The staff alone made our visit I think. From being greeted with a cracking cup of Mint Tea to helping us track down our driver in a busy square as we left, they went way beyond what we would expect from them. Couldn't ask for more.

The door on our en suite did not shut and we were unable to lock it. Also the shower was not enclosed so made the bathroom floor very wet and slippery.
Staff were fantastic and always put themselves out to help us. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

If you are expecting a 5 star hotel don't stay in a Riad. This is Africa so you will need to shift your view as the place is in the Medina. If you are expecting a hotel like Las Vegas you might not want to visit Morocco. That said we were disappointed in the swimming pool. There are two (both small but one larger) and only one can be warmed. So if you are visiting at a time other than summer be prepared. They can heat the small pool but there is a charge that is not listed anywhere on the internet or on the booking information. They don't heat it all the time. In addition our room needed some repair in the bathroom, which they said they would do. The hotel in the public areas was a decent speed but in our room it was slower and lying in bed the WiFi reception was slow.
The staff was great, specifically Ali. Ali went out of his way to look after any need and to help us in any way. He treated us like family and spent time teaching us about the local culture. Ali, really made our stay more special. The riad is also close to Jemaa el-Fnaa square. The breakfast was good and dinner was excellent.

bathroom was not good: no curtains at the shower, the shower itself was very bad and would split water all around, the sink was leaking
Very friendly staff
February 17, 2015
The room was very small, with not even a small table. It was very cold inside the room
The situation, The bathroom was very nice and clean

Riad Africa was close to the hustle and bustle of the main square and souk but still a peaceful place to relax. The ideal location! We were three female friends holidaying together in Marrakech for the first time and we felt very safe. We received a very warm welcome from all the staff especially Mohamed, Aziz and Ali who were always smiling. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we are definitely coming back! We are recommending this Riad to all of our friends. All together a fantastic stay and a wonderful experience.

Central location, comfortable rooms. The staff went beyond the call of duty.

The hot water was intermittent and we needed to use the shower in one of our friends room because we had absolutely no hot water! Not ideal seeing as we just returned from a tour camping in the desert. I was charged for the room before checking out. That would not normally be a problem but as I booked rooms for my friends too, I was charged for those rooms too without any notice.
The Riad looked lovely. We received a warm welcome and tips on tours and restaurants.

room a little tired in places find the place was hard on our first night
friendly helpful staff food breakfast overall accommodation
December 30, 2014
Big room with enough space for us + 2 young children. Staff very welcoming and fond of children. Enough space upstairs and on the roof terrace to stay clear of the pool in the patio (beautiful but not so easy to manage with young children!) Delicious breakfast! We didn't stay long enough to try another meal!

There was no fluffy white towels as advertised but some with dark marks and holes. Very small room.
Very good location, nice and friendly staff
December 23, 2014
The only thing I personally didn't like was the breakfast. I don't like eggs, so only choice was cold bread and jam. They could put some cakes, cereal and fruit for people like me and toast.
This is a great place to stay. Right in the heart of life in Media. While inside you have the peace and tranquility you need for a relaxing stay. Staff are excellent, very friendly.

The design of the hotel does leave it open to being noisy if guests are not aware of their surroundings and others. Otherwise it was very peaceful.
The hotel in general was comfortable and to a reasonable standard.Good value for money. Location was excellent. Food at the hotel was very good and the breakfast was more than adequate to set you up for a days sightseeing.Staff were very pleasant and attentive and spoke a variety of languages

Water pressure not good, but believe this problem is being addressed. Also you need to know there is a local hotel tax per person. We were not aware of this, but it really wasn't much.
The staff were amazing. nothing is too much trouble. .The Riad itself is charming, very comfortable, peaceful, welcoming and very well located. It offered good value, good food and some lovely personal touches. Would go back tomorrow without hesitation.

