We arrived at the Riad Rafaele in the evening and got a bit of a shock. It was really hectic and we were taken down an alley way to a big painted wooden door. Inside was an oasis of peace and calm, just how I would imagine it to be in Marrakech. The hotel is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished....

Well what a pleasant surprise we had. The taxi we had, organised by the Rafaele, drove through some narrow streets and phoned through to the Rafaele when the driver got as far as he could go, within minutes a member of the Rafaele staff came to meet us and quite happily carried our bags a short distance until we reached...

Riad Rafaele is an oasis. In a few steps you walk from the frenetic hub bub of the medina streets into a santuary, fragrant and gorgeous. In the courtyard there is a beautiful water feature and fountain adorned with rose petals that creates a calming and serene atmosphere. Surrounding the courtyard are nooks and spaces where you can sit and...

As the photos from other reviewers show, this beautiful riad is pure eye candy (we took as many pictures here as at any of the attractions in Marrakech) and the service is first rate - Hakim and Isham were both extremely helpful, and we met the owners who were gracious and charming as well. We concur with all the other...

Beautiful guesthouse, with lovely rooms and breakfast was really nice. Riad manager emailed us before and we made a few requests and they were completed with no problems Only downside is finding the Riad, map was provided once we arrived. 10 minute walk to the main square (once you know where you are going!)

We have just returned from our 3 night stay at the Riad Rafaele, I cannot recommend this Riad highly enough. The staff are all wonderful, so thoughtful and helpful from the moment we arrived. My friend and I are not experienced travellers and found the Medina quite tricky to find our way around, but we always knew that when we...

The overall experience was disappointing especially considering we were paying over €240.00 per night. I went to the Riad 10 days before we were due to check-in to locate it. I decided to pop in to check on the reservation at which point I discovered that they had no record of my reservation despite me having a copy of the...
