3 of us had gone to Marrakech for a special birthday! We booked the riad opale for 4 nights and was really looking forward to it. On our arrival we were greeted with the manager' ishmal' on his phone. We waited about 5 minutes before being shown a table whilst he took a group to another hotel. We were then...

Riad Opale is a peaceful haven on the southern edge of the Marrakech Medina. A stylish Moroccan interior, with a lovely pool and roof terrace, and walkable to the main square and souks. The staff are very friendly and helpful, anticipating guests needs where possible. We were made to feel ‘part of the family’, which was lovely. It was almost...

Easy walking distance from the Jemaa el-Fnaa square. Very friendly and helpful hotel manager, although his recommendation of the Cozy Bar was not to our taste. Nice breakfast set out at the time we requested. We liked the comfortable sofas on the roof top area to relax in the early evening.

The Riad Opale is a small and traditionally styled riad close to all the markets and town centre, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel has a lovely atmosphere. The pool is not suitable for swimming and when we were there in early January, the guest areas and pool...

Good place but overrated and overpriced. The adress in TripAdvisor is wrong, place is a little bit far from Jamaa al Fnaa. No credit cards: that was really annoying. Not too bad in general but it cannot be recommended as first choice in Kech.

Lovely traditional Riad. An oasis of calm in a very busy city, yet only a 15 minute walk to Jemaa El Fna and the Souks. Beautiful large traditionally furnished rooms, loads of hot water for showers, great TV, no locks on doors, but this was fine. The only people in the building were other residents. Couldn't get wi fi. There...

Stayed at the Riad Opale from September 22nd for 3 nights with three others. Very different to your average hotel but the staff were lovely and extremely helpful and gave us loads of advice on restaurants, transport etc. No locks on hotel bedrooms though which I found a little worrying but it is a small hotel and staff were on...

The riad is in the Jewish quarter and away from the main souks, this means that you're not straight out of your door and into the wonderful chaos of Marrakesh. The walk (only ten minutes) gives you time to adjust and you see people going about their daily lives which we enjoyed very much. The riad is lovely and so...

“If you stay do not choose one of the small rooms as you cannot swing a cat in them. The largest suite the Saphir is about the size of an average hotel room. Be aware that it is very dark in the rooms with no direct outside light/windows.”
