Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We do not need to add much more to the amazing reviews shared thus far, simply fantastic. We needed to unwind after a manic 6 month home refurb and the stay exceeded our expectations. Nicely chilled, unassuming, breakfast at a time you want - perfect!
Great location - easy walk through the medina and the new town.
Tip: If rooms appear full on a travel site, worth contacting the hotel direct.

Room Tip: If a light sleeper ask for an internal facing room as there can be street noise. Also avoid the loca...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Riad Noire d'Ivoire and it was beyond amazing on so many levels and definitely the best place we have ever stayed. The riad itself is stunning and so beautifully designed with lovely touches everywhere you look. It's super peaceful, calm and amazingly relaxing. This itself may well be enough but on top of these exotic luxury surroundings comes the most fantastic utterly effortless service I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely, friendly and kind staff who are always on hand should you need anything but never intrusive. We literally spent the whole holiday marvelling at how wonderful everyone in the riad was. We ate out a couple of nights at other luxurious riads in the Medina and although they were also lovely in their own way, nothing was as good as the Riad Noire d'Ivoire and we always felt relieved to come through the door back "home". We were also upgraded to a suite which was such a treat, the room was beautiful as expected and just added to the wonderful experience. If you are thinking of going to Marrakech, believe the hype and book Riad Noire d'Ivoire, you won't be disappointed! We would like to say a huge thank you to Hassan and his amazing team for creating the perfect holiday for us, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech now, so really look forward to seeing you all soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely (I saw 3 price bands, ranging from cheapest to most expensive) but if you c...

Outside, chaos. Hawkers, cats everywhere, beggars, vendors selling fish on the sidewalk, meat hanging from hooks, men selling goat hooves, mopeds whizzing by an inch from your children, smells, sights, people. But once you ring the bell at the beautiful door of the Riad Noir d'Ivoire, you know you're home. And when you step inside, the chaos recedes and you are in a truly beautiful haven away from the insanity of the outside world. I don't think our family could have made it in Marrakesh without the rejuvenation of Noir d'Ivoire. It's not only the beauty and taste of the riad itself -- it's the feeling that, while there, you are family. Afaf and Hassan made sure every single day that we were taken care of, had what we needed, knew where we were going. Their staff went out of their way to take care of us, greet us with beautiful smiles, do our laundry, even escort us to places we couldn't find on our own. Each morning they asked us what our plans were for the day and offered advice and help, arranging an excellent guide for two of our days there. Initially we booked Noir d'Ivoire because of its gorgeous decor and ambiance, but we got so much more. I will never forget our incredible stay there, and hope to return!

Our 3rd visit and 3rd time in Panthere. The riad and staff are so welcoming that each time we come back it feels like coming home. Can't recommend highly enough. Already planning our return next summer.

My daughter and I stayed at this fabulous place in the heart of the 'buzz' it was delightful having our breakfast on the roof top. We were treated with kindness and care along with excellent directions.

Room Tip: Our room was automatically upgraded, optional, when a larger became available.

For four days in early June this magical place became our little piece of heaven on earth. An escape from reality and the feverish hustle and bustle of the streets of Marrakech. This is just one of those places that has to be experienced: Couscous the donkey escort on arrival and departure; the central yard open to the skies and reverberating with the sound of a gentle cascade of water; the long leisurely breakfasts at almost any time of day; and the fantastic staff.

Afaf, Hassan and the team created the most wonderful experience. Seemingly effortless support and the deftest of touch, proving the thought and experience that has gone into the perfect service provided. Even when there was a slight mishap with the incredible Mohammad Schumacher, the response was immediate and personal, will leave Hassan to tell those stories!

We both cannot wait to return, it was wonderful, well done to all of you, including the cats.

It's been a while since I travelled "properly". Having a desk job and enjoying good but predictable Western hotel chains has evidently softened me up. Marrakech was a complete culture shock. The heat was oppressive; it was 40 degrees when we were there and the mercury will be heading for the 50s in July and August. The smells, the hawkers and the mad max moped drivers add to this very alien melting pot.

But, bear with it. My wife and I transitioned from severe culture shock to acceptance to complete enjoyment over the course of our 5 day holiday, greatly facilitated by what is without doubt one of the best hotels we have stayed in.

Noir d'Ivoire gets it right on two key fronts. Firstly, it is stunning. This is an interior design mecca. Resplendent Moroccan cool with the original features of the Riad expertly restored to their full glory, set off by flawless interior design. Real wow factor. Secondly, the staff are excellent. The young manageress was engaging, knowledgable and a great ambassador for her country. Her team were attentive, entertaining and welcoming throughout. A special thank you to Hassan for your suggestions of what to see, when to see them and how to navigate the maze of the Medina. We greatly enjoyed our visit thanks to your expert local knowledge and warm welcome.

To cap it all, we had one of if not the best meals of our trip on the first night at the Riad, cooked by the Riad's resident chef "Mama". Lentil soup and chicken tagine wouldn't be our usual menu choices but Mama delivered subtle spice flavours and perfectly cooked food. We both agreed that she had the edge on Maison MK. It was a magical start to our holiday.

A thank you to all the staff at Noir d'Ivoire. Bravo.
