  • The riad was quite far from the entrance and we had to drag our bags over 5 minutes…

    We had a wonderful stay in Marrakech at Riad Assala. The staff were all really friendly and extremely helpful. When we arrived from the airport in the transport they had arranged for us Ahmed met us at our taxi and took our cases through the narrow streets to the Riad where we were greeted by Fatima and Mustafa and offered mint tea as we settled in. They were also very accomodating to my wife's need of a gluten free diet and provided us with delicious food (breakfast every day and some dinners). The location in the heart of the medina was great being within walking distance of most of the main tourist attractions. When we left they once again organised our transport to the airport and Ahmed helped take our cases to the pick up point ensuring that we and our luggage were safely aboard. We would heartily recommend Riad Assala to anyone visiting Marrakech.

    Authentic Riad in very central location, albeit accessed by a small (dark) alley. Staff were brilliant for friendliness and helpfulness.

    Lovely Riad in the heart of the Médina, close to the souk and other attractions. Staff friendly and able to speak English, Spanish, French and Arabic so comunication was excellent!! The Road was beautiful and in great condition, the bfast room/dining room lovely and relaxing. Bfast was excellent and included omelette, yogurt, maroccan bread with marmalade and honey, mint tea, coffe and orange juice.

    Let me start by saying I was a little nervous about using Expedia to pick us up at the airport and drop us off at the hotel. If you are anything like me don’t worry it work for us. I was extremely happy a repensative was sent to pick us up from drop off point. I do not know if they knew we wasn’t moving because it so busy when you are dropped off, but it was appreciated. This should be a norm for all guest if it’s not. Arrived and was greeted with open arms, the hotel staff really took care of us. They guide us every step of the way. They were very understanding of language barriers and found the person who spoke English well. The room was comfortable, beware the water is so hot. Loved it. Also the dinner was great on first night to get your bearing. I asked for a laundry mat and they even washed our clothes for a small fee which freed us up too enjoy more of Morocco. This was one of the best Raid we have stayed in. So if you book you shouldn’t be disappointed. Rooms are decent size for money, no tv but we not there too watch tv. Enjoyed our stayed and if we go back we will definitely book again. The bed was a little too firm for my taste, however it was clean.

    Ahmed & Fatima made our stay at Riad Assala. They were accommodating and kind, even with the language barrier. The riad itself is like a quiet refuge in the busy city. We loved it so much we booked with them again at the end of our stay. One thing to note: it’s a little tricky to find (you have to go down a few internal alleys). It’s helpful to download app to give you precise directions.

    Llegar fue un poco complicado por las calles del Zoco. De ahí en fuera todo muy bien!

    L'emplacement est idéal dans la medina. Beaucoup de petits commerces à proximité. La place jemaa el Fna est facilement accessible à pied.

    Ich bin Anfang März mit meiner Freundin nach Marrakech gereist. Das Riad liegt versteckt in einer Seitengasse, dennoch sehr zentral in Mitten der Médina. Wir wurden vom Hotelpersonal netterweise von unserem Taxi abgeholt und zum Riad gebracht. Alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten sind fußläufig zu erreichen. Obwohl man quasi direkt in einem Souk wohnt, ist es im Riad erstaunlich ruhig und erholsam. Der Pool bietet eine gute Gelegenheit zum Abkühlen und auf der verwinkelten Dachterrasse ist eine Erholung von der turbulenten Stadt möglich. In der Unterkunft haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alle Mitarbeiter waren herzlich und zuvorkommend, haben uns bei jeder noch so kleinen Frage geholfen und wussten immer genau wann der richtige Zeitpunkt war, um uns eine Kanne frischen Minztee anzubieten ;) Merci beaucoup!

    Bellissimo riad, centrale ma una volta entrati si abbandona totalmente la frenesia della medina per rilassarsi tra alberi e fontane. Colazione ottima. Servizio cordiale e attento
