This hotel was great . Very good location . The staff was amazing . Only one problem the hot water for the shower ran out to quickly we were a family of four . The owners of the riad were very nice. I would definately stay there again.

With traditional architecture the interior Is nicely decorated. The bathroom is nicely fitted with brass fittings. I liked the style. However, the room I stayed was bit small fitted with a bed that has large metal frame at the bottom. I stumbled with the frame and got hurt several times. The wooden doors seemed not enough to give a feeling of security. We had a nice breakfast.

It was now for the second time I stayed in this adorable little Riad Amin near the Royal Palace and opposite the Sahadian Tombs. The location is ideal as it's a bit set off the full buzz but still only a five to ten minute walk to Djemaa-El-Fna. The Sahadian Tombs are across the street.
The Staff super friendly, competent and very attentive. Anything you ask them gets taken care of straight away.
Upon arrival one receives a warm welcome with a pot of famous peppermint tee and Moroccan biscuits. From that moment onward the rush we come from ceases.
The rooms and suits are all tastefully and individually decorated. The roof terrace is spacious and offers a wonderful view over Marrakech and beautiful sunsets.There's not a too much or too little. There are the odd small appliances that might need a little bit of fixing and adjusting but in the end one has to bare in mind that this is Morocco and a part of Africa...Things take more time to be done and that sense of more time is what we visitors appreciate, no?!

Room Tip: Some rooms are smaller than others. Depending on the length of stay you might want to chose a bigger...

Myself and my girlfriend went to Marrakech in Summer 2012 and we trawled trip advisor for a riad to stay while we were. The city itself was beautiful and often sapped you of your energy and it was a delight to return to the riad amin in Kasbah, a perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of the Djaama El Fna. The staff could not do enough for you and were always on hand when you required any assistance. Breakfast was served as and when you arose and it was fresh and served with a smile. The room was fantastic and a typical riad sized room with a bathroom that was a pleasure to shower in. The riad did have it's own pool but we opted to venture elsewhere as it didn't receive a huge amount of sunshine. The location of the Riad is perfect if you want to be just that perfect distance from the centre, a 5 - 10 minute walk and safe at all times of the day. Fantastic views from the roof of the Kasbah Mosque and sun loungers on the roof which catches the sun all day. Would definitely recommend and a big thank you to the staff there.

Room Tip: stating the obvious but room quality increases in price, contact the riad directly for discounts as...

We stayed a few nights in this lovely little hotel where the rooms are set around a Moroccan courtyard. It is only a few minutes walk from the souks. The staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean (if a little cramped). We enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts. You can get a massage here and there is a small rooftop pool. So nice to come home to after a day of touring in the busy city.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms are quieter

Myself and 5 friends recently enjoyed 4 days at the Riad Amin June 2012 and we really couldn't fault it or the staff. Location wise it is in the Medina (Kasbah district) and around a 10-15 minute walk to the main square Djemma el Fna, which we found fine. Our suite's were beautiful and spacious and the Riad itself was really lovely throughout. Breakfast each morning with pancakes and orange juice was a wonderful start to the day. The Riad is so peaceful - it really is an oasis of calm when you walk in through the front door . There is a small plunge pool which was idlyllic after the stresses of shopping and sight seeing.The staff were all so helpful and friendly especially Simon would made our stay wonderful. We would not hesitate to recommend the Rhiad Amin to any traveller thinking of visiting Marrakech
