We chose this riad as it was reasonably priced and was located on the main street of the old medina , close to the parking and the port . The rooms were a bit small and very minimalistic in their decor . No complains , only issue we faced was communicating with the owner who stays in top floor ,...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I went with a friend for a two night break from Marrakech. Liked it so much stayed an extra night. Very characterful, clean and comfortable. Carol was a great hostess. Breakfasts were excellent with just right amount of variety. Well situated and great view from roof terrace. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed just 2 nights at the Ryad Lyon-Mogador In the medina = city center, which you reach on foot and have a "porter" bring your bags to the Ryad. What a delightful welcome with tea on the rooftop, explanations of where to go, eat and drink -- and bring your own wine! Our room was a nice size and...

We were welcomed with mint tea and Moroccan pastries and offered a selection of rooms to pick from. We were happy with the first we saw - clean and well decorated in a modern Moroccan style. The...

I booked this Riad on the last moment, wanting bad to escape Marrakech, so I had no expectations. It was incredible. Really incredible. Why? 1. The room was nice and cozy. Clean while everything was put in order each morning. 2. The breakfast: uhh la la! GREAT! They have the ordinary Marroccan pancakes, the juice, tea and coffee but each...

We have stayed in a few Ryad's around Morocco during our trip and whilst we have been happy with all of them, Ryad Lyon-Mogador has been our favourite. It is extremely clean and well kept, and the lady who cleaned our room every day - khadija - was so sweet and friendly. The breakfast was superb, a good selection of...