Nothing about the Riad, but if anyone in the area offers to show you around for free, just politely decline. The riad staff can arrange excursions for you.
Good location. Walking distance from main square. Excellent customer service from supervisor Mohammed - really took care of us and our needs. Felt at home.
November 24, 2014
Nick, Mohamed and Aziz could not have been more helpful. Delicious dinner. Lots of special touches like free tangerines and mint tea. Nick and his team have got it just right - the attention to detail was first class.

Bedding and towels were not changed as often as we would have liked, but staff were really helpful when we requested a new set so this was not an issue!
The team at Riad Africa made our group of 4 girls feel really welcome in the crazy city that is Marrakech. They were really helpful and sorted out any requests that we had, going above and beyond to make us feel at home! We use the Riad as a base for our 5 days in Morocco and went on a day trip to the mountains which was all organised for us by the Riad team. The Riad is a relaxing home from home near to the busy markets but not slap bang in the middle of the madness, which we loved!
November 20, 2014
From the moment we arrived at the Riad, the staff were very friendly and helpful and this continued throughout our stay. Mohamed provided us with a very useful map and explained how to get to places of interest. Our room was lovely, very clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, especially when enjoyed on the lovely roof terrace. The location is great - 2 minutes from the taxi drop off point (recommend you pre-book this) and around 5 minutes walk from Jamaa el Fnaa. Really enjoyed our stay, Marrakech is an amazing place.

The bathroom floor needed reprinting and the hot water was so erratic that you were alternately scalded and chilled under the shower. We'd advise visitors to take an adaptable plug and have a bath. It wouldn't use any more water than Trying to use the shower.
The roof terrace. Looking down on the pool from above. Being close to everything but in a very secluded street.
November 10, 2014
Useless gadgets in the room, yet no Wi-Fi. Booking should include instructions on how to find the place.
Close to Jemma el Fna yet quiet. Well kept and clean. Helpful, friendly staff

In the first room the beds were not great, better in the second
Location great, loved the sun terrace, staff were very friendly and helpful, good food too
September 30, 2014
Great location, loved the roof garden, nice place to chill out. Food was delicious, we ate at the riad 4 nights out of 5. All the staff were really friendly and helpful, would recommend.
September 21, 2014
This riad is well-located with very friendly and helpful staff. Tim the manager was great fun and had lots of useful info about where to go and what to do. Good value - we're intending to send our daughter there as a 21st birthday present and will stay there again ourselves.

on aurait aimé rester plus longtemps/we wish we could have extended our stay
For our final stop after a long road trip through Spain and Morocco we made a last-minute booking in Riad Africa. We soon learned that we could not have made a better choice, and were quickly made to feel like we’re staying in a distant family’s home. The feeling that you have a home to come back to at the end of a hot crazy day at the Marrakech market just cannot be beat. Comparing to other Riads we stayed at in Morocco, this one takes the prize. At the risk of using a cliché, we have to say we came to see it as a true oasis where the quiet rooftop patio provided a quiet break from the loud bustle of the streets, the cold pools a counterattack for the scorching heat, and the staff – a trusted support network (which I’m sure is not in their job description). We never locked our doors, loved sitting around on the patio and at the pool, and generally spent way too much time at the Raid considering we came a long way to see Marrakech. We had a beautiful room with homey Moroccan décor, and (I have to point out) some sort of Ferrari of an air conditioner that made no sound but quickly adjusted the room to the desired temperature. The manager and staff were incredible hosts, and every day we felt like they were going out of their way to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. We could not learn enough ways to say thank you in Arabic /French to keep up with everything they did. Some guests complained that it took long to receive breakfast, but considering we were all warned that if we choose to eat on the patio we have to give the staff time to bring the food up three flights of stairs, we didn’t mind. The place gets a true gold star for their dinners. We quickly learned that Moroccans eat traditional food at home, and few restaurants offer truly traditional home-cooked meals. The only place we finally found amazing Moroccan food (having travelled through Tanger, Chefchaouen and Rabat) was here.

The staff went above and beyond. The location is great. Fantastic Riad and would highly recommend!!
