“Simply perfect”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

The riad W has a modern, streamlined decoration with morroccan craft accents that helps its inhabitants relax after long, fun days exploring the bustling city all around it.
Because make no mistake, you will feel like it's your house for the time you stay. Elsa and her staff are great, always present and very discreet, taking care of even the smallest thing very quickly. The rooms are simple and beautiful, and the 2 terraces and patios all make for great places to relax. At times, it was almost difficult to head out of W and back into the city. And yet, it's located right next to everything, while still being wonderfully quiet inside.
The riad is spotless and the rooms very comfortable. Definitely a place we heartily recommend.

This small riad is in an exceptional oasias of alm yet next to the chaotic bustling medina. Its authentic and local and right in the midst of where i personally think you want to be. The room was spacious, lovely designed and very clean. It was quiet and calming and the breakfast was simple and delicious. Elsa was a gem, she helped us with everything and was super gracious. We were travelling two girls alone and she was like our mother. I would definitely stay there again. For me there is no other place other than the W.

I highly recommend Riad W to all travellers to Marrakech. It's perfectly located just a 5 min walk from the main square, but a real oasis of calm to relax in after the hustle and bustle of the old town. The decor of the rooms was very individual and tasteful, and the communal areas and the internal courtyard with its loungers and pool is a lovely place to sit and read in the sun. We stayed in the suite, which was absolutely huge and a great space for 3 of us. What really made the trip for us though was the welcome and hospitality of Elsa and her staff, who really went out of their way to accommodate us (especially when one of our party was ill, they nursed her back to health which was above and beyond the call of duty). I also recommend taking an evening meal at the riad, its excellent value and the most delicious food I tasted on my trip there.

If I have to come back to Morroco I will go there straight away! It is a lovely place to stay. Only 5 minuts walking from "La Place". Elegant and stylish riad. The food is amazing, and the people working there is so friendly.
Elsa is the owner, and she is a lovely lady. She knows everything about Marrakesh! On the top of the riad there is a terrace where you can see beautiful sunsets, relax or read a book. It is the most beautiful place to stay!!

Great location just 5 min walking from the markets and the main square - but in a very quiet tiny street with no noise at all or disturbance.

Fantastic service and treatment - Elsa the owner is just such a star - you will love her! Amazing food, super clean rooms and toilets and just beautiful terraces perfect for a sun bath! Fast WIFI internet connection.

Very cosy, stylish and full attention to detail... I loved the olive trees in the patio!

Highly recommended to experience Morocco at its best!

Room Tip: All rooms were great - the one at the very top was super cosy tho!

What a fantastic perfect excellent first time in Marrakech. Riad W, our host Elsa the most wonderful lady, and her very nice, serviceminded staff of 3 girls.
Excellent breakfast, excellent dinner - Elsa is there for you to help you in any way - when you arrive, she will make sure that you from the beginning feel at home:-). Take you to the square the first time, a 4 min walk - if you want to be in the authentic Medina in the middle of everything choose Riad W. When you come back after a long day of mystery and adventure, RIad W is the most peaceful and beautiful place to relaxe.
My daughter and I will come back very soon - we already miss Elsa and her wonderfuld home Riad W.
Thank you so much Elsa!

Only 5 minutes walk from "La Place" you will find this hidden paradise. Riad W is an elegant gem of Marracech dusty alleys, it was a great feeling to come home after long days of shopping in the teeming labyrinths forming town. All is quiet (no minaret nearby), nice and quiet, the whole place breathes grace and elegance, we were more than happy with our week in this place, highly recommend to all who wants to enjoy their holiday and their room.
