We came for 7 days and everyday we felt like we were at home! it was so peaceful after coming in from the souks. A tranquil place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of marakech!! The breakfast was nice and the meals were amazing!! better than any restaurant!! The staff treated us like family and helped with anything we needed to make us at home. definitely a place I would recommend to anyone.thanks for having us!!
That we had to go home.... :-(
Riad Bab Lakhmiss is an excellent place to stay. At walking distance from the soukh, this is a peaceful home where you can enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of Marocco. Julien, the owner, really does everything to make you feel comfortable. He is prepared to answer all your questions and explained the culture and Marrocain way of life. Upon request he can arrange visits and transportation and the like. He jointed us visiting the local market and showed us the Marrocain way of life. Together with his staff, Abdel and Sana'a, they really make the Riad a safe home to stay. And their cooking workshops are excellent. Especially when you can enjoy the result at the rooftop garden.
The staff are excellent and couldn't be more helpful. We arrived late at night which wasn't a problem and even when we missed breakfast by about 3 hours (we didn't know breakfast was included!) they were fine about it and still brought breakfast for us. The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. The hotel itself looks very traditionally Moroccan and is just what we hoped for. It is beautiful in the day time and all lit up and sparkly at night time. Perfect for relaxing with a drink in the lounge or upstairs on the roof terrace. Everything is exactly as seen on the photos and the hotel is kept very clean and tidy. Marrakech is very busy and there is always people out and about at night but despite the hotel being open air it is very quiet and peaceful at night. Guaranteed good nights sleep in this hotel. Excursions, spas and transport can also be arranged through the Riad and it is cheaper to arrange them once you get to Marrakech rather than in advance on the internet. The 3day Sahara tour is definitely worth doing if you have time! Amazing experience! We can't fault this hotel at all and will definitely recommend to friends- thank you Julian and Said for all your help!
It is difficult to find your way to/from the hotel, especially in the dark but the staff will try their best to help you find your way or arrange a taxi to pick you up. We decided it was worth paying for taxis to avoid being stressed since we had limited time, but I'm sure with perseverance you could work out the route to the square.
Very quite in the old medina. Close to all the shops. The staff is really nice, polite and helpful.
It's hard to find for the first time.
From beginning to end, an amazing stay. The owner went out of his way to find us in the busy and confusing streets of Marrakech, providing us with any requests including cold beers (which, at this point, were seriously needed), maps, late night dips in plunge pools - unbelievable hospitality in a truly stunning Riad. Modern with a traditional twist, expect super-clean sheets, authentic lanterns, pretty mosaics and an enchanting roof terrace all for the price of a short taxi ride. Incredible value. Best night's sleep of our 10 day trip and would highly recommend this clean and serene guest house to anyone visiting the city.
How short our stay was here! We wish we'd have found this gem sooner as we'd stayed in a couple of ropey Riads previous to this. It was our last night however, so it wasn't possible. As a young couple - 27 and 28 - we had been pretty last minute with our bookings (10 mins before arrival!) so we were playing a bit of a hotel lottery. Still, this came up trumps.
The rooms and the staff were very nice, friendly. Many thanks to Said and Sena, they were very hospitality, and helpful.
A great place, tucked away just outside the main touristy areas, but close to everything. Extremely attentive and friendly staff that was always available and gave great sightseeing tips. The cool plunge pool was great on a hot summers day!
