My boyfriend and I went to Riad Shama. We had a really great stay in Riad Shama. They picked us up from the airport and we got welcome tea and water. Everything was so good, and the people are so friendly. We hope to see you again!

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago with my partner, we absolutely loved this riad and I highly recommend it. The streets right outside the riad are busy and hectic but as soon as you step inside the door you don't hear any of the outside noise, it truly is so tranquil peaceful. Staff are friendly and helpful, giving... More

This riad is amazing, we had a car, so we parked it nearbly in medina for a small price (the front desk said how much is normal). We loved our room, the smell and spirit in the riad. Breakfast was amazing, enjoyed it every morning. Also we tried dinner for a few times and it was great too. Loved service... More

They say that finding a good Riad is the key to an enjoyable stay in Marrakech & Riad Shama has hit the nail on the head. The staff could not have been more helpful and really fulfilled my every need. From booking day trips, helpful advice, and everything else I needed. I was travelling solo and they made me feel...

The details matter.

I originally made my booking at the Riad Charai, however, upon arrival at the door of the riad I booked, I was told by a porter that the Riad was undergoing construction, and they would take us to their sister riad the Riad Shama.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment, even if Riad Shama is not concerned by your booking problems with Riad Charai and you were just relocated to Riad Shama to resolve your booking's situation. Your comment is not regarding the Riad SHAMA itself so it cannot help our future guests to make their choice but it is a Personal juridical... More

Riad Shama is an excellent place to find tranquility in the middle of the bustling and chaotic Marrakech. It will take you around 15-20 mins to get to Medina. You have the option to take a taxi or bus as public transport. I tried the bus from Medina to the bus stop, ca 25 m away from the riad and... More

We stayed here for our first visit to marrakech and it did not dissapoint. Located just out of the hustle and bustle of the main square it was a tranquil and serene escape. Very easy to find as near a main street and taxis all seem to know the place! The staff were amazing and couldnt have been more helpful.... More
