We arrived at this Riad very late night. But stuffs were very nice and very friendly. We could have nice Moroccan dinner at the night which we asked them on ahead in Japan. One of their amazing hospitalities is that they gave us a mobile phone during our stay in Marrakech for emergency just in case. We never used it though. But as for foreigner, it's just very helpful. I'm from Japan, and I have traveled many countries. Around 30 countries. But even though, this one could be top 5 hospitality stay in my life! Thank you again! If I'll have chance to go back to Marrakech, definitely I will stay there!
We were so glad that we chose Riad Villa El Arsa for our stay in Marrakech!! Fabrice and Noël and the whole team were super friendly and helpful. The Riad was so lovely, clean and comfortable.It was just 4-5 minutes walk from the famous Jamaa El Fna Square but the riad is in a small residential area so it is safe and quiet during night.The home-made breakfast was so good and fresh! We had amazing morocain mint tea and morocain pastries everyday for free! We really appreciated everything that the team of Riad Villa El Arsa did for us and it was really like our home in Marrakech! Definitely go back again!
We loved everything!
My family and I spent 5 wonderful days at Riad El Arsa, and we can say that we had one of the most amazing experiences we ever encountered. Noel,Fabrice and the entire staff made our stay very relaxing; from the breakfast served on the terrace or in the interior court yard, to the afternoon tea, to an evening spent in front of the fireplace in the salon,to the very well looked after suite we chose to rent, we enjoyed 5* treatment. Thank you all for making our stay an unforgetable one.
Such a lovely riad - beautiful interiors and a great location, just 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Jamaa el Fna and the surrounding souks. The service was exceptional - Noel was quick to respond to email queries in advance of our arrival, and throughout our stay it was clear they really cared about the customer experience. The medina can be a confusing maze at first - definitely worth taking up their offer of arranging the transfer from the airport/train station. After a long (hot!) day out, we were always welcomed back with iced tea and sweets, with someone always available to help with any questions we had/provide helpful tips and suggestions. They have a lovely terrace upstairs where breakfast is served - breakfast doesn't seem to be a particularly elaborate meal in Morocco but I still recommend it! I was excited to hear Fabrice was a chef and it definitely showed - breakfast was different each day, with what I believe were different home made jams/preserves as well. We were leaving really early on the day we checked out (0545) but they still offered us a light breakfast - we didn't take them up on it but I thought that was a lovely touch as well. Highly recommend booking dinner at the riad one of the nights - it was our last meal in Morocco and it was exquisite! (Note: They typically do not offer dinner on Saturdays, but they were very accommodating and were able to arrange the meal for us - again, a lovely touch!) Overall, great experience - l look forward to my next visit! :)
Location, roof terrace, welcoming and helpful staff/owner providing good recommendations on restaurants and other supportive information incl. detailed map. The room decorations and lay out - felt very authentic, still providing good bathroom facilities. Highly recommend the transfer from/to the airport upon arrival and departure. Good AC on the first floor bedrooms we stayed in. We stayed first two nights and then a third night some days later.
Nothing I can remember

Nothing I can remember but be aware to keep noise level down due to limited insulation between rooms and public area which all guests respected to our knowledge.
we were looking forward to stay a second time during our trip at Villa El Arsa, because the hospitality of Noelle, Fabricio and his crew was extraordinary. We got excellent hints for little museums out of the touristic main stream. The place itself invites to stay there and to relax on the terasse. Next time we would choose a dinner there to enjoy the whole programm!
This traditional riad is very centrally located in the medina within easy reach of everything you're likely to want to see. From the rooftop terrace you can see the mountains and hear the call to prayer across the city but inside you are a world away from the chaos whether you choose to spend your time relaxing in the beautifully furnished lounges, eating a wonderful Moroccan meal or just chatting with the friendly and knowledgeable owner Noel. Highly recommended!
