“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed 26 November 2009

Having initially been a little disappointed that the Egg room was unavailable at the time of our stay we decided to opt for the Chewing Gum room. The room itself was truely superb, as was the rest of the riad.
Staff were friendly and informative and the food was so good we opted to eat there for the whole duration of our stay. Food and drinks were reasonably priced. The staff were more than happy to arrange a variety of excursions and spa treatments. An ideal relaxing end to our holiday after spending the first few days right in the heart of the hectic souks.

One tip would be to take enough cash to cover the bill, credit card machines are not available (as with the majority of morocco) and a late night trip to an atm (further than you might be accustomed to in the UK) was the only slight problem we encountered.

Oh and if you want a bath in the chewing gum room you need to allow plenty of time for it to fill up.....its BIG!

I am more than happy to provide feedback regarding our stay at Riad 02. We all had a wonderful time in Marrakech this was made extra special by our stay in Riad 02! I have stayed in many top end hotels in many different countries and I can truly say Riad 02 has been one of my personal favourites. The whole ambiance of Riad 02 is one of relaxation, the rooms were beautiful and maintained to the highest of standards. The extras touches like the candles on an evening, or the rose petals in the water feature just added the finishing touches.

Your staff are brilliant, so friendly and helpful, nothing was to much trouble for them. We had dinner one night in the Riad and this was a true Moroccan feast -brilliant for our friends who had never tasted Moroccan food before.

I have seen some comments on trip Advisor about the Riad been difficult to find - this is true for the first couple of outings however staff are on hand to help you find your bearings. I never felt intimidated walking through the medina -this just adds to the experience, the locals are helpful and generally friendly. One just needs to remember to be respectful of others cultures and religions.

Marrakech on a whole was not as exciting as the first time i visited and the prices for food and drink are now on a par with Europe i.e. expensive, for this reason i am unlikely to return. If i did however I would certainly return to Riad 02 -and would recommend to anyone to stay here.

Thanks for a wonderful break.

I can honestly say it is the first time I have ever stayed somewhere that was even better than the pictures I saw before I went, both me and my wife and an amazing time, the riad is amazing, the food was fantastic, and all the team where also fantastic, everyone made us feel completley welcome and really did look after us both and made us feel very comfortable indeed, not only will we stay again when we come to Marrakesh we have also and will continue to recommend the RIAD 02 to everyone we know.

2nd trip to Marrakech, 1st time in a nice hotel in the new town, this place knocked spots off it! Locatation in the heart of the vibrant medina, after days out in the square etc, what a great place to return to. All the individually styled rooms are fantastically appointed and designed. It's just so chilled! The staff were marvelous and nothing was too much trouble. We had food on only one evening and it was excellent (As well as reasonably priced, 34 euros for 2 people)
Good tip...get a taxi (80 Dirhams return) to buy wine/beer etc from a supermarket and stick it in the kitchen fridge. The charge for a supermarket £3.00 bottle of wine (surpisingly very very good) is charged at £15 in the riad.
Don't pay attention to earlier posts about feeling threatened on the 2 minute walk from the taxi drop off to the riad, Morrocans are really friendly people. If you feel intimidated by anyone trying to fleece you just give them a forearm smash.

We originally booked for 2 nights but stayed for 5 as we liked it so much. In amongst the maze of the medina this tastefully decorated Riad is an oasis of calm. The room was lovely, and there was a brilliant roof top terrace, ground floor dining area and lovely plunge pool/jaccuzi. Staff were very helpful and there was free internet. The breakfast were brilliant and so was the dinner , if a bit pricey.

If you are looking for a great base to explore the wonders of the Marrakesh medina this has to be on your list

The whole experience staying in the Riad 02 was lovely – great to escape from the busy streets of Marrakech – really relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the mint tea and sunbathing on the terrace. The staff were brilliant - even walking with us some of the way to the main square so we didnt get lost and organising taxi to the airport at 5am on the last day. The breakfast (pancakes, bread, fruit, cake - all home made) and dinner (amazing beef tagine!) were also lovely. Sadly we didnt get a chance to try the plunge pool/jacquosi but it looked fab.
Three of us shared the 1001 nights suite which was such a beautiful room. We had originally booked two rooms for four friends but when one pulled out we were so grateful that the Riad 02 were able to accommodate us in the three-person room at short notice. I have already recommended Riad 02 to a friend who is visiting Marrakech later this month!
