My husband and I stayed at Riad Tizwa for 3 nights last month with our son. The Riad is peaceful and calm amid the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and is conveniently situated in the medina. Hassan and his team were extremely welcoming and helped arranged transport and trips for us - nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay at Riad Tizwa again and would happily recommend it.

Stayed there at the end of march for 6 nights..We chose the taxi pick up service offered as we were landing late in the evening.Good thing we did as it was tucked away in the Medina. Mohammed and Hassan are fantastic very helpful with our day trips away and always with a smile.
The breakfasts were spectacular on the rooftop with fresh yogurt and orange juice and local delicacies.
We stayed in the downstairs rooms - very spacious.The only improvement I could suggest is to check the plumbing in the baths.Too many times we were surprised in the shower by bursts of cold and hot water with absolutely no water pressure.It is an eco hotel so no face tissues either! On the plus side the beds and linen are divine!!
Will recommend it as a very nice place to stay in the medina

Staying in Riad Tizwa is like being a guest in an old Moroccan family home. Situated in the heart of the medina, (but not very easy to find), everything is beautifully designed with comfort in mind. In typical fashion, the building is centred round a beautiful courtyard. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and really seem pleased to help.
Breakfast, served on the rooftop, is excellent and the early morning tea and coffee left outside your room was welcome.
Our room was large and very comfortable but I only wish there had been a proper shower in our bathroom.
Make sure they send a car to the airport to pick you up as the taxi driver we took couldn't find it and we ended up being taken on a 15 minute walk through the souk, following a stranger and pulling our suitcases.
Free wifi, but not in every room.

I had already read wonderful reviews of Riad Tizwa as it was featured as a mid-budget, luxury stay, in a bespoke city guide- aimed at designers, artists and fashion professionals (WGSN.com). I visited in early March 2014 with my boyfriend- our first time in Marrakech.

This is a beautiful, blissful Riad in an-easy-to-find (by Marrakech standards!) location- to the North West of the Medina, within the old city walls.

Take our advice and book the airport transfer directly with Riad Tizwa- you wont get ripped off by local taxi drivers and the door-to-door pick up service was exceptional.

When you arrive at the Riad, you're welcomed home- to an oasis of calm, authentic features, the beautiful courtyard (of which most of the rooms overlook) and a sun-trap roof terrace.

Our room was decadent and colourful- a four poster bed and a scattering of Moroccan craft features. The bathroom was huge, complete with luxurious robes, traditional Moroccan slippers and bath oils.

At the Riad, you're best placed to enjoy so much in Marrakech... It's a 10 minute stroll to the main square, 15 minutes from Jardin Majorelle and a short skip away from the souks, tanneries, museums and restaurants. Although Marrakech is notoriously difficult to navigate by map- you can always anchor yourself to a long wall on your left that runs you right down to the main square- marked by a familiar corner-post for officials and police.

Of course, you're here to see Marrakech- but the Riad and the staff really make this stay special. Above all, the staff - Hassan and Mohammed - are attentive, polite, relaxed, discreet, friendly and helpful. We were greeted by Hassan most mornings- and when returning to the Riad after a day of exploring. We asked a lot of questions, about haggling, where to head for dinner, where we could pick up a few beers... Hassan was always helpful and gave excellent recommendations.

Awake to tea and coffee, milk and sugar outside your bedroom door. Have your breakfast at whatever time you like- wherever you like. We took ours on the roof terrace every morning, just give a ten minute warning and a gorgeous selection of pastries, yoghurt, freshly-squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit salad, muesli, bread, butter and jam will be whisked to your table.

Your room will be turned down swiftly by the lovely staff- we loved the eco-aware attention to detail.

Riad Tizwa offers a relaxing, luxury stay with ideal location and absolutely unbeatable staff. We will e visiting again and have already recommended to family and friends. Thank you Riad Tizwa for a magical stay!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are very private, and overlook the courtyard.

Riad Tizwa was a stylish oasis of calm after busy, noisy days and nights in Marrakech. The interior is lovely – neutrally decorated with vibrant, colourful tiles on the roof terrace. The roof terrace was lovely – a great place to have breakfast and enjoy the sun.

The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Mint tea on arrival was a nice touch, as was the tea and coffee left outside your bedroom door every morning. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious.

The room was spacious and comfortable, especially the bathroom which was huge and well appointed. Nice modern Moroccan design details throughout.

A very welcoming, friendly Riad in a great location.

Riad Tizwa was recommended by my friend's friend who stayed here before. Immediately, I came to Tripadvisor to look up reviews on the riad. We have never seen such high ratings on Tripadvisor before!! Richard and Daniel were pleasant and helpful when we were booking and very accommodating. Since we were arriving late (after 11pm), we reserved a car (for an additional fee) through the riad to pick us up at the airport. This is the way to go since it was our first time in Marrakech and we would never have known where the riad was. Plus, we were 2 girls traveling and felt safe that the riad arranged this service for us. Hassan was a warm welcome late at night and prepared some tea and snacks for us. The riad was very quiet since all guests were asleep. We stayed in room 5 which was a bit small but we didn't mind it. There is a large bathroom and shower room. The riad is beautiful, very well maintained, and quiet even though very close to the Medina and souks. Mohammed and Hassan were there to answer all our questions and we had a lot!! Very honest and helpful.Tea and coffee outside our room every morning and a beautiful breakfast on the rood deck (tea, coffee, homemade yogurt, granola, pastries etc). My friend is allergic to gluten and they made sure to make her eggs during the rest of our trip. A trip to Marrakech deserves a stay at a riad and not a large hotel and Riad Tizwa would be my recommendation. The location is great - 5 min walk to different part of souk and 10-15 min walk to the Medina.

Room Tip: Room 5 is on the ground floor with double bed and en suite shower and bathroom. There is a room with...

We were recommended this Riad by my son who came last year. My other son and his family with me visited in February half term. It was a wonderful welcoming place to spend a holiday. Very close to the Souks and they could not do enough for their guests. Breakfast was taken on a very sunny roof, and dinner on the first night was beautifully cooked.