This was the most amazing first holiday my boyfriend and I could have hoped for. And it was mostly down to this amazing Riad and how incredible the staff were. Julien was lovely, but the star of the show was Saiid, who was just the warmest and most helpful person ever. He was a complete gem! The Riad itself was beautiful. We spent our breakfasts on the lovely solarium, and our evenings dipping our feet into the refreshing plunge pool. Our room was beautifully and traditionally Moroccan, and the air conditioning provided a great relief from the scorching conditions of marrakech. Our room was cleaned every day, which was lovely to come back to. Lovely breakfasts, and our every need was attended to. The Riad itself was quite difficult to find, and we did manage to get lost a number of times. As simple as it sounds, we learnt to follow the blue signs pointing to Jamaa el Fna (the professional ones, not the handwritten ones). Pay attention, and you will find the square. To find your way back, you have to backtrack and follow the signs for Bab Debbagh (this is what it says on the back side of the signs pointing towards Jma El Fna) and this will take you the majority of the way home. You will then need to work out your own technique for finding the Riad itself. My boyfriend and I looked for specific doors or things that stood out to remind us when to take a turning. Once you work out a route, it will only take 15 minutes each way to the square. We spent every night in the square, which was just magical! The atmosphere in marrakech is indescribable! This was the holiday of a lifetime, and we would 100% go back, and we would definitely stay in Riad Bab Lakhmiss again.
the riad is located in the old town, very central, within walking distance to djemaa el fna (market square). the riad offers great 24hr service, very cordial and obliging staff, a beautiful and amicable atmosphere and is very clean. i can definitely recommend it!
All of the staff were excellent, and the riad exceeded all expectations. It was a very homely place and very easy to settle in.
It was difficult to get used to navigating around the medina, sometimes quite stressful!
Loved the ambiance, very hospital. Said & Julien made sure we had a great time in the Riad.
Would have liked a bit more options on breakfast, but that's a very small point of criticism on the otherwise great service.
Rooms are clean and with A/C. the staff and owner are lovely and helpful. Beautiful courtyard and terrace. very good breakfast
just a little bit difficult to find, if you arrive straight from the airport I would suggest to use the Riad taxi service.
Fantastic Riad in a fantastic city! Great value for money. Espacialy the staff is great (Julien, Senna and our friend Said!). They will help you with everything (excursions, the prices, find your way into the medina, etc). They also make a great breakfast every morning. The rooms are very nice and it's really a romantic Riad with a nice terrace on the roof. The location is perfect. When you know the medina and the souks it's a 5 min walk to the souks and 15 min walk to Djema al Fna. If you don't know the way the staff will help you very good. When you arrive at the airport, make use of the airport shuttle Julien offers, because the Riad is hard to find the first time. You will get lost in the medina! The Wifi connection is also good. When we go back to Marrakech we come back to this riad for sure! For anyone who is looking for a riad, don't look further and book this one!
The riad is in the medina and is not easy to find it aqt the first time. Once arrived at the riad, Julien or Said gave us all the intructions for can move for the medina and find the typical places to visit. We arrived at night and were totally lost in the street and the manager of the riad -Julien- joined us and showed a place to take a dinner. This guy is a really lovely person, very nice and helpful, like Said, the man who works in the night. The riad had a beautiful terrace for take a very good brekafast in the mornings. The room was clean and have air conditioned. As the riad had empty rooms, they offered us to choose what we wanted. A big pleasure to meet such a very nice persons. Tottaly recommendable.
In this day, wifi doesn´t work, but the problem was of the telephone company.
Very difficult to find the riad. A more detailed map of the area would be helpful. Other than that a very enjoyable stay
Plunge pool.Julian.said.and Jenna.calm.
Breakfast could have been more choice.omelet.fresh fruit.I got very tired of bread and pancakes everywhere in Morocco.more fresh Orange maybe a small jug and the cat.that's only cos I'm allergic too far from square easier to fund going but coming back was a nightmare to find didn't go out in evening didn't feel safe
Staff, Julien, Saana, Said... Location, not far (15' if you find/take short-cut through souks)
Leaking airco not fixed whole week long
Riad is located in a quiet part of the old medina of Marrakech, yet close (5 min. walk) to the souks and Jamma El Fna. Julien (owner of Riad) is just great. Heleped us to navigate through the narrow and many, many streets, proposed us some great shops and sites to visit. Rooms are clean, lovely decorated, comfortable, aircon works perfectly, also the wifi. Great roof terrace where the breakfast is served. For the hot summer days there is a small swimming pool in the lobby. Everything was great! Thank you Julien and your team!
