“Perfect Marrakech Boutique with fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2011

This boutique hotel owned by french designer Isabelle Aubry is SUPERB. Very romantic venue. Brilliant location - right in the middle of the market square and walking distance to all the sites. But it's unbelievably quiet for such a central location - a real oasis of luxury and calm amid the bustle of the historical centre.
As for the hotel itself it cannot be faulted. Beautifully decorated and furnished and because it’s only 7 rooms, most of the time the place is really quiet and you have the common areas (bar/lounge/rooftop terraces/pool area) to yourself. Spa on-site was also great. Must definitely give it a try.
Staff genuinely friendly and sincere, creating a home-like atmosphere to the place. Lovely small touches - a fresh rose every day in the en-suite bathroom, rose petals scattered over our bed and chocs on our pillow each night… And there was fruit and water in the room when we arrived.
Food in the on-site Moroccan restaurant was fab too. The 2 dinners we had there were delightful moments.
All in all ONE OF THE BEST BOUTIQUE we ever stayed in. Definitely a place we would love to return to.
Tip: in case you do not book your accommodation direct with the hotel we recommend booking airport transfers with them anyway: much better standard of vehicle and in the end cheaper than haggling over the airport taxis. Recommend also making reservations at the restaurant well in advance as they cannot accommodate many people and the place is very popular.

My husband and I stayed in Le Riad Monceau for a three day break in March and found the total experience to be fantastic. The staff are so helpful and friendly and the Riad is everything you would want and expect. The location is ideal, just a minute away from the main square.
Would have no hesitation at all in visiting Le Riad Monceau again.

I just logged into Trip Advisor and remembered i hadn't rated my stay at this awesome Riad. Then noticed they have been penalised for false reviews, i find this a shame as every review i read originally stacked up and was the reason we booked. Hopefully you'll find this review although think it's unlikely now if your just browsing trip advisor for your perfect retreat as they have been shunted to 179 on the list - My opinion NOT FAIR.
The stay was perfect from start to finish, we were collected on time from the airport and taken to the main square where another chap greeted us and took our luggage and guided us during a short walk to the Riad itself. When the doors opened we soon realised we had made the right choice leaving behind us the craziness that is marrakech to discover a perfect oasis of serenity.
Mint Tea and pastries on arrival, then up to our suite. We were lucky be able to book the Pasha Suite and yes the Jacuzzi is as amazing as it looks on the Website. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and a huge bed. You will not want to leave this room but if you do make sure you dine in the restaurant - Food is devine. The staff were so friendly and helpful both prior to and during the stay. I try very hard to find fault in most places i visit but can honestly say it's Perfect.
Couple of tips if you want to experience a really good meal take a taxi to the new part of the city, the restaurants are first class and no different to what you would find in any good district of a European city. If you decide to stay and eat in the Medina in my opinion you will be playing roulette, i'm sure there are some lovely restaurants there we were just unlucky in finding one.
Hopefully Le Riad-Monceau will solve there grievance with Trip Advisor and this hotel will once again return to one of the top listings where it belongs!

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for this.
As you have noticed some people have obviously decided to give Riad Monceau a hard time on the Internet and I can assure you the support we received from our true and real guests is mostly appreciated by all our staff members. They are the ones that really matter to us ; they give so much to our guests and to ourselves that we definitely owe them all a big THANK YOU.

We stayed in the Riad Monceau for 4 nights on early February '11.
My husband and me found that the staff were extremely courteous & very helpful. The hotel is only about 150 meters from the Djema El Fna which is a huge bonus when time comes to explore the historical quarter ; it was great to know we were so central.
The hotel is of a great beauty and our room was exactly like advertised on there website. I would definitely recommend this beautiful retreat.

Beautiful stylish look for this Boutique type hotel. Small number of rooms so more personal and intimate. Room was spotless clean, spacious and comfortable and desk staff and Manager very friendly and helpful. Just off the main square. Perfect and safe location. Excellent on site Moroccan restaurant. Loved our 5 night stay.

Excellent position in centre of city. A Beautiful Riad which we would definitely recommend. Staff and facilities were great. Had 5 days in early February. Went for day trip to Atlas Mountains / Ourika Valley which is highly recommended - the hotel arranged this for us. Ask for Hakim to take you - he is an excellent driver and guide.

Great place - only 2 issues:

1. The beer / lager was not cold enough ! - there's nothing like a v. cold beer when it's hot.
Unfortunately, the majority of the time the beer was marginally cold (at best) or warm (at worst).
2. The air conditioning units need to be more effective
