Stay here, great people and its a lovely setting
- Location is great, on a quiet street and just a few streets away from main market - Service is excellent. Mustafa and Hamen are great hosts and they will make sure you have a relaxing and comfortable stay. Speak French, Spanish and English. Pick you up from main square where taxi stop and walk with you anytime you need to avoid getting lost. Shirt ironed for free. - Beautiful decoration - Great Breakfast and on demand. Same for lunch and diner - you can arrange for a professional massage within room
- Everything was perfect but just a few things for improvement: - room on the ground floor could be a bit noisy in the morning as hotel guests are having breakfast a few meters away - airport transfer is 20 euros. Could be cheaper as normal rate is 7 euros - lunch/diner could be cheaper, asking 25 euros. The 3 meal course is actually just a few fried rolls and fruit besides the main course (which is fantastic). Normal rate for main courses on great restaurants is around 15-18 euros
An oasis of peace and rest in the caothic Marrakech
We had the most fantastic end of our honeymoon at Riad Ilyaka. The staff were exceptional and greeted us with a refreshing smoothie and homemade Moroccan pastries. We were the led to our outstandingly lavish room. We felt like we were staying in a palace with the four poster bed and gold sink! In order to make our honeymoon special they had also arranged a free bottle of wine and canapes for us to enjoy on the rooftop pagoda- amazing! The Riad is tucked away in the heart of the souks down a meandering passage but this makes it all the more charming. The staff will happily walk you to the main square or wherever you want to go so you don't get lost! How lovely! Would most definitely recommend this amazing Riad!
The staff are fantastic. Special shout to Nadia and Abdul but all the staff were wonderful, courteous and made you feel welcome and special although I am sure they have many guests. The Riad is beautiful. Every room is different. It is an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Breakfast is delicious. Home made yoghurt with orange or rose water, croissants, roti, home made 'muffins', omelettes and more. We booked the transfer with Riad Ilayka and the taxi was very comfortable. When he dropped us off, Abdul was there to meet us and walk us to the Riad. This is recommended as there are labyrinths of small turning alleys to negotiate but you will soon get used to. Would recommend.
The labyrinth of alleys to get to the Riad was daunting at first but Abdul met us and took us to the Medersa Ben Youssef the following morning and after that we got used to the alleys. We actually then appreciated how close we were to the Souks as we were so central and on the second day could find our way back to relax in the Riad when the sun was over 36 degrees in the afternoon.
The riad, furnishings and attention to detail are simply sublime. Very tastefully done and very original. Unique blend of Morrocan and Indian design with authentic feel to it. Very pleasant garden for breakfast and relaxing. Very well situated, however, without having to suffer the noise an bustle of the busy medina. Owner Nadia and staff very friendly and welcoming. Very close to souks and Jamaa el Fna.
Difficult to find. Get directions before going there, because it's not reachable by car
The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and accommodating... An absolute pleasure to deal with. The food was great! The view from the roof-top terrace is spectacular. The rooms are just... Wow!! Better than I expected. Overall, I could not recommend this place highly enough.
It's easy to get lost leaving from and returning to the Riad. The minor Marrakech streets somewhat resemble a maze.
Everyone was really friendly, kind and willing to take the time to show you the ropes. Breakfast was lovely, very well presented and delicious. The cool tub on the roof was perfect for relaxing in the evening. The riad is a calmkng oasis away from the hustle and bustle and noise of the main square.
A beautifully refurbished traditional Riad in the Medina area of Marrakech. The staff, facilities and surrounds were all excellent. A terrific authentic feel permeated our whole experience, providing memories to treasure.
Very friendly Hosts
Boutique medina with with traditional décor, friendly and helpful staff and food with cooking lesson. Arrived late to hotel and candlelit dinner on balcony provided. Escorted to restaurants in the Medina.
Stunning Riad, absolutely perfect.
The beautiful courtyard and rooftop terrace. The staff cannot do enough for you , always available for help and advice . Excellent breakfast .the rooms were clean and wonderfully Moroccan with ornate ceilings and good air conditioning and wi fi. We had a fabulous experience staying there .
5 mins from main square Jemaa el Fna Amazing service (courteous & helpful) Beautiful rooms & relaxing ambience Food is a really good mix, variety & locally sourced / produced
Having to leave!
Food outstanding, don't bother going out it is just as good as the best in Marrakech the service is second to none
British couple in Africa in july too hot !! can't blame the riad for that :)
Arriving to the Riad we were kindly welcomed with drinks and sweet treats. Our room looked just as pictured. The rooftop was great for relaxing and night and location was in the heart of the souks! We were minutes from the main square and all the restaurants we wanted to go to. It was especially fun to wind our way home through the labyrinth of alleys! Such a great start to our Marrakech experience! The staff was so accommodating and made calls for dinner reservations for us and set up special breakfasts for us on the middle patio private table. So romantic!
The ac was not quite as cold as it could have been, but given the extremely hot temperatures we were just fine!
Very good staff, fantastic accommodation, great location in the centre of the Medina Souk.
a most beautiful place, our room was fabulous with it's own private terrace. Staff were excellent in every way.
The service was first rate without being overly attentive. Ideal location. Peaceful. Good variable menu of high quality Moroccan & French cuisine
In room lighting a little to dim
Delicious breakfast every morning in the courtyard, beautiful bedroom with lovely local products in the bathroom. The upper terraces provided some peace and quiet along with great views. Cocktails and pastries on arrival were a nice touch. The staff were very helpful and friendly
The staff were very friendly, but there was some confusion caused due to language barriers. We weren't made aware that there wasn't a choice at dinner and one of us is vegetarian. Also, we had asked to do the cooking lesson but the gentleman mis understood and instead booked us for dinner.
rooms are gorgeous and have awesome decoration Staff is friendly, though only a few speak English Cooking lesson was fun and delicious
wifi very weak in rooms; only reliable in public areas
We would gladly return there tomorrow if we could. Definitely recommend. Definitely.
The Wi-Fi worked well in the public area but could never get a signal in our room. This seems to be a common problem throughout Morocco
Every thing in this hotel very good
The calmness after the hubbub of the city. Wonderful staff who gave excellent service and an insight into local life. Beautiful delicious breakfast. 10 out of 10.
