Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Hotel staff were exceptional in every way. Sent a driver to meet us ladies at the airport, BUT we arrived on a Saturday evening when the square was at its busiest. Cars cannot get close to the Riad as it is accessed via the souk and narrow alleyways. After 1pm cars cannot even get anywhere near the riad so we were met from the car by a kind but dishevelled old guy with a "cart" who took us and our handluggage through the madness of the square in the dark!! We would never have found the place without him so we tipped him well, but be prepared as the riad has no bright lights or neon signs - no identification from the outside - just a small label above the door bell. Anyway, once inside this zen like sanctuary, we were met by Mustafa with mint tea and an offer to escort us back to the mayhem as we wanted to go out to dinner. Also gave us his mobile number if we wanted him to meet us to come back later. It is tricky to find but we seemed to memorise some landmarks and got back ok. No alcohol served close to the mosque but we did find it in 1 or 2 places. The riad also serves wine/beer and dinner if you pre-order. In general we found alcohol fairly expensive. The riad people kindly arranged a private car and v knowledgeable driver to take us to the Atlas mountains for Euro50 each incl lunch. Would recommend this as we went to Kasbah Tamadot (Richard Bransons secret hideaway), saw some stunning scenery, climbed 2300meters to some waterfalls and visited an Argan oil cooperative. Great value for a good 9 hours trip. Rooms are v clean and modern but beware, toilet etc is rather open plan! Felt safe in the riad. Good nights sleep except that you will hear the "call for prayer" v early morning. Breakfast very nice served on really trendy white crockery. Lovely roof terrace for sunbathing. Nice loungers with some shade. The jacuzzi up there could do with the water changing tough! If you want a taste of the "real" Marrakech I would recommend this place. If you don't like crowds/dark alleys then perhaps stay in the new town!

Room Tip: Noise does echo from other guests. Only about 10 rooms total. Choose upstairsroms for more privacy...

Stayed here for four nights on a weekend break end of Feb/ early March 2014. Very nice inside and staff very helpful. Roof terrace lovely on a sunny day. Appears hard to find at first go but very easy thereafter. Noise travels easy at night in the Riad and on Saturday we were woken up by some noisy guests downstairs, other than that it was a great stay. Marrakech is in itself something of an experience and the villa wenge was an elegant retreat.

Room Tip: The Red Room has twin beds.

Stayed here in December 2013 with my partner and it was amazing. Beautiful hotel, great friendly staff and amazing food. Had a great time there and it was very close to the main square. You will want the hotel to get you the airport transfer as it is quite hard to find the hotel the first time you get to Marrakech. When you know the way to the main square it's easy to find. Breakfast was great the Mint tea was amazing. Really great Riad!

Room Tip: All rooms looked amazing.

We stayed here for 4 days and the staff were so helpful and lovely. Nothing was too much or hard work for them.
We brought a few bottles of bubbly at the airport and they happily chilled them for us.
Our first night we ate at the riad and the food was very very good although I would recommend eating at the night market for the experience.
Breakfast was slightly different each day but very tasty . would highly recommend this riad :-) it so quiet and blissful from the mad rush of the town.

Stayed for a week at the Riad Villa Wenge whilst exploring Marrakesh and could not have had a better time.
The staff were kind, the service excellent and the roof terrace a beautiful escape from the madness of the souks.
Riad arranged for taxis from and to the airport and went out of their way to provide an early breakfast on days when we were going out of the town early.
It seems like it would be quite hard to find down the backstreets, but once you have found your bearings it is surprisingly easy.
If you want to be in the heart of the action in the old part of the town then it is absolutely perfect.
Would recommend to anyone and if I go back it will be top of my list

This riad was a haven in a busy area of Marrakech. The staff were superb and provided for our every need. I must be honest and say I didn't like Marrakech. I found it a bit full on.My wife had surgery just prior to the holiday and it was probably not what we needed at this time. The riad however provided us with a quiet retreat . The food was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. Nothing was to much trouble to the staff who were happy to help with any problems.They also showed us were to change money and get the best rate and advised about where to eat. Be warned however this is in the centre of the median and some things you may see are not nice.the animals used for entertainment are not treated well and many people in this area see tourists as a cash crop.
