    The riad was a fantastic location, so close to the main square but hidden away in peace and quiet. The staff were so amazing and kind to my sister and I. We felt so relaxed and comfortable just like we were at home. The riad is a beautiful sanctuary.

    All members of staff were extremely helpful and went the extra distance to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay. The room was clean and tidy, light and airy. Situated within the Medina made it the perfect location for short excursions into the souks. The evening meal on arrival was excellent, so much so we ate at the riad every other night with service provided on the roof top in the well maintained garden.

    A fabulous hotel. Tim and his team ensure you are well looked after. For slightly inexperienced travellers Marrakesh can be a daunting place but Tim is there to assist you and guide you. A welcoming English guy with a fab hard working team. The hotel is located 7 minutes’ walk from the square but is nice and quiet. Really easy to find. The terrace is ideal for relaxing in the afternoons and the bedrooms are well appointed and very clean. Will defiantly be returning as the team made me feel so safe and welcomed. Marrakesh is an amazing insult on the senses and is the perfect place to get away from the daily life and routine.

    Having spent hours searching online, we settled on this lovely authentic riad. Location was excellent, very clean and welcoming. We felt safe walking to and from the riad and enjoyed the banter with local sellers. Staff are all very friendly and speak good English, among other languages. We celebrated a 'special' birthday while on holiday here and the staff were amazing, decorating the roof terrace with balloons and banners (at no extra cost), providing a lovely dinner and a tasty chocolate birthday cake personalised in Arabic. Above and beyond the call of duty. Would definitely recommend to friends.

    Our arrangements with the airport pick-up were a disaster, leaving us stranded on arrival at the airport at night. Not a great start to the holiday and the only negative to our stay, but we realised taxis are much cheaper than the over-priced service the transport people offer although do confirm the price before leaving the airport!

    The Riad Africa is excellent. The sort if place you never want to leave. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Their knowledge of Marrakesh was very much appreciated. Will return and would recommend highly.

    Nothing to dislike

    The staff were exceptional. Always happy and willing to offer help and guidance. The Riad is centrally located in the Medina. Breakfast on the roof terrace is a must!

    There is no fault with this Riad.

    Staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent base for exploring the city. Tim is very knowledgable and gave some good advice that made everything easier. Breakfast was perfect and having breky on the terrace is fab.

    There was nothing I didn't like. The pool is too small for a swim having said that there was no time for swimming. Too busy exploring the city.

    The staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Tim was awesome. Booking a transfer was a fantastic decision as we arrived at 1am and were met by a Riad Africa staff member and walked to the property. Not sure we would have found it otherwise. The air conditioning in our room was a blessing. The breakfast was good. The kids loved the pool. No complaints!

    Excellent location & very friendly & helpful staff. A lovely terrace on the roof with house pets too! The whole stay was very comfortable & the team at the Riad couldn't do enough whatever the random request! We would definitely stay here again for sure!

    Honestly couldn't say there was anything we disliked at all!

    Manager attitude was amazing in everything, he helped us a lot. Location is fantastic, Riad Africa is very quite, nice and marvelous.

    Room had a humidity feeling around and smells wet. Bed linen also smells bad and matress was not very good. Wifi just in the lobby.

    Helpful and informative staff. Great location for experiencing and exploring the old city of Marrakesh. Riad Africa itself oozed Moroccan atmosphere and culture. Very comfortable and always welcoming. We really enjoyed our 4 night stay.

    The staff, from Tim and Muhammed, through to Rashid and the kitchen staff were excellent. Tim especially was passionate about Marrakech and helped us get the most out of our trip.

    Put the reassurance about not getting lost in the booking confirmation / an email! We never did get lost after Tim's explanation of how to find the Riad but the first time we came up to it we wouldn't have found it easily without Muhamed.

    Multi nationalities staying and friendly relaxed atmosphere created a haven away from the busy jemma el fna and souks. Ideally located, 10 minute walks to various places. Tim, the manager, always helpful and a vast knowledge.

    Costs re food, drink not communicated so you could get surprised at the end of your trip.

    Tim welcomed us with mint tea and a smile...even though we turned up 3 hours early...the place is immaculate..well run...and nothing is too much trouble...the staff will do anything to help if they can and the building is exactly my taste...it was just perfect...will go back as soon as i can

    i didnt like leaving...thats the only negative point :) seriously..if you find anything negative about Riad Africa...then perhaps the problem is you and maybe you should stay at home

    The assistant was very friendly and helpful. The location is fine and the rooms are clean and nice.

    They didn't tell us that they were building new rooms, so there was a lot of noise during daytime and the roof terrace was not comfortable because of the working men. We understand, but it is better to inform your clients about this.
