The Riad is a gorgeous place with a unique view over the city from the roof terrace. The staff is very friendly and helpful, walking with you through the Marrakech maze to get you going in the right direction.

Do not rely on having Wi Fi. It's intermittent, but you won't want it anyway... Make sure you arrange pickup when you arrive. Otherwise it will be near impossible for you to find!
Riad ILayka is an immaculate oasis of calm hidden away just a few alleys from Rue Moussaine, one of the main pedestrian routes through the glorious chaos of the medina from the main square. The staff are wonderfully helpful and seem to speak every language under the sun. The rooms are traditionally but tastefully decorated and very comfortable. A beautiful roof garden and mature trees in the courtyard mean songbirds are frequent visitors and make it a lovely spot to relax if you need a break from the sensory assault that is Marrakech. The breakfasts are delicious. Despite all rooms being full we barely heard or saw the other guests. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Perfect.

The staff here cannot do enough for you, always happy to help and offer suggestion, fabulous breakfast served daily and a lovely evening meal available on request! Beautiful rooms and a great roof top terrace to relax and watch the sun set! I would be very happy to stay here again and again!

The Raid was a beautiful peaceful setting away from the busy street of Medina. The staff were brilliant, they really did make our stay so much more enjoyable.

If you really want to experience Marrakech you could not ask for a better place to stay. Staff were excellent and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

These tiny things shouldn't stop you from staying here but just to be picky, each morning around 5:30 a staff member accessed a store cupboard outside our room. They weren't noisy but rustled plastic bags to (maybe) get cleaning equipment and this woke me up. I went back to sleep but it was a minor thing ... if that's all that's wrong - it's not much!!
From organising a taxi to collect us from the airport to the friendly welcome, beautifully decorated Islif room, tasty and varied breakfast and central location ... we loved it.

Not really a complaint but wifi somewhat fickle
Absolutely everything -discreet and gracious hostess and staff who looked after us like long lost family! Could not ask for a better location and the rooms were even better than photos. Stayed 5 nights but went too quickly.

The staff and service are exceptional , the breakfast was great and we had the best Moroccan food from the kitchen of Riad Ilyaka . Thank you Hanan , Nadia , Abdel and Halima !

Great location, fantastic breakfast and evening meal. Room was comfortable and clean. No noise

As the name suggests the feeling is to receive a sartorial service. Owners' and staff's attitude enable hosts to experience the best morrocan hospitality. The feeling is the same you can have in one of the best relaise chateaux.

a bit cold both in the room and in the common spaces
great position. cleanness. staff people

Situation deep in the souk. Not easily attainable. All by foot. Not for people with ambulatory problems.
All personnel were extremely welcoming and kind. Always ready to help.

I could spend a day writing about this place, it's far simpler to say it this way... this is a fantastic place, wonderful staff, great location. Such amazing personalised experience, you really know you are in a good place when you stay here. I strongly recommend the Isilf room, it has a private roof garden. A* venue from me, I don't really bother writing reviews generally, so that says a lot. One last thing I would say is that when arriving you should book the transport service they offer from the airport. Def worth it.

We appreciated the courtesy and kindness from both the owners and the staff alike who made sure we were comfortable and well looked after at all times. Nothing was too difficult and always carried out with a smile! The surroundings and comfort were excellent and tastefully designed.

Stay here, great people and its a lovely setting

- 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
- 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

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!
