  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We stayed at the Riad Elias for 4 nights. Said the owner is most possibly the nicest man in Marrakech. He was extremely helpful and amenable throughout our entire stay. We also recommend taking up the offer of an evening meal at the riad, the home cooked tagine was delicious. A short walk to the Medina and main square, the riad is ideally situated for exploring the city on foot. A lovely and hospitable authentic riad experience. A wonderful first experience in Marrakech!

    Syed is an excellent host, he couldn't do more for us. He organised our transfer to the airport, allowing us to avoid the hostile haggling we experienced on getting from the airport to the riad. He provided breakfast at whatever time we wished to have it.

  • 2.0.Poor

    To be honest we would struggle to say anything good about this property.Certainly not for the fainthearted!!! I realize that it's meant to be a 'traditional' accommodation but this is taking it too far. Believe me, it looks nothing like the photos! Unfortunately, it rained a lot when we were there but there is nothing to do in the Riad, they only offer one evening meal which you have to book at breakfast, same menu every night consisting of soup, chicken or lamb couscous. You cannot get drinks or snacks unless you want to risk your life and fight your way through the souk. They advertise a roof terrace but trust me its not a nice place to spend your time. I certainly couldn't recommend this to anyone especially if you are elderly or have children. The bathroom is dangerous and rather than a stone shower tray which is stained and slimy and the brass wash basin surrounded by dirty stone tiles, it should have a porcelain tray with a handle to grab when getting in and out. It cant be easy to clean and is totally unhygienic We didn't even see the steam room as advertised and the 'pool' is not what anyone could call a pool!! Oh, and beware of paying cash at the Riad as the manager will only accept cash for any extras...wonder why ?

    The property was difficult to find in the beginning. A lovely old house with a fountain pool in the middle, next to a large palm tree. 10 Minutes walk to the main square. Room amenities could be better. Missed having a tea/coffee maker in the room as well as a TV. Good and helpful host..A rather small bed (length). Nice continental breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. Overall a good stay...

    We LOVED staying at the Riad Elias. The owner, Said, is a wonderful host and he made us feel at home. The lunch upon arrival was the best we had during our days in Marrakesh, so I totally recommend booking a meal there. We were there with our 10 month old baby and it was a very family-friendly environment - Said even babysit our baby while we had brealfast every morning (thank you!). Each morning there was something new for breakfast like the morocan pancake, croissants, morocan bakery or pain au chocolat. The Riad is like an oasis away from the busy streets but very close to the main square and souks. Great to return for nap time after the long walks. Very clean room, private bathroom and clean common areas too. The room was cleaned every day. The access to the riad is through a narrow street but we felt safe in the area and walking in the evening was also fine. Even though the pool isn't active, the water in the patio gives it a nice ambiance while listening to the birds. We didn't use the terrace but it was acessible if we wanted to go there. Finally the room was very spacious, had a lot of natural light coming from the arcades of the riad, aid conditioner and there was a baby bed added for us at no extra cost. I totally recommend staying here.

    Incredibly helpful and friendly staff that cater for your times if you have booked tours. The riad manager helps and encourages you to learn basics of the language in a really easy manner. Would 100% recommend to a friend or family .

    Great shirt stay

    Lovely riad close to the Médina. The staff was wonderful and very helpful with recommendations. The hotel is surprisingly quite for being so close to the market and was very clean. The beds are pretty firm, but that is standard for Morocco. The breakfast was also delicious. We had a very short stay and it was just what we needed for the night.
