We really enjoyed staying at Riad Bab Lakhmiss for the 4 nights we were in Marrakech. Julien and his staff were excellent and couldn't be more helpful. I would recommend getting an airport drop off and make sure you try the food here, it was the best we had in Marrakech!!
After a wander through the Medina to the square at night, finding our way back to the Riad for the first time was not easy! Not a problem once you are used to the streets which didn't take long once we had done it once in daylight.
First of all the staff including julien and abdel were extremely welcoming and made every effort to ensure our trip was memorable and fun. The riad was clean, modern and within close walking distance from jemaa el fnaa. All of our requests were accommodated and I really couldn't recommend this riad highly enough.
This property offers impeccable service with excellent value for money. The staff couldn't do enough for you and definitely helped make the trip a success. Thank you all!
That we had to leave!
Some people mention that this place is hard to find, yes, its true, but nowadays when every phone has gps, it should not be a problem. And the staff is aware of this problem, they insisted on accompanying us the first time and were worried about us returning :) The candlelit dinner on our day of arrival was perfect!
What can i say? One of the best accommodation experiences I've ever had! That staff here at Riad Bab Lakhmiss are exceptionally friendly and helpful; Julien (owner) greets you with a smile and some very good advice for getting around and enjoying your time in Marrakech. He is happy to arrange anything for you and has great suggestions for excursions and other things to see and do around the city; when one excursion was a little to expensive for us to attend he spent his own time calling around for us to find a cheaper deal so we wouldn't have to miss out - and succeeded! Abdelkarim is a fantastic host and will happily attend to anything you need with great friendliness, also full of useful advice and answers to any questions you may have so don't hesitate to ask! His knowledge of Marrakech and of all Morocco is a valuable asset to the Riad. Sana makes a fantastic housekeeper and an even better cook with one of the most beautiful smiles we have ever seen; make sure you eat at least one dinner at the Riad as you wont be dissapointed; it was in fact better than any restaurant we ate at during our stay! Couldn't recommend this place any more, great location just outside the madness of the souks but easily walked to from the square - we always felt safe and never had any trouble getting to/from the Riad. Bab Lakhmiss was a huge factor contributing to the enjoyment that we had during our time in this amazing country and we couldn't thank them enough!
The staff was great! We loved how comfortable they made us feel. Julian helped us arranged a few activities and provided us which trips and tricks around the madina which made our trip pretty easy. The food at the riad is amazing :) I would defiantly stay here again! Thanks for a great morrorican experience!
Excellent value. Really friendly staff. A bit complex to find, so it's recommended to organise a taxi with the owner - 15€ to pick you up at the airport. Otherwise, google map is your friend.
We felt instantly welcomed with this Riad - so much so we returned 3 times during our visit and used it as our Marrakesh base. Julien and his hardworking sidekick Kerim (apologies!) were fantastic, showing us the best way to get round town without getting (too) lost, and cooked us two amazing meals (best beef out there). Breakfasts were brilliant with fresh Orange juice, pastries, pancakes and of course bread and copious amounts of mint tea, and the team were able to meet our annoying early starts without any issues. Also the most comfiest beds of our whole Morocco experience! Thanks again :)
The Riad is situated in the heart of the Medina, a short walk to all the sights yet still being quiet and peaceful in the evenings. Julien the host is fantastic and will care for all your needs and can organise everything for you from a hammam to a trip into the desert. He also gave great recommendations on shops and advice on haggling! The best tagine in Marrakesh, make sure you eat in the riad one night!
There's a wonderful ambiance in this riad - it's small and relaxed and cosy, with candles lighting it at night. The staff were so hospitable and accommodating and outlined all their tips and advice on arrival. Breakfast on the rood was particularly lovely too - start your day with home made pancakes and listen to the birds singing before you head out to the action of the medina!
As it's small, there are no extra facilities such as pool, spa etc. but everything you want is on your doorstep and it's a lovely haven to return to. It's a 20 min walk from Place Jemaa el Fna
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
