Staff was brilliant. Always concerned with your comfort and always very nice. It is a proper Riad, very traditional lovely orange smell everywhere. Riad Utopia is good for those who really want to have a Marrakech experience

There are just so many options of places to stay in Marrakech but this lovely riad is a perfect choice. It is in a brilliant location close to the tourist spots but surrounded by local living which made our stay more enjoyable. The room and shared spaces are gorgeous and we loved having breakfast and mint tea on the balcony.... More

The photos really could not do this place justice. The Riad is stunning, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It's a short and very simple walk to the main square - lots of people talk about getting lost in Marrakesh but it's a really easy, safe and short walk to all the wonderful sights. The transfer from the airport was arranged... More

We enjoyed our stay for 3 nights in Riad Alaka. Especially the hospitality of both Younnes and Aziz was very generous and very friendly. Rooms were big enough, clean and good bed. A baby bed was arranged without any issues. It was nice to experience Marrakech from a Riad in the medina. Also location was good, between the famous square... More

Close to one of the main games of the medina. Greeted with mint tea. Staff incredibly hospitable and friendly. Tucked away so it's quiet. They cooked dinner for 13 friends and didn't mind that 2 canceled last minute due to travel problems. Dinner was delicious. Wine is available, and we enjoyed drinking wine on their rooftop terrace jacuzzi. Highly recommend.
