      The two-star rating for location was due to constant harassment getting anywhere in Marrakesh; no reflection on excellent accommodation at Riad Sidi Ayoub.

      Nice stay in Marrakesh”

      We stayed 2 nights at Riad Sidi Ayoub. Luckily we booked airport pickup to the riad so the driver can call riad manager to bring us to the right place. The staff all were very kind, manager briefed us the nearby sights and helped us a lot in communicating with the local agents in phone. Nearby is very local markets and we seldom saw tourists, it is 15-20min walking distance from the Jamaa Square. We got another room without air-con, but the night weather was acceptable in early June. I love the Orange trees at the beautiful Courtyard where we had delicious breakfast. Recommended and valued for budget.

      Better arrange the pick up service even it is overprice . If not , you are not able to find the hotel by yourself. The staff are nice but English is just soso! And it is not clean enough . The shower is not strong enough. And a little bit flooding on the floor

      Nice place”

      Positive: beautiful Riad/hotel and nice roof top. Clean and neat rooms with beautiful decorations. Pretty quiet location a bit off from the noisy square and streets. Delicious dinner that you can book in advance. Friendly staff. Negative: Poor English language skills of the staff, better if you know French or Spanish. Poor sound insulation from outside as you can hear if other guests are talking outside your room. A bit difficult to find the first time as you have to go through some narrow alleyways to reach the hotel. No proper sound insulation between bathroom and hotel room inside the hotel room. Overall good experience!

      Nice stay in Marrakech”

      Staff at this hotel are so nice and kind to us. When I arrived in Marrakech, the owner came to the plaza nearby the hotel to pick us up because the hotel is located in a kind of difficult place to find. Also, when we got in trouble with the locals in front of the hotel, they helped us. The room which they upgraded to suit was clean and comfortable with a huge bed. This hotel also has the nice courtyard where you can enjoy mint tea which was served as a welcome drink! The location was also good, just 15 mins walk from main plaza. However, you should be careful especially when you're alone walking around the hotel (some locals try to take advantage of you). Overall, I really enjoyed staying at the hotel, and recommend you to stay there!

      Clean, peaceful, friendly staffs and feels at home! Though its quite an adventure going to the square but its part of the experience in Marrakech. 15-20mins walk to jemaa el fna. Had always a good sleep at night. Theres no hot shower but its ok with me. And thank you Youseff for arranging my tour to the desert!

      Friendly and welcoming road in excellent location if you wish to stay in the Médina. Facilities are basic but clean and pleasant with a shady courtyard and lovely roof terrace. Yousef and his team are helpful and warm. Only issue was the 4 am airport taxi which they booked for us did not turn up and despite assurances the night before there were no staff around at that time to help or make phone calls, necessitating a stressful scurry to the main square with suitcases and nearly missing our flight!

      lovely riad.”

      friendly staff

      riad sidi ayoub is located where one gets lost the first time. it's a little challenging to navigate to the riad, but as all places around the medina, everything seems to be in a maze-like. good thing, one of the staff/family members met us outside, and we were given a map of the place. mohamed was very helpful, and spoke good english, so there was no language barrier problems. breakfast was included. the big square in the medina is about 15 minutes away by foot from the riad. we were given a room with lovely moroccan design and architecture. overall, the place offered good value for money. there was a small pool across from the reception area but we didn't use it as it wasn't heated.

      Nice Riad in old part of Marrakech”

      Good service

      After a bad start when our room was not available when we arrived >(had to sleep first night in another Riad) we was very satisfied with our Suite when finally able to move in the next morning. Small Riad (7 rooms9 , a short 10 min walk from the market and Jamna El Fna. Its easy to get lost in this part of Marrakech as we did the first day. Language are mainly French in addition to arabic and berber, english are not very common in the old part of Marrakesh. Service minded staff at the Riad made our stay a good one, they prepared good food for us, helped us with tours and travel arrangements. This Riad has got new owners and some of the informations on their webpages are no longer valid. It was not possible to buy wine to go with our food in the Riad as advertised, but we found a Carrefour shop selling alchohol in a shoppingmall just outside the old city. Shopping in the Souks can be very tiring and a biig hassle. Most sellers are demanding 10x price from tourists, whatever you look at seems to be called antiques and are expensive. we ended paying about 10-20% of asked price for the items we bought, if you dont like to bargain then stay away from the souks. All in all we had a nice week in Marrakech.

      Lovely hotel”

      Lovely hotel, clean, initial service was very nice.

      Transfer was by the hotel. It is 200 dirhams vs 80-100 dirhams by the "small taxi". But the taxi will not know where to find the hotel, so it is worth it. Being a riad, ie a hotel with rooms giving onto a central court yard, it was on the noisy side as we could here the other guests and staff till late into the evening and starting at 7:00am in morning. Location: 15 minute walk if you know how to get there through some narrow muddy (if it rains) alleyways and streets to the main souk and square. Beware of all the people trying to propose to you directions and or guiding y as they either will send walking in circles and keep pointing in the wrong direction on purpose or charge more than 10 euros to get you there. The first days, the staff were very nice and friendly. On the day of check out, we were requested to free the rooms early (10am) as other guests were coming "soon". It was cold (14 deg C) and we left the hotel for the airport at 2:30pm, with no new comers in voew! My wife was frozen from waiting in the guest lounge which was comfortable but had no heating. At no stage were the staff sympathetic to her to ask her if she was comfortable or warm or if she wanted anything.
