Score from 187 reviews Very good
Location great, loved the sun terrace, staff were very friendly and helpful, good food too
In the first room the beds were not great, better in the second
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.
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.
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.
on aurait aimé rester plus longtemps/we wish we could have extended our stay
The staff went above and beyond. The location is great. Fantastic Riad and would highly recommend!!
Welcome, Staff (particularly Tim the Manager) Location grear but very quiet. Roof terrace great best breakfast in Morrocco. pool very welcome to cool off in. Good to have tea and coffee making facilities in room
One out of two rooms small, shower not great.
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!
Excellent location, really friendly staff. Would certainly stay here again.
A great place with with fantastic staff especially Tim and Muhammad who couldn't do enough for you, any problems were sorted without fuss, trips and dinners and recommendations were all offered and sorted. Definitely will be going back !!!
The staff were great and the location too. Manager very helpful and knowledgeable with tips on how to navigate the city. Riad itself is beautiful. Breakfast on the roof terrace a must. Thanks for helping us enjoy our stay.
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.
We tried many hotels and this was the best
very helpful staff, great location, good dinner and breakfast
the bathroom was a little tired. Its was clean, just looking a little old.
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.
Having to go home!!!!
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.
