We really enjoyed Marrakech but you can only take so much at a time (crowds, noise, heat, getting lost repeatedly) so being able to retreat to such an excellent Riad as Assakina turned out to be vital. Please don't have any hesitation about staying here and make sure you pay attention to Michelle's orientation overview as it's a valuable insight...

The Riad is outstandingly beautiful, with roof top views over the city from the sun terraces, with plunge pool, and a wonderfully cool court yard with swimming pool which was Heaven on a hot day. The hosts Grant and Michele are very warm and welcoming and made our stay comfortable and their staff very attentive to our needs. The Riad...

Michele and Grant are incredibly gracious, accommodating hosts, and Riad Assakina is lovely. My mother and I had a very comfortable stay in beautiful air-conditioned rooms and the staff is unfailingly friendly and helpful. Both Michele and Grant were very generous with advice and happy to assist with all travel arrangements, and their riad is located very close to numerous...

My wife and I stayed at Riad Assakina for 4 nights at the end of May. Hidden away up a dusty alley in the Medina near to the Bahia Palace, an amazing sight is revealed once the door is open. The owners, Grant and Michele, are people of vision, but also very down to earth and approachable. Michele's speciality is...

A sumptuously appointed, centrally located riad, absurdly comfortable, with attentive, solicitous staff. The owners, Michelle and Grant, are very charismatic couple who (with advice, maps, etc) immediately unraveled mysteries of Marrakech for us. Also, quite unexpectedly, we had some great conversations with other guests who happened to be staying at riad. Marny H.

We stayed at the Riad Assakina in March for 3 nights. It is a beautiful place that will certainly amaze you. The breakfasts are incredible - we looked forward to them everyday. The view from the terrace is perfect, it's an awesome place to spend a late afternoon or watch sunset. The rooms are all unique and have a touch...

There are a lot of positives to take from this review, for which we thank the reviewer. The only things to note are as follows: 1. The changes to the price quoted were due to the fact that this guest kept changing the date and duration of his stay with us. 2. When the guest called from the airport he...

Its amazing the difference good service can make to your experience. My wife booked a trip to Marrakech for us both.
