The staff is the greatest asset of this Riad. They come around in many occasions to find out how were we doing with the honest intention to cater for any small need they could identify. Decoration is charming and is so clean that even my exigent grandmother complimented on that. We went in winter and with the extra heater they made available we felt the room was warm.
I have learned a lot about riad accommodation in winter and Marrakesh on this first trip. First about location, I have learned that the district above "la place" up to the big mosque and Koranic school is an intricate network shopping bazars. We come for a long stay, so for us no need to live "in" the bazar, as it can be overwhelming and slow you down to be charmed to buy every day on your way in and out home. We have managed our taxi rides - both inside the Medina and out to the new town - for 20 dinars/2 euro, just state your price with confidence. Generally speaking about riads I now understand that patio rooms are noisy by definition as the patio is in some ways the heart of the house. Anything above seems ideal as far as breakfast is not served on the terrace in winter. Riads tend not to have external windows and since patio windows are facing common areas we found that closed windows was required for privacy. In winter we have probably expend more time at the riad that we would have done in summer and the light is poorer this time of the year, as a result the patio rooms in general tend to be dark and slightly humid. As vegetarian I found that the cooked choice was limited to veg tagine in touristic places. Some local places offer lentils and butter beans. You will find 2/3 veg salads in most establishments, had few and didn't fall sick. I have mostly relied on breads, yogurts and fruits, which just for few days was ok.
I have stayed in hotels all over the world and The Riad Princesse is by far in my top three favorite places of all time. The staff was absolutely incredible and so kind. You truly felt you were walking into a home where you were taken care of and any requests or questions were answered gladly! We will be back to Marrakesh just so we can stay at the Riad!
I have no negative feedback at all!
Abdel, Simo and Joseph were by far the best of the Riad. They were very kind from breakfast till the night. Location is very good, just 5 minites from the main Place, and in the heart of the old Medina.
Staff was very helpfull: reserving dinners, airport pickups, massages, etc. Riad was nice and the best breakfast in our one week trip.
The riad name is not written in the door outside (or pretty much anywhere else either) so for the few first hours we doubted if we were really in the right place.
The staff is really great, they make you feel like at home. Abdel is a great person! The breakfast was incredible, you can eat it wherever you want and such a different thing to eat. I recomended this riad!
The food was amazing the best in Morocco. I went to bed early just so I can wake up to get the breakfast so much Variety fresh food and fruit. The greetings were lovely in the morning and when we got back. they helped us with our schedules basically everything we needed we was helped with.
It was too good there was nothing to dislike.
The hosts were terrific and very helpful. The Riad is extremely comfortable and all of our needs were met and exceeded. It was a perfect introduction to our first visit to Morocco. We would recommend the Riad to anyone wanting a value for money great stay in Marrakesh.
It was all great no complaints and no improvements needed!
Position, position, position is perfect for Jamma el fna. A added bonus is the peaceful and quiet position.
The 'full spa treatment' was not worth the 95eur as the treatments weren't what you would expect at that price. I also smelt suspiciously of cooking oil rather than the orange blossom argan oil that was promised. I would recommend staying here, but don't book any spa treatments.
Staff were really friendly, very accommodating and helped with planning our days. The rooms were lovely and they always made great mint tea when we came in :) They also explained some landmarks so we would not get lost coming back.
Despite the great directions, it was still quite hard to find. Maybe have some sign posts down the correct alley way?
We stayed at the Riad for 3 nights with friends and what a memorable time we had. The Riad was beautiful and the food was delicious, definitely the best we ate in Marrakech. What really made the stay special though, were the staff, they were outstanding. Youseff, Simon and gang made us feel like old friends. They were incredibly accommodating, nothing was to much trouble for them. They were also informative, friendly and fun. We spent a wonderful night dressed in traditional clothes, being entertained by them with music, stories and some great dance moves. We had a fantastic few days. Thank you, you are all stars!
The staff at the riad were so welcoming, helpful and informative. In addition, they went beyond what you would expect, in that they treated us like friends and had lovely humour and some great dance moves!!! The rooms were very nice and the breakfasts fantastic - best eggs ever!
A full length mirror in the room would have been nice - not much to complain about!
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who genuinely wanted to give you a good time
Lovely friendly staff Good location you can walk easily to any attraction within the city walls
- location is very central (down some long winding alleyways but you quickly get used to it!) - team are really helpful and friendly - I really enjoyed the breakfast - ate there one evening and the food was good - Wifi worked telly well for me, even on the roof terrace
Nothing particularly noteworthy
Nothing At this hotel is worth it- terrible service. DO NOT stay here
-The Riad is poorly located far into the medina in several winding alleyway -The staff did a terrible job in welcoming us and making us feel at home -There was barely any checking in on how we were doing or how they could help us throughout our stay, which was done by all the the other Riads we stayed at -The room was very stuffy. It appeared as though they sprayed an air freshened prior to our arrival to try to cover this old musty smell but the scent provoked terrible allergies -The silverware used to serve meals was old and not clean -There were ants on the floor of the room, another sign of old building and poor maintenance In summary, do NOT stay here. There are plenty of other riads in the city that offer way more for your money, with better location, and are cleaner with friendlier staff. Do not waste your money here
Great venue close to the souks and main square but completely quiet, lovely staff, lovely decor, the best food we had in Morocco was cooked here. The staff arranged everything for us like airport transfer and showing us options for making the most of our time here. Thank you.
Room too much small, as well the medina street
The staff were wonderful, friendly and courteous - they made us feel like we had become part of their family. The riad surroundings and furniture were beautiful and the Moroccan ambience just made it an exotic and atmospheric experience,
Usually, when you say that a hotel has a friendly staff, this means that they will say hi or give you a smile. This is so much more, you feel like you are family while staying at Princesse du Desert. Great food, great atmosphere, very nice rooms, overall great experience.
The care taken of us and the brilliant hospitality.
Slight problem with pick up taxi arranged by hotel.
