Slightly difficult to find, but this could be said of most in Marrakech.
Beautiful riad and a really nice and helpful owner.
Julian, the owner, was the most accommodating and helpful person we've encountered during our travels in Morocco. The facilities were wonderful: well lit, airy, clean, personable, and well decorated; but it was his role that made/saved our time in Marrakech. Before we arrived he was responsive in answering our emails about our stay and upon request, personally bought us overnight bus tickets in advance and for no fee since they can only be purchased in-country. When rain up north caused an unexpected shift in our itinerary, Julian upgraded another guest so we could keep our room for an additional night. He also had good recommendations for places to eat and helped set us up with a car service for a day hike out to the Atlas mountains. Although he is relatively young, he understands what it takes to keep guests happy and comfortable, and while he is obviously busy managing, he also takes the time to be personable.
I have no complain.
Gorgeous property and a gorgeous owner. The rooms look super. Everyone was nice and welcoming!
One small thing. Would have preferred separate breakfast table rather than communal one. Also fresh fruit would be an added bonus
Great location. Close to everything but in quiet backstreet & lovely secluded roof terrace. Julien & his staff extremely helpful & friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.Lovely place to relax after day shopping. We will go back & stay there again.
Conveniently located, with a very friendly and helpful staff, I really have nothing but positive things to say about Riad El Youssoufi. Highly recommended!
Limited facilities when raining, take a good book and curl up in the Riad.
Stylishly appointed, great attention to detail, very friendly and helpful staff, a real feeling of Morocco. The location was perfect. The recommendations for resturants and points of interest were spot on. Thank you Julien
The riad is beautiful and very peaceful. It is just on the edge of the souk, about 10 minutes walk from the main square but it felt very safe. Julien and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was lovely and everything was very clean and beautifully decorated. A very pleasant experience
I felt completely safe and welcome at Riad El Youssoufi. It was so nice to have a peaceful place to come "home" to every night. The Riad is in a great location, as it is walking distance to the number one ranked spa in Marrakesh as well as a number of highly ranked restaurants. I enjoyed the proximity to the spa, restaurants, and souks very much, as well as the quietness of the property at night. The property has terrific wireless internet, which is important to me. Also, Julien is really a pleasure to talk to and he makes you feel right at home. The pancakes for breakfast are a real treat as well. I just wish I could have stayed longer!
Nothing really. We just didn't know that in riads in general it's very quiet and you can hear everything, so travelling with small baby to such place may be stressing for you and disturbing for other guests.
It was our first two nights in Morroco that we spent in Riad el Yousuffi and they were the best nights we spend during our stay: - Possibility of pick up from the airport - Fantastic dinner we had on arrival (one of the best dinners we had in Morocco) - Julien and his staff - they were utterly, utterly amazing. Giving us hints and taking care that our stay was perfect at any time - Huge breakfast, that was different every day - Location, location, location - 10 min walk from Jemaa - Riad itself - beautifully restored with attention to details
I love everything about this Riad:room, food, location.
The warm welcome of Julien and his staff made us feel at home in Marrakech. Beautiful Riad with beautiful rooms, very nice breakfast and diner, Julien is a perfect guide for a once in a lifetime experience of Marrakech.
All of it. Just perfect.
Julien the Host is a nice guy. He's available 24/7 in case you need him. The Riad has a nice atmosphere and nakes you feel like home and always welcome
Nothing at all.
The whole experience. Friendliness, knowledge, and personal helpfulness of Julien. Superb facilities at the Riad which included our booked meal on our first night. Great location right on the edge of the souks, no more than 5 minutes walk from the square. Felt very safe area to be in. Spent 5 nights there in all and would not hesitate to recommend to others. A very enjoyable experience.
Everything is very good at El Youssufi: great staff (thank you Julien), clean, beautiful, comfortable, good breakfast, free wifi working everywhere. Just a bit difficult to be found, but it's inside the Medina, so "it's part of the game".
The communal large dining table wasn't to our liking, we would have preferred to be able to sit and breakfast in private at a smaller table. Fortunately (for us) guests tended to breakfast at different times, so finding a quieter time slot was mostly successful. Others of course might have an opposite view on this.
This Riad was very comfortable, warm and cosy, a home away from home, we loved it! Julien, the host, was wonderful, as was his staff. Excellent location, couldn't be better, an easy walking distance to just about everywhere. So glad we picked just this one from so many others available in the Medina at the time of booking. We realised our luck once there, absolutely wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else, and wouldn't hesitate a moment to go back again! I advise to ask Julien for anything you feel you may want/need, he'll do his best to oblige. Dinners were delicious and breakfast plentiful. Our breakfast highlights were their daily freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade yoghurt, not to forget plenty of coffee.
From the pre-arranged airport pick up which due to luggage mix up made us arrive at almost midnight to an awake and helpful owner Julian, to an elegant almost magical setting and delicious elegant breakfast- this may be the best place to stay in Marrakech! Julian the owner is so warm, present, attentive and helpful I told him he may be the best HOST EVER, in the history of hosts. There- I said it, Stay here !
This was a real hidden gem in a bustling city. Despite all the noise and chaos in the city, there is just pure tranquility once you are in the riad. The style was a mixture of Arab and European tastes and it was absolutely beautiful.
Very friendly and hospitable staff that made us feel like home, Julien was very friendly, ready to answer all our questions and give suggestions. Beautiful Riad, very nice ambience, one of our best stays in Morocco. Good location
The breakfast was a bit boring with a lot of jam.
Perfect location in Medinan.The rooms are very cozy and it feels that one is in a Moroccan home
Very friendly owner and staff always happy go help. Quiet, cool, luxury spacd to relax from the busy city. Great food!
This is an exceptionally clean riad and well-designed. I loved the attention to detail. All meals were fantastic. Julien is extremely helpful and can arrange day trips and transfers for you. Everything was wonderful!
Everything about this Riad was perfect,I cannot recommend it enough. A beautiful building with 5 individual and unique rooms - we stayed in the 'Amarillo Room'. The was a roof terrace and courtyard garden where breakfast was served - breakfast was great and they also offer dinner which we tried on the first night and was amount the best meals we ate during out trip. The staff were brilliant, the owner Julien very friendly and could not do enough for you We hope to be back in the future
Incredibly friendly and multi lingual host and staff. Very clean, neat and tidy well presented rooms and courtyard. Great location in the medina and with a divine restaurant! Top marks - great value - not 1 fault. Wish we could have stayed longer
The staff are so attentive. The Riad is very tranquil and very traditional. I would not hesitate to recommend this place as the quality is excellent.
