“Tranquility Amongst Chaos”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

From our arrival at the Mansour the service could not have been better. The included transfer was waiting, check-in was smooth and the advice giving with regards to finding our way around was superb. The Riad is hidden away down several alleyways but you soon get to know your way to and from the main street. It is conveniently located for the Jardin Majorelle but is quite a walk from the main square, my advice would be to follow the route to the main square that avoids the Souk. My only criticism is not of the Riad but of the noise from the street, we could often here talking until close to midnight, so if you are a light sleeper request a room towards the back. However, after walking all day this did not stop us from sleeping. Breakfast was basic but ample and fresh, it was served on the terrace at top of the Riad. Overall I would highly recommend here as a place to stay.

We have just arrived home today. We have had the most amazing time 26th February until 1st March, such a lovely chill out place and such lovely people to look after you, very clean and attention to detail. Don't be put off by the entrance to the Riad as this is typically Morrocan. We met some amazing people and had wonderful food. Thank you Riad El Mansour

Marrakech would not feel so great without el Mansour providing nice comfort and kind staff. We (my wife and I) booked directly with the Riad and got a discount. The pick up and drop off from airport was complimentary. We pre-booked the dinner which really covered the key of the Moroccan/Marrakesh food. Hammam and massage were also a great addition to the sensual exploration of Morroccan traditions. Riad also helped us book at day tour across the Atlas mountains at a very good price with a great guide. We also had a chance to meet the owner and chat about running Riad. we had the pleasure to enjoy the mint tea many times at the Riad. We are now hooked on mint tea.
Always attentive stuff, clean room with refreshed fruit and water made el Mansour our true home in Marrakesh. We can sincerely recommend this Riad.

Riad El Mansour is a near perfect balance of old and new. The Riad, its rooms and common space are beautiful designed and colorful in traditional Moroccan styles (kudos to the many great pictures posted in other reviews). Everything is exceptionally clean and details are thoughtfully considered, from high-quality products in the bathrooms (great showers and plenty of hot-water) to frequently replenished water, nuts and dates in the rooms, and an introduction to Marrakech over a welcome pot of tea with cookies upon arrival. The wifi is present but coverage in some rooms can be spotty. There is a formality but incredibly friendly tone about the staff - a bit like staying with friend's family when they are not there - and there is apparently almost nothing that is too much to ask. Airport pickup and drop-off, arranging guided tours and restaurant reservations are done promptly and perfectly. Recommendations and suggestions are plentiful.

The daily breakfast choices are simple but very tasty and enough to get you going for the day. The options did not change during our stay & I could see it getting a bit repetitive after 4 days. (We did not eat dinner at the Riad but the cooking smells were very appetizing). The Riad is perfectly situated to make walking to the souk, Jamaa el Fna, and many of the attractions, as well as the modern side of Marrakech, Guelez, easy. At the same time you can enjoy the pace of a residential neighborhood in the Medina, doted with its many shops and bakeries. Oh my the bakeries! I made a point to buy flatbread from the street to have with breakfast over the french loafs the Riad offered in the morning but it was no problem. We always felt safe walking at night and exploring at any time of the day.

I would not hesitate to book Riad El Mansour again for a return trip to Marrakech.

Thanks to Wadi, Abdess, Robert and everyone else that make this an exceptional stay for our family!

We arrived Morocco where someone came to pick us up in a van and took us all the way up to the atlas mountain. We stayed at an amazing hotel with a view onto a beautiful mountain called Toubkal. There we hired a guide and went on a beautiful guided walk throughout the mountains. Two days later we were picked up by a tour group at Toubkal. From there we had a 11 hour drive to the Chegaga dunes in the desert. There we went on a camel ride and rode quads and even went sand surfing. Then we went to are camp where he had a nice dinner with mint tea. The next day they took us all the way to Marrakech. There we were greeted by a really friendly staff member called Wadi. He took us to the riad and answered all of our questions. The breakfast was amazing. I highly recommend doing the hammam. It is an amazing experience. Other all we had an amazing stay and it is a trip I will never forget.

We have just returned from a four day stay at the Riad. It is truly a very exotic experience and we could not fault anything. The staff are wonderful and at the end of the day returning to this beautiful Riad was peace to escape what can be a very full on experience.

Whilst we did not have an evening meal at the Riad, the breakfast, served in the sun on the terrace was a delight. I would recommend "The Hamman" and certainly it felt a lot more secure than using such facilities in the Medina. If you get a chance ask them to arrange a trip to the Atlas Mountains, the price is reasonable and our Driver "Abdul" gave us a truly personal experience, which I suspect you would not get if you booked through a tour operator.
I would certainly recommend for couples, however, not for females travelling alone, as walking from the Riad in any direction is through alleys where you can be subject to unwanted and persistent attention from Locals.

Room Tip: We had the Azure room, and it was lovely. No trouble sleeping as the Riad is very quiet at night and...

We stayed at Riad El Mansour in early February 2014. Even thought this was our first time in Marrakech and the Riad we were welcomed like family. The staff is wonderful. They will take care of all your needs. The room was nicely decorated, the food was delicious, and the staff was attentive. A manager is available 24 hours a day. We enjoyed a Hammam at the Riad, which I suggest you try as it is a neat way to enjoy a common cultural experience. The manager, Abdess, welcomed us with Moroccan Mint Tea and a tour of the Riad. He then went over a map where he had marked some highlights of Marrakech. He helped us with what we could expect and how to handle ourselves in the Medina. We had a tour of the Medina and a tour of the Atlas mountains with Moustaffa that I highly recommend. Go, enjoy and feel special in Marrakech and Riad El Mansour.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Amethyst room. This room is perfect for 2 people. It is on the bottom floor. Ver...
