We were met at the edge of the medina by Piero, and guided to the Riad. The owners, Piero and Marco, and their staff, were all brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. The meal we had on our first night was superb, breakfasts were lovely, rooms lovely and clean. Everyone was helpful. Location is fine, just a 10-15 minute walk from El-Fna Square. Coming back to the Riad after a day in the souks was bliss- a quiet peaceful haven, so relaxing to chill out in the courtyard or on the roof terrace after the random madness that is Marrakech!

From being met at the edge of the medina by Marco to having a last beer in the courtyard at night, this has been the perfect hotel. If you are coming to marrakech, and you should, stay here. It is perfect serenity in the madest city you will ever visit.

The Medina is a maze, and you need better homing instincts than we did not to get lost. However, for all that, the Riad Jomana is a good little home away from home in fascinating Marrakech.

We had to change our room the second night to one without a bathroom, which was a little inconvenient, but not overly so. It was comfortable enough. The doors didn't lock very securely which made for a slight feeling of unease, but, all being behind the main door to the outside, we had no reason to doubt overall security.

The stairs require somewhat careful navigation and could be unsuitable for someone with, say, knee problems. However, although my right knee isn't the best, I managed fine.

It was quiet. We slept comfortably and well. Sure, there's the nearby call-to-prayer early morning, but that's the Middle East, not the Jomana. (BTW, someone else here wrote that it's "next to a mosque" - completely not true.)

Breakfast was quite adequate.

Best of all, the staff was friendly, calm, helpful and understanding. As a male couple, we couldn't have happier.

Finally, getting back to the access thing: I recommend getting the Riad to write you instructions for the taxi driver in Arabic and mailing them to you before your stay. We got a taxi from Casablanca (i.e., non-local driver) which spent ages trying to find it. And leave a trail of breadcrumbs whenever you go out!

Room Tip: Try and get a room that includes bathroom.

This was one of 3 Riads we stayed at in Marrakech. The room was small but clean AND it had a heater (big plus in December). The showerhead was handheld only, meaning there was no holder for it on the wall, this didn't bother me, but it did bother my boyfriend. The location is about a 12 min walk to the main square, but this Riad is very easy to find. The staff was very nice and the owners are a French couple who can speak English. This point is HUGE, because nobody in our other Riads spoke english, and since we didn't know French, it was extremely difficult to get by and get even simple questions answered.

I would definitely recommend this place if you require some english speakers. You'll hear the call for prayer here, and everywhere in the Medina, so after a few nights, you will adjust and sleep right through it.

My and wife I stayed in this riad with our little boy.

Location: The place is quiet and tucked away from the busy and noisy streets of Medina. However, there is a mosque nearby and it did wake us up every morning during a call to prayer. Having said, mosques are everywhere in Medina and I do not think you can easily find a place where you won't hear the call.

Room: We had a very large room on the ground floor with a large bed. The design was simple and looked like in Moroccan style (not that I know much about Moroccan style anyway). The bathroom was more on the basic side, but it worked and had hot water.

Service: The service in riad was good - we found the staff very friendly and responsive. We were satisfied with breakfast, which you can have either on the ground floor in the yard or up on the roof which has a nice terrace.

Travel tip: if you are taking a taxi from the airport ask the driver to drop you off at Dar el Bacha - from there it's less 5 min walk.
