My wife and I stayed here in February. This Riad is very beautiful and well kept. Our room was very picturesque with a traditional wooden ceiling and was quite large. The room was somewhat damp and cool. Unfortunately we weren't told by staff that the A/C provided heat until we figured it out on our last night of our stay...

Just come back from riad assala. We were really pleased with our stay. Right from the word go it was a pleasant experience when a member of staff collected us from the main road where the taxi dropped us off and helped us navigate the medina and led us to the riad. We would have had no chance without her....

The riad kindly organised a taxi to collect us from the airport, and then the lovely Fatima came and met us on the streets to guide us through the small alleys of the souk to find this lovely little oasis. The riad was stunning! We had the little room off the edge of the courtyard. It was like something out...

We found this place after Hostel Marrakech Rouge physically threatened us and didn't feel safe or comfortable. We found it on HotelTonight. This place was an absolute pleasure. It looks a little sketchy to get to the first time, but it's very close to the square - the manager and the night-man are incredibly kind and helpful. The rooms are...

Stayed in this hotel for a week. Staff were all excellent and looked after us from start to finish. Nothing was a problem. The room was small nut very clean. Breakfast was good with egg, various breads, honey, jam, home made yoghurt. Just enough to get you started for the day. The location of the hotel was right in the...

This was our first riad during our first trip to Morocco. Beautiful place. Food is good, maybe not the best but pretty good. One of the attendants, I think his name was Muhammad, was a great host and entertainer. Very smart man. Our room was impeccable, beautiful bathroom. The riad has a pool, but it seemed kind of cloudy so...

Annas was a great host, you really feel like if you are at home in this place and with such a great service. Good location, very near to the main square of Marrakech's medina. Quiet place, very relaxing, clean and comfortable rooms.

I had read that this place was under new management and decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did. We had a fantastic 4 night stay in one of the suites.
