      Nice Riad with very helpful friendly staff”

      I refused the airport taxi and promptly got myself completely lost with my luggage in marrakech at night - a quick call and the Riad came round v quickly and picked me up, I am very grateful! The place was peaceful and clean and room was very nice if a slight overdose of pillows lol!

      Helpful host, great location, authentic Riad, good value”

      Our host, Aziz, and his night manager Said, were extremely helpful. For example, Said sent a midnight car to the airport to fetch us at no extra charge. Aziz personally walked us to our first-morning appointment in the Medina, to orient us and ensure our timeliness. The included breakfast they prepare is ample, delicious and Moroccan. Their restaurant and market recommendations were excellent. The Riad is conveniently located a three minute walk from a main road (Rue Riad Larousse) , and only ten minutes' walk from Djemaa el Fna. Riad Dar Mchicha is authentic, with banana trees growing in its central garden, a lovely rooftop terrace for sun, and medieval stairways designed to give the residents a defensive advantage. If you want a hotel that is big, impersonal and globally interchangeable, with elevators and taxis at the front door, then this isn't the place you want. But if you want an authentic experience of the medina of Marrakesh you cannot do better than Riad Dar Mchicha.

      Authentic Riad with super nice staff”

      Getting to the Riad is tricky but we arranged to be picked up. The host was super nice, meeting up with us late. The room and bath is basic and the steps are very very steep. Breakfast is heavenly delicious even with simple items.

      Host makes it a special stay”

      Excellent: hosts, breakfast and location is in Medina, living almost like a local. One improvement: how to find the place, without google map and a phone call with the host. Make sure to have host phone number before arrival. Overall however a very satisfying stay.

      Great Location inside the Medina”

      We stayed here for 2 nights only and I would love to come back. The location inside the Medina made it ideal to access pretty much everything we wanted to see during our stay. Being close to the outskirts of the Medina also made it only a short walk to vehicle transportation. The courtyard is nice and quiet and well equipped. We stayed in the family room with one double and 2 single beds, and had an entire section of the Riad to ourselves. The bathroom was very large, the only downside was that we had to exit our bedroom to access it. For us this was no big deal, and it was very private so it was okay to walk to and from the bathroom in pajamas. Breakfast was delicious! There was an abundance of food, and I still dream about the coffee. The staff was all very helpful, and were able to organize tours had we been staying longer. This is definitely somewhere I will stay upon returning to Marrakech.

      Only great things to say.”

      Amazing staff - hospitable, genuine, friendly

      Aziz and his wife Asma were wonderful hosts; even before we arrived, e-mail communication was timely and professional. Aziz arranged pickup for us and helped us throughout our stay. We were able to do our laundry, they shared a meal with us, we enjoyed conversations with Aziz about many things, and we felt welcomed. There was an honest mistake made concerning our payment, which we realized after leaving; after contacting Aziz, he promptly wired to us money in another city. What made Marrakech for us, was Aziz and his family. They are amazing at what they do and we cannot thank them enough for their genuine hospitality. We would certainly recommend this riad to our friends and family. As a final thought, arrange for pickup with Aziz, as this riad is not easy to find for the first time.
