As soon as you step through the door of Riad Villa El Arsa you are transported from the hustle and bustle of the city to a calm space where you can relax amongst the tasteful interior. Noel and Fabrice are wonderful hosts and made me feel very welcome; nothing was too much trouble. My room was beautifully decorated and I slept very well waking to the sound of the birds in the morning. The breakfast was excellent and the mint tea and sweet biscuits served in the afternoon were very tasty.
The riad is down some winding back alleys which initially makes you wonder where you chose to stay, but when you get there it's lovely! We stayed in February so it was cold, but the roof terrace still caught what sun was available and the cosy nook with sofas and a fire is good for chess playing!! Afternoon mint tea is very welcome and the staff are always very helpful.
Wifi connection was not always great, had to use it in the communal areas rather than in our room.
Location Staff / Owner Service Interior Design Breakfast Everything was perfect and very lovely!
Very friendly service. They provide anything you need, as related to the riad like the overall trip (they even give you a mobile phone with numbers recorded for you to use it during the trip) Room nicely decorated and with all amenities Hearty and quality breakfast Very well located
Great place in the heart of the Medina. Lovely breakfast on the sun terrace and a great spot to catch the rays. Noel organized a day trip to the waterfalls in the Ourika valley. Super restaurant (Pepenero) just around the corner. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.
The staff could not have done more for us. They were always available to give info and advice and to recommend restaurants etc. Refreshments were provided every time we returned from a trip out. Our room was roomy and comfortable with everything we needed. The food was good.
No handrails on the stairs but I guess this is because it is an old building and they would be difficult to fix. Younger people probably wouldn't find this a problem.
Great location in a lovely riad, friendly staff, good breakfasts - definitely recommend
Koutoubia room was fairly small and not very private
Riad Villa el Arsa is located on fantastic spot in the Medina. Only 5 minutes walk to the Jamae el Fna square it's quite, safe and rustic. the hosts are very friendly and do everything to make your stay as please as possible including transfer to the airport vice versa, tours to nearby places and inside tips for Marrakesh. We can recommend this Raid !
Riad Villa el Arsa is tastefully styled and designed. It is spotlessly clean, with lots of thought given to all the small details which make a stay delightful. The staff are wonderfully considerate. Complimentary mint tea & pastries on your return to the Riad after getting lost in the souks just adds to the joy of staying at this Riad. Breakfast on the sun terrace every morning, a mixture of pastries, eggs, juice etc. You have to stay at this Riad as it is only a very short work to Jemma al Fna & it's just wonderful from the decor, to the staff!
Don't be ridiculous!
Friendly hosts, nice Riad, rooftop terrace, quiet location
A realy lovelly riad. Noel and Fabrice were extremely friendly, reliable and helpful. Well organised and smooth transfers. Lots of helpful advice on where to go, what to see annd how to negotiate the city. Very convenient location close to the square - a bit scary on the first trip out but we very quickly orientated ourselves. Lovely breakfast on the terrace, even in December.
Our hosts and the night attendant were extremely kind and helpful. We were able to arrange transport from the hotel easily and upon arrival were given a warm welcome (which of course included some mint tea) and information about the city (a map, restaurant recommendations). We enjoyed staying in the gorgeous old riad and found it very relaxing overall. Good breakfast, an absolutely fabulous Moroccan dinner prepared by our hosts, and a nice fire to sit by in the evenings were some of the highlights. I'd definitely stay here again!
No complaints whatsoever!
Noel was the perfect host , time spent on the roof terrace over mint tea giving a local mobile phone and a map , he carefully marked all our enquiries and locations . Then said with a smile the way to experience Marrakech is go and get lost , not to lost the phone has our number and local taxi ! We will definitely be back , I left a piece of my heart in the square x
Lights out at 11pm was not great on holiday!
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!!!
