    Very friendly staff, absolutely customer oriented and did everything to meet our wishes and expectations. In spite of their own overload helped to organize a small party celebration Wifi everywhere in the hotel Every room has its own style and decoration Breakfast is served till 11 and even when we were completely late for it, it was served without any problem even later First time difficult to find the location in the labyrinth but actually very convenient, in the very heart of medina, close to the central square and all major sights

    A bit stuffy in the rooms Low sound absorption, in the evening especially Breakfast is served and organised in a very home and cosy atmosphere, but the variety is quite modest

    It was a pleasure to stay at Oumaima - it was a little place of heaven and tranquil in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The welcome and hospitality received was very warm, the breakfast was great and the small pool was a stark but pleasant change to the norm of hotel pools. I would very much recommend this hotel to others - being surrounded by lime and olive trees on the terrace overlooking the Medina is all that I could have asked for.

    I would not say that I didn't like this feature; more that I was uncomfortable and hesitant in the beginning that the rooms did not have locks on them. They were the kind that could support a large padlock but that would mean that the maid could not access the room to clean whilst we were out (nor did we have a large padlock). After a day or two we became more comfortable and accepted this fact.

    It was one of the best thing during my stay in Marrakech. You really feel like you are in a fairytale. The lady was so good to reserve for us a hammam. They also offer great excursions. We went to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. The water in the pool was warm like the tea they serve you when you arrive. Amazing!

    I reserved one room, but when I arrived they gave me another one, because the one I reserved was in reconstruction. The one they gave me was cheaper and also nice, but the dissapointment was still big. I prefer to be informed in advance and I wouldn't mind.

    Well placed in the medina and nice and quiet.An oasis away from the hustle and bustle.Staff were excellent.

    Beer,water and wine prices were a tad excessive.3 euros for a 250ml can of beer for example.

    The place was great - traditional and peaceful - very nice reception by hosts - decor was interesting and comfortable at thge same time - was hard to believe the place was in the middle of such activity. Lots to see relatively near by.

    (1) Location - one can hardly tell the streets from the alley in the medina - no signs on streets rendering maps pretty useless - maps provided not adequate to getting around, putting one at the mercy of street folk to guide you and who may or may not know where you are going. In time one can figure it out, but I would not recommend this place for a short term stay.

    Excellent Staff and very good service.

    Area and access is not good. This is not clear when u book. Its right in the heart of the madina and u need to go thru several poorly lit and not very clean alley ways. It can be quite daunting for some people so be careful if you want to book here. You could easily get lost and people may not guide you quite clearly back to the Riad. The Riad itself is comfortable except that the bathroom of some of the rooms is "open" . So for us one of us had to leave the room ... not very convenient. All they needed to do was put a ceiling and a door to the washrooms. Another thing to be really wary off in this Riad is payment by cc. They charge a 3 %fee; not mentioned on Booking .com. Also their cc machine was broke; I suspect its this way always and they want you to pay in cash. I had to withdraw cash to pay my bill( we moved out early because of the location and kids getting bored). Everyone else at the time were also forced to pay cash.

    Beautiful riad, very traditional and in a good spot, about a 15mins walk away from the hustle and bustle of the square.

    Make sure you note where it is, it's easy to get lost. Put a pin on a map app as google maps suggests it's much further out according to the address on the website! Photograph your way to the square as a guide too!

    Stay at the hotel was very nice and relaxing, staff also delightful, very exotic decor of the hotel, in typical Moroccan style. You could hide from the noisy Marrakesh rest. The hotel is located close to the mosque so wake up at 5 am guaranteed, but it just has its own charm. Initially the hotel and figuring out the streets of Marrakech seemed frightening, after two days, while it turns out very addictive and giving real atmosphere of this magical city. Very highly recommended!

    Welcoming staff, we were provided with mint tea and nibbles on arrival. Very beautiful riad and very large bedroom (Lalla Hasna) which had a beautiful interior and it was nice that it had a small sitting area inside the room. Good wifi access.

    The location - difficult to find, and potentially unsafe at night as there are small, unlit streets where somebody could be lurking around the corner. I wouldn't recommend this riad for women staying on their own. We didn't like that the bedroom door didn't have a lock; the door just had a bolt on the outside (all the rooms are like this I believe), so another guest could have easily gone inside our room whilst we were out, which made us feel uneasy at leaving valuables in the room. Also didn't like the fact that the toilet didn't have a door! Unless you are very close to the person sharing with I wouldn't recommend staying here because they will be able to see you on the toilet from the bed! Left me slightly self conscious even though I was with my husband.