Staff that catered to our needs. Nice and quiet inside. Wonderful bathroom. Super helpful
The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful, being kind enough to arrange our collection at the airport and escort to the riad, which was very useful as we arrived late in the evening when it was dark and could easily have lost our way. They also brought iced every day when we got back to the riad in the afternoon, which was very welcome in the warm weather. The location is also great for accessing the Medina and the main square. Breakfasts are also great.
With map easy to find, very helpful and friendly staff - all very open minded. Warm welcome at arrival. All important sites are just around the corner and Noelle gave very good advice concerning non-touristic places!! The rooftopterrace is very beautiful and has cosy corners as well as sun chairs.
Nothing. Best place!!!
Being for the second time in Marrakech we decided to stay in the Medina this time. Villa El Arsa is a wonderful place - a very friendly location. Noel and Fabrice, the owners, are attending and do all for you to feel comfortable without being intrusive. Cold tea is served if you come back beat. Only 5 min to Djemma El Fna. Cheap and clean restaurants not far away. Noel has organized a tour for us for - in our opinion - reasonable price (Telout, Ait Ben Haddou and back to Marrakech with private driver for 3 persons). W-Lan. AC and- in hot August - the small but refreshing basin is a very pleasant feature. Roof top with nice vista where you can lounge and relax. Room and bathroom were cleaned very neat every day (which isnt general use in many hotels). Perfect ! We would stay here definitively again.
The only thing we are wondering about was that they changed the towels every 2 days but if you need more you will get more.
Very friendly staff, noël is very knowledgeable and willing to help you plan your stay. Lovely breakfast to start opthe day, tea and pastries when you return. The riad is very welcoming and well maintained
Very warm welcome from owners and staff. Excellent location, very clean, and filling breakfast. We were made very welcome and given advice and suggestions that were helpful. Would not hesitate to return.
1 noel is an excellent & patient manager 2 location is really covenient 3 breakfast is good 4 we really liked the authentic Moroccan feel
There was nothing to dislike
Beautiful Riad, decorated exquisitely. It's quite small so atmosphere is very intimeate. It's really near the Jamar el Fna square but very quiet (print the map from their website to find it easily). The pool is really just a big bath, but it's great for relaxing after a hot day around Marrakech. The managers, Fabrice et Noël, are simply superb. Their welcome was warm and attentive. They explained everything clearly and had many unrequited courtesies with us. They also attended to any requests we had. Breakfast in the beautiful terrace is great, with top quality food and freshly squeezed OJ (tea and coffee could be a bit better). Toiletries and towels are really nice too. Wifi was great throughout the Riad, from the living room at the bottom through to to the terrace.
The shower head spray is awful.
Superb services in a beautiful Riad. Recommend the cooking class at the Riad.
Beautiful riad. The royal room we had was big and very comfortable. The staff (Abdul) was extremely friendly and helpful. The riad is a 2 minute walk from Djema'a el Fna on the café de France side. I will not comment further on the surrounding area as we did not like Marrakech very much.
Excellent, professional staff that were friendly and efficicient. Little touches such as complementary Moroccan pastries and refreshments on returning to road in the afternoon.
Everything! The rooms, the Riad itself was so lovely, down to every little detail and having breakfast on the roof terrace each morning! Would highly recommend staying here! Everyone was so friendly and helpful, made you feel so welcome! Once you got your bearings, it was easy enough to find!
Everything was absolutely perfect about our stay at Riad Villa El Arsa. Noel and his team are excellent hosts ensuring ones stay is comfortable and welcome. The breakfasts are different every morning with the best tasting jam selection! The Riad is quiet yet so close to the centre of the Medina (town square ) thoroughly recommend.
The staff were all very helpful and incredibly sweet. They provided useful maps and information for navigating the city. Breakfast on the terrace was magical.
Be in mind that the area is not very safe in the evenings if you travel only girls!
Beautiful riad with lovely lighting and fittings, roof terrace and interior decorations. Great location a short walk from the main sights and easy to get back to, but also nicely tucked away. Friendly, welcoming staff.
Limited breakfast spread..