One of the best Hotels I have ever stayed in. This Riad has wonderful decor and Host Julien is exceptional in his commitment and attitude. His staff as well were 10/10 and very attentive. We counted 5 or 6 bedroom Riad (so get in quick!) with a roof garden and atrium that opens out to the inside courtyard on ground floor. Breakfast was traditional Moroccan food with plenty of bread and sweet spreads which were good and plentiful! Julien also offers a dinner which is reasonably priced and very good. We didnt feel safe going out into the souks at night so this was a good option for us. Room and bathroom was great although it was hot in the room (usual for Marakech!) so Julien may be able to provide a fan at night. We did not request so unsure. The Riad is in the Medina so very close to main square and the winding souk roads and tannery are only 5mins walk, although pack a map as it is like a labyrinth! Great experience gettin lost in the markets! Great stay and highly recommend.
Julien offered a taxi service from airport/train station which we did not accept - this was a mistake! We got a taxi from the airport who dropped us in the middle of nowhere. You should take up this service as Juliens driver brings you straight to the door and much cheaper than other taxi drivers who hustle tourists. Not a negative for hotel, just a warning regarding arrival. The only improvement I would suggest is if the hotel provided information on the many day trips etc away from Marakech into desert, as we found it hard to find info and some agents were quite unreliable. I am being very picky though.
The staff were very kind at the Riad and very accomodating. Breakfast was a nice personal spread and served up on the terrace in the sun. Loved that just behind the Riad was a street which was only frequented by the locals and sold all sorts of kebabs and sweets for less than 5 dirhams!
When we were there the plunge pool was drained as it was being refurbished, which was disappointing as that had been one of the main attractions to the Riad. Also, for anyone who has never stayed in a Riad, it is probably worth knowing that the bathroom doesn't have a door and there is no key to the bedroom!
I stayed on the Raid one whole week and the experience was amazing. The Staff and the owner are very helpfull and gentle. The Breakfast is very good and the the relation between quality and price is excelent. The dorms don't have key but you can fell completely secure.
The riad is a bit dificult to find and the confusing streets mainly in the night but with the help of julien (the owner) we learn a easy way to go from riad to the souks and jemaa el fna
Julian was a terrific host - always asking how we were and if there was anything that he could do to make our stay better. Be prepared to get lost a few times - while maps are provided it's easy to get turned around while getting to/from the Riad. Julian was able to arrange all of our transportation thankfully - while it is much cheaper to arrange transportation yourself, the convenience is well worth the additional expenses in my opinion. Breakfast was great - simple Moroccan breads, but the coffee was terrific. The Riad is a huge value for the expense.
There are no doors to the in-room restroom - be prepared.While the Riad was lovely, we wished that we would have stayed closer to the Square to avoid stress while on vacation.
Lovely Riad with excellent service! The owner Julien is without a doubt one of the most service-minded people I've met. He helped us with everything from booking tables at restaurants to recommending us things to do and what to see. Our room was clean, big and fully equipped. Breakfasts and afternoons on the sunny terrace were lovely!
I've been this Riad 3/11-3/13. It was simply great. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable clean room, delicious meal. Not only continental breakfast, but dinner is great. Staff are really attentive and friendly. Though it's difficult to find the Riad, Julien shows us good way. Enjoy entertaining mint tea.
Julien and his staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating to us during our stay. He made every effort to ensure we got the most from our trip and that we were well informed and well looked after. The Riad is located within a short distance of all the main sights within the old town and offers an excellent base for exploring the area. The building is furnished in the traditional style and was incredibly comfortable. The breakfast that was provided each morning was lovely and made even more enjoyable by the experience of eating on the roof terrace. Unfortunately, we didn't get to try the evening menu ourselves but spoke with another couple who said it was amongst the best meals they had during their stay. Overall, our time at Riad Bab Lakhmiss was fantastic and we would highly recommend this to other travellers.
