“Great holiday!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Just spent 8 nights at 3Mages. Great service from everybody - lovely breakfasts and dinners on the nights we ate "in". It's amazing that the place can be so quiet and comfortable considering the situation. A few steps from the front door your are In The hustle and bustle of daily life in the Medina. Being a bit older than the average guest (we are in our 80's) we were happy to spend our mornings on the roof terrace and then go out for lunch and to explore. It has to be said that Moroccan food offers limited choices for a long stay and we tried to eat somewhere different most nights. La Bagatelle and the Rotisserie both in Rue Yugoslavie in the new town were really nice and reasonably priced. For our last night Mamounia - about £60 per head but good food, luxurious surroundings and friendly service - almost as good as Les Trois Mages!!!!

The location about 15 mins walk from the main square was just about right for us, giving an interesting walk in to souk area.
The decor of the rooms was stunning and atmospheric, giving a true flavour of Marrakech.
However where this place really scores is it's staff, from the manager Asis down to the cooks who prepare breakfast, nothing is too much trouble.
Mint tea is on tap throughout the day to wash the dust of the city away. Breakfast is tasty and a good fuel-up preparing you for forays in to the souk and beyond.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at the Raid this March.

Nothing was ever too much for the brilliant staff, who looked after us with such diligence. Aziz in particular was a star.

The beautiful building, in great upkeep, was clean, cosy, and most welcoming. The downstairs lounges are spacious and provide a calm environment from the hustle of the Medina, the roof terrace and pool likewise.

We stayed in the Jade room and it was perfect; 4 poster bed, great shower, a safe and plenty of space.

Breakfast on the terrace was tasty and very hearty, delicious local pastries with fresh yoghurt, fruit and the best orange juice.

Easily accessible to both the souks and the nearby Majorelle gardens, plus drivers can take you close by in a cab, very handy when tired!

We recommend doing a cookery class run by the Riad, so much fun to go to the market and source ingredients and then make your delicious lunch.

Thanks again to the team at les 3 Mages.

We only stayed at Riad Les Trois Mages for one night after a desert tour before heading home early the next morning, so we didn't have much time to fully enjoy this lovely riad. We had the two rooms on the ground floor, which were colorful and comfortable. The architecture of our room was a little tricky in that there were several different steps of varying heights between the bedroom, sitting area and bathroom, which was a bit challenging in the dark. Off the main courtyard were two lovely living areas, one blue room with a player piano and the other red room with a fireplace that was lit in the evening. There were lots of books and games available for guests to use. Being late March the weather was just right so we didn't have to bother with either heat or AC.

I read some of the other comments about noise of other guests. This is a natural effect of all the riads we stayed in -- with rooms surrounding a center courtyard, hearing the sounds of other guests who are up later or earlier will inevitably filter through to your room. Although I did not need them at Trois Mages, I keep earplugs handy for those situations, which can also help with the early call to prayer, especially if you are a light sleeper.

We had dinner at the riad, which I would highly recommend. I had a delicious vegetable soup, while the others enjoyed the briouats -- stuffed pastries. For a main meal my husband and I shared a delicious beef tanjia served with vegetables, and my daughter and her friend shared an enormous chicken pastilla.

We were traveling with 3 sixteen year old girls who were anxious to get back to the Jemaa El Fna square for one last walk around and some more henna (we spent a week in Marrakech before the desert tour). I was reluctant at first, as the riad is a bit to the north. However, it felt good to walk, and didn't really take that long -- maybe 15-20 minutes. It is actually a pretty straight shot to get there once you know the way, and Aziz was very helpful supplying us with a map and making sure we knew the landmarks.

We arose early to a delicious breakfast of eggs, different breads, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. My only regret is that we didn't have enough time to really get to know the people and the riad. We loved Marrakech so maybe we'll be back one day!

Had a wonderful time at the Riad! We arrived late on a Saturday night, were welcomed by the night guardian who served us mint tea in the lounge and recommended a nearby restaurant for dinner. He was extremely helpful and walked us part of the way there as Marrakech is a very easy place to get lost in!

The riad is very well cared for, with several beautiful sitting areas, and a lovely rooftop terrace where we had breakfast each morning. The manager, Aziz, was so helpful and friendly. He made reservations for us for dinner, made recommendations on places to visit, and sat with us several times just to chat and tell us about the area. He made us feel very at home!

We also took a cooking class with the riad's chef, Saida. It was an unbelievable experience! We started by going to the market with her to buy ingredients for our lunch, it is truly amazing to see her haggle with the vendors over the beautiful, fresh ingredients on their carts. After shopping, we went back to the riad where we prepared our lunch in the courtyard...briouats (shredded vegetables wrapped in pastry and fried) and a chicken tagine with preserved lemon, olives, and vegetables. Saida was very instructive and such a joy to work with!

The riad is very well situated, a 10 minute walk to the souks, about a half hour walk to the new town, and very near several excellent restaurants. Very highly recommended!

I have just returned from a 3 night stay at Riad Les Trois Mages, for the 2nd time and was certainly not disappointed. I have been to Marrakech several times, but after finding this place last year I didn’t feel the need to consider any other accommodation for this trip. This year I travelled as part of a group of 4 (2 couples) and had just as amazing a time as I did with just my mother last year.

I don’t want to repeat what so many others have already said, so will merely reiterate the key points: beautiful riad, great location, lovely rooms, stunning terrace and pool, but most of all amazing staff! Aziz and the whole team were just perfect, they made our trip.

As many people have mentioned before, the riad is very peaceful and quiet and, being a group of 4, we were very conscious of not wanting to disturb the other guests or to take over. That said we were all in desperate need of relaxation and so chose to spend a lot of our time relaxing in the riad, in between popping out for meals and sightseeing. Being such a small riad it is hard not to take over, but the staff couldn’t have been friendlier and more understanding –we were continually offered tea, coffee and water, even though we spent most of our time upstairs on the terrace (we did feel guilty and tried to help with the carrying of trays up and down the stairs)!

Thanks for having us and we look forward to returning next year :)

Just had a 3 night break in Marrakech and stayed in this wonderful Riad. The accommodation itself was lovely and had everything we needed and the food (and wine) was good too. However, it was the staff that really made it such a superb stay. Everyone from the kitchen staff to Aziz the Manager were friendly and helpful and seemed to want to make our stay as enjoyable as possible - which they did. We had Morrocan tea and pastries upon our arrival and while we were waiting for our taxi to the airport on our last day they brought us tea and cake (just out of the oven - delicious). The breakfasts were excellent and two of the mornings we were offered breakfast on the wonderful roof terrace, despite this meaning the staff had to trail up a long flight of stairs with several courses, no-one seemed to mind in the slightest. We booked a day excursion via Aziz to the Ourika Valley in the Atlas Mountains which I would highly recommend and our driver was really friendly and good fun and provided us with lots of information about the region. Aziz also recommended several great restaurants (the best by far was 'Le Comptoir'), booked us a table and transport to and from - we didn't need to do a thing. Overall we had a fabulous trip and very much enjoyed staying in this oasis of calm in a sea of chaos.
