Score from 405 reviews Excellent
The receptionists, Abdellatif and Salema were so friendly and I enjoyed talking with them a lot. They made me feel at home away from home!
All the staff members at Riad Johonboy were very cheerful and friendly. Their hospitality made my stay very pleasant and comfortable. Especially, Abdellatif was always there to meet my needs. I would love to stay there again in my next visit in Marrakech.
- overall set-up (quite rooms, low number of rooms) - cleanliness of the room which was then cleaned every other day - excellent staff that went well beyond its responsibilities to make our stay as easy as possible, they were really helpful!!!!
- entrance hard to find (when you enter street Rue Bab Doukala at the small local market take the first turn left into a very narrow street and than take another turn left - it is the last doors just before the street ends)
Mustapha from the reception is so helpful and friendly
When you visit Marrakech, there's just one place tot stay...this riad! Beautiful rooms and the most lovely people of the world running it. Thank you so much for your kindness!l
Nothing to complain about, really great!
Decor is nice, quiet location, staff are friendly, good price for value, close to new town and Bab Dakola; 20 min walk to the square; very clean; internet works
A little hard to find if it weren't for the very useful review on booking.com; breakfast is not free (3 EUR), did not have a chance to try
Staff: the reviews appeared to be true...such nice people, especially the lady who cleaned the rooms during the day and the tall guy who's there in the evenings. Very helpful and attentive. The lady even put all of our clothers (that we left on the floor, on chairs etc) in the cupboard, etc. Cleanliness: perfect. Value for money: perfect. Location: exactly next to the Medina walls so Gueliz is very easily reached, as is the medina of course.
Bed was too hard which was not very comfortable. And, just like everyone else says: hard to find. But: as no-one posts a description on HOW to reach it then: Walk from the bus station through Bab Doukkala in the direction of Rue Doukkala (covered street leading into the medina). JUST before the roofs begin there is a small alley on the left (north-eastwards). Take this alley, on the end, go left, go to the end of this alley and on your right is Riad Johonboy. When we were there, a lady selling bread used to sit in front of the alley all the time.
very nice hospitality, very central between Medina and New town, quiet, the attention of the hosts for all the small details which was very lovely
Our 3 nights stay at Riad Johonboy was absolutely wonderful. It is very close to Bab Doukkala, walk straight from the gate towards the market turn left on the first laneway then left again, the last house on right side. If you can't find it, just call Mustapha and he will send his staff immediately to pick you up. Once you know the location, it is so easy to find your way back. The room is very quiet, clean, the beds are comfortable and the rooftop terrace is beautiful. Mustapha and Abdul were extremely pleasant, helpful, friendly and always with a smile. We love this small beautiful raid and we will definitely stay here again. The riad is in an excellent location, very quiet, superb service and great value for the money, highly recommended.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff, felt like home from from. Great comfy bed and the place was very clean. Would highly recommend staying here.
It would have been hard to find if we didn't have a taxi driver.
Nice , clean, small riad. Mustapha is wonderful, so all the staff wery helpful, and nice. We loved it !
Very nice staff, located in a less touristic part of the Medina, good price and nice terrace with excellent breakfast
Location, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast (you need to book).
Our experience at Riad Johonboy was absolutely amazing. Our flight to Marrakech had been delayed by an hour, and so we didn't reach Marrakech until 1am, however, upon our arrival, we were still greeted at the airport with a very welcoming smile and gracious attitude that made us feel welcome and at ease instantly, despite the stress that we endured because of the delay. Side note- the Riad is quite hard to find the first time, so I strongly recommend you organise airport transportation with the Riad- it's only a few euro extra than a taxi but you will definitely be taken to the right place. Upon our arrival (at 2am~) we were very warmly greeted and made to feel at home. Throughout our stay at Riad Johonboy, our needs were immediately attended to with the best service that I have ever received. I can go on and on about the fantastic customer service that the staff provide, but you will find out yourself once you book here. Take advantage of the free, delicious mint tea that they provide, the wifi is a bit sketchy on the top floor but it is ideal for privacy and quiet (plus it has it's own separate lounge area, which is great). Overall, 10/10 experience.
The location is about a 15-20 minute walk to the main square, where you want to go. But this Riad is worth the walk, and there is nothing wrong with a bit of exercise after all the food you will be eating in the main square :)
Staff very polite and useful, strategic location into the medina, but near enough to see nouvelle ville and restaurant. Efficient and convenient transfer from airport (suggested because not very easy to find riad). High quality/price ratio!
Koutobia room is not very discreet because near to reception. Other rooms are ok.
The riad is near the gates of medina. It is about 20 min walk to the main square. The manager Mustafa is very helpful, he booked our taxi, day trip, the tickets to Essaouira and even showed us how to get to the square. All staff is very friendly and helpful as well. We enjoyed having our breakfast in the terrace.
Incredibly hospitabil staff, location and we feel really at our home. Dont't miss this riad! I will never forget this experience.
Excellent from day one! Mustapha was extremely friendly and helpful and all the staff was fantastic! We felt at home.The roof terrace is an amazing quiet spot to relax away from the noisy streets... I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone going to Marrakech.
nice view, very good value for money
It's not easy for finding the Riad
Stuff was super helpful and friendly in any occasion and the location of the riad is -once that you have found it which is not too diffocult if you just ask somebody at the bab- simply perfect. Right at the edge of the Medina but very quiet at night. Especially the room upstairs is just beautiful and very comfortable! Also the roof terrace has an excellent view! Thank you so much for your help and friendliness Mustapha and the rest of the stuff, you can really feel at home in this nice little riad!
Very hepful staff. Great location. Beautiful terrace. The best mint tea in town Good breakfast.
The staff were very helpful and friendly!!! Thank you so much mustafah and Abdul and Z for a truly wonderful stay. Highly recommended A++++++
An excellent Riad in the old city. Staff very accommodation and helpful even when we just wanted advice. Mustapher and staff were very accommodating, extremely helpful when we were trying to find our way around. I would definately stay here again we loved it so much we have already started to plan our next visit. An amazing roof terrace to have breakfast on. Rooms are clean, the whole atmosphere was totally amazing. I would definately recommend This Riad as one of the best in Marrekesh
