“Wonderful host, food and location”
Reviewed 25 July 2010

Riad Aguerzame is in an excellent location - a few minutes walk to Djemma al fna and the souks. Antione, the host, gave us execellent directions to give to the taxi driver and then came to meet us when we arrived at the point where the streets became too narrow for motor vehicles. He welcomed us with mint tea and loads of tips on where to go and what to do in Marrakech and then took the time to walk with us to show us the way to the souks - he also gave us a map in case we got lost on the way back. The food was splendid - fruit tagine with fresh melon for dinner accompanied by an intriguing aperitif (guess the flavour if you can!). Breakfast again was good - fresh bread and pancakes with yoghurt, jam, cheese and a superb home made marmalade made from the oranges which grow in the courtyard of the Riad. After breakfast we spent a few happy hours exploring Marrakech, came back understandably hot and dusty and Antoine was happy for us to take a shower and relax with more mint tea etc before the taxi arrived to take us to the airport - he is a wonderful host and the Riad is wonderfully kept in a very convenient location. If you decide to come here ask Antione to book a hammam for you at Riad Menzeh ( which also has a very lovely french host) - a fabulous relaxing experinece.

Whilst spending days googling for accommodation in Marrakech and the Atlas mountains I came across Trip Advisor and Riad Aguerzame.
After booking the Riad and informing Antoine of our plan to first go to the Atlas Mountains, he arranged for a taxi to take us from the airport to our hotel and collect us four days later to take us to the Riad at half the cost offered by our hotel.
Antoine makes you feel as if you are staying with friends rather than an anonymous hotel waiting to present you with the final bill. From the initial introductory tour nothing is a problem. The rooms are cozy but not small with a large central atrium open to the sky. Located deep in the Medina it's an excellent location for tourists almost everything is walkable, you can imagine you are living for a short time as a local. Safety was never an issue we walked everywhere at all hours. Everything spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were excellent, the room rate fair, it is a cool oasis sheltered from hectic life of the Medina outside. Would I stay again ? without a doubt.

We stayed with Antoine and his staff in early July for 4 nights and thouroughly enjoyed our time there. As we were arriving late and didn't want to venture into the centre on our first night we arranged to have dinner at the riad. The fish tagine which Antoine prepared was amazing (having requested the receipe we cannot wait to make this at home!) and the riad itself has a real homely feel, very comfortable and relaxing.

The following morning we were shown how to make our way to the square and what to look out for so we could make our way back, also during our stay we were offered tips on what to visit, what we should pay and how to negotiate! We also arranged a visit to a private hammam through Antoine and we were not dissapointed.

Marrakech is a very hectic and lively place to visit and this riad, which is only a short walk away from it all, is an oasis of calm to return to at the end of the day. If you wish to experience true Marrakech and stay in a traditional riad I would highly recommend this one.

Our first riad stay in Morocco at Riad Agerzame had left an indelible impression; especially the wonderful assistance offered by Antoine. You are a marvel, you truly treated us like honoured guests. Aguerzame is ideally located just away but within easy access of the noisy and bustling medina. It was very comfortable and well decorated in traditional Moroccon style. We enjoyed our chicken tajine very much and the dark chocolate dessert was yummy. Lots of green tea, nice breakfast, there was a real homely feeling about the place. This was a terrific start for our stay in Morocco, thanks to Antoine who was the difference. Hajijohn, Shirley, Zubair, Kathreen and Hanna

My husband and I just got back from Morocco and we stayed at Riad Aguerzame in Marrakech. This was the most exquisite part of our stay. Situated by a close walk to Jenma El Fna, your entry into this riad is calm, peaceful, and comfortable. The host, Antoine, is extremely gracious and makes you feel at home. He is absolutely helpful and will make you feel comfortable and a Marrakechi the moment you arrive. I desperately would love to go back! I highly recommend staying here!

Antoine is the perfect host. His riad is full of his personal touches - from the great music to the delicious food to the sumptuous style. He has created a relaxing retreat in a beautiful Moroccan setting.

Best of all, he will make your stay in Morocco much easier by sharing insider tips on shopping, sightseeing, restaurants - you name it. He also has suggestions for guides and excursions.

The riad is convenient and reasonably priced. Can't be beat!

We visited the Riad in June 2010 and it was so lovely. Antoine and his staff were exceptionally kind and helpful and really made our stay comfortable.

We ate breakfast every day with fresh bread and freshly squeezed OJ as well as home made marmalade!

We enjoyed Dinner one evening cooked by the team and it was the single best meal we had during our stay. The food was modern, fresh, locally sourced and imaginative. Highly recommended!

Antoine recommended and arranged some trips for us to a Hammam and the Atlas Mountains which were the highlights of our trip.

One thing we would say about Marrakech in general is, be ready for the shop keepers and traders who were at times rather aggressive and impolite. The locals in the mountains though couldn't have been more helpful!

This Riad is ideally located for the Medina and we loved our stay.
