Had an emergency and had to book a riad in Marrakech for a night a couple of hours before. luckily we found Riad Smara. We arrived very late at around 11.30pm and the owner came to pick us up from the main road which was very helpful as we would have definitely got lost. Room was very spacious and was...

If your going to stay in a Riad here's the place, a fantastic team headed by Abraham, a sound manager who really loves his job attention to detail, and always willing to go the extra. That is really important because around this Medina can be quite intimidating, our room was so comfi the bed and bathroom fab, the best is...

Riad Smara is an unpretentious small hotel (riad) situated in the middle of the Medina, which means it's surrounded by poor streets and buildings. Medina itself--the historic neighborhood of Marrakech and the city's poorest area--will overwhelm most first time visitors from the West. It overwhelmed and at times even scared me, but I soon learned that its streets are much,...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights at the end of November. We both absolutely loved the Riad and the very helpful manager, Ibrahim. As previous reviewers have noted it is a little hard to find but once we did (with a little help from an insane taxi driver and some opportunistic local youths) it was well worth...

As we arrived we paid immediately - the breakfast was included in the price. Before our flight to Morocco we have already booked some one-day trips, for every day we stayed. So , even though we did already paid for breakfast She (the owner) did not gave it to us (we had to leave before breakfast every morning (before 8am)...

Breakfast is pretty common; dinner is very good - traditional tajine; rooms (we have visited 4 out of 6 because we had a small problem with the reservation) are very nice traditional decorated; but the "cherry on top" is Ibrahim - the manager of the riad, if you have the time and curiosity to "discover" him you will get a...

Stayed for 2 night in april2013, very relaxing with a small little splash pool to cool off after the madness that is marrakesh. The brekfast was good and though we didnt eat there the food looked good. Nice rooms and a nice bathroom. I would recommend.