    It's a nice little riad. Beautifully arranged.Typical Moroccan style. Staff is quite discrete but always there when you need them.Very kind and helpful. You can smoke shisha. It's quite calm and relaxing.In the evening they put candles and lights on,it's very charming. I liked the tea and the cookies,and the fact that breakfast consists of mostly home-made food. Good place for couples.You can have breakfast at the terrace if it's sunny. Un petit riad charmant.L'accueil très sympa.Un très joli site.

    Not much. I wouldn't recommend the room on the ground floor Lalla Latifa, cause you hear the noise from the hall way.(anyways it's not one of those noisy places). We were woken up by a couple having early breakfast at 7.30.They were just chatting by still the noise woke us up.We changed it for another room. I think location can be tricky to find especially on the 1st day.But on the other hand lots of riads are situated in little hard-to-find streets.

    The Riad is located close to the Souks and the main square. It was clean and comfortable.

    Staff do not speak English which makes it a bit difficult at times. Some of the staff didnt appear very friendly but that could have been the language barrier. Food and spa are incredibly expensive. The Riad offered to arrange a taxi for us from the airport to the Riad which is necessary as it is so hard to find but again extremely expensive. We arranged our own taxi on the way back and paid 50 dirham each instead of 170 dirham! Overall I would not recommend it as I feel it is missing a certain charm that other Riads have.

    We really enjoyed our stay in Riad Oumaima! The staff is very nice and always available to answer your questions. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and the breakfast on the rooftop is really nice! The Riad is located in a quiet street at 10 minutes walking from the Place Jemaa el Fna, and is surrunded by nice restaurants such as "Zouk Café", "La terrasse des Epices", "Le Jardin" etc... We really appreciated our holidays and highly recommend Riad Oumaima for your next holidays! We also recommend a trip to the Cascades D'Ouzoud organized by the Riad, it is really nice and not too touristic during winter!!

    If you go there during the winter time, take with you a warm jumper for the evening, it is quite cold when you arrive in your room (and in restaurants too!). The riad is hard to find the first time, check the location before arriving there and don't be worry of entering a very narrow street, the riad is there. If you are lost, just ask people in the street, they will explain you. If they bring you there, you'll have to give them money... The prices are very european in the Riad, don't book a taxi with them, you'll pay 20 euros while you can get one very easily in the street and much cheaper. The same for the Riad's restaurant, the prices are expensive.

    A paradise in the middle of the Medina, few steps distant to the Suk. Staff discrete, kind and helpfull... too many adjectives? no not enought :-) The french owners gave a warm welcome during breakfast, telling us the story of the Riad, they were very friendly. Special mention to the young night porter, thank you! It was a lovely stay in a charming and elegant typical Riad

    Beautiful Riad, perfect location in the medina, near Jemaa-el-fna and the Souks, very nice straff. I would very much recomend it - excellent value for money!

    A bit cold in the winter, breakfast a bit booring (coffee, orange juice and buns), if your room is on the gound floor you can hear everything going on outside - but this wasn't a big problem for us though. If you don't like the marrocan costume of no bathroom door, make sure to book the room we stayed in (it was a beige/red colour) - it is the only one with a door!

    Staff speaks fluent french. Rooms are very clean.

    We stayed two nights - one night in the main floor room which was horrible and one in the top upstairs room which was great. The mainfloor room is practically a hostel room - everyone can hear you and you can hear everyone. It also has no heat and gets very uncomfortably cold - both my husband and I caught a nasty cold that night for the first time in our month long travel. They also overcharged us for the night in the lower room which I wish I had caught before leaving but there was nothing I could do thereafter. Staff does not speak English, but speak fluent french.

    Nice interior and friendly staff that were suppose to keep you safe.

    Located in a small alley. Difficult to find without a "guide" that basically forced himself upon you and after wanted a huge reward for his friendliness. Bring a padlock if you want to lock your door.

    The riad was a fabulous place to stay on our short break to Marrakech, It was clean, with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay, breakfast was simple but a great start to the day, and the staff were so friendly and helpful.

    The first time finding the riad is tricky, so utilise the help given to you! We organised an airport transfer from the riad, and they had someone waiting to help us on foot through the medina. Ask a staff member for a map with directions to Djemaa al Fna. After that, finding the riad is really easy.
