picked a deluxe room which was well worth the money.The food was excellent including the lite bites. We will definitely be back and have recommended it to all our friends

Just arrived back from a four night stay at Riad Jonan and would like to start with a big thankyou to the management and staff for making our visit to Marrakech such an enjoyable experience. Opted to take the airport transfer arranged by the riad and pleased that we did as the property would have been very difficult to find unless you are familiar with this part of the city. Would recommend this to future guests. Upon arrival we were greeted with a delicious and very welcome cup of mint tea and Morrocan pastries. We were then given a hand drawn map with directions to the main square along with other useful information to help us find our feet before being shown to our room. The Riad itself is ideally situated in the Kasbah area of the city just a 10 -15 minute walk from the square and the heart of the Medina were much the tourist interest lies. The walk from the Riad to the square is an adventure in itself. The atmosphere outside the Riad is buzzing, particularly in the evening, but step through the door and you are transported into a haven of peace and tranquility and a welcome respite from the continuous hustle and bustle that is Marrakech. The Riad is tastefully decorated in a traditional Morrocan style and the bedrooms are located around the central courtyard on two floors. There is also a lovely roof terrace which was great for an hours relaxation after a days sightseeing in the choas of the city. Breakfast was delicious and consisted of a selection of freshly squeezed orange juice, tea and coffee, omellete, scrambled eggs, yoghurt, cereal and pastries and was served in the central courtyard. The Management and staff were fantastic. Always on hand to offer help and advice if required, always pleasant and smiling but never obtrusive and nothing was too much trouble. We didn't actually have our evening meals at the Riad as the allure of the square with its snake charmers, monkeys, tattooists and performers was too great but would assume that the meals would have been to the same high standard as the rest of the accommodation. Riad Jonan is a great alternative to the often soulless tourist hotels. As we were leaving on an evening flight, were were even given full use of our room until we departed FOC. How many hotels chains would offer this level of sevice? Would highly recommend Riad Jonan to anyone visiting Marrakech and once again thanks to the management and staff for making our trip to Marrakech so special.

Driving into Rue Kasbah at 1900 was manic......typical Marrakech! Riad Jonan is a haven of what peace there is locally. Great first impression, with cool atmosphere and helpful staff. The rooms are small (normal) and our first had no external window and was very dark. This was similar to other rooms we saw and felt a little claustrophobic. The aircon was v.good and quiet. Friends upgraded to a larger room for extra £90/week, and this was much better. We took their first room which had a small external window and this provided a constant through draft. Food is good value, staff and management first class, talking French/English. They arranged the best tours of the week. Pleasant roof terrace. Walk of 500m to the square, a couple of nice restaurants and cafes within 200m. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Tombeaux Saddian is close and underwhelming.

First time to Marrakesh and found the whole experience fantastic. The staff and owners of the Riad couldn't have done more for us, they were friendly, helpful and catered to all our needs. The food is wonderful and the lite bites were enough to keep us going. We went to the Atlas mountains and this is something not to be missed. Not too sure about the Chez Ali Fantasia though. The riad is in the Kasbah is very busy but the atmosphere is buzzing. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the El-Fina square and this again is an experience. just remember to take lots of loose change as the people expect to be paid a nominal amount to be photographed. Cannot wait to return and definately will be going back to the Riad Jonan

Riad Jonan was lovely, the staff and owners were friendly and after a busy day in the souks the great rooftop with sun beds was most welcome. We found the position perfect as it was about 15-20 minutes walk to the main square, close but away from the main area. I stayed in the lovely Jadida room, which is ground floor next to a nice courtyard with a small plunge pool. The breakfasts were great, nice pastries and omelettes!! Perfect riad, thank you!
