Excellent location, near the square and souks, we were picked up from the airport and met with a very warm welcome from the staff. We felt very well looked after throughout our stay, the breakfasts on the roof terrace were delicious and we had one of the best evening meals of our holiday there too.

For relaxed sleeping we need separate bedding but then it gets a bit congested with quite heavy duvets. With the linnen alone not being warm enough towards morning I would have prefered wool blankets or lighter duvets but - I didn't ask ;-( Possibly they would have just brought the desired item ;-)
Staff and owner are very friendly and speak all languages ;-) Carefully decorated, clean, varied breakfast and excellent copious dinner on order at the well kept roof terrace with a view on the trees of the adjacent palace. Quiet in a good localisation. To avoid hassle in finding the riad you better call them for fetching you in the nearby square or already at the airport. Early transport to the Airport was organized perfectly even with a early breakfast.

The riad is not easy to find. Once you have found it, you get super maps with indicated "routes" for walking there through the small alleys, perhaps these maps could be sent in advance ...
Hussein gave us a wonderful map and recommended places to see in the Medina. The roof terasse is splendid for breakfast and sitting in the evening.You can smell the plants of Bahia Palace Garden which is just behind.The Riad is a peaceful place in the hurry of the Medina.

The staff wanted us to be part of the family.

the location is a bit difficult the first time. They could put TV in the room.
The decoration, house construction, furniture, staff are helpful, polite and friendly at all times. They explain everything and accompany you if you need it. Very professional receptionists. Thanks for the wonderful experience in Marrakech. I hope to return !!

March 12, 2015
We like everything!!! 1- The staff was amazing very friendly, helpful, full of attention, kind and with always a beautiful welcome smile on their face ! -2 the food from the riad prepared by Latifa is excelent!!! The breakfast everyday is renew but always really close to what you can find in a morrocan familly house :) 3- the location is perfect 10 min to the famous place jamaa efna but 1-2 min of the basic shop like patiserie, epicery, carpet , furniture, spice.... And from the terrace you will see the garden of palais bahia!about the terrace if you want a quick nap or peace place to read a book it s the place to go in !!! PS: I advice anyone to take the service aeroport hotel transfere it s so far more easy the first time to have the driver and one staff menber coming to show you the way :) 4- The riad and their room are very clean everyday when you go out of ur room it s big pleasure to come back and find your room as on the picture !!! For this full reason I highly recommande the riad Swaka and BIIIG THANKS TO YOU GUYS FOR THIS SUBLIME HOLLIDAYS XXXX

Everything was perfect.
Excellent location, wonderful ambience, very, very clean. It looks much better than on the pictures. The stuff is great, especially Felix, taxi driver with his recommendations and tips. All in all, if we go back to Marrakech, we will stay in this hotel Riad Swaka again. Nani Ladisan

This one was not the best of our choice although followed by good customer reviews. Even if you book room in this Riad you can end up with one of three other Riads run by these same family (Subject of room availability), as it happened to other quests we had met. Two families were moved to the other Riad in their midstay. We have seen just two and every Riad has different themes (one modern and one traditional). There is no option to book a specific room online leaving an open window to allocate you whatever is free not necessary suitable for the size of your company or if you are travelling as a group you may be allocated in different locations of Medina. To run four Riads is a lot of work but it also means that there are lot of loose ends and upset quests. The Riad has definitely seen better times. It is cryng for bathrooms update, new towels (these were just discousting and I laughed they represented "50 Shades of grey" :)) with yellow "ish" and brown "ish" spots. The good scrub around would be recommended either. One can compromise the dirt being daily add on to the country style but we just moved from spotless, bright Riad with outstanding servise in Essaouira. Riad Swaka was a bit of shock. For the first two nights we were given a coffin of 2meters by 5.5meters for two adults with two children. There was no room to put our luggage - two suitcases and two hand luggage. Coffin was located on the ground floor consisting yellow glazed two narrow windows and door facing main hall area. Exit was straight to path connecting kitchen with dining area located on terrace. Walls were painted dark grey-purple colour. Shower room was under stairs. It has light making buzzling annoying sound. There was no room for bedside tables next to our 1.5 person (called double) bed so night lights were placed in designed wall niches. One of those didn't work.

Perhaps a little difficult to find a wall sign would help
A brilliant place to relax. More chilled and comfortable (this is important in Marrakech you need to chill ) than stylish although it has superb charm. Ideally situated for shopping and sightseeing Lovely team of staff Recommend it

Toilet paper has to be disposed in the basket separately, one early breakfast was not prepared due to the illness of the only staff, Jacuzzi has been broken, complicated payment process - Booking.com somehow charged less on the card than it is supposed to be & had to pay the additional balance with cash to match the advertised price.
Relaxed, quiet, located in old town, 10 min walk to Jamaa el Fna, next to the palace, comfortable bed, breakfast included, good coffee, additional payment we made to Riad was refunded through the payment to the taxi driver we hired. Friendly staff

Very nice boutique riad, with great staff
August 26, 2014
The only issue we had was the taxi transfer, but this was soon sorted and all was well.
The staff were lovely. The Riad was charming and having breakfast on the roof top terrace was wonderful. Slept really well and the position of the Riad meant that it was very quiet. I was very touched that when I said about being coeliac, even with the language barrier, they produced foods suitable just for me. Thank you - we had a wonderful few days and hope to return one day soon.

WiFi a little hit and miss.....
Family run riad, which treated us very well. Easy walk to the main square and on the doorstep of some of the other good visitor attractions.
June 10, 2014
Breakfast was very yummy. Gorgeous room. Beautiful roof top. Very quiet yet just a 5 minutes walk to Place el Fna. Super friendly staff.
June 9, 2014
Breakfast at the roof top was amazing and very good quality. Very quiet all the time. Beautiful setup with an eye to detail throughout the entire Riad Would definitely come again

Owner very friendly and helpfull, helped us to found another very nice place to stay, lovely mint tea and cookies :), good internet conection. Definietly to recomend. Owners dont speak good english but we were still ok to comunicate. When going to Morocco you can't expect everyone to speak english,
March 11, 2014
dirty jacuzzi on rooftop. i travelled in march and it was already hot. A pool wouldn't have been bad :-)
they welcomed me with a smile and a warm mint tea. for like half an hour they explained me where to go and what to do in Marrakech. My room was great. So was the rooftop lounge. It's a oasis of peace in a very noisy and hectic city.
