Thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Perfect location, it was peaceful and quiet and a 10 minute walk to the bustling Jemaa el-Fna square. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating (e.g moving breakfast earlier so we could be ready for our day trip on time). The included breakfast was amazing, a mixture of traditional Moroccan pancakes and familiar croisants, and varied slightly everyday keeping it interesting. The fruit was fresh as well as the orange juice. The room was clean and comfortable and the decoration all over the road was beautiful. I spent most of my evenings either on the roof top terrace, with a 360 view of the town or one floor down in the sheltered area with comfortable seating (see picture). Adbdul was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat, booking taxis e.t.c. We will definitely return to Riad Shemsi if we visit Morrocco again!!

Zaccaria the best hoster ever

The room was very comfy and clean. It was just right in front of the pool. The breakfast was amazing. All the staff was always available and helpful. They helped us for the excursions and they looked after us. The riad is peaceful and close to the main attractions. Do not talk to the kids that lives around the area. Zaccaria was the best part of it, he made our journey amazing. Thanks zaccariaaaaaaa

Nice people, Nice Location, Nice Price

It's impossible to fault the staff or the welcome. MInt tea is always on tap and they cannot do enough for you.
It's located on the outer reaches of the Medina and accessible to a number of great eateries and fine dining.
The food in the Riad is also of a good quality.
The rooms (we stayed in Vanille) though leave a bit to be desired as the walls are paper thin and the plumbing resembles a waterfall when another guest flushes their toilet or has a shower.
The roof top terrace is a great feature with stunning views.
I would not recommend this for light sleepers but its comfortable and the service makes up for the deficiencies in the accommodation.

Beautiful hotel & spa

Friendly, modern, fresh, relaxing!

Rooms have great climate control, a pool, restaurant and a great selection of spa treatments 😎 I had a massage.

Relax next to the pool or on the roof terrace with a 360 view of Marrakech. You’re right next to the royal place and 10 makes NHS from the busy and bustling square.
