Riad Aguerzame
Ranked #20 of 502 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The unceasingly friendly Aziz and team push this riad up above "good" to "home-from-home" status!

We were looked after, fed well and given great (and detailed!) advice and assistance about the city throughout our four day stay. (Pepe Nero, just around the corner, was well worth booking in advance, though).

I fully recommend having an evening meal at the riad too, and drinking plenty of the home-grown orange juice.

Would come again (to hike over the mountains...)

We stayed at Riad Aguerzame for 4 days at the beginning of February. Marrakech is a great place to visit and this Riad makes it even better. We took advantage of the mid week package which included taxis to and from the airport and an evening meal on the first evening. After dinner Aziz took us to the central square for orientation and pointed out the key landmarks to enable our return. Our room was on the first floor and was quiet, clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nothing seemed too much trouble for Aziz and Laurent. They organised a day trip to the Atlas Mountains which was well worth it the cost was 50 Euros per person but included a guide and lunch. Also Aziz recommended several restaurants which we tried, all good but the best one was the Pepe Nero which was just around the corner from the Riad. In summary we had a very good time in Marrakech, and it’s largely thanks to the Riad--- we can highly recommend it and plan to return.

We agree with all the positive reviews we have read about this riad. We spent a wonderful few days in Marrakesh, made all the more enjoyable by the first class hospitality of Aziz and his team. We were made to feel so welcome and it really felt like our home throughout our stay, from the invaluable ‘induction’ talk that Aziz gave us which ensured we were well prepared for the souks to the excellent dinner and breakfast, unlimited mint teas and reliable recommendations regarding restaurants etc. Aziz was very knowledgeable and was able to give us all the advice we needed about the places we wanted to visit. He escorted us to the Djemaa el Fna on our first morning, pointing out land marks and ensuring that we had our bearings. The riad is a perfect haven situated within walking distance of all of the main attractions. The furthest we walked was to the Jardin Majorelle which took 25 minutes. In one of the quieter streets around the Djemaa this riad is peaceful and charming. We loved relaxing on the terrace at the end of the day, enjoying the sun and listening to the sounds of the Djemaa in the distance.

My husband and I recently stayed at Riad Aguerzame and it was a great stay! Aziz met us with mint tea and gave us a detailed overview of the best sights to see while we were there visiting. They were very helpful and set up a camel ride, dinner reservations and even took us to the square for our first visit. Marrakech can be very confusing but Aziz made sure we knew how to get back to the Riad. The room was very Moroccan traditional and spacious. We especially liked eating breakfast every morning in the beautiful courtyard. I would highly recommend staying here!

We stayed in Riad Aguerzame for a long weekend in January and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Aziz welcomed us with mint tea and nibbles and gave us some valuable info on Marrekech; what to expect, places to go, food recommendations etc then he walk us to the square to help us get our bearings. Every time we came back to the Riad, Aziz or one of his team was there to greet us with a drink and showed genuine interested in where we had been and what we had bought. Breakfast was lovely and during some rainy weather, Aziz was more than happy for us and other guest to remain chatting around the breakfast table drinking coffee until lunchtime when the rain finally stopped. Our room was on the ground floor – it’s the cheapest of the 4 rooms because of a lack of privacy, but we were aware of this and it didn’t bother us or pose a problem (if you are looking for a ‘romantic’ time, the ground floor room probably would not be recommended!). The Riad is well situated for all the attractions and restaurants, and Aziz was happy to make dinner reservations and book taxi’s – in fact, nothing was too much trouble. Dinner in the Riad was first class, and we also had dinner in PepeNero which is just around the corner which was highly recommended and for good reason!

We spent a couple of nights there during the second week of January.
The riad is nicely located, about 5 minutes walk from Jameea al fina
but in a relatively quiet side street so that it is rather quiet at night.
The room (in the upper level) was very nice, spacious, comfortable bed, nicely decorated. Everything said in the other reviews about the staff (in our case, Laurent was there during our visit) is true - he put us in contact with a good travel agency (noble tour), showed us around the city, gave us tips on the city and driving in Morocco, etc.

We arranged for transport to the Riad with them - if this is your first time to Marrakesh, do it, it is well worth the 20 Euros. The way back was with a petit taxi that Laurent also arranged, much cheaper but less reliable (as Laurent predicted...).

Room Tip: Upper level seems nicer

Can't recommend this highly enough. We stayed here for a long week to celebrate my partner's birthday and we were very well looked after. The Riad is lovely - an authentic Moroccan experience which is exactly what we were after, not a colourless corporate hotel. Laurent and Aziz looked after us really well, from meeting us at the airport, taking the time to help us get our bearings and advising on the best places to see. Nothing was too much trouble. Plus the endless cups of tea, wonderful food and the surprise birthday cake they prepared.
