This was our first visit to Marrakech and we were delighted we choose Riad Ariha for our accommodation. From our arrival to our departure, we enjoyed our stay at this wonderful Riad. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and Amina and Abdul who manage the Riad for the owner Barbara did everything they could to make our stay...

This little place was one of the best we have stayed at in all our travels. We normally look for accommodation with good location, is priced reasonably and preferably has some ambiance (as opposed to the large impersonal hotels). Riad Ariha surpassed our expectations! We always felt the Riad was a calming haven coming from the frenetic Jemaa El Fna...

my husband and i stayed for a week here and we thought it was lovely. i can't for the life of me get to grips with someone saying amina was rude and unprofessional - she was just super. amina's english is better than abdul's, and i think abdul naturally is quite a shy and nervous bloke, hence the reason why...

I really think I need to redress a bit from the previous reviewer - if you want a hotel in a traditional style that is managed by kind, honest locals in an area of town that is off the beaten track, this is the place for you. I agree the lack of lock was a bit nervemaking at the beginning...

I booked Riad Ariha for the great riad experience and because of the good reviews it received. I now feel like some of the reviews are manipulated. This was not my first time staying in Marrakech or in Morocco, so I have an idea how other places are. I felt like Riad Ariha just wanted my money--they did not care...

Riadariha, Owner at Riad Ariha, responded to this review

We were most upset reading this review as we are truly concerned about the comfort of our guests. We apologize for the manager’s behaviour that they perceived as rude—we usually read positive reviews of her work. Each room has its own water tank which is designed to be sufficient for two people to have a shower. However once the tank...

Riad Ariha is a wonderful place to stay. Set in a superb location if you're after the real Marrakech. While staying at Riad Ariha we felt like we were staying in a friends home. We arrived late at night & were greeted with a smile & a pot of delicious mint tea. It's an intimate place with just 5 rooms,...
