Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2011

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

The location of this riad is perfect, but this is also it's down-side. The wailing from a next door mosque from 5 am is impossible to ignore, while the noise from restaurant diners also continued beyond midnight.

Whilst the staff were all friendly, few spoke good English.

It was also disappointing when, after my wife fell ill just as the main course had arrived in the restaurant, we received a full bill the next day, even though we had to leave just after the starter. A goodwill gesture would have been welcome.

Thank you for staying with us and mentioning that Riad Monceau as a perfect location in the historical quarter of Marrakech.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about the old city of Marrakech.
Morocco is a Muslim country and in old quarters of the cities – but in new quarters as well ! – you find dozens (hundreds!) of mosques. The idea for Muslim people is that wherever you stay you MUST hear clearly the prayer call. That is part of the Muslim religion... and that is also part of the package when you book for a stay in such countries!
A guest staying in a hotel – luxury or not – located in a place like the Marrakech historical quarter (we call it the Medina) must be prepared to hear the prayer call five times a day and years of experience show us that most guests understand this (I would even say that most of them appreciate this) at this is fully part of the special ambiance and atmosphere you get here and that make things so different.
While we sympathize with this guest’s plight, he does not represent a typical guest at a hotel located in the old city of Marrakech.

Apart from one quibble (see below), everything was excellent. Helpful and friendly staff, great location, high ambience.

However, this is a popular Riad for dinner, and the noise from guests at dinner is constant and intrusive if you have a room on the courtyard. Presumably staff would have felt embarassed about asking gusets to keep their noise down, and we did not want to put them in that position, so did not ask them to do so. We did raise this as an issue with the manager.

The Riad is a real haven during the day, being peaceful, relaxing and quiet.

But if you're someone who needs their sleep, beware!
