Riad Christina
Ranked #348 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed 28 March 2010

We stayed at the Riad Christina for two nights. Like many of the riads in Marrakech, to reach the Riad Christina you have to negotiate many narrow streets. However, it is relatively easy to find not far off the busy Rue Dabachi.

We were welcomed with mint tea and home made biscuits and immediately made to feel very at home. Lovely, traditional decor with a small plunge pool on the ground floor. Our room was Gingembre and was superb, again with really traditional furnishings.

The service from the staff was absolutely excellent and I cannot thank them enough for how welcome we were made to feel. Every need and wish was catered for! They do not speak English at all really, so if you do have some French this is helpful. However, I think this adds to the riads charm.

This is a beautiful riad, in a good location. Very peaceful, with little noise from the neighbouring streets. The main highlight is the staff however, who are just wonderful. I would not consider staying in a hotel in Marrakech, riads like this are perfect to get a true sense of the place.

We have justed stayed 5 nights in the Riad Christina. It is a wonderful, hospitable place where you are made to feel really welcome.
The service is excellent and incredibly friendly and warm. We even got those delicious pancakes on our last morning at 06.15 AM!
It is very easy to find and a true retrat from the craziness of loud Marrakech.
We can only recommend this place.

Riad Christina is a short 5 minute walk from the main square in Marrakech. The street that the riad is on is poorly lit at night, but it is easy enough to find during the daylight.

Upon our arrival, our host graciously served us mint tea and cookies in the beautifully decorated interior courtyard. Every room in the house, including our bedroom, was tastefully decorated with Moroccan furnishings. In the morning we were served a nice breakfast of Moroccan pancakes, honey, bread, jams, fresh orange juice and coffee on the rooftop terrace which was lovely.

There is a cute jacuzzi in the house, but unfortunately the heater broke while we were there and we were not able to use it (no fault of the host.)

Our main problem occurred during our first night there when we came home at night and the host was not there to answer the door. Since we were not given a key to the riad and were just instructed to ring the doorbell, we were frustrated by this situation.

If you speak a language other than french or arabic, communication with the hosts may be difficult as their english is somewhat broken. They were however happy to help us with all of our requests including using their internet, phone and teaching us how to make the delicious mint tea.
