        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 This Riad has got new owners and some of the informations on their webpages are no longer valid.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.

        Excellent service, spacious room, attentive staff
        From the initial welcome by Youssef, the Riad manager, we felt quite at home. Breakfast was served when we wanted, early morning coffee was available for the asking, excursions planned at the drop of a hat, and always a smile. We chose to have several dinners at the Riad. The food was tasty and the price reasonable. We had many opportunities to relax and had a most comfortable suite. Our week in Marrakech was made very special because of the attentive care of the staff. After our first day at Sidi Ayoub we commented that it would be hard to leave. And it was. We'll certainly return to Riad Sidi Ayob when we are next in Marakech.,

        Wonderful Riad with great decor and great rooms”
        Wonderful property right in the Medina with very friendly staff and the food is fantastic
        Hard to find in the Medina, but once you have worked it all out it is great
        We had a great stay in this Riad. It is everything we expected a Riad to be with lovely open courtyard, great rooms and very friendly staff who were very helpful. We arranged an airport pick-up which worked well. We had dinner in house one night which was probably the best meal we had in Morocco - big helpings and very well presented. We would highly recommend this property for your stay in Marrakech.

        Netter Raum in einer ruhigen Gegend”
        Das Personal versteht mehr französisch als englisch, bei uns gab es leider nur einen Mitarbeiter der englisch fliesend sprach. Trotzdem haben alle Abmachungen geklappt. Man Läuft ca. 10-15 Minuten zum zentralen Platz, man geht am Anfang aber durch ein nicht so touristisches Viertel, wo wir uns nicht so sicher gefühlt haben. Uns ist aber nichts passiert. Die zwei großen Mankos sind aber eher, dass a) man die Zimmer Türen nicht abschließen kann und b) es ziemlich schwer zu finden ist. Die Taxi Fahrer versuchen einen über das Ohr zu hauen und man muss noch extra dafür bezahlen, dass jemand einen dort hinführt.

        Ganz nett ”
        Das Riad lag sehr zentral in der Medina und war trotzdem ruhig. Die Zimmer war recht geräumig und sauber. Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Aber durch die bisherigen Bewertungen hatte ich mir mehr erhofft. Das Riad ist extrem hellhörig, man versteht jedes Wort der anderen Gästen und wird um 6 Uhr wach durch das vogelzwitschern und den Lärm des Personals welches das Frühstück vorbereitet. Zudem hatte ich mich darauf verlassen das in jedem Zimmer wie angegeben ein Föhn ist. Dies ist leider nicht der Fall für 7 Zimmer gibt es 2 Stück und diese waren natürlich belegt. Zudem war die Sauna in der Zeit kaputt was sehr schade war. Noch enttäuschender fand ich die Angaben zum "Pool" (Innenpool, Außenpool und wirlpool) denn dieser ist tatsächlich das kleine Loch im Boden direkt neben dem Eingangsbereich, welcher auf den Bildern zu sehen ist. Alles könnte mit etwas mehr liebe zum Detail dekoriert sein und nochmal renoviert werden. Außerdem schade das nur 1 Mitarbeiter gut englisch sprach.
