my friend and I stayed here in April , we were collected from the airport and taken to the small riad , It was a wonderful oasis and very central to everything , The staff are exceptional , I have visited marrakesh many times but this was the best riad I had stayed in . I will be returning as soon as I can !!!!! Thanks again

Room Tip: choose a large room but if you are on a budget the small rooms are still adequate

We have just arrived back from our 5 day stay in Marrakech, staying in the Ourika Suite at the Riad Assouel in the middle of the Medina. The Riad was like an oasis away from the busy Medina. We were very pleased with the excellent service, accommodation, food and all the little extras Mohammed and his team offered us. Arranging the restaranuts, trips and taxis to and from the airport for us

Great value for money, the riad was a welcome retreat from the busy souks and for our 5 day trip felt like home. We were 3 ladies on a short break and we was very happy with the service, accommodation, food and all the little extras Mohammed offered us calling the restaranuts and taxis for us and someone's was always around if we needed anything they couldn't do enough for us. We was also very happy with the wifi so we could keep in touch with our family's back home. Ive been to much more expensive hotels with the promise of wifi which fails all the time. Over all 5 stars thanks riad assouel. I hope to come back and bring my husband one day.

Just back from our week in Marrakech, staying in Riad Assouel. Amazing Riad with fantastic staff - loved Marrakech.

Glad we accepted the free transfer from the airport, as we would have been unlikely to find the Riad on our own, especially at night.

Assouel is a great location to the Souks with some fantastic places to eat (Kui Zin) and drink (Cafe Arabe, sells alcohol) along the way. I love how you wonder along the motorbike, bicycle and donkey filled streets to find the little wooden door... stepping into the tranquility of the Riad.

Food at Assouel was fab, breakfasts were yummy (yoghurt, fruit, moroccan pancakes, bread, jams, mint/tea and coffee) and supper was always as good as the meals that we had in town. (Their red wine is delicious too!). Our bill at the end of the stay was much less than we expected and we didn't hold back with the mint tea, food and extras.

I had a traditional hammam and massage at the Raid - which was great and good value too.

One of the best aspects of our stay were the staff, attentive, friendly and extremely helpful. We didn't find them 'pushy' at all. They found us good deals for a half day tour of the city and a private taxi to the mountains - much better than we saw anywhere else.

Staff would book our evening meals outside the Riad and take us to the restaurant if we wanted them too (navigating Marrakech can be a little tricky, especially in the dark).

Fantastic holiday and raid. Will stay here again when I next visit Marrakech (which I will do... with more space in my bags for bringing things back!).

Note: Don't get your money out in the UK, their ATMs are really cheap - you get a much better exchange rate than in the UK, we averaged at £145 = 2,000 Dirham when from ATM. (lots of ATMs in the main square)

We spent a full week here and had a fantastic time,booked on the basis of reading previous reviews it lived up to expectations. A beautiful riad just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area to be a centre of calm and relaxation. The owners and staff were delightful and couldn't have been more helpful and charming. The riad and rooms were clean and well furnished my only slight gripe is that the showers could possibly do with a little refurbishment.
If you've never been to Marrakech before the maze of side streets and alleys could be a little intimidating, but rest assured people are very friendly and always willing to help. We even used Nordine one evening to book and take us to a restaurant we fancied visiting...piece of cake! We ate in the riad on several occasions and the food and wine were excellent.
We will certainly be visiting again. Thanks to all the staff -Mohamed, Nordine, Abdou, Zahira, Fadoua, Najia, Sana and of course the owners who made our stay the thoroughly enjoyable experience that makes a holiday memorable. Finally a big plus is being picked up and returned to the airport.

This is a lovely place. All the people are extremely nice, the rooms are lovely, the service is attentive and the atmosphere is just right. The criticisms of the Assouel's location in the medina are absolutely irrelevant to the experience. It may be a few minutes further away from the square than some other places, but it's five minutes from the Marrakech Museum, walking everywhere (including through the less tourist frequented bits of the medina) is one of the pleasures of the place, and there is no reason whatsoever to be concerned about safety (we walked back to the riad every evening we were there). Do not be put off by the few poor reviews; I always read the criticisms first, and the ones the Assouel has received do not reflect our experience in any respect.
