Riad Sidi Ayoub
Booking Tours at Riad - Don't do it.”
Do not book a tour at this Riad. I booked a trip to the Atlas mountains with a driver and a guide. I paid the full price but what I got was no guide and the driver didn't speak English and was not registered as a guide. He had the radio on throughout the tour on a non-English station. It was a saloon car which really struggled on some of the roads, everybody else was in a SUV. He also had to ask local people which way to go!
Lovely lovely place! Rooms are spacious, courtyard is tranquil and beautiful, and location is close to the heart of the medina. The owner is kind and helpful and can communicate well. 5 stars!
Beautiful place, excellent service”
The two-star rating for location was due to constant harassment getting anywhere in Marrakesh; no reflection on excellent accommodation at Riad Sidi Ayoub.
Wonderful hosts and beautiful place.
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
Everything was great, we loved the place and the service. Thank you very much!
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!
Beautiful courtyard and roof terrace”
Basic but cute. Traditional, well kept Riad. Beautiful facilities and quiet. Rooms are small and bathrooms have the typical plugged drain and smell.
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!
The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful! Though the riad is a but hard to find the first time, it is definitely worth it.
Gem inside the medina”
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!
3 nights for mother and adult son”
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!
SERENE STAY IN MARAKESH RIAD”
Alhamdullilah a lovely place to be but the location a bit difficult to navigate. the staff come and pick u up. thank god for that.
Loved it here, staff were super friendly and helpful. The shower needed an upgrade but it did the job.
The host and staff is very friendly and helpful.they helped us recharge our SIM card and tell us how to go to the main square. The breakfast is fabulous,according to the host,it's a local cuisine which me and my friend enjoyed it. There is a small fountain, and it is very beautiful.
Beautiful Riad, very relaxed and nice atmosphere.”
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.
Lovely, calm hotel”
we arrived by taxi from the airport, there was an extra fee for the guy who guided us to the hidden place in the medina. once we arrived a real oasis opened. very friendly service persons. unfortunately there was no wifi in the upper rooms. all together an experience of original ryad we appreciated very much.
Nice Riad in old part of Marrakech”
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.
