We've stayed 2 nights in Riad Monika, at the end of a 12 day-trip in Morocco.

The Riad is a dream. We've chosen the Riad because it seemed to be good to relax. And we were right. It's an excellent choice if you sometimes like to relax after a day in this busy city. It's an oasis, there you find your peace and quiet.

The Riad looks like a oriental dream, there are places to relax and lounge everywhere. If you have a room on the ground floor, you have the pool directly in front of your door. It's so amazing that we hardly wanted to leave the Riad to visit the city (again). The terrasse is also great. With lots of plants and lounges.

The big breakfast is served on the terrasse every morning between 8 and 11.

Service is great. The staff is very very nice.

Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. There's also a luxury bathroom with a rain-Shower. They offer not only shower gel and shampoo as most hotels do, there's also Rhassoul in the bathroom.

Location: The Riad is located near the Mosque Ben Youssef / Medersa Ben Youssef. From there it's easy to find. When you arrive, the Riad offers you a airport transfer for 15 Euros. Book it, because a Taxi isn't really cheaper... And as the taxi can't drive you directly to the Riad, there will be boys as "guides", which show you the way to the Riad but then want (too much) money for this service. With the transfer, it's more stressless (I can tell you, because we didn't book it....) It's worth it!

To the Place Jamaa el Fna it's about a 10 / 15 minutes-walk through the souks or next to it.

We were met by taxi at the airport and traveled into central Marrakech through the chaos, even scraping a police car as we drove up a narrow street. As soon as we stepped inside Riad Monika, all of the hubbub and heat disappeared as Zouhair, the manager, fetched us a mint tea and let us relax.
Our suite, Hayat, was decorated with rose petals on the bed as well as in the huge bath as we were on Honeymoon and friends who had wanted to leave Champagne in the room for us had not met the kind of problems you can encounter in Muslim countries. The manager also arranged a massage for us both in the suite.
The rest of the Riad was a delight, areas for reading and relaxing with the sound of running water never far away as the pool is central. The roof terrace was perfect for both the copious breakfasts and more hideaways to relax. Although there were other guests at the Riad, we couldn't really see or hear them as the breakfasting tables are set out such that you aren't really in line of sight.
We stayed in one evening and ate at the Riad and that was spectacular. 13 different dishes as a starter followed by main courses about which my wife and I had been consulted earlier on. We had a candlelit, rose petal covered table next to the candle lantern lit pool, all of which had been prepared just for us as the Riad is only a restaurant when the guests request it.
The location was perfect too in the we were far enough away from the médina but close enough to the souks not to have to walk too far. The call to prayer did wake us up very early most days but that is city wide so location would not really help. We managed to go straight back to sleep until a reasonable hour. I would thoroughly recommend this Riad to anyone staying in Marrakech: a genuine experience with luxury.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Najama suite at the end of May
We had a pick up from the airport for 15 euros by Mr Jamal in an air conditioned taxi/van. We used him for the next two days for various tours. The mountains are a must.
Room at the Riad very comfortable, the manager is extremely helpful and the breakfast is plentiful.
Could not fault it, hardly saw another soul and it was like living in your own palace!! Chilling out on the roof after a long day in the medina,watchin the world go by in the streets below.
The cat habibi is the most playful kitten ever and we enjoyed her company in the evenings when we got back. Fondue restaurant, they serve alcohol and the food is good!!

Room Tip: There are only 6 rooms, all different and quirky.

Few days ago landed here. Riad organised a pick up for 15 euro. Nice big Vaneo took us from the airport to riad monika. If you are first time traveller, recommended to take the taxi or somebody to take you to the place. Because difficult to find. Mr Zohair welcomed as near the house. Very friendly family running the house. Inside there are only 6rooms. So you will feel like at home, with few people. It was fully ocupied. Even though we did not meet many of them. Just one couple during the breakfast, which was served on the roof terrace. Very many chill sofas and areas inside where you could hide and read a book in the shadow. Wifi is also through all the floors so you can take your ipad without any problems. Breakfast is continental. Nice lounge seating and many sofas on the roof. Rooms clean. Bathroom had shampoo, showergel, bath flowers, toothpaste and everything else you could need. guests are mainly mature couples from france and uk. Bird sounds during the night. Wife of the manager has just prepared mint tea pot, so i am going back to the lounge to read my book

Having had a friend to show us around and snoop around his favourite 10 riads in the Medina, we picked this riad as it felt - and was - the one with the most serene and peaceful feeling combined with amazing decor and charming owners who make sure your stay is perfect.
All the personnel is great and we moved rooms as it was full when we booked but were glad to see 2 different but stunning bedrooms. Breakfast on the terrace was fantastic, and absolutely delicious. The riad is perfect for visiting the rest of the medina and the souk, and with the owners help we bought 2 morroccan carpets. The pool at the centre of the patio is lovely and we shall certainly come back if we come to the medina again!
