Location ideal and very helpful staff friendly and efficient! Beds were extremely comfortable' breakfast was delicious!
We stayed in three riads. This was by far the best and if I ever return to Marrakech I would definitely stay in this one again.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully designed Riad.
Make sure you arrange to be taken to the Riad as it's very hard to find first time round.
Clean crisp sheets - comfy beds and excellent location. Staff were so friendly . Definitely going back!
Nelly and the team were all lovely, extremely welcoming and helpful. They did all they possibly could to make our stay enjoyable. We stayed in the Suite Sma, which was nice and spacious. The bed was very comfy and the big bath was a nice touch. The riad was really lovely and quiet. Just what we needed after a whole day in the busy medina. Breakfast was delicious. We also strongly recommend the dinner. After having a few not so great veggie meals in town, the home made veggie tajine was to-die-for. It's also worth taking the airport transfer offered by the riad. I don't think we would have found it without it. All in all, we've had a really great stay. We'll happily stay there again and we'll definitely recommend it to friends.
Very helpful owner. Extremely nice and qualified staff. One feels part of the family.
Beautiful building and nice room (we were in the Sma suite) nice staff (we met Nelly just once cause she was sick during our stay), good breakfast, 5min walking from Jemaa el Fna. They arrange us the transfer to the Casablanca's airport.
As other guest said, there is no door between the bedroom and the toilet. Wifi only works on the ground floor. We had some unpleasant meetings when we came back at night (by night i mean 8pm). First night, a junkie followed us asking for money, the second night three guys screamed at us calling me "pute" many times (we're a young couple and my boyfriend is a boxer 1.90tall, not inspiring for street fight) We thought there was a sort of "pusher's corner" that we disturbed walking by. Now, we had never been in danger (as in all the city center, it's very safe) but we were little worried coming back at night, cause the riad is in a very little and dark alley, desert, except for those guys. Anyway, no other guest noticed it, maybe we were just unlucky.
Our room was almost in the lobby and had a glass door (had curtains). Whoever is in the lobby can hear every word you say.
Big welcome and really quiet in the middle of a bustling city. Nothing is too difficult for Nelly and her staff who arrange everything for you.
I was lucky to book the Sma suite and it was perfect. Upon arrival you were greeted with tea and cookies, and given a map with guidance around Marrakech. The owner was engaging and willing to help in any way. It was great to have the transport to the airport taken care of with little cost. Once you found the riad, it was convenient to get around around the medina.
Since the suite had a huge tub, the shower was just so-so. It would be helpful to have the front entrance better identifed as Riad Vanilla Smaa.
Fantastic location, beautifully appointed, amazing food, staff and hamman. Couldn't fault a single thing. Our group stayed in 4 of the 6 rooms available and all were beautiful. Nelly and her staff were all brilliant, friendly and extremely helpful.
The staff were fabulous, friendly, generous and nothing was too much trouble. The riad was clean, cool and elegant. Loved the crisp white cotton sheets and very comfortable beds and pillows. A very relaxing refuge from the mad Medina.
The bedroom and bathroom are open plan which might not suit everyone.
Nelly was super accommodating and helped ensure our trip ran completely smoothly from organizing airport pickup to also speaking with our next transfer asking if he could take us to Jardin Marjorelle on our way to our next Riad. It was our first time in Marrakech and being two girls we wanted to make sure we felt safe and this Riad was a complete haven. Felt so peaceful and safe there in the bustle of Marrakech. Nelly also organized a tour for us with our own guide which was the best money spent because we had limited time there. The best bit about the Riad is it's walking distance to the main square which make it easy to navigate anywhere, considering Marrakech is a complete maze. Would highly recommend, Nelly and her team are all lovely and incredibly helpful
Everything! Nelly and her wonderful staff are simply magic! From the minute we were picked up from the airport to the moment we checked out of the Riad it was seamless. Nelly really took the time to help us map out our stay in the city and ensured that we were always comfortable. Her and her staff went above and beyond what we expected and really made our stay feel like we were right at home. We loved it so much we stayer here again on our way back home from Morocco!
The staff, food and hospitality were amazing. We would highly recommend staying at this riad. The owner, Nelly, goes out of her way to make people feel welcome and relaxed.
Nelly was an outstading host with a giant heart from our arrival until the very last goodbye! She made us feel at home instantly and went to great lenghts to ensure her guests well-being. The location is superb right in the middle of the boiling city- yet- when you enter her riad you feel like you've just entered an oasis, a getaway from the world. The breakfast is delicious, the hamam most relaxing and Nelly does not hesitate to fulfill any of your wishes. I really recommend the Vanilla Sma to anyone (couple, families, singles and so on) because everyone is going to leave more than satisfied!!!!
I can say from the bottom of my heart: there is nothing I could possibly complain about!
Excellent food Excellent friendly service from all staff
nothing at all - wonderful place
Cleanliness Khadija and Sultana are amazing Breakfast Decor
Wish the bathroom in the rooms had a door
Gorgeous decor, very nice breakfast, comfortable beds, attentive staff. My bus from Tetouan arrived three hours late, and there was still someone waiting for me at the station to take me to the Riad. Nelly arranged a guide for fantastic excursion to the Atlas Mountains which I shared with a couple who were staying at the Riad. She went out of her way to suggest evening activities.
great service from the owner, who helped us plan the rest of our travels through morocco. Also great help with getting around marrakech.
Rizwan- looked after us with the greatest care. Nothing was too much for him. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the riad was like a second home. We were actually sad to leave. Sultana is a great cook, and a very gentle person.The breakfasts were great and rooftop was an excellent place to relax. The rooms are clean and cool and furnished with great taste. The place is an oasis of calm and cool in an otherwise hectic city. It is very close to the main square and attractions. We are so lucky that we picked this riad to stay in. Would highly recommend and would stay here again when we return.
Nothing to fault
Vero nice place, colse to the main attractions
